I believe from the outset they have planned around a five season run, so two more to come after this one.

Trailer was pretty cool...I can never really tell what is going on in those things because of the editing and that one was particularly dark.

Looks like we'll be seeing a lot of Felucia again...wonder if they'll show any of those weird natives?

I think they really need to be careful about expanding the Sith line-up because every new person added just takes them further and further away from the Law of 2, or whatever it is called. They're gonna be up to what, 5 or 6 now? That's TOO MANY, Sidious! You of all people should know better. You can't have all these Sith running amuck all over the place. They're still trying to keep that stuff under wraps from the Jedi after all.

Got my Droid Tri-Fighter in the mail today from HTS, well packed and in mostly minty shape. This thing is awesome - I had no idea it came with deployable Buzz Droids!

Received shipping confirmation on my HMP Gunship also...should be here in a couple of days.

And that would be it for 2010!

Gunship just got dropped off at my desk.  Happy to report that I was wrong and it's actually in a shipping box with packing materials and it's in minty shape.   8)

WHEW! My Tri-Fighter should be arriving today as well so this is a major relief to hear.

I also got shipping confirmation on the HMP Gunship, so my victory is complete.  8)

Awesome, glad you got the hook-up, G.

Saw another Vos and Undead Geonosian on the pegs at the local Walmart after work. It was really hard not to buy both on the spot, even having 2 of each already.

I wasn't actually even there to toy shop, but old habits die hard.

For anyone interested, this is back in stock now at HTS!  ;D

Sold out again already!  :D

Pretty sure I got my order in just in time, but I'll still feel better when I get the shipping confirmation.

B-2-G-1 sale at K-Mart...  $6 figures when you break it down, so good luck.

Ok, stupid question time: it has to be 3 of the same thing right? Like I can't buy 2 deluxe vehicle sets and get a free battlepack, correct?

Scored the HMP Droid Gunship off HTS this must have just been updated as In Stock because it was not listed as such last night. Free shipping was still in effect, as was the SW2010 code, so it can be yours for less than $24.  ;D

My Tri-Fighter should be here today as well, so that's 2 vehicles I won't have to sweat tracking down at retail.

Thinking now that we will not see BARC with Jesse until 2011, so looks like I am done for the year!

Come on, Toy Fair!

I was majorly bummed about missing this last week, so it is an awesome stroke of luck that they got more before X-Mas. Free shipping still applies, and the SW2010 code is still good as well.

I got mine for $23.61 total, which is cheaper than I'd ever find one at any store, provided this vehicle was actually shipping to brick and mortars, which it is not.

Scored all of TCW Wave 5 (Vos, Cato, Draa, & Undead Geonosian) for a cool $20 tonight at TRU, courtesy of their 2 for $9.99 sale. I got there about 11pm (they're open til midnight) and the aisle was crammed with boxes right off the truck. I saw a couple of cases of new Legends and 2 cases marked TCW W5R1. I cracked one open and sure enough it was the newest wave, so I scored all the minty versions/openers I needed, although I'm not sure you can EVER have too many Undead Geonosians. (It is just that freaking cool!)

Interestingly enough, there was some kind of new promotional sticker on the Legends stuff. I can't remember the exact details, but it looked like some kind of game/Clone Wars type deal.

Still waiting for my Droid Tri-Fighter to show up from HTS. Guess I can cancel the Vos and Cato I had on back-order there.  ;D

FYI for anyone interested: I found 2 cases of this wave tonight at TRU, right off the truck. The box was marked "W5R1". Great timing as they still had the 2 for $9.99 sale going on. Might be worth checking around your local TRU tomorrow to knock out this wave for $20.

First sighting I have heard of this wave outside of Walmart...

I will be pissed if my Tri-Fighter shows up with just a shipping label on the outer box as I am a MOC collector. Ugh. every other time I have ordered from HTS they have packaged the stuff very protectively. Otherwise I'll just be buying this again when it hits retail...

How is your local TRU store's Vintage stock?

Mostly ESB, a smattering of ROTS, and available space for more on the pegs. Their vintage stuff is not moving at all right now, it's been the same batch sitting there for weeks seemingly. More or less the same at the other TRU across town as well.

Yeah, I think it will be an unusually epic fail if they go all the way til X-Mas with the current stock. They do have about 50 Boba Fett UBP's if you need 'em though.  ::)

How do you know that TRU will not get this wave?

I didn't say that they would NOT get it, I said they have been unable to obtain any of those figures around here so far, despite trying. I have a friend who works there that happens to be an avid SW buff, and he was just voicing his frustration about this the other day. The local store is literally right next to Wal-Mart, which has stocked at least 5-6 cases of the ROTJ Wave over the past few weeks. TRU just cannot get any of these into inventory.

TRU is pulling in huge numbers of shoppers right now, and around here the pegs are an atrocious wasteland, 1 wave behind on Vintage and at least 2 waves behind now on TCW. I suspect that is not just an unfortunate coincidence. (Maybe this is Hasbro's payback for ignoring the "street date" back in August - my friend has wondered this aloud as well)

Holy Crap! Anybody following this Scott McWilliams flap over at RS? What a douche! (Do not sue me - that is not libel)

Glad I have never dropped $$$ on any vintage prototypes, sounds like a lot of stuff in circulation now is complete bunk. That sucks...

The only problem with this teory is that leia has memories of her mother, so how can she possibly die giving birth. she dies when leia is a small child

Oh yeah, I forgot about that detail.  

That's easy - she is just remembering Breha Organa, not Padme. That's how I like to think of it anyway.
