I'm of the opinion that anything Hasbro shows off at SDCC really should be released at retail outlets BEFORE Toy Fair. I don't think they're going to make it with the Aayla/Hondo wave, or that EU TLC wave either.

Haven't seen any of 2010 Wave 1 yet. WILL, though. ;)

Picked up a Cold Weather Anakin this evening - the only new figure left from that case. Card was beaten up so I opened him up just now.

Nice figure, looks like the head is a bit too small, but otherwise it's pretty nice.

I really can't wait to get my hands on the Sidious and Talz figures from this wave, they look great.

Pete - awesome score! What store did you find him at? I haven't heard much about Wave 2 hitting any retail outlets yet...

Hmm, blessed by the Toy Gods once again.

I found the whole new TCW Wave of Deluxe Vehicle/Fig packs at TRU this morning, fresh off the truck. Again, only 1 of each and no new figure re-stocks. Odd. Of course I bought them all immediately and they are AWESOME. Cody looks a little sloppy, but the AT-RT is freaking magnificent. Even the Sport Skiff is kinda cool, since I have no recollection of the original.


TRU has also dropped their basic figure prices to $6.99. And they're now stocking the BOGO packs ala Target and Walmart.

Nevermind, I found Snow Anakin last night at Walmart, along with Thi-Sen and the Tactical Droid. No sign of Stone or Sidious though.

Oh, it's on now!

I saw the new Deluxe sets at Walmart for the first time tonight and picked up the AT-RT and Desert Skiff for $15.97 so I could return the two I got jacked up for at TRU to the tune of $19.99 each.  ::)

I would have bought the BARC Speeder too and done the same thing but I didn't have the spare cash on me. Still, that's found money I can easily get back into my pocket. Screw TRU.

I saw remnants of the TCW Wave 2 at a Target Friday, but they only had Snow Anakin and the repacks left. Stone and Sidious eluded me yet AGAIN.  >:(

I hate the spotty arrival of this Wave. I can't swing a dead cat without hitting Wave 1, but Wave 2 is proving to be as hard to nail down as the Legacy TPM Wave when it first hit. Sucks!

The Deluxe Vehicle Fig sets are EVERYWHERE down here now.
