Jeff:
I guess by "Fan Favorite" they mean just re-shipping the bulk of Waves 4, 4.1, and 5 to the US accounts and then Waves 4 and 6 to the international accounts.  :P   

Was anyone really clamoring for more Bom Vimdin or Hoth Luke?   ???

Pete_Fett:
These will just be re-shipments right? It's not like they're changing the packaging up or anything are they?

Scott:
Yawn...like jeff said, just call this rereleasing old product.  I would have been more excited if the INC and ERG were in there
