These things are just now starting to pull at my collecting strings.  Sigh.  I did not realize there were so many made already.  I guess I mainly want these because I loved the vintage die-cast ships.  Plus, it's the only way we will get some vehicles made in toy form and for a decent price.

Looks like Scum beat us again.  Someone there found the Ep3 Falcon, Luke Speeder, and Republic Cruiser.

I've seen the Luke Speeder several times now, but only at various TRUs.  Found one ROTS Falcon, but oddly enough, zero Republic Cruisers so far.  Anyone seen these at WM or Target yet?

Can someone remind me what was in the most recent WM 5-pack that hit a couple months ago?  Jon mentioned the Shuttle was one of them, but what were the others?  What was the Silver one - a Death Star?  EDIT:  Found it:

Last  night  I  picked  up  the  New  Titanium  Gift  set  with  Raw  metal  Death  Star,  Vaders  Tie,  AT-AT,  Star  Destroyer  and  Imperial  shuttle  at  Superwalmart  Palmdale.

I don't think I've seen any of these sets yet, which is odd considering the others usually sit en masse at all the WMs around here.  Jon, they still have any left out your way?  If so, I may seek some assistance with it soon...

So is the A-Wing, Executor, and Sandcrawler that Mike mentioned below what's coming in the next wave?

I found my Republic Cruiser with the rest of the wave a few weeks back at Target.

I never once saw the Raw Metal DS Giftset at retail WM, but luckily a nice lil "bird" helped me out with that set at our Hooters meet.

Scratch that comment.  I was driving back to L.A. from Orange County yesterday, and found some of these Death Star 5-packs at the Anaheim Walmart, so I snagged one (for the full $19.99 price).  Nabbed the Titanium Series display box that they came in too, so that was cool.  Even more cool, was that I stopped at another WM 10 minutes after that, and they had a ton of these 5-packs, all marked down to a paltry $9.77, so I picked up another, and returned it on my first receipt.  These rehashes are much more stomachable when they're at half price...  ;)

Ditto for me, but at Target today.  Looks like they've officially hit everywhere now.  Plenty more to come from this line too, based on what was shown down at Comic Con last week.  I didn't count, but they must've had an additional 15 on tap for the the coming months.  I asked Hasbro guys what they'd be doing when they ran out of choices to make (and repaint), which appears to be pretty soon, and they siad there's a good chance the line would expand further into the realm of EU, as well as gaming.  So it looks like this line is far from over, which considering their smaller size and affordable cost, is a pretty cool thing, I think.

Looking at the front page of the next 8 repaints...I can kinda understand 7 of them (sorta), but when was there ever a blue Naboo Fighter??  I assume in EU, but Hasbro has yet to introduce an EU vehicle in this line as of yet.

I think the blue Naboo fighter is in some video game.  I could be wrong however.

Yup. It was in the EP1 Battle for Naboo N64 game.

I really don't follow this line nearly as much as I'd like to but I do pick up all the Battlestar Galactica items. I'm not sure if this even news or not: I  found the Colonial One (BGS) tonight from Wave 10 R2. Unfortunately for me I missed the Raptor and the new Viper.

I guess I have to wait through a tireless period of up and coming repaints until new sculpts are released (wave 14).

the only ones that interest me through here(waves 11,12,13) are the CW arc170 and the 'added weaponry' droid tri fighter.

Projected by EE december's wave 14 has some cool new sculpts sans the fricken' ewok limited one. I think they made the Ewok a 'limited' piece obviously due to the somewhat 'limited' stature of the insignificant little shitstain :P

Purty!!  I love the Titanium line...Looks like you have some work to do with your BSG and TF collection though  ;)

I'm a strict carded collector and have only bought an extra of the Imperial Shuttle (my fav) to display loose at work.
