Excellent looking wave, I really am considering ordering a case. I REALLY like how they sculpted Roron in his "Ithorian War Throat" pose from the cartoon, that's a nice touch. I also think Malak and Revan have red versions of Qui Gon's and Obi Wan's sabers, respectively. Again, awesome looking figures and wave.

Malak looks like he just crapped his pants!

Funny, that's what I did when I saw that picture.

The card art is very nice on all of these as well.

In some cases, better than the figure (see Anakin).

That Anakin is cool! Malak looks like he's seen the ghost of Christmas past... or as Jeff said, pegwarming future. Hopefully the figure turns out better than what is shown. He needs to look more evil like on the package.

Malak's expression honestly reminds me of those multipacks of "Frightened B-Movie Civilians" that Archie MacPhee (and IIRC Entertainment Earth) sell.  Even though I don't know a whole lot about KOTOR, something tells me Darth Malak was supposed to be slightly less amusing in his appearance.   ;D

I like how they put Grievous' actual Kaleesh name on the coin.  I am definitely considering ordering a case of these, because even though I have no interest in Darth Surprise Prostate Examination and Revan, every other figure in the case is seemingly, to steal Hasbro's buzzword, "awesome."

Malak's really a bit of a sinister prick in the game, and since I'm playing through the game now actually I don't recall him ever having the bug-eyed look there, but whatever...  I'm happy to get him as a figure, since I like the game, but that is odd looking.  The hasbro pub photos usually are not production photos though, so I have hopes the eyes will be better.  Usually these seem to be hand-painted figures that use crisper paints and things, and the production figure looks much different.

Revan's quite nice...  They're both nice really, just those goofy assed eyes on Malak.

Besides bug eyes, Malak looks awesome! Hopefully he won't be HTF.

Looks like I'll be getting 7 of the 9 figures in this wave with the exception of Malak and Revan.  Even those 2 are not bad, but I've never played the game and really have no use for them.  I may end up passing on Anakin.  I'm really looking forward to Hermi Odle, Roron, and Grievous.

BEST WAVE EVER!!!

I am opening all of them.

Well, except for the two Im not buying at all: Malak and Anakin.

The rest look awesome, especially Hermi and Roron! Grievous looks a lot better in these pics, too.

Easily one of best waves I've EVER seen!  So much variety, so many all new characters!  So much articulation and nice sculpts!  And so many different figures!  Wow!

Malak's eyes do look crazy, but an easy fix for any customizer.

Also Revan and Malak look like great custom fodder.

A+ Wave Hasbro!

 :P

So am I the only one that's bothered by the fact that Hermie's green on the cardback and pink as a figure?  I think that the figure itself is great, I'm just curious as why there's such a color difference.

Also, I like the KOTOR figures, but Malak's jaw piece is way too big.  That's unfortunate because I was really looking forward to that figure.

I think Yoda is the only one whose actually color is represented on the card art.  The rest are all off, not just Hermi

Hermi's color maybe off... or maybe that's his normal color when not in the dark, dank slum of Jabba's palace  ??? Anyone else disappointed with the lack of Hermi's drool-maker?  ;)
