Question for anyone who ordered figs from Amazon: are your figures being shipped separately or altogether? I got an email from Amazon saying that my AT-AT Driver would ship first, followed by my Derlin and Veers, followed lastly by my Gonk. Wierd shipping schedule there, but at least I got to order some.

I didn't order the hoth wave, but I did recently order some figures from them. All 4 came together.

This is the best wave of figures in a long time, if you are an ESB fan. I wish they would have revisited Leia hoth while the opportunity was there.

Hoth Leia... that is a good choice.  I also wish we had gotten a good Snowspeeder pilot.

I have found the Hoth Wave a number of times but never in heavy abundance really.  The remnants are starting to get weird now.  For a while I only saw the new figures and few Gonks but now I'm seeing Gonks, Vaders, R2's...  I think they've shipped enough they're burning out a little bit...  Or I just have been lucky.

Fear not.

THe VOTC Luke is in X-Wing gear, there is actually a big difference between the two outfits. The Snowspeeder gear has a much thicker orange flightsuit with a big thick collar and the boots and gloves are grey and look more like the boots on a Hoth Trooper.

Yeah they're actually the same duds but Luke's sporting a heavy Orange flight coat over his jumpsuit, and then all the other gear on top of it, and plus his Hoth booties too.

Given Luke's size I almost hope they do a nice SA version of Luke but also a nice generic height pilot too...  Zev, Dak, Hobbie, WEdge...  Whatever, just so long as they at least do one nicely articulated and average height sculpt of the Snowspeeder pilot.

I wonder how VOTC Luke Pilot is gonna stack up in height to other figures.  Will he be short and thus not as spiffy fodder, or will he be improperly scaled but you may want extras to customize or whatever.

I'm almost hoping for the latter in a way. I've been picking up lots of Dutch Vanders lately, while the sculpt is great, I can't help but be a little disappointed in his funny arm pose and lack of articualtion. I'd really like a nice basic SA Rebel pilot as well. I'm going to pick up a few Lukes for sure, but if he is the correct scale I won't be picking up as many.

Yeah me too, haha...  I've actually sorta hoped he'd be a bit too tall.  I have tall Luke's all over the place, I can live with it.  A SA X-Winger body with a great average height wouldn't bother me in the slightest.  I'd deal with Luke overacheiving in his verticle ability. :)

I may get Rieekan and Derlin if they sit long enough, which they likely will.

They're already lingering around here. You should have no problem waiting.

Derlin is officially pegwarming at my closest Target. The same three have sat on the shelves for the last two weeks, weathering a mass of wave 1 returns during the TRU sale and subsequent wave 3 arrivals. There seems to be limited love for Cliffy, which I'm a bit surprised by. He's a nice figure.

If they would have given him the OTC version of the rebel blaster I would have cleared out pegs here, but they gave it the woefully undersized one instead.

Who's more than a little surprised that Veers is doing a bit of peg warming? It's been talked about, before the actual release, but I'm surprised it has come to pass.
