Interesting wave... Not as nice as the Clone Wars wave for "demanded" figures, but it's different...
Vader with multi-piece helmet in particular sounds neat. It sounds to me like all these removable helmet Vaders are going to become obsolete perhaps. I like the idea, I just hope the execution is done well. The McQuarrie Rebel's helmet has sculpting inside that almost mimics Vaders, so I'm curious if that was sort of an inspiration to try this.
The 3 Cut Scene figures are out of left field... I didn't really know anyone wanted them. I'll take them, but I'm not personally hoping for scene-specific sculpts. It could deliver a nice Han Solo from the Barge fight that has a nice set of accessories (I hope). The Luke I almost expect to be a reworking of the 2007 Luke from JP, and the Chewbacca is just odd. Can't say I've seen a good photo of him from that scene, however I have a real good one of Han/Luke and I'd say they're neat, but not figures I was really anxious for.
The Ewok 2-pack is ok... I'm more an Ewok Warrior fan than woklings and the like, so I'm not excited for it like I was for the 2-pack this past year.
Ak-Rev was expected at some point...
Yarna... I've said it before and I'll say it again, I really don't care about this figure or the other dancers enough to be into her as a figure. I prefer the guards and things to the dancers I guess. Just not my cup of tea. Much rather have Wilrow.
Bane Malar... I was always in the camp with Scott on this, that the guy knocked down the stairs was Doallyn, as was the guy on the skiff, he just changed clothes. Kind of like Skiff/Palace Klaatu were considered many moons ago (though, if you watch close, they're actually two different guys since they're both at the Barge battle). But Bane I'm not totally convinced he exists. I have a good capture of a cut angle from the sequence where he's tossed down the stairs. The shot of the Malar guy isn't the greatest, but it gives the impression that there's only one hose going around the helmet, nothing "light" in color (ala silver) on the helmet, etc. It also seems wider in the back, ala Doallyn's helmet. It just strikes me as a different looking (somewhat at least) guy than the pictures of Bane on the CCG and such.
I know the group shot of Jabba's goons though, just have to find where it is to see if they're both in there somewhere or not.
It's an ok wave overall though, just not my favorite by far.
