It's so sad we're posting about buying figures from Waves that were released MONTHS ago.

WTF Hasbro? Why not put out the Hondo/Aayla wave NOW? And then let the Palps/Thi-Sen wave out in late February/early March.

I don't see the strategic advantage in stifling BOTH of these waves until after ToyFair.

RELEASE THE NEW TOYS!!!

I wonder if the 'heater pack' means it's the snow clone.  I would be all about these guys (with the exception of the Magna Guard/Bane).

It is...YakFace posted a clarification that the clone is actually Rex in Snow Gear.

I"m just wondering who all is going to cover this. Apparently JD isn't going to be there, and now GH isn't either. I don't really want my news from RS and I self exiled myself from SSG, so I won't be looking there either.

Check out Jedi Temple Archives...they are crushing every other site right now with the breaking news.

Ugh, these things are everywhere around here...you can't swing a dead cat without hitting TLC swag languishing on the shelves.

I'm angry that it's the same old crap day after day after day languishing on the shelves. But I've still never seen Concept IG-88.

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:

CAD BANE'S STARFIGHTER (XANADU BLOOD)   Wave 1, Asst 5
DROID GUNSHIP (HEAVY MISSILE PLATFORM)   Wave 1, Asst 5
CLONE SWAMP SPEEDER   Wave 2, Asst 5
PLO KOON'S JEDI STARFIGHTER   Wave 2, Asst 5


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 Yakface.com) 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.
