what is different about the X-Wing version and the Vintage version?  I imagine it is the head - but is it that different?  Are there any other differences?

the new one appears to be Luke's body/shorter, whereas the XWing version is using the more "average height" body...  Just stuff like that.  I think it's been established that Lawson is short though, so the Luke is probably more accurate (I believe it was in this thread even, somewhere).

The heads are different though, and the helmet as well I believe.

The TLC Wedge is a kit bash of the Quarren X-wing pilot (from the Comic Pack) and the John D. Brannon (from the Rebel last Rebel Pilots Evolution Set) and a new head and repainted helmet.

Vintage version is a kitbash/repaint of the VOTC X-wing Luke.

I donno. I think if the line continues as Hasbro plans, we'll see him in another case assortment.

Incase you missed out on a pre-order, or finding the elusive Wedge Antilles at retail, site sponsor Entertainment Earth is giving you a good opportunity to get him now, plus another Gammie Guard isn't going to hurt your collection either.

Wave 3, Revision Case

Get your order in, and get your Wedge!

Never saw this guy... he's already come and gone for the most part?

If anyone stumbles across an extra, I'd take it off your hands.

Already sold out, according to JTA.

I still defy Hasbro to prove that this wave ever shipped to a single brick and mortar retail outlet. I've never seen a figure this hard to find.

I think they were all sold to Rite-Aid stores. He is sitting there with a POTF2 8D8.

Since this is the 3rd shipment of these that Entertainment Earth has had on this case assortment I'd say it's only a matter of time before these are all over the place. The variant used to sell for over $300 on the bay and now hit's barely over $40. The price is coming down and I'm sure EE will get another shipment before it's over. They'll probably be everywhere the next toyshow you go to.

The revision shipped as I saw it, but not Wedge.  It was definitely the revision though.

Chuck, you're probably right, and plus Hasbro did say they were making sure Wedge makes it back in 2012.  It's a good case to get though (if you got it) since Wicket's a good one, Ackbar's still popular, Jedi Luke, Gammie of course, Wedgey...

Even the Endor Rebel's a good army builder that around me sells semi-steadily.  I'm seeing only about 2 or 3 at any given store, which isn't bad given how often he's been repacked, haha.

Hey Guys,

Sorry for being late to the party.

How is this figure different from the 09 legacy collection - target exclusive figure?
Please enlighten me.  Thanks

New head, and it's on a Luke body since apparantly Dennis Lawson is a pretty short dude in the grand scheme.  Personally, I'm not that bothered to get it...  The helmet deco looks nice but I dont' think I'd even say it's nicer than previous versions.

I want one more for the card even.

Thanks for the response. I know that the figure is supposedly rare but I just can't justify spending over $50 for an action figure

I can't justify $10 for figures anymore, so yeah I agree.

Honestly, I feel you, cause when I see $11.95 at toysrus for the vintage figures I have a problem with that. I live in NYC so I'm glad that we have targets in the area to battle toysrus with their greed. However, what I see what they want for this wedge figure; I want to ask these people are they crazy for asking that much money for one figure. I'll deal with $10 - 12 dollars for a figure but I won't go above that.
