I wonder then if the figures we're getting on Revenge cards will also come on Return cards.

Endor Han could, feasibly, be the Battlepack version too, with a coat, on a card...  It had a better headsculpt as I recall?  Not so pin-heady, and the likeness seemed better. 

If you look at the Blue Ray DVD set pack they are indeed using the superior BP Endor Han with the better head sculpt, they just added the coat back so I think this will be the case for the single carded version. I hope that is the case as I would love to update the 2006 carded one on my wall that has the better sculpt.

It's odd that the twelfth Revenge figure (Ackbar) isn't listed in either of those cases.

This is completely baseless speculation but I wonder if that means it got axed and exchanged with a different figure (Gamorrean?) that won't be ready with the rest of them.

Only a question guys, about these waves
And forgive me if I skip the trend a little

I have the Darth Vader from tlc
I havenīt bought the vintage style 3 pieces helmet update

As I looked on teh web all this time...
It seems that the only wave to remove the collar (the 3dr piece) is to
first remove the head.

So some reviews tell this instructions

remove head
separate collar
reinsert head without collar.

Is it the way this proceed or there is another way to remove the collar
without separating Vaderīs head?

Thanks in advance

According to Adam Pawlus, this wave has been delayed until October... so it seems as if we're in for yet another without new stuff shipping out. ::)

Wait a minute. They ship new stuff? You wouldn't know it from my stores. I still see the same thing since last November.

Question is since this wave and its revisions kick off the "Revenge" recards, what about the SDCC box set?

That makes sense.  If the "Revenge Of The Jedi" wave were to make it to market before SDCC, then couldn't that potentially hurt the sales of the "Revenge Of The Jedi" SDCC box set?

I'm sure the delay has everything to do with adjusting to the retail situation and little to do with making sure the SDCC set sells.

I think sales of the SDCC set have to factor in to some degree.  Especially since Hasbro has taken to offering the SDCC exclusives online in addition to at the event.  That's got to impact the production numbers to an extent.  But I agree that the situation at retail has been pretty rough and Hasbro is probably taking the opportunity to regroup.  It's really hit or miss as to whether or not you can find anything current in the stores.

So I'm a little confused about this "Revenge" subline - is it being released as a standard TVC wave? I had thought at first that it was a SDCC exclusive that was also going to be released in stores as a chase assortment, of sorts.

They will all (12) be released at retail similar to how the silver foil figures were (3 or 4 per case rev.), the difference is that at SDCC, there will be 2 additional mini carded figures (Salacious Crumb and Mouse Droid) only available in the Death Star boxed set.

Do we have a price tag yet on what the SDCC set will cost?  These are all repacks as far as we know, right?
