I updated JD's regular Galactic Heroes Checklist last night.  As a sign of how addicted I am to these, I also created a second list by individual figure, where you can see when a figure was originally released, then if it was repacked or repainted in a later Cinema Scene.

I grabbed the Battle of Hoth scene today, so will be updating those lists with the details of this and future Scenes as I'm able to get my hands on them.

I wish some Chinese seller would throw a ****load of Jar Jars and Qui Gons on ebay so I don't have to buy those repack sets at TRU...

I'm pretty much out of these.  There's a ton that are cool, but my daughter doesn't have any interest anymore and I don't feel like completely duplicating the regular Hasbro line.  I think they look great still and are a great little line, but not something I feel I need to own anymore.

I doubt anyone could have predicted the Galactic Hero line would become this extensive.

The newest wave (Luke/Yoda, Leia/Endor Soldier, etc.) is currently in stock over at HTS, for those interested.

Thanks for the head's up Brian.  I can cross those off my list now without having to scour Wal-Mart for them.  :)

That's exactly what I was thinking.  The less I have to go in WM, the better :).

I saw the new wave at Target yesterday.  I didn't buy them as I don't know if I want to continue this line.  Don't get me wrong, they're cool and all, but I don't have the room to display them and the few that were opened Aidan doesn't really play with.  Granted he hasn't watched Star Wars yet so maybe once he does he'll like them more.

I know the feeling.  This is a line they can continue for quite a while.  I got to make up my mind if I'm in it for the long haul.  I don't have any children yet, but handing them down gives me an excuse to keep collecting.  I don't have any room to display these since I've kept mind all carded.

I saw the latest wave of these at Target this past week.  No signs here of the Jabba set yet, hopefully it will be showing up soon.
