Thanks for the pic Nate.  I had no idea what he looked like even though he looks pretty much like a cyborg Grievous minus the clothing of course.

No problemo. Incidentally, the "face" in these pics is still a mask--his cyborg mask was modeled after it. His species, the Kaleesh, wear masks and I don't think we've yet seen what their real faces look like--although they're apparently some sort of reptilians. They also have a tusk protruding from each side of the jaw, which may be what the "vanes" on Grievous' helmet are supposed to represent.

Jeez. I really should go do something productive....

Why not... they did it to Starbuck! ;D

The only figures I'm buying for sure from this wave are Anakin, Roron, Yoda, and the Concept figure. I'll wait and see pics of everything else before making my final decisions.

I think this sounds like a great wave, though I wouldn't be surprised to see some pegwarmers out of it.

Darth Malak - Count me in for at least two, one for a custom

Anakin w/Tattoos - I like this for the mere fact it's so different - a human w/out a shirt.  I could use a few for customs probably.  Cool.

Yoda w/Kybuck - Finally, a Yoda with what could be a great accessory.  If the Kybuck is cool, I might get a few of these.

Pre-Cyborg Grievous - Sounds fantastic, I've seen some great customs on ebay.  I'll most likely get a few and make a fan fic Separatist army with them.  Awsome, now give us a to scale ROTS Grievous!

Darth Revan - Pics of it look nice, but I'll probably only get 2-3 of them.

Roron Corobb - I did a custom of him that I do like, but this could be the winner of the group for me.  If it's well done I could get 5-6 of them.  Here's the custom I made -



While I do like my custom it's a far cry from looking accurate.

What this wave really needs is an army builder like the Lancer Droid!

Darth Malak- I'll pick one up.
Anakin w/ Tatoos- I'll pick one up. This isn't anything speacial
Yoda w/ Kybuck- The Kybuck is an immediate sell. I hope Yoda has the hood up.
Pre-Cyborg Grievous- Either this or Rorron will be the gem of this wave
Darth Revan- Pretty nice, could of used a cloth skirt though  :-\
Roron Corob- Hopefully he'll be SA & not a re-hash like his friend Foul.

I have limits on my EU, so I'll only be getting the CW figs from this group.  I never play the games, and Grievous isn't interesting enough to me to be going this far with him.  Watch him be cool and I buy him anyway.   ::)

The KOTOR figures don't interest me at all, so this will probably wind up being the first wave where I try to trade for just the coins. 

The Clone Wars figures are a definite, though.  I just hope they pack in a Yoda with the Kybuck that was done from scratch so he can interact with the beast, and not just repack the one that came with the Can-Cell and try to force it to interact.  As much as I am interested in the figure, Anakin stands to be the potential pegwarmer of the bunch, especially when there will be a movie-based Anakin on the pegs at around the same time in the Legends line.

Actually, I think the pre-cyborg Grievous is much more interesting than the mechanical Grievous.

I'll buy extra Pre-Cyborg Grievous's to use as Izvoshra Warriors.

I hope they make Ronderu lij Kummar later.

Tough one this.

None of the figures interest me *that* much, with the exception of Raven and maybe Grevious, but I *really* want to complete the coin album.

Not sure what to do to be honest................

Trade the others or trade something for the coins.

Yeah, I'm thinking extras of coins will be plentiful for most figures this year...  I already have a stack of Marine/Airborne/SBD coins sitting around.  I wonder what they fetch at the scrap yard?   :-\
