Yes, thanks for the tip!  I bought all of them except for the 3PO/Chewie set.  With my recent find of the Geonosis 10 pack, I'm all caught up with these little buggers.

He looks great!  Gotta have it!

I love this line, but with no end in sight, I may begin to focus on OT and pass on the CW ones.  Maybe.

Its great to see some pics of some of the new GH on the way.  I'm really glad they are putting out a Hammerhead, he was always my favorite of the "background" aliens.  The Clone Wars ones are pretty nice too.  I always went into these planning to only collect the Original Trilogy ones, but drifted off a little bit and have a few of the ROTS offerings as well (and the Obi-Wan/Maul 2 pack).  I'll probably pick up these Clone Wars ones, but I might try to focus back on just the OT ones.  It seems like Hasbro might finally realize how popular this line is, so we might have quite a few on the way - and space is at a premium :).

That's the great thing about these little buggers - you can fit a lot of them on a shelf!

But seriously, I'll keep supporting this line as long as the Big H continues to invest in it with new tooling and the occassional repaint.  From the looks of things, I'm very happy with their tooing investment.  The last few waves have been great.

I just like the look of em, they've got that cool Anime/SD look to them. I managed to snag the Wedge/TIE pilot set the other day, and now i'm kicking myself for passing on the X-Wing vehicle when i saw it last year :-[


Now if they do an R5 like they did R2, I'd have Wedge and his droid, (Mynock or Gate, depending on which book you read ;D)

Anyone know if more vehicles are in the pipeline for these guys? They did the X-Wing, Falcon, speederbikes, the Naboo Fighter, tauntauns, that Xwing racer thing and the landspeeder, but did they do any Imperial vehicles? Am i nuts thinking that a shuttle for these guys would be both awesome and insane? ;D Or even a CW "Space Whale" gunship, complete with ARCs

No vehicles planned, but I could see them re-release some of the ones you mentioned as the prices continue to climb on the secondary market. 

The new 10 packs are nice too, despite the fact that 95% of them are repacks.

Great value too - 10 figs for $20.

Nioe to see the Maul and Sith Speeder Rumors pan out as well.



I like the little speeder, I hope they keep trying to work more of them into the line somehow...

You know the new 10 packs would have been a great opportunity for Hasbro to re-release some of the older sets/beasts a lot of us are missing. 

A Hoth set would've been neat:

Wampa
TaunTaun
Luke Hoth
Han Hoth
Rebel Trooper
Snow Trooper
Chewie (with snow)
Vader (with snow)

For those that missed out like me on all four sets from the latest wave.  Click here.  Then go to the proceeding pages for all of the latest wave that is "in stock" now.

OK, we bought my son some galactic heroes last year 'cause we thought they were cute and this year he wants more. We have been getting him different things, but on some auction sites they have an x-wing and millennium falcon. Are these new or are people selling stuff they bought before? My hubbie and I have been looking at all the stores and haven't seen any vehicles at all. We found and bought all the cinema scenes which I had also seen on those sites, but no vehicles. Sorry if it's a stupid question, but I'm not a collector (yet), just trying to get my son a Christmas present. Thanks for anyone who can give me an answer!

Oh, yeah. We've checked Walmart, Target, Toys r Us, and Shopko... Are there any other places we should check? We're in Oregon. Any info would help!

There are not any ships available at retail currently. They must be re-sells. They have been a fairly popular aftermarket item- if I remember right retail on the x wing was 20 and falcon was 30, but they fetch more than that now. They will most likely be re-released in 07 due to the lines success, but that won't help with the christmas shopping. Good luck!

The vehicles came out early in the line when i believe they were still under the Playskool brand. Chances are you won't find them in stores anymore. They did release a smaller EU vehicle with a X-wing Luke. I saw that recently at a KB toys.

Hope that helps.  ;D
