Hasbro finally put together a great wave!!! And I thought this years Coruscant wave was good. Well, here's my thoughts on the figures in this wave, even though ya'll most likely don't care:
Airborne Commando: I really like this guy. The removable pouch is a very nice touch. I don't like how he has the older style Clone Trooper rifle, while the Galactic Marine has the Evolution Set rifle.
Concept Storm Trooper: I really want to pick up at least two of these guys. I saw the original once in a Target, but this guy blows the old one out of the water. I really hope that he's not short packed.
Super Battle Droid: Wow. That was a surprise. This is a great looking figure. I'm definitely getting two to go with R2, but maybe another 20 if the flames are removable. Now all we need is a Battle Droid similar to that.
Mace Windu: He looks pretty well detailed. I like the lightning on his lightsaber, and I'm so glad Hasbro gave him a soft goods cloak. Hopefully his articulation is similar to that of Pilot Obi-Wan Kenobi, or at least Evolutions Anakin.
Obi-Wan Kenobi: Now i won't feel bad about buying a repack. I like the breating apparatus and the new electro-pole, and I'm glad that his mouth is not too big. He may go great with the Demise of Grievous figure. The picture on his card is pretty sweet, as well.
Galactic Marine: An excellent figure, I'll say. Perhaps the best of this wave. I really think that the Super Articulation and Removable Back Pack are nice touches. I have the same issue with the rifle as the Airborne Commando, though.
R2-D2: A cool figure that will look nice next to two of those Super Battle Droids. I like the rocket jets better than those on the Revenge of the Sith R2.The paint job on this new one is kind of funky looking, in my opinion.
Lava Miner: Why couldn't the Mustafar Sentry be this good? Oh well, they'll go nice together. I hope the lave bucket can come off of the grabbing tool. That would be cool.
