Fantastic. Everything shown at NYCC should be in the first wave then, and SDCC will show the 2nd wave. Kickass!!!

Peace,

Chip

Lets see now...

Quote:
16 brand new figures along with collector requested repaints and reissues will be available in singles,3-packs and 6 packs. Figures will be out in two waves. Each wave will consist of two 6-packs, two 3 packs and five single carded figures,some with brand new accessories. This line will be sold exclusively at Target stores starting Aug 1, 2008.


Wave 1
6 Pack
6 Pack
3 Pack
3 Pack
Single
Single
Single
Single
Single

Wave 2
6 Pack
6 Pack
3 Pack
3 Pack
Single
Single
Single
Single
Single

So 23 individual figures per wave. Total of 46 figures.

46 figures minus 16 "brand new figures" equals 30 "collector requested repaints and reissues."

Well, it looks promising that we'll be getting some of the harder to find figures of recent days. (Still not having the Grodd set, Barda/Deadshot pack and Star Sapphire/Sand pack I need to do stuff like this to give myself hope!!)

I can't wait for this! That's an awesome 6 pack. I never expected to see Farager and Lashina figures but I'm glad they were made! Makes me really want Highfather, Kalibak, Desaad, Steppenwolf, Granny and the other Female Furies to be made.

Wait a sec...there are 2 6-packs per wave, which means 4 in total??

Or should that be 1 6-pk per wave?

Either way, cool to see new stuff coming!


I'm assuming that was a typo for the simple fact that if it was accurate that means we would be getting a total of 46 figures only 16 of which are "brand new". No way in hell can that be accurate...I think it’s more likely that we will see five figures and two three packs per wave with only one six pack. For a total of 28 figures. 12 repaints/re packs seams more realistic.


EDIT: damn, Cantina-Dan beat me to that point.

They specifically mention 2 waves. Is that 2 waves for 2008 or is that 2 waves only and we'll wait and see if there are any more? I'd be fine with just 2 more waves, but I'd still like to see more in 2009.

I am confuse. So that means Wave one will have the 2 different 6-packs. The one with Mantis, Forager and Lashina plus 1 more of different characters?

See, this is the kind-of 'follow-up' that has to happen now.

Hey Scott, care to chime in and answer some questions?

Peace,

15 repaints and 15 reissues is a lot for 16 new figures...

After a whole wave of repeats i would hope mattel would be able to do this:

Wave One
6 Pack: 3 new figures
6 Pack: 3 new figures
3 pack: 2 new figures
3 pack: 2 new figures
Single: New figure
Single: New figure
Single: New figure
Single: Repeat
Single: Repeat

Thats 16 New figures in one wave without stretching it
