That's sweet.  Nice "Character Debut" stickers on the bubbles...I wonder if that will be the same for the states.

Yes. The Character Debut stickers are on the US cards as well (even the Naboo soldier despite being released before in the original TPM/E1 line.  :P )

Yeah, the stickers were on the packaging at NYCC.

I've already decided that I'm going to peel off all the character debut stickers at the store and stick them on Darth Maul.

That's committing fraud!  :P

ok so we get a SA Doltey Dofine aka Stunted slime - great; now how about doing the same for the two MOST prominent Neimodiens - Nute GUnray and Rune Hako?? Nute had speaking parts in all three Prequel movies so he is a Must Have!

Nute should be deluxe figure with his walking throne.

Yeah, right...like they'd gamble on a $20 Nemoidian.

I'm actually surprised they went with Daultay.  I don't mind too much as he's turned out very well, but I would have thought they would devote a slot to a more visible character - even maybe Tey How, who seems to be on more people's lists.  Basically I'm saying I wanted a new TPM 3-PO.

At $10 a pop, and the way the line is anymore, I kinda hope they spend their tooling $ on, well, less of a tool than a Neimoidian...  No offense, Rune.

I like weirdoes as much as the next guy, but the way the line is priced now I just am really not interested in a figure if I think what I have of him is pretty sufficient.  Catch me a year or three ago and I'd be a little more interested in the more prominent Neimoidians getting figures redone...  Now, yeah, I'm ok with what I have.  As it is, Daultay Dofine's going to be a tough pill to swallow, and he's super articulated with cloth robes.

Picked up Daulty and Anakin today - at Wal-Mart... wow, Dofine is amazing.

I'll be buying several of him.  Hasbro really gave this character the royal treatment.  I hope they do the same for Gunray within the next year.

Thanks Scott.

No Rats Tyrell, Qui-Gon or Obi-Wan yet.  And Maul is out of stock.  Limit 5 per customer.  But I did get:

2 x Ben Quadinaros
1 x Neimodian
5 x Battle Droid
1 x Palps
3 x Naboo Royal Guard

I bought the following online today:

Vos x 2
Maul x 2
Sidious x 2
Naboo Guard x 3

I passed on the others, I don't need to go crazy with these yet.  Already have an Amidala as a gift I received from a Yakker for Christmas, and opened the Anakin and Dofine I got today at Wal-Mart - these are actually WORTH the price.  If distribution is better this year, it could be a great year for vintage if they keep up this level of quality.

Did these wave 10 figures suddenly disappear from the toysrus.com website?  It looks like TRU just took them all down.

That makes me wonder if order cancellation notices are coming next.
