I was kind of expecting this style of logo:



Oh well. I'm over it, and wondering what the TPM cards will look like now.

got an email from BBTS that they have this wave up for pre-order now.  their site has it slated for January.  While that may be an late guestimate because you never know how quickly stuff will sell through the holidays, I kinda hope it stands at that.

Actually that is the logo they used, only it's not slanted.  Doesn't look as cool unslanted.

I see Jeff got some cool pics of Padme with both headdresses on for this wave, over at www.HansHideout.com.

She's really looking outstanding though.  This wave's getting forgotten somewhat, which is a shame because it's putting out some of my most anticipated figures like that Anakin and Zam.

The additional headress for Padme is a nice bonus, I'm really looking forward to it.

Great pics!

Agree.  I already passed my 2002 Peasant Anakin and Zam to the boys to destroy play with in anticipation of the new ones.  Anakin, Zam, Padme, Kit, and the new Blue Guard all look great!

There goes that very sturdy right arm Zam sported.  ;D

I'm really looking forward to this wave. Although I'm more of an OT guy, good figures for Attack of the clones and The phantom menace are in such short supply, I really appreciate them when they come.

Zam is by far my favorite of this wave. I guess I can forgive Hasbro for not giving her a removable arm. :P

Zam and Senate guard are all I'll be purchasing from this wave.

As per the front page...  On the heels of the ROTJ Wave surfacing here, now AOTC Wave figures are surfacing in Asia...  That means not long before they too are in the U.S.

Just great.  ::)

Yeah, it is nice to hear that new stuff is on the way, but I'd be ok with a little bit of a break between the ROTJ wave and this one.  The ROTJ one in particular is one that I (and lots of people I think) would like multiples of with some of the figures, and it is nice to be able to space that out/find them along with the usual round of exclusives hunting.

I'm OK with the AOTC wave coming out so soon after the ROTJ wave, if Hasbro hadn't picked up the pace, we would most likely be seeing this wave in late January, as they had intended at first. They even marked it as a 2011 wave in the slideshows.

I'd be fine seeing it late Junuary, rather than seeing ROTJ wave rushed in/out and this wave possibly rushed as well...  Especially with the annual summer duldrums, which could easily occur again in 2011.

That's my thinking as well.  I'd like to see the ROTJ wave get a nice run at retail.  There is so much nice about that wave, and personally I'd like to grab a lot of extras (Endor Soldiers and Gamorreans in particular).  I'd hate to see it hit for a couple weeks before it is replaced by the AOTC wave right away, which I'm not as interested in.  There's some good there as well, but nothing like the ROTJ wave.
