I think you're right about the FU figures.  The one all the way to the right looks like that Jedi woman with the bare belly outfit.

AND...their are foot pegs on the platform!

I'm just puzzled about the first silhouetted figure.  It doesn't match up with any of the figures that we've seen before.  But it could be this one droid character called Proxy that's listed on the Force Unleashed characters page.

Are the Anakin and Obi the same ones Target put out last year as exclusives? I think they should have added the panning droid with those figures, maybe they would not have become peg warmers! Does anyone know how many more waves of the 30th they are going to do before they start TFU figures? OR are those going to be packed in the 30th cards as well? No more coins?   :(

I think that the first tow are stormtroopers, the first one has a leg holster on the right side.  The head shape looks odd because of the backpack...yup.  RS has pics up.

Whoa, talk about some serious ADD.  Maybe try one question at a time.  ;D

Sorry, but I hope they were goog questions. To answer the ? about the lava platform, the discription says "12" figures for the case, and that is how many figures are shown.  So I would say NO to the platform being with Anaking and Obi.

I don't thing they were very "goog" questions at all, they are easily found out.

TFU starts in february next year.
No more coins.

I will actually miss the coins. I like them better than the useless stands with logos on them. At least ROTS had cool environment stands.....

also disappointed that there is not lava damage on obi-wan and anakin.

I looked pretty closely at the silhouettes on the cardback.  It looks like those figures are as follows:

___  # 08/09  Imperial Evo Trooper
___  # 08/10  Imperial Jump Trooper
___  # 08/11  Maris Brood

Are the Anakin and Obi the same ones Target put out last year as exclusives?  I think they should have added the panning droid with those figures, maybe they would not have become peg warmers!

No, not at all.  And those came out in 2005. 

The Obi-Wan in this wave is a kitbash of the ROTS Obi-Wan pilot figure.  The changes appear to be a new head sculpt and most of the skirt portion of the tunic appears to be made from softgoods.  There's a pic of that Obi-Wan in the cockpit of the Grievous starfighter, and it appears as though it might have some kind of scorch marks on the tunic.  ***EDIT - I looked at the image again, and that Obi-Wan in the Grievous fighter is a prototype, and the markings on it aren't scorches, they're the prototype indicators that Hasbro uses to identify pre-production pieces.

The Darth Vader in this wave appears to be the ROTS Evolutions figure.  It looks like the headsculpt might be slightly different, and the paint apps look a bit better, too.

The Panning Droid looks like it's a good figure on it's own.  Add in the mining platform and I think it's a good set.

Does anyone know how many more waves of the 30th they are going to do before they start TFU figures? OR are those going to be packed in the 30th cards as well? No more coins?   :(

From what I mentioned above, it appears that wave 2 is the first wave of The Force Unleashed.  There are rumored to be two waves for TFU, followed by a few 30AC transitional waves leading up the Clone Wars line.

What a surprise to wake up to. Feels like these are going to be here before we know it.

These all look fantastic.  I was hoping Obi and Anakin would be a little more scruffed up from their duel.  Obi, anyway; Anakin looks pretty good.  Can't wait for these.   :)
