I keep seeing w1 & w2 day after day after day, but I'm just not sure I'm going to give in on all of these repaints.  I can see one or two in a wave of new molds, but 1 new mold and all these repaints?  It's going to be a very painful purchase if I decide to go through with it.   :-\

Pretty!  It has been a long time coming for some new molds.

Please don't tell me there's 4 more repaints in this wave.   ::)

This is actually a fantastic wave. Both the Twi'leck Nose Art ARC-170 & Republic Gunship now have the actual Twi'leck painted on the nose!

I appreciate the photos   ;)   but it just looks like a bunch of scribbling to me.  Weren't these supposed to be painted on the CW ones that just got repainted?  I've said it before, but these repaints are getting out of hand IMO, especially with how quickly they're spitting them out now.

The photos are a bit blurry and it's so tiny, that it's hard to see anyway, but you can make out the little blue Twi'lecks on the sides of the nose if you look real hard. These ships are tiny to begin with, so it doesn't help that the nose art is even smaller.

I don't know what was "supposed" to happen with the first wave, but these ships were only released in the First Day of Issue chrome stickers and they were painted differently. The ARC-170 looks to be almost the exact same, but the Republic Gunship has a major difference in paint.

I found wave 3 yesterday at Wal-Mart, passed on the AT-AP, is it different in this wave? I assumed the ARC-170 was the same as as the earlier one so I passed, gotta go back and check now.

Pretty sure there's slight variations on every single one.

Stopped off at Target this evening and saw the Cloud Car, Sandspeeder, and green Y-Wing on the pegs.

That's all I've been seeing for the past three months.

I'm strongly considering getting into this line, but the pegs here are currently clogged with AT-APs.

This is the first I've seen of these at Target.  I still have not seen the Sandspeeder or Wedge's Red 2 X-Wing.

My bad.  I sometimes forget that I live in the state of Target.   

PM me if you need some help.   ;)

I love this line because its nice to be able to get vehicles where scale doesn't matter. But they are so hit and miss. I read someone finds a new wave 3 weeks ago and then never hear of them being seen again until 3 months later. Quite frustrating.
