Per the otheR Site, there are rumors of Biggs Darklighter, Ben Kenobi (old man Ben?), Snowtrooper and Bossk.  Still no Padme.

Now thru November 12th, Mighty Muggs are on sale at KB for $9.99, and if you spend $30, you get a $10 gift card to apply to your next purchase of $30 (at least that's what I think the promotion says).  Galactic Heroes are also $5.99.  Don't know if its worth checking, just thought I'd share this sale I saw....

To my surprise and delight, I found and purchased the new wave at TRU today (Hoth Han, Plo Koon, Grand Moff Tarkin). The new Vader was nowhere to be found.

I stopped into KB hoping they would have something new in conjunction with their sale on MM, but nothing  :P  Though if I needed a C3PO or Ben Kenobi, I'd be all set.  I don't know why the C3PO sits so long.  In the 3 3/4 line C3PO usually isn't all that exciting, but the MM version is really pretty neat looking, to me anyway....

That's weird, the See Threepio Mugg was one of the fastest sellers around here.

I went to a toy show today and was able to pick up Stormtrooper and Jango Fett for less than retail price! ;D

The same vendor was also selling Wave 7 (Darth Maul & Darth Revan).

Haven't seen that these would found by anyone on JD, but I saw that two faced Vader, Darth Revan, Hoth Han and Shirtless Maul this am at a Wal-Mart.  They were in a cart with some other various toys (it was during the time the section is stocked) so I'm thinking they were being restocked.  I really wanted to get them, but didn't have the money to do it, so I had to put them back.  :'(

In particular I wanted the Hoth Han and maybe the Revan.  I've got the first Maul and Vader, so those two are less exciting for me.  No sign of Tarkin or Plo Koon, and there were only those four, no where in the Star Wars section, or Marvel, or Indiana Jones section were there any other of the new MMs.

I got Hoth Han, the new Vader, Plo Koon, and Tarkin the other day. I like the new Vader a lot more than I thought I would. The helmetless head is great, and he's actually a totally different design from the other Vader I have. Plus you can remove his hand like with Bespin Luke. Here are some pictures, including a comparison of the old and new Vaders.

I saw these things today for the first time.  I gotta say, you guys are welcome to them.  I can't help but think in about six months you're going to regret it though.  As a gift, I'd probably keep one but I won't be paying for any.

OK, I caved.  But it was an Indy Mugg and only cost $3, so for a cup of coffee, what the hell.

That's how it starts...

Where'd you get an Indy Mugg for $3 though?

I still only have Vader, 3PO and Chewie, but that Tarkin looks like a must have.

My son got the Spider-man one with his birthday money and I have to admit, they're kind of cool.  He's getting Hulk and Silver Surfer for Christmas and hopefully Vader and Chewie from others (boy makes me proud knowing a lot of these characters. I guess his geeky father has something to do with that).

I haven't seen that new Vader yet, but I really like it after seeing that comparison pic, way more than I thought I would. I guess I'm getting another Vader. :P
