I'm kind of scratching my head at these announcements as well, there's still lots of Sandtroopers and Bossk's sitting around town here.

Too bad because I'd like to pick up that snowtrooper.

More than that Jeff...There was an R2D2 exactly like the 2007 basic line one as a Titanium shown at the CC as well.

Thanks DS, I forgot about R2... I guess that's 11 figures yet-to-come then. 

I didn't notice that Wave 5 (Luke/Maul/Clone) was delayed until Jun-07, so thanks for mentioning that too.  I guess maybe they are taking a break for now and maybe planning on re-launching the line next summer in new 30th Anniv. packaging?

All I can say is frustrating, Jeff, for fans of the line like me >:(.

I never did pick any of these up, but I'd be disappointed if the line gets canceled prior to the BSG Cylon being released. That's the only figure I had any intentions of buying.

I can't believe that they keep shilling these too...  I don't know about you guys, but where they are stocked they don't sell well...  KM's and WM's have the odd Titanium from any wave still lingering.  Only IG-88 and the Clone moved, but that could've been the limited (seemingly) availability on those two and IG's desireability overall...

$15 figures that don't move at all, really sucks...  Hell I bitch about $10 SA figures. :)

Phew, I finally got the IG88 droid in a trade with a local scalper. I have everything so far except GG, unfortunately, I was going to order him via his reissue in the 2 pack set with Jango..but, as Jeff mentioned, EE canceled that sale.

Saw the same markdown here in Chicago tonight.  Only saw one figure though.

They were on clearance at my local Target, but failed to check the price. All they had were Bossk's.

From Hasbro:





the snowtrooper is actually somewhat exciting to me. i like it. but we dont need another Vader and itll probably be the shelfwarmer for a while, alongside bossk.

I ended up getting the target exclusive vader from my daughter for christmas. She also got me the unleased wookie set for my birthday last year. Those will be the only examples of those lines in my collection.

I like the look of that snowtrooper too, but '07 is going to see a lot more scrutiny from me when I plunk my money down. $15.00 metal figures that don't fit in with the rest of the collection are going to be on the outside lookin in.

The Targets here in minnesota still have sandtrooper and bossk, both paint versions, at $8.48. I found a 501st clone at walmart this morning for 11.00 plus tax.

Surprisingly (for Wal-Mart, not for the line itself), Wal-Mart moved the Titanium SW figures to the clearance aisle over the weekend.  They're only 11 bucks (compared to the 2 $4.00 Bossks at Target), but it looks like WM is giving up on the line as well.

I'm really baffled as to how and why Hasbro continues to announce one figure after another in this line when two of the big three retailers are apparently not supporting it, Entertainment Earth cancels the first case assortment of the new year, and sightings of the last two waves (Clone/IG-88 and Grievous/3P0) have been less frequent than credible UFO sightings.  Are they planning on making this a HTS.com direct sales line, is some other retailer/etailer going to be carrying these as exclusive items, or what?
