I like most of the figures in this wave.  But is anyone else going to be swayed by the coin itself?  I think it will get me to buy yet another damn R2-D2.

I agree. This is a great wave and it's hard not to not like any of the figures. I know I will pass on R2 and maybe the SBD, but I really want the troopers and the new Mace and Obi-Wan... but the coins look sweet. I liked them way back in the 80s and they are so tempting now.

The assortment will have at least 2x the main characters, and 2x one other figure (not sure which, but I'd say it wouldn't be the Lava Miner and Concept Trooper). Probably will be a Cantina Han repack (j/k). Actually, I'll go with the Galactic Marine!

x2 Obi-Wan
x2 R2
x2 Mace
x1 Airborne
x1 Lava Miner
x1 Super Battle Droid
x2 Galactic Marine
x1 Concept Trooper

Wow, Hasbro really surprised me with this one...

Star Wars 30th Anniversary Figures Wave 1 @ EE:

2x Galactic Marine
2x Utapau Airborne Trooper
2x Obi-Wan Kenobi
2x R2-D2
1x Mustafarian Lava Miner
1x McQuarrie Concept Stormtrooper
1x Mace Windu
1x Super Battle Droid

I thought for sure Mace would be 2x per case, very cool to stick both the Airborne and Marine in there at 2x per case instead.   :)

Not cool to see a bit of a price hike on that pre-order though.  Up to $84 for a case instead of $80.   >:(

Wow...the Mace and SBD look really cool.

EDIT: To Rune below....are you actually surprised and think someone at Hasbro is going to see that and change their mind on this issue or what? I'm curious.

Yeah they did a decent job on that case assortment, at least the clones are 2 per case.  Smart move, they're gonna fly.

And the bright side is that we can look for a solid case of Vaders to clog the shelves just as these hit. ::)

But the Vader's only packed in with the coin album, is it not?  Meaning it should be a shelf item as opposed to a peg item?  That's the impression that I got--that to get the coin album, you have to buy the Vader, too, and vice versa.

Maybe I'm just misreading things (hey, it's early), but I wouldn't think the Vader/coin album would really have any effect on keeping anything else on or off the pegs. . .

I agree with Matt. 

According to the Target folks I know, the 2007 basic figures have a whole separate DPCI number than Coin Album Vader does.  That means they are on completely different order schedules and a surplus of one shouldn't keep the other from being ordered...

Looks like another price increase for next year.  Probably because of the metal coins.

Keep your pack-ins and give us $5 figures.

At $84 a case, that comes out to exactly $7 a figure. So I'm guessing figures will be priced at around $7.30 in stores...  :-\

Ruiner, I doubt the coins will be metal. They were plastic in 85, and I'm sure they will be plastic in 2007.
