These probably will not hit until mid to late January.  We've still got three waves worth of 30AC that have not shipped at all, and a good deal of wave 5 and 6 yet to hit most stores.  And you can bet on mid to late January because of the post holiday doldrums and subsequent inventory process.

Man, those wider bubbles sure look empty without the coins.... still, I like what I'm seeing in this wave, especially the panning droid - I love the fact that we finally get the platform.  Guess that makes up for the lack of things with the rest of the wave.

And, I can't tell from the pic, but I REALLY hope that Darth Vader there has the yellowy "sith eyes" since that is one repaint I'd still like to see again on an Anakin/Vader.

Because kids like Anakin/Vader and Obi-Wan Kenobi.  End of story.

I hate to break it to you, but there will probably be more Darth Vaders, Luke Skywalkers, and Han Solos next year too...  :P

Yes, I agree - they could have at least packed the stand in that space.  Nothing looks worse on the shelf than an empty bubble.  We were definitely spoiled this year with the coins and inordinate pack-ins.

I hope the prices get bumped back down a buck or two, but I doubt it'll happen....I'm just sick of overpaying for pack-ins that I could care less about..

Isn't that a stand at the bottom of the bubble?  I thought I read somewhere that the stands would be coming back after the coins.

Yep, I think Ruiner meant that they should have packed the stand in the coin's former location.  ;)

The Darth Vader in this wave. . .

I just want to go on record as saying that this annoys me.  The whole "Anakin/Darth Vader" thing.  Yes, I know that in the film he's "Darth Vader," and even the toys are "Darth Vaders," but, to me, the suit = Darth Vader.  He's still Anakin up until he gets put in the suit.

It's much easier that way, Papa Lucas be damned.  This whole "he's actually 'Darth Vader' before the suit" deal has unnecessarily and annoyingly complicated things.

True, but I don't mind it as much. Though, I think if they're are going to go the route of making any pre-armor designated Vaders, then they should have the "Sith Eyes" to differentiate.

Matt's right on this one.

Darth Vader = armor.

And heavy breathing.

the picture of Gree in that photo looks like he has balljointed hips. This is starting to make me wonder if they have an all new clone trooper sculpt.

I dunno, 1 second he's Anakin, then he gets duped into carving up Mace, next second he's Darth Vader.



No glowey eyes, just a new name.  I kinda like that there's a transition period between going to the dark side, taking a name in the Darth series, and then getting jacked by Obi Wan and having to wear the suit.

Then there is the glowy eyes when carving up the separatists on Mustafar.

I say

Sith Eyes or Armor figure = Vader figure

No Sith Eyes / No Armor figure = Anakin figure
