Might want to check out JediDefender's main news page for a much bigger shot of this here beauty, especially those 2 new ones on the end!
I'm really digging this Series 2 wave a lot more now with the inclusion of that excellent Greedo and Tusken Raider! Anyone care to place bets on whether the Sandtrooper's going to have the "secret" chase figures in this series? I'm betting on black and white shoulder pauldron variants for the Sandtrooper, akin to the 3 different Boba Fetts we got in the prior series. Hopefully I'm wrong though, 'cause I really don't want this line to continue on with these VHTF variants that will cost an arm and a leg to acquire for all of us Kubrick completists!
I love how Medicom appears to be slowly working it's way through the characters from the beginning
of ANH right now. I'm guessing they threw the Bounty Hunter set out there initially just to get the line off to a great start (excellent idea). Gotta wonder where the hell Vader is though... Most assuredly in Series 3, I'd imagine. Maybe an all Imperial set, with Vader, Stormtrooper, Tarkin, Death Star Gunner, Tie Pilot, and... Death Star Trooper (they seem to come in sets of 6)? How sweet would that be?!?
Of course, that would leave poor C-3PO sitting out in the cold all by his lonesome...
So who else from ANH would be left to make after that? A Jawa, R5-D4, various Cantina aliens, Luke and Han Stormies, RFT, X-Wing Pilot Luke (maybe Wedge/Biggs), Owen/Beru (though the background humans would be boring)... I'd love it if they just went movie by movie - that way I could for once get all my OT collecting done before the less than desirable Prequel characters hit the market!
My actual guess on Series 3: Darth Vader, C-3PO, Jawa, R5-D4, X-Wing Luke, and a Stormtrooper. You heard it here first!
But hopefully they'll go even slower than that, and hit more of the background characters as they work their way through ANH... Loving this line whoever they put out next though! Now if we could just get these damned things sold somewhere other than just in Asia, we'd be in business!
