Got my Movie Heroes 2012 Wave 3 (what would have been our Wave 4) from Toy Palace today.
Very relieved to have finally gotten it.
They shipped the case surrounded in bubble wrap in a larger box, so the figures and the case arrived in MINT condition which is fantastic.
So - I have all of the 24 Movie Heroes from 2012 in my mint-on-card collection now. I'd have loved to grab at least a couple of the Light-up Sandtrooper and "exploding" tan Battledroid figures - I wouldn't have gone crazy army building them - but at least two open would have been nice to have.
This case is just yet another example of Hasbro just being totally out of touch with what will get a collector to buy any one figure over another figure. Surely the light-up Obi-Wan or Qui-Gon figures couldn't cost any more money to make than the light-up Sandtrooper, so why, in what would have been your FINAL 2012 Movie Heroes case would you include them yet again, but not double-up on the other three "new" figures in the case?!?!?
Seems like you're a lot less likely to end up with light-up Sandtroopers hanging on the pegs than you are with the light-up EP1 figures. Same thing goes with including the Darth Maul (MH15) and Yoda (MH09) figures in this case - why not drop them and double-up on the Boba Fett and Exploding Battle-droid figures?
Keep making stupid decisions Hasbro and blame everyone but yourselves....
