This is the one wave I'll be getting a full case of- I wan't each figure (I'm not thrilled with the Luke but I'll take him).

Can't wait!   Now if I can find a McFett and a McTrooper I'll be all set!

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

Maybe it's on the back somewhere. . .

. . .nah.

The cardback was shown at ToyFair.  RS had one of the most legible shots...

Hey, how 'bout that?  Good catch.

(It's still a little inconspicuous, though. . .)

This whole wave looks awesome, all but Luke. Miiyoom actually looks somewhat not great from these latest pictures, but cantina aliens are still always welcome in my collection. Umpass's hat looks like it may be removable, which will make him awesome custom fodder if thats the case. Holiday Boba looks as good as ever, and McVader is awesome! Lots of big accessories in this wave, which may be hard to get I am predicting. This is by far the best wave revealed so far, but the EU wave that should be shown at CIV has the potential to change that. Still, lots of winners in this wave!!!

I guess I can't speak for the majority but my opinion of Luke is improved upon the hi-rez shots...  The joints seem better, the softgoods seem better...  Not sure why he's tucking his saber in his belt like that but I dig him regardless.  I guess I'm just happy we're getting an SA Jedi Luke because the Saga figure never cut it for me...

But there-in lies the real beauty here...  How can ya care much about LUke whe you already have 2 versions of Jedi Luke released in the last short while (Endor and original Jedi) that are both pretty much superior to Jedi Luke here if you don't like all the articulation or the cloth?

I love the Boba too...  I think he's at most partially re-used parts, but I don't see the hoses at the right elbow, and there just seems to be at least some differences there.  The "bi-dent" or "pigsticker" (nice) is a nifty new piece too, and yes I think we'll see someone get this great accessory for no reason at some point. :)

I like him...  Funny, different...  Easy.  All good things I think, and really it's the only highlight from the Holiday Special.

Otherwise the wave shapes up as some nice filler figures and McVader's a must this year.  If he hadn't gotten made, well that'd really be an odd missing link.

The 3 aliens are cool...  Maybe some lacking articulation on a couple though...  Looks like a couple might have not much leg movement which in 2007 has been a big plus on most figures so it's a little disappointing when it's missing.  CZ-3 is SA though, mostly...  Holy crap.  Nice.  Great paintjob on him too...  It's looking like another good wave.  If stuff keeps going as it is in 2007, my reviews tend to look odd because I'm full of joy with most of it...  I mean, even the stinkers have been decent (Lava Miner for instance).  It's crazy.

The adolescent boy in me wants to make a comment about what that last pic looks like, but I'm much too mature to do that  :D.  Aside from the CZ droid, I'm not ecstatic about this wave.  But I will of course get each of the cantina aliens for the dio, the Vader carded will look nice in the McQ series... but I'm not getting the drummer because I am a pre-special edition OT buyer only  8) and I'm not sold on the Luke until I see what some customizers can do with the belt area.

The consensus seems to be that those will be in wave 5.  It's certainly not very logical, as they fit the theme of wave 4 much better, but that seems to be the way things are.

But I think we'll get to see wave 5 and maybe wave 6 at C4 next week.  So there's some upside.

Actually they were probably replaced by the Cantina aliens.

When was 3PO confirmed slimy? I thought he was confirmed with an eye gnawed out.

I want Holiday Special Boba definitely, maybe Umpass-stay. Pass on the others.

McVader just looks really half-baked somehow.

The concept Vader looks pretty boring in the package since it hides his McQuarrie styled cape.  It looks fantastic loose though.  8)

 


I'll be buying all of this wave, except maybe Luke.  I'm going to take a good look at the ones I have and decide if I need another (or perhaps just replace one).

A guy at Scum posted this pic of the Luke; it's not as bad as I thought, and no repair work will have to be done to the belt area!  To be accurate though, he'll need a silver buckle.
