Amazon has pre-orders available for wave 2.  They've offered up a date of August 18th for availability.

107
Oh well.  I'll just get the regular Jabba unless they decide to make more available.

108
Holy sticker shock!  That price tag makes it very easy to skip a box full of stuff that I already own via other avenues.

Vader looks impressive.  Most impressive.  Definitely a step up from the previous ROTS version of Vader.

As for Ree Yees?  The head sculpt looks good.  But the hands relative to the forearms & sleeves just look.... off.  Probably because they look like they would never fit through those sleeves.  As for the comparison shots with the POTF2 version?  On one hand, I think it shows just how good some of those late wave POTF2 sculpts actually were. But the articulation on this new Ree Yees looks pretty awesome.

The Black Series 6" Figures / Re: 6" Black Series Deluxe Line

I've seen reports of Target reset dates before.  In those cases I've checked out some area stores and found mixed results.  Some stores reset on those reset dates and others do it within the next couple of days.  I think it varies store to store based on inventory, staffing, customer volume in the stores at given times, etc.

I saw the Showdown 2-pack for the first time in a store the other day.  It looks cool.  But then you look right above that pack and hanging on the pegs are the individual versions of Han and Greedo.  And that just comes across as ridiculous.

What I'd like to know?  Does this 2-pack come with all of Han's accessories that are packed with the 6" basic figure?  Because if it does, I may just trade off my individual Han Solo and buy the 2-pack.  I still haven't bought Greedo, and I'm in no hurry to do so.

Han doesn't include the stormtrooper belt or E-11 blaster so it's even less of a value than buying the singles.

Really?  Thanks for the info, Jay!  With that in mind I think I'll be skipping the 2-pack then.

The next question?  Where to get a Greedo?  Amazon and eBay have low enough prices.  Although with the packaging change coming soon, there's no doubt going to be a Target clearance coming as well.  How low does anyone think the Black Series 6" figures might go there?

Ah!  Thanks for the clarification.

I got similar info from a friend.  Most stores in our area already have the new 6" Deluxe as well as the new wave of 6" basic figures on pallets that are designated for the next reset.  And that reset is loosely scheduled around tomorrow, August 3rd.

115
On another note, are we going to do a poll for the 6" figure line?

A quick question regarding the TPM list:  I saw a couple of entries for R2-G2.  When I googled that droid I came up with images of a droid that's been identified elsewhere as R2-T0, which came in one of the WalMart exclusive Droid Factory 2-packs.  Is this a case of mistaken identity, or a call for a resculpt?

I'm changing mine up a little bit from last year with at least a couple of new additions that might stand a better chance of being made:


1 - PK Droid



2 - Gardulla the Hutt



3 - Tey How



4 - Naboo Security Officer



5 - Maoi Madakor - Captain of the Radiant VII



6 - Antidar Williams - Pilot of the Radiant VII



7 - Erdan



8 - Nobot



9 - Depa Billaba (Super articulated / able to sit in Jedi Council seat)



10 - Eeth Koth (Super articulated / able to sit in Jedi Council seat)

Scored my 6" Stormtrooper at long last.  Made a trade with a long time friend to get this one because to date I have STILL not seen a 6" TBS Stormtrooper in the wild.

119
Glad to see that I'm not the only one watching that page like a hawk.

That's what I thought the price might be.  Thanks guys!
