I just checked them all out. The winner in the wave is Mace for me. It's about time we get the SA version.

SA Mace. Finally. And the headsculpt doesn't have that dopey look on his face.

I like the "new" Obi Wan as well. Not sure if I'll get him though.

Galactic Marine and Mustafar Lava Miner are definate buys.

R2-D2 looks like the Titanium Figure.
I remember my dream now.

Ugh.

We finally get the new astromech sculpt for Artoo, and he's got those silly rockets and an absolutely terrible paint job.  I really hope this wasn't the same one Hasbro mentioned in the Q & A a few weeks ago.

Any other Artoos rumored for next year so far?

I just want a goddamn clean Artoo using the Sneak Preview astromech sculpt.  Is that just too much to ask for?

Everything else looks pretty good--especially Mace, although it always kind of sucks when you can't see what they look like underneath the soft goods.  Hopefully that right hand is removable.  And it doesn't look like he's gonna have the removable hilt that can be stuck to his belt, which is unfortunate.  Oh well--still easily the best Mace to date.

The concept is similar, sure, but they look nothing alike.  The Titanium version looks much nicer.

There is supposed to be a Stormtrooper Luke/R2-D2 2-pack in second wave of the "Comics Packs" series...  

I guess I assumed this wasn't what Hasbro was talking in the Q&A about because this R2 has completely different legs than the sneak preview sculpt...  :-\

I suppose I need the new Mace. Although if the one in the Windu Squadron battle pack doesn't suck too bad, maybe I can pass on the SA.

I doubt Obi-Wan is enough of an improvement over the ROTS Pilot sculpt that I'd need this one.

I've never had a big hard-on for the Galactic Marine like many of you, but now that I see him he does look pretty darn spiffy so I need one to go with Bacara.

Flaming R2 and the lava miner look extremely cool, but so far I'm unsure if either one constitutes a "need".

Oh, God.  Don't remind me.

If the jets are sculpted onto the legs (which I assume they are), then yeah.

If this is the same one they were talking about, man, what a letdown. 

Might make a good followup question. . .  :)

I don't know if it is the combination of just seeing some new figures, or anticipating the next line, but the first wave looks pretty nice to me.  The Galactic Marine and Lava Miner are still looking great, and the new Mace is long overdue.  The R2 looks pretty cool the way it is set up as well, although I hope this isn't the use of the sneak preview mold we've been told about either.  The Obi-Wan looks pretty good too, and if they're going to "repack/retool" figures, I'm glad they use a figure like this.  I hate to admit it though, but I might end up being a sucker for these coins too.  Hopefully I won't "have to" have them all though.  The whole wave looks pretty nice overall though, and I'm looking forward to seeing the OT offerings for the 30th anniversary.

Either way (jets = sculpted or jets = plug-ins), those legs on R2-D2 appear to be new/different from the preview droid sculpt.

I still like it for what it is, but I don't like it if it means we're not getting the "plain" sneak preview sculpt R2-D2 instead.

It looks like Jedi Insider has the entire wave up, including the Airborne Trooper, McQuarrie Stormie, and a Super Battle Droid.  Looks like the McQuarrie trooper has been changed up since the previous release.

Yeah, looks like he's gray-and-white now instead of black-and-white.  Fancier paint-job on the shield as well...

I think I'm in for 2x each (loose and carded) for all 8 of these wave 1 figures.  They all actually look really great and there don't appear to be any straight re-packs which is a refreshing change... 


ps.
It looks like the figure #s are imprinted right on the coin - I can read a few of them, but the coin art is obscuring the figure number for some...

#02 Galactic Marine
#04 R2-D2
#05 Obi-Wan Kenobi
#06 Mace Windu
#07 Utapau Airborne Trooper
#XX Mustafar Lava Miner
#XX Super Battle Droid
#XX Concept Stormtrooper
