Re-hash w/a new hand that holds the saber.

Thanks, that saves me some dough.

I am really happy with Endor Luke.  Short of an all new figure or VOTC version, I think this is the probably the best Hasbro could have given us...nad he has been long overdue.

I have seen all of them except for the black Endor Trooper.  One Wal-Mart here had a bajillion figures on the pegs form this wave, easily the most figures I have ever seen at one store in a non-movie year...and not one single black Endor Trooper!

The revision cases of this wave are already starting to hit. As if the complete wave isn't hard enough to find already.
They'reprobally the only cases my area have gotten hit by Grievous' & Anakin's galore. Not one Naboo figure, hopefully they'll be wrong the next time I check.

Here's something I was surprised to see at a store today.  All of the Naboo wave sold out except for the Naboo Soldier.  And there were quite a few of those left hanging on the pegs.  Strange.

Actually that is a trend in my area.  I know the Naboo wave was there b/c there is a Naboo Soldier or 5 left behind.  I cannot bring myself to buy this door stooper looking guys, regardless of articulation.

Naboo soldier is already pegwarming up here.  Even at half off the regular retail price ($5 versus $10).  Sure didn't take long.   :o

I also have yet to see the black version.  Every Walgreens in Chicago has a Naboo Soldier, though.   ::)

The only thing I've actually seen so far is Rep Been... I picked him up in Dallas last weekend.... but I'm in DC... there are only a few from the wave I want- Gagra, PodPeople, Naboo Soldier... everything I see here is GB/Heros, Hoth wave... it's all pegwarmers from the older stuff.

Sigh,

I guess that we can surmise from the Naboo Soldier's pegwarming status that Hasbro probably won't be making a running change and doing this figure over in red.  You can see some guys in the same uniform in red on the cardback photo.  ;D

to add on to that, i think they've said in a recent QnA that due to the production run on this figure they wouldnt be able to make a running change, and that it was 'an intersting suggestion they would consider in the future...' yeah ******* right!  :P
