Man, I'm hoping for something cool.

This has been the worst year for SW since the relaunch in the mid-90's. They haven't made any new vehicles or beasts, and precious few new action figures.

They've got no where to go but up!

Well, a bit of good news.

According to a picture at Rebelscum, the new MTT should be hitting store shelves on August 1st. Which means I'll finally buy a significant SW item for the first time in 2012 next month. :)

Very disappointed -- first 2 BAD waves are all just resculpts or rereleases-- no new characters at all..

And Brian Toys with an exclusive-- Jocasta Nu is going to cost like 30 bucks based on their normal pricing.

Any idea about what time these sets will go on sale on the website and what day?

I'm sorry to see the Vintage Collection ending. It's back to cherry picking figures once they switch to the Artoo cards.

Best news yet is that the I'm getting another shot at the BMF and AT-AT, in Vintage packaging no less! :D 8)

The only new figure I'm excited about is Jocasta Nu. There are so many characters they haven't made figures of yet and they just keep doing the same figures over and over.

Jocasta Nu looks awesome. I hope Brian's Toys doesn't price her too high.

BMF, AT-AT and Ewoks for me. I just wish the one Ewok set wasn't a Kmart exclusive. The nearest Kmart is like 30 miles away. Not sure if I want them that much.

Cal, there's a K-Mart near my place so you might be in luck. I'll grab you a set if they land here.

Clutch, you are the freaking man! :D That would be so greatly appreciated.

Anyone have any idea what the BMF and AT-AT will retail for this time around?

I'm definitely not gonna be buying enough of them to complete a robot. Pablo Jill and Mara Jade are the only two on my list so far.
