Go Romba! I'm glad that's official. Also digging the A-Wing pilot more and more every time I see it.

I agree, the Ewoks might be the highlight...  Tough call between the Tycho figure and them.  The fact they have individual arrows though, a working quiver...  I think the arrows even fit in the bow.  That's sweet stuff for Ewoks.  Bring on resculpts of all the previous figures save for Chirpa if they're this high quality.

I thought the POTJ Teebo was pretty good. But I do agree that some of the more aged figures- Wicket, Logray, and the rest of the Vintage Woks deserve a resculpt.

I'd take a new Teebo only because, now, he's pretty oversized really...  Kind of a bummer though because I agree, he's nice in general, but he's definitely towering over the likes of Chief Chirpa...  I mean, he's almost a Wookiee by comparison, haha. :)

Isn't Teebo suposed to be taller?

Pretty much.  He definitely stands out from the other Ewoks in his scenes.  But I think re-working Teebo would be an exercise in misplaced priorites.  We still need more Ewoks that were in the vintage line, like Lumat and Warok.  Wicket could use a serious upgrade considering the importance of his role in ROTJ and that we're still dealing with a POTF2 era sculpt.  And I think we'd all like to see more Ewoks in general before revisiting a figure that was released within the past 5 years.

The Ewoks in this set are nice.  Especially since we're getting a never-before-produced Ewok in Graak.

Tycho still remains my personal favorite in the wave.  I had always felt as though the A-Wing pilots should be better represented.  Especially since the POTF2 A-Wing Pilot is just awful, and the Arvel Crynyd we got with the SAGA A-Wing was just a repaint from the POTF2 Rebel Pilots Cinema Scene.  So seeing Tycho with the two helmets and removable web gear and superior articulation is very welcome in my book.

Wow, that carded pic of the A-Wing pilot clinched it for me; he looks great!  And the concept Han is making me regret skipping the McQuarrie figures so far...

A-Wing Pilot: PASS! Not interested at all.

R2-D2: PASS! I would buy it if it weren't for them repacking the R2-D2 with the chrome dome, which isn't accurate.

Obi-Han Kenolo: Still my favorite from the wave and my favorite concept figure of the year, next to Snowtrooper. Awesome.

Ewoks: They're growing on me. May just be the first Ewoks I ever bother to buy.

Spirit Anakin: This just might be the worst brand new figure of the year. Everything about it is terrible. Easy PASS.

Wow, the onslaught continues.  I just got noticed that my Wave 7 set is in my "pile of loot" and ready to ship from BBTS.  I guess I didn't expect it quite so soon.

I would guess that EE and NewForce won't be far behind then... crazy!  Many folks around here haven't seen Wave 5 still and wave 7 could be just around the corner.

I have the last two waves of the year on preorder there as well, and I'm almost thinking about cancelling those.  The wife isn't exactly crazy having all this stuff on the credit card each month, especially with Christmas shopping starting up now :).  Its nice to not have as much to worry about finding at retail, but the big "bulk" charges kind of sting sometime (plus the shipping/etc.)  Then again, I still haven't seen wave 5 or 6 (aside from one 4-LOM) at retail yet, so I'm glad I had them on order.

Anybody actually have W7 in hand yet?  I see that W5 is just showing up at Targets on the West coast, so hoping we see a few solid weeks of W5 cases before W7 starts showing up at retial.   ::)

Only 8 weeks left to crank through the remaining waves, so they can't be far away :o

I haven't seen waves 4, 5, or 6 at retail. At this rate, Wave 7 should be in my area this time next year.
