Ahhh, good score tonight...Creature Cantina cardboard backdrop for $10! My base is in great shape, so this was a sweet deal to complete that playset.

That leaves me with exactly 30 items to go on The List!

Interesting , I checked out EE this morning and these are already listed as temporarily out of stock so I guess that first batch went all to pre-orders.

I also dug around last night and found a few carded Wave 12 on eBay (Thi-Sen, etc). But no carded Wave 11 figures. Odd.

At any rate, I am guessing these will start to show up soon at the brick and mortars.

Adam, do you have any more details on the case assortment ratios?

There are new leaked photos of what I assume is the finished product of this and Cad Bane's starfighter up now on Yakface, courtesy of Jayson. (Thanks dude!)

They both look awesome, although I'm much more excited for the HMP (Heavy Missile Platform) since it is a new sculpt (to me).

Thanks for the good news! I wonder if this means both waves will be hitting on top of each other at retail too. Or will there be some separation?

I am guessing the next sign will be seeing these pop up carded on eBay, which has yet to happen, so probably a ways off yet from Wally and Target.

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...

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.
