With all the all new version of Gree I'm hoping we get a new clone head---that hopefully we get him with a different hair cut like www.starwars.wikia.com/wiki/Faie.  But since the Elite troopers helmet doesn't come off and Gree does I'm kind of hoping for a semi blend of the 2 characters.

Is the body suit supposed to be grey on this trooper?  Looking at the movie recently I could swear it's the standard black body suit.  Do I need a new TV, or has Hasbro gotten it wrong?

They are getting it wrong....sigh, again.


And is it me or does it seem like the helmet is wrong. The visor looks off kilter adn still too much like the Biker Scout.

Gawd, I'm glad this will be my last big army builder. I'm done with it after that. Just squads for me (5 figs) of troop type figs.

****...  I'm still tracking down coin figures...  Not relishing the idea of stand figures being out.

A local Wal-Mart here in the OC (Orange County, CA) had some of this wave. I picked up the Po Nudo and 2-1B. They were in those cardboard trays packed with wave 7.5 and 8 figures. Including the McQ Rebel Trooper, Hawkbat Clone, Jango. I did not see the Mustafar droid, Kashyyk trooper or the Tri-Droid. The ones that did have from wave one, they had one of each.

Capt. Yoda, did they have coins (the repacks) or stands?  Just curious...  I still need Pax Bonkik's coin and Holo Vader's coin.  Saw some 7.5 the other night, but of all things they were the ones people just sent me coins for the other day. :)  Not the odder figures int he lot like Pax, or the red naboo guy, or Vader.  You'd think they'd be the tougher scores.

I was just checking out a Gallery of Wave 1 that SW Action News has up, and it looks like the Anakin must have new hip articulation - or could the previous Evolutions version do that?  I don't remember I guess.  Looks like a nice wave overall, hopefully it starts hitting more widespread soon (although the break has been nice).

I thought I heard somewhere along the line (Q&A, convention, early pics, someplace ???) that both Obi-Wan and Anakin were not straight repacks but had been retooled to add a new waist area that allowed both figures to have ball jointed hips so they could do the splits like that...

Most of them had coins.
