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.


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

I haven't yet. Anyone got a pic of this??

Although even if the armor doesn't fit well, there's always the Jango from the upcoming Evolutions set.

I passed on all the sets in 2005 and only regretted missing the Anakin/Vader set, so I'll grab that one when it shows up again.  Of the new ones the Fett pack looks great, the other are too EU for me (yes, I do realize one of the 'Fett's' is EU).

Agreed - I think this could be potentially the best figure that Hasbro has made from the prequel line on a regular card.  It has everything going for it though I am sure with the armor on it won't look like a battle ready Jango because of the sleeves being rolled up, but we're getting the Evolutions Jango for that.

I love the Dinner Clone and the Clam Trooper- But the rest are a pass for me.

I like them all except for the McQuarrie figure. It looks very small / thin.

What is it again??  Starkiller Hero?  Kinda reminds me of that T-Bob from Mask, but with legs.

Love them all...  Still gonna be miffed at a pre-posed foot on the Clone though.  I never quite understand the logic in making a figure intentionally difficult to stand but giving it all kinds of articulation too.  Give it ankle joints or leave the ankles "neutral".  Other than that I like all the figures...

Even the Rebel, which I find freakishly cool.  The Hoth design would've been much better to go with the Snowtrooper, plus it's cooler looking, but this design is such a nostalgic throwback, it's definitely cool.

That's a good idea, especially on the last wave.

Fireside Padme and Voolvif are really looking good, and Clam Trooper is actually kind of growing on me....
