Is there any news on new stuff coming out in stores?
Count me as one Star Wars fan that's a little more excited for the 3.75 inch product over the 6 inch (though the 2nd Wave of 6 inch Black series sounds killer right now).
Supposedly the Saga Legends lava Vader-packaged figures
and Mission Series 2-packs
are already showing up at stores on the West Coast, so , yeah, it will be a while before *I* get to see them.
I'm extremely excited for the K-Mart Exclusive Vintage Collection Ewok Catapult set
. I'm all over that: http://www.forum.starwars-figuren.com/forum/topic.asp?TOPIC_ID=516
Very Very Very excited for these K-Mart Exclusive Vintage Collection Scanning Crew sets
Can't wait to get my hands on these: http://forum.starwars-figuren.com/forum/topic.asp?TOPIC_ID=520
I live by 4 K-Marts. If I can't get these, I'm cracking skulls.
The unconfirmed reports for the future waves of 3.75 inch Black Series have me really hopeful:http://www.jeditemplearchives.com/content/modules.php?name=News&file=article&sid=11956
I don't want to get too excited for them until Hasbro can confirm something at SDCC.
The first wave of Black Series 3.75 inch is Ok. Not great. They've already showed up in a retail store in China. I hope they can get them out soon. The state of Star Wars toys has been pathetic for over a year.
I really want that Padme. After looking at the Luke, I think I'll pass. My 30th Ann. Collection version is "good enough" I need a Biggs, so I'll be getting him. I might pick up at least one Biker Scout trooper:http://www.jeditemplearchives.com/content/modules.php?name=News&file=article&sid=12007
Ofcourse, all I REALLY care about is The Vintage Collection
. It was short-sided of them to "cancel" The VC. The Vintage Collection is what really got me collecting again. It should have been handled a lot better, distribution-wise, but I can't complain about all the beautiful carded-figures it gave me.
There's some other stuff: A Vintage-boxed Republic gunship, Vintage Collection Biggs X-Wing TRU exclusive that (want that one), some class II vehcles, and a Darth Vader Ep.3 4-pack that's actually pretty nice. There's probably a lot more.
My Targets are a pathetic sight right now. There's a Star Wars display , but it's just lightsabers, Angry Birds and those Anakin/Clone Trooper shampoo bottles. Almost no action figures. A few TPM wave Vintage figures at every store but now that the Movie Heroes are Clearanced, there's like, no action figures. Hasbro!
