I'm with you on the Biggs figure, Scott. I'm bothered by that sculpt... I'm not satisfied with the Wedge that uses it, and Biggs will annoy me some too. It's not definitive... Maybe something to bring up to Hasbro at some point there. It is definitely taller and stands out. Hell with Luke there it looks akward.
The Han's arms are a surprise... I'm ok with it, it's still very poseable, but just seems odd to resculpt that. Did anyone else notice that Han either has a NEW blaster sculpted for him, or he's using the one his Hoth figure had?
And finally Luke!
-Luke Ceremonial... Outstanding sculpt. The head's paintjob seems iffy... Articulation seems fantastic, and it's nice to see Hasbro heeding the question they got asked about the new "holsters" being a sort of standard. The thigh-strap adds a ton of realistic detail IMO.
Oh, and now in the new picture the Rebel Guard has a RFT's blaster while in the Lee's photo he has Bo Shek's...
I'm assuming these are hand-painted prototypes. You can tell mostly by the paint being so thick and vibrant, and the joints not fitting together as well as production stuff does... Great photos though to give us an idea of what we have coming. This is a wave of home runs to me so far.
The likes of which we haven't seen since 2004's Cantina Wave if you ask me. 2005 had some great stuff in it though, don't get me wrong, but the fact this is all classic, includes great resculpts and obscurity... And it's all top-quality it seems too... Man this is why I still collect.
