I got these all yesterday except for the tatoo anakin, none of him around. I love the little Hammer head figure, very adorable. I am impressed with the Durge figure, bigger than i was expecting.

Just curious if anyone else has seen on Rebelscum, they listed these as some new Heroes that will come out:

Wave 14 - Return of the Jedi
__ AT-AT Driver & AT-AT Commander
__ Garindan & Duros
__ Han Solo & Logray
__ Imperial Officer & Death Star Trooper

Does anyone know where we can see pictures of these?

No pictures exist yet.  The 411/rumor report that popped up at RS is all we have heard about these so far...

Looks like the next four sets are hitting now, according to an RS report.  Considering they're all OT, I'm looking forward to adding them into the mix...

Vader/Jedi Luke
Royal Guard/Impy Gunner
Boushh/Carbonite Han
Walrus Man/Snaggletooth

Saw a case of the newest wave at Wal-Mart this morning on the way to work.  They'd just been stocked, so I'm not sure of what was fresh from the case and what had been sitting (in terms of older waves), but the Vader/Luke and Leia/Han sets were too cute for me to pass up.  I don't normally collect this line, but again, the Leia might be the cutest figure that's been done in this line period.  ;D

Wave 1, including the snowtrooper, and parts of wave 2 are at hasbrotoyshop.com right now.   Not the Durge/Maul sets, but the other stuff is.  Coupon code that works is CATCOM10

Brent - thanks for the code!

Keeping my eye out for the new wave on the site and will let members here know when there up.  No motivation to look for these.

I got the new wave today. My only complaint is that Han doesnt fit in the carbonite block. Other than that they are great.

Tatoo Anakin next and then i will be caught up.

It looks like we can officially add 2007 Wave 4 thanks to this listing at Entertainment Earth:

AT-AT Driver & General Veers
Garindan & Duros
Han Solo & Logray
Imperial Officer & Death Squad Trooper


No pictures yet though.

I just about ordered the Obi-Wan/Durge pack, because I keep missing that one, but I couldn't bring myself to pay shipping on one set - or buying other stuff I don't necessarily need to feel better about it :P.  I've seen the other packs from this wave, although somewhat scarce, but this one has always been gone.  Oh well, I'll wait it out and hope it shows up locally - I notice it is out of stock at HTS now, so we'll see.

Yeah, what's up with the missing Obi/Durge sets?  I'm seeing that here, too, and they sold through REALLY quick on hasbrotoyshop for a GH set.  Is it packed fewer to a case or something?  Is this one of those retarded deals where they'll soon be overpacked in a make-up assortment, at which time the pegs will be clogged not only with all the newly shipped sets, but also with all the returned sets scalpers had been hording in case there wasn't a correcting assortment?  Does anyone know if Obi/Durge is also shipping in the RoJ cases?

The Obi-Wan & Durge 2-pack is set to ship again in the Wave 3, Revision 1 case, but it is still only 1x per case.

Big Bad Toy Store has pics of the new 2 packs, including the AT-At Driver/Veers.  AWESOME.   :)
