Found wave 2 tonight. Still don't have wave 1, because Newforce cancelled my order.
My thoughts are that Jedi Council #2 wins out over #1 and vice-versa with the War Room sets. I've waited since 1999 for a Yaddle figure so today was a particularly exciting day in terms of SW collecting.
Hours later, it's still in stock, so I would figure they got solid cases. I'll bet they got solid cases of Eowyn, PEW, and Galadriel, too, which is why those figs are still in stock days after going up on the site.
SOTE Darth Vader on GC (will ONLY trade this one for one for a Burger King LOTR Mail Away Uruk Hai Warrior.)
Saga: Ashla & Jempa Aalya Secura Boba Pit of Carkoon green hue Dexter Jettster w/ insert Leia & Chewie Trash Compactor Set
POTF2: Stormtrooper OC w/ hologram sticker
LOTR: TTT carded Gollum TTT carded Theoden in Armor Loose complete Gimli from Gimli/Uruk set
WANTS: Burger King Mail Away Uruk Hai Warrior (See above. Must be complete! Still in package if possible.) FOTR Frodo carded TTT Frodo carded repack from the boat set SW CW Clone Troopers Army Set (Green Clone) SW CW Jedi Knights Army Set
For me the Value packs win out. One, because I can't find the mutli packs anywhere, and two, because I only wanted one of each rank for my modest army. So all I really want of the multi-packs is the green kneeling set.
It could be those things, but Gladitor won, and it was made in Malta amongst other places. The English Patient won, and was made in Tunisia and Italy. All with Hollywood money, like LOTR has been. For my part I think it's the same gentryed snobbery that exists in publishing. If it's popular, they reckon, it can't be good.
