I'm shocked that the saber is not full length - or is it? Wasn't the blade longer in the cartoon? To me, it seemed to be the same length of a standard lightsaber.

Nice shots of loose figs from this Wave on the front page.

Aurra's antenna is starting to bug me though...looks like some kind of weird growth from the top of her head. Wish they had slapped a different paint app on there.

Isn't that what it was?  That's what I thought it looked like to me in the toon.

It's supposed to be an sub-neural antenna grafted to her head. Depending on which source you reference, the color varies.

On the Premium Format Sideshow figure, it is clearly differentiated from her natural chalky skin tone.

On the show, it was colored white. In the films, it's really hard to tell if it's even there in most shots. On the figure, they made it a lot thicker too.

Anyway, Plo Koon chopped it off, so it's sort of a moot point I guess.

iirc from earlier shots it looked to be removable - only problem is then she had a divit in her head.

It is removable... if I remember correctly, the POTJ figure has NO antenna at all.

Probably premature to be posting this, but my company recently relocated some business offshore to Manila, and we have a contingent headed over next week to start the advance work. The gal that sits behind me is part of that team, and graciously agreed to hunt for the Wave 1 TCW figures that are out over in the Phillipines now. She's due back in about 10 days I believe, so with a little luck I may actually have these carded buggers in hand before the month is out. We'll see.

TRU.com has this entire wave in stock and available for sale online - $7.49 each!!! (Plus shipping and handling)

I just ordered all 4 new figures - Grievous, Pre, Aurra, and Mando Guard for $36.46 total.

All are still in stock as of this writing.

They also had the new Interceptor Tank, plus a few of the new Deluxe Vehicle Figure packs, but most of those were sold out already.

If anyone out there is as pumped as I am to get these, might be worth a look!  :)

After realizing I could get free shipping with any order over $49, I went back and canceled my original order and re-submitted it with the new Clone Interceptor Tank thrown in to put me over the threshold. $60.83 total for 4 new TCW figures, plus the Vehicle. I figure that's probably not much more than I'd be likely to pay in the store anyway. Plus no brutal six week wait.  ;D

Super psyched about this, hope some of the rest of you guys get in on the action too!

Yeah, I also treated myself to some new toys. Three Clone Wars guys (Grevous, Aurra, and Pre) and the snowspeeder. My total after tax was $54ish, which isn't too bad. The way I figure it is that I'm paying about $5.00 to get some new swag a bit early. Plus I will spend $50 less in August.

Stopped in at TRU today to do some b-day shopping for our daughter, and found these on the pegs (as well as the "new" Legends figures - no sign of Vintage).  Kind of cool to see something new on the pegs.

Where do you live, bro?

Did they have the new Deluxe Vehicle Figure packs out too?
