Just bought one of the ROTS ones tonight at the local toy show...  Less than $4.  I can live with that.  :D

I was never happy with the ROTS Royal Guard because I only ever found one at retail. I want more!

It's all about the cape. The ROTS version was inadequate, especially after seeing how well it could be done with the TFU black version. This new one doesn't look as good as TFU cut, but it's a definite upgrade.

I want 6 of that Guard.  They are definative examples of that character. 

Hopefully I can trade a few of the Prequel figures for a few.

The Imperial guard is the figure that's been done a bunch of times, and never really well...certainly not as well as the vintage version. I'm excited about this new one, since it looks like they've finally nailed it.

Royal Guard with switch out gear is awesome.

I still have to shake my head over that TFU Shadow Guard.  It was probably one of the most HTF figures of all time.  And even with the TRU exclusive TFU packs, that figure never got repacked.  It really was annoying!

This is the last vintage wave for now, right? It'll be interesting to see how the rest of the year turns out with waves 4-7 fighting their ways onto the shelves at the same time.

They'll just vanish like the waves from 2011. I didn't even see that much of the wave with Rebel Fleet Trooper or Revenge of the Jedi carded figures, the wave with Bastila Shan I didn't see at all.

Where did they all go? Other parts of the country? An alternate dimension?

Hell I don't think I have seen anything new since TPM.  Before that I saw an Echo Base Trooper.  So, I think that was remnants of the last "new" wave I have seen other than TPM wave of course.  Anyway, I want a few of the Royal Guards for sure.  I don't really care for the extra comic book accessories but it's nice that Hasbro included it for those of that you that do.  I would not mind TPM wave figures being online exclusives.  Not that I don't want them but they are just going to clog the pegs another 8 months.

The revenge waves sat in warehouses and got dumped at Tuesday Morning. It seems the Panda Baba waves got unloaded at babies R us.

I don't think that will be the case at all.  I seriously doubt waves 4 and 5 will ever hit en masse.  If, and that's a big if, new vinty figs hit retail, it will be waves 6 and 7.  There won't be multiple waves fighting their way onto shelves.  Maybe I'm wrong...

That's right...the Tuesday Morning here closed 2 years ago and the nearest one is an hour away.

I checked Babies R Us here once...no non-baby toys. Awkward going into a story like that. Good place to meet single women, though. LOL.
