I popped my Luke apart to fix the problem, looks much better. Good call on that, that bothered me how it sat too high on his waist.

Variation hunters beware, I found some wave 1 figures today that had the "blue eye" Stormtrooper cards.



Sorry for the bad quality, I had to snap the pic with my camera phone, but there were some Ewoks, a Bane, and a Vader behind the Luke and Han pictured that also had the blue eyed cardbacks.

So glad this is my last year of collecting carded - gave up on variants the end of last year so this is an obvious pass.

Even though it's not "movie accurate", I wish these would have hit retail first as I really like the look. Sure makes them "pop" more on the pegs.

I'm with iFett, so glad I don't think about that stuff anymore.

Noticed another card change. I just acquired an Ak-Rev figure today and the bottom portion on the back of the card has changed. It now has robotic arms that are holding the "Droid Factory" logo and another one next to the row of figures.

Anyone else notice this?


This is a non-FDOI, non-blue lens card

And yet, some out there are going to get every card variant.

I don't know what the situation is in your neck of the woods, guys, but around here, the entire ROTJ wave is nowhere to be found.  That includes the fat lady (Yarna).

Picked up the Chewbacca from this wave a few days ago. It was an essential purchase for me, as I didn't have a movie Chewie in my collection. Pretty nice figure, the "sandstorm" headsculpt would work well for a future Hoth Chewbacca.

Pretty much both Legacy waves 1 & 2 are scarce in my area. That stinks, as I still want a Bane, and half the figures from wave 2.

Wave one is not impossible to get around here. To get the Greatest Hits figure, you have to stay on top of hitting stores regularly, but I would guess that if one would hit all the stores in my area, Target, WM, TRU, KB, that one would find all of wave one.
