COOL! Luke!
Han- Wow,it isn't Cantina!

Luke- Great looking figure!

Wedge- Eh, I'd prefer VTSC Luke body but I don't have a Wedge so beggers can't be choosers

DST- I like it! Hopefully there'll be a head variation

Rebel- Good more Rebels for my troops to kill!

Boba Fett- Best of the wave!

I'm picking up every figuire. So fdar '07 is the best year ever!

The head looks a little...wierd...but I think this is one of those figures that will look much better in person.

I like them, they look good, although, with the Rebel Pilot helmets, can they make the chin straps thinner? I think that was my main problem with the VTSC Luke pilot.

Wow! Thanks Matt, those are really nice pics! compartment in boba? Looks like maybe a thermal detonator on the flip down door or maybe some kind of droid brain?

wonder if these are final versions? The detail in the fire looks incredible. I'm really impressed with all the shown head sculpts..to me, it almost seems as though Hasbro is using a new designer or has newer team members...the paint apps look really refreshing/new? to me too..I wonder

If these are final versions than this will likely be one of my best waves/lines ever
hands down as far as paint, sculpt and artic.. Look at those elbow joints on a couple of those figs...I distinctly remember Hasbro saying they don't like doing that style in QandA's. Looks like someone had a change in philosophy..Q is.. how will it affect my wallet?

...Biggs...
Same damn thing...they're both semi- important x-wing pilots.

Swivel elbows on Han? Why? They had the whole damn VOTC body already, why go through the trouble of creating new arms? Ah well, it's still a good looking figure. Looks like he's missing ankle articulation as well, meaning the sculpted new legs?

Luke looks good from the head down. I hope that either it looks much better in person or they use the VOTC/VTSC headsculpt. I'm digging it though, that holster looks awesome.

No Artoo, Wedge and Biggs is NOT the same thing. Biggs dies in ANH, while Wedge lives, and takes down the first AT-AT Walker in ESB, and helps Lando blow up the SECOND Death Star, semi-important pilot , yeah right

YAVIN FOUR looks fantastic by the way!!!

AWESOME! my favorite by far is the cremony luke.

PERFECT wave. as of now, i see nothing that is fair game for negative comments by me. (although the DST's wide legs are a point of concern)

if hasbro could make EVERY wave next year as good as the first two look, it will be a SUPER year. besides the obi-wan and R2 in Wave 1, i see no figures i plan on NOT buying. YAY, and thanks Hasbro!  ;D

wow, im just thrilled and amazed that the big H didnt screw up like I thought they would.

once again, i am REALLY, REALLY excited for that luke. he looks like one of the best figs ever. is that han solo votc? doesnt look like it, but the articulation and sculpt still look on par with it.

I still can't believe what I'm seeing for the first two waves... I feel like I must be dreaming.

Someone wake me if I am.

I agree, these are friggin' fantastic.  Hopefully all of the "Saga Legends" repacks will keep profits high so that the new stuff can be created on this level.  Great, great wave.

I'm wondering if Hasbro will realize that there would be a nitch/nostalgia market for that DST painted grey.

If the rest of the McQuarrie figs are this top shelf, this will be my favorite collecting year ever!  And I've been doin' it since 1978!

Tell me about it! :D

So far, these look like the best 2 waves EVER, at least in my opinion. Next year will surely be amazing!

They do look very nice.    For me: 

Fett - I really wanted the poncho...ala...Clint Eastwood look but it's still a very cool looking figure IMO.  The dart - stomach thing is great!  I actually like the flame to.

Han - Eh, I don't care for the swivel joints on the arms....glad they sort of repacked a VOTC Han though.  I will get it...if nothing else for the Han Solo coin. and nifty cord/headset :) 

Luke - It looks good enought to pick up another for me...I'm kind of a sucker for the OT anyway.  It does look better than I thought it would be.

Death Star Trooper - I just think that's badass....I will have to buy about 4 of those at least. 

Sentry - Funky enough background guy for me.  I will get the mandatory 2 for sure. 

Biggs - Eh, removeable helmet will get me to buy it and the coin.  I like the Dutch Vander mold on those X-Wing pilots anyway.  Come on Hasbro...you know you want to release Wedge at retail....just do it!
