From our Hasbro Q&A Wrap-Up & Images

I'm wagering the repaints will entice me to buy considering that Labria looks vastly improved.  it's one of those things like the Jawas or Tusken from OTC where I said no, then saw them and realized I'd feel bad if I didn't get them.

Aurra...  Meh I'll get her too, I can sense it.  The Royal Droid looks kinda cool.  Nice update to that little bugger.  Part of me kind of prefers Hasbro use a better figure to update ones like those and the Red Droid even though people wanted straight repacks on those...  Not for value mind you, mine are all loose, I just sorta dig having a better version.  R2-B1's always felt kind of lame up there with the new Astro's we got from the EE sets.

Easy passes for me. I have all of them, and the Aurra and Astromech just look blah.

I only really want the Astromech just because I'm a sucker for Astrodroids :)

The Aurra is interresting enough to use as another of her species. I may pick one up if I ever see one (Wallyworld exclusives are rather to ugh to come by when you live in a state with only 3 Walmarts :( ).

"The others" that suck...umm I guess that'd leave Aurra? I never read the comics so I won't buy her, she does look OK in a piratey way, I guess.

Mace's Droid is the only one I'll buy, since he was briefly shown in the Clone Wars toon in the wing of his ship, then soon after blown up...

The others I already have with different paint....thanks for making me buy Ktik at Kmart last year hasbro, with 2 other figures I had and 3 bar sections I already had....you #!%%!...

Actually been searching around photo archives for the Cantina Bar sections (since I don't have any) so I will only buy Mace's Droid & Kabe/The Other Guy. The Devil Guy dosen't look Star Warsy so no for him too. My mind is CHANGED! :P

Not too exciting of a wave. At least there are no openers for me.

Mace's droid is also the only one I will even consider getting from this group.

Why do I have the feeling that one will be the hardest to find...

The paint apps are okay by me.  I think that the Nabrun Leids repaint is actually quite good.  But what bothers me about this wave is that it's a WalMart exclusive.  WalMart doesn't have a great track record in managing their exclusives, and when it comes to the Basic Figure line it gets to be even more of a concern.

I do seem to recall a collective groan rising from the crowd at the Comic Con Q&A on Friday upon hearing the news that this wave is exclusive to WalMart.  Target would have been a much better venue for these, but it seems as though Hasbro wants to throw WalMart a bone.  It seems that staying in WalMart's good graces is a big concern for any company that wants shelf space in their stores.  Unfortunately though, it seems that Star Wars shelf space has been diminishing at Wally World.  Ugghhh.

Although I wasn't at the comic con, I'm groaning too. I like all these figures, even if they are just repaints. I love the cantina and there can never be too many aliens! However, I can't stand store exclusives. Online exclusives, I don't mind....but to have to go to the store over and over waiting for them to show up just sucks. To make this worse, these have to be a Wal-Mart exclusive. Of all of the places, they're THE WORST when it comes to exclusives (well, any figures for that matter). The 2 that are closest to me are both the 24 hr. kind, so guys are there all times of the day and night waiting for the stuff to be put out. I'm sorry, I have a life to lead and can't do that! I've never seen the Twins, the CW Animated 3 packs, or any of the new Marvel Legends exclusives. I don't know if its poor distribution, horrible workers, or me just not being there at the right moment to get them. Target is not as bad since they'll always go in the back and get it for you if you plug in the DCPI and it shows them in stock. K-Mart is usually dead, so I've never had a problem finding anything there. Oh well, I might have to pick these up on eBay ::)

(edit: I just changed the name back to Wal-Mart is all-JJ)

Is the paint deco on Kitik Keedk'ak new, or is it just a straight re-release from the 3-pack?  Repaints of Cantina inhabitants can work, unfortunately, because it could simply be a second individual from the same species :-\  It's looking more like I may buy the better part of this wave. :-[
