This does not include the Final 22, since I don't have them yet

Could have been on a VOTC/VTSC card with no problem:

Sandtrooper
Death Star Gunner
AT AT driver
General Veers
Sun Fac


Other good stuff:

Boushh
Han Carbonite
Derlin
Sora Bulq
Scorch (even though the 7 pack kinda made this COMPLETELY unnecessary)
Utapau clone (big ups)
Cody (sorta, gotta switch the legs to clone 41 legs though)
Lushros Dofine
Firespeeder Pilot
Hammerhead
R5-D4
Garindan
Chirpa
Luke Endor
Rep Been
Dud n Mars
Gragra

The Bad:

Everything else

EDIT:  I liked the whole VTSC wave, except Luke X Wing.  Loved the scout tons.

You really ought to get one before you profess your love for this thing.  Or at least see it in person.

Hey, you can come do my toy hunt route, you'll bring home 15 of them, since they're the only figures from the wave still on the pegs, and then you'll know what I mean.

How did you not find this yet?  Have you been out?

gragra
sora bulq
podracers
luke endor
commander cody
poggle the lesser
major bren derlin

bad figures:

holo darth maul
holo ki adi mundi
darth vader(endor wave)
naboo soldier(i hate it)
emperor palpatine(ihhhhh)
c3po battle head(all shelves full of him)
luke tatooine
both han solo( i bought one, because i needed one and it looks quite good, but hasbro coul have done better with 002)

pretty good list, id agree with you mostly. how were there shelves full of the BD head 3PO. he was very hard to find in my neck of the woods.

Best waves in The Saga Collection
« Reply #19 on: December 30, 2006, 07:18 AM »
i don't know if the users are happy about this thread, but i think, now, that all basic waves were revealed, we could have a little poll, which waves were best of the saga collection, i thought that ecerxbody can vote for three waves, end of january i'll count the votes for each wave, if you don't agree with this topic, close it! ;)

wave 4: i liked this wave very much, because i liked all figures except holo ki adi mundi, foul moudama and commander cody were my highlights in this wave
wave 3: i like sora bulq and poggle, poggle was hard to find before because he was only in this cinema scene pack, but now you can buy him separate with a better paint job
wave 7: another wave with very good figures, also with mostly new sculpts like gragra and the podracers

i cant remember which wave is which BUT

Hoth wave - i didnt get to finish the entire set (missing the droids) but i really liked the AT-AT pilot,Derlin, and veers.

Wave 4 - finsihed the set. liked Obi, cody, clone, and grievous. didnt like Ani though.

and i guess wave 5 was the one with Hem and the Sandtrooper? in that set i liked R5, the sandtrooper, hem and Nadon.

i havent been able to get anything past wave 7 though cause they are not being released in Canada sooo my Saga ended at 52 :(

Overall, Tatooine gets my vote. Most best sculpted figures and best kitbash.

In second place is the Hoth wave. At-At Driver and Veers were much needed resculpts and Hasbro nailed them. Derlin was cool too, and I just like those power droids a lot for some reason.
Second Place: The Naboo wave. A lot of great new sculpts.
Third: The Endor Wave, for greats such as Endor Luke, 3PO, Chirpa, Rebel Trooper, and DSG (which I opened 2day-best TSC fig by FAR!)

Tatooine was my favorite. A few Cantina aliens, the long-awaited R5 resculpt, an army builder, and a groovy kitbash with Luke. I think the only one I didn't buy was Han.

Hoth and Tatooine were great all-around. The other waves had some a couple great figures as well.

My vote for the best goes to the Hoth wave - since it's the only wave of any line I've ever opened and digested rather than boxing up.   :P

*note - I won the entire wave here at JD.  My newly unboxed AT-AT thanks you guys greatly!

I loved the Hoth wave, and Tatooine was pretty great as well. My favorite figures of the year are the AT-AT driver and Death Star Gunner.

Jabba's palace wave and Naboo/Endor didn't do much for me. I picked up C-3PO and jedi luke, and one endor trooper.
