I saw a few new figs at a local TRU today must say I was not terribly impressed. Mainly with new Vader and Luke. New tatoine floppy hat Luke is cool with soft goods cloak, but I had to pass. The face didn't look quite right and the case containing lightsabers and other stuff inside like the remote and things totally threw me off. the only removable part is Lukes/Anakins lightsaber all other items are molded in and painted including obi lightsaber hilt. Almost would have been worth the fig cost to get the acc. Vader while not a bad looking fig we have had a lot of really good vaders recently. His main failing is also with accessories, he comes with a bunch of junk which I think is supposed to be debris that he throws at Luke on Bespin, but I don't know. Han is a rehash nothing new to report there, but Hem Dazon is kind of cool and the holo figs now are red for some reason.

Funny how some people can't wait to buy these and other see them and just leave them behind. It's not a bad thing, just a observation. I want them all.

I'll probably just buy Hem Dazon and one Sandtrooper.

Always nice to hear about new stuff showing up! I'll be excited to find them when they get to Canada - in about 4 months. :cross-eye

I went to Frank and Sons today and saw the entire Tatooine Wave and I must say they look fabulous, both carded and uncarded. Hasbro is really doing a great job on their new saga line of figures. Of course they were all way over priced (but I found a guy who was selling that sandtrooper for 7 so I snagged that one) but it was really nice just to see what they look like and usually when they have 'em it means they should be showing up very soon down here in So. Cal if not already. Kinda just a heads up that they should be around and they look GRRRRRRRRRRRRRRREAT! :thumbsup:

I'm looking forward to picking up an R5, Hem Dazon, and yet another Sandtrooper. The POTJ Sandy knocked me for a loop it was so cool. The thought of an even better one makes me :D

For all of the complaining about Hasbro, I'm happier with the overall level of product than I have ever been!!!

Then I woke up. No really I did see them and they all look very cool. If there's one figure out of the wave to get it's R5! Damn he's cool.

I guess I will have to check my Wally World stock tomorrow morning. I haven't had a new figure fix in a while. Can't get enough of a Star Wars figure fix!!!!!

I hope this isn't old news but-

I found an R5-D4 tonight with a Red Kneeling Rebel Gunner holographic figure.

Yep. The Reds are out!

Good luck! :)

Yeah, from here on out all of the figures are gonna have red holos. Even the repacks of earlier figures are gonna be updated with the new red holos thus making the life of completists (myself NOT among them) that much tougher...and more expensive.

Which repack figure now with red holo?

Which repack figure now with red holo?The ones I can think of off the top of my head are Cody and Vader. I'm sure there'll be more as the waves come out but those two are in my mind right now.

The Snowtrooper is back out with red-holos.

Whenever was there a "red holo" in the films? I therefore decree that these trinkets be known henceforth as "stupid little red statues that are used to justify a higher price point."

I love them :love:

Every collector I know also has a serious love of these things. And they offer great play value for children.

*SIGH*

I am glad I am not a completist anymore, either- I just thought the kneeling Red Rebel Fleet Trooper looked pretty coll as opposed to the Blue one :)

I could only use so many blue ones!!! Now I can have red ones. I could even have a battle between my red ones and blue ones. I completely understand now. I love these little guys. I don't even know why they bother having those bigger, articulated figures on the other side of the package.

Stopped in Target on the way to work, right after they opened this morning, and found one Momaw Nadon, which I left. Was a little disappointed, since it seemes they had at least one case of these out yesterday (the one day this week I wasn't in there, but at least I know they're out. All I really want is Luke, R5-D4, and Hem Dazon, but I was surprised that the Han Solo figure wasn't there, seeing as how it's a re-pack of a figure I think we all have 10 times over already. Frustrated I'll be too busy to hunt this weekend, so I guess I'll have to wait til next week.

Just got back from Target, and it looked like they just put a case out. Got R5-D4, Floppy hat Luke, Hem Dazon, Garindan, and a Sandtrooper. Left Han, Vader, and another Sandtrooper on the pegs. Ironically, the one figure they didn't have was Momaw Nadon, the only one of this series they did have when I last checked there a week ago.
