Yeah, may as well pile on here and state that I think this line and everything about it completely SUCKS. Pegs are jammed full of this junk and it is not selling at all. I don't see how any store is ever going to find peg space for Wave 2.

Fun trip to TRU today.

I figured I would stop by over lunch to return the 5 new TCW figures I bought over a week ago and re-purchase them with the new Buy-2 Get-1 Free deal. Best case scenario I expected to get $9.99 back in my pocket and an extra free action figure to take home.

Somehow in the process of handling the return though, I ended up with $20.99 and the extra figure. So yeah, I ended up getting 6 figures for $30...not too shabby at all. Gotta love the New Math!

It was kinda fun picking something out of pure whimsy...I ended up going with the still pegwarming Puko Naga, coming off his recent appearance on the show. Did not realize he had unarticulated legs...ugh.

Hmmm, interesting. I don't see any dates on those pages anywhere, but I can't help but feel hopeful this might mean we see them before April.

Good find!

This wait has been too long, it's pointless and irritating.

I didn't even see peg space or a tag for these things at the Walmarts I checked today. If they're not coming in some kind of a pre-filled display, that does not bode well.

Made a few stops over lunch just to see what was cooking on the Big Release Day. Jack squat apparently.

Walmart came in cheapest for new TCW figures at $8.96. Target was a close second at $8.99. TRU has the early lead at $9.99.

I saw the new Wave 1 figures all over, pretty much the same stuff at every store. Every Chewie I look at seems to have a different paint job than the last.  ::)

MEH.

That jet sub is in stock at BBTS

Only as part of the full case assortment though, right? Last time I checked it was not available individually.

Yeah, the Attack Recon Fighter and Republic Assault Submarine sets are part of Wave 2 apparently, and these are hitting now in the UK.

Since these are undoubtedly slated for a Toy Fair reveal in NYC, very low chances we will see these beforehand stateside, I would think. :(

No word on ETA/Wave info for the Republic Dropship yet, that I am aware...

Yeah, these things are probably stuck back in the warehouse next to all those TCW exclusive DVD 2-packs Hasbro made for them but mysteriously got "lost"...

I seem to remember watching this in elementary school for some reason.

Damn, the Wise Man, Mr. Pitt and the voice of Palps/Sidious on the Clone Wars, that's quite a body of work.

LOL, they finally justified that Nikto guard figure with some screen time.

I always love seeing the Jedi T-6 shuttle make an appearance because it helps keep hope alive they will one day make this. It's already logged way more appearances than that Mandalorian Assault Transport they allegedly made.

So I guess Palps wasn't in on the Jedi plan either?

Wow, I actually had to do research to figure out that inside joke.

Is that really his picture?

Oh snap, TRU rolled out the new front end display this morning! Always nice to see a commanding SW presence at the toy store.

This time they did not fail abysmally at stocking up with new product, thankfully. I saw a full case of TPM figures, multiple cases of new MH and TCW, the 4 new Class 1 sets, the 4 new Class 2 sets, the 4 new BP's, and even the Podracer exclusive set, hot off the truck.

I also saw the 2 new Walmart exclusive Dewback/Vulture Droid this mornign for the first time.

It's great to see all this new product, I just wish I cared about any of it. I already got my measly 5 TCW figures and the 1 battlepack this past week, so not much else out there for me right now. (#%*$ Mando Assault Transport!!!)

For those concerned about the new packaging, it is easier to find the CW items than I thought. There is a large CW# on the side of the bubble. If you angle yourself correctly you can scan the rows rather quickly.

That's true...if you know what to look for and have a discriminating eye, they're not that hard to spot. Sadly, I don't have much confidence that the store drones restocking the shelves have the knowledge or interest to keep them separate from MH.

I'm still really bent there is no longer any TCW tagline for the Battlepacks or Deluxe Sets though. There is literally no way to distinguish between Clone Wars and Vintage swag anymore. Which I'm sure is exactly what they want. I refuse to be "tricked" into buying non-animated stuff that is outside my focus though, so if it requires a greater level of individual effort to keep the two lines straight, so be it.
