The Anakin is the turd in the punch bowl of this wave:
- No Sebastian Shaw alternate head
- The material used for the robe is way too stiff and isn't frayed at all along the edges like in the initial pics of this wave.

But it shouldn't be frayed anyway, should it? I mean, I wouldn't think clothes in the afterlife would wear out. ???

Got to open the rest of the non-Mc figures from this wave last night. Great wave overall.

Spirt Anakin - this is going to sound weird, but he smelled exactly like I imagined. For some reason I expected the robe material to have a certain glue/glitter odor and I was right. Very faint. As for the rest, this figure bums me out because it's literally at the bottom of my list of figures I would ever want made, yet it's one of the most beautifully done.

Ewoks - both of these guys are just cool. I'm very happy with them.

A-Wing Pilot - another contender for figure of the year. Truly outstanding.

I'm lovin the Ewoks.  Bring me more!  Still my favorite out of this wave.  Spirit Anakin kind of freaked me out...the awkward look on his face, odd skin tone, strange robes.  Looks very weird to me, but I love the cardback so that evens it out for me. 

This really should have been a no brainer for Hasbro to include an alternate head and I'm sure the idea was tossed around in planning, but it's just another repack with new head that we'll need to buy in a few more years.  Yet another reason why I'm rethinking my collecting habits...

After having the figure, I would agree. However, which coin would it be? Double sided?

I just picked up this wave, well what I want from it at least, and just opened up the Ewoks set. As has been mentioned these are two nicely detailed teddy bears and with a repainting can fill your Ewok army just right. One thing that struck me as interesting was that Hasbro attempted to mimic the cardback art - and no doubt movie stills as well - when it comes to the paint application on the eyes. The cardback art shows a glare on each eyeball giving the impression that the Ewoks have two pupils per eye. Well they did that for the eyes of each figure and while a nice attempt it actually comes up kinda creepy. At first I thought this was a mistake on one figure, but both figures have it and in fact both figures in my extra set have it as well. Has anyone else noticed this? I think I might have nightmares this evening after looking at these two.  ;D

Picked up an opener McSolo yesterday and opened it. Decently made. Again, I dig the fact that quality articulation is put into all these figures.

Also picked up a few more A-wing pilots. A couple more and I can write off wave 7.

I managed to get the Ewoks, R2, the A-Wing pilot and McQuarrie Han Solo.  I'm really looking forward to opening these up.  Especially the A-Wing pilot.

This wave reminds of all the great value Hasbro has offered in TAC.  In this wave alone, R2 has a nicely sculpted "gurney" and a huge net that must have been a pain in the @ss to sculpt, a gorgeous 2-pack of ewoks, and a pilot with a helmet and a headpiece.  The one A-Wing pilot I managed to find is already sitting in my rebel meeting diorama (when I get more I'll take a pic).
