Wave 3 predictions

Plo Koon - Clone Wars
Han Solo - Sarclacc Pit (No carbonite block included)
Obi-Wan Kenobi - Kamino Duel..the wet look!
Jango Fett - Gratutious Duel
Clone Captain (AOTC) - vintage clone body
C-3PO - AOTC/ droid head (Arena 2-pack slight repaint)

Super Battle Droid - (arena 2 pack repaint)
Kit Fisto - (vintage with actual smilling head)
Count Dooku - (arena 2 pack reissue)
Chewbacca - Boush's bounty (super articulated...maybe actual visible collar this time like its supposed to be)
Commander Gree - Clone Wars phase 1
Luke Skywalker - Jabba's Palace (deleted scene figure with new head sculpt)

Okay, too cynical...

I'll be surprised if AOTC 3D is released and there's not a Republic gunship reissue at least.

A super Wal-Mart here got in some Imperial ARC-170's...they hadn't had them back when they did winter clearance...where'd they come from? Still marked $64.99...I didn't scan them.

Had a TIE BOMBER, too...$24.

This store never clearanced Episode 1 Dewbacks or Droid fighters, but somehow sold most of them (I guess).

From the original Wedge discussion in the Vintage Wave 3.5 thread...

Denis Lawson = Height: 5'8" (1.73 m)

Mark Hamill = Height: 5'9" (1.75 m)

Yep, short guy.

I've heard that Hamill is shorter than that.

Temuera Morrisson is only 5' 7.25"...a little short to be a lot of stormtroopers.

Funny gobs of Tantive IV rebel fleet troopers have appeared from China sellers recently. You army build these guys for $2 a figure, no guns (assume they have helmets, since the stock photo pictures them)....if only they were vintage RFT's.

A bot like the Crushinator you don't buy all of at once.

Mandos and Maul....getting kinda fanfic...

Karen Traviss's eyes are probably rolling in her head like a slot machine.  ;)

EW.COM has another clip.

Mosep for me, I think. Siince he was also the basis for Marvel's "Jabba the Hut".

Sgt. Doallyn a runner up...couldn't care less about his EU backstory...he was just a distinct Jabba goon that's  unmade (while they made Bane Malar?).

Then Solomohal or whatever his name is...

A black uniformed Imperial officer with good articulation...this somehow has not happened. Don't care which one, any one...

I forget that there's still not a good ESB Lando.  Cut elbows...blech.

I'm surprised there's not more desire for a good "Declaration of Empire" Palpatine...for a safe and secure collection!

But I'm not that big on Palpatine/Sidious.

Vote for the power mask demon.

I have no idea who half the announced characters are. Castle Grayskullman?  :o

Scissorhands guy? Not my pick.

I'll say that the average wave of vintage had more "gotta have it" figures than either of the announced Droid Factory waves.

I see getting Padme and Biker scout if it's actually new...which it don't look like. Maybe the Geonosian if they made a new head.

Wave 2, Mara Jade if she's good...uh...Biggs if he's good (not another Luke body). A-Wing pilot if its the Sullastan (or that old woman...haw!).

20 figures + 4 BADS, the only one on my wishlist is FA-4...

Price also has a lot to do with that. I like BAD's, but I think I completed like 2 during its original run. The rest were franken-droids.

I read that 3 of the 4 announced BAD's are do-overs...i'm cool with making CW droids into realistic ones and an r/c droid a regular toy, but that's a tad disappointing to hear. There's almost no shortage of unmade droids, even repaints, they could do.

Like these two from Clone Wars

Third attempt at a list, thank-you, wookiepedia, for locking up my web browser twice.

1. Yuzzum (Jabba Palace, not Joh Yowza...the original goofy prop one)

2. Sy Snootles (vintage puppet)
3. Sgt. Doallyn
4. AV-6R7
5. Vedain (Yotts is cooler, Vedain has a more important "role")
6. Taym Dren-Garen (ditto)
7. Rebel Crewman (At Home 1 Briefing, brown uniforms, ballcaps w/diamond logos, gear box on belt, etc.)*
8. Geezum
9. Ewok victory drummer with imperial helmet drums (that aren't glued to anything!)
10. Imperial Workers (?) in background of Emperor's Arrival (how vague is that?)

Also, every Ewok in this picture that hasn't been made yet:

*Too lazy to look up my alt choice, the guy who dresses like General Madine, but isn't him.

battle bag with string closure

Will tiny Naboo creatures be inside?

(Few remember those lame Episode 1 offerings.)

None were technically vintage but I got like 20 used, kid owned figures and a senate pod at a yard sale for $3. A few are missing hands/lower arms. Also, an old MASK figure and a dino rider human.

Included the imperial R4 unit and that hoth R5 with the black head. Sweet.

some kind came up after I was about done digging though the mess of toys on the ground and asked if I'd seen an R2-D2 and I gave him the light-up/sounds R2 I had set aside to buy. He'd do more with it than I would. (i have one anyone I got recently). I was just buying every Star Wars figure that wasn't galactic heroes because they were there.

Yard sale finds that good are rare. I passed up two mighty muggs, still in boxes, the other day for $2 each. Tarkin and hoth Han Solo, IIRC.

Hopefully. Wave 1 will be solid "new" figures, though. 

Movie Heroes  or some equivalent has to be returning...there's some AOTC stuff in those BAD  waves, but they'll still milk it more. They'll want a basic phase 1 clone back on pegs, along with Jango Fett, Yoda, super battle droid, destroyer droid, Obi-Wan...

Also, reissued vehicles.

Lot more to reveal for 2013, even if it's not great stuff.
