Good points all, and this really isn't something that annoys me too much, it just seems capricious when there are so many other worthy options out there since Season 1.

I suspect it might also be related to this, courtesy of the most recent HH Q&A:

In an answer last time, you mentioned that the upcoming Vintage Collection Magnaguard was originally scheduled for another round of now-cancelled Droid Factory packs. Are there any more figures from those cancelled sets that will make their way into the line somehow?

** Excellent question. The answer, right now is "no" but not for lack of wanting to include more of the figures somewhere. Most of them, however, were firmly EU figures (drawn from the comics, for the most part) which does not leave them a lot of options for homes right now. There are some great figures in there, and we will keep looking for ways to bring them out, though. Stay tuned!

So who knows, maybe he was slated for another line and got scrapped, so TCW wound up being the most acceptable home. (not sure how far along with tooling/sculpting they may have gotten, maybe it was an easy switch)

Boo Vos???  :o

Which episode was he in again?

Oh right...NONE OF THEM.  ::)

Nothing against the dude personally, I just hate to see them waste a TCW card slot on a figure who has never even been on the show, when there are so many other worthy candidates out there with multiple appearances.

That's my only beef. Same deal as Kul Teska, but at least he is way more interesting than "Tarzan-Jedi". (imho)

Boo Vos. Yay Cato!

Can we get some non-Zombiefied Geonosians in this line too? Purty please?




Rant over.

Seriously, what is taking so long though? My check was cashed APRIL 9th! APRIL!

I read this with great interest too, but came away totally confused. Didn't EE just put up the pre-listing for Wave 3? What about the Camo ARF Trooper, SA Fisto and Windu, etc?

Seems like that Yakface list would be more like Waves 4, 5 and 6, not 3, 4, 5.

Cannot wait for Shaak Ti, Embo, and Cato. Great choices on those!

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...

Thanks a lot, this is a big help in updating my personal wantlist for the relaunch.
