Do they at least come with Holo figures?


I wonder the same thing - do these come with the holos?



Yeah they are still there. They need something worthless in there so they can still claim that the $7 pricepoint is justified. ::)

Yes.

3.75" RotS Hits Figures:  087-06-1675

Good, fodder for telling people that UGH ain't over. You know how they are, this new wave is shipping, so people are crying and panicking that it's a sign that they'll never see UGH on the pegs again. ::)

More money for me to save for other SW items is the way I view most of these repacks.

Sith Eyes Variant of the Evo Anakin...  How smoothly would that figure flow out the door, honestly?  I'd go nuts if they made that actually.  :( 

I'm disappointed we don't see more SA sculpts put out in circulation when they exist.  They put out Obi's, so put out ANakin's too.

Hell put out Obi and Ani's SA figures with "burns" on their outfits and smudges and stuff for a Mustafar variant of both.  WOuld you not rebuy those figures just for that?  I would...  I'd love that.  :-\  I'd buy that Evolution Anakin 2 more times just like that then.  One Mustafar variant, and one clean for JTA Anakin...

Of course, the fear I'd have then is that they wouldn't get good distribution and they'd be a pain to find.  Very possible outcome with this being a wholely separate line and all.

I'm in on some of the Clones, even the Commander (they sold well here till the green one saturated the market completely).  If you're re-releasing a COmmander though at all, why not the correct paint Bly?  That's a bitch to find.

To simplify the arguement at a glance from someone who hasn't even been keeping up with this subject...

This line of thought/production is like a TV Show, they're making new figures and then breaking for a long time for "reruns" from last year. The difference is that there's no excuse for this but sheer cheapness.

;)

I mean, sure, I'm glad they're rereleasing a few things that people actually liked and wanted more of and didn't suck... clones, Pilot Gear Obi Wan (but then again, why? Why don't they just repack the Coruscant wave one more instead of printing his stupid plastic cape?? So on second thought that repack sucks), Kit Fisto, Dooku... but they're rereleasing a ton of action-feature laden figures no one liked much the first time, some of which were just reprinted with minor improvements- now being reprinted without the improvements. Why?

The more one thinks about it, the worse the idea gets, really :/

Found two cases today at Walmart.  Picked up the 3 Clones.  The cardbacks make it tough not to buy for me.  The figs look so much better with the SAGA2 card design.

I'll give a big hug to anyone that can find me a Darth Vader with Vader holo (plus cost and shipping too ;)).


I am confused, how is the numbering on the inserts of the HV wave figures going to work after the first 12?

Yeah, me too.  Since the first wave is actually numbered x of 12, will they simply reship figures from that wave on the same cards and add a few more "numbers" to the total?  Makes you wonder if Hasbro even decided to do wave 2 before they designed the cards for wave 1.

So, I was out at one of the local Targets tonight and it was jam packed full of the first wave of these figures.

$6.64 plus tax, which is a bit cheaper than the $6.99 that TRU has been charging around here...

They left only one peg with the regular basic figure DPCI # (087-06-0576) label and that peg was full of the pegwarmers (Bib, Boushh, Gummi-Adi-Mundi).  The other 7 basic figure pegs were all relabeled with this Ep3 Hits wave DPCI # (087-06-1675) label.

Just curious if the clone pilot is available in both colors or just the black one?  I got my case today and it had the black one.  Anybody seen the grey one or was that just a mistake of early artwork on websites?  Thanks

Got notification that my case is shipping from NF. This first wave was perfect in that it's 12 of 12. I'm dreading the other two waves where I'll actually have to go to the store to get a full set without getting extra's.

I saw these (well, actually one) for the first time in town last Friday at TRU.  They had one hanging on the peg - a Chewie - and I decidd to pick it up.  The cardbacks are pretty spiffy, and I usually try to pick up extra Hans or Chewies to leave carded.  I haven't seen any others yet though, at any store in town.

why when i went to Target on friday I saw some of these again but they scanned at $6.99 while the other waves they had on the pegs were $5.89?  There was even 2 different peg tags where they were hanging.  Anybody else seeing this?  Are we being set up for another price hike?
