I think the Vader may be a little different, since they're passing this one off as a ROTS version.

It's a repack of the ROTS Vader from Wave 5.  Easy to forget since everyone was so much more excited for SnowSpeeder Wedge, NOT Doallyn Skiff Guard, and Ree-Yees.  ;)

With all the rumors about the 12-to-36 potential figures coming this Fall, I'm not really sure on who all will end up in this wave now. 

Looks like RS has some early carded shots of part of the wave... 

#01 R5-G19
#02 Luke Skywalker (Wampa'd Face)
#03 Darth Vader [repack]
#04 Darth Malgus [repack]
#05 Starkiller (Galen Mark) [repack]
#06 Yoda (Dagobah) [repack]

No sign of the Hoth Han or Dagobah Vader that were rumored pre-toy Fair...  yet.

I'm planning on picking up some of those Command figures for my kids.  $5 for a bag of 9 figures isn't terrible.

When I was little, my brother and me and our friends wasted tons of hours playing army men outside.  I love the fact that the Hasbro guys tried to replicate some of the "classic" army men poses with some of the Star Wars figures.

Plus, they're great fun to tie to firecrackers/bottle rockets, shoot with a bb gun, or melt with a magnifying glass in the hot summer sun. ;)

On the new DPCIs that popped up...

#1 - Funny how many people forgot about the army men style Star Wars Command line and start freaking out about the possibility of a Rebels Star Destroyer playset or new 3.75" Rebels Battle Packs or something.

#2 - On the "Class I making a comeback" stuff...  seems odd that there would be a DPCI planogram slot for the Class I (which we haven't see confirmed yet), but there is no spot for the Class II vehicles (which we did see at Toy Fair - TIE, walker, Phantom).

Not sure if this has been posted in here yet... just saw it as I was catching up on some stuff from last week - boxed photo and listing at Walgreens.com:

Is it too soon to fire on general manager?

For Brent:
What does Kevin Cheveldayoff do, exactly?
An analysis of Jets GM Kevin Cheveldayoff’s trading tendencies

Glowing analysis of your guy - "the most disconcerting part of Cheveldayoff’s tenure as GM of the Winnipeg Jets is that he has not made one NHL player for NHL player trade" in almost three years.

Many local Twin Cities liquor stores have the kegs of 1919 so it's pretty easy to get.  Good good stuff.

My two favorite local Root Beers at the moment = Killebrew and 1919 Draft.

Ice cold Killebrew is a perfect match for an outdoor baseball game on a nice summer night and the 1919 Draft (gotta get it by the keg) is a common sight at summer parties round these parts.

The Black Series 3.75" Figures / Re: Black Series Rumors

Oh, so Han's relegated to the "stan" approved rumor lists...  great.  Won't hold my breath waiting then.   ::)

It's a cool list.  But really, until we start to actually see something from SDCC?  I have to reserve my judgement. 

Yeah... everyone is getting all excited about prospective names on a list, but when eveyone sees that they've turned out like Yoda and Dagobah Luke did, they'll go right back to hating everything again. :P ;)

McFarlane announces Walking Dead brick building sets...

Quote
TEMPE, Ariz., July 8, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Famed artist and award-winning toy designer Todd McFarlane and McFarlane Toys are unveiling a revolutionary evolution in brick building toys based on television's most watched drama, AMC's The Walking Dead. Known as a game-changer for its realistic action figures, including those based on The Walking Dead, McFarlane Toys is adding a new licensed category to the company's portfolio. The new The Walking Dead toys will extend McFarlane's high standards of artistic vision, realistic accuracy and incredible detail into the brick building toy aisle alongside of other leading manufacturers. McFarlane Toys' The Walking Dead building sets and figures will be available this fall only at Toys"R"Us stores nationwide and online at Toysrus.com

McFarlane Toys Unveils Revolutionary Brick Building Sets for AMC’s The Walking Dead

The initial McFarlane Toys' The Walking Dead brick building line will feature realistic sculpts, light-up and shaped features, iconic environments, and dozens of your fan-favorite characters and walkers. Both collectors and fans of the cult phenomenon can literally recreate their favorite scenes with this new highly detailed and realistic The Walking Dead product line.

"Twenty years ago I walked into the action figure aisle, saw an artistic void, and asked, can these toys look cooler? The answer was yes, they could, and I've survived twenty years next to the big boys creating those artistic toys," said McFarlane. "Now I'm walking into another aisle with that same question, and the answer is still yes!"

"Will these be the best building sets out there? I'll leave it up to the consumer to decide," said McFarlane. "But, will it look cooler? Yes. Will it be more detailed? Absolutely. Will it be more realistic? I guarantee it!"

The Walking Dead series one product line will feature building sets, expansion packs, and figure blind bags for consumers to build their own The Walking Dead apocalypse:

The Building Sets: MSRP $9.99-64.99 – Daryl Dixon with Chopper, The Governor's Room, and Prison Tower with Gate. Expand your brick building apocalypse with additional figure and accessory packs.

Blind Bag Figures: MSRP $2.99 – Daryl Dixon, Michonne, The Governor, Carl Grimes, Riot Gear Walker, Michonne's Pet Walker, and Herd Walkers.
