I have heard between the 23rd of April and May 16th.
I don't think they have aa "street" date like the SPs and the 4/23 toys.But I could be wrong about that.
Some one here will set us straight I'm sure

According to the interview that Philip Wise held with a Hasbro rep just recently, hasbro are attempting to get as many figures as possible onto the streets for May 16th. There will only be roughly 14 figures released on April 23rd. Which means that we should be looking to see pictures of the next lot from the middle of April onwards probably. Apparently it all depends on how fast the factories can churn the stuff out. Simple as that. Of course then there's the sneaked out the back door EBAY auctions and wotnot so maybe we'll start to see stuff as it comes off the factory conveyor belts. ;)

Does that include the Deluxes?

I don't think so. I think it refers to the basic figures. But the quote did say roughly 14 not exactly 14. So count at least two deluxe on top of that probably Jango and Mace. :) But don't quote me cuz y'know what hasbro's like for changing their minds at the last minute about things.

:( WE most likely won't get delux yoda till the moive realse since the lightsaber and all.

Mylow is probably right. Remember we didn't get Episode I Yoda until the movie came out. Anyway, Whenever they come out is fine. I'll be busy getting the other figures in the mean time.

I can't wait for the midnight sale, but i do hope we get some pics of new stuff. I can't wait to see Yoda w/ his saber.

Fortunately, there is only 1 real army builder amongst all of them to run us up a fortune at the cash register: the Super BattleDroid.

I have tons, maybe 30 extra regular BattleDroids from Episode One that I picked up cheap a while back, and I do think the blaster effects will fit on their old guns, if you want to borrow them from newer figures. Yes they will - just checked that!

Sweet. It's too bad that these effects won't fit on Stormtrooper blasters or DL-44's, or my older Classic figures would be having some fun!

Anyway, Jango Fett's blaster effects will fit on the E1 Battle Droid's blaster rifle, and if you don't plan on using all your figures in battle scenes, your E2 figures can loan these nifty effects to some of their veteran friends.
