Whee! Legacy comic figures!  :)

I'm surprised they're giving Xizor another go-round. That dude hung around locally until the TPM toys came out.

Talon Kardde/Thrawn-SWEET. Kardde loks great and has excellent customizing potential. Thrawn looks like a seriously good upgrade. And look KNEE JOINTS!!!! Now why the hell couldn't they have done that for the Death Star conference room set??
Xizor/Leia-Okay, I'll bite. It's looks good.
Endor Leia/White Vader-meh, good niche product though, I'll get it.
Cade Skywalker/Darth Talon-Friggin SWEET!!! I've been highly anticipating figures from the Legacy comics.

Thumbs up from me!

Wow!  I can not get over how good Xixor looks.  I like Karde and Thraw.  Vader white looks pretty funky.  I am not into that Legacy comic but those figures from it look  extremely good.

The one with Leia is Tobbi Dala. I am gussing the one with Dengar is supposed to be Jodo Kast.

That Darth Talon figure looks amazing. I can't wait to add that to my collection. I have Sith Lords on my desk at work so I will definitely be buying an extra of that set so I can add her to my desk.

The one with Dengar is Fenn Shysa, another Mando from the Marvel books.

Yeah, I'm kind of excited for this.

Other than this and the new Admiral, there's not a whole lot here that I'm actually familiar with.

Anyone else ecstatic to see a new Hoth Leia or just me?

No real mention of it, but I'm guessing she means we're getting a new basic movie version before too long...  She was sorely in need of a resculpt, and may also mean Torryn Far headsculpt is indeed on the way as I think was rumored (?).

I'm debating on the Marvel sets with the Mando's...  Unless their paint aps improve a little, they're a tad bland for my liking and I may pass.  The Dark Horse stuff is amazing looking, especially Karrde/Thrawn.  The Legacy set is meh...  I really can't say I dig Leia/Vader either, as that's really not my cup of tea and I'd only want it for the gun.  ::)

The other stuff, fantastic.

JJ,

That Hoth Leia appears to be the old POTF2 sculpt with a belt holster & new head. Look at the pose and lack of articulation. I hope I am wrong, but there is no mistaking that arm stance. I will buy both sets for the Mandos even if they look a bit generic. I am a surprised they are using the Evo Jango & Boba bodies so soon. I will melt down the purple people eater Denger with a heat gun for fun, so much for a bendy knee upgrade. I wish they would stop with the Marvel comic packs, the novelty has worn off. Shame that the Jabba Marvel set was not shown, maybe it's not coming or they are saving for SDCC.
The rest of the sets are very exciting, that Xizor is really nice. I hope to see a new Dash Rendar & Snoova down the road.....

I'm really excited for the Imperial Knights and Darth Talon/Cade Skywalker comic packs. The Infinities Vader/Leia and Xizor/Leia ones were thrown out of left field and they look great! I'm glad none of these are exclusives.
I remember my dream now.

It's definitely the POTF2 Hoth Leia torso and arms. The head looks almost to be the same too, the pics I've seen have not been definitive on that, could be the VTAC Endor Leia. The legs too are questionable, some pics I've seen show it to be POTF2 others show it to have knee joints. This would have been the perfect time for an all new sculpt that they could have refreshed into the basic carded wave. I'm disappointed myself, oh well...

Here it shows a new head (with comm headset) and possibly new lower arms as she's wearing gloves.
