Originally I had planned to just buy one or two of each case (this was back when only Wave 1 was being advertised at Ent Earth so it seemed that each case would be 2 of each new figure per wave...) With Wave 3 now being offered (though I think I ordered it on July 7th from them)

Here are the breakdowns and totals:
Wave 1

2x Han Solo,
3x Luke Skywalker,
2x Obi-Wan Kenobi
1x Princess Leia

Wave 1.5

3x Han Solo,
3x Ben Obi-Wan Kenobi
2x Princess Leia

Wave 2

2x Darth Vader - Empire Strikes Back (NEW),
2x Yoda - Empire Strikes Back (NEW),
2x Han Solo - A New Hope,
2x Luke Skywalker - A New Hope

Wave 2.5

1x Lando Calrissian - Empire Strikes Back (NEW)
1x C-3P0 - Empire Strikes Back (NEW),
1x Darth Vader - Empire Strikes Back,
1x Yoda - Empire Strikes Back,
1x Han Solo - A New Hope,
1x Luke Skywalker - A New Hope,
1x Obi-Wan Kenobi - A New Hope,
1x Princess Leia - A New Hope

Wave 3

2x Boba Fett - Return of the Jedi (NEW),
1x R2-D2 (NEW),
1x Chewbacca (NEW),
2x Stormtrooper (NEW),
1x Lando Calrissian - Empire Strikes Back,
1x Darth Vader - Empire Strikes Back

If you bought one of each case

8x Han Solo
6x Luke Skywalker
6x Obi Wan Kenobi
4x Pricness Leia
4x Darth Vader
3x Yoda
2x Lando
2x Boba Fett
2x Stormtrooper
1x Chewbacca
1x C-3P0
1x R2-D2

So I am going to be calling EE today and dropping more than half my orders. (sadly I've already paid shipping on a couple of them)

Looking at the patterns, I would assume we'll see a Wave 3.5 but I doubt the Stormtrooper or Chewbacca will see more than 2 figures a piece in it.  

Army building that Stormtrooper is gonna be tuff.  It just doesn't seem like they are being produced in equal numbers like Hasbro mentioned at the beginning of this whole thing.

Any thoughts or insights?

Watto's Junk Yard / Necessary Evils
« on: June 20, 2004, 10:10 AM »
I tried to make sure this wasn't a duplicate topic so if it is I apologize....

After spending the better part of yesterday cleaning out the garage, I came up with a point to ponder with my JediDefender buddies.....

What is your number 1 necessary evil?  I mean that one thing that annoys you to no end, but you have to have.

Maybe it was just the setting of where I came up with the idea, but here is mine....

Packing Peanuts...the little foam pellets that most people use to pack stuff when they ship it.  No matter how careful one is, they will always Spill, Fall out or otherwise escape from the package and since I order 90% of my figures online, then  I end up with a ton of these things. They don't Sweep up well, they have no other uses (for me).

Anybody else have one?

The Original Trilogy / Rogue Squadron Members Names in OT
« on: November 17, 2003, 10:03 PM »
What were the names of the Rogue Squadron Members that we know of during the OT era....

I know in ANH they were all designated "Red" but were they still the Rogues?  

I know the Books (the best series yet written) give us some new ones, but I really wanted to figure out who all was a Rogue between ANH (or shortly before) and Death Star II exploding...

Star Wars Action Figures / Hoth Soldier Possibilities
« on: November 14, 2003, 03:29 PM »
OK looking at the New Hoth Trooper Figure/Statuette, I was wondering if any of you have him and what the possibility of putting the new Hoth Luke's legs on him would be to make him LESS dynamic?

Or in the alternative, is Lukes Uniform something that could be painted/modified to make a decent Echo Base Tech/trooper?

The figures won't make it to the shelves here till about June of 2004....

I plan on Customizing the Hoth Stuff like crazy, I just don't know when they will be here in large enough numbers to justify it.

The Original Trilogy / Rebel Fleet in the OT
« on: November 10, 2003, 10:00 AM »
In ANH were the Fighters that were on Yavin the only Fighters in the ENTIRE Rebel Fleet?

Also does anybody have a guess/reasonable belief of what the size of the Rebel Fleet was during each movie?  And it's composition? (Frigates, cruisers, carriers etc)

I am reading "Empire" the Comic series and the Biggs story is getting me thinking.

Another Question is "Where did the Y_Wings come from?" We are told in a couple sources that the XWings are stolen  from InCom, but what about the Y-Wings...They still show up in Jedi so they have to coming from somewhere...

The Original Trilogy / Rebel Uniforms
« on: August 7, 2003, 09:13 PM »
Ok this will probably require some EU or West End Games Knowledge or just some good old guessing..

The uniform we see Lando Wearing as a General and the uniform we see Crix Madine wearing in ROTJ seems to be a "Duty" uniform.  Is that a Rebel Navy uniform or a Rebel Army Uniform.  Also does the Rebellion have different branches like the Empire does?

During the Trilogy we see Rebel Officers wearing the New Hope Khaki/Browns with belted tunics and caps or in the Capt. Antilles uni on the Tantive IV.

In ESB you can't really count the Uni's there because they all have on Extreme Weather Gear.

ROTJ we see the previously mentioned Madine/Lando Unis, the Fatigues worn by the Commando's, even some different uni's worn by members at the briefing.

I was just trying to figure out if the Rebels had the 4 required classes of Uniforms or not. Or were even structured to do so.  I am going to have to start reading more sources.  

I know by the Time the New Republic Rolls around they have Dress Uniforms that when described in the books sound Very Dissimilar to what Madine/Lando wore, leading me to believe that what they had on was Battle Dress and not "walking out" dress.

The Original Trilogy / A New Hope on TBS this week
« on: August 5, 2003, 07:28 PM »
A NEW HOPE is going to be on TBS this week.  I know we all have it in Several Forms on VHS (If you count Original Release, Cleaned UP Release, Special Edition Formatted and Special Edition WideScreen) and we won't talk about some of us "Older" guys who have or have had it on BETA or LaserDisc or are old enough to even know what those are...

But it is still cool to see it on TV....the other neat thing is except for Time there is NO reason that Censors would edit any part of it.

Check the listings, I think it is Sunday Night.

Modern Trading / Wave 15 "Extras" to Trade
« on: July 31, 2003, 06:40 PM »
I just got my "bent" card box from NewForce and I have some extras.  Keep in mind these are Openers so the cards are not in MINT condition.  Some of them are not that bad, but none are what "Carded" collectors look for.

Darth Vader, Throne Room Duel
Luke Skywalker, Throne Room Duel
R2-D2, Droid Factory
C3P0, Tatooine Ambush (this one got the Brunt of the Bent Box/Card
Chewbacca, Mynock Hunt


Loose Vintage in Decent Condition (I don't need fresh off the Card, but I don't want "been in the backyard since 78 either) Obviously you'd get a better than 1:1 ratio

(can be loose, but complete)

POTJ/SAGA Imperial Officers ANY
SAGA Rebel Fleet Trooper
POTJ Death Star Escape Han Solo
Wedge Antilles from the Pilot 3 Pack
Biker Scouts
POTF2 Endor Rebels
SAGA Endor Rebels
Anakin's Speeder

Email me or just reply here.
