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

Just wait until they change the card backs on the re-re-repacked figures like Obi-Wan. :P

I hope these re-re-repacks do not have new cardbacks... This is just getting crazy!

Thanks for the clone pilot info.

As for the other 2 waves...there are 9 new figs in wave 2 and 5 new figs in wave 3.  I'm guessing they'll be done after that b/c that will be 13 heroes and 13 villains.  Anyway, instead of ordering cases and ending up with doubles, I just preorder the wave (new figures only) from either KandC or Brians.   That way i don't have to worry about it either.

Apparently, we're in for a name change...

Episode III Greatest Battles

So, the H&V wave 2 and 3 assortments will be combined to show "X of 14" in the "Greatest Battles" assortment. 

I'm not sure how 3PO on the Tantive was one of the "greatest battles" of ROTS... nor am I quite sure why he still has a mustafar base since it looks so out of place on the Tantive IV card.   :-\

Those Saga cards sure do look pretty though...

Well, if they're gonna do repacks at least now we're looking at better figure choices for the most part here.

I am fine with the bases, but would prefer to see something that interconnects.

OK, since the Greatest Hits of RotS repack Wave 2 and 3  are now being called "Greatest Battles", I pulled them out of the other thread...  ;)

Cant they make the rehashes more appealling?
While there are some really nice additions to the line in 2006, I have to say I feel la bit let down. So many repacks, less articulation and a higher price (I understand inflation). I hope 2007's 30th Annv will make up for this years mixed bag.


As far as the regurgitated Sith figs repaint some of them to make them different like the Wookie, R4, use the SA body for the 501st.

I really feel sorry for the carder collector, I am glad I am not one of them to the extent of needing to get every variation...............

On another note I am glad to see Kit Fisto Back, his body is great for custom Jedi.

I feel sorry for carded collectors as well, as many of these figures do look pretty nice on the 2006 cardbacks.  I especially like the 3PO on Tantive, I might even pick that one up if I see it.  It would look better if that Mustafar base was better hidden (or not included).  Some of the Heroes and Villains stuff is starting to stack up around here to some extent though, and I hope Hasbro isn't overdoing it with these.  If they come out with 3 (or more) assortments of this, they're basically re-releasing half of last year's line when you consider what's already in the regular TSC waves.  Its nice that some of the tougher figs are out there again, and - like I said - the cardbacks look nice, but I just have nightmares of not finding Tatooine/Endor figures while staring at pegs of Yodas, Anakins, etc.  They may be a seperate item in systems, but around here they're all put on the same pegs.  Particularly at Wal-Mart - whose basic figures section for SW is almost hidden amongst the rest of the aisle.  Anyways, I might pick up a few of these, but I just hope they don't overdo it.  It would have been nice to see Evolutions Anakin packed in these though, if they're going to do them.

Well, I'm gonna try to pass on these. But that Tac Ops trooper is becoming very hard to resist.

Great, now I'm stuck with MORE of those bases that come with the Guard and the 501st Trooper.

It'd be nice if they combined these into one case of 14 as well.

Don't feel too sorry. Some of us carded collectors don't feel a need to pay extra money for figures that were released a year ago with a different card.
I remember my dream now.
