New images have shown up of another new wave of Galactic Heroes:



I must say, I'm really impressed with Hasbro's investment in this line - we haven't really seen any repaints/rehashes for a while now.

Knock on wood.

Thanks for posting that ruiner, the whole lineup looks pretty good.  I'm surprised at how expansive this line has started to get, where we're getting more and more "background" type characters all the time.  Even the repeated figures, such as Luke and Vader here, have been changed up to make them different.  Looks nice.

Absolutely superb.  They all look great, especially the Royal Guard and Leia Boushh.  I'll be adding these to my collection for sure.

Yeah, that next wave looks quite nice, though the "fencing" poses on Luke and Darth seem a bit odd.  I hope that Leia comes with a Boushh helmet as well, and Han with a Carbonite slab.  That'd make this wave near perfect.

Now if only I could get that stupid Snowtrooper set outta the way first...  >:(

Exactly, but I need the whole damn wave.  TRU was my only option for GH since WM hasn't carried them for years, but now they've eliminated their pegs too.  I'm just hoping it's a lull in their ordering and it will change soon...  :-\

Not anymore.  Once you add it to your cart it says they are out of stock ::)

That sucks.  I didn't even try to add it because I've already got one.  Sorry about that. 

On an unrelated note - Promo CATWEB10 will give you 10% your entire order.  Not that special, but I finally picked up an Ultra MF and another 501st.

No worries.  And the rolly eyes were for HTS.com, not you.  I've seen that little trick from them a lot lately.  Add to cart, go to next page, remove from cart.  Aaargh.

Thanks to Toy Fair we now know the answer...

That Carbonite Slab is great and I am glad both Leia and Vader come with Helmets.   :)

This image isn't of newly announced figures, but it just reminds me that Hammerhead is the cutest damn figure.  Ever.  :D

Then you'll be happy to know that he's been spotted, in Texas:

It'll probably be another month or two till I see these new sets.  Distribution seemed like it was flowing very smoothly with all of the two packs until the Han/Luke stormie wave hit which started, what back in November?  The last wave was a nightmare for me to track down - especially that damned Hoth set.

Holy crap, already?  I haven't even found the Bespin wave yet!  I think it's time to break down and order them online.
