That GH Asajj Ventress is the most awesome thing ever, and will most assuredly be mine.

That will be all.

I picked up the new wave of GH at Target in Springfield, OR this morning. They were $5.99 each.

Saw the new Legacy packaged wave at TRU this morning, but I held off on buying them. I can wait until the 26th and get everything I want in one go.

Yes but the manager said since it didn't have anything to do with Clone Wars he would OK the sell.

I still need Gree & Tarrful,Ki & Bacara,Agen & Sasee and Secura & Bly 2 packs.

I had someone buying these for me and I had to turn down another guy(I think it was wyldave)who offered them to me and the first guy fell thru....now Im having a real hard time finding this wave.

Does anyone have an extra set or could buy them if they see them again in their area?

thanks!

I also need those sets, as I've NEVER seen them. I think that's really ridiculous, since I saw multiples of every McQuarrie figure with no problem, but can't find these? What the heck, Hasbro?

Found the new sets at TRU the other night but they wouldn't ring up... they offered to hold them for me but I declined.

Found them today at a Target, $ 5.99

The paint on this new wave seems to be the best I've seen on these things in awhile.

I stumbled across the Shaak Ti/Plo Koon wave a week or so ago, and couldn't bring myself to buy any of them. It looked like their painting was done at the same factory that does the Superhero Squad.

Agreed. I just resorted this week to eBay for them, and got some decent deals, but still paid about $8-9 per set w/ shipping. If it's any consolation at all (and somebody correct me if I'm wrong) it's been my experience that every Galactic Heroes set has eventually been re-released at some point. So if you can wait, I'd be surprised if we didn't see these at retail again eventually. I just don't have the patience myself :p

Has anyone seen the GH Rancor TRU exclusive yet by any chance? It is listed as coming out on 9/15 but I want to know if it will hit early like say Friday night at Midnight Madness.

Except for those two TRU sets, those other four sets are NOT exclusives...

According to Hasbro at Toy Fair, those four sets were exclusive to no one. So yes, available everywhere... we just don't know when.

...in addition to release dates, here is the Galactic Heroes page from the Official Hasbro Handbook. A bit grainy, but you can see some pictures of the upcoming figures.

I picked up the four new 2-packs today at Target. They had the Jabba's Palace and X-Wing sets out on the shelf as well.

Browsing through the pictures from SDCC I noticed some things I hadn't seen in print anywhere else. First the Christmas Heroes, which seem like they would have limited play value. But also a Galactic Heroes Pit of Carkoon Cinema Scene with at least a skiff and Boba Fett and Han Solo. There was also a swampy looking X-Wing in the back of the photo. Dagobah Cinema Scene perhaps? Both would be pretty sweet. I am looking forward to more pictures.

[/QUOTE]

Target has got these in here as well, I want to get Jabba The Hutt but don't want to pick up all the characters I already have. The X-Wing isn't that exciting though.

The Skiff in the Pit of Carkoon set is looking snazy though, we have plenty of Skiff characters who can use it so if it's reasonably priced I might pick it up. The only problem is might need to get a couple to have a good looking scene happening.

Haven't seen any smaller 2 packs in months so playing the waiting game atm.

I cant wait to get these!

Im a vintage guy but the appeal of these for some reason really gets to me.These GHs are the only modern items I have a soft spot for


I guess with the appearance of the snowspeeder in 2009 and the 2 pack of AT-AT driver/Gen Veers that we have its probably safe to assume we will get a AT-AT in 2009/2010.

This line will be strong for many years and I will buy every figure/vehicle/playset/beast made for this line


Im truly hooked

Not to be rude to any fans of these, but I always thought Galactic Heroes were kinda for little kids, besides there kinda ugly (at least in my mind).

Well, you are entitled to your opinion, but if you had children you would understand. These little guys are great for the kids (and fun for the dads, too). Minimal amount of separate parts means less accessories lost (blasters, etc...) and they are just so damn cute too! I went out this morning and found all 4 of the latest 2packs and also an extra Tarful/Gree, which my son can use for army-builders. He also likes the mainline figures but these have their own niche with a lot of folks.

Speaking for myself, I never really got into them until my fiance and I moved in together and she was a collector.

Needless to say, I've grown to really love the little guys. They're cute, they're fun and cheaper than the conventional 3 3/4in figs (which I will still get when money allows).

They're just fun. Need there be a better explanation?

They're not cheaper anymore.

At least in my area, a basic figure is roughly the same price as one of these 2 packs, if not the exact same.

That's part of why I had to drop this line, that and the endless series of $20 packs containing 2 new people and 8 repacks.


They're still awesome toys, though, and I did pick up the R2/Leia and JarJar/Droideka packs, and as usual, I LOVE THE DROIDEKA!!!

IT IS SO COOL!!!
