I'll take 2. Nothing a little re-painting can't fix. :-*

With Targets clearing them out, I decided I would open a Tarkin/trooper pack. My Tarkin has a deformity in his head mold, leaving a crater above his right ear. Now he's in some spacey green gymnastic outfit, AND he has cranial leakage. There's $7.00 I won't be getting back...  :-\

The Luke/R2 pack looks good along with Vos! No picks of Luke and Mara yet?

Galactic Hunter has posted high res images of Wave 2. And from the looks of things, the Vos/Villie pack is pure and utter crap. Both are way too skinny and have no leg articulation, and the heads aren't that great either. Luckily the other two sets are fantastic. I'm very much looking forward to the Obi-Wan/ARC Trooper set.

I'll agree that the lack of knee articulation is disappointing, but ball-jointed elbows and shoulders are great to see.  The sculpts look great to me, especially Quinlan Vos - from those pics, it's a great likeness.

I think Vos looks alright, about what I expected.  But I'll definitely give him some articulated knees and do a little painting to give him thicker eyebrows and more sunken in looking eyes.

 :P

Quinlan Vos- About what I expected from Hasbro. You know, he's okay, but from the other stuff I've seen Hasbro do, I know he could be far better. Well, as I say that, from the other stuff I've seen Hasbro do, I know he could've been far worse, too. He's certainly good...enough...

Villie (no clue what the name is or how to spell it)- He's unique, I'll give him that. That's about all I'll give him.  :-\

Alpha- Very cool. The 'wind effect' manskirt will probably be bothersome after a while, but that is totally made up for by the great articulation and detail. He's the definitive ARC Trooper.

Obi-Wan- Thank God for Hasbro not giving him yellow hair, otherwise I would've butchered them ruthlessly.  :) It's pretty cool, a softgoods cloak would've been better because thanks to the permanent 'cloak arms' he has he needs to remain cloaked at all times. He's pretty good, we can't say any other AOTC Obi's are this good so we're just gonna have to live with it...

Luke- Alright, I still am not the biggest fan of the VOTC Stormy sculpt, I'm not gonna explain why because I already have three hundred times...so I can definitely say without a doubt that I am not a huge fan of this figure. It would probably have been a reluctant buy if not for it coming with...

R2-D2- We do not need another R2!!! Waste of money, killed this set! That being said, I will definitely purchase him if he is a clean repaint of R4-G9. We'll just have to see...

Looks like the stickersheet for the new Hasbro Figure Stands has sort of confirmed a few of the rumored packs...

A'Sharad Hett and Assassin Droid are both on there, I guess we can consider them (and their 2-packs) confirmed now.   :)

Headsculpts on Vos and Villie are all wrong ... Vos' skintone is too light as well.

That's funny.  Silly Hasbro confirming your rumor lists.  Which one was the assassin droid though.

We were able to get some mega-sized images of two of the upcoming Wave 2 sets - Marvel Star Wars #4 and Star Wars Republic #55.



Just clicky on the images above to check out the pics...
