And just like that, Entertainment Earth has pictures of Saga Wave 2 (Hoth Wave) up for your viewing pleasure...
Yes... Oh yes... Veers with removable armor, and I'm assuming a hat somewhere. Oh... Freaking... Yes.
Major Derlin's been one I've wanted for a while too, and he looks pretty sharp. I love the Gonk Droid tremendously, and was hoping they'd someday put another out on the pegs for us. I still buy the Commtech one if I see it really cheap just to have for background scenes. The AT-AT Driver is a figure that I personally never wanted to see redone, as I was perfectly happy with the POTF2 (kind of like the TIE Pilot), and honestly I don't think the new one looks better tremendously other than it's obviously a much more articulated version. He appears to be reusing parts perhaps? Or maybe it's my eyes.
On the repack front...
R2 is appearing to be either the VOTC sculpt or the Preview R4's sculpt being utilized? I'm a bit perplexed that they would re-release such a background character as Riekean, who was also a bit of a pegwarmer... He's not my favorite figure they've done but he suited his purpose as an old guy that stands there, mostly.
The Vader, is that VOTC sculpt or ROTS? And I'm disappointed to see the Saga Snowtrooper again which is a pre-posed, under-articulated figure that I've never liked much. An easy pass for me on most of the repacks, but if that's VOTC Vader I think it's nice to see it out there again... The R2 has me curious about it too.
The new figures look fantastic though, but I notice that again the articulation's limited. No leg articulation besides basic thigh joints. The Veers I could understand somewhat given all his gear but on Derlin it's a little annoying since he's kinda sparce looking. The AT-AT Driver's looking like he got the articulation budget for this wave.
