Perfect case assortment:

2x Mustafar Lava Miner
1x Airborne Trooper

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

No chance.

To me the Lava Miner is a more interesting and better figure than the Airborne Clone.

Looking at these figures again, R2 is the only dissapointment in the bunch.  I don't like the yellow glow painted on him because it makes him too scene specific.  Take away the flames, and the glow is is out if place.  The rest are really nice.

Okay, that may be.  And I know you have the same anti-clone, quirky taste for the Naboo hangar guy citing him as a Top 5 All Time Army Builder.  But still, despite your quirky preferences, you must realize that 95% of the other collectors are going to be buying many multiples of the Airborne clone, and not nearly as many of the Lava Miner.  That should be obvious.   Having said that, a "perfect" case assortment cannot have 1 clone, and 2 miners.  It just makes no sense whatsoever.

And it doesn't help that it's an all new clone either, not just a repaint.

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 think the Kenobi has a ball joint waist which Hasbro says Mace dosen't.
I can't wait for this wave! I'm buying every figure! ;D I hope the rest of next year is like this!

Actually, the Airborne Trooper is a repaint of the Mace's Squadron BP Clone Commander.

Which I think is a re-hash of the EVO clone. :P
I really hope this wave is like Carkoon & peg warms. So I can find the figures.

If it didnt have Clones or Troopers in it, it possibly would warm.

Hasbro finally put together a great wave!!! And I thought this years Coruscant wave was good. Well, here's my thoughts on the figures in this wave, even though ya'll most likely don't care:

Airborne Commando: I really like this guy. The removable pouch is a very nice touch. I don't like how he has the older style Clone Trooper rifle, while the Galactic Marine has the Evolution Set rifle.

Concept Storm Trooper: I really want to pick up at least two of these guys. I saw the original once in a Target, but this guy blows the old one out of the water. I really hope that he's not short packed.

Super Battle Droid: Wow. That was a surprise. This is a great looking figure. I'm definitely getting two to go with R2, but maybe another 20 if the flames are removable. Now all we need is a Battle Droid similar to that.

Mace Windu: He looks pretty well detailed. I like the lightning on his lightsaber, and I'm so glad Hasbro gave him a soft goods cloak. Hopefully his articulation is similar to that of Pilot Obi-Wan Kenobi, or at least Evolutions Anakin.

Obi-Wan Kenobi: Now i won't feel bad about buying a repack. I like the breating apparatus and the new electro-pole, and I'm glad that his mouth is not too big. He may go great with the Demise of Grievous figure. The picture on his card is pretty sweet, as well.

Galactic Marine: An excellent figure, I'll say. Perhaps the best of this wave. I really think that the Super Articulation and Removable Back Pack are nice touches. I have the same issue with the rifle as the Airborne Commando, though.

R2-D2: A cool figure that will look nice next to two of those Super Battle Droids. I like the rocket jets better than those on the Revenge of the Sith R2.The paint job on this new one is kind of funky looking, in my opinion.

Lava Miner: Why couldn't the Mustafar Sentry be this good? Oh well, they'll go nice together. I hope the lave bucket can come off of the grabbing tool. That would be cool.

As I was looking at the SBD, I really think the flames are removable.  If you look at the package, he has a little rubber band around the torso flames, hopefully meaning that they need to be held in place, which means removable flames.  Hopefully...
