So I'm confused after reading the EE listings...are we not getting this wave now? It looks like they have Bom and RFT listed with Wave 8, but there's no mention of Barriss or Fordo. Are those 2 just carry forwards and somehow Hasbro just leapfrogged a wave? So we would actually see Barriss and Colt AFTER these guys?

So that would be a realistic style BP and not the animated TCW style, right?

When did they start issuing Battle Game cards for non-TCW figures? Is that a new twist?

So the cold weather Fisto now jives a bit with the CW Plo and Echo...  I gotta hit Wookieepedia to figure out who the hell Serindipitous is.

He was the "Independence Day" inspired Bounty Hunter from the same episode as Embo. Little dude in a big dude suit. Should make for a very cool sculpt.

Anyone have a screen grab of this thing from the show? I am trying to picture it but all I can come up with is something like an AT-TE with mounted cannon. Pretty sure that is not right.

I'm just happy to see anything in the mid-size line for this year.

May 2011 can't be right on that though.

Wow, what a treasure trove of information! Where to start?

1) We're not only getting Hondo Ohnaka re-issued finally in Wave 10, but we're also getting the long awaited Commander Jet! (Oh yeah!)

2) R7-D4 in Wave 12 is a previously unreported figure. Finally, an astromech to go with Plo Koon's starfighter!

3) No mention of Chewie or Tarrful but we get a generic Kashyyk Warrior? Hmm.

4) Repack of Jar-Jar in Wave 12, but no mention of Aayla.

5) All waves listed as August 2011 which confirms my suspicion that we will not be seeing any more new figures before Comic-Con. :( That is a long dry spell.

Thanks for posting, can't wait to see these!

That actually makes more sense, I always thought it was weird that they would do CW figures from comics, but if it was actually planned as part of the comic pack line and not some kind of single carded figure, I could see it. Sounds like they would have paired this with cold weather Kit Fisto, who I guess we will also see eventually.

Thinking Echo is from one of those new BP's revealed recently...

Saw these last night...ho-hum. How many different costumes does the dude actually wear in this movie?

Red Skull looks cool but of course they couldn't stick that in Wave 1.  ::)

Yeah, they had Wave 1 out MONTHS before the movie was released, and now that the thing is out and the "iron is hot" they suddenly stop shipping new figs?

Dudes, everyone wants that Destroyer! Hook it up!

« on: May 17, 2011, 10:44 AM »'s just an expression. A reference to the old B/W silent movie villains, who always bore a trademark sinister mustache they would invariably stroke or twirl malevolently.

Loki in the comics was always clean shaven as I recall, but then again, so was Thor and somehow that got lost in the movie.

Very happy to see the Thunder roll on, that was an exciting series. I don't think Dallas wanted to play Memphis, they have some really tough matchups. OKC is more of a 2 man gang.

REALLY surprised to see the Bulls CRUSH the Heat that way. I figured all of these games would be close like the regular season, but that was just a beat down. I mean damn, are they really THAT much better than the Heat? Miami had a lot more time off to prepare for that game after all. I guess the Boston series was emotionally draining but damn, last night was embarrassing.

Hope they can get it together at least to make it competitive. Spoelstra really worries me though, that kid just seems in over his head.

Saw it Friday night, but I had to go to 2 different theatres to find a non-3D showing. (Damn I am sick of that crude, sucky 3D crap...just give it up already, please)

Thought it was good, a solid summer movie effort. If you don't overthink it too much, it's a pretty fun ride. I'm not so much of a Thor purist that I was horribly offended by any of the plot changes. I did want to see that winged helmet though.

Thought Loki came off as much more of a sympathetic villain than the mustache twirling arch enemy from the comics. Was actually kind of refreshing to have a villain with some depth.

LOL..."March '11 street date" my arse.

I feel like this thing is long overdue and at this point should be the next new Clone Wars item that hits the shelves. I doubt we will see any more new figures before SDCC, and who knows what's up with those battlepacks and deluxe sets that have been previewed so far.

I'd be happy if we got half of those...only Sugi, Chewie, and Mother Talzin seem like they have a real shot.

Wonder Woman was not picked up by NBC for the Fall. Dang.

Meh, Miami wins that series whether Rondo is healthy or not, so I don't think that had a major impact on the ultimate outcome. They didn't lose because of their play at the point.

Looking forward to the Bulls/Heat matchup...Chitown pwned them in the regs season, but it's a new deal now.
