Quick thoughts:

*It's hard to tell from the pic, but that VOTC Sandperson's cloak looks awfully, awfully poofy

*Looks like that carded Anakin on the bottom row in the back is one of the "Bounty Hunt' foil things

*For the love of God, could they pose the new Threepio on the throne so we could see that he really has articulated knees?

*Chief Chirpa!

*Looks like the new Moff Jerjerrod and Death Star Gunner behind Chirpa and Yoda, too.

That second Jedi wave is supposed to be:

Chief Chirpa
Moff Jerjerrod
Death Star Gunner
C-3PO: Ewok Deity
Luke Skywalker: Endor Confrontation
Darth Vader: Endor Confrontation
The Emperor
Endor Rebel Commando

I see everything in the pic except for the Endor Rebel Commando (assuming the Luke, Vader, and Emperor figures are from this wave).

Luke is not there...according to the early RS reports he was supposed to be a retooled Endor Version

That Luke is part of the Carkoon 5-Pack

What's that thing with Tatooine Luke? Looks likes a Fender amp or something...

Cantina Han has got something odd too...is that supposed to be a Cantina table?

The DS Gunner looks suspiciously like the POTF2 version if you look closely...

Jerjerrod looks like he uses the Veers body... sweetness.

I'm going to have to disagree with you there. The Jerjerrod doesn't appear to have the holster Veers has and he coloring looks different. Even in this small resolution if you look closely you can tell that the gunner has a bit more texture and the pose is differet so it is definitely and all new figure.

As for that little, Cantina table/stool thing with Han, it appears Momow Nadon (the Ithorian) has the same one. I like how they are packing in some of these bigger accessories, they are great for dioramas. :)

I'm with speedermike in that this seems a bit dull.

Chirpa and Jerjerrod look like welcomed additions and a new Death Star Gunner is ok.  I'm loving the VOTC myself.  I can't tell on the cloak of the Tusken that Bill Cosby mentioned being poofy, not by the pic there, but Han looks a bit clearer and really quite nice at least from far away.  I can't wait for those at least...  Gives me something limited to really look forward to.

I'm a big Ewok fan too so Chripa rocks, I just wish they'd do Ewok army builders using Teebo's body and Wicket's hood with a plethora of random weapons (clubs, spears, axes, slings, bows, quivers, etc.).  Include multiple hoods of different colors and Teebo bodies in different fur colors/patterns and to me you've got probably one of the best quality army builders of all time in the line despite the character's dubious popularity.

I'm an Ewok fan though, bring on more I say. :)

But...  Yeah, there's just not a lot there to go wow over.  And if that's the POTF2 Weequay there then who honestly gives a ****?

I see a whole lot of commentary around the net about how Hasbro's re-releases are smart and things, yet figures like the Weequay were never popular on the pegs so I don't get when they make a reappearance in anything be it a battlepack or basic card.

It's like the Saga HOF wave with Bacara over a properly decoed Bly...  Makes NO sense since more people want and need Bly, and it's tough to say one is more popular than the other as a character other than to say that Bly was a bitch for a lot to find, especially with the right paintjob...  And a lot of the rest of that wave just weren't BIG sellers or have better figures Hasbro could release as the true "Hall of Fame" that people want.

Whatever though, this company's proven absolutely nothing logical to me.

I was at TRU tonight and it's wall-to-wall Carkoon here...  Safe to say the pegwarming has begun in my area.  Hoth's abundant at Target, and I'm seeing stuff sit at Wal-Mart...  I'm getting to the point the ROTS hype is done and Hasbro's gonna shoot itself in the foot with the line if they're not careful how they handle ****.

Love Chirpa, the DS gunner, Jerjerod and those VOTC guys.  I had hoped to see more, and maybe there will be come Sunday.  I really want to know what the Naboo wave looks like, if there will be more VOTC, and how many figs there will be this year.

If you look closely 3-P0 has the entire ewok throne packaged with him... so I would assume his knees are articulated, or Hasbro really screwed us.

You can make out the antenea on the DS Gunner!

Nice tease. The VOTC Luke looks like it's going to have unusually wide legs though. ??? Can't wait to see close up pictures.

Those pics remind me of the 4th of July!

That DS Gunner looks great.

And 3-P0 has ball jointed knees!

And pics of the Vehicles, including Kit's Fighter.
