Wave 2 of the Tumblers with Figure are due out in Late March according to Target. Not sure if it will be two new sets or one new one with a repack.


So has anyone seen wave 2??  Thanks to Todd I will finally have wave one.   :)

I've only seen two. I didn't pick them up because they were too pricy...  :o

I like these.  Have the first two thus far and was most pleased to see that "A New Hope" does not adorn the Obi glass.  Most pleasing.

Heads Up!

A good friend of mine picked up the cups from wave two today...

He grabbed both Anakin and Hoth Luke Pilot cups sets today at a Target near Madison, Wisconsin (I don't know exactly which one because he didn't say and I don't know Madison taht well anyway).

The case included 2x Anakin and 2x Luke (no Obi-Wan or Maul).

So, I guess they are out there now...

I'm not really too hot over these.  If they included harder to get figures I might be, or if they came with some sort of exlusive items perhaps.  But as it is, they are very boring to me. :-\

Good news. The cups are actually cool. The figures are not. But I don't see that many of Wave 1 sitting around here, so I'm not going to gamble on any clearance sales.

My wife actually thinks that these are cool...while I don't have any...Come to think of it, that's probably why she thinks that they are cool...

No sign of the second wave around here yet either, but the Luke glass is the one I have been looking forward to the most.  I really like these too, but I was a big fan of the Burger King glasses when I was a kid too, so that might be part of it.  $9.99 still seems a little steep to me, especially with a repacked figure.  I haven't picked up the Maul glass yet, although I have seen it several times, but I haven't decided if I'm going to get the prequel ones or not.  I just know that if later in the year they "surprise" us with an Episode III glass and figure, I'll have to get it, then I will want the ones from I and II as well, to have the whole set.  For now, only Obi and his glass are on my shelves here.  If they go on clearance I'd snatch up Maul though.

Yeah, more of these don't exactly seem the best idea.  An Episode 3 cup would be nice.  Is that still coming?

Oh, second wave. Let's buy more of these and pass on the Sandcrawler.

Choke.

It seems quite stupid to reissue these older, now inferior figures around the same time Hasbro is going to issue the greatest Star Wars figures ever.

E2 and E5 are out now, E6 (Leia) is suppose to be released by the end of summer.  I don't know why they just didn't send them out all at once and who are they going to pack with Leia(and will end up being the ultimate shelf warmer)??
