Cripes, the shelves are filthy with these things around here.

I'd be willing to buy any of these things you guys need in exchange for TCW Wave 7. (Padme, Matchstick, etc)I need all 4...

I am just completely over waiting for this &*@#! wave to arrive already...

You are definitely in the minority on those comic packs my friend.   :(

I agree...  Around me, you're lucky to see the REPACKED (in red) comics that ship with the new ones like Luke/Lumiya or Katarn/Vong...  I'd like 2 more Katarn/Vong packs and another Luke/Lumiya one.  I'm right now not that hopeful. :(

Saw Luke and Lumiya today at K-Mart. They also had a TON of Hasbro boxes right off the truck sitting in the aisle waiting to be opened. I am hoping those contain something good...will have to check back later tonight.

Write back on what you find - even I'm anxious!

Weird...I went back later that night and didn't notice anything new in the SW section, but the huge stack of boxes was gone. Maybe it was all GI Joe/Transformers stuff?

This place is right across from my new office, so I will keep a close eye on it. Bummer...

Hope no one was expecting new comic packs anytime soon...  from the Q&A at HH:

3. Do you have any updates on the timing of the Fall 2009 Comic Packs that were shown at SDCC? Most e-tailers haven't even started taking pre-orders for them yet, which indicates they are probably farther away than we'd like. That fact, combined with some of the recent "Legacy Slowdown" answers in the Q&A is leading to many theories that the Comic Packs line may be ending sooner than anyone wanted.

** They are farther away than we'd like. We have really been struggling with the Comic Packs, but there is some good news - the remaining Fall packs should be out around March time frame. We're still hopeful that we can get to the Spring 2010 ones shown at Comic Con eventually as well, but right now we're focused on the Fall ones

So, anything that said "Fall 2009" at SDCC is now "Spring 2010" and anything that prevously said "Spring 2010" is now a "maybe someday".   :(

Given what I've spent, I'm ok with that.  I just will be disappointed if we don't get what was pictured (at some point down the road) because those were some of the better figures in this series I've seen...  Cammie/Fixer, Noghri...  Good stuff.

Future Comic 2-Packs

Quote
A. The comic packs have really been struggling lately, and right now we will be challenged to get to the 2010 packs that were shown at Comic Con.  That said, here's the numerical lineup through the end of the year (after Darth Krayt & Sigel Dare, pack #8):

Republic #83: Bogey Squad (#9)
Routine Valor: Commander Cody's Lieutenant and Trooper (#10)
Tales of the Jedi #6: Exar Kun & Ulic Quel Droma (#11)
Republic #65: Jedi Masters Thome & T'ra Saa (#12)
Classic Star Wars Early Adventures #1: Black Hole Stormtrooper (#13)
 
Beyond that, we'll hold onto that as the packs may not get out.  As for the Empire Darklighter pack with Camie and Fixer, it will be coming as a convention exclusive set next year.  The Heir to the Empire pack with Noghri and Ralrra does not currently have a home; right now it might become a Convention exclusive in 2011.

That's really sad that Comic Packs are pretty much dead after he spring Batch. I am happy to hear that the Cammie Pack is coming after all. The former Spring 2010 sets looked so good hopefully they will find a home in the lineup one day. I still blame Hasbro for this one far too many bad choices and reissues killed this line in my opinion.

As long those figures we saw comes out & hopefuly single carded, I'm ok if the comic pack die out.

Welcome news for me, however I wonder if this goes for the WM Comic packs as well.

I don't recall who would be featured in that first pack, Bogey Squad?

Nevermind, its the Kashyyyk trooper and Commander.

Well that blows.  I really like this line and would actually rank many of the figures above what we've gotten in the basic line.  Very happy to hear that we're still getting Thome & T'ra Saa at some point.  Not very happy that the last two are going to be convention exclusives - that means double the price we would have paid.  Hey Hasbro, I'll buy an extra set I don't need if you'll just release these in stores (since that's what I'll end up spending anyway).  :P
