Theres a classic Rhino, Mysterio and Electra coming for spring 2013! Mysterio is my favorite Spidey villain so this is great to see! Super stoked.

Yeah, these are nice, but theres not really a lot here that screams WOW to me. I don't really see anything new here, a lot of redoes that had a version not all that long ago, and lots of trooper repaints. Kind of ho hum, but the new droids are definitely nice. Here's hoping they're saving somthing nice for C6, I'm really hoping for a new Cantina dude or two, and maybe a Jabba goon. Maybe wave 3. The exclusives however are all rather excellent, especially the Ewok hoards.

Looks like a nice figure, and the stuff she gets is pretty cool, I may bite.

I so knew these would be K-Mart, since they're perfect companions to the AT-ST. Well hopefully someone round here might not mind helping out a Canadian bro out with this, since we haven't had any K-Marts up here for a good long time. Love that Ewok set though.

Hoping for T3-M4 myself to complete the droid duo from KOTOR. A man can dream.

I'm kind of hoping for the 3.75 ones and the 6" ones to be nearly identical in quality. That way it's win win for everyone. I also hope that these are successful enough to maybe get a LOTR trilogy wave or two out there. I'd love me some Star Wars scaled Fellowship.

The Fwoosh has a cuple pics up,not sure if they're the 6 inchers or the 3.75 ones, but they look unexpectedly nice. If the 3.75 ones look this good, then count me in for the lot of em.

When are we going to get a new Yak Face? I don't think we've had once since POTF2.

Excellent question. You get a gold star.

Didn't Hasbro confirm at some point last year that either Yakface or Ree Yees was coming? I seem to recall something to that effect in one of the QnA's.

One thing that would go a long way to fixing all of this is to axe Movie Heroes/Legends all together. Hasbros merchandise is competing with itself, you've got Obi Wans and Battle Droids and Mauls across multiple lines competing with each other. It makes no sense. Get rid of this extra assortment, because whether it's crappy versions or the ultra articulated versions, it makes no difference. If every kid in town already has an Obi Wan, they're not gonna buy another one just cuz it's on a different card or slightly more poseable, or has a slightly different accessory. I can understand having main characters available at all times, but mix it up a bit.

    In a wave of 5-6 new figures, fill out the rest of the case with whichever mains you want, throw in you're vader and maul if you want, then come the next assortment, bring out Luke and Anakin again, but never the same one back to back. This will go far in avoiding over saturation of any particular character. You could take it a step further and avoid putting any of the same character in a case. If you've got Jedi Luke in a case, don't put farm boy luke in there with him. Save him for the next batch. Just the slightest bit of thought being put into these cases can really make a difference. Two lines tops, one movie, one animated, distinctly different packaging so as not to confuse the brands.

I wonder what the chances are of ol snags showing up on a vintage card before the lines up. I also wonder what the chances are of a variant blue version.

Awwh crap, it just had to be a cantina guy didn't it. Well I'm game for this one, it's actually not s bad, never hurts t have another tusken and I suppose I can just repaint the Fett into a new Mando. Here's hoping they're easy enough to find.

Heres a couple that I've done that work.

Pons Limbic fits on the Vintage Snowtrooper and vice versa.
TVC Rebel Fleet Trooper fits on Rebel Honor Guard and vice versa.
TVC Naboo Guard fits on the Endor Commando and the Rebel Fleet Trooper, Endor Commando fits on Naboo but is a bit loose and the Rebel Fleet trooper fits on the Naboo body no problem.

This new Teebo actually looks like the on screen character, which is nice. POTJ Teebo is a really nice figure as has been said, but he's a bit too pudgey and has a full hood instead of just the head peice, so I'll be looking forward to this one, and see no need to replace POTJ Teebo on my shelf either since they appear to be distinct enough from each other that he can pass as a different Ewok. I don't mind him being a bit bigger than the others either, Just as there are some above average humans, I'm sure there's a couple above average Ewoks.

I used to do this, and I also used to keep all my ship boxes and such, because I have OCD and this mentality that "you never know when you might need a box for something". Space was becoming an issue though so I trashed the lot of it and now try to make a point to get rid of old packaging.
