Wow! Scary fast, the waves are coming...

I've yet to see all of Wave 5 at retail (only 4 of the 9)... seen everything else so far (not too sure about legends with all the variants).

Isn't this wave 8?

Maybe?  Depends on the way you want to look at it:

The way they were originally annnounced...
2007 Wave 7 - RotJ
2007 Wave 8 - Repaints
2007 Wave 9 - AotC

or

The way that retailers labeled them...
2007 Wave 7 - RotJ
2007 Wave 7.5 - Repaints
2007 Wave 8 - AotC

or

The way they are showing up in stores...
2007 Wave 7 - RotJ
2007 Wave 8 - AotC
2007 Wave 9 - Repaints

Take your pick!

I'm sticking with "Wave 9" based on my refusal to call a wave x.5 and the numbering of the figures in the wave.  ;)


I picked this wave up tonight at WM. The case calls it WAVE 8 = that's what I'm calling the wave. My money's on the repaint wave being called wave 9 on the case.  I love the wolf Jedi- he's awesome!!!

No. That would have required a Herculean effort and resulted in delay.

A few people sent me PMs and e-mails pointing out the same, that the case for the AotC wave says "Wave 8" on it. 

A few folks also sent e-mails and PMs pointing out that Hasbro calls the repaints "Wave 7.5" in the Q&A sessions, so I guess we can consider that the "official" wave number for the repaints. 

Reminds me of how Hasbro called the 2006 Geonosis wave "Wave 2.5" on the cases instead of Wave 3 and it screwed up all the case/wave numbering last year... ::) ;)

Yeah, they're kind of special like that ;).
At least there's some cool,  well done figs in this wave.

Awesome pickup... I'm really looking forward to this wave.

I'm assuming I won't be seeing these in my area for quite a while... so if you have time later, do you mind snapping a few pics?

Not sure if anyone caught the note over at Newforce that they have Cases of 7,8 and 9 in route from Hasbro :)

Jesus H. Christ, can they slow down for a few minutes with this stuff?  I started getting a little worried when they were already showing 2008's Wave 1 a couple of weeks back, but we've now gotten waves 4, 5, 6, 7, and 8 since the beginning of September in most places.  That's about 31 figures in a little over 60 days in a non-movie year contending with a second assortment that despite Hasbro's claims to the contrary is clogging the pegs and keeping the regular assortment from being stocked, plus the continuing glut in many stores of last year's Saga Collection figures that stores refuse to blow out. 

As excited as I am for these figures, I'm getting a little burned out, especially when 95% of my visits to retailers result in absolutely none of the new stuff but more wasted gas.  Jeez, the 25th anniversary Joes haven't been this daunting. 

I know, I know, wet blanket, whine whine whine, bitch bitch bitch...it'd just be nice to actually find some of these new figures for a change.   :-\

Holy **** ... Wave 7 is barely out and now we're up to 9 already. I know people always bitch when there is too large of a gap between waves, but this is a little insane.

Just think of it as one giant, triple sized wave.   :)

Midnight Madness without the ability to walk into a store and find it...

I see nothing positive in the above.  :-\

At least it happened at the end of the year this year. :P

I know, I cannot wait for the Christmas morning feel of getting that many new figures in one shot! I ordered the Battlefront packs from them too, so it adds to my pile. I am so sick of store runs and coming up empty handed. At least the online stores are not disappointing. I wish NFC had W1/08 up for pre-order and that was shipping as well. ;D

While some may complain about the overload let's remember the first 6 months of this year. We were stuck with nothing but Saga2 and not as much money was spent during that time period. Personally, I would rather be overloaded than underwhelmed with figures. Think of it as making up for lost time.
