Great news!

TRU.com has this whole wave in stock NOW and available for immediate shipping! ($9.99 a pop)

They also have the Snowspeeder and Bespin Cloud Car, also in stock as of this writing.

I just placed an order myself, I just couldn't hold out any longer.  ;D

WOOT!

I went to get these with the sale today and all are gone except 3-PO and Vader.  Oh, well.  I can wait a while longer.

I've been so annoyed with Hasbro Star Wars distribution for the last half a year, I don't even care when I get these.

It's quite a task getting me to lose interest, but Hasbro managed to pull it off.

I see these in stock at tru.com, and I'm not even ordering them, for absolutely no other reason than lack of motivation.

Yet.

Cool deal! I was gonna hit TRu in a while anyway to get a giftcard for a birthday I'm taking my son to this afternoon. I'll reply later if my TRU had anything.

Most impressive. I like how Vader's helmet isn't weird-looking in order to support the 3 helmet pieces... the TLC 2008 release had a somewhat enlongated dome.

These will be out in full force soon enough.  Every launch assortment has been stupid easy to find.  I'm relaxing and will find them when I find them.  I'm more interested in the new CW figs, and the new OT ships.

Picked up six of this wave, a cloud car and a snowspeeder. Really impressed with all of them.

For anyone outside of the US who is already able to buy these at retail, can you give a description or image of the backside of the card? I don't believe Hasbro released a photo of the backside and I'm curious to see what they did. I'm hoping it's someone stylized like the old vintage cards.

They are identical in design to the previous VOTC/VTSC cards.

Quite a few of the sites got pics of cardbacks during Toy Fair - they are a lot like the vOTC/vTSC cards...

It's a nice, clean presentation, but I would have hoped that, like the vintage cards, they showcased off a chunk of the collection - but being that this is Wave 1, it makes sense. I'm surprised they're not including character descriptions anymore.

It'll be interesting to see what they use for the large inset photo for figures that were never on the Vintage Kenner cards.

Scratch that, they just advertise it as "First Issue Vintage *insert name* Card".

So Vader and Hoth Leia have 'promo' bursts on their cards?
