2008-What's Left
« on: September 29, 2008, 09:42 PM »
Just curious...I've picked up the newest Legacy (repaint) wave, and Clone Wars wave 2.  Outside of the ROTS wave, are there any other NEW figures coming out this year?  I don't collect repacks and I kind of stunned that it's only Sept 30, and there's little left for the year.

Any chances of the ANH wave hitting at x-mas?

If it realy is this slow, I may find something else to buy for a little while.

Yeah, I think Saga Legends is due up next.  Undoubtedly the retailers will order those up in droves.  I guess the ANH wave COULD get out there.  I assume there will be some sort of Clone Wars/Legacy wave revisions to.  You may be done for the year for single packed figures?

Me.  I have a looooong ways to go yet with Legacy and Clone Wars and vehicles and comic packs and evolutions and battle packs.  Sigh.

I feel like its been a slow year with the figures and that not many waves came out.

And I'm thankful for the slow year.

If one is completely caught up, the rest of the '08 line should comprise of the following:

Legacy wave 4 - 6 figures
Saga wave 2 revision figures - 4 figures?
Comic packs waves 3 and 4 - 8 sets?
Shield Generator BP
Yavin BP ('08?)
ATT tank (blue)
A-Wing
Gunship
ARC 170
Scarlac UBP
Joker Squad
Rebel TIE
Crimson (power rangers) set

Also, I'm not sure if it is accurate or not, but the RS slide presentation (as well as online stores like BBTS) show Wave 3 of the Clone Wars line on the way this year too still (Dooku, Ventress, Plo Koon, C-3PO, Destroyer Droid, IG-86 Assassin Droid).

I believe that Hasbro said somewhere in this week's Q&A that the ANH wave will be out this fall. I wouldn't be surprised, and part of me hopes it does show up before Christmas just because I'll be in desperate need of more OT stuff by then.

Given the spacing of the waves so far, I think we might see the ANH wave a little bit before Christmas.  You can usually count on the first wave of the following year to show up right before the holidays.
