Well, with the shipping and conversion from Euros, my Wave 4 Legends case came to roughly $200, if he got them from Toy Palace, they probably cost him about the same for the CW case.

I think we'll still see the Yoda packaged stuff here in the US, so while I will admin I'm considering doing what McMetal did, I'm willing to wait until that Yoda look street date hits - wasn't it this week or next?

It came to around $200 with the shipping, current Euro exchange rate, etc. Pre-orders are not expected to be filled prior to 2/28, so that allows me a couple of weeks to try and confirm if these are ever really going to show up in the US or not. If so, I can always cancel my pre-order. So that makes me feel a little better at least.

I'd much rather have these in the US packaging without all the multilingual stuff on there, but it remains to be seen if that is even an option or not.

Hey Pete, yeah it was Toy Palace, I have always had good experiences with them on previous orders, mostly for other Clone Wars Euro-exclusives. You're right on with the case estimate too.

I know of at least 2 Targets locally that reset early (2/11 is the actual street date) but neither of them put out any new figures, nor even any restocks of Maul packaged CW stuff. Nor have I seen any other reports from around the 'net of people finding new figures post-reset. So while I am hopeful we see these too, there don't seem to have been an early sightings yet.

Sucks to hear that this wave will not be coming out in the U.S.  But I only wanted the 501st Trooper and the new Rex; and it looks like Rex is coming out in the Mission Series 2-pack later in the year.  So, it's not a big loss.  I may track down that 501st Trooper online - assuming I can find him in the show somewhere.  I'm not going to make the effort if his paint apps are just a Hasbro designer having fun with the design.

They were on last week's episode actually, pictured next to Rex, but in darkness so hard to make out the coloration.

I still wish someone could somehow confirm if any of these figures were made in US packaging or not. I still think these could really be hard to come by on the aftermarket otherwise.

A lot of people are speculating that the animated Rex and the BD pictured with the Mission Series figures at Toy Fair were just place holders and different versions will be released eventually. Guess we'll have to wait and see...

Well, that settles that.  Thanks for the information.  I guess I'll be hunting this one down on the secondary market.

OMG, Jayson where did you pull that slide? This is EXACTLY the kind of info I am going to need for customizing purposes. Awesome info, hope there are more where that came from!

That's from the concept art slideshows that StarWars.com posts for the episodes.

They pretty much do one for each episode and they are filled with sketches or layouts for the various characters in the episode.  Definitely a treasure-trove of info in there for all the clone/droids decos over the years.

Jeff - what's your perspective on the CW and Movie Heroes lines potentially being limited to overseas shipments?  We have had conflicting reports from other sites and you typically have a good sense for Hasbro's approach.  What do you think the chances are of finding these in US eventually?

I have no idea really. 

If I had to choose between the conflicting reports, I'd lean towards Mike/GH over JTA.  I believe the chances are pretty bad of them hitting as basic figures anytime soon.  There are no pre-orders at any US etailer and we've never even see US carded samples pop-up.  Everything that has hit so far has been OUS packaging. 

I held out hope when Target did not clearance the DPCIs yet, but it's mid-February.  If we were going to see them, I think they'd be here by now.  Or at least "here" enough for early US cases to have hit eBay by now.

That's what I figure too...  These would've hit with the reset and new stuff like the Class I's and II's.  It's also fairly uncharted territory though.  Never seen things in this much of a state of flux in the modern line, ever.

Well, I got my shipping notice today from Toy Palace, these guys are on their way to me now. Guess they arrived a tad earlier than the 2/28 estimated date. So yeah, the US ones will probably show up at TJ Maxx or Marshall's any day now.  ::)

Sure wish I could have gotten 2 Jetpack clones with this case assortment. But hey, we all need more Obis and Anis let's face it.  :P

I'm gonna hold out hope that they are still on their way...

If we confirmation that they're not, well - then I'll probably get a case of both the CW and MH 2013 waves just to have MOC sets.

Hasbro keeps saying these two lines are not for me. If that's the case, I don't know how to explain why I would have gladly scooped up multiples of the Exploding Battledroid (both tan and red versions) and the Jet Pack Clonetrooper had they been available at retail....
