I opened a case of the new wave, there were no short packs, it's just army builders buying them up.lobsterfish said:I found them and it looks like the Speeder will be the rarest of the three. Probably for army building or shortpacking as you mention, but the one I got was the only one I saw.
The repaint wave (ROTS holo emperor wave) of 8 figures didn't last very long.
These are great! I have all three already and looking for more Scout Trooper w/Speeder BikeGNT said:"The first wave of Galactic Heroes figures for 2006 features brand-new detailing on some of your favorite Star Wars characters and comes in a package with a new line look for 2006.
Available in the spring at retailers everywhere will be Luke Skywalker with Han Solo, Luke Skywalker with speeder bike, and scout trooper with speeder bike."
Han once again is wearing his Jacket in the correct colour, very nice
I don't understand quite what it was they were pulling over anyone's eyes in this auction. The JarJar is the only figure there that's a custom and they never claim that the JarJar is official or even mention it in the auction. They just said here's a lot of Galactic Heroes figures and they started the auction at $9.99, which is less than what you'd pay for the three sets still in the box. What's the crime?Glitch said:

There are two times in the Questions/Answers where she clearly says it is a custom - I do not believe there was any intent to deceive on the sellers part.
Is there even an official GH Jar Jar anyway?
Sentinel said:I went to Wal-Mart this afternoon, and they had dozens of the new repackaged Galactic Heroes (scout trooper, luke hoth and han hoth, and luke speeder). I bought the Scout Trooper with Speeder Bike, and will post pics if you want them.
Lady_Jaye said:I want to see pics of the Scout Trooper with Speeder Bike!!
Galactic_Marine said:I have seen him around!!! He looks sweet! He also has weathering, if I remember right!!
Here you go...the pic doesn't really do the scout justice, because of the weathering!!
Lady_Jaye said:Nice, this will be the only set I pick up!!! I love the Biker Scout!! Oh yeah, thanks for the pics!! I wouldn't mind seeing the other ones as well, if you have time that is!
Galactic_Marine said:WOW I want one too!!!!
Master_Dersan said:cool I really like this figures I find them funny and they always look like they were a goalie
ThorOakenfelder said:Dang I thought that you meant the wave that included Maul. I've had these for several weeks now.
r2_jenn2 said:yeah i saw these yesterday at k-mart. i really like the scout trooper with the speeder bike.
jediriccan said:Te new ones are rocking, but I still have not yet bought one of these period, and don't plan on it. I can't afford to add another addition to my list....
With the repaints and ones available now you can still nab most of the collection at Target, Walmart, and TRU. One shelve warmer I thought would never go away was the Falcon and XWing box sets...but those have vanished.JGordon24 said:I have never bought any of these, but when I saw the new Scout Trooper with the Speeder Bike, I was really thinking about buying it. I didn't....because I have none of the other ones, but man I like the look of that thing. Just awesome.
The original Obi (playskool Duel w/ Darth Maul) was blue saber. I'd rather get a Qui-Gon than just his saberDarth_Rayne said:He kills Maul with Qui-Gon's lightsaber. Maybe that's what they're going for in this set.
Same here, have always admired the look of some of them but have never actually got around to buying one. This one looks too cool to pass up, I might just end up grabbing it.JGordon24 said:I have never bought any of these. man I like the look of that thing. Just awesome.
I was the same, didn't want anything to do with them, bought one because it was on clearance then what did you know I had to get every single one. Talk about an addiction to plastic, now I know how smokers feeljediriccan said:I am really digging the new GH's, but I don't own one of them. I cannot get into another collecting line, budget will not allow it. I know if I get one, I am gonna want tons of them, so I am staying away totally, lol....
luckily, if you ever decide to quit, you can resell your old plastic, might take a loss on some, but you can get some $$ back. Smokers cannot resell their used cigs.GNT said:I was the same, didn't want anything to do with them, bought one because it was on clearance then what did you know I had to get every single one.

Sounds like a plan. But it three years these may be through the roof in price. I mean, you could sell the GH and givem whatever else is hot at the time.KING said:I have a whole wall of these baby's. I'm buying them for my future son or daughter. When they turn three, I'm giving them every single set from the Play School to the new ones and I'm going to let them have a field day
I can't wait!!!
