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"?
I'm also pretty sure there are photos of Wioslea in the Cantina

Just as a side note on this wave, but I noticed that SSG got a more detailed answer to their previous question about the new Obi-Wan (it isn't just a VOTC repack).  Here's the details on its articulation:

Quote
A) Obi-Wan has ball and socket shoulders, elbows, knees, and ankles, along with swivel wrists and waist.

I'm sure there is head articulation which isn't mentioned here as well, but it sounds like a pretty good start to things.  Hopefully its the "ultimate" Old Ben we've been waiting for.

Wioslea looks very good, I think it's a must have, the rest looks quite good, too, but I don't know if I need them

I have seen production stills that show Wioslea in the Cantina so she was there, just very hard to seee.  Perhaps on the other side of the bar, in the back.  Like where Kt'ik (mantis thing) was at, but the opposite side of the bar.

I can't wait to see a picture of Trinto Duaba with the hood on.

This wave is still giving me tingles.

Yep, Wioslea was in the cantina.  Take a look at this pic, next to Luke's face but inside the alcove.  Also note in this pic the white scarf around Ponda Baba's neck!

But is he secretly a jedi too?

I've never felt the need to collect all the Cantina or Jabba's palace aliens, but Brainiac is very cool looking, plus the build a droid for this wave is very sharp looking.

Pons Limbic?  They just grabbed two anatomy terms for brain parts to give him a "clever" EU name?  Lame...  ::)

please tell me SCROTUMLIP is a joke.  1. because I have no idea who that guy is that could very well be his name  2. because if that is his name he'll never get made into an action figure with that name  3. whoever came up with that name, West End Game or whoever, has a better sense of humor then I thought



Also potf2.com has pics of spacetrooper, the big gun is BADASS.

Nah, it's a joke. I'm pretty sure his name is "Mosep" or something like that.

It's a joke from me, I made up the two names to play off of Jeff's post. Look at that face and tell me that does not look like a sack hanging from his nose. (Thanks for the humor compliment.)

Great Jack I'll have to use that as my Avatar/name somewhere.  I think this might've gotten lost in my replies

Looks like they may have modified a base Sandtrooper to accept a new backpack, and given him a new head & newish helmet.
