Someone needs to tell Hasbro that they'd sell a crap load of a lot more of this guy if they just splurged on the rest of the ball-joints.

I dig the Shield on the Destroyer droid, but the Clone with the Armor on (which was shown on the last day of the con) looks awful. So does Jango with his poncho off. :P

i am actually not liking this wave. the clones stance is bad as well as the armor. the Jedi looks like it will be hard to stand. padme is well just another padme. the concept figure looks extremely skinny. and jango's arms looks weird. oh and the destroyer droid...i would have liked it better if you could see through the shield.

Really?  I hadn't seen an image of Jango without the poncho.  Linkage?

Kamino Clone - looks fine to me, but I'm more intersted in the customizing potential.  The snap on armor is ridiculous looking though.  Why bother?




Padme - HOT. Finally her in this sexy outift.  About time!




Destroyer Droid - Looks good, I'll get 3-4 but no need for more than that.





McRebel - Looks really lame to me, more like a Xyber 9 figure, because of the smoothness of the sculpt... no real detail there.  I'll get a few but only for customs.  I do like the Pac Man helmet.





Jedi Dog - I dunno, this is just not a good looking figure to me.  Doesn't look like he'll even be able to stand without assistance... plus his face is really animated looking.





Jango - Now THIS is a kick butt looking figure... great sculpt, cool accessories, the whole 9 yards.  And customizing heaven.  I'll gladly buy a handful of these.  This could be the best basic figure that I've seen in a while.  Thank you Hasbro.

That Jango is the bee's knees. I'll be getting as many as I can for customs. That's frigging awesome.

I think that the Kamino Clone is definitely cool, but the snap-on armor looks silly when you put it on the Clone.  I think it's a cool set of accessories from the standpoint of that quartermaster station that sends out all of the helmets in AOTC.  But would I ever have this Clone wearing the armor?  Probably not.  Make some kind of deluxe quartermaster station to churn out armor and I think it would be a cool companion piece to this clone.

Glad to see Padme without her scarf type thing. She looks much better.

I love how dated and retro the McRebel looks - hopefully I can find half a dozen or more.

Now that's a great idea.  It would be fantastic to see a piece like that with a few helmets on it.

Padme is by a million miles the best figure of the wave, she's in an entirely different league.  :D I mean, Voolvif looks okay, but he probably wont be able to stand for crap, and thats a real bummer. The others are just ehh, so-so, nothing special, and they all have little bothersome problems here and there. So it'll probably only be a couple Padmes, one Voolvif, one McRebel (I love that helmet, its growing on me!), and probably nothing else for me. Disappointing. Especially Jango. And don't even get me started on the crap shield.  :P

I love them all that much more...  I still think the left ankle of the Training Clone is severely bent looking though, and that's frustrating since it's a very Cody-ish thing of them to do.  Fixable but annoying.  The armor's just meh.  I'd rather they gave you a training station seat thingie or even a cafeteria tray of food, I dunno.  The armor's ok, and accessories don't rarely make the figure (Tat. Luke is an exception I guess), so the figure itself looks good to me but that ankle.

The Wolf Jedi is really neat to me...  A memorable character from CW for his brief moment, and I believe he's extra cool because he was voted on to be in the series and got in, so the figure of him sort of makes sense from that point of view (in apparant popularity among fans). 

Padme's nice looking and I'm pretty sure Scott's happy with her.  Not sure the ball/socket shoulder was worth the risk on a figure made purely for aesthetic appeal, but hey it looks decent.  I'm not a fan of all Padme's outfits but that one looks good and is probably one of the better choices to be made.

The Destroyer Droid...  Nice update, and I don't mind the shield.  I agree a simple smooth/clear-blue half-shield would've been better, but the figure's really nice as it stands, and I'm ok with the shield accessory.

The Jango is indeed a masterpiece.  The sculpt is outstanding, and one of the better looking human likenesses I think Hasbro's done by that photo.  The articulation is high, and the accessories are simply incredible.  Full armor for on the figure or sitting on the floor of his apartment.  A poncho for really no reason that looks cool, the working removable pistol belt...  Just fantastic.  Kudos to Hasbro on that one so far because it looks like it's the winner of the wave.

The Rebel's pretty cool and that's art for the rebels I wasn't aware of so it's even better.  I agree with Rob on the retro look being so cool.  I too want a small army of them for some reason, if for no other reason than zero-G Rebels would look cool like that. :)  The helmet, the gear, the sculpt...  I love it so I'm down for a little squad at least, if I can find them.

If I could find any McQuarrie figure at this point...  ::)

Well, i was thinking the wolf man jedi was the only one from this wave I'd really be interested in getting but after seeing the Jango and Training clone I might have been swayed. I'm surprised how much I dig that Jango, Jesse James pretty well summed up my feelings on it, indeed a masterpiece, and it will flesh out my very very low human count among my prequel figures very nicely. Looking forward to it.

Wait, wait, wait... have you seen this figure with the Poncho off and the Armor on?
