....since they're all re-releases of figures we already have? Especially since the original 5 packs seem to still be readily avalible.
I'd like to say I'll pass and be happy to take a break from hunting down a wave, but I can imagine myself getting them if I see them on the shelf......but then again, the REALLY good stuff will be in wave 5, so maybe I will save.

My first post. I can't wait till wave 4 come out. I think I like the single carded ones better.

I agree but in my opinion those Air Troopers are worth getting, I don't care about the other though.

They'll do just fine, especially since theres individual card art this time. I've been selling the 5 pack figs loose with no problem, even after they saturated the market with them. Some people only want a certain character and not the entire sets.

at the stores all i find are the 5 packs sitting on the shelves, i think there are a lot of collectors out there that buy the single carded figures only for display in the package, they are the ones that will scoop up wave 4

IMO I think it would be an even bigger blow to all the 5 packs sitting around in the shelves when the wave hits. I seem to find them everywhere just collecting dust.

I prefer the single carded figs and now I regret buying the 5 packs.

I sure hope they're not popular. More for me! :p

I think these will sell far better then the five packs.

Most collectors bought the five packs to open and display loose; I know I did. But carded figures have double appeal - first as a loose, displayable figure and secondly as a carded display piece.

Most collectors I personally know are seeking two of every carded figure for that very reason. This wave is terrific because you can now get that carded figure fix, for $5. To me, this is like being a kid back in 86 all over again - WHEN I can actually find these on the pegs.

So, yes, these will do just as well as the other impossible-to-find singles.

I already have all of these figures loose, so I will get them to keep carded with the exception of the air trooper who I plan on buying multiples of.

I already got these guys, but will get all eight of Wave 4 to have carded figures to display.

They'll be just as popular. Plus it would not surprise me if the action figures themselves were slightly different than the five-packs, meaning you can tell by the paint job whether it was a five-pack or single card release.

I know that I'll be buying them. I guess they will sell just as well as the other single carded figures.

I agree totally; I think these are gonna be a huge hit for the holidays. They look cool, and I bet many of these will end up as kids' stocking stuffers.

Except Hasbro has made no mention of this, and to do so would be nothing but increased cost for them. I highly doubt there will be any repainting.

I imagine they'll sell quickly at first, but will gradually start peg warming a bit. I only plan on getting Destro, Storm Shadow and the Air Trooper.

I will buy them to get a complete set like all of you and try to sell them for 2,000 a figure in 25 years....if the world does not end in 2012.
