This wave is a winner with me. I wish they would have done Luke & Han Stormtrooper like this a long time ago. Would have never got the Comic pack version and put all the work I did into them. Oh well, I guess they always find some way to screw up ::).

This wave is great. I liked the Jawa from last year, and the WED Droid pack-in is a long-awaited figure. I could probably do without the old Ben, since it looks like a VOTC repack. I hope it's not, but the slide makes it look that way.

I'm really surprised that the Jawa looks to be a completely new sculpt (with a huge ion blaster!).  Not sure if it's been mentioned in here, but Hasbro said in the show's press release that Old Ben's and Brainiac's tables would not be included.

I'm pretty psyched for this wave. Not a looser in the bunch. Too bad about the tables, but awesome about the new holsters on the storm troopers.

Luke looks a little shortened in the torso...  I wonder if maybe they're going to make the pin in the ball/socket torso a little shorter to give him the shorter height?  It looks like the two torso halves are more compressed on Luke anyway.

Space Trooper is just insanely cool because he's got the actor's headsculpt underneath from photos and that rocks.  New gun too, very cool.

I like this wave in general, and I'd bet we see those tables someday soon.  ;)

I know that was Hasbro's initial intention, but the factory apparently tweaked it and now doesn't have that feature. I wouldn't even mind if they delayed this wave to reincorporate the feature, just to give us an "accurate" Stormy Luke. Heck, they could even throw in a wet trash compactor head and the commlink from the TSC Garindan and we'd be golden.

I love this wave - I love the Storie Twins, I love the cantina monsters, I love everything about it - great choices, great accessories!

Like others, I will most likely try to grab a few extra tables for my cantina display.  :)

They mentioned because of cost the tables won't be included. They said because of the "2-packs" the tables were too much money.

D'oh... that's what I get for looking at images and not reading everything in the thread yet (I'm still trying to catch up from being out of town this weekend).     :-\

I cannot immediately think of any wave in the history of the hobby that's better than this one.
