My question is why the hell do we need these? These are just old peg warming ep3 figures in new packaging. I see them taking up valuable peg space from the R5-D4 wave! I NEEED MY R5-D4 not another Anakin!

That takes it I've been to 2 different Targets both doing the same thing w/the different pricing of $6.99 & $5.89.  AMEN Phruby.

Like I said the other day, here in MN the stores that have the E3 H&V Collection have them priced at the same price as the normal basic figures - $6.64 each.

Most of the Targets around here abandoned the $5.89 price back in April and have been at $6.64 for a while now.   :-\

Are these random packins or chases?

I've been to three different TRUs in three counties and saw only 1 figure in each store.

A Chewie, A Mace, and a Yoda.

1 per case.  My local TRU is actually stocking these and I found two entire sets on two visits this past week.  Don't worry.  They're starting to hit Targets though the clones should be harder to come by of course.

Anybody feel like throwing up while entering a TRU?  Mine is done in all yellow (for summer perhaps) but it looks absoulutely putrid.

So far these have not been warming the pegs at all in my area.

I'll definitely have to hit there now and then now, being so close to work!!

Thanks, Jay  ::) ;) ;D

Well, I got my case of wave 1 in the mail yesterday (from New Force).

They look nice on the Saga 2006 card and all, but I still can't help feeling like I really didn't need them. 

Paying $6.75 for a figure I bought last year for $4-5 seems more and more lame everytime I think about it....  especially for the figures like the Anakin who I've already bought twice this year (Saga #25 and UGH).

I guess I'll try not to think about it.  :-\

That Anakin is different though the HV version includes Dooku's saber instead of the soft goods cloak  :P

Why oh why oh why didn't they at lest paint the Clone Trooper w/ Gray pauldrons and trimming?  I'd have at least bought those.  The rest of the stuff can continue to doom SW to an early retail grave along with the Mini Unleashed and Transformers and Motorcycles

I agree Scott. That is one of my favorite decos from EIII and Hasblo **** teases us by putting the SA Trooper on a Coruscant Clone cardback  :(

I picked up the clone trooper last Saturday. I want to pick up some more of those, along with some more Clone Pilots and Destroyer Droids. For the rest, I'll order a case from EE, along with cases from the other two waves.

I got my case from NF today. Since I stow my carded figures in the figure cases, I'm probably not even going to open it.

Well, I was originally going to boycott this line, but now I will be picking up a few white clones for only customizing. I'll try to stick to that.  :P
