I'm looking forward to everything except the Obi-Wan, and that's only because I have a zillion different Episode I Obis already. That said, if they do SA or some other distinguishing feature I'll probably buy it.

Looks to be the most boring assortment yet.

A better Battle Droid would have made sense as well as a new Padme and Qui Gon.

Reissuing Sio Bibble and TC-14 would have been cool too.

Boy, you said it.

Poor neglected Naboo wave... :'(

No respect, no love at Toy Fair or any of the follow-up reports.


I'm still itching to know which 2 Pod Racer pilots were picked - they most likely have to be smaller to fit on the new thinner bubbles (a la the gonk/treadwell 2-pack). Still holding out hope for Ben Quad to be one of them...

I'm also still patiently waiting to see if the Ep1 Obi-Wan turns out to be a total re-hash or if they can use some of the newer jedi bodies to give us a much improved Ep1 version. :-\

I'm thinking they could use the ROTS Obi Wan body as part of a new EPI Obi Wan, I tried that on a custom and it worked pretty well. Would rather them take care of that though.



Something tells me that in the Podracer 2-pk it will be Gasgano w/ Teemto Pagalies, but I pray it's something all new... I'd like to see Mawhonic like Ricky UK made -

Rep Been: I'll probably buy one.

Podracers: If repacks: pass. If new: I'll probably buy one.

Graga: I'll probably buy one.

Naboo Soldier: I'll probably buy at least one. (Different head variants? Please?)

Obi Wan: Not unless it's really awesome somehow.

Holo Maul: I'll probably buy one.

If there's any justice in the world, the Obi-Wan will be as Chewie made.

Are the boots and belt the same on Obi from E1 to E3?

Assuming they are, I'd be just fine with that approach and hope for a new headsculpt on the ballsocket neck.

He is the same from the waist up (belt included I think) But the boots are a little bit different, which could easily be fixing by using the AOTC Outlander Obi-Wan Legs or Agen Kolar's legs like CHEWIE did. THe skirt thing is actually a little shorter as well, which could be fixed by just trimming that pice down on Pilot Obi-Wan a bit.

Depending on the pod racers, theres alot of this wave that I plan to skip. I was hoping for a two pack of these shorty Federation droids:

I've always wanted the short Federation droids, too.  They could throw one in with a Neimodian or a Battle Droid and I'd be happy at this point.  I really look forward to this wave, since some of the rumors sound pretty cool.

I hope the Obi is either some kit bash of the pilot sculpt or the Trophy swimming version that's been in a drawer since 2000.  I'd be happy with either.

Yep, I have wanted those little droids as well.  Sigh.  I always forget them when Scott runs his Top 10 figures for each movie list.

Me too. They're cute. I figured we'd have seen them as a pack in to a basic figure already.
