I'm still waiting but got my order in later than Dressel did, so I'm curious to see if I get mine soon.  I got my comic packs and E1 stuff over the weekend so I am wagering my ROTJ figs are on the way too, soon.

They're listed as "in stock" now, it shouldn't be long.

I went ahead and placed an order for them... Slave Leia was out of stock when I did, but I just got a shipping notice for the other 7 figures.

I skipped Leia altogether, I think the facial likeness sucks.

I'm defininitely am picking up 2 Leia's for that exact reason, Rob.  I have 2 Luke Dagobah's for that, actually, and even want to try my hand at a SA one at some point.

But Leia's a must x2 for the reclining pose, and the "action figure".  She's more an accessory for Jabba with the posed legs though.

Stumbled across the remnants of a Wave 9.5 (wave 9, rev 1) case tonight at Target and lucked into the new Ugnaught variant.  :)

Hasbro may have dropped the ball on the Hoth Rebel variant, but at least they managed to get us the variant piggy, complete with the same toolkit/console accessories the first version had.

That's a nice bonus... I didn't realize it was going to be out this soon.

Yeah, that's news. Now the question is, do I go on the hunt for just one figure?

That IS awesome news about the variant, but why is all the focus right now on Legacy and no new toys for the CW line? THE SHOW JUST STARTED!

Put out those freaking new BP's already, and make with the Freeco Speeder!

Totally want that CW Obi-Wan w/ Freeco speeder. All the Deluxe sets on shelves right now seem to be Anakin w/ Can-cell. Like the Ugnaught, btw  ;).

Because Legacy's been hurting all year probably. :)

I just got my ROTJ figures in today from HTS.  I've got no complaints on my willingness to wait on their date at this point.

Panno kicks much ass.  My fav of the wave.

I'll be picking up more of him to army build some Dressellians, if htis wave ever sees any kind of decent distribution.  Ready to get more figures, duplicates, from this wave already so I can't say I'm not hunting for stuff anymore, but I won't be making long toy runs.  Just the routine stuff locally.

Gotta get my 2nd Leia asap.  Very nice figure.  Panno's the wave winner though, to me. 

Both goons, great...  Malakili wasn't wanted but is nice.  Just hope he's phased out quickly.  Ewoks rock, give me more, and more, and more.

Jedi Luke's still coming (Paul got him for me) so other than that, I'm caught up...  Well, I still need the Ball Turret Battlepack but that's another story.

Are the Ewoks and Jedi Luke new?  Geez, I just ordered six figures and if I'd realized those were newish OT stuff I'd likely have ordered them as well.  Nice to get seven figs in quick order from SWS.com as that alleviates a lot of stress from them not hitting here at all.  Ordered slave Leia, Nikto Gunner, Giran, Major Panno, Malakili, Nien Nunb and a Hoth Rebel Trooper I never got previously.  I guess I'll have to leave Luke and the 'woks until I can stumble across Rum Sleg.

Wait... you're asking about the Ewoks?  Seriously?

Both are "new", but the Luke shares some parts with previous Luke's, and the Ewoks I believe are repaints with new accessories, but I could be wrong.  Not opened them yet.

I'll spare you the rant (for now) but I need them for a certain BBQ diorama I'm working on.   >:D
