Maybe it's the designer in me, but I like the packaging for the "Signature Series" McQuarrie Trooper the best. I really dig the drafting/mockup look to the SW logo and the McQuarrie Signature is a great touch.

Hmmm, I wonder if we will get concepts from other artists like Joe Johnston, Doug Chang, Rob Coleman, Trisha Biggar (Padme Concepts anyone) or Ryan Church.

Did Rob Coleman work on designs? I thought that he was just lead animator,

True, but I'm sure he animated characters that were ultimately dropped/edited, so it would be nice to see one or two of those to get immortalized in plastic.  ;)

I think this might be the first time in recent memory that I can say I will definitely be buying all eight figures from the wave.  That Obi-Wan is still one of my favorite figures from the modern line, and the fact that he's got an accessory I've been wanting for a while (the MagnaGuard fart-stick with the electrical discharges) makes him a no-brainer for me.

The concept art stuff has always been interesting to me since I was a kid (one of the coolest things for me in the prequels has been seeing older, OT-era designs done by RMQ or JJ show up in some form, from the Juggernaut/Turbo Tank to the sinkholes on Utapau), so I'm thinking I might for the first time do a carded set of the concept figures in addition to the loose ones. 

Mace is long overdue, as are the Airborne Trooper and the Marine; R2-D2 looks really nice to me, a near-SA SBD is needed (one can only hope the Droideka and the regular BD get the same treatment next year), and the Lava Miner is very interesting visually, and looks to be a good figure overall as well.

Dare I say that Hasbro has finally hit a wave of figures out of the ballpark?

Man...I'm ******* psyched for a new SBD, with poseable arms and the correct COLOR!!! I'm hoping the plastic is better so this guy can finally stand. Those Episode2 SBDs fall over constantly. I really like the SBDs (they're kind of like the Cylon Centurions of the Confederacy), and I can't wait to increase my seperatist troops finally!

And Mace, at long last...its enough to bring a tear to my eye!

I am with you on that DoctorPadawan.  I usually pass on one or so figures on the past waves.  The two concerns I have are the new cards being bent more easily for carded collectors and the scalping with the Mcquarrie stormtrooper if short packed.  I still remember what a ***** it was hunting for the first version.

I never ever saw this figure on the pegs... only saw it when Jedijaybird showed me his loose one at his home a few months back.  :( Oh well, I'll have another chance at it now.  :)

This is the way to start 2007- what a super wave!

Unlike 2006 (repack, new version of monkey face, repack, new version-poor-scale-dopey face, repack, repack) or (Barada, Leia, Chewie, Han carbonite, Bib, Boba)

Put me down for a case, I will put off quitting Hasbro for a little while longer.

The Super Battle Droid looks like it has a lot of potential. The legs still look a tad flimsy, but I looks like they nailed the upper body and the overall color.

Has it hit anybody that this is the third wave in a row, (counting the last two non-exclusive of TSC,) that has 3 or more armybuilders in it?

No case assortments just yet that I have seen, but knowing Hasbro it's probably something like this...

3x Obi-Wan
2x Mace
2x R2-D2
1x Lava Miner
1x Galactic Marine
1x Utapau Airborne Clone
1x Super Battle Droid
1x McQuarrie Stormie

I knew someone would be clever enough to come up with that one.  Worse yet, you're probably right.

There is only 1 breakdown that makes any sense to me.  Hopefully it will be this:

1x Obi-Wan
1x Mace
1x R2-D2
1x Lava Miner
2x Galactic Marine
2x Utapau Airborne Clone
2x Super Battle Droid
2x McQuarrie Stormie

How do you figure?  You think the Lava Miner is going to outsell the clone?

No chance.
