picked up the new 3 " ships tonite at WM
they put out 2 cases
got X2 TH tie
      x1 of the other 3 types

ONLY 1 TH TIE TO A CASE..YIKES!!!! :o

They are Awesome!!! This IS the best wave by far IMO. Geez I MAY HAVE to go back and get more to set up around my desk at work!!!

PS...Keeping you in mind Matt and the rest of the JDers, I will gobble all the TH's I see in stores ;)

And, Matt( not that the whole first wave aren't like TH status already or anything!) ::)

Found the Slave 1, White TIE and ROTS Droid Fighter today at a MD Walmart.   :)

 

I also picked up the Turbo Tank, Republic Attack Cruiser (only had 1...is it the wave?) and the ARC-170 and Tri-Fighter Ultras.

What The? Went to my local Vacaville Ca WM tonite and got the New NEW titanium 3inch series got X1 death star, x2 slave one, x1 vulture droid
and of course x2 TH ties ;)

I thought these newer ships weren't supposed to be out yet? After getting the first four I didnt know there would be 3 more so soon ??? I think I missed something in this earlier wave since some lucky fella got to the case first and got stuff ::)

I must say that I'm a little dissapointed due to the lack of support the new titanium packages have on the back as they're lacking additional material near the hook (at least at my area Targets - MN, can't seem to find these at Wal-Mart of course)  Most of the ones I found were all bent up by the hook.

Someday I will open these things (amongst all other carded things I own) but until then....

what I hate is that the stores never separate the pegs enough so you always seem to find some lazy employee who "forces" them to fit in a smaller case ruining the card :(
instead of separating the pegs more. This is why I like to hit the stores when they're being stocked since you can get them case-fresh this way.

* unfortunately I've only seen these hitting in 1 or 2 cases per store/wave increments- gosh I hope my luck doesn't run out in getting them.

OK, I think I'm getting a little confused here...

Wave 4 was supposedly going to consist of the following:
Battle Damaged Falcon
Anakin's Jedi Starfigher
Queen's Naboo Royal Starship
Wookiee Flyer

So this wave never hit, right?  Or at least not domestically.  Or am I just brainfarting right now?  RS reported that they'd been found in Australia all the way back in October, but I sure as hell have never seen them around here...

I've found the "Treasure Hunt" Tie Fighter once now, and have seen a TON of the regular wave consisting of the Speeder Bike with Scout, Clone Turbo Tank, and Republic Attack Cruiser.  Not 1 per case in the allotments I saw, but perhaps 3 per case.

But I have NOT seen the following wave yet (or is it technically the same wave?) with the Vulture Droid Fighter, Death Star (1 or 2?), and Jango's Slave 1.  Sounds like you guys have though, so that's next on my hit list.

RS listed all this stuff for the rest of the line (including the BG and SG lines mixed in):

Quote
3inch Speeder bike w/trooper
3inch Jedi Attack cruiser
3inch Clone Tank
3inch TIE fighter (chase)

3inch Clone Tank?
3inch Death Star
3inch Slave 1 Jango Fett
3inch Federation Droid Fighter


Vehicle Imperial Shuttle
Vehicle Darth Vader’s TIE fighter
Vehicle AT-AT
Vehicle Republic Gunship

Die-Cast Wookiee Helicopter
Die-Cast Jedi Starfighter
Die-Cast Royal Starship
Die-Cast Battle Ravaged Millenium Falcon

Die-Cast Silver Slave 1 (limited edition)
Vehicle Jedi starfighter
Vehicle Sith Infiltrator
Vehicle Droid Tank

3Inch 1978 Cylon Raider vehicle
3Inch 2004 Scout ship vehicle
3Inch 1978 Viper vehicle

3Inch Titanium LTD E3 Millenium Falcon
3Inch Luke Skywalker’s Speeder Bike
3Inch Republic Cruiser

3Inch A-Wing EP6
3Inch Executor Star Destroyer EP5
3Inch Sandcrawler

3Inch BG 04 Colonial 1
3Inch BG 04 Raptor
3Inch BG 04 Viper MK VII
3Inch SG Stargate with Stand
3Inch SG Death Glider ship

3Inch Titanium LTD Purple (?)
3Inch Leia Organa’s Speeder Bike
3Inch TIE Interceptor
3Inch B-Wing

No idea what the hell's the difference between "vehicle", "Die-Cast", and "3Inch"...  Especially considering they've got the larger Ultra line listed seperately.  Regardless, it looks like we've got a lot to look forward to with this cool little line!

LUCKY ME! Today picked up the newest 5 pack the one that has the OT ships including raw metal falcon at Wal Mart?!

The store had only 2 but dumb me only grabbed one. This is significant since the lady at the counter said it(the sku) was not coming up as loaded in the system. So she ran to the toys to do a price check and they couldn't determine anything so she rang it up as "star wars toy" 10$!!!!!

I know it wouldn't have worked twice so I didn't grab the other :( ::)

So, kind of a dumb/lucky incident overall I guess.
This is definately the set to get for completists who never got the first wave(matt, PM sent)- the xwing and tie are exactly the same paint as the original wave and you get a chromed falcon- the ywing looks good! 

EDIT: The Xwing is not the same paint apps as wave 1 Titanium, it has yellow added as well

LTD purple??! I know , What IS that?

Answer: No, the Jango slave 1 and vulture droid come 3 to a case in the newest case assortment and are not called treasure hunt in the Stores computers or on your receipt (ex: WalMart)

that's the first case assortment 8)
more folks appear to be looking for that one since the Jedi Attack Cruiser (not republic gunship ;)) didn't get rereleased in the 2nd wave

the second looks like this-

 X1 tie
 x3 jango
 x3 death star(the original)
 x3 trade federation droid fighter(vulture droid)
 x1 turbo tank(refresher from last wave)
 x1 speeder bike( refresher from last wave)

actually I'm wrong now too as it looks like they changed the earlier name of jedi attack cruiser to republic attack cruiser at
the time of production ???

Can I get a "Hoorah" for the Republic Attack Cruiser?  That thing is SO cool!  I have 3; one on my bedside table, one downstairs by the TV and one on my desk at work "flying" by the Diecast Death Star. :D

Mystery Award =  3Inch Titanium LTD Purple ?????


GOT IT! I think this "purple ship" will be Mace Windu's jedi starfighter(from clone wars)
and it will be a chase!

I also suspect there will be 2 treasure hunts total the ?purple?(possibly mace's ship?) and the tie(white).

I think the others on the list I saw that "hasbro apparently sent to france posted by RS news ::)" are just 5 packs that say "limited mill. falcon"(like the 5 pack at retail now) and the other is probably a raw metal slave 1 5 pack(since it lists limited next to that one as well)

It does say limited edition on the raw metal 5 packs next to the raw metal ship.

so all in all possibly 4 limited/treasure hunts this year. If so I got 2 down 2 to go. Hopefully Hasbro will clear this up soon with a press release.

* for the folks out there that HAVE opened their 2006 titaniums did the info packet inside list the 2006 line?
