Everything looks pretty good so far, and looking forward to the show. I like the designs of the characters, especially Zeb and Agent Kallus.

Kind of a bummer to read some of the commentary about the fate of CW characters and some PT, like R5-X2. To be expected I guess. I wish they had gotten to R5 in the Amazon set. Anyways, back on topic, Zeb looks like a lot of fun and I love the trooper.

I also really like the Sidious set. I wasn't overly thrilled with the TVC version and modified him with the Bust Up.

The Snowtrooper looks amazing and I plan to buy a few of him. Maul even looks pretty good.

Way more fisher price adventure people than Kenner. A little bit of a bummer.

First shot of the Kanan figure and some more Lego details here:

Found quite a bit of SL wave 2 at target and TRU in the last two days. I pretty much like them all though I do think this boba fett is a miss. The one in the three pack was better IMHO. Didn't figure id like Rex and Cody but found them both pretty neat.

Yeah I think the NBXMAS figs came off well but not sure on the others yet... will wait to see better pics. Kudos for the aggressiveness of the line though.

Yeah these are out in full force here in Iowa and not moving. Naturally wave 2, where the movie figures come into it, will be HTF as a result.  Then again it's early, so we'll see. Not a good sign so far though.

I can kind of see Eisenberg, in the mold of the character he played in Social Network. Luthor as young, petulant genius, as opposed to what we've traditionally seen. It could work. It depends entirely on the story. Luthor as a corporate threat to Bruce Wayne could be the way these two cross paths. Jeremy Irons has always been a tremendous actor, and him as Alfred offers some new avenues. Could work. would not have been the route I would have gone, but then none of these choices so far have been, so par for the course. We'll see.

I always like Frankenstein things and he's definitely a hodge podge. Looking forward to the show.

Found two cases of the new wave at Wally last night. Paint apps are definitely hit and miss so it was nice to have lots to choose from. I like these sets a lot, especially 3-PO/R2.

Unless you already own it, in which both of these cases you do (Grievous is paired with the SL Obi Wan and Luke with the MS Vader).

Good find. Hopefully that bodes well for around here.  What did everyone think of the pics of Obi/Grievous and Bespin Luke/Vader? I thought Grievous was a yawner, but Luke is great. Too bad we have to pay $10 for him, since Vader is a straight repack. Both him and Grievous are figures that could serve as single releases, so I'm not sure why they're pairing them with repacks, and it stings to still being paying $10 a figure when the point of this line was not to do that.

That also had me thinking. Why Wedge, and then Dack? We'll see I guess.
