a lot of people think that the reason for the bar code sticker was because these were initially going to be "value 2 packed" - i have seen some with blank stickers over the UPC's.  It would be insane to find 2-fers of this assortment...

I have heard/read the same - that UPC sticker/bar code does seem to be the same as the blockbuster pack bar code and then the fact that some are turning up with the UPC blanked out sure lends credence to that "they were gonna blockbuster 2-pack these" story.

Scored Agen Kolar and Zuckuss, both from the revised ESB case. I'm glad my local Target ordered the revised case b/c for the LONGEST time the stores was getting only the TPM and ANH waves, and the ESB and ROTS waves were absolutely non-existant. But the revised ESB case hacked out both waves!

Scored Hoth Luke! I'm trying to figure out to attach his grappling hook to him, as the picture on the cardback shows the gun somehow clipped on to his belt, when in fact his belt is painted onto the figure.

Unfortunately, that feature was omitted from the final figure (or it's photoshop trickery) as the only way to attach the grappling hook is to run the control box hose through it.

Thanks much for the advice; I tried that option and am fairly pleased with the result.

So, it's sounding like Canada should be getting the Empire Legacy wave at some point.  I think twice now, in Q&A answers, they've mentioned it, including this week's answer over at Snowtroopers.ca.

If that's the case, and the cardbacks are any different than the US release, I'm looking to find a carded AT-AT Driver.  Willing to pay or trade if anyone can help me out on that.

So far we've had 2 of the 2009/10 waves come to Canada (Wave 8/ESB and Wave 9/ROTJ), but they've been on US cards.   I'd be surprised to see them do it differently for Wave 12/ESB, but I'll certainly watch for you.

I wouldn't be surprised if they're the same as the US release but I appreciate it for checking.

Anyone know which figures come with the head/blaster of HK50?

I know the Red Clone Commander and Luke do, but which of the new repacks come with it?  If any?    ???

That's bizarre.  The ROTS wave Plo Koon has also had HK-50's left arm packed in with him in the TESB wave cases.

That has to be the first instance of Hasbro packing different parts for a single droid with one repack figure.  I've been tracking the repack parts pretty closely myself, but I can't recall having seen a Plo Koon with the HK-50 head.  I'm going to have to take a look now.

There's a 327th Star Corps figure with two different parts for the MB-RA-7 droid.  He originally came with the torso but there's a variant, with a darker pauldron, that has the right leg.

If anyone knows what case revisions that variant came with I'd like to know.

There was also a parts swap on two figures in the Euro cases; they were R2-L3's left leg and R5-A2 torso swapped between Kenobi and the Jawa.
