Oddly enough, I scored the new Obi-Wan w/Barc Speeder and SideCar Deluxe set tonight at TRU. I had not heard of the Wave 1 Revision 2 hitting yet, so this was a cool surprise.

What sucks is it also means I missed the Mando with Speeder set that I am really stoked for...durnit.  >:(

Kinda frustrating that we have THREE K-Marts here and none of them have gotten even a whiff of these yet. Plenty of room on the pegs too.

In all the hubbub surrounding SDCC last week, I negelected to mention my latest Vintage score - the Imperial Sniper.  :D

This completes my collection of mini-rigs, and a fine addition it is too.

One step closer!

I agree, but that is why they should be much more in control of their own images.  They should get a blog, and post pictures as soon as they are done...and beat all the fan sites.

Is it just me, or were there no TCW carded figures in the presentation?

They showed a carded Cad Bane just as an example of the new packaging style, but no actual "new" figures. I was really hoping for something from Waves 5 or 6.

It was cool to get a look of the upcoming Clone Trooper's flamethrower weapon. That must be a pretty big bubble to squeeze that droid in too. I thought the R2 from that wave was supposed to be new too though?  ???

Didn't see a separate thread for this, but has the new Clone Troopers and Droids BP in stock and up for sale now - $23.99. I am considering the site to store option now, except I dread getting a dinged box somehow.

They have a boatload of other swag up now too, including the RC Hailfire Droid.

Thanks for the alert on the front page guys - great scoop!

What a complete an utter suckfest!!!

Biggest waste of time EVER! Thank God I'm only sitting at work.  ;)

I missed the first few minutes, but from what I saw there was absolutely nothing new shown at all. About the only thing I noted of passing interest was the slide confirming the Xanadu Blood for the TCW line.

Last year's slide had a LOT more sneak peeks. I realize this year is different with CV coming up, but that excuse only goes so far. There has to be SOMETHING "new" out there they could share.

Saw Smash and Jayson schooling the chat forum...nice work representin' fellas.

I believe the Hasbro slideshow presentation is slated for this evening, but not sure about the exact time. Anyone else have a clue?

Picked these up last night at K-Mart and I really like the Plo Koon & Speeder Bike set even more than I expected. I think they really upgraded him nicely, and the bike redeco is kinda cool. The Cad Bane set is right there though, love those retractable guns. The Skiff seems a bit ho-hum to me somehow. Kinda "retro sci-fi" almost.

Yep, the K-Mart buzz got me motivated too...I drove across town last night and scored all the new Deluxe sets for around $53. (Ouch, BTW) Great to have these, all in very good condition packaging-wise too.

No sign of Jodo Kast yet, but apparently he has been spotted already out of state, so the Hunt continues.

Nothing new whatsoever at TRU. Kinda weird they are not trying to capitalize on their corner of the market by restocking the TVC stuff around here, they kidn of shat their wad and that was it.  :-\

and no sign of Kul Teska or the AT-AT either.

Nice...I caught that earlier today too. Funny that it doesn't specify it as Clone Wars but then again neither does the Kit Fisto placard.

The new JTA gallery is up now too and has some great shots.

Bump for SDCC.

Did anyone else see the Aayla Secura figure on display at Comic-Con?  I could SWEAR they have revised her facial paint apps in some way. I never liked the eyes on the ones I bought, but the new re-release version they showed looked really good. It's subtle, but very noticeable to me as I am really keen on this figure.

Guess I'll have to compare side-by-side to be sure.

Thanks Jayson, I was thinking AT-AP but couldn't quite remember. I still have the Target exclusive TCW version from a few years back, man that was hard to find.

I guess this would be in the $24.99 starfighter type price range?

Sigh...I feel like a kid after unwrapping a hundred presents on X-Mas morning - "is that all?"  :-[

Maybe I'm just paying more attention this year, but I didn't feel nearly the level of excitement after seeing this year's displays. I mean, no real surprises at all.

I think literally the only thing I saw that was a complete surprise was that Camo AT-RT with Boil for the TCW line. Everything else had already been spoiled, either through advance pics or product listings.

Hopefully they are holding some good stuff back for CV, but I kinda doubt it since the Slave I is obviously going to be a focal point there and that is old news.

Would like to have seen any of the figures from TCW Waves 5 or 6, the HMP, Xanadu Blood, etc. Those last 2 seem to have really fallen off the map for some reason.

Isn't there still the big slide show yet to come? I guess we'll get more sneak peeks then.

Good stuff, just not feeling the off-the-wall hype like last year.

So...very interesting to see Mr Kast displayed prominently with all the TCW exclusives. I know he's not technically part of the line but the packaging and proximity of the display to the other TCW stuff is all the convincing I need. I'm in.  ;D

Wasn't sure where else to stick this, so here goes.

I have seen a couple of pictures of a new SW Vehicle I have never heard of or seen before. I am hoping someone can help identify what this is and what line it will be released under:

Props to GH for the awesome photo, BTW. It looks like a hybrid of an AT-TE and AT-RT. Very cool. It appears to be in the general vehicle section though, with no packaging display, so not sure where/when this would be coming out.

Thanks in advance for any info!
