Wow.  That McQurrie Rebel is awful.  That's not even McQ art on the card!!  That sucker's gonna warm pegs till they bend!

He looks like something out of the Blackhole with his 70's space age armor. They definately did not leave the best for last. Is that a toilet bowl on his head? Looking at it makes me want to poop right now.

I guess I am the only one disappointed in Voolvif. He looks too much like a goofy cartoonish disney character. The snout is too long which in my opinion kills the figure. I wish he looked like the picture. Notice the face details, even the old Lak Sivrack looked closer to the actual alien. I was hoping to get that red eye look too. No complaint on the body just the head.

I'm dissapointed the last figure wasn't a concept Lando instead of the Rebel Trooper.

The rest of this wave is pretty neat and I look forward to adding them to my comparibly bare AOTC shelves.  I say that because between ESB and AOTC, they are vying neck and neck for lowest number of figures on the shelves in comparison to the other 4

One of my favorites of the series - I love how dated he looks.

I am glad to hear that all the armor comes off of the Dinner Clone. I don't mind it coming packed in as a feature for the kiddies, just as long as it is removable for collector display.

I wonder how long until we get the blue-tunic version of this guy--running variant or repack down the road?

I guess I am the only one disappointed in Voolvif. He looks too much like a goofy cartoonish disney character. The snout is too long which in my opinion kills the figure. I wish he looked like the picture. Notice the face details, even the old Lak Sivrack looked closer to the actual alien. I was hoping to get that red eye look too. No complaint on the body just the head.

I was thinking the exact thing. The POTF2 Sivrak isn't spectacular either, but he's still better than this. Hopefully it's just these pictures and the actual figure looks better from another angle ... he's the one I was most looking forward to from this wave.

Wave 9 is listed at HTS.  Mind you they are all 'Out of Stock', but at least they are showing up on the web-site.  Wave 8 is nowhere to be found however.

Is it me or does it look like Voolvif has a green Anakin saber?

Looks similar, but the grip on the bottom part of the hilt is much shorter. It looks more like the bottom of Obi-Wan's.

Isn't this wave 8?

Maybe?  Depends on the way you want to look at it:

The way they were originally annnounced...
2007 Wave 7 - RotJ
2007 Wave 8 - Repaints
2007 Wave 9 - AotC

or

The way that retailers labeled them...
2007 Wave 7 - RotJ
2007 Wave 7.5 - Repaints
2007 Wave 8 - AotC

or

The way they are showing up in stores...
2007 Wave 7 - RotJ
2007 Wave 8 - AotC
2007 Wave 9 - Repaints

Take your pick!

I'm sticking with "Wave 9" based on my refusal to call a wave x.5 and the numbering of the figures in the wave.  ;)

I'm calling the Repaint/Repack wave 7.5 'cause it doesn't include a McQuarrie figure.  :P

It's no wonder I can't keep things straight.  I tried to play it smart this year and order everything through EE.com...boy, was that a mistake.

I haven't even received Legends Wave 2 or 4, let alone TAC Wave 7.

I actually cancelled Wave 6 because I found the entire set at retail.

And sadly Hasbro will use it as an excuse why they won't make any Super Articulated Rebels...

Not here they won't - I'm hoping for at least 12 of that Rebel - probably my favorite of the bunch.
