I'm down to needing CW Saesee and Seripas for 2011.

Because Target decided to drop it, perhaps they are savy now and know that repacks dont move as fast as newly sculpted items?

Yes, the show was originally planned to run for 5 seasons.

So, if there are really only 5 more as-yet unrevealed figures for 2012, is it too much to hope they will all be new figures and just more stinking repacks?

It's nearly impossible to narrow it down, but here are the ones I would like to see just from last season:

Mother Talzin
Generic Nightsister
Trandoshan Hunter

I know, fat chance. They'll probably use those spaces for more ARF repacks, R2's, anakins and obi-wans.

I agree, those would all be great choices - Hasbro should make them to keep collectors AND kids engaged, they think kids only want core characters and clones, but thats simply not true.  My 5 year old nephew has asked me for a number of characters, most of which Hasbro has ignored.

Thats cool that you guys have had positive experiences, I have not though.  I talked to regular CS and a guy who is a manager / supervisor - he basically said if I wanted the order that it would be a backorder and there was no guarantee I'd ever get it.  The items I ordered were listed as 'in stock' for days after I ordered them, so they could have fulfilled the order if their operations werent slow and sub-par.

Starting tomorrow, two new coupon codes for Entertainment Earth -

Offer: $5 Off Your Order of $50 or More!
Code: 2011EE5

Offer: $10 Off Your Order of $90 or More!
Code: 2011EE10

Codes are valid November 1st through December 5th, 2011.

I would avoid Entertainment Earth like the plague - I rarely if ever have trouble with online retailers, but I just placed an order with them last week, and I have to say that their communication and customer service is lackluster at best.  The items I ordered apparently arent even in stock, yet it said they were when I ordered, however no one told me until I called them a week later.  I cant see myself ever ordering from them again.

Those HTS codes used to be great before they started selling all new figures by the case.  I havent ordered from them since...

These movies have been ignored for far too long - Hasbro should really try to get a few out.  Based on Hasbro comments and other rumors, 2012 could be filled with Ewoks though - I just hope it happens.

With assortments of repacks only, this line is going to die once again...

I think this set is a real value compared to the single packed Taun Taun, so I only bought the BP.  With such high prices, Hasbro can keep those 'collector targeted' items - I for one wont be buying them anymore...

I've only seen one Ponda on all my hunts, so a fellow collector on Yakface picked up spares of Bastila and the Hoth Rebel and sold them to me.  With distribution problems and bad case ratios, I really appreciate collectors like that.

The Dianoga was pretty cool, I bought one from a fellow collector because I had no interest in the figures from the two sets.  Hasbro could probably card it by itself and sell it as a basic figure.

Shame you didnt buy them and offer them up to help others - I've never seen a single one, let alone at $5...

Excuse me? You didn't actually just accuse me of being at fault for not spending money I didn't have to help people (read: you) out, did you? Because that would be a pretty undermining comment.

Wow, you sure got worked up over nothing - all I actually said was its a shame you didnt pick up spares to trade / sell to others.  Dont you often buy extra figures as trade bait?  To answer your question, I didnt want anything for myself - and I wouldnt ask you either way.

I just think its a shame when some collectors say things like, "I actually passed up the mini Y-wing a couple times at Target...once I got what I needed", when other people need the items.  I personally saw the Republic speeder or whatever its called for under $5 - so I bought one for my nephew, one for a fellow collector, and another for Toys For Tots. :)

A new Nexu and retooled Padme would be great for the deluxe line.

One of the problems I see is that collectors / kids might be getting bored with the line in general - I've yet to even see the mini Y-wing because the pegs at every store are loaded with pegwarmers.
