I saw something yesterday somewhere that said today's the official street date for the first of the booster packs, or whatever they are. I still have no real idea how this stuff works...
Remind me where the hell they're gonna sell these? Gaming stores? Regular retail? What? I'm a little out of the loop still, and need to catch up and get a game plan in order here, real quick!
I have been farting around with putting together a checklist of all the figures that have been shown so far, most/all of which I got to see down at SDCC. So here's what I've got so far. Just want to put it into the sequential order or the movies, or something more fun like that...Figures out now
Tusken Raider - Comic Shop Promo?
Mon Calamari Mercenary - Origins
Stormtrooper (holding rifle) - SDCC
Wookiee Warrior - Gen ConUpcoming

That's 57 total figures right there that I know of, but they've been advertising the first round as 60
total. So I'm not sure if that means there's some kind of secret chase figure available in each of the 3 booster sets, or what.
EDIT: Looks like we need to add in the Leia and Scouttrooper on Speeder Bikes, as well as Greedo. Looks like a 6th Stormtrooper has replaced the standing Mara Jade as well. Weird...
So, who's in on this line? Here the official WOTC link
for them. Need to get a trading network going for these little suckers it sounds like! Chime in if you're interested!
