Picked up the Hound's Tooth, CW Y-Wing, and Sebulba's Podracer Titaniums at WM this afternoon.  They all came in the new black SW label packaging.  I'm not sure what else came with this release, but there was an extra Hound's Tooth, IG-2000, Green JSF w/Ring, V-Wing, and Z-95 Headhunter all in the same new packaging.

I found the same this morning at Target including Bob Johnson's X-Wing.  Why is Hasbro putting new labels on these things when they're getting axed?  Oh well...at least they weren't $8.19 or whatever that insane price was.  I was a little bummed as I know I won't be plucking these from the pegs for much longer.   :'(  love/hate

I bought the last one of these I'm likely to get until I figure I can afford to pick the whole line up...  I got the Hound's Tooth the other night, only because it's a favorite ship of mine and goes with good old Bossk and my mini-Bossk collection.

Really nice vehicle...  Reminds me why I love this line.  Shame Hasbro took a healthy dump on this once inexpensive and fun-to-collect sub-line.  They sure drilled this one into the ground though.

Didn't know you were a Bossk fan.   I've got a bootleg titanium hounds tooth.  I'll bring it to the next meeting and see if you want it.

In fact, I've got a bunch of bootlegs (falcon, xwing,etc) I picked up if anyone else is interested.  Some are metal, some are plastic, some are both, just like the real titans.  But these ones have wheels underneath.  I'll try and post pics later this week.

Picked up the black/blue AAT CW repaint today that I forgot about.  Glad to have this thing in my collection.  Just glad I didn't buy every other CW repaint that came out when the "movie" came out.

I picked up a lone Xanadu blood yesterday at Target (Cad Banes ship/ P-38 repaint) must have just missed the Hyena bomber.

Maybe this should be obvious but what's the Hyena Bomber?

Question on the Vulture Droid.  I just picked up the CW version that popped up at retail when the "movie" debuted.  Is this the same one that was released back in the day?  I have one on my list as the 18th Tite I picked up since this line started, but it's in storage so I've no clue what it looks like.   :-\

The Vulture droid that came out last year is painted differently than the first one. The most notable change is the seperatist emblem.

Nice pic Hasbro - the CW Y-Wing is backward.  And so is one of the Podracers.

A buddy of mine picked up John Branon's Red 4 at TRU for me.  For some reason, I could not find that one from the last wave locally at Target, WM, or TRU.

Picked up Hyena Droid, Anakins Podracer and Gold 5 at Wal-Mart yesterday.

Hyena is bit of a disapointment, actually smaller than Vulture and a lot more plastic. Podracer is very well done though. Gold 5, possibly the last of the Y-wing repaints, when compared to the CW Y-wing really shows how the sculpting philosophy has changed through the years with it's heftiness compared to CWs barely there vehicle.

Still no signs of the new wave in my neck of the woods which is pretty odd.  Stoopid marbles taking up my tite space!  I blame this on you!   >:( 

Anybody know how many Indy tites were released?  I found five for $10 this weekend at Kmart and would like to know if I have a complete set.
