Remarkably we've seen very little of this wave.  Yet Rieekan, Veers and Derlin are all seriously peg warming already.  It's kind of bizarre, to be honest.  I'd think Veers cool because you can have two versions pretty easily that look reasonably different enough.  Derlin's fine, though you'd only need one, but at least it's another Hoth officer of sorts and a totally new figure.  Rieekan makes sense, no doubt, given we still have deluxe on the pegs here.

I ran into some of these yesterday, and I had to get another AT-AT driver. The repack waves I have seen listed do not include figures from this wave, except the UGH silver AT-AT driver and the hoth Vader we will all be swimming in by Thanksgiving. Things are always subject to change, but I would suggest grabbing a set if you see them. They are worthy of hanging carded next to the 2004 OTC set.

I was just looking at R2 again, and noticed that the cardback scene has C-3PO talking to him in the corrdior, but he has been effected out! A cool way to make the figure and the cardback work together- nice touch Hasbro! Now if I could just find these galactic hunt figures without driving my truck in to the ground...

Yeah, I enjoyed that little detail, too! ;D

OK, I applaud Hasbro for continuing to ship Vader for the kiddies and being that I have multiples from my Coruscant and Hoth cases, I decided to open one of the Vaders for Junior. 

What a mistake that was. 

First of all, the helmet does not stay on, it is pointless.  Secondly, his hands are not designed to hold the lightsaber! 

My son is constantly coming to me to help him put the helmet back on and somehow fit the saber into his hand(s).

If you're going to put a Vader on the pegs for the kiddies, please make sure it has some play value and does not irritate the hell out of the child and parent!

Well put. I find it funny that Hasbro constantly harps on the notion that their SW products are intended for children, but when you see their product in action with their supposed intended audience, it's just not kid friendly. Whoops. All they needed to do was repackage the Evo Vader and that would have been avoided. Ugh.

Digging up this oldie but goodie.  I've been seeing more refresh figures from the Battle of Hoth wave recently.  It had been mostly R2-D2, the Power Droid and AT-AT Drivers.  But today I started seeing some more of General Veers with the red hologram.  Strange.  I hadn't seen this figure in a while, and oddly enough with all of the pegwarming Moff Jerjerrods out there, General Veers looks a lot better now.

I've noticed the comeback as well. I'm debating on whether or not to pick up some move Veers' for customizing.

The Hoth wave has been clogging pegs for months here in the DC area......   I guess now that it's Winter, they figure that reshipping the Hoth wave is appropriate?

I think Derlin is one of the most underrated figures ever.  I'm shocked at how much he pegwarmed.  I bought 4 of him and headswapped 2 to make a couple of hatless Rebel officers inside the control room.
