"Do that for ten years and tell me where you have room to put it all. "

Actually, Darth Anton,  I've been doing it since 1995!  And from 1977-1985 before that. 

Same here my friend. :)

I have room for evertyhing in my attic,

I forgot about attics. And basements. We don't have them here in SoCal. :(

Since this is Darth Vader and not Anakin anymore will we get some Sith eye on him?  I know we have "that other one" but really except for no ball jointed elbows this is the best ROTS sculpt of him and it would be great to have him with the Sith eyes.

Y'know, on paper 60 new figs a year sounds like a ton, however when you think that each wave is about 6 figures, that's equal to about 10 waves a year.  10 waves a year, comes out to about a new wave every 5 weeks.  6 figures every 5 weeks, just doesn't seem like too much for me.  Once I complete a wave, it seems like it's 3-4 weeks before anything new shows up, and I'm already jonesing for more!

WORD!
Finally someone I can relate to! This crap is like crack: I NEED MY FIX!!!!!!!!!!

I wish they made 80 so we have a new wave every month.

This wave is cool but I would have liked this Obi Wan with burnt clothing/dirt damage. Hopefully production will have that. Sith Eyes are a must!

There are a lot of figures overdue for update.

Old Ben can use a proper one but what about:
Nien Numb
Ponda Baba
Dr. Evezian
Luke xwing Hoth
Leia Hoth
Yakface
Gammorian Guard
Weequay
Uncle Owen

They need some serious updates.........

We have in the form of the VOTC Obi. Like it or not, that's the update at least for now.

StarWarsShop.com is listing Obi-Wan & Vader as coming on Lava Platforms, so does that mean the Lava Droid doesn't come with anything, and the platform in the pic is the one that comes with them?

Somehow I doubt it. Doesn't make sense from a price point stance.

Maybe the platform is split up among the three figures? 

Obi and Ani each with half the platform and then the Lava Droid with the red lava portion... or something like that?

That's my thinking, Jeff. Only way to get people interested in buying figures that are basically being rereleased.

Very awesome, I am surprised to see them all ready like that so soon. Anyone have any guess on the 3 coming soon blacked out figures.

EDIT------

I am thinking the hidden figures are the Force Unleashed figures.
