Solid wave.  I was wondering when Hasbro would get around to adding some core characters to this wave, and the Obi-Wan and Darth Vader both look good.  Nice, subtle updates to the Obi-Wan, with the new head sculpt and softgoods obi.  As for Vader?  Very good.  Nice new headsculpt, and it appears to have some decent articulation. 

The Mustafar panning droid with hover platform looks awesome!  I don't think we're getting a good sense of it's scale though, since it's supposed to be big enough so that Vader can stand on top of it.  And the platform is supposed to be big enough to fit two characters.  I'll need at least two of these, one for the Mustafar miners and another for Obi-Wan and Vader.

The renaming of the Tri-droid seems interesting.  I know there's been some confusion with that particular droid.

The Clones look cool.  But I'm having a tough time getting excited about them.  I guess I'm cloned out to a degree.

Po Nudo is a must-have.

Undecided on 2-1B.

The tri-droid just looks kind of silly, so I'll pass.

And I've never liked the camo Kashyyyk troopers and don't have the original releases, so pass again.

I love the octupara droid-

Been waiting for that for awhile- Does the head go up and down? I wonder what the limb articulation is like.

the Lava droid looks good too.

I'm gonna go ape on that 41st elite and the fatigues clone.  Very sweet.  I wonder if there are going to be as many 41st Elites hanging around on the pegs as there are Airborne clones and Galactic Marines.  I could go shopping right now to a TRU, 2 Targets, 2 Walmarts and a KB, and come home with 60 Galactic Marines right now if I wanted to, and the Marine is a phenomenal figure.  I hope the same goes for that 41st Elite.

EDIT:  I just enlarged the EE pic of the 41st, that is the same head from the tin biker scout with the flip up helmet, except the flip up helmet part that detatches from the head has been resculpted to be a little larger with a proper visor.  But the head and stationary visor part that sits on the neck is identical.

Looking at the size of Gree's noggin', that helmet does come off.

Some of you probably remember me saying that the ROTS Pilot Obi Wan's legs were way too skinny, almost nobody agreed.   But they were.  Anyhow, Hasbro corrected that.  And it looks much better now.

The poncho clone should have a better removable helmet, that Evolutions helmet is too small and really deforms when you put it on the figure's head.  The Clone Wars SA clone (AOTC Saga Legends clone) helmet is perfect, and I'd rather have that even if it doesn't come off.

Poncho Jango looks delightful.

The Mustafar Droid is my favorite of the wave without a doubt. The one thing i do notice is what i was afraid of. They are carrying over figures from this year to next year for the wave. I really believe this year was special in regards to large pack-ins and new figures. I dont think we will be getting as much next year.

Thanks to Yoda's handy lightsaber skills.  ;)

I know I'm getting 2-1B and Po Nudo for sure... too bad we're not getting FX-6 to complement 2-1, though. Gree looks good, but I'm reserved on the Kashyyyk Scout, Mustafar Panning Droid and Tri-droid. I'll probably get them though.

I'll definitely get Po Nudo, and maybe the droids... But that's it.

Finally they're going to release the Evolutions ROTS Anakin on a basic card! Sure it could still use ball joint elbows, but until they get to that this is the best ROTS Anakin there is and should be readily available.

The changes on the Pilot Obi-Wan are interesting, a new headsculpt, softgoods skirt (why?!?), and Dressel I think the legs are the same as the previous figures, I think they may have either corrected the pelvis or the angle of the pegs which give the leg's a different stance.

The droids look pretty cool to me, nicely detailed I just hope they don't suffer from soft-plasticitis. The clones are a meh to me. I'm totally cloned out. The Aqualish senator looks nice, I just hope they learned their lessen from Lushros Dofine - senators don't sell!
