The kill markings for Wedge's X-Wing is likely in homage to the Rogue Squadron comic books which showed the markings on the hull. They look similar to this set of markings I made years ago and hosted by Erik.

And yes, I want my Tantive IV just like that. I bought a chunk of land near my house specifically for it. I expect it will come with the only release of a new Fleet Trooper, making army building impossible. And he'll have a massive mullet sculpted on him which will blow.
Hasbro said a "mix" too... Not a single-theme wave of EU figures like Wave 2 Legacy was... Anyone else a bit geeked at the possibilities?
I'd love a new Kyle Katarn, but I can't say I'm hopeful. Katarn really is a bitchin' character though and can be armed to the teeth with accessories. SA Kyle would make my top 10 list for sure.
...and this is a 3rd Generation Vader. Note the kick ass sword.
One of my long sought after grails arrived in the mail yesterday, a Canadian Regal Jawa.
Tho not complete, he's missing his bandolier, pouch & tag. When you press on his left hand, he squeaks.
Everyone of course suggested that they have CV at the same location as WW Chicago - the Rosemont Convention Center as suggested by BrentS. The venue is certainly large enough to handle hosting CV and there are many hotels nearby - several are "connected" to the con center - and of course O'Hare Airport is just a couple miles away. Also there's a mass transit train station in walking distance which would help people out who want to visit Downtown Chicago or other tourist locations. Being in the midwest I would think works out perfectly for the majority, unlike LA last year. So yeah my vote's for Rosemont, because it fits just nicely for their needs, plus it's like 10 miles from my house.
I will get the S Trooper and grey Coruscant trooper. That is all I care to get from this wave. I may go for the "engineer". Maybe. I do like the silver RA-7 but not enough to buy each figure in the wave to get it.
