I'd make sense for two waves of CW figs to be out to promote the theatrical release.

i guess i can make one of these things to see how much money I will need to have saved for this big day.

TLC Basic Figures

Ak-Revx1
Bane Malar x1
Chewbaccax1
Darth Vader x1
Han Solo x1
Leektar & Nippet x1
Luke Skywalker x1
Yarna Dal Gargan x1
= $90.30

CW Basic Figures

Anakin Skywalker x1
Battle Droid x2
Captain Rex v2 x0
Clone Trooper x5
General Grievous x1
Obi-Wan Kenobi x1
R2-D2 x1
Yoda x0
= $124.18

Vehicles

AT-TE x1
A-Wing Fighter (Wal-Mart) x1
Homing Spider Droid x0
Millenium Falcon x1
V-19 Starfighter x0
=$327 (assuming the Falcon is $150 in cdn)

Battle Packs

Hoth Speeder Bike Patrol x0
Speeder Bike Recon (unconfirmed) x0
 pass for now. depends on price.

Evolutions

Padme Amidala-pass for now. although i do really want that AOTC padme
Rebel Pilots x1
= 33

rough estimated total is around $575

so far i have about $250 saved up with another $100 i got back from tax returns. the only thing that sucks is that i wont be able to use any money from my job due to university coming close. Hasbro picked a great time to put this stuff out....right when I'm about to  throw basically everything I saved up for to university lol.
 I'm just hoping my parents will help me out this one last time loll. and if worst comes to worst i will  only buy one each of the clone and battle droid, skip the A-wing (considering i only want the pilot) and that would lower it to around $475. and if i am Still strapped on cash...ill head down to the states to pick up what i need lol. i got it all planned out. 8)



School has been on strike all month. so much for the summer job I was hoping to get D:

At least it won't nearly be expensive as ROTS release day. Too bad this is happening during comic-con though.

So here's what I'll be getting of this stuff, though not all on 7-26. (Those that I'll be looking to buy that day are marked in green)
TLC Basic Figures Figures may be $8 each
Yarna Dal Gargan X1
Bane Malar X1
Han Solo X1
Luke Skywalker X1
Chewbacca X1
Leektar & Nippet X2-3
Darth Vader X1
Ak-Rev X1
Obi-Wan Kenobi (General) X1
Saesee Tiin (General) X1
Padme Amidala (Ilum) X1
Scuba Trooper X5
Quad Cannon Trooper X2
Mon Calamari Warrior X4-6
Quarren Warrior X4
IG Lancer Droid X4

Vehicles
Millenium Falcon X1 ($160)
AT-TE X3 ($100 each)
Homing Spider Droid X4 ($20-25 each)<--though prolly just 2 of them to start then get the other two later.
V-19 Starfighter X1-2 ($20 each)

Battle Packs$20-25 each set
STAP Attack X1 (maybe up to 4 more if they go on sale)
Hoth Patrol X1

Evolutions $20 each set.
Padme Amidala X1
Rebel Pilots X1

Figuring conservative and getting the minimums of wants at the minimum prices, thats $898 before tax. $960 after tax.

For just what I plan on buying that specific day the total is $528 and after tax is $565. Thankfully, I already have that covered with my tax refund and rebate monies. I may swing for some of the other $400 in stuff, just depends.

This total doesn't come close to what I spent for each of the prequel toy release dates, but is a large enough total on it's own merit.
I'm just a humble collector trying to make his way through the universe...of toy aisles.

So, with the big Indy release kind of slowing down now (the toys) - and the Star Wars lull pretty much in effect aside from a few Legends, the Rancor, and the Mygeeto BP - is anyone starting to formulate what they're going to pick up on the big 7/26 day?  I really hope we'll get a clearer idea of what exactly will be out that day as we get closer - and, with the big vehicles and exclusives - I kind of hope that we don't see multiple waves of figures right away.  I originally planned/hoped on picking up both the Falcon and AT-TE, but I don't know if I can afford that or not.  I'm starting to "prioritize" a list for that day, and see what I'm able to afford.  I hope to at least get the Falcon, then probably try to grab the TRU Exclusive GH Rancor set (because those always seem tougher to get), and then the TLC figures.  It would be nice to get an AT-TE as well, but I might have to wait and hope that it will be available later.  It depends on what I can get saved up (or get in gift cards for my b-day).  Is anyone else having to space it out a bit more?  Its similar to the ROTS release for me, but this time the two vehicles alone can almost add up to what I spent on the ROTS release day.

I'm planning on this being my last big hoorah for Star Wars... my interest in the line has decreased severely, and I'm much happier collecting Indiana Jones figures now. I'm planning on getting Legacy waves 1 and 2, Padme Evolutions, and the BMF, and other than a few select figures (mainly ICMG, SA Jar Jar, and SA Jake Lloyd) I'm pretty much done with Star Wars.

Until we get a final list of what will be out on 7/26 (which I'm sure we will around June/early July) here's what my list looks like for now...

TLC Basic Figures

Bane Malar (x1)
Chewbacca (x1)
Darth Vader (x1)
Han Solo (x1)
Leektar & Nippet (x1)
Luke Skywalker (x1)
Yarna Dal Gargan (x1)


Vehicles

AT-TE (x1, MAYBE; depends on monetary/space situation)
Millenium Falcon (x1)


Evolutions

Padme Amidala (x1)
Rebel Pilots (x1)


Shouldn't be TOO expensive for me, a little under $250.

It seems that, at least how I understood some of the Q and A answers this week, that a number of things might not be quite "ready" for the 7/26 date.  From what I read, it sounded as if both the Comic Packs and Galactic Heroes (Cinema Scenes) - at least the new ones - would be out about a month later.  Maybe I was misunderstanding their answers though.  As much as I'm looking forward to some of that, I'm kind of glad at this point for any breaks we might have.  The vehicles alone are pricey enough for one day's spending.  I do wish we'd get some sort of "official" list of items for release on the big day.

I saw in the Q and A this week at JediNews.uk that Hasbro confirms that there will be just the 8 (Animated) Clone Wars figures out on the release day (in addition to a couple of exclusives - like the Holo Grievous I'm guessing).  The next wave(s) won't be out until a couple of months later.

If you hold back on one of the AT-TEs and one of the V-19s, you're practically there.
I think the AT-TEs will sit longer than the Falcon. But not by much. But at least this way, you've got al of them and can go back for seconds another time. 

Just a thought.

^ That's a good question... what will sell faster?  The AT-TE or the Falcon?

I'd go with the AT-TE - it's $50 cheaper, is the first time it's been offered, and it's clone related... but I guess time will tell.

The only reason I'm undecided on the BMF is because my focus on colleticg is Clone Wars and EU. As sweet as teh BMF is, it really doesn't fit in my collection. Besides the AT-TE is something I've been wanting for 6 years....
