I hope that Durge and Anakin are straight re-packs, no need for new sculpts on either of them.

Looks like Durge has a new head to me.

Actually Durge looks to be an all new figure and has a removable helmet too.

Wow. Durge looks really bad. Anakin looks cool, but I'm never gonna need another Anakin after the one in Wave 1. Too bad.

What if that Anakin has the new hips AND ball jointed elbows?

What is up with Hasbro and not giving some figures knee articulation?

I don't know... but it seems lame to choose ankle articulation over knees...

What are you talking about? I display my figures standing on their toes all the time (some poses may require additional support).  :P

I'm not totally sold that there isn't knee articulation there.  Hasbro's tricky when it comes to armored figures, so I'm not going to hollar before I'm hurt on that one just yet...  I agree though, the ankle joints are apparant, and if they're there without knees, that's always been a pet peeve of mine with Hasbro.

They did it with Sora Bulq, Neimoidan Warrior, Heir to the Empire Luke, and others.  It's really some terrible decision-making by Hasbro designers, and something I believe's been addressed in Q&A...  If it hasn't, it ought to be anyway.

And yet, Commander Cody got knee joints, but they sculpted his ankles in such a horribly pre-posed fashion that he turned out to be one figure that really needed those points of articulation.  Same with the Training Fatigues Clonetrooper out now...  Go figure.

Bummer. Durge is all new. For once I'd wish they'd do a little more re-packing. :P

So if the Durge/Anakin comic pack and the Ventress/Skorr pack are both delayed, was there a wave planned between the Mouse+Basso/Commando+SBD/Jundland+Shan wave that's shipping now and that one?

On the one hand if they're going to ship several rounds of the wave that's currently shipping now, that will offer plenty of opportunities to army build the Commando & SBD set (which is good), but on the other, it probably means LOTS of left over on the other two sets (which is bad).

Maybe. Depends on the hat in the Imp Officer set. If they're easily transferable, I might be in for a couple.
