Wow, I suppose a new clone-armor Obi-Wan shouldn't exactly be thrilling, but the fact that he won't have a cape between his legs to keep him from riding a speeder bike is GREAT news!!

Yeah, I like the new sets as well.  Like Jeff mentioned, the hooded Dooku is pretty cool - and I like the Cody/Obi-Wan set (and others) as well.  Also, judging by the checklist and everything that came out yesterday, it looks like the only Cinema Scenes coming out next weekend are repacks of the Jabba/Death Star sets that were previously Target exclusives.  I'm glad others will have a chance to pick up the Jabba set now, since it seemed to go quite quickly the last time around.  Plus, I'm ok with some of the new sets waiting until later in the year with all the spending that could be done next weekend the way it is.

I want a Jabba set! I might have to add it to my 7/26 shopping list. :)

I haven't seen any other "leaks" of 7/26 so far, but our Super Target did have the repackaged GH sets (1x Jabba, 3x X-Wing) on the shelves this weekend.  I didn't even try to scan them or anything, but I thought they might have made it onto the shelves due to them not having new packaging and being former releases.

I saw them on Target shelves yesterday along with some 2-Packs (Shaak Ti, Aayla Secura, Slave Leia).

Noticed the two packs are back down to $5.99 on the pegs at Target.

Oooh...  GH Skiff! Very cool!

Looks like there might be a swampy Dagobah X-Wing in the background there too... :)

That Skiff is really cool, can't wait for that one.  Good eye on the Dagobah X-Wing there too, I think you're right.  To me, this line has really been fun the past couple of years now.  We're starting to get more vehicles this year, and a lot of things I never thought we'd see.  Neat stuff.

GH Dragonsnake = awesome!

Even though it appears to be just a repaint X-Wing, I'll definitely bite on that one too.

Sweet, thanks for posting that Jeff.  I'll bite on that one as well.  Really some nice stuff on the way in the GH line lately.

I can't wait to get the Rancor and have it sitting on my shelf with a Gamorrean Guard looking out of its mouth. :)

Galactic Heroes Snowspeeder on the way next year.  Sweet!  Looks like another X-Wing set on the way as well.  Who would have ever thought we'd get a Dodonna in the GH line?  Crazy.
