Picked up a few of the latest titaniums at a local Target for $6.99:  V-19 Torrent, Republic Tank, and Shadow Speeder.  Still need to find the other 3 repaints.

There weren't any pictures at Toy Fair revealing new Titaniums.  May be they'll show some off at Comic Con?

I actually hope the line gets nixxed.  I've been collecting tites since the beginning, but I'm tired of the price increases and all of the repaints.  Plus there's not much left to make from the movies and I don't really care to have Sy Snootles Landing Craft or ICM guy's hovercraft.

That's not a bad idea, but I don't think it's going to happen.  That would cut my costs and save me the time to track the new ones down.  ;)  If Hasbro was planning to drop this line, they might have hinted that in their TF presentation (like they did with 2 Inch Unleashed), but they didn't...

I couldn't disagree with you guys more. I love this line. I agree the repaints are annoying, but then don't buy them (Not that I should be telling people not to cave on things since I do all the time in most of the basic fig stuff). Don't buy AT-TE repaint 34, but to get things like the Death Star, Mon Calamari ships, Trade Federation ships, things that are way to big or not necessarily well known enough to make a 3 3/4" version of. I love it. Please don't take this from me Hasbro.

I love the Titanium line as well but don't collect it due to price...  To me the repaints are a necessity, as with the basic 3.75" figure line, or $20 vehicles, or whatnot.  The beef I have is pricehikes that just go above and beyond.  That's an issue with all SW products these days though, as Hasbro latches onto any excuse to jack prices...

If Titaniums were $5, I'd probably still collect.  At least the OT ships anyway.

For me though, pricehikes have killed this line as something I can justify.

Can someone tell me the difference between the repaints of the AT-TE and V-Wing in wave 6 compared to the prior release?

For the AT-TE, is the only difference between the CWs release and the wave 6 release the gold paint on the main canon turret?  As for the V-Wing, I haven't seen that one around, so I don't know what the difference is.

When I compared the two AT-TEs I didn't see any difference other than that gold paint. However, I can't guarantee there aren't others (which means I probably shouldn't have tried to answer your question since I didn't really add anything new).

I found some of the latest Titaniums at both WM and Target this morning:

Republic Attack Shuttle
Neimodian Shuttle
Anakins Jedi Starfighter w/Hyperspace Ring
Obi-Wan's Jedi Starfighter
ARC-170 w/Wampa Nose Art
Gold Leader Y-Wing

Also picked up Anakin's CW JSF and the Eliptic Evader TIE Fighter I missed from Wave 5.  Still looking for the others in that wave.

These all came in the slightly modified bubble with larger "Star Wars" sticker stuck on flat. Also, I think of the ones I picked up today, the JSF w/Ring is one of the heaviest Titaniums and the Neimodian shuttle has to be one of the lightest of late. The weight of the JSF w/Ring surprised me when I lifted it off the pegs especially since many of the recent ones are mostly plastic.

Found a Twilight on the way home from work today and I am a tad colorblind, but I swear it's blue or purple and the toon version looks grey to me.  Anywho....

I'm still trying to find the damned Virago.  Can't find that thing for the life of me.  This is the first time I've not found an entire wave in one swoop.  Stooopid case revisions.   >:(

Luckily I've been paying below $7 at the random Targets and WMs I've been finding these at which is still insane considering HW cars are 99 cents, plus the fact that most of these things are mostly plastic nowadays.

$8.19   ???   WTF
