I hadn't given much thought to the cups lately, but now that some time has elapsed since I was actively searching for these, I've noticed something around here - the Targets either have tons of Obi/Maul, non at all, or Leia only. There was a window where I saw the Luke/Anakin cups for solid, but they didn't linger too long, and haven't been seen (at least by me) for some time.

And whatever happened to that rumor of a 6th cup?

i think the rumor was that the 6th cup would be kinda like an episode 3 preview figure or something. probably not available until the end of the year, if at all.

The rumor says the 6th cup is Darth Vader of Ep3 :D

New cups on the front page.  What a joke.  Target glasses are major shelf warmers.

Note that the original report said there would be 6 total...Greedo, Luke and Darth Vader are also rumored at some point.  Perhaps Vader will be the Episode III cup everyone is asking for

Nice scoop Jeff! ;D

I hope they choke on these because they chose this exclusive over the Sandcrawler.

Nice news scoop guys!  I know a lot of people aren't big fans of these, and they do seem to shelfwarm rather nicely...but I kind of like these, just for the fact of the glasses themselves.  For some reason I've always just liked those as collectibles, the figures they can keep for all I care (and drop the price :P).  Plus, these represent three of my favorite SW characters...so I definitely want to pick these up if they come out/show up around here.

On a side note...how many of you have been buying these?  If so, have you been buying them all?  So far, I've just picked up the OT sets (although still missing the Luke set).  I was tempted to get the PT ones too (just Maul has shown), just to have the "complete set"...and plus, I know if the rumored Episode III Vader w/glass is true, I'd want that one...and thus...all of them :).

[sarcasm] Also...it is good to see that we'll finally have a chance to get that Commtech Han Solo at retail [/sarcasm] :)

I like the glasses, but the figures themselves... ugh.

You're right Brian...

CT Han (Cantina)
2003 Gold Stripe Card
2004 Hall of Fame Card
2004 OTC Card
OTC Falcon pack-in
Cup set pack-in

Uh... ok.  We get it.  It's a nice figure!  Move on Hasbro!

Nice nice scoop there.

I really like the glasses so more is fine, but man, cut me some slack on the rehash figures! At least a little repaint action to not feel completely burned.

Since this will give us 2 cups per movie, they technically owe us 2 Ep3 cups/figures. How are they going to rehash figures that aren't out yet?  ??? ::)

Vader, 3PO, R2, or Chewie they could fit in there somehow I'm sure. ::)

Just a thought...

Ep3 re-hash #1 - Vader?
Ep3 re-hash #2 - Palpatine/Emperor/Sidious?

Might be easy enough to do.  Use MotDS Vader for one cup, then use Saga Emperor or Ep1 Sidious for the other cup.  No muss/no muss for Hasbro!

My question...why not give us 300th Fett, VOTC Han and OTC or VOTC Yoda? >:(

I'll get that Yoda cup, might be the only one I do pick up

Updated my earlier post, in case of really spoiler sensitive readers...sorry for not doing that earlier.
