I hope they show up in more places. I just was at my local walmart and they didn't have any star wars except yarna.

I really want to look at these in person to decide if I want to grab them.

Re: Star Wars Vintage Wave 1 Released in Canada

Well, Wave 1 is out in Canada and already, we're getting pictures of Wave 2 offerings....

Here is our first look at the upcoming repacked Clone Commander Cody figure that will be released in The Vintage Collection. This particular version is the UGH chase variant with a silver foil cardback.

Re: Star Wars Vintage Wave 1 Released in Canada

I missed Dak. He must have been released as well.

And I found this description for him on BBTS:

1x Dak (not currently pictured): Ultimately proving incompatible withy the rigid discipline required by the Jedi Order, Dak left the order and attempted to convince female Cathar Jedi Juhani, whom Dak loved one-sidedly, to do the same. Disgruntled over the rejection and disillusioned in general, Dak, leaving Dantooine, was drawn to the Dark Side and was thusly prompted to join the Sith Academy on Korriban.

What a retcon, Dak was a Sith Agent - and all this time I thought he was just as Snow Speeder gunner
