I got my box from New Force today.

I think my favorite is actually Pax.  He's a very cool repaint of a very well articulated sculpt.  Nice to have a little Rodian diversity for the galaxy.

The rest?  Meh...

I agree... I found Pax and the red Naboo guy (passed on Naboo) and I have to say that Pax looks fantastic!    I might be persuaded to get a few more for a nice little group of Rodian thugs.

Got to open the last figure I needed for this wave, the Holo-Vader. Not much I can say other than i stand by my disappointment with the mold used. I think this is the second Holo-Figure I've ever opened and the only reason why I purchased a second is because of the coin. :P

Anyone else think the Hawkbat Clone's weathering is cartoony looking? I know they were in the Clone Wars cartoon, but they paint reminds me of the older POTF2 figures weathering paint jobs. One of the hardest figures to find in the wave. I would Say Holo Vader is number one as I didn't find him at all. Runner up to than two would be R2-B1 and the 7th Clone. I would have really liked to see something a little more with the figures, as all the others this year had much in the way of accessories and extras. The Naboo Guard would have been better if he had a different head sculpt than the yellow version.

Anyway I would have to agree with Pax being the best of the wave. It's funny that you can find him in numbers, as with I see Naboo Guard and Vanguard Trooper as pegwarmers.

Yeah Pax rocks!  I've got three of him already.  I can see a group of them being a gang of Rodian thugs in the Coruscant underworld.   :)

Can I send the ones that will be pegwarming here in January to you?  ;D

Yes, I think the cartoon figure from the cartoon does look cartoony.   ;)

But that is the problem, it's not a cartoon version of the Clonetrooper. The weathering of the figure pictured on the card back looks real over what the final version has. I don't know, there is just no shading to what they did. Would have looked better on the cartoon version over the movie version IMO. It just bugs me some I guess.

I'm up to four of him now, after my wife got me one today.  I've swapped out their jackets with the VTSC Han Endor.  Looks great.  WOOT!   :P

Finally saw wave 7.5 in a store today.  It was somewhat underwhelming.  I passed on the whole set.

I was looking at this picture of the 7th Legion clone on 'scum, and I noticed the next to last figure is a 501st.  Does anyone know when that version was released?  Is that the Battlefront pack maybe?  I want those!  I love this sculpt.



EDIT:  Answered my own question.  My suspicions were correct, it's the Battlefront pack.

This and the Hawkbat are my faves from this wave.  I was looking over Pax more closely today and I think its the paint ap on his face.  That white to green fade is really awesome.  Greedo was also one of my faves from the vintage line, so thisis a nice homage to him.  My only complaint on Pax is his hands - the way he holds his gun looks odd with the fingers straight out.

Why do these get shorter with each new release?

Hey, that is really odd!  Is this just the way they are posed?  Anyone else check this out at home?  I don't want to move mine as they are precariously set up... :-[
