Some really tough pictures to judge the greatness of any given figure... I'll give some early thoughts though.
-McBacca... Without a doubt this and Fett were the two Concept Figures I was geeked about... Chewie's such a freak he fits into any diorama by himself, so I really wanted his ghastly looking freakish face out there to collect at some point. Looks to have above average articulation too... I'm seeing knees and elbow joints there, 2 weapons... He's a freak and I love him!
-Jawa/Droid... THE single droid I've wanted done more than anything is the Mining Droid and that kicks much ass... A new jawa adds diversity, it's cool for sure and has a neat blaster, but the droid I will want in bulk. I love that figure set. Hasbro gets a big thumbs-up and I didn't even want more Jawas, haha.
-Stormtrooper... Who can complain really? SA, and the helmet looks spiffy in that photo. If that's how it looks in person, I'm gonna be broke.
-Vader... I wonder if the Obi cloak is just a plastic stand like piece? That's cool if it is... The figure obviously is somewhat secondary though I love the pose, and it's iconic to say the least. It's about the only way you can innovate on Vader short of a battle damaged one or some other "EU" concept of one. I'll get it for the cloak though, that's damn skippy there.
-Ellis Helrot... Besides Bom Vimdin and Garrouf Lafoe, Helrot is the Cantina Alien highest on my list too! Needless to say this wave's turning out to be a dream come true. I think I see near Super Articulation on this one too, and the sculpt is simply outstanding, as is his bitchin' little pistol... Perfection as long as the articulation holds up. Must have knees, elbows, and wrists atop the routine points to get my thumbs up completely but it's looking like he has it all, maybe even ankles.
-Biggs... I'm mixed right now. Blowing up the photo and lightening it as best I can, the knees don't look articulated and that's simply disappointing to me... Especially given the great look of the figure in general. There's no cloak either, interesting... Either way though, from the waist up it's amazing... SA on the upper body it appears, a bitching pistol with holster, a great headsculpt... Thumbs up. So far just slight disappointment on the knees... I'm hoping my eyes just aren't as good as they used to be. Hasbro's so f'n goofy on articulation though, I mean why skimp that little bit?
Either way, great custom fodder too, and I wholely expect to see Imperial Cadet figures made with this one.
-Luke... I was hoping for a SA Farmboy Luke, kind of the definitive version of this figure... They have a start but again I don't see knee joints on him and the head's pretty specifically sculpted for certain scenes. The upper body looks great for poseability though... I can easily see some VOTC Luke legs getting grafted to this figure for full SA if the legs aren't as poseable as I'm hoping they are. Either way, a good Tatooine Luke's been quite some time now... VOTC didn't cut the mustard for many, so this is overdue.
