A lot is riding on Han for me, for this wave.  Or should I say Han better be able to ride on a lot? 

We got a blue coat that can ride a Taun-Taun...  I hope they go all out on a brown coat Han Taun-Taun figure though because that's a hole I feel is really glaring in my collection at this point.  That Blue Coat one from Target blows.  He'll go right to my fodder pile if this new one is everything I hope it is.

I'll be shocked if we get an all-new sculpt.  I hope this one has at least hood up and down headsculpts as well.  Must-haves for this character.

With all the rumors about the 12-to-36 potential figures coming this Fall, I'm not really sure on who all will end up in this wave now. 

Looks like RS has some early carded shots of part of the wave... 

#01 R5-G19
#02 Luke Skywalker (Wampa'd Face)
#03 Darth Vader [repack]
#04 Darth Malgus [repack]
#05 Starkiller (Galen Mark) [repack]
#06 Yoda (Dagobah) [repack]

No sign of the Hoth Han or Dagobah Vader that were rumored pre-toy Fair...  yet.

No doubt we're going to see more revealed at the Hasbro panel.  So far this is a lot of the same stuff we saw at Toy Fair, no?  Although I think the Vader may be a little different, since they're passing this one off as a ROTS version.  It's definitely not the TESB version that came in TBS wave 1.

It's a repack of the ROTS Vader from Wave 5.  Easy to forget since everyone was so much more excited for SnowSpeeder Wedge, NOT Doallyn Skiff Guard, and Ree-Yees.  ;)

Like that R5 paintjob.  That thing sticks out and looks good to me. 

Black Series cards are turd, no matter what way you slice it.  I thought for a while, "Eh, they're unique and different", but nah...  They're turd.

Ah.  The one that has barely hit anywhere other than online retail?  Figures.

Did they pre-sell out or take it down for another reason?

I jumped over to EE and checked my pre-order status = "Off Web - September 2014"

Not a good sign...   Not sure if they pulled it because they over-sold or if it's getting cancelled.   :-\

Thanks Jeff for the insight (both in this thread and the Wave 5 one)

It's actually getting quite difficult to keep track of everything that's going on - it couldn't be more obvious to me that they are just in absolute disarray over at Hasbro with how to handle this line.

Wouldn't it just be easier for Hasbro to just sell this stuff at retail like the old days?

You'd think but just looking around here I wonder if retail is where people are buying this stuff. Cases of 6 inch BS Stormtroopers, Fetts, Biker Scouts and Jabbas have been lingering since the reset.

Yeah I think what's left of collectors prop up this end of things online pretty much...  I know I only check the toy aisles when I'm in stores for other things.  And even then I do a lot of shopping on Amazon now.

I'm mostly buying on Amazon at this point...  Just easier.  I see stuff at retail and it's fun to walk away from it too.  Liberating.  The only place I've bought figures in the last year was actually K-Mart.  They were the only ones stocking TBS 4".  I've seen all 3 waves in some abundance, and so far nobody's put out 4 here yet.
