No. Those people will have all quit the hobby again...like they claim they are going to.  It was all about retro packaging!

I would definitely love to see the Royal Guard re-released in 2013 as part of the Droid Factory or heck, even in the Movie Heroes line. Would definitely give me the opportunity to have a squad in the movie-uniform and a squad in the training uniform from the comics...

I'm always perplexed with Hasbro produces such a great figure and then makes it limited.

Also, I'm not 100% convinced that this wave won't have a second life at Five Below or TJ Maxx like the AOTC wave did. I still keep adding to my Super Battle Droid ranks each time I see one of them for $5 or less...

Then tells us how new tooling costs limits what they can do.

I wonder if that's a prerequisite of being a Royal Guard, growing a beard.....

there's a big ceremony where they're sworn into the guard, and Vader or Palpatine make their beards grow with the force really quick.

That's exactly what I suspected.  I've heard rumors about the swearing-in ceremony for Biker Scouts, but it doesn't involve facial hair....

Not sure exactly where to post on the last vintage wave 17 yet..but here goes.

I jumped on an auction for the Tri-Logo version of last wave (17) of the vintage line.  We all knows what tends to happen with the last waves don't we?  In addition, does anyone know what the production runs may be on this last wave.  Hearing all kinds of things, and thre's a weird "vibe" with this wave.  It's an online store only dealthistime around, so I'm guessing production runs will obviously be low, but also worried that they won;t move as quickly, not having the brick and mortars selling as well.  These may show up in weird places..yet to be heard or determined.

I'm hearing from a few folks that the Tri-Logos were cut way short of production this time around (and they usually have a much lower run anyhow).  Curious to see what everyone is hearing.  For the couple extra $ it was per fig I figred I'd bite the bullet and take a chance on the Tri-Logos this time around. (only once before did I ever jump on a new modern wave qucikly, so we'll see.

Any additinal noise on this line, pelase post..curious to see what othrs are hearing.
