I was hoping for CZ-3 quality articulation with alternate eye-out and eye-intact head sculpts. That would've been very cool, but this fig should be pretty neat regardless.
Who said that isn't going to happen?  ;)

Well, good point. I guess its possible. You just never know, Hasbro must have replaced 80 percent of its staff between 06 and 07, so I dunno what to expect. We could get a pleasant surprise...

True, but with the exception of the head varient on Vintage Hoth Han, what we see at toy fair is 99.9999% what we're getting.

Just as a heads up, it looks like BigBadToyStore has this wave (and set of 7) up for preorder now.

No 3PO or Hermie?  ???
I may pickup Umpass if I find him on sale, mainly because I want to start a Palace dio this year.

New pics!  Check out the gorgeousness that is CZ, and the horridness that is Luke:

Umpass, eh, I might buy one.

Luke, he still sucks, that pic has confirmed it. PASS.

CZ-3 looks better than ever! Im definitely getting one carded and one loose. Awesome!  8)

CZ looks most choice. But what's with Luke, his feet are huge!

Wow, joints are really turning out to be an issue with these TAC sculpts. That Luke is just bad... the horrible pose doesn't really help "sell" the figure either.

Call me nuts but the Luke's neat to me...  For those that want,they have the Saga figure...  More, or less, the same character with good articulation, much more attuned to being aesthetically pleasing over functional.

This Luke...  More for fun/play.  I like it though...  So far.

The guy who did Luke must be the same guy who did the DS Trooper. :P

I really hope these aren't the final products. I really had my hopes up for Luke. :'(
