For some reason I can't. They made them. They're somewhere. Hasbro isn't going to destroy them.

Sorry, my point wasn't that they were going to be skipped from the standpoint of not shipping.  I was only trying to make the point that if some stores are getting waves 5&6 and for whatever reason they sit on the pegs, then some of the wave 4 revs might be 'skipped' as they won't be shipped to those stores.  There were stores around here that didn't get Wave 3 for the longest time because Waves 1&2 were sitting on the pegs forever.  And one store just got a 'new' case this week and it was Wave 2.

I was only saying that with that much product shipping (3 Waves and multiple Revs), there's the chance that some of the revs might not make it to all areas and thus 'skipped' by some stores.

Sorry, bad explanation of what I was trying to say.  I don't think I've clarified it much now though ::)

I get ya. That's always a possibility.

Good Lord, that monstrosity is a pack-in? The card should read "Torture Rack with Bonus Han Solo"!

Although Smuggler Lando is really tempting, I'm going to pass on this entire wave:

4-LOM and Torture Rack with Han pack-in are decent enough but I don't feel much compulsion to buy them.

General McQuarrie (Hoth Trooper) is quite cool, but I don't have a lot of Hoth figures so he'd be stuck hanging with POTF2 Hothtrooper and Pilot Luke. :P

The Concept Snowtrooper has the same problem, and he looks too weird to file under "normal" figures anyway.

Bring on Waves 5 and 7!

My thoughts exactly. I might pick up Smuggler Lando, as I still don't have a Lando in my collection, but it's not of highest priority.

The torture rack isn't very accurate, look at all the little torturing devices on there.

Isn't very accurate? The TR is mostly accurate, all they did was leave out a few needles/other instruments of torture.

I'm in total agreement, they made it look like a giant human-sized waffle maker, devoid of all the inner torture **** we saw in the movie.  Pretty bad job overall.

Heck, you should be happy we're getting this in the basic line. This figure is a great value, so who cares if there are some tiny minuscule inaccuracies? For the most part this is a dead on representation of what we saw in the film.
