Many of the April 23 figures have already been found in stores, I myself have the first 14 from a Wal-Mart in Kentucky. Before that, some people have connections in Hong Kong to get the figures before they are even sent to stores in the U.S. Usually, not always, you will see these being auctioned from L.A., Singapore, or even Hong Kong. If I go to Hong Kong anytime soon, I will try to make these connections too.

But what about Nikto, Saesee and Luminara? They are currently being auctioned on ebay here in the US, are those not going to be available on the 23rd?

No one knows for sure what exactly will be released on the 23rd yet. When an official list gets out, SirSteve will let you know.

I think the person auctioning Luminara, Taun We, and the Royal Guard got them from overseas. I don't think they will be avaliable on the 23rd. Originally there was going to only be 14 figures out that night, and then cases of the Jar Jar: Senator wave started popping up in some places, so there may be 19. I think and hope that will all that is out that night. 19 is a perfect ammount, anymore is just a little crazy. Here is what has been spotted in stores, and should be avaliable in decent quantaties on the 23rd.

Collection 1 (Wave 1):
[01] Anakin Skywalker: Outland Peasant Disguise
[04] C-3PO: Protocal Droid
[13] Jango Fett: Kamino Escape
[05] Kit Fisto: Jedi Master
[03] Obi-Wan Kenobi: Coruscant Chase
[02] Padmé Amidala: Arena Escape
[14] R2-D2: Coruscant Sentry
[06] Super Battle Droid

Collection 2 (Wave 1):
[11] Battle Droid: Arena Battle
[07] Boba Fett: Kamino Escape
[09] Captain Typho: Padmé's Head of Security
[12] Plo Koon: Arena Battle
[10] Shaak Ti: Jedi Master
[08] Tusken Raider: Female w/ Child

Collection 2 (Wave 2):
[16] Dexter Jettster: Coruscant Informant
[15] Geonosian Warrior
[24] Jar Jar Binks: Gungan Senator
[21] Nikto: Jedi Knight
[20] Saesee Tiin: Jedi Master

They'd better have Col.2 Wave 2 out on the 23rd, otherwise I'm gonna have to break into the stockrooms and take my darned Nikto!

Ooh, I see, it's all about the chinese connection :happy: . But what about the Red CloneTrooper, does he have any hopes of appearing on the 23rd or are the Jedis going to have to fight by themselves? :(

I know what ya mean pthfnder89, Collection 2: Wave 2 is I think one of the all around best assortments in a long time. :) How can you beat figures like, Dexter Jettster, Geonosian Warrior, Jar Jar Binks, Nikto Jedi, and Saesee Tiin. :)

Yep, just like in the movie the Red CloneTrooper and his buddies should show up until the need for re-inforcents are desperate, probably closer to the movie opening. I hope they won't be avaliable that night, 19 figures is already a little much. :) Here is what should be out shortly after the 23rd, and before May 16th:

Collection 1 (Wave 2): (Unconfirmed #'s)
[ ] Anakin Skywalker: Hanger Duel
[ ] Clone Trooper (Red)
[ ] Yoda: Jedi Master
[ ] Zam Wesell: Bounty Hunter

Collection 2 (Wave 3):
[26] Luminara Unduli (Jedi Master)
[19] Royal Guard: Coruscant Security
[25] Taun We: Kamino Cloner

Let's all put a April 23 list as part of the signature, so every post will have a list!!

SirSteve said it wasn't an official listing and at the bottom of Rebelscum's post they also say that. Hopefully it's just 19 figures, cause if it's 24 not only does it add more figures to the list but a couple more army-builders as well.

Well, a little after the 23rd and shortly before May 16th means one thing to me...Greenville, NC won't get them until September! I wasn't at all too impressed with the first 14. Obi-Wan's decent, Anakin can't fight worth a s**t with his arm, don't get me started about Padme, and poor Shaak Tii is frozen in time. However, I do like Jango Fett, Kit Fisto rocks, Plo Koon is on the verge but he passes, and hell, R2-D2 beeps! I'm sorry to say the only figure sculpted the way they should be is Cpt. Typho. Although he's not the biggest character at least he has the abilty to sit down and keep his hands free by putting his gun on his belt. As long as the 23rd gives me Nikto Jedi and Saesee Tin I'll be happy. However, I wouldn't mind seeing Hanger Duel Anakin as long as I can move his hands normally. Ok, that's me putting in my $5. All in all I don't want to be broke, and I know I will if there are more figures. I'm not a competionist, I just like toys and won't be able to contain myself.

These figures are looking GOOD...can the Obi-Wan fight worth a damn? I want him to do battle with Jango Fett...

You can do what others do and take Hasbro's images and claim them as your own by stamping them and not crediting the original source.

:D

Well, as I said Deadeye, Obi-Wan's decent. I'm not too thrilled about his pose especially cuz he can't fit in the Jedi Starfighter and he's supposed to be hanging from a droid. If you put the lightsaber in his left hand it looks like he's just holding it and putting it in his right hand almost gives him an en guarde approach. I do like him though and I think he's posseable enough to fight Jango. Jango's killer though. He's my favorite of the line, so far. I just want a Nikto

Stad, where in Kentucky did you find them? I have seen everything up to and including the preview figs, but that's it.

No early release...of EP2 figures.

BTW, I live in the Fort Knox area.
