I guess I'll need to get a new screwdriver. I have one that is long enough, but can't fit in the hole. The one that does fit is too short.

I opened all six of the this style of Ultra that I have a couple days ago to make more room on the shelf they were on. They look nice in the display case, so I'm in no hurry to disconnect them from their bases.

I found the V Wing, Arc 170 repaint, Snow Turbo Tank, Obi Wan and the B Wing.

Missed the two Plo Koon Jedi starfighters but oh well (one in each case). The Imperial Attack Cruiser has darker lines on it now as well.

I was lucky enough to find this entire wave earlier this evening at wal-mart along with some new transformers movie toys (actual deluxes, not the proto-forms). Only picked up the new purple JSF and V-wing. I really like plo koon's jsf, the paint is alot thicker than obi's Episode II jsf so it gives it a very different feel. Love the blacked-out cockpit. I was very disappointed with the v-wing. I'm not a big fan of the design in general, but I thought the toy might change my mind. It didn't. Also picked up 2 more classic raiders and was pleased to see that the paint jobs on the newer ones are even nicer than the first 4 I acquired. If anyone needs help findind anything from this wave let me know, I have a feeling those b-wings, turbo tanks, arcs, and BD JSFs will be there a while.

Snagged a Snow-Covered Turbo Tank and another classic Cylon myself 2 days ago at Wal-Mart in Helena, MT.

Dang 'cause they didn't have anything else :(

New wave spotted in Texas, eh? Guess it's time for me to go hunting!

Does anybody know: Are the BSG Classic Raider and BSG Pegasus boxed with this new wave? (I never found them here from the previous wave. And you bagged 6 Raiders, Matthew? Gadzooks!) Have they show up for sale on the Hasbro Toy Shop? If they do, somebody let out a shout!

Matthew (or anybody else): Since they have been so rare to date, if you see either of the latest two BSG pieces out there, I humbly suggest that you consider purchasing them and hang onto them for possible trading with the rest of the community. Best case - you make some luckless hunter's day. Worst case - minor hassle of returning them after a few weeks 'cause they finally hit the shelves in sufficient quantity to satisfy the SSG Titanium appetite.

*SIGH*

My freakin' Wal-Marts are now clogged with Spiderman 3 Titaniums- including awful looking platinum-painted ones. *SIGH*

I wish I had been able to get that whole case from Helena...

(Snagged a 3 3/4 V-Wing today though- freakin rad! Too bad Hasbro isn't selling Clone Pilots at the moment...)

Kidhuman
05-15-2007, 07:08 AM
In my WM they actually set up the new SW ones across from the regular spot. They tossed the Spideys on the SW and the SW on the Spidey pegs, makes no freakin sense.

...Even MORE interesting-

Clone Trooper Patina being re-released? (http://www.entertainmentearth.com/prodinfo.asp?number=HS34561H1)

Heh- glad I nabbed one ages ago but what a WEIRD thing to specifically re-release the Patina version?

Darth Michael

Hmm... I wonder if they will release both a "painted" and a "patina" version of the Cylon Centurion.

And, I found some of the latest wave in a Toys'R'Us in Austin this morning. Didn't get everything, but its a start.

mtriv73
05-17-2007, 02:31 PM
Huh, well isn't that interesting! And the pricing is too low to be an exclusive.

If they're just using EE to get rid of the ones they had already made then it makes sense. If they were doing a production run just for EE then I agree it's too low. I think Hasbro is just trying to recoup as much money as they can with what already exists and EE is, thankfully, not trying to gouge us in the process.

like DM, found wave 7 here in College Station TRU...

just picked up the v-wing and plo-koon's fighter...very much like the v-wing :razz:, but a little disappointed in the color of plo koon's fighter...would've like the blue to be a bit darker, but beggars can't be choosers...i'm just glad to have found anything at all :p! neither target nor the two walmarts have had anything other than sp3 for weeks...going on months now

I spotted the whole V-wing wave at Kmart last night, I picked up the V-wing but passed on the rest, at $6.29 they're a little too much for me to buy repaints, and I had just bought a bunch of figures at Target.

mtriv73
06-07-2007, 04:13 PM
EE has a picture of wave 4 up. I'm still not sold on the BSG repaints. The A-wing looks nice though and I'm warming up to the at-tp.

JediTricks
06-07-2007, 07:56 PM
AT-AP, Derryl got the name wrong at the convention, this Titanium's package is already out, says "AT-AP".

Boy, that wave sure hurts my feelings. Another single new mold among repaints. I hope those BSG repaints keep the wave flowing rather than bogging.

Mad Slanted Powers
06-07-2007, 10:21 PM
I've seen the V-Wing, the new ARC-170, and that red Obi-Wan Jedi Starfighter. I passed on the latter because I wasn't sure if I had it or not. I do have the version that came in the 5-pack, so I may pass on this version.

Warstar
06-08-2007, 02:09 AM
The new verison is battle-damaged- the 5-pack one isn't.

AND I spotted (and bought) the new wave at much different place:

Check it out :D (http://www.hasbrotoyshop.com/SearchResults.htm?PG=1&CDT=1181282542)

$50 WITH shipping for 9 ships (one to keep, one to open) = $5.55 a piece- cheaper than Wal-Mart :thumbsup:

If nothing else, HasbroToyshop.com has THE best Titanium prices on the net- when they can keep them in stock!

All I have found locally over the last 2 weeks are batt dam Obi-Wan ROTS JSF's and 1 White Clone Tank!

I saw the movie TF titaniums at Target this morning. They had Blackout and Bumblebee, neither of which look that great if you ask me. Unfortunately, rather than trying to be mini versions of the hasbro toys, they try to be mini versions of the movie designs.

I also saw the V-Wing wave at K-Mart last night though i believe JT has pointed that out already.

JediTricks
06-18-2007, 11:37 PM
If it's still at Kmart, I think it's worth mentioning.


I saw those TF Movie Titaniums at Target as well, I thought they looked sharp by comparison to the other TF titanium 3"ers which I've never thought looked all that good. I wouldn't buy these though.

Snagged an extra Peggy a few days ago at a WM in Helena, MT. Also found a MINT Firespray repaint and got it too, since my Hasbrotoyshop.com ones were trashed.

Hooray for Wave 5! I hate to say it but I think I am most excited for the Trade Fed Ship repaint :lipsrsealed: Weird thing on that one is that it looks like the Ep 1 Republic Cruiser is still parking in the docking bay :p

A new Titanium Checklist will be posted later :)

Oh yeah- on that Ent Earth Wave listing they mention "Death Star X2" Think this will be a Death Star 2 (ROTJ) or a re-release of the Death Star they've already done? Hmmm...

thanks!...surprisingly, i found them tonight at wally-mart on my way home from work...they weren't shelved with the rest of the titaniums, but rather in the same end-cap hanging display that the naboo n-1 wave first showed up in...strange that out here in the hinter-lands we'd get them so soon, but i'm not complaining :D ...darth michael and matthewilw, y'all might want to keep your eyes peeled...if they're in college station, they're probably in y'alls' proverbial "necks of the woods" too...

and warstar, if you haven't already seen them, two of the three black vipers i found tonight had the same paint apps problem the white ones had with the paint stripe not completely filling the gap just before the end of the nose :(

Didn't see the Viper, but I did see the blue Blockade Runner and an AT-AP on a cardboard sidekick at WM tonight. Picked up the Attack Pod Walker - paint's alright, stand has no peg (weird), all 3 guns rotate side to side, middle leg hinged at upper and middle joint, side legs hinged ONLY at the farthest-in hip joint which is totally worthless.

Question: Are the Mk II Vipers in the SDCC 3-pack the repaints with "No Step", Apollo, etc. on them? Just curious.

Question: Are the Mk II Vipers in the SDCC 3-pack the repaints with "No Step", Apollo, etc. on them? Just curious.

Yes they are, I just had a Comic Con 3 pack arrive from ebay and its the same as the loose one I bagged from the far east last week.

However, the Blue and Black MkII repaint only has Galactica on the tail, Apollo's name markings and some additional signage. It lacks the seal, no step and thruster ports that the Comic Con pack has. Still, its a nice repaint.

The Red and White MkVII is nice too. Very impressed with the AT-AP and the Green A-Wing is a sound repaint.

BTW, should anyone outside of the states want these, dnstoys has the latest Star Wars ones, but is out of the BSG ones already. Pays to pre-order with those even for a wave that I wouldn't have thought would be as 'hot' as the Pegasus wave.

Warstar
08-15-2007, 10:44 PM
Awesome- just won one on Ebay for $30 with shipping :)

I don't do packaged BSG's anyway- they're all opened, so it's good to know I won't be hunting more single packs!

I saw the AT-AP at Wal-Mart as well, but passed since I mainly stick to the starships and larger ground vehicles. I also found the orange B-Wing, Green A-Wing and the new Tantive IV.

Target didn't have much, but at least they have the Star Wars Titaniums separate from the Transformers Titaniums. Wal-Mart has a lot more, but they are all mixed in, and the Star Wars ones are mostly Jabba's Sail Barge.

A couple of weeks ago they had IG-88, C3-PO and Bossk ($6 apiece) as well as th AT-AT, Tri-Droid Fighter and Tie Fighter ($9 apiece)...what was odd is that my wife (who normally doesn't like to "help" with my SW fixation) said she got a mailer from them advertising the goodies...looks like good pickins for us bargain hunters! :D

I got the Blue Tantive the other day. It's been so long since I've found any new offerings in this line that I just stood there for a bit wondering if i had it already and which wave it came in.

Yeah, I know it ain't SW but thought someone might want one. This is one of the rarest from the 3rd volume (rarest, period) and I got one set for $15 (+shipping) shipped (unbelievably quickly from Hong Kong to Canada)...shipping cost was reasonable.

There were 8 of them...now there's one left. There's a few others out there on eBay for $40+. They're mega rare at any price and weren't sold instore. I'd never heard of it 'til recently. Still looking for an Enterprise E and Romulan.

I needed to do a little surgery to get the Borg Cube's LED to light up...it's fine now.

Good hunting. The auction number is 220152158071

Hi guys, I don't collect the Titanium series, but I thought some here might be interested in what I saw at a Dollar General store tonight... they had the Titanium IG-88 and Clone Trooper for $5 each (there were many of them), and the Titanium AT-AT and ARC-170 (the bigger ones in the display bubble) for $8.

Dollar General may only be a regional chain (I live in Mississippi), but I thought I'd post this find anyway. If you have one near you (the likelihood is that if you have one, there are three), you may want to swing by there and check it out if you are missing these items. I apologize if someone has already posted this about Dollar General stores; I did not go back through this thread to find out.

(The store also had several Galactic Heroes for $6 each.)

Picked up BSG black Viper mk II at Target West Hollywood tonight. It wasn't on toy pegs, it was in the Halloween/Christmas cheap goodies section (next to the candy aisle in most stores) with some other very well-taken-care-of Titaniums. It's a very nice piece too, they painted more detail on it, there's some sparkly black paint on the upper section around the matte paint, Apollo's callsign is recognizable under the canopy, the canopy is painted at the frame, they did good work.

Hi guys! My first time to post :)

Here in the Philippines we have a complete lineup of the Titaniums being sold by special toy shops. The downside is the extremely high price: Php650 ($13) to Php850 ($18)!. Hence, no one's buying them and the store has an almost complete list of everything. There's even a time when the newest arrivals hit P1,000 ($21), thats more than an Ultra! I got scammed there last April when i bought the Executor and repainted ISD for $12 each (already with 5% "discount"), thinking twas a reasonable price. Then a month later I see the SSD on clearance sale in a shopping mall for $3. But that was very rare though, as all we got was an abundance of the Galactica Colonial One and Sandcrawler on every store shelf. Still, i bought the Ultra Gunship from them (first version with stand) for $34, since i figured it was a worthwhile purchase and there was no other like it in the whole country.

But now, i know know little store here that sells loose Titaniums for Php200 ($4), thats where i now get all of mine. I'm surprised I was able to pick up the green A-wing, blue Corellian runner, Grievous' fighter and V-wing 4 months ago when you guys were still waiting for them (and those Titaniums have been on sale for quite some time even before i bought em). They even had a gold Falcon and TIE fighter for $6, too bad I didnt buy them. Tomorrow im picking up the latest arrivals: AT-RT, AT-PT, Dewback, Naboo skiff, etc :)

We have almost every Titanium there is here, too bad they're way overpriced. And thats still an understatement.

Found the new wave tonight, picked up the Imperial V-Wing and Snowtrooper on speederbike and left the Hoth AT-ST and "Stealth" AT-AT.

Impressions:

Imperial V-Wing - Cool but actually feels smaller with such a bland paintjob, I know they were going for the monotone Imperial theme but could have used weathering.

Snowtrooper on Speederbike - Turned out better than I had expected, a bit random but better than an all-black repaint. Though I'm sure the "Stealth" Biker Scout on Speederbike is inevitable.

Hoth AT-ST - Only real "Hoth" thing about this is that it appears to be cleaner than the regular AT-ST and has a snow base, they didn't add any white speck paintjob to simulate snow and whatnot. Maybe it's for the best?

"Stealth" AT-AT - It actually reminds me more of the SM3 Venoms, it's not a pure black but rather seems to be dark blue or purple. Possible variation later? Anyways I wasn't impressed and wouldn't have been even if it was black, it just doesn't make any sense. The AT-AT is obviously supposed to be a visually intimidating machine, hence not worrying about the very loud stomping noises. There is absolutely no point in a stealth version...

AAT - Didn't see it.

I nabbed all of 2008 Wave 1 myself tonight in Helena, MT- and get this-

They were so new they weren't even in Wal-Mart's system!

At least not in Helena, anyway.

I can confirm that the only difference between this Falcon and the 2004 WM Exclusive one is the packaging and that's it- no more will Titanium Falcons scalp on Ebay for $30-$40 a shot (unless a packaged variant collector goes after it).

And with the Slave 1 being re-released soon, too- unless it's a new deco- looks like the entire 2004 wave will visit us yet again.

I like the Skiff. It's sad that it's not really in scale with anything (then again, none of these ships really are) but it would have been neat to maybe have a mini-fig on it or something.

Opened my Saesee Tiin AOTC JSF. I like it :)

The Speeder Bike is surprising cool IMHO- even though it's the SIXTH version we've had of a speeder bike. The trooper deco is nice!

The AT-OP is a pleasant surprise, too- however it looks like a plethora of variations may occur- the front windows aren't painted all that evenly, and it makes me wonder if we'll see some improvement there.

All in all a solid wave-

Now to hit Ebay for another Gray V-Wing, the Hoth Speeder Bike, the Red AAT and the Black AT-AT. Only seen scraps of this wave on the shelf and nabbed them when I did (a Gray V-wing and 2 Hoth AT-ST's).

I hope these last ships of 2007 are released in Wave revisions!

And no sign of any BSG ships tonight.

BTW- new variant list to be posted soon- hasn't been much to post lately but with Toy Fair coming up soon there hopefully will be!

On another front, I also found the Wal-Mart Exclusive Comic Pack Boba Fett and RA-7 Droid (Star Wars #81) and the Wal-Mart Exclusive Comic Pack Commander Keller and Galactic Marine (Star Wars Republic #79) 3 3/4 inch figs tonight as well. $9.88 price point, too! And I LIKE 'em! There's something about Cartoony Fett with Sarlaac slime on him I like :p And of course the Clone Troopers are good- and Keller has a REAL black cloth "skirt" BUT here's something trippy- it doesn't come off easily- if at all! It's like they sewed it around him. The white poncho comes off, however.

Good hunting all :)

I'm wondering if the wave with the Hoth AT-ST, Shadow AT-AT was a WalMart exclusive? I've only ever heard of it being found there, and it's not available from any etailers I know about (EE pulled the listing for it after a while).

On the subject of the "new" Falcon, I compared the two, and this new one has some subtle deco changes. There are some slightly different markings on the bottom of the ship, the cockpit is a different color, and the radar dish and turrets are a different shade of white. You really have to have them side-by-side to see the differences.

02-26-2008, 06:07 AM
Its surprisingly light, for a titanium. The 2 small wings on the left are rubber bendies that can be opened and closed and pivots. The big wing on the right pivots. And the front laser cannon on the right swivels.


As for the Mon Cal cruiser, i seriously thought it was plastic. Its so light, its like half the weight of the Star Destroyer. The aft end, above the engine bay, is painted with a rust like color. I dont know if this is Hasbro's interpretation of battle damage. Or maybe this particular cruiser got salvaged off the Calamarian oceans :D


Its a bit longer than the ISD, so it almost fits the 1.5-1.6 km scale when compared to the mile long ISD titanium, altho the body is way too slim compared to the Destroyer's bulk.


Im starting to think either Hasbro is skimping on the metal, or what i got is some sort of prototype from the Chinese factory that fell off the back of a truck.

Ive always wondered how my special toy store gets hold of em so fast, and always loose too

:D

mtriv73
02-27-2008, 08:14 AM
My MC80 was all metal except for the engines on the bottom rear.

The new X-wing is fantastic. My only problem with it is the cannons aren't glued on and keep falling off when jostled.

The Viper Mark VII has lettering you can actually read (not smudged like in previous releases.) It also has a wash of a darker color over the grey that I didn't remember on the original.

Anakins podracer has wheels on the bottom. Not only are they useless, but they detract from the profile of the sculpt.

The Dark shadow is nice, but I have nothing to compare it to so I guess it meets expectations.

Slave 1 may have the paint tweaked a little from the original release(s).

Overall, the paint is a lot sharper in this wave than in some previous releases. The only dud to me is the pod racer. The clear plastic thing between the tethers to the engine are no doubt necessary to keep it from falling apart, but they take away from the toy as well. I would say that I'll snap up a few more x-wings when I see them, but they'll probably be rereleased soon in a ton of repaints.

JediTricks
02-28-2008, 02:09 AM

Was this the Black Dragon store that I've heard about on other toy sites? Specifically, I've heard from collectors in the Phillipines about Black Dragon's "reject bin" section where loose toys, often with paint blemishes, wind up.

Out of the 3, I would say that the X-Wing is the best and is vastly superior to the old mold. The details are much sharper on the new mold. A word of warning, though, when you move the S foils into attack position, the gun mounts are removable and fall off quite easily.

I'll admit that I haven't examined the Rogue Shadow in great detail, be it in Lego form or whereever else but I didn't realize how asymmetric the ship is. It has 3 movable features- the left single wing rotates 90 degrees up and the right double X-wing style wing rotates 90 degrees up as well. One of the guns at the front of the ship is movable as well. I'm just having a hard time with the assymmetric design of the Rogue Shadow as it's very rare in the SW universe.

Assymetry is pretty common in the SW universe if you think about it. The falcon, outrider, b-wings, even at-st's if you want to get picky and take the weapons into account.

That's an excellent point, mtriv.

I suppose it just feels too "un Star Wars-y" as JT might say.

I suppose it just feels too "un Star Wars-y" as JT might say.Picked the Rogue Shadow up today, and though I haven't opened it up to look it over closer, I'm having a hard time really getting into this ship as well. It is very "un-Star Wars-y," but mostly it's just kind of grey and boring. Assymetry is cool, but compared to something like the B-Wing, this ship looks more like a doorstop with solar panels.

I dunno... I'll have to play with it some.

The Slave I is pretty much a straight reissue. The wings are ever-so-slightly darker than the past version, but nothing to get excited about.

At Target, I saw Rogue Shadow, Red 5 X-Wing, Mon Cal cruiser and Anakin's podracer.

As I received the first 3 from HTS, I bought only the podracer.

Incidentally, I took a better look at the Lego Rogue Shadow and it looks a million times better than the titanium. It looks black as opposed to the drab dark grey of the titanium.

Got this wave from HasbroToyShop last Friday.

Rogue Shadow flat-out sucks. This is a lame entry, minimal detail, overly fat, moving parts are uninspired. A real loser, expect this sucker to pegwarm.

Anakin's Podracer is very good, more metal than expected, has a movable part on each engine (slide the slider and both air brakes on the side open), looks good. Middle plastic is floppy though, and the wheels on the underside are crappy, but this one works.

Mon Cal Cruiser seems to be the Liberty. Weird tail color and underside color are just distractions. It's an ok ship and in scale to the Titanium ISD, but not very interesting on its own.

Luke's X-wing is amazing, an all-new version that has opening wings, landing gear, and an opening cockpit. They really nailed it with this one, the only flaws are that the cannons aren't glued on, and the wings don't lock centered when closed (a flaw many X-wing toys have).

Rogue Shadow flat-out sucks.

That just sucks, I was really hoping the Shadow would be a good one. Worth getting 2. I still have yet to see, or hear of this wave being at local stores. But, I am suprised to hear that it stinks, yet seeing someone buying it off eBay, for $60. Probibly won't stop me from buying one, when and if I come across it.

Yeppers, I picked up most of this wave at a local store last week... the only ship that was cleaned out was the Mon Calamari. I'll grab that tomorrow... hopefully one that has lighter seafood sauce/exhaust marks.

I was really skeptical about another TS X-Wing but I've been completely won over... outstanding job, Hasbro. It really is vastly superior to the others, much larger and more detailed. Shame it's a bit flimsy... but so far, no issues with the S-foil tips. Womp rats beware.

Anakin's Podracer is ok... I think that pod droopage will be less than the old Sebulba pod 'cuz they used a more robust plastic for the clear sections. Wheels are smaller, too.

The Rogue Robot Vacuum Cleaner seems to have crevice tool attachments... why do they rotate? It looks ok next to the Falcon and other mid-sized ships but doesn't really look much like a fighter to me.

It's better than I expected... but then again, I really had no expectations for this one at all. At least it's a new mould. Lack of paint detail blows, tho... especially 'cuz it's so dark.

If someone paid $60 for the RS on eBay, they're complete schmucks... and there were about 20 in-store on pegs, here anyway. Chill for a week or two and it'll turn up! Smells kinda peg warm-ish to me, too.

I skipped the Slave I... e'nuff already.

Gotta say that I was most impressed with the new Viper Mark VII repaint. It finally has a few paint details including the Colonial "wings" emblem, it's "clean" (not distressed like the first one), and it's even a better flat colour.

No more dots and scribbles (or nothing!) instead of writing on the fuselage... and the canopy's matte now, too.

I still actively dislike the red and white "classic paint" one they did a while back... uninspired and poorly executed with huge ugly black scribbles all over it. Mine's relegated to the back row.

I wish they'd do the new series Vipers in frakkin' silver... and Grievous' starfighter, too! Wassa matta wit silva, Hasbro, huh punk? You got a beef?

Still salivating for the new Cylon Basestar... and the prospect of gettin' an E-Wing and TIE Defender sends me into a diabetic coma... so very sweet.

Moreover this is the first time ever we get the blue stripes twisted around the cannon barrell in a MicroMachines (MM, Die-Cast, or AF) X-wing. :)

I do not know why but Galoob (and Hasbro when they reused Galoob molds) never put those stripes (which distinguish Luke's X-wing) on their MicroMachines, Die-Cast/Titanium, or Action Fleet Red 5 X-wings (while Revell, Fine Molds, or Tomy put it since their first version of the vehicle :yes: ).

My only concern is that the blue stripes are quite blurry on my Red 5 Titanium. Is the same on your copies or is it a problem of just mine? :cross-eye

The Titanium Ultra Red 3 X-wing has got them stripey swirls on the cannons, too... I just checked mine. The Red 5 Ultra X-Wing is also striped... I checked a pic on eBay.

Strangely enough, one of my regular Red 5 Titanium X-Wings has got grey swirls around 2 of the cannons... it's a "clean" version but I can't remember which TS wave it came from.

The other Titanium X-Wings (except the new one), the AF, and Hallmark's ain't got dem stripes.

Oh, and my new X-Wing's stripes aren't blurred, Jedigoofy. I've got a Viper Mk II from SDCC that's missing a red stripe on one wing...looks like an intentional error, if you didn't know better.

Variants can be cool so your blurry stripes might not be a total loss, depending on the error and your opinion of such things.

What ****es me off is when the hole for the stand is loose, bent, spindled, or otherwise mutilated.

It looks like I have to look for a correctly striped Red 5 X-wing. :sad:

Thank you for your corrections about the Titanium Ultra X-wing (I have them but I did not check them, my fault :) ).

The stripes on the Red 3 are strange though, I thought they were only on Luke's X-wing, but maybe they are a squadron sign. I do not know (it looks like I am not prepared for Star Wars trivia :D ).

Kinda strange of me to quote myself, Jedigoofy... but I realized I screwed up... the regular Titanium X-Wing that has the stripes is indeed a Red 5 but it's the "dirty" X-Wing with the brown crap on it (not to be confused with the one with the green crap on it). Looks like it's been "dirtied" by a Jawa latrine....

Apparently, I got it from the TRU Gift Pack 3 which came with the lame-o "raw metal" Falcon. Sorry about the confusion... I had a better look today.

About Rogue Shadow: Hasbro did a good job with this one, but it's such a boring looking ship! Kind of a shame, because I can't imagine anyone getting all excited about the Rogue Shadow during the game... whenever it comes out.

For the record, I'm really hoping that they'll go and do an Ebon Hawk at some point.

My Wave 3 order from BBTS arrived yesterday. Here are some shots.

Jedi Starfighter (http://www.flickr.com/photos/hamsalad/2390599448/)
Baron Fel's TIE Interceptor (http://www.flickr.com/photos/hamsalad/2389765599/)
Naboo Royal Cruiser (http://www.flickr.com/photos/hamsalad/2389765345/)

AT-ST (http://www.flickr.com/photos/hamsalad/2389764881/)
T-16 Skyhopper (http://www.flickr.com/photos/hamsalad/2389764683/)

The hot rod Jedi Starfighter looks pretty good. The packaging states that it was the original hand-built ship made to demonstrate it to the Jedi, essentially being a prototype.

Mace Windu's ship features a much brighter purple compared to the original release.

Plastic haters, stay away from the T-16! The only metal part on it is the underside, not counting the gun. The entire upper portion with wings is plastic.

The Naboo Cruiser is pretty solid, with a small section of plastic on the bottom.

Got my case a few days ago from EE and I love this wave! I agree that the X-Wing laser cannons falling off annoys the crap outta me, too- and I was a little disappointed that the wings were plastic and not metal.

Rogue Shadow, while kinda' nifty, isn't all that cool IMHO. And the turning wings? Big deal -_-;

Easily the show-stopper aside from the X-wing (believe it or not) is Anakin's Pod Racer. I like the levers to move to flare out the side flaps- and the paint detail is extremely well done.

I like the Rebel Cruiser too- except the bottom is plastic (which is not cool either).

And Slave 1? It's already peg-warming here -_-;

The new BSG Viper paint job is pretty frakking neat, though! :thumbsup:

Found the new AT-ST, Mace Windu's ROTS JSF and Baron Fel's Interceptor today- no Naboo Cruiser or Pimp-My-Ride Flaming ROTS JSF around.

I noticed SIGNIFICANT variations with the re-released AT-ST and Mace Windu's JSF. Notably as follows:

AT-ST:

-DIFFERENT package art than either previous version

-Black wash ONLY- no white, purple or yellow like the last 2 versions

-STILL comes with a Desert-colored base...WHY???


Mace Windu's ROTS JSF:

-BRIGHT purple- MUCH lighter than the inital release version. It's almost comic-book bright.

-DIFFERENT package art than the previous release. Easiest way to tell is that there is a depiction of the ROTS JSF cockipt window on the package artwork insert just below the Titanium Series Logo and above the ship in bubble. The first release did not have this window (so that will make it easier to tell new release Mace Windu ships in package- the BRIGHT purple will make it easy to tell out of package)

On a side note-

Baron Fel's TIE Interceptor package artwork is different than the previous TIE Interceptor releases too- and I'm not just talking about the color of the ship, either- it's a different design!

SO! Not just another THREE repaints if you collect packaged ships since the artwork is changed in all of them :p

Yeah JT, I noticed that too... except it's a pic of Amidala's Skiff from Ep. III, not the Yacht from Ep II.

I really like the Naboo silver ships... I can't wait for a Naboo Yacht but Hasbro has no plans for it this year or next, apparently. Someone asked specifically...

I gotta say that I really like the Cruiser but was a little disappointed that they skipped the landing gear.

The Greased Lightning JSF was a lot kewler than I originally thought... kinda grew on me, like lichen. The new Mace JSF is too close to Obi-Wan's though... the first Mace looked more distinct, IMHO.

The plastic T-16 is pretty unremarkable but it looks good next to my Imperial Shuttles.

Ridiculous number of repaints and retreads this year... again!

Canadian Titanium collectors rejoice! Looks like TRU and WM are carrying the new TS waves, after months of no new stock. Still a lot of old Dewbacks, B-Wings, Grievous SFs, and Sandcrawlers peg-warming, though.

I saw all of Wave 1 at 2 different TRUs, but a 3rd had none.

I picked up the Cloud Car and Green Landspeeder from Wave 2 at a WM in downtown Toronto (last 1 of each). They'd been cleaned out of the rest of Wave 2... in fact they were the only 2 TS ships in the store. The entire toy section looked like it had been ravaged by Tusken Raiders... all sorts of debris on the floor and boxes ripped open... looked like a slum from the Gaza Strip.

Well, at least the TS line's back in regular (but nightmarish) Canadian big-box stores again.

Mad Slanted, here's a comparison shots of the 2 X-Wing moulds/dies/tools... the new one (top) has closeable wings, longer laser turrets, and is larger... and has a lot more plastic parts. The Wedge paintjob is different than the 1 in the pic and is "battle damaged"... but the mould's the same.

I asked her to pick up the RGS, seeing as I originally passed on it because of the lack of nose art. I asked for it because someone said ( and sorry but I forget who ) that the nose art was indeed these just faded, or lightly printed on. Got home, opened it to get a really close look, between the green paint on the nose and the small door opening. THERE ISN'T THE FAINTEST SIGN OF ANY TWI'LEK NOSE ART:mad::mad::mad::mad::mad:. I'm sorry, but what the flip was HASBLO thinking?.?.?. " Let's release another RGS, say it has some nose art, but not put anything there. The stupid masses will buy it. " Sure enough, I fell for their osik. But, I have a question for anyone who also bought the "new" Republic Gunship, does your have the mystery nose art?????? Every one I looked at before, does not.

Interestingly (and not that I'm complaining) I haven't seen the Sandspeeder once since midnight maddness. The pegs around here are absolutely clogged with Arc-170's and Republic Gunships. The new high price isn't helping move them either.

Just picked up leggy wave 3 tonight at a Toronto WM... finally some new ships! There was only 1 unopened box of 12 TS ships and empty shelves... so I ripped that sucka open and helped myself to the whole wave.

Some scalper/WM staffer's gonna be p.o.'ed.:pleased: Then again, maybe I just saved WM some time.

Like the TIE Defender a lot... very nicely done and I like the grey. No wing saggage or warpage at all.

Not that thrilled with the cigarette burnmark paint on the Imperial Landing Ship, but otherwise it's quite nice, too.

The Rebel Transport was outstanding, IMO. It's huge and the detail and paint are top notch. Can't wait for more Rebel capital ships...

Not excited by the "clean" MTT really, though it'd be quite useful as a lethal projectile... it's purty heavy.... it's gotta be the heaviest TS yet.

I even ponied up for the 2 Twilek nosejob ships and the Shadow Gunship... but I'm not really sure why. I just can't stop myself, every time. Sigh. Frickin' repaints, mumble mumble...

Can anybody confirm that the wave 3 AT-AP and Skiff are identical retreads, or are they slightly different in some way? I skipped 'em.

has anyone spotted arcs and gunships with the "lucky lekku"?

I haven't seen anything from that wave and I'm looking almost daily. KH, in Virginia, said he saw part of this wave once at a wal-mart. A buddy of mine found the MTT and nothing else at a Target in Leesburg, VA. Other than a few random cases here and there I don't think it's really started hitting in the states yet because the system is clogged up with over priced repaints that the kiddies don't seem to want and collectors aren't buying either.

vectorx: has anyone spotted arcs and gunships with the "lucky lekku"?

Yeah, the ones I got from Wave 3 have the markings... unlike the wave 1 & 2 versions.

Like I said before, my local WM just got one box of 12, apparently. Not sure why so few...

If you've been putting off getting the Ultras, or thought you might have lost your chance, HasbroToyShop has Darth Vader's TIE, the Falcon, the AT-AT, the Snowspeeder and Slave 1 for $8.99 each. They also have the Droid Tri-Fighter and ARC-170 for $19.99 each.

Also, if you use "Fall20" it gives an extra 20% off and free shipping. I just made an order and the code definitely works in case you're wondering.

Wish I could remember if I was missing the Slave 1, Snowspeeder and/or DV's TIE... About 98% of my collection is packed away due to moving at the beginning of the year so it's nearly impossible to check.

Spotted and boughted ;) the TS Hailfire Droid and Droid Gunship. I also picked up a pain variant/error on the Droid Gunship, that of its CIS logos missing.

The Hailfire Droid is almost all metal, very well executed if you don't mind the fact that it's a statue. The lower gun actually does move, but that is it. Paint is pretty good and lots of detail, and it stays upright like a champ. This thing has some considerable heft to it.

The Droid Gunship has lots of weathering, it's not as good as the proto but it's alright. The thing is mostly plastic and weighs very little since there's not all that much to the design. The main head unfortunately is plastic, and it doesn't match the deco of the other plastic or metal elements all that well, it's also a little loose. There's a good look to it, but some screw holes are set out of the body leaving pegs underneath, that's no good. The only movable parts are the side guns, they pop out about 10 degrees from their packaged state, I guess it didn't fit in the package tray with that last few millimeters.

Wave 4 showed up on the right coast today as well. I got them all at a WM in Leesburg, VA. I still haven't seen wave 3 yet.:sad:

Can anybody confirm that the wave 3 AT-AP and Skiff are identical retreads, or are they slightly different in some way? I skipped 'em.

The Skiff is different slightly, in case you hadn't figured out already. The paint job appears to have some "battle damage" or something. There are several darker spots on the front of the craft and it isn't just a bad paint job. Every one that was hanging on the shelf had the same markings. This seems like the weakest repaint I've seen, including the AT-OT repaint where one version has red markings and the Open Circle Fleet logo and the other is slightly darker red with the Republic logo.

As for the AT-AP, where would the retread be from? I have 2 versions, one with red markings and one with red markings. These are the only two I have come across.

Thanks cloneemperor,

Yeah, I was aware that the new skiff had a dark colour wash on it this time... I updated Warstar's variant list a week or so ago.

As for the AT-AP, as far as I know, there's the "original" light grey version and a darker black CW version...both have red on 'em. I don't know of any other versions. They're on the variant list, too.

I hope that JT "stickys" the updated variant lists... which reminds me, JT mentioned that there's a Droid Gunship variant out there.

Found the droid landing craft & Biggs' X-wing at local Target. Still haven't seen rebel transport or TIE Defender. Can someone list what waves are popping up now & what exactly is contained in these waves. I'm out of the loop on Titaniums, so I'm not even sure what I'm looking for. Thanks!

1x Rebel Transport
1x Imperial Landing Craft (Special Edition)
2x MTT
1x Shadow Republic Gunship (Clone Wars)
1x Republic Gunship (Twi'lek Nose Art)
1x ARC-170 Starfighter (Twi'lek Nose Art)
1x AT-AP
2x Tatooine Skiff


Wave 4:

2x Hailfire Droid
1x X-wing Fighter (Red 2)

2x AT-RT Redeco
1x Trade Federation Landing Craft

I found both these waves, though wave 3 I found about 2 months ago. It should be showing up.
I passed on most of the repaints, except for Biggs' and Wedge's X-Wings (Red 2 and 3)
