I am scared at the long neck on the pilot. I had to modify my VOTC Leia so she looked normal without the poncho. same goes for this one. It will need some custom work. The ewoks rule this wave!

Maybe I am part of the few but I am not bothered by the Hayden spirit at all. I think this figure look cool but I wish they would get a consistent look for holos and spirits and stick too it so they match. The OTC Luke and Obi in my humble opinion nailed it. I wish they stick to that look for all of this genre. Face it guys, Hayden is Anakin now.

There's a picture over at scum of the pilot with the new Helmet on and the neck doesn't look like an issue.

Hopefully we'll see some pictures at CC that should settle it one way or the other.

With the helmet off though...  ugh.  Is he gonna look like **** or no?  If the helmet's off and he looks bad, the figure's got a problem to me.  :(  I hope not because a good A-Winger's been a long time coming, even if it's a figure Hasbro EU'd up a little bit.

Face it guys, Hayden is Anakin now.

Sorry, that sounds too much like "who are you trying to convince?"  :P  In my world, there are no special editions, prequels, or dvd changes.  The OT is the same as it's been for 30 years now (according to my VHS and laserdiscs, my particular collecting habits, and just my vision of the saga).  Needless to say, the Spirit Hayden is an easy pass for me.

If the neck is too long on the pilot, I'll just leave the helmet on.

This wave is awsome. The McQuarrie Han is my personal favorite, he looks so much like obi-wan.

Looking most forward to the ewoks myself. It'll be nice to have more than just Teebo in my ewok forces.

I'm diggin the Ewoks as well.  The pic on the card of Tycho kinda reminds me of Will Ferrell for some reason..

This wave may be my favorite of the year.

Tycho: Great sculpt, love how they packed in two helmets. Still, pass.

Spirit Of Anakin Skywalker: Awesome, definite buy.

EU McQuarrie Concept Han Solo: Will buy if I see it.

Ewok Net R2: Maybe.

Romba & Graak 2-Pack: Awesome, love the little buggers. Buy.

The case assortment rocks as well. Each new figure is 2 per case! Should make them a lot easier to find.

Indeed that's a good wave of figures...  The R2's outstanding for accessories, the Concept Han's great as have been all the concept figures, the Ewok 2-pack is an army building dream if you dig ewoks, and Tycho's a great figure regardless of "accuracy" or not.  Just hope that neck stays normal. ;)

He's a good army builder though, great articulation (best Rebel Pilot yet), 2 sets of headgear for army building is helpful, and I'm digging him.  Can't wait to outfit my A-Wings with new pilots...  Do a few headswaps and I'll be set I think.
