Rumor has it Wave 6 has already popped up at Target... ;)

Cool, but relentless.

Was it Target or Walmart? RS says one and YF says the other (with a quick look by me anyway).

Bought a NYCC exclusive Jesus online yesterday. Had to have him.

On a side note I'm pretty upset with you McMetal. Can't believe you didn't mention this figure existed in this thread. I'm incapable of going elsewhere online to find anything out.  ;)

Here's some scoop: McF announced Abraham is coming in the next comic wave...they also teased a silhouette image of the other figures in the wave, looked like Carl and and not sure who else. Believe this was all via Facebook.

Just got my shipping notice for "Hong Kong Brawl" Gypsy Danger 2.0. Apparently his casemate Tacit Ronin is still on pre-order. Still haven't seen any new stuff in actual brick and mortar stores...

Starting a separate thread for these...

The Darth Vader kit has been released in Japan.  Gunjap has a great photoreview of what comes in the kit for those that are curious to see.

The Stormtrooper kit should be out in December.

This is pretty cool. Not $30 cool, but still cool.
Star Wars Rebels / Re: Star Wars: Rebels - Class II Vehicles

I opened all of the vehicles last night with the kids.  My quick thoughts (caveat that I haven't opened that many toys so my frame of reference might be off).

Phantom - The kids and I really like this.  I think this is the best of the bunch.  Flexible play options and it seems well built.  It looks like it has been designed to attach to a future Ghost ship.

TIE - I think this is really good as well.  My only complaint is that the hatch is too hard to open.  I'm going to have to file down the plastic to make it easier to open.  My kids can't open it on their own, and I struggle to get it open.  Not sure if they are all like this or not.

AT-DP - It stands great and looks great.  However trying to move the legs is a complete disaster.  Within ten minutes of opening and constructing this the legs popped off about five times and I had to instruct the kids not to move the legs more than a few degrees at a time.  How this got through the design process is beyond me.  The cockpit with double opening hatch is pretty cool though.

Overall I would have to say they're okay, but not great, although I think the Phantom is really solid. 

I don't think the plastic is so thin and hollow that its going to break or cause quality issues, so that's not an issue for me.

I was really annoyed with the stickers included with these though.  While the Phantom's were reasonably easy to apply, the others were terrible.  They were so small you couldn't even grab them.  I don't know how anyone without model building skills could apply these (had to get out my Exacto knife to put them on like decals), and really seem unnecessary.  Does Hasbro feel they *must* include stickers with every ship?  They were so small and meaningless, and frustrating.

While I've got my gripes, I'm very glad they created new ships and its not just repainted Jedi Starships and the usual crap we've received over the past few years.  The $25 price point isn't great for the ships alone, but its also not terrible.  I actually think its a decent deal if you get the Target versions with the pack-in figures.

I got these from HTS.  Mostly because I wanted to bundle them with the 6" TBS Anakin and AOTC Clone Trooper and get free shipping.

Actually, I'm a little surprised and disappointed that Hasbro used the B-A-F droid parts for R5-G-19.  The R5-D4 mold was fine, and I would've been happy with that.  The BAF seems like a copout with those extra holes in the droid body.

Been a little out of contact due to traveling in Ireland but all amazing pieces! Found a shop in Dublin with some vintage palitoy I'll need to dig into before I head home.
