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.
