Oh! and expect to see light-up blasters in the future, too!

Yeah, the mentioned that during the slide presentation. Now that I think about it, I should have asked how they plan to do it... if the light will show through the muzzle, or if they'll have blast effects attached to the muzzle that'll light up?

I was just thinking about it, and I'd bet the latter...  Blaster in the hand kind of like the hilt of the saber, and a "flash" out of the barrel like they did back in 2002 with the preview Clone, except a light for it.

How bulky will that look? They had to make ROTS Anakin a southpaw light up saber because of his thinner robot right hand.

Although I'll admit I may pick up one or two of the light up saber figures for the heck of it, this line really looks like it can mostly be ignored this year.  Maybe a figure or there, but they really didn't show a whole lot that we hadn't already seen/known about - and I wonder how much more they will put out this year.  We'll see I guess, seems to be sitting around here so far.

I'm officially waiting on the Vader one.  If I'm going to hav ea light-up figure, it'll be Vader and that'll be it till I see if the blaster idea works or not.

I think you were looking at the Clone Wars villain-of-the-week, not a Movie Heroes figure...  Savage Oppress.

Ah, thank you.  Cards were all mixed together, Maul was everywhere.  Then he turned pale yellow.  I was confused. 

That brings up something that I found kind of interesting... I don't follow the CW stuff, pretty much at all. When I heard that they are going to do some of the CW figures in the Realistic Vintage style I didn't know if it meant that they were going to completely do away with the Animated CW line. Upon seeing the displays at Target I actually thought that they had just started to put some animated figures in with the Movie Heros line... There were probably at least twice as many pegs for Movie Heroes stuff as there were for CW or Vintage. And with the packaging being virtually identical from the front it took me a bit to realize that there were two lines mixed together. These two look even more similar that last year's Legends and CW cards. If a season SW collector has trouble immediately noticing the difference, an average retail employee doesn't stand a chance. I hope those of you that collect CW are ready to look for everything online...

Is there a breakdown in this thread or elsewhere that anyone's seen detailing exactly what is a re-paint / resculpt / kit-bash vs. what's just a straight up re-release for this line?

Rob, here's a good break-down of Wave 1.  Pretty much only R2 (new sounds) and Maul (repaint) are the only ones that are not 100% repack.  The Battle Droid comes in two flavors (tan and red), but both are really close to past droid decos form previous Legends BD 2-packs they have put out.

In Wave 2, there are 6 new figures - light-up saber versions of Obi-Wan and Qui-Gon, new gimmicky armed Maul, and a new Battle Padme, Pod Race Anakin and JarJar.

In Wave 3, there are 2 new figures - light-up saber versions of OT Darth Vader and Ep3 Anakin.

Yes, we have been for awhile now. Like the Mandalorian Assault Transport, the Scout Bomber Deluxe set, and the MIA DVD 2-packs. Hasbro has made collecting this line an utter nightmare.

Well, at least the kids can find all those multiple versions of Qui Gon, Anakin, and Maul loitering on the pegs.

I'm not going to lie, I think the light-up figures are a really stupid and pointless idea, but I can honestly say that I'll pick up that light-up Vader when it comes out. I remember owning the POTF light-up Vader vs. Obi-Wan figures, so when I saw this one it brought back some nostalgia. I'll happily buy a light-up ANH Ben if that ever comes out, just to complete the scene.

Has anyone found the second wave of Movie Heroes in any great quantities yet?

My stores are all still loaded with Wave 1 that I'm wondering if we'll ever see the second wave... maybe it's still too early?
