I haven't bought a single Saga 06 figure yet. Just burnt from the ROTS line I guess. I'm sure I'll pick something up at some point. These on the other hand. I'll be all over these regardless on if they're chase or not.
The most prized possession of my entire star wars collection is my Sega Trilogy Special Edition Pinball Machine.

I was reading the story over at Scum...  I like how they start it out like there were people saying this was BS...  Not sure where they got that idea or if they're just wanting to sensationalize nothing, but whatever.

Sounds like some cool figures...  Greedo sounds like he's as bad as ever.  I don't get him as a choice really.  Hell, a 21 back Fett with ESB colors would've been cooler but that's me.

Then again, how cool would a Death Squad Commander have been?  I just don't get their choice of Greedo at all but Hasbro seems to have this hard-on for that character.  At least it's not the CT figure repacked.

Yeah, right.  They'll be a pain in the ass to get for those guys, but I don't see the price going up much.

The descriptions sound great to me. I look forward to these, if I'm still in the hobby at that point. :P

I'm noticing red "X's" over at RS, were there pictures at on time of the figures?

That was what I was wondering?  I don't know?  They probably have the pics I would assume or the figures themselves. 

I really don't mind the choice of Greedo.  I want that cardback at least.  I just don't know why they are not making some more of these figure?  If they are then that is an odd choice for only 5 figures. 

I was thinking SA Snowtrooper and Luke Bespin for sure.  Who knows?  Maybe they have some evolutions sets coming later?

I'm disappointed in two of the choices:

Luke X-Wing and Greedo.

I'm fairly happy with my POTJ Luke release and Greedo was done pretty well in the Commtech line - good enough anyway.

I, too, would have rather seen a Snowtrooper, Luke Jedi, Darth Maul (yes I said it), or a Death Squad Commander.

Come to think of it, a VOTC Emperor might be kind of cool too.

I'm really happy that we'll likely be getting more of these now, hopefully everyone will be able to find what they need though.  The Han (Endor), Luke X-Wing, and Scout Trooper are all ones I've really been looking forward to...and the Tusken Raider sounds like it could be great too.  Greedo seems like an odd choice to me too, but I'll probably pick it up regardless.  I just always liked this entire concept, despite the higher price and some figures that were a little wonky the first time around, and if I didn't collect anything else I think I'd still get these.  I wish they'd continue doing more after this, and maybe they will, but the lack of an ESB wave seems strange.  It seems like the movie most (or many) people like the best, and there are more than enough figures to do from the Hoth sequence alone.  We'll see I guess.  Time for a new update Hasbro :).
