It's a shame because the Jodo paint job looks great. And yes, the SA droid is a good compensation.

As for the others in the wave, not great but not bad. I would have liked a Death Star Trooper repaint in the Gray or Olive (depending on your point of view) instead of the BFII Imperial Engineer.

This would've been my preference as well.  That 'Engineer" looks like just a DSG...  I see nothing special there.  I'll take another one, but really I could've used a grey DST a lot more than this figure.

The Neyo thing to me is cool, as I prefer the non-binoc trooper, but what Hasbro really could do to appease people is include both heads.  Not really something that would've broken them, especially on repainted stuff they're bumping the prices up for, so I'm disappointed still to see Hasbro not take the reigns and be a little more innovative with extra heads/parts like that.

To be honest, the droid is about the only thing making this wave interesting to me.  The 41st Clone maybe as well, and perhaps Dooku to a lesser extent, but the droid is what will drive me to buy the whole wave.

If the silver Ra-7 is not the BAD in this wave, I will skip it entirely.  This is the biggest let down from Hasbro for me in quite a while.

I'm definitely going to get this wave, but I'm not going to go crazy over it. Probably just one of each to open and one of each to keep MOC.

There are pics on the main page of some otheR Site.  The Jodo figure has very strange looking shoulders.  I see above its been speculated that is just a repaint of the Saga 2 Boba Fett, which looks pretty accurate to me.  Which is disappointing, how come they didn't use one of the molds from the Elite Forces pack, or Evolutions pack, Vintage Boba, etc?

Time to start hunting. Sucks that Jodo appears to be the HTF figure of the wave...

It's too bad that I'm going to skip this wave entirely since it would be nice to have the ra-7 droid. I really don't need a blue jello Dooku. I'm not sure why I need Jodo since there seems to be about five other repainted Boba Fetts coming under different names.

^ Agreed, I don't care about this wave at all... it really is lame.

Yeah, I think aside from maybe a figure or two, I'd likely skip this wave aside from the Build a Droid.  I'd really like to get that, so I'm guessing I'll just end up picking up the whole wave.  We'll see though - there just could have been some much better choices (many of which were mentioned here earlier this year) for a repaint wave.  I like the Coruscant landing Clone, which is probably one of the few movie clones remaining - but not much else is too exciting.

The BAD droid is enough of a gimmick for me to get this wave out side of the figures I do want , Imp Engineer and Coruscant Clone, versus the ones I don't, Dooku, Jedi's, Jodo and Saleucami Clone.

Can someone remind me, what's repainted about the Saleucami clone?

It's essentially Neyo without the battle-damage/weathering.
