EDIT: Oh, upon a closser look, it's a pod racer. :-[

What's up with his helmet? It looks like it's missing the black stripe above the visor. I hope this gets fixed.

As a Battlefront I fanatic, I think Rebel Vanguard looks very cool! But he will have to come with the missile launcher for me to buy him.

I really, REALLY like Pax Bonkik. I wish the boots could be accurate, but this is still a great repaint.






I think this 'ketchup' repaint of the pegwarming 'mustard' trooper will actually sell a lot better. The paint really makes a difference, at least it does for me. The card art of the character in action will also probably get a lot more kid or parent buyers rather than the Saga version that just had a picture of him standing there. I will buy at least five, seriously!

So where's M&M trooper, R2-B1, and gummi Vader?

This wave seems to be a little light in the accessories department. The troopers I can understand, but would have been nice to see Pak with something extra. Maybe some tools or a box of some sort. They even left off the holster that Greedo came with. I wonder if R2-B1 will have the charging unit that the E1 figure came with? I hope these are test shots of the figures and not final. There is much to be changed on them IMO. Over all they look good, just hope for more when I see them on selves.

This wave is the perfect example of why Hasbro needs to consider the "build-a-something" concept. 

I know that I sure would be a lot more excited about the repaints in this wave if we were getting a "Build A L8-L9" or "Build A HK-47" piece with each of these repaint figures.   :D

Of course, then everyone would bitch that they have to buy "all these figures that suck" to get all the parts... ;)

I would have liked Pax to include at least some accessories. A Pit Droid, pod racer banner/flag or even make it a Pax/Wald 2 pack.

The lack of accessories in this wave most likely stems from the fact that Hasbro lost money on all of the spectacular pack-ins we received druing the first part of the year!

I thought the BF Vanguard was supposed to include his launcher? I'll get it nonetheless.

As others have pointed out, the RVT is also missing his coin. 

It is most likely an early carded sample and as such, may not be the actual finished product.

To be honest, I'm not super excited about this wave necessarily either.  I'm definitely looking forward to R2-B1 since I missed the TPM version, and the Clone with poncho and Holo Vader look nice, but aside from that I think I would pass on the rest of these.  Sadly, I think I'll get the whole wave because I want the coins like a sucker.  Its not that I hate the figures though, but if it was a year where they just had stands or something, I'd probably be more likely to pass - especially with the money crunch and all the stuff shipping right now.

I too will buy for the coins more than anything, but I gotta say I'm kind of liking the "breather" this wave is going to hopefully bring by not making me want to buy multiples of anything but the muddy clone wars Clone.  Maybe two of the Rodian, but otherwise I'll be quite ready to NOT go ape**** buying extras of these, and maybe actually get somewhat of a break for 2007.  It's been one of the toughest years collecting on me, without a doubt.

I thought that too, but it's hard to stomack these at the price when we have been getting so many great figures this year. This wave is going to make the last wave that much harded to get, as you are going to see a dam up of these everywhere. I really hate when Hasbro offers repaints/repacks with nothing special. I hope I'm wrong on this as the last wave has many figures I'm looking forward too. I'll be getting at least one of each, as many others mainly for the coin, but I can see then on pegs until first quarter 2008.

Wow...pretty crappy stuff here except for the droid of course.

The Vanguard's "cannon" is huge - even for a Transformer.
