I'm pretty excited about any of these that aren't painted up in fluorescents.  I know it's stylistic, but come on...

If it generally looks like a regular figure, I'm down.

I agree...  The Marvel figures really didn't do a thing for me...  I understand it was maybe their way of seeing how EU with some "familiarity" would fly at retail though, I think it was fairly calculated that the Marvel figures were all known film characters just looking funky...  Cheap easy way for Hasbro to dip their toe in the pond and all, haha.  But they just fell flat with me...  The new stuff though is incredible.  I may not even like the EU it's from but I'm pretty sure I'll always buy the 2-pack as long as the figure(s) look nice and realistically styled.

I don't dig a lot of stuff from EU but I'm kinda looking forward to it...  That Infinities set for instance.  I have no interest in that comic, but those figures are rockin'.

Would you believe my local TRU just got Wave 1 for the first time?  Good lord it's going to be a long wait for the next waves.  ::)

Scored my Vos set at Target.  ;D  There were 2 more on the shelf plus I saw another 2 sets at Walmart yesterday.  I'm sure I saw at least 1 set of Luke at both stores, but there could've been more.  Still nada on the Alpha set.

Oooh... it's Baron Fel and Derek "Hobbie" Klivian.   

I know some were hoping for Wedge, but I'm thrilled to get another Rogue pilot!  ;D

Loving that Baron Fel pack... Nice to see more EU Imperials. The Wave 3 packs look really nice with the close up shots... Getting that Mara pack for sure. The ESB Infinities pack looks great, loved that comic and the figures rock too... Vader's got the AOTC Anakin head underneath. Neat stuff.

I haven't read Infinites, but why does Vader have Anakin's AotC's head... did he not get crispied by Obi-Wan? If not, why the armor?

Ok, so it's Hobbie.  That's cool.  I wanted him too.  But COME ON, Hasbro.  Wedge!   :)

Anyone else think the lack of Wedge actually bodes well in a way?  I mean, they give us Hobbie but not Wedge who is Fel's polar opposite in that story arc?  I guess my point being...  Anyone else think a second Rogue Squad may be happening for the comic line?

That's a great way of looking at it. But, that's it for this year right?  We've seen everything haven't we?

I think this is everything for this year, but they might already have comic packs in development for next year.  Sounds like its a pretty successful line for them.

Until next year when they announce the TRU exclusive Wedge Antilles w/X-Wing-Death Star I just got my a$$ shot and I'm getting the hell out of here before I get killed battle damage-but that might be a little wordy  :P  How's the arm articulation on the Luke?  Is it actually swivel and not ball jointed like Vos or Nelvaan Anakin?
