I see these are now available for Pre-Order @ Entertainment Earth
The assortment is so-so... Depends on your POV I guess.
1x Qui-Gon Jinn (Phantom Menace)
1x Battle Droid (Phantom Menace)
1x Darth Sidious (Phantom Menace)
1x Anakin Skywalker (Phantom Menace)
1x Naboo Royal Guard (Phantom Menace)
1x Quinlan Vos (Phantom Menace)
1x Darth Maul (Phantom Menace)
1x VC87 Luke Skywalker (Jedi Origin)
1x VC88 Princess Leia (Sandstorm)
1x VC89 Lando Calrissian (Sandstorm)
1x VC90 Rebel Trooper (Colonel Cracken)
1x VC91 Rebel (A-Wing) Pilot (Mon Calamari)
Take out the Battledroid and Qui Gon, replace them with 2 of Cracken and maybe 2 of Luke or Maul and I'm into it a bit more. Or some of the 2010/2011 figures nobody could find would be nice too...
But yeah, I pretty much called it on the carry-forwards. Since I don't have ANY TPM wave figures, the case isn't all that bad to me. I can wait on those then if I see them and just get this assortment I think. It'll narrow my TPM buying down a bit too. Not a bad little case I guess... But pretty much exactly what I expected with TPM figures being carried over to "strike while the iron is hot" so to speak.
It makes sense ultimately, but I just don't know if Vintage can handle that many figures carried forward. there's not a ton new there to someone who already has Wave 10.
The Battledroid at least makes sense too, I just personally dislike it and I think a lot of collectors are going to sour on it. Army building as it is has taken a hit with the price hikes, and so if people are like me at all they're not going to army build something as sub-standard as that new BD is.
It may be the Clone/Sandtrooper of 2012?
