Wow, this wave looks nice! Definitely getting Mace, the Marine, McQuarry, Airborne!! Not sure about R2, though... But I like the look of the sculpts on the coins, but I hope they're not flimsy.

The only ones I'm interested in are the McQuarrie Trooper, SBD, and the Lava Miner.

Getting Mace, an Airborne Trooper, a few Marines, and some Concept Stormies. The rest I'll be passing on until further info about the figures are revealed.

Hats off to Hasbro for the Mace though. I can't believe the best Mace prior to this one was made 8 years ago.

This really is a good looking wave. I'm really impressed with the new paintjob on the McQuarrie trooper.  Much more faithful to his ideas.

I'm not liking the cards as much as I thought I would.  They're a bit too garish for me.  No big deal, they're headed for the trash.

Anyway, are these expected for Christmas, like so many other change over cards? Or will actually come out in Januaury?

RS has some nice big high res shots

I like the Mace, but sure as **** the face sculpt still doesn't look much like Samuel L. to me.

Everything else looks really good.  Galactic Marine is off the heezy.

I could have sworn I read somewhere in one of the Q&A's that the 30th line won't start until April/May. I couldn't find the Q&A entry though, so who knows.

I just realized they FINALLY gave Obi-Wan the correct color ankle joints. Still passing though, I've already bought him 3 times.

The airborne trooper is a big "Duh!" for me. I'll probably want the SBD and McQuarrie trooper as well, although they're of a lower priority.

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.

The BP Mace does suck that bad.  It's the EIII version with a cloak on it.

I'm a little suspicious that the SA Mace is the same body as the Obi Wan in this wave.

I'm getting Mace no doubt. Most likely I'll be buying multiples.

I'm probably gonna buy R2 and the Lava Miner as well.

The SBD looks sweet--if the flames are removable, I'm getting a few.

Obi-Wan is okay, but his electrostaff is awesome!

The 3 clones are boring for me. After the BARC trooper comes out, I'm gonna try to never buy any clones. Ever.

If Wave I is any indication on figure quality for 2006 I'm happy as a clam myself...  Articulation looks outstanding on everything from teh Super Battledroid to the Galactic Marine to the Lava Miner (though it's tough to tell on him what moves and what doesn't exactly).

I just hope they improve over 2006 because this year's articulation obviously was a let down to me...

I like almost all of that wave though...  I'll get Obi-Wan just because it's different enough for me to want one.  I'm loving the Windu figure, and the Marine...  The Super Battledroid is looking sharp too though I'm curious how that right arm poses.

Interesting unveiling of the first wave for 2007...  Got my hopes going for the classic figures we should see next year.

I will probably get at least 2 of everything here, and many, many, of the clones, concept trooper, and the SBD.  I can't wait!  When are these expected to hit?  November?  December?

I'm thinking December-January, kind of like when the first TSC waves hit.

Wow, just saw the pics for Wave 1 and am verrry impressed. Definitely buying multiples of Mace and Galactic Marines as well as the Airborne Trooper.

Definitely thinking Galactic Marine is the best of the wave, the paint on that one is superb. Looks to be super articulated as well.

Can't wait til January, that's when the first wave of TSC hit in my area.
