If the CW line were in this look, oh my God.

Where's the vomiting emoticon when you need it?   :-X

I loves the true vintage stuff, I loves the TCW stuff. But I don't want some weird mash-up of the two.

Think how messed up all those pegs would get!

Can anyone make out the numbering for Barriss, Ob-Wan, Hevy or El-Les? I can almost squint and see Barriss', but I'm giving myself a migraine.

I'm fine with it, we have at least 4 around here, including one right across the street from where I work, and they all got good stock of Jodo, although it took awhile for him to show up here compared to other cities. I'll be happy to help people out too if they need it.

Looks like there is no numbering on the figure, which makes perfect sense considering it is an exclusive. I would love to see a shot of the cardback if possible though.

Walked into Toys R Us today and it was like the Land that Time Forgot...not only did they have shelves filled with Y-Wings (not marked as clearance, but who knows) but they also had a full case of the last red/white BP's from a year ago! (Holocron Heist, Jedi Showdown, etc)

This stuns me not only because of how old they are, but because this is the only time I have ever seen those on the shelves around here. I had to order mine off HTS. Crazy.

I wonder if they just found a box in the back or someone is clearing out the local warehouse.

Also of note: Walmart has a new planogram reset: with NO LEGENDS figures! That blew my mind too. They have 1 row for TCW (4 pegs) and 1 row for TVC (4 pegs) and that's IT. There were no Legends figures to be seen anywhere. I have to say, I didn't miss them. I wonder if this is just a temporary deal or what.

That's not Jet. It's one of his Special Ops Troopers.

Oops, looks like I need to get my glasses checked.

No longer excited.

Yeah, thanks a lot dude!!! That is awesome.

I spy with my little eye, on the back row, something that begins with "Commander Jet"!  ;D

Yeah, at first I wasn't all that thrilled about these films.  Now I can't wait for them.  I got excited when Peter Jackson said he would direct them. 

It's just one movie right?

Does that Stan guy work for Hasbro?  Guess I never really cared enough to ask...BMF Sandcrawler would rock, but I can't see that happening.  It's a rolling brick.

Yeah, and they already indicated the only "BIG" item this year was for TCW, so maybe this is all BS or just loitering in their metaphorical "parking lot".

Are they even going to make mid-size vehicles for this line anymore? They have really dwindled in terms of recent offerings...

I just posted these but it disappeared?

I hope to see this thread exploding with lots of good comments today, in light of the RS Vintage pre-Toy Fair rumor news on their front page:

Captain Tarpals?  :)

Orray? New Taun-taun sculpt?  :D

New Speeder Bike sculpt?  ;D

BMF-style Jawa Sandcrawler?!?!  :o

Let's discuss!

So RS apparently has pics in their forum section showing the forthcoming TCW Barriss Offee, El-Les, and Captain Lock, who may be a K-Mart exclusive.

Of course I cannot access their forums here at work, so I cannot comment beyond that, but I am super psyched to see these when I get home tonight.

The pre Toy Fair leaks have begun!

How did this get past Tunghori?

Can we get unannounced TCW figures from China now too? Where do I sign up?

But why not just be patient, instead? You said yourself you got a couple new vehicles from HTS cheaper than retail. I, myself, got the Droid Gunship and Xanadu Blood for like $18 each in early December. What you were proposing paying BBTS was pushing $30 a vehicle, taking into account half of the case has been out forever. So, when you think about it, you're paying an even-higher premium for the new vehicles. By paying it, you also support that ridiculous pricing.
Relax, monitor the reports around your area and, when they get close, then search more intensely.

I think you misunderstood me. I'm definitely not planning on buying anything off point is more that if it shows up there, it can't be too far off from places like HTS or SWS or whateves, where it actually can be obtained for essentially what you'd pay at retail. I'm definitely NOT advocating paying premium prices out of sheer impatience.

I think there's potential middle ground there that offers good opportunities - you're getting the stuff before it hits retail so you save time and hassle on that end, but you're waiting just long enough for it to hit the more mainstream sites with less overhead and the ability to charge less than the early arrival gouging prices.

This is exactly what I did with the Tri-Fighter and HMP, and I couldn't be happier with the decision.
