Just posted the news to the front page:

Thoughts? Did the cover your favorites? Anyone you needed? Did they leave anyone out?

I need Shae.

Hopefully, I'll be able to find her this time around. :?

Surprised they remembered to put an Ewok in there. That is the only one I will be picking up.

I have to admit I was happy to see this. But I am a bit confused...I am working at TRU for seasonal help and we recently had about two cases of SW product hit the pegs already and they quickly flew out the door...we had the following figures available...
Episode I Darth Maul
Episode VI Luke Skywalker (Lightsaber Contruction) – Deleted Scene figure
CW Anakin Skywalker
Episode IV Darth Vader
Episode V Luke Skywalker (Hoth Outfit)
Episode II Aayla Secura
EU Nom Anor
Episode III Clone Trooper (501st Legion)
Episode VI Kithaba (Skiff Guard)
Episode IV Dr. Evazan (Cantina Patron)
Episode VI Wedge Antilles

So my question is, was this part of the Vintage collection or the "Best of" that is referenced in the article? What if any designation is there going to be that it is part of the "Best of" wave?

Cool cause I need Shae and Starkiller. Too bad Darth Malgus not in these as he is the only other one I want that I am missing.

This is encouraging as this year was a real drought for Vintage figures. The Phantom Menace stuff of last January has clogged the pegs for 11 months.

I need Nikto, Kithba, and Tarkin. It would be awesome to get a 2nd Gamorrean Guard. Bom Vindin may be fan-demanded but he was a considerable peg-warmer in some stores. A lot of these figures I saw only once and never again. I saw Malgus once but I don't collect prequel or Extended U figures. If I had more money I would!

I still need an Imperial Commander. My own fault, as I saw him once and didn't buy it.

Distribution woes notwithstanding, I actually have everything on the list.

Don't think anyone had trouble finding Darth Maul and would have liked to see the 3 that Wildcard listed along with Malgus and Bastila on the list.

I do get the strange feeling that the Build a Droid waves will get pushed back a few months.

Most of those are in stock at HTS right now. Free shipping over $25 and there are usually codes you can find on the Internet for $15% off.

Well hopefully that Kithaba has the corrected red bandana--

I have an extra brown one now waiting to be exchanged in the store..

I got Kithaba today at Walmart. Brown headband of course. Dropped his gun somewhere in the parking lot as I was opening it and there was no way I was ever going to find it.
