Alternate torso?  How would that work?

busty and bustier  :o

I liked Jay's idea better...  ;)

So Nikto sports the deck gun that snapped onto the railing, eh?  Wonder if we're going to have something to snap that onto?   ;)

What exactly does "insert molded knee" and "insert molded ankle" mean? Does that mean no articulation?

It can probably be mounted to the Skiff's front and/or back rails.

I'm EXTREMELY happy about the Nikto; even though he comes with the deck rail gun (which was used by the yellow padded vest Nikto that we got back in the POTF2 cinema scene) it appears that this one is actually the sculpt of the never-before-made Nysad pictured here:

I like most of the wave mentioned.  I really do not understand Hasbro's passion for Ten Nunb though.  He must sell well I guess.  Yeah, Nikto looks good with the rail gun.  Gotta like that!

The looks at this wave so far look pretty promising.  Hopefully we'll get a look at the full/finished lineup at Toy Fair.

Same here, but I can only guess that in this case that the passion had more to do with their passion for easy profit if this turns out to be a simple re-paint.

Great expectative for new Malakili, this toy should come with removable hood, tunic over waist, vibro blade, and a chain to pull the rancor, like gentle giant statue.

Action figures are evolving, hope this Malikili won´t be shorter and smaller than potf2 one.

I think he should be smaller and about the same height as the recent TAC Jedi Knight Luke. That the POTF2 version of Malikili one seemed oversized to me.

At Toy Fair it was confirmed that this wave has been bumped back... sounds like it will now be Wave 10.

That's disappointing to hear, I was really looking forward to that wave.  Is the TPM wave getting bumped forward then, since we're getting a look at those figures at Toy Fair?

They must be waiting to finish up all the extra details on the Sail Barge and Jabba.   :-*

Indications that I got were that the ROTJ wave was going to be pushed back beyond the line/packaging reset.  ROTJ could potentially be one of the first waves of the new Droid Factory series in the new packaging.
