EE just revised the preorder schedule for these...now estimated to arrive in January 2010.  :(  Boo...

I'm suddenly glad I bought the Vebb - a 3 month gap in figure waves is hard to stomach.

Bump for 2010; according to all sources this Wave should be out now.

Seems like an opportune time to start my first "WHERE THE F ARE THE NEW TOYS" rant of the year.  ;D

This Wave has been around since SDCC, so I figure they may as well go ahead and put 'em out. Last new TCW wave was what, 3-4 MONTHS ago? (!)

I'm officially jonesing for new swag.

And they are out now!  Or at least, we're presently filling most backorders at Entertainment Earth, assuming you pre-ordered.  Aayla and Hondo are both really impressive, although Hondo's goggles may be glued down?  I can't tell, I don't want to break it.

Thanks for the good news! I wonder if this means both waves will be hitting on top of each other at retail too. Or will there be some separation?

I am guessing the next sign will be seeing these pop up carded on eBay, which has yet to happen, so probably a ways off yet from Wally and Target.

Based on how waves 6-10 were for us, I'd expect them to basically be showing up all at once at retail when they hit.  And since the case is half (or more than half) old product it might be tougher to realize when they hit and were missed, just like some of the other waves since August.

Interesting , I checked out EE this morning and these are already listed as temporarily out of stock so I guess that first batch went all to pre-orders.

I also dug around last night and found a few carded Wave 12 on eBay (Thi-Sen, etc). But no carded Wave 11 figures. Odd.

At any rate, I am guessing these will start to show up soon at the brick and mortars.

Adam, do you have any more details on the case assortment ratios?

We had several cases in stock after filling pre-orders, but they went pretty fast. 

Aayla sticks out as a high point in the wave, Hondo's pretty great, Bly is what you expect, and Jek is just a little different than the Wal-Mart one.  Like, the shoulder strap thing is painted differently.  That's pretty much it.

Just found this wave at my local TRU- picked up Aayla and Hondo. So at least they're now out there in the wild.  :)

I am somewhat interested in that Aayla even though I don't really collect CW figures.  from the pics I have seen looks pretty darn good/non-animated.

will wait til I see her at retail.

Where do you live?

We don't seem to be getting jack-squat on the East Coast.

I'm in Iowa. Kind of weird there were no sightings of this wave on the west coast prior to me finding these. :)

I actually read a few reports of them being spotted at TRU's on the West Coast, I believe prior to the Iowa and MN sightings. But either way, they're hitting pretty haphazardly. I just read reports of these being spotted at Walmarts in Alabama!

I have hit 6/7 Walmarts in Richmond today to no avail.

Sweet success! I found this wave today at TRU...had to hit 2 to complete the wave, but well worth the miles. No sign of Wave 2, but I'm more than satisified with what i got. Aayla and Hondo are home runs for sure.

Woot!
