I only picked up the 3 you picked up in the latest wave.  I think the X-Wing is a repackage, but I'm not 100% sure.

My local WM finally got the latest wave in.  All but the Hyena Bomber were present on the pegs.

You missed the boat on both of those from awhile back.  Sad to say, but don't expect to find them at retail.

I picked up the CW Y-Wing, OT Y-Wing, and Z-95...  I pick these up here and there mostly as a tool for customizing for the future...  The thing I found interesting though is that the OT and CW Y-Wings are clearly intended to be the same ship, sharing the same basic dimensions (though shorter engine nacels on the OT ship I believe).  Visually comparing though, they're pretty spot-on with one another.

I find it interesting as EU's being fudged to fit two different sizes in for the Y-Wing as being new/late models of the vessels. 

If this line had been cheaper, as it started, I'd have been so happy to collect them all.  It's a shame ultimately what Hasbro did with it, pricing it out of the realm of logic to keep buying it.   :'(  There was a pile of EU vessels to have dipped into, that will never see the light of day it seems.

I think their massive push with all of the CW repaints when the "movie" came out also had a lot to do with it to.  Those waves just sat and rotted for months on end and can still be found.

I just hope that WM and TRU keep up with the line before it gets axed.  Not that it will be easy to find new waves at those stores though.   :-\

The new tites look very impressive!  Frankly I'm shocked that Hasbro bothered showing them, but I'm not complaining.  Just hoping that WM's and TRU's are able to stock these.  Not sure if I want to start buying cases of these final waves online.   :-\

I'm interested in the Nebulon-B, other than that I might impulse buy one or two.  Sad to see the line go, but mostly because I like seeing Star Wars toys in stores.

I have a really bad feeling that that is going to be the only way to track these lasts handful down.

Glad Hasbro showed the new vehicles at the Con, and they have some nice details on them.  The Nebulon B frigate and the Malevolence looks great.  The closed door gunship looks cool too.  Hopefully, I'll be able to catch these at TRU or WM.

Took a little longer than I wanted but here's the pic of bootleg titans.

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.
