Cool. However, I like the question about the head ball joints.

Awesome ewoks there, can never have enough of those guys.

Collectors who don't like ewoks are the same people who kick puppies.

The new slave Leia looks good.  I can't wait to see more pics of the production figure with her accessories.

It's a good thing the OoC thread is closed.  ;D Nice looks on the Ewok!

i love me some Ewok 2-pack goodness.  That may be the best set of the wave, and a great army builder. :)

 ;D Awesome. I don't know who the other ewok is, but they are both awesome. I wish they would have done Lumat in this group. I wondering when they are going to get to wicket/logray/Lumat and ewoks who jacked the At-St.

The Ewoks look good.  I'm still a little disappointed that they've gone generic with using the same body over and over again, but if it helps us get more ewoks and they can make them different enough through their accessories, I guess I'm for it.

When you think about it, they were pretty generic looking in the movie though.  Some height differences, but otherwise only a few "stood out".  Logray, Teebo, Wicket, and Chief Chirpa had slightly different builds, but the randoms like Lumat, Paploo, etc., all basically looked the same.

I'm especially ok with it for the more obscure ones like that new one with the pitch fork weapon.

I'll buy as many Ewoks using that body as they care to make.

Since they're not likely to top the last removable-helmet Vader any time soon, I'd like to see Emperor's Wrath Vader re-done with the VOTC sculpt.  Also, a resculpted hand to hold the staff properly would turn the ROTS Royal Guard into an ideal ROTJ Royal Guard.

The A-Wing Fighter and the Evolutions set with Ten Numb and the B-Wing Pilot are almost singlehandedly responsible for rekindling my interest in Star Wars figures.  There are just so many characters from Home One and the second Death Star that need to be made or re-made.  Sometimes I wonder if the battle above Endor and the search for Shmi Skywalker hold such a mystique for me just because Hasbro hardly ever makes figures representing them (though on both counts they've done an outstanding job catching up this year).

Given the number of figures already announced for this wave, I think I'll continue to toss and turn at night awaiting Mon Mothma, Nien Nunb, Sim Aloo, a Y-Wing Pilot, Ackbar, Ackbar painted brown wearing a hat (AKA Mon Calamari Officers), the spirits of Yoda and Sebastian Shaw and the Emperor's Throne.

This wave is looking pretty neat. I'm exicted to have the opportunity to get some skiff guards. The Sarlaac needs some food. :P Rancor keeper seems like an odd basic figure choice. If he's not a chase figure or something similar Hasbro might just have a pegwarmer worse than Yarna.

DS2 Luke's got the flap open on his tunic.  That's a surprise.

As long as his head fits on the 2008 Sandstorm Luke, I think that is OK
