This poster is going to drive me nuts as it has all of those 'exclusive' cinema pack figures on it that I refuse to pay $25 for (see Hoth Leia in a box of repacks).

Good news for those still looking for the TRU Cinema Packs - they are still shipping as I found both the Hoth and Naboo sets over the weekend.

Prices went up - $25.79.

Is there a checklist somewhere of all the Galactic Heroes figures.  I'm trying "figure" out which ones I'm still missing.

I've been creating a second GH checklist that lists every new, repack, repaint, and retool version of each figure and vehicle.  Let me know if anyone finds any discrepancies.

Alphabetical By Individual Figure

Have I mentioned I'm addicted to these?  :P

I have a Darth Tater backpack hero, not sure if you want to add that to the list though.

It would probably fit in this list better than anywhere else.  Thanks Dan.

Anybody else super fired up for Galactic Heroes at Toy Fair?  It sounds like we'll be getting a full 2008 reveal (like last year's) - and I'm especially pumped to see what all these "new" ships are going to be.

Yes, I'm more excited about the GH plans than I am the basic figure lineup. 

It's too bad the reissue of the Falcon is going to be WM only as I'd like to find out the SRP. 

Regardless, it will be interesting and I hope they don't reveal the whole 2008 lineup as it's nice to have some surprises throughout the year.

From a pre Toy Fair press release:

Quote
Star Wars Clone Wars Galactic Heroes Path Games (Assortment of 3 games)
(Approximate Retail Price: $14.99; Recommended Age: 5 & up; Available: October 2008; Players: 1 to 2)

Based on the upcoming animated series, The Clone Wars, players use battling dice and cards to navigate a 3-D game board with a character from the series. Two Galactic Hero Action Figures are included in each game. Advanced rules are included for older players. An assortment of three games is available, each sold separately.

Huh.  Based on no further evidence whatsoever... I'm going to say this is awesome.  That is provisional, however.  If "assortment of three games"  means each has 2 (or one ::)) exclusive figure(s) locked inside $15 packaging....

I'm just going to assume this is cool news.

Not me.  I'm growing tired of dropping $20 for sets that only have one or two new figures.

I'm not quite sure what to think of that info.  Hopefully Toy Fair can clarify this for us.

And I'll join you guys in looking forward to what's going to be revealed in New York.  Weren't there supposed to be something like 28 2-packs released this year?  I assume that number includes the number of repacks they do each year, but that should still leave a number of new figures yet to be revealed.  8)
