I'm disappointed that NFC hasn't put these up. The case assortment for the first wave is perfect for buying two cases.

The new carded image of the Engineer clone looks to be the SA body now.

Woo! 1,000th post! :D

Galactic Hunter has some shots up (carded and loose) of the upcoming Padme Amidala, Holo Obi-Wan, and Yareal Poof from the "Final 22" figures.  It looks like, at least in those shots, that Poof has the concept Stormtrooper's lightsaber - or am I mistaken?

It definitely looks that way.  If you look at the original 'poster' of the final 22 (I think it's back on page 4), the lightsaber is definitely different than what they originally had shown us.  It seems to fit his had better this way, but I just hope this isn't a sign of things to come in '07.  I'm not a big fan of the wider blade near the hilt.

I gotta say, Padme looks pretty good for a re-hash/re-tool.  Is this a new head sculpt?

It's definitely a little weird to see Yarael Poof with that lightsaber.  But I guess that was one of the few hilts that worked with the way the hand is sculpted.

The Padme looks cool, definitely.  I thought that the Droid Factory Chase version of this figure was one of the better offerings of the original Saga line.  I'd actually like to see it with a chain accessory, but that's just a picking point.

As for the Obi-Wan hologram, it's still a head-scratcher to me.  I can only recall Obi-Wan as a hologram from a distance, as Yoda is meeting with the Jedi Council from Kashyyyk.  It seems that Hasbro was at a loss, too, because the background on the cardback is from the Jedi Temple briefing room where Anakin meets with Obi-Wan.  Anyway, I think it would have made much more sense to do a holographic Anakin Skywalker (possibly the ROTS #28 figure) and call it Darth Vader - Jedi Temple Attack hologram or somesuch thing.

Ohhh! Thanks, but I still see no point in purchasing this fig, I bet it will be the pegwarmer of the Final 22.

Well at least the Padme looks better now.  The initial pics did not make it look good.  I still don't want it but it's better than I thought it would be. 

Poof...he might do okay.  Funky alien with a lightsaber you know. 

Kenobi - I actually like how it looks but will probably be satisfied with my pilot version. 

More and more I will probably just get some of the Kashyyyk troopers and that imperial R5 droid.

All holo figs peg warm (maybe Plo-koon did not).  I bet you can still see Mundi and of course Maul.

There's picture conformation that these have turned up in the mid-west at WM. Sadly, the same day these hit there, my WM's all got tons of old cases. >:(
