Lando is a great figure, POTJ great.  Madine is too, but he's a little dull.  Still glad they made him and these two figs make me very happy.  Han... okay.  Hasbro seems very intent on making us happy and they certainly have this year.  Kudos.

Cool packaging.  Still not buying them.

That's a good idea, Muftak, and would work brilliantly this year with the DVD's.  Will all these great OT figs (Hoth, Jabba, etc.) be available for people who get reinterested by the DVD?  Should they have held the HoF until then so the OT core characters are right there waiting?

The idea of this asortment makes sense, but maybe more around the time of the DVD, and with some different choices:

Obi Wan - Gets yours at your local KB right now.  May be wishful thinking, but peppering this wave with one or two new figs might have been smart, and this would have been an ideal time for Trophy Obi.

Anakin - KB Part 2.  Plus, he's coming with the glass.  

Chewbacca - Sigh.  The Saga one would have made more sense, or even the Anniversary one.

R2 - A good fig but the Holo Leia version was better and more desired.  A no brainer.

Vader - Good choice, but would have been another opportunity to do cancelled Cd-Rom Bespin Vader.

Luke - May be time for a new Tatooine Luke.  (Ducks)

Leia - CommTech, Hasbro.  CommTech.

Han - I guess the best version of this outfit.

Maul - Maul always sells, around here anyhow.

Yoda - Yoda always sells, too.

Stormtrooper - The best choice in the lot.

C-3PO - The second best.

One figure they could repack in every wave as far as I'm concerned is the SA Clone.  It didn't get near enough distribution, and I know people would buy tons of 'em.

That would be very cool.  I do like the animated cards.

The GD.com seems to think a Balrog is coming, but is playing footsy.  I'm going to go out on a limb and say yeah, it's coming.

Update: Now the GD seems to think a Balrog ISN'T coming.  That site has always been a little bit whichever the way the wind was blowing, but earlier today he had to take down news about the Balrog because someone ordered him to.  Huh?

I kind of thought this too.  I thought the new wave every month meant those figs were in and out in a month, but it doesn't seem that way at all.  If they sell, they sell, but Dignitaries and nightclub patrons are warming pegs here too.

I'll tell 'em!   ;)  Gougers...

In hopefully better news, arwen idolizer over at the lordoftheringsguide.com forums claims thusly:

now for really really big news:

"we will be getting a massive

28" inch fell beast!!!!
no lie. he said it. it is supposed to hit retail in the summer

and now for a big, boom bastic suprise.

a beautiful 5 pack gift pack of gondor. due out in july

will consist of all coronation outfits of:
aragorn
arwen
eowyn
eomer
and exclusive faramir!"

This comes from a TB CSR.  If it's true, and I have no reason to doubt the poster, I'll die of shock.

I like them too.  To me this particular incarnation of the SW card is the best, aside from vintage.  I do hope we get some nice accessories once in a while, though.

I may actually complain to Target about price gouging.  The MSRP on these is $4.99, right?

I think it's possible that list is legit.  A lot of those figures are headswaps or using pieces from previous figures, like:

Elendil / Isildur: King Aragorn body

Gil-Galad: PEW body and weapons

Theodred: Eomer body

Moria Archer: Moria Orc? or Orc Warrior?
