Great wave! Sure we're bound to be getting comm tech Han Again, but the new R5 D4, Hem and even Garinden are exciting choices for me. Can't wait!

I also can't wait to see the new Hammer Head. The POTF2 one was just too big.

I'm not sure how I feel about obscure resculpts like Garindan.  The POTF2 one is fine by me, I'd rather have never before made characters.  But I'm sure this will be nice looking.  Hasbro's at the top of their game sculpt wise lately.

Hammerhead: He's my favorite alien probably ever, but I'm not sure he was begging for a resculpt.  That said, it will probably be much cooler than I'm imagining.

R5-D4: Hell freezes over.

Hem Dazon: Finally.  What happened to those Tonnkia twins?

Garindan: Wins the One Fig In Each Wave No One Cares About award.

Han: Hopefully it's the VOTC sculpt, since I don't have one open.

Luke: Pass.

Sandtrooper: I - gasp - have all the Sandtroopers I need.

R5-D4: I'll bite on this one and buy.

Hem Dazon: Ditto

Garindan:  I'll bite on this one too and buy.

Han: I see rehash on this one, so I'll probably pass.

Luke: Pass, unless it is SA.

Sandtrooper: If it beats the POTJ figure, I may get 2 or 3. If not, I can pass.

R5-D4- Maybe.

Hem Dazon- Buy.

Hammerhead- Maybe.

Imperial Sandtrooper- Buy.

Luke/Han/Garindan- Pass.

Seems like a pretty good wave.  :)

Sandtrooper - Can never have enough Santroopers.  I can't even recall what color pauldron the POTJ version had now.  Was it black too, or orange?  If this is the first single carded black one, then that definitely gets a big thumbs up.

POTJ was grey, and so was the post-OTC repack.

I hope the Saga2 version has all four variants (black, grey, white, orange). Right now if you want all the versions (and can't get your hands on that old Fan Club army builder set), you have to track down two Evolutions sets, the POTF2 cardboard Cantina, and POTJ/POTC, and so on and on....

Battle of Tatooine....was there a battle? ;)

You can bet there will be only one color of pauldron in regards to the sandtrooper, but yes, that army builder pack was the BEST four pack Hasbro put together.  The Endor rebel trooper gets my vote for worst BTW.

I kick myself for not loading up on them at the time....I think I only bought one set.   :(

Hem Dazon - #1 on my most wanted list. I really hope this guy pans out, and am curious to see what they'll do to him from the neck down.

R5-D4 - My #2! And it's about time too. Hopefully we'll se a couple variations downm the road. Oh and please don't screw him up again Hasbro.

Hammerhead - Not really seeing the point of this guy, I thought the POTF Hammerhead held up pretty well. Would have been nice to have seen somthing else that hasn't been done before, like Bom Vimdin or Elis Helrot or somthing. Oh well, give him some knee articulation and a great sculpt and I may buy.

Garindan - I guess it depends on how much better he is than hid POTF counterpart. Original Garindan wasn't too bad. I'll probably bite though, especially if he's as well sculpted as the guys from the hoth wave.

As for the Tonnikas, wasn't the rumor that they would be coming along with the rounded end of the bar or somthing? Have to wait and see, we still havn't got any news on the deluxe or screen scene front, if there will be any at all.

Maybe they will do color vaiations on the Sandtroopers like they have done with the recent Clone Troopers?  Good or bad idea?

The only color variations they could do on the Sandies is pauldron and maybe battle damage.  :P

R5-D4 - About damn time isn't?  Better late than never. 

Hammerhead - I love Hammerhead but would gladly have taken something new in his place.  Maybe this time he won't have a huge double-blaster rifle though.

Hem Dazon - Fantastic news! 

Luke - if he comes with the brown  poncho yes.  If not no. 

Garindan - Not really excited about him. 

Han - Depends but not looking forward to him at this point. 

Sandtrooper - No.

R5-D4- are we sure this is a new sculpt?

Hem Dazon- what is a Hem Dazon?  Is this a Tusken Raider or Jawa?

Hammerhead- Why doesn't he get a name?  But I'll snag one if it is a new sculpt.

Imperial Sandtrooper- hmmm Imperial Sandcastle Trooper...with an amazing 4 points of articulation...I'd buy 12 more Evo Packs before I bought 1 of these...why take 3 steps backwards in a non-movie year?

Garindan- if it is a new sculpt with the detail the POTF2 one had, AND SA then I can see some possibilities here.

Han and Luke- It needs to be VOTC HAN and Luke or otherwise there is no reason to EVER release these two again.
