Maybe it's a SW/Joe cross-over.  All the Royal Guards are Freds underneath?  ???

Nice to finally get a peek at the "training gear" that is coming with the Royal Guard.  I don't know if I can bring myself to call it "Crimson Guard" gear though Jayson, because it's not...  this is:

LOL!

Thank you! Someone else who gets the Fred reference!  WE had a CG this last weekend at CONvergence, and he had no idea what it meant when he was called Fred.

Jedi Temple archives is reporting that supposedly this wave will be an online exclusive...  I am confused, if this is true where does that put wave 17?

This rumor was bouncing all over Twitter last night, seems strange to me that they wouldn't have said something at Comic Con if this were true...

Maybe they will announce it at the upcoming Celebration?  Would be nice to see a case assortment soonish

Aren't ALL their waves de facto online exclusives now anyway? Who can find anything in actual stores?

Man...I hope that's not true. I want about six of those royal guards.

Well - here's what's left:

VC71 - DTF Repack 1
VC72 - DTF Repack 2
VC73 - DTF Repack 3
VC74 - DTF Repack 4
VC102 - Ahsoka Tano (TCW Realistic)
VC103 - Obi-Wan Kenobi (TCW Realistic)
VC104 - Lumat
VC105 - Emperor's Royal Guard
VC106 - Nien Nunb
VC107 - Weequay
VC113 - Republic Trooper (The Old Republic)
VC114 - Prune Face

(sorry I'm too lazy to look up what the numbers are for the Naboo Pilot, Mawhonic, Aurra Sing & Gungan Warrior repacks)

That is EXACTLY 12 figures.

While I wouldn't be 100% thrilled, I would be totally okay if it meant that the cases of this assortment were just simply one of each figure listed above.

I would buy four cases and just be "done" with the wave - and if I could score Royal Guards on Amazon then great, otherwise, I'll just wait and hope that the figure gets re-released so I can further army build him.

I was really hoping that this wave would be the wave that hit - in force - at the brick-and-mortar stores.

I agree with Scott - it seems VERY odd that they didn't mention this at Comic Con - they had these 12 figures on display and glossed over them in their presentation because it was just like a "business as usual" attitude towards the ends of the 2012 Vintage, Movie Heroes and Clone Wars lines. I think this is something you should have mentioned Dimowitz!

For the exception of Weequay, I could do without this wave.

It's not army builder heavy save for the Republic Trooper...  Which kinda blows as I'd like a little squad of him at least, but if they're online only it hardly would make this wave any different than anything else.

Like Scott said this was definitely bouncing all over Twitter last night and i know I saw some other site mentioned that started it.  A site I wasn't totally familiar with but I think eFranks brought it up.  He might recall it.

If it is indeed an online thing, it might be easier for me to buy a case and get rid of the CW realistic ones and I'll remember you for the Republic Trooper.

Thanks Steve...  I'd appreciate that! :) 

If all 12 of those are one solid case online only, I can't say I'd be too upset.  It's a tidy way to wrap that wave up, as long as pre-sales don't blow out and people miss out of course.  I hate limited edition stuff, and that EU wave was kind of limited.

If that is the case like Pete is suggesting then I would have no problem putting in an order for the case and only be stuck with a spare Aurra and Mawhonic.
