Only 3 REVENGE carded figures?  That's strange, especially since the whole REVENGE theme seemed to be a big deal with Hasbro at Comic Con.  Plus, I've been wondering if Hasbro was going to include that running change Endor Rebel from the Death Star pack in REVENGE case assortments at some point.

The "Endor Rebel" is only listed in the Wave 8 case so far, not in the Wave 8 Rev1 case or the Wave 9 case.   I don't think we will know for sure what the status is on the single carded Revenge Black Endor Rebel until that Wave 8 case starts hitting eBay/retail.

In that case we'll be waiting for months given the murky status of Wave 8.  Although we should find out something useful at NYCC.

Sorry, I should have been more clear - I was using the EE wave #s -

Wave 8 = Revenge Case Pack 1
Wave 8 Rev 1 = Revenge Case Pack 2
Wave 9 = Bastila/Ponda/Hoth Rebel / Revenge Case Pack 3

I did not mean *old* Wave 8 (Aayla/Evazan/Etc).

Wait - Scott - that Ackbar that came in the case, isn't it the "Revenge" version as well? Out of Wave 8, Wave 8 Rev 1 and Wave 9, this is the only case where Ackbar appears - if he's not on a "Revenge" cardback then that means that he is exclusive to the Death Star set. (for now)

I was hoping that the Ackbar and Wicket were both "Revenge" cardback variants in addition to the Vader, Jedi Luke and B-Wing pilot.

No Leia or Endor Rebel in my case.  I got Jango Fett though...

The hoth rebel tech is just "meh"...

I will have to see how he looks with the other guys, but honestly, this could be my last wave.  The collection may be as "complete" as it is going to get for me.

Other than the removable helmet (or lack thereof) I thought he looked really good Paul, what's souring you on him?  I don't have him of course, but I thought he looked good.

I refuse to buy a case for just a few new figures. This distribution situation is terrible.

I've seen Revenge Ackbar offered at Brian's toys. Not sure how they got him.

It's not out of the question. BBTS, Entertainment Earth and Brian's Toys have started receiving new assortments with the Revenge carded figures. It'll only be a short while before they hit retail.

Really love the final Hoth Rebel.  The samples all looked a little off to me but this final product is very much a home run.  Neutral posed and faced, removable goggles, really great all around.




To be honest, a little underwhelmed by Walrusman.  Mainly because he has a perma lean as one leg seems longer than the other.  Arms are cool, I am going to display with the fins.  I also think the holster is also a little wonky as the gun doesn't really fit in there
