Darth Vader- It was bound to happen. I'll pick one up.
R2-B1- YAY! Second best figure of the wave, should of been a 2-pack though.
Brown Spot Clone- I bought into the 5th Security Clone & 442nd Clone because they were cool & had EU backstory, but this is just pitiful...PASS! Or if it's on sale for the coin.
Naboo Trooper- PASS! Or if it's on sale for the coin.
Rebel Vangaurd- Oooh...Cool. I'll pick up a couple!
Cloak Clone Trooper- Nice! I'll pick up around 10-15.
Pax Bonkik- New background citizens are very welcome in my collection!

I'll pick up a few of the Poncho Clones and the R2-B1. I guess I'll get the Rebel and the Rodians if they look good enough. But the rest can...

Looks like there's a pretty good mix of what people do and don't want from this wave, which I think is a pretty good indicator of a good wave.  Again, kudos to Hasbro on piecing together a decent assortment with little planning.

I agree with that assessment Jman...  There's a mix of people who love it and don't really love it, but it seems everyone's into SOMETHING out of the assortment...  The poncho Clone seems to have the most love though, which is funny since he's EU, technically.

One does have to give kudos for that. I might complain, but it is a challenge for Hasbro to meet these demands.

Lets be happy there IS a replacement. As usual the majority of people will cave anyway and buy them. We bitch because we constantly want more and cannot feed our SW appetites!

Darth Vader- Neat, but will pass.

R2-B1 (Naboo Droid)- Will get, more TPM figures are always welcome. Hope it comes with the starship restrainer thingy.

Brown Spot Clone- PASS. In terms of Phase 2 Clones, I've had enough.

Naboo Trooper- YES! Great figure first time around, great figure second time around. Will probably get, and if it comes with some extra stuff (Crates, etc), will be a must buy.

EU Rebel Vanguard- Pretty cool, nice to see more EU troopers. Might get. Hope it comes with a new game-accurate missile launcher.

EU Muddy Clone Trooper (Cloak)- Might get, Phase 1 Clones are always welcome. Hope the poncho is SG and new.

Pax Bonkik- More obscure TPM Aliens, yay! might get.

Ya know, you have a point. It is very encouraging to see more TPM aliens. They are very cool, Ive been wanting more forever, esp. senators and podracers. If they can do Pax Bonkik, then they can do Sebulba's TwiLek masuesses, Mot Not Rab, Sei Taria (shes actually overdue), Passel argente, Elan Mak, and Boles Roor. I cant wait to see a whole wave of stuff like this.  8)

The early C-IV pics seem to indicate that the Rebel Vanguard really is just a straight repaint of the black Saga06 Endor Trooper mold with the RFT Helmet and Vest slapped on him.

Ick... no improvement there.  I was hoping we'd get some new weapons at least, but it doesn't look like it.   :-\

I'm still digging R2-B1 though.  I'd love those little droids, especially with that sculpt.  :)

I'll get the TPM droid and the EU Rebel Vanguard... Stinks it doesn't include the launcher.

I'm still pumped about the muddy poncho Clones from Clone Wars, and R2-B1's neat...  But boy the others are really just a bunch of schlubs when you look 'em over.  Repaint waves aren't easy to get ramped up for anyway but these seem really meh to me.  Probably one of the only semi-disappointments of the day...

I'm kind of hopeful though that these were so hurredly slapped together that we are gonna get a nifty rocket launcher for the vanguard, however I'm not holding my breath that they "just didn't have time to bring it", ya know?

I'm geeked for SA muddy clones though.

Yeah, I'm psyched for the Clone w/poncho and R2-B1 as well.  I'll also pick up the Holo Vader, but I'm undecided on the rest of the wave.  If I'm complete up until that point, and these have character specific coins as well, I might end up picking the rest up too.  We'll see.  Like you Jesse, I'm not real excited for the wave otherwise.  If its the "last wave", I'm glad this would be the tougher to find ones than the previous waves.  That said, I think the "release date" for this wave was actually a month earlier than Wave 7's, according to the placecards - if those mean anything at all.  Who knows.

For some reason, I thought the Naboo soldier would only have a red hat varient, not the whole outfit.

Wonder what's underneith the cloak on the clone. SA?

I still think that scuba trooper looks silly.  But of course I'll buy two of them.   :-\
