The Vintage Collection '10-'13 / Re: 2010 Boba Fett Mail-Away Offer?
« on: January 19, 2010, 10:35 AM »
This niftly little slide pretty much confirms the Boba Fett mail-away. ;D I'm hoping that he includes a diorama like the mail-away Captain Rex and upcoming Nahdarr Vebb's... the background of the Star Destroyer where he and the bounty hunters meet Vader would be nice.

The thing that gets me, is that it doesn't look like they are really doing ANYTHING for the first 8 or 9 months. Where is the slide that says WHEN the actual new figure Waves will be released? That's the one I want to see.

Or would it just be a big friggin dartboard?

I was able to snag the Barada POTF coin for a decent price Sunday, so now I can officially scratch him off The List. And I have definitely decided NEVER to try buying these things separately again. (Except for Anakin and Yakface, due to the absurd expense) Too much stress...

Oh yeah, that thing I've NEVER seen on the actual show.

Bad brain!

BBTS has these in stock now apparently...I believe Brian's Toys as well.

How much longer for the brick and mortars?

Yakface has the following TCW 2010 Vehicle Wave info:


I cannot, for the life of me, recall WTF a "Droid Gunship" is supposed to look like...

If you like that, you should love Cad Bane's starfighter Xanadu Blood which is due out in the TCW 2010 Vehicle Wave 1. (according to It's essentially a glorified Magnaguard Fighter repaint.

YakFace has a great blurb up now concerning TCW Vehicle Case Assortments for 2010. The Swamp Speeder is listed as part of Wave 2, along with Plo Koon's Jedi Starfighter. (meh, did we really need THAT?)

Oh man, that AT-RT looks even better than expected. I was wondering about those markings too...odd.

Great photos, it's awesome to know these are on the way.

Eventually.  ::)

Finally snagged my Brown Hair Farmboy Luke tonight, and a POTF Poncho Luke w/Coin to boot. That's 2 more figures off the list, a good amount of progress. (But expensive)

Barada showed up in the mail today...a worthy addition. He looks sharp and the color is crisp.

I don't like it. It's garish and looks cheesy. I really could care less though, as long as they hurry up and get some new product on the shelves.

Is Jaxxon that ******* rabbit? If so, epic fail...

Thank you. That is the stupidest looking thing I have ever soon. Whoever dreamed up that abomination and threw it into the SW Universe should be skinned alive, burned, and buried next to Hitler.

I just hope if they make Jocasta Nu it is in the animated style since she appeared in TCW this season.

Funny, my local Walmart is just the opposite - most of their figs seem to have vanished with the most recent planagram reset, or whatever you call it. They had NO vehicles, BP's etc so I am hoping this is a good sign that they have space for new product.

Picked up a Matchstick tonight at WM.  First time I've seen him at retail.  They had quite a few waves of whatever wave he's from.

Weird, I swung by Walmart at lunch today, and I actually saw him for only the third time ever. I went ahead and snatched that bad boy up to replace my slightly bendy carded one. So now I have 2.

Wonder what he is fetching on eBay?

So when is this new TCW packaging supposed to debut? After Wave 12? (Thi-Sen, Palps, etc) Or with the other Fall re-boots?

I picked up the Battle Damaged TIE fighter last night...complete w/original box. I normally eschew the auctions with original packaging as it tends to drive the price up, but this one was surprisingly affordable. ($35) Looks pretty damn minty too.

Lots of stuff I have my eyes on this week too...could be a big week for vintage scores.
