Yikes.  Maybe the kiddos will like that, and if they do, that's cool with me.  Otherwise, if this is the future of the GH line, I don't know if it will hold on with collectors.  If they are going to do ships, why not go ahead and do a TIE Fighter, Slave 1, etc.?

Kit and Mace (don't ask me why the Nitko is in there)



Is it me or does Mace look stoned?!?!?!
The problem with America is stupidity I'm not saying there should be a capital punishment for stupidity, but why don't we just take the safety labels off of everything and let the problem solve itself

Galactic Hunter has larger, clearer pics of this second wave of ROTS Galactic Heroes at the linky.  Looking forward to these, and I hope Hasbro makes a Clone in that color/deco as well.

I think that Dune-Wing ship is a lame attempt of making SW = Transformers, but hey, it will probaly sell to some of the kiddies.

In fact, my nephew might actually like that dune buggy thingymajob. He is really into his Playskool "GoBots" and transformers right now, that is probably exactly the kind of thing he'd get a kick out of (SW canon be damned  :P).

Mace appears to be a rehash.

They can stop w/ re-releasing R2... Why not put two of the Super Battle Droids in a pack instead of putting R2 back in?
Granted the X-Wing R2 is straight legged to fit in, but we just got R2 w/ Tatooine Luke...
Or they could have put in a regular battle droid as ours was lost at the local zoo... 
You are starting to damage my calm.

I was surprised to find this next wave of GH at Walmart during Midnight Madness.  They seemed to have one box full of them, so I picked up one each of the Chewie/Clone, Kit/Mace, R2/SBD sets.  I didn't think they would be out quite yet.  I didn't see these anywhere else this weekend, but saw TONS of the first wave.  In fact, at our Wal-Mart's tent sale, they had a display that had to have at least 100 of the Anakin/Dooku, Obi/Grievous, Yoda/Palps sets.  I think they might end up swimming in these things for awhile, although they always seem to sell like hotcakes around here.

I saw the signs of this wave (the OT sets with the RotS packaging) at a few stores, but none of the new sets anywhere.  I wasn't really expecting them to be out so soon, I was thinking next month...

Guess I will have to add them to the official "find this stuff" list.

Just found this wave at K-Mart.  There were at least 6 sets.  All are new except Mace which looks to be from the Reek set.  Chewie is also the same except with a different weapon.  Fisto is the best of the three. 

Hope we get some more OT versions of these suckers.  A Greedo, Jabba and Tie Fighter are my wish list.
