    Nicely dicely. I too haven't found wave 1, but I'm really hoping I'll find waves 2 and up because I've been looking forward to the return of Die Cast MMs for a long time.

    That Jedi Fighter has a opening cockpit. MAybe it's big enough to fit a AF figure in?

    The snowspeeder opens as well. I dunno whether I should open these. I think I will, but have to buy a shelf first. JT, you have a PM.

    Thanks to Kidhuman, I now have all 4 new molds from wave 2 as well as the Y-wing. The packaging on these is pretty cool in person, getting them free is kinda a pain since you have to cut SO MUCH tape and then the bottom of the bubble.

    The AT-RT is nice to look at, but with no moving parts or features it's just a statue, and the limitations of die cast keep it from being a really sharp-looking statue at that. But it's still a nifty piece and looks quite authentic from what I've seen so far.

    The Y-wing has a nicer "head" sculpt than I realized, I missed out on the original and now regret it. The only features are the turning ion cannon and the moveable landing gear, but the overall look is pretty effective and very "whooshable".

    The Republic Gunship is pretty slick, but its package is a liar since it claims the doors are moveable when they are not. The ship only has 1 feature, the opening cockpit, but has a pretty nice sculpt and accurate shape, and the rubbery missile launchers at the top look pretty nice. It does have the same screws-in-one-side problem that the Hasbro figure version and Action Fleet version suffer from, but oh well.

    The Droid Tri-Fighter is surprisingly big and hefty, and has a nice paint job. The sculpt is a little soft, but has enough detail to bring it to life, and the rotating center pod is a good feature to have. The non-removable missiles on the bottom give it a sense of which way is up, which is good because except for that and a slight deco change, the ship is idetical on all 3 sides, including adding a 3rd eye which I haven't seen on any of the other toys or in the movie version.

    The Ep 3 Jedi Starfighter seems pretty small in package, but is actually not small for a die-cast in this line, and while the paint work is a bit simple there is more stuff going on. The sculpt seems very accurate except for the ultra-plain interior and slightly tall canopy. It has 3 features, first a set of moveable and really long landing gear, second an opening cockpit which doesn't actually open the way it does in the movie but close enough, and third the solar wings actually open and are even painted on the inside. I really like how this one looks with its wings open, and they're limited to open to the proper angles which makes me smile. This one is my favorite to "whoosh" of the set.


    All in all, Hasbro needs to pick up the quality of their sculpting a little, and try not to let any vehicles go totally featureless like the AT-RT, but it's a welcome addition to my Micro Machines Die Cast collection and I'm glad to see even more on the way.

    Re: Titanium Series Wave 2

    Target section? Why, whatever do you mean? This is the Titanium forum. (Yeah yeah, I realized just before reading the threads today that I had made that mistake and split these 2 posts off into the proper thread)
