So, which of these figures are straight repacks, retools and brand new?  Anyone have a breakdown of these?

he has a silver shin, but the gold is not shiny at all.....I thought I read somewhere the armor was going to be removable, but it isn't

I thought that as well.

Defiantly a few figures worth picking up of the list, very helpful!

Yeah I'm not sure if I'm buying the complete vintage collection yet...   I'm not sure if I can get over the vintage / prequel thing.  :-\
There will come a time when your training ends. There will come a day when you have learned all the lessons, when all my knowledge of the dark side will be yours. On that day you will challenge me for the title of Master, and only one of us will survive the encounter.

My recipe for solving said "vintage/prequel thing card back issue".

1. Tear of card
2. Open figure
3. Throw card away or Burn, depending on hatred for said movie.
4. Don't buy any for Keeping in the package!

;)

3PO looks like they took the plastic from the old figure carry case and made a new droid.  He totally looks inaccurate and even if he had removable armor, it still would stay on the shelf for me....easy pass.  As for the prequels on vintage cards....probably gonna grab the grevious just for the pockets in his cape, but not gonna keep him carded - blasphemous!

Just so we're clear, the Vader is not exactly a repack...the helmet and head are new.  Likewise with Grievous, who has a new cape.

And as long as we're on the topic, Wedge is being delayed.  Apparently there were some problems with the headsculpt or mold, and he's being postponed until they can get it right.  He's definitely still coming out, though.

He is, very noticeable from any other 3PO figure, I'll be passing on this one especially since he's not shiny!
The Ewok throne figure is nice enough for me I don't need him to be SA.
Also there are 3 removable parts I believe.

I was at my local Target today as they stocked the shelves, I picked up a Hoth Assault BP a ATAT Commander and a Manalorian Police Officer. On the Mando Officer, there was Sticker for the Battle Mat and Sgt. Bric.  I intend to buy  each wave but I will buy the new sculpts first and get the  repacks later, maybe.

This goes to show you we have some TRUE DIPSHITS working at Hasbro.  The pegs have been bare since January or longer in some states, but the dumbasses drop EVERYTHING a week before a Celebration when everyone who might be attending is trying to STACK not blow hundreds of dollars.   >:(    Way to go distribution, you guys win first prize at the SUCKATHON!  >:( >:(

Saw this on eBay...

Now I can see why some don't like the vintage card on prequel figs... IT LOOKS WEIRD!!!

Again tear the card off... :)

The Grevious looks too big for the vintage style.Hasbro should put him in a box similar to the Wampa.

I think it would be a GREAT idea if Hasbro still had the old Kenner molds and they made those figures in the vintage line. Talk about memories.

I want to get them just for the "cards" because I still have alot of great memories of them when i would buy them as a kid.

Found Wave 2 of vintage on Thursday at TRU.  A truly awesome trio of figures in Sidious, Anakin and the Magna Guard.  Passed on the others due to the $10 price.

I think this is the wave I am least excited about this year.

I would have to think that it's the same for almost all collectors. I mean, a) it's 99% repacks, and b) these are NOT vintage characters. The problem is that stores will order a ton of these, and they will sit on shelves and not move, which will lead to stores NOT putting out the next wave.
