These look awesome, makes me really wish we were getting Yarna. Other than that, great stuff. This new stuff looks great.

I have to admit that Hasbro is hitting a lot of areas this year.  It's a bit thin on Ep1 though.

You say that like it's a bad thing.

Another fantastic wave. I'll be picking up one of everything. Any word on if Boba is a simple VOTC repaint or does he have any new parts?

Thoughts again...

-CZ-3...  Outstanding and fills one of the last truly unique droid designs left to get to from the original trilogy...  Love this freak, and would love a beat up version of him for a Sandcrawler variant of the figure.  It's great.

-Luke...  I'd always harped I wanted a SA Jedi Luke with a removable vest piece...  Looks like I might be getting my wish, eh?  The bone's a cool accessory too, I just hope he has a little more than that.  I'm already stoked on this one though, so kudos to Hasbro for a job well done it seems.

-Fett...  He may not be everyone's cup of tea but to me he's pretty cool.  :)  I know we're not gonna get many Holiday Special figures so I'm cherishing this one.  Super Articulated, spiffy colors, a trident...  missing a prong I guess.  A bident?  I like it a lot and I know a certain kid who's gonna want that one.  Working holster, SA...  I'm in.

-Umpass Stay...  You guys may hate me at this point...  Worst figure of anything new we've seen I think.  The legs are clearly HORRIBLY pre-posed with zero articulation besides the hips, and really why articulate them at all with these pre-posed goofy sculpts?  Save a buck.  ::)  The upper body looks pretty cool, sculpt's outstanding, but this figure is little more than $7+ set dressing for someone's diorama...  Not a great "toy" I guess is my point...  He's just disappointing me because he looks like a major throwback to 2002/early 2003...  Whatcha gonna do though?  At least it wasn't a guy who was out fighting on the skiffs.   :-\

And Umpass is missing his drum!  So far.  I'm sure it will pop up along with the vaparator.  He sort of makes me think he's been in a drawer the last few years; the rest of these figs all feature way too good articulation to be related to this guy.

I bet there will be some type of Deluxe or even a bigger Battle Pack-sized set that has the other drummer and the drum piece. It seems strange to only offer that guy and no drum.

Though maybe I'll be surprised and they'll pack one with Umpass.

It definitely looks like an interesting lineup.  I don't think we're seeing the entire wave though, as there are only 4 figures from the wave and other waves we've seen have at least 5-6 figures per set.

Luke - Nice.  The bone is a cool accessory, and I think Hasbro's taking a cue from the Rancor beast pack of the POTF2 line with that.  I like that the tunic is softgoods and removable, so that we can use this Luke for a Death Star 2 version as well.  I don't see a lightsaber with him or another right hand, but those accesories might not be pictured.

CZ-3 - YES!  A very nice addition to our droid pool.  I for one don't remember seeing CZ-3 in Jabba's Palace, but there's so much to take in their visually that we're bound to miss something.  I'll probably put CZ-3 with my Sandcrawler or in a Mos Eisley display, but either way this figure is a welcome addition.

Umpass Stay - It's really funny about this character.  I saw him on a lot of ROTJ collector wishlists, but I feel like I see almost as much outcry from fans that Lucas shouldn't have changed the musical number in ROTJ which added this character.  I get a little bit of a chuckle out of that.  But it's nice to see this figure on the list.  I think that there might be a drum accessory with this figure that isn't pictured.  The reason being that Hasbro told us that there will be a moisture vaporator accessory with Luke this year, yet we didn't see one with the Luke figure in wave 3.

Boba Fett - Very cool.  In fact, that's just about the ONLY cool thing to come out of the Star Wars Holiday Special.  That thing is unwatchable except for the cartoon.  It's nice to see Boba's first appearance immortalized in plastic.

No, not really :0)  About all they can do with that is make some SA Kenobi and Jinn and Maul.

Decent wave. No as exciting as wave 3.

Luke, looking good, hope he can be modified into DSII Luke.

CZ-3, thank goodness, now everyone can stop begging for him. ;)

Boba is kinda cool. I wonder how he'd look if they had gone further with a cartoony sculpt.

Umpas, good looking sculpt, but to statuesque. Reminds me of POTF2.

Honestly, I'm surprised LFL allowed Hasbro to produce the Holiday Special Boba Fett considering George has come out and said that if he could destroy every copy in circulation, he would.

LFL will approve anything to make a buck these days. Hell, they approved Boba Fett on a motorcycle and it doesn't get more embarrasing then that...
