The droid pack-in is a great surprise, can be use for more than one diorama. Great sounding wave, I suspect pictures will be showing up shortly.

Wow! Those certainly are unique aliens. I'm even more pumped for this wave now (minus Vader).

Yeah. Now that I think of it, I always thought '06 was a good year, but it's looking like '07 might be even better.

i actually think thats not saying much to be honest.

ive noticed that hasbro said there'd be less repacks/paints/hashes this year, and when you think about it: theyve already snuck em in like with R2, Obi-Wan, Orange Parjai, and Mcq. Stormy, and it looks like Han is modeled off of the VOTC sculpt: how many are left? it leads me to think that this year is gonna keep getting better before it gets worse as far as number of new sculpts goes. and these new sculpts have all seemed to be figs in pretty high demand. we just may see some of the new figs weve wanted for a long time (yarna, ak-rev, ICMG, owen, beru, cliegg, bultar, etc.)

To sum all of this up: I think next year's gonna be GREAT!!!

2006 was a good year for new figures, it was just that there weren't that many.  2007 is looking really interesting at this point.  I'm also excited that the in a recent interview Hasbro said that the McQuarrie figures will continue past the already mentioned 8.  WooHoo!!

I agree that this wave will probably have a Tattoine Luke, instead of McLuke.  I am starting to think that the moisture vaporator will be spread out over all the figures in the wave...

This would seem to suggest that the Luke is definitely a Tatooine one (with the vaparator), which will be cool.  I've been wondering for a while if the Vader isn't the ANH tin set one, maybe with the helmet glued down.  That's what I'm betting.

I was kind of surprised to see the bio on this figure.  I'm *hoping* that this version of Vader will come with Ben's cloak and lightsaber hilt.  I hope whoever came up with this idea at Hasbro thinks the way I do.  But it would definitely make sense if this version was the ANH tin sculpt.

I want that eventually too, but that wouldn't fit this wave (his face wasn't revealed on Tatooine).
