Who can blame you, what with Hasbro putting Cantina aliens in what is essentially a Jabba's Palace wave.  ???

SO ordering a case.  I forgot about the Cantina aliens for a sec too - but no worries.

JediInsider has a hi-res pic up of Biggs with his trusty cape, if anyone is interested.

to quote toyfare back in '97(this was about the pilot version of biggs)

"now if only they'd include a lil black box for my useless a__!"

aside from that i really like this figure, and wish they'd included that scene in the special editions.

i really can't believe Lucas resisted the urge to show off aliens and cgi in a massive entering anchorhead scene.
but of course the scene would ultimately need to be rethought in the editing process, such as where to put it?

in my opinion it should be placed after the dinner table scene and before the binary sunset. or somewhere in there. at least that way Luke's news could have come from his conversation with threepio as well as artoo's message from leia.

Could have been the best EU (are deleted scenes EU?) figure of the year if they would have given him articulated knees....


I really like that one.

I'm still digging Biggs for the most part but I agree, there's an extra effort they didn't go with there on his knees.  Luke too, but really Luke's hair kind of throws that figure off as well.  A true SA Luke Tatooine still doesn't exist which is pretty funny...  At least a definitive Luke by most's standards anyway.

Biggs still looks cool in general though, I just know for the hefty price these things cost anymore I'm not fond of seeing any corner cut like that.

Biggs isnt that interesting to me and he'll warm for sure. But more for you guys, I guess, to be optimistic...

McChewie and Jawa w/LIN are in a whole different league from the rest of the wave...that being said, it is the best wave revealed for 07 so far, so I aint complaining about the others. Biggs and Stormy are a definite pass though for me.

The Stormtrooper's outstanding, I'm surprised anyone will pass...  Well, unless you're ok with the VOTC and dont' want more of one guy. 

The McChewie is my fav of the wave...  Outstandingly freaky.

Am I the only one that thinks there are articulated ball joint knees on the Biggs Figure they showed on Hasbro?  It looks to me like there is a hint of an inset inside the knee?  Maybe I'm crazy (I've been called worse).

I'm holding out hope that he'll have ROTS Dooku leg articulation, or at least something similar. Articulation or not, it's still a fantastic looking figure.

Ordered myself a case of 3.1, just so I didn't have to fight for Chewie and a couple Stormtroopers. I get a couple extra Marines, Airbornes, and an extra Death Star Gunner this way too.

I guess that just leaves another Jawa or two, if Darby doesn't kill me for them.  :)
