Nice, what are the last 3

Cloud City
Sears Cantina Adventure
Death Star

I had the last 2 back in the day, but only a few remnants of the Death Star remain. I never had the Bespin playset though, so I'm looking forward to scoring that one.

I'm also kicking around the idea of picking up the Palitoy variants at some point. I really like the chipboard Death Star playset they put out.  :)

This is a step in the right direction at least. Carry forward the coolest figures from the previous wave - brilliant! If they had only done this with the first 3 waves this year, I could have easily obtained the multiple Hondos, Aaylas, and Magnaguards I want.

I kind of shudder at the thought of ANOTHER Fisto jamming the pegs though. I hope this guy sells better than the previous incarnation.

They should subtitle it: "A Hobby for Lottery Winners"

This book sounds like the literary equivalent of a strip club: lots to drool over, but you know you're never going to actually get any of it.  ;D

Ahhhh yesss, finally picked up the "other" Jabba's Dungeon playset (the tan one) for a very reasonable price on eBay, with the original box to boot. VERY psyched about this one, has proven to be kind of elusive for some reason.

Only 3 more playsets to go...

Wowzers! Scored both Cold Weather Gear Anakin and Obi-Wan at a Target that has not put up any 2010 Star Wars products at all. If I remember correctly, I saw Captain Rex, Commander Cody, Cad Bane, Anakin, Obi-Wan, and Cold Weather Anakin and Obi-Wan, all featuring Nahdarr stickers. Pleasantly surprised, except I was puzzled why only Cold Weather Anakin from TCW 2010 Wave 2 was present on the shelves, without a Sidious or Talz in sight. I wouldn't expect CWG Anakin to be the last on the shelves.

Because those snow figures are part of a new case assortment...the other figures from the original wave are not. Sucks, because I really want a Magnaguard for openers and I am continually denied.

Back up for pre-order over at BriansToys

Fixed that for ya.  ;)

Easy pass for the Variant hounds like myself, not even a whiff of a deco change.

So I guess they pretty much HAVE to release Waves 1 and 2 together. I don't even see the point in having a Wave 2 for that matter...if you can't work even 1 new figure into the assortment, just roll them up into Wave 1.

I just hope Hasbro has their reps culling the old blue/white TCW packages from the shelves before they get re-stocked after the launch. The last thing we need is 3 different packaging varieties with the same pegwarming figures.

According to RS, TCW12-19 are all re-packs. (The photos seem to confirm this numbering as well) So hopefully the first 3 Fall Waves will be 4 figures apiece, mostly new stuff.

I know Wave 2 was rumored to be all repacks too, but I can't remember what thread that was in...

How about forgetting about the love interest and showing more ******* robots beating the piss out of each other.

How about more robots beating the piss out of Meghan Fox?

I'd pay $9 for that.

Wasn't the Donkey wheel the thing that Jacob's brother was building to get off the island? Did Jacob finish the project for his brother?

Yes, it's unclear who finished it though. If I recall, it was actually Esau (Man In Black) who advised John to turn the wheel a few seasons back, albeit disguised as Jack's Dad. You have to think at least Jacob knew about it...

I saw another ad last night for the finale that clearly showed the wheel being turned, so I'm thinking we'll see it again.

Nice photos, loving the new Interceptor deco.

I'm wondering about wave/case assortments for the vehicle line come August though.

At one point, the new tank was listed as Wave 1 - "early August", along with the Droid Gunship and Xanadu Blood. Then Toyfair came around and there was no mention of the Xanadu Blood or the HMP.

By my count, we have at least 5 new TCW vehicles coming this Fall, including the Swamp Speeder and Plo Koon's Starfighter, plus the ones listed above. I'm guessing these will be split into at least 2 waves, along with the obligatory repacks.

If anyone has more detailed info about the individual waves or tentaive schedule, I'd love to know.  ;D

Hmmm, maybe they'll revisit the Frozen Donkey Wheel?

I appreciate Chuck and I'm sure it's a good show, but I'm not inclined to jump in at this point. That thing is living on borrowed time anyway.

I did watch HIMYM once upon a time, but the $%@#& writers ruined it for me and I had to stop watching. One of the only shows I have ever consciously quit watching because I was so aggravated. "Slapsgiving" was awesome though.

24 has ruled my Mondays for as long as I can remember...going to be different.
