Interesting.  Still huge hands, but I wish we could just get a pic without the sash to see what waist details are there.

I still hate it and the 2004 version that was recently released w/the poncho is far superior.

Hasbro told us at Toy Fair the robe/sash were NOT meant to be removed, so I'm wagering there are no details under the sash Daigo-Bah.  I could be wrong but if they didn't intend it to be removed I don't have high hopes for a Death Star style belt under there.

JediInsider has some pics up (carded and loose) of the Wave 4 figures.

I'm down for this wave. I'll prolly order a whole case depending on the case breakdown.

With 7 figures in the wave, someone is going to be shortpacked.

The only one I'm not to ecstatic about is the Luke, so I'll trade or sell (at cost) any extra of him I get in a case.

The rest are decent. Nice to get two Cantina  aliens and each with a curved piece of the bar to finally finish that diorama. Umpass Stay is okay. I'll stop at two of him. The second one will be great custom fodder. Boba I'll keep one carded and one loose. Can always use more droids, so CZ is welcome. And of course the McVader is going to be a keeper. I look to get thre of him. (1carded, 2 loose each with a different helmet on, to display loose)

So not a bad wave at all.

I don't know if this has been mentioned here yet, but I like how it's "Animated Debut" Boba Fett:



They can't even bring themselves to put "Holiday Special" on the packaging. 

Maybe it's on the back somewhere. . .

. . .nah.

Is the Animated Debut Fett all new tooling, a kit bash or a repaint?

I know the accessories are new but I can't tell with the figure.  It looks like he has a new belt...

That is funny.  Nice easy repaint for them too.

Has that pigsticker been used before, or are we destined to get a skiff guard with a new weapon at some point?

I am loving the Boba Fett, so far my favorite figure of the year.

I don't think I'm getting this Fett unless I buy a case and just happen to get it in there.  I don't like the way it looks, don't care about the Holiday Special, and the color scheme makes it look like a prototype or something.

One of the few figures I'll be passing on this year in an otherwise pretty nifty lineup.

Ah, live a little.

It's cool because it's different and hey, it's Fett.

I'd guess it's the VOTC mold. But that's just a guess.

That EU Holiday Special Boba looks awesome! My second most wanted figure of the year, behind the DarkTrooper. Hope he isn't HTF. But after an EU Concept Boba and a repack of the VOTC Boba, maybe this one will pegwarm.

I can't wait for this wave. The McVader, CZ-4 & Elis are definitely going to be my primary "must haves". That McVader is gonna look great w/ McLuke.
