Indeed. I can forsee this being a very expensive wave for me. I'm not going to be passing on anything in this wave. I really would like to get a squad or two of that spacetrooper and I think I may army build Han/Luke as well. With the helmets on they'll work great as regular stormtroopers.

So has Wioslea always been a Jedi? :P

Oh, now I gotta see a hi-res WED pic (and jawa, of course!).  Agreed- as an OT-only collector, this wave is very special to me  :P

Not a bad little wave at ALL there.  Not the best wave for me, that's still Wave 2 CW2D stuff, but a good wave regardless.  Very sharp looking figures, lots of articulation and goodness, and besides Luke's height everything seems fantastic.

I love the wave myself.  The headsculpt on Han looks really good there I think.  I am a sucker for any cantina patrons.  I can not wait for Treadwell and I can always use another Jawa.  Hopefully Kenobi turns out good.  Dice is just a cool pack-in.  I forget what the B-A-D droid is for this?  Was it an orange R5?

Wave looks awesome so far. Why the lightsaber with Wiossel though?

It's Wal Mart. I'm sure the just gave him Ben's accessory by mistake.

Nice pictures though. I agree, stellar wave.

There are two astromech B-a-D figures in this wave - R2-N6 and R5-A2.

Hasbro showed the saber with Wioslea at SDCC too (see link above for pic), so it's probably not Wal-Mart's fault but rather the fault of the Hasbro photo guy who has no idea who Wioslea is...  :P

So why are we getting a WED with Jawa and that alien thing that comes with Freddy, but no tables for Obi-Wan and the brain guy?

Well i think Hasbro chose wisely to give us additional characters and cut out the tables for cost. Would have been nice to get the tables but the WED Droids and Dice are much more awesome.

Maybe Hasbro is going to try to claim on the back of the card that Wiosley was a Jedi during the clone wars... just a gimmick for the kiddos.

I think those are the two best looking B-a-D figures yet.  Really excited about this wave.  Did Wioslea have Jedi style robes on in the movie?  I don't recall.

Yes, you can sort of see it here. But just do a google image search for "wioslea" and you'll see it.

There are EU hints that Wioslea was in fact a Jedi...or posed as one

Yah but why does Wioslea need to look so nutty looking? He/she has his/her toung stuck out and eyes pointing in different directions. Very Jar Jar.

Well, she might have spent some time in the Cantina before Luke and Co. got there...  Yeah, I was thinking they did a poor job with the figure because of the eyes, until I saw a reference photo.  Kind of looks a bit "Muppetish".  Was George Lucas channeling "Sweetums"?
