It's certainly an interesting lineup. Happy to see Jodo Kast, and Faie's been on a lot of wishlists. 5D6 RA-7 and *squints* M8 RA-7 (?) both are going to be awesome. Curses for them finding a way to make droid fans buy *everything.* Oh baby, I'm so loving the droids.
I really hope this isn't it for the year. They made good with numerous excellent Expanded Universe offerings (21 EU, I think?) so that's wonderful... but man, no new Cantina aliens yet?
They seemed to hit all the important marks. I guess on paper it's a really balanced line, but after Wave 2 (which we knew of for months), there's only a couple of new characters to be had. Kind of a bummer. And I'm no expert... but the renaming thing I don't much like. Before he was Commander Neyo, now he's a Saleucami Trooper. He was a Death Star Gunner, but now he's an Imperial Engineer. I thought we were getting *new* figures for the build-a-droid waves. ("New", I always thought, was a head, or a deco change. I'm not seeing any obvious differences here aside from the names, am I missing them?)
It's certainly a weird mix. I want to (and don't want to) complain all at once. But... droids! So many droids!
(I wonder if/when Hasbro will ever start to market and sell the displays they make for these photos. It looks cool, I'd put one in my toy room.)
