Wow, now this wave is really sweet. I think wave 4 and 5 are the ones I'm really thinking of getting practically all of. All of the figures revealed appeal to my specific interest. It's also nice to see the KOTOR figures. Having played the game, I always wanted figures of some of the characters but never thought they would happen. The sith lords are a good choice, cool designs visually. Now if Hasbro would just make an HK-47 and T3-M4 I'd be one satisfied customer. Oh, and I'm digging that pre-cyborg Grievous probably the most.

If a case contains one each of twelve figures, it makes perfect sense to order online.  Unless of course, you are an army builder only.

Or an idiotic jackass.




What if I'm both?  :-[

An oxymoron.

Just like the guy who coined the phrase.

I've given up hitting retail for these. Since Hasbro pretty much packs each fig 1 per case anymore anyway I'm just pre-ordering online. I preordered wave 4 and 5 actually because I'm tired of wasting gas to find the mcfigs. The extra cost for the figs outweighs what I'd spend in gas. In some cases higher shipping just balances it out. I figure let the scalpers fight in the aisles or leave more for those who can't order online, I'll just sit at home and get what I need and if I find anything at retail, bonus. As long as Hasbro is packing most waves at 1 ea it just makes sense unless you've got the solid hookup. But I'm not an army builder so this approach really works for me. 
The most prized possession of my entire star wars collection is my Sega Trilogy Special Edition Pinball Machine.

Same here - wave 5 was the first time I have ever ordered a case, and the decision stems directly from the difficulty level of finding Chewie and Fett in stores - still to this day I haven't seen either, and I'm looking - a LOT.

Malak's jawpiece is removable.  Later on at C4 Hasbro took that off and had Malak holding it.  It looks pretty creepy for him to be holding the collar and to see most of his jaw missing, but it does serve to make him seem that much more menacing.

Ooh, any pics of that?? I didn't see any pics showing that on ANY of the major collecting sites.

Here ya go...


One of the problems for Malak is that he's to thin and like many complain about his jaw piece is to bulky i woudn't mind that if the figure was bigger.
I suck.

I hope all Darth Malaks don't look like that one.

It looks like even he is worried that he'll be a peg-warmer...  :P

He's got some crazy eyes going on.

Either way, i think this is the best wave of the year.  ;D

Looks like Hermi's bubble is larger than the others.  I was wondering how they were going to pull that off without splitting him in two.  Also, 3PO is vac-metal?...I thought the version at c4 was non-vac..

Yep, a great wave - I love the cardback artwork.

Back in the old days, that Yoda set would have been a deluxe $9.99 set.

Very nice wave, I'm really looking forward to it.  It does appear that the 3PO is vac-metal, which is a nice improvement if the figure ships that way.  Hermi is of course welcome, and I really like the "realistic" Clone Wars figures included in this wave.  I hope that when the new animated series starts, they continue this way.

That's an excellent point about the Yoda and Kybuck, that's definitely nice that we're getting both for the basic figure price this year.  I was curious how they were going to fit all of that on a basic card.  One of the figures I'm looking forward to the most this year, for sure.  The card art is very nice on all of these as well.

Malak looks like he just crapped his pants!
