I live in the UK and ordered mine through R2Dtoys.

I've had all of wave 1 delivered now and waves 2,3 and 4 are on order as well.

Ah that's right Nick, I forgot...  Cool beans on the folder, is it sturdy?

I'm actually really kind of looking forward (and dreading) the coins this year.  The folder really improves my opinion on them as pack-ins though.  Without that they'd be as useless to me as the holographic minis.

Now had those minis been almost like little accessories (mini holo Sidious for Clone wrist com's, little holo Jedi for "communications", little more detailed holo Leia, etc., etc.) I'd have dug them, but they ultimately blow for anything other than a chess set. :(

The folder is the real deal.  It's sturdy and the art work is really nice.

It has a section at the back for an additional 20 coins.

Yeah Hasbro touted that as the slot you can use for the UGH gold coins...  Not that most of us will FIND said UGH gold coins I'd wager, but yeah I guess we can all have empty coin holes to dream of the UGH ones in then? 

At least 6 will get filled for the Vintage figures anyway.  :)

Good to know that the Vader card is removable. For as much as I hate the idea of buying the Vader just for the album, I hate having to buy two to keep one mint even more.

Well, we were doing pretty good up here in Canada by getting Wave 1 before the US, but there's been no sign of the Vader coin holder yet.  No worries though, I'm sure they will be plentiful soon enough.

I picked one up this afternoon after seeing it in person. After much consideration, i've decided to collect the coins. The funny part is I don't really care for the figures, just the coins. :P

I'm sure you won't have a hard time selling off the figures.  :)

Oh, Im totally gettin these coins, with this neat album and all!

This year, my gameplan is concept figs, comic packs, coins of ebay in album, and only absolutely cool figures. When I say absolutely cool figures I mean There are only 3 in the first wave (lava miner, galactic marine, airborne trooper)

Super Battle Droid.



In fact, just 2 days ago you implied you were getting it.



I was pretty happy with that Super Battle Droid sculpt when it was first introduced in the Yoda/SBD 2 pack.  But as you can see courtesy of this pic from Rebelscum.com, the SBD you speak of needs to have it's mold melted down and tossed away for good:


Well thanks for that, you make me feel so good about spending that $7.50+ on it...  :P

I'm not opening it, duh, I wouldn't after TAC Wave 1 being out with that SA one. Im keeping it in the package, it was hard to find!

I saw a bunch of these on shelves the other day and debated picking one up but I decided to pass for now. If I get one then I know I'll have to track down all the coins just to get a complete set. And I don't really want that Vader figure either. I know I could always sell it or something but would anyone be willing to buy it again? :P Oh well, I'll probably break and end up buying it the next time I see it.

I passed on it because they will be everywhere for awhile.  I would rather spend the mula on the actual figures.  Luckily I found a few today and opted to buy those instead.  It's a cool product IMO.  Even the Vader looked nice with the coin.
