Wedge confirmed for the Vintage line.

Just read that...great news.  Not only to finally get Wedge on a single card, but on a vintage card at that.  Very cool.  I wonder if it will be a repack of the Wedge from the X-Wing pack, or another version?

People keep saying that, but Wedge was indeed carded before.  Granted it was an exclusive figure, but he has been single carded before.  ;)

If it's coming this Fall (and we've already seen the ESB stuff), I'm guessing it'll be the recent pack-in pilot Wedge on a RotJ card...

Probably not as exciting as Wedge, but a new Aurra Sing confirmed for next year!

wow, I posted that as a question to be asked here on this site but then after seeing the new one for the CW line at TF - I wasn't really interested anymore in seeing a new one - I thought the CW one was pretty dang sweet and figured I would pick it up.  Well, I won't now!   ;D

When is the first wave shipping?  This Fall or early 2011?

No ANH wave in early 2011. It will be instead split up and spread across the year.

Potentially annoying.

Maybe not... from HH:

the theme for Wave 2 of Vintage, with eight figures will be brought in (seven from EpIII and one from EpIV).

Maybe Wedge will be the "one from EpIV"?  Guess we wait and see...

ANH/ROTJ Wedges wouldn't be too different from each other except, perhaps, the headsculpt I guess.  Wedge may have a shaggier do in 77 than 83 I guess.

I saw in Rebelscum's answers this week, it sounds like the trend of the first wave of vintage (being mostly resculpts/updates of previously done characters) will continue for this line for the foreseeable future.  I know some were disappointed with the fact that we weren't getting much "new" in that ESB wave, but I do think the figures look pretty nice.  If you look at a lot of people's wishlists anymore, it seems like more and more resculpts are requested and the "collector" figures are getting more and more obscure.  I'm ok with waves comprised of good resculpts/updates, and 1 or 2 good "never before seen" characters.  Hopefully they can get the original vintage line finished up in the next couple years, along with resculpts of some of the POTF2/POTJ leftovers, and then flesh out the waves with the requested "fan" figures.

Actually, I think that's a million times more exciting.

What's the deal with this?  Jedi Temple Archives is asking 2 questions and then 2 more under the guise of Jedi Temple War Room, which is what, just their forum name?

I think they confirmed a Senate Duel Palpatine for ROTS as well.  I am the camp that is happy for a carded Wedge at retail finally.  I skipped on the exclusive one a few years back because of the price.  I just thought it was too much for what it was at the time.  I am really not that stoked for an Aura Sing but she definately needed an update to the POTJ version.

Are you kidding?

So where is your outrage at SSG & Collection Station for their coordinated Q&A efforts? 

Let's also take into account Sandtroopers & The Jawa which are both under the same umbrella.

Remember Rebelscum & their affiliate Cool Toy Review? 

Oh, and there's also Jedi Insider which is part of TNI...both participating in the Q&A. 

And then there's this very site which has staff here and at Han's Hideout.
