I saw this wave today, except for Leia, Nikto and the Ewoks, and only bought the Klaatu guy.  I might pick up the Prune Face guy if I see him around again.  I thought the Luke looked pretty bad; the sandstorm Luke without all the extra gear is still a better representation, IMHO.

The Rancor Keeper guy is a worthless resculpt; he doesn't look that much better than the POTF2 version (although I'm sure the added articulation is a bonus for a guy who doesn't really do anything but cry).

The biggest disappointment for me, though, is Nein Numb.  I don't want a B-Wing pilot Nein Numb, I want the one with the vest; the way the vintage and POTF2 versions looked.  So close, yet so far.

The Klaatu guy is fantastic, though.  Work of art.

Anybody try carving out his chest and inserting the folded piece?

Do it.  The figure is freaking fantastic.

Totally agree that Malakili isn't that much better than the POTF2 one, so much so that I saved my $8.50 and passed on him altogether.  He did do a little more than cry though, give him some credit for the bouncing man boobs action.  I know I wouldn't strut mine in front of a running movie reel.

You can't think of this as a Nien Numb figure.  You have to think of it as a generic Sullustan Rebel pilot the same way you did with the Evolutions version that this is the repaint of.  Nien Numb is short.  This figure is no joke about 1.5" taller than a Nien Numb figure should have been.  As far as I'm concerned, Hasbro simply put the wrong name on it.  This is not Nien Numb.

Personally, I'm fine with this being Nien Nunb - sure it's a very scene specific version, and not one we asked for or necessarily wanted, but it works for me until the real deal comes along. Plus, if repainting an existing figure to serve as case filler that helps to cost out all-new figures like Slave Leia, Panno, the Nikto Gunner, Giran and even Malakili I'm all for it.

I'm already kicking myself for not buying Panno.  I'll swing by on my way into work tomorrow and see if he's still around.

And if Malikili's boobs had been articulated, I would have considered getting him as well.  Maybe someday...

I agree with this description of "coping with Nein Numb".  He's not Nein in the cockpit of the Falcon, he's just some Sullustan bullshitting with the humans before battle.  He flies a B-Wing, which he ejects from during the battle of Endor as he crashes it into a Star Destroyer.  He floats around in space, but then the Death Star blows up and he's pushed off into deep space by the ensuing shockwave which doesn't kill him, but instead sends him on a long journey.

He's later picked up by a harem ship on the way to Jabba's Palace...  The ship's captain realizes though that Jabba just got offed the other day, so now he's free to open up as an inter-stellar ship of pleasure, where this Sullustan lives out his days in sexual ecstacy.  Look for photonovels and artwork soon.

Does anybody know what Panno's weird white/black communicator looking thing is and where it's supposed to go? I assumed there was a little holster for it like the 06 Long Snout had but there isn't.

It's a communicator and it can fit in either of the little softgoods pockets/holsters on his chest. It just slides right in and the cape holds it tight. :)

I love that feature, maybe Hasbro will keep that in mind when they do a Grievous with cape again.

Good point on Grievous' cape.  I'd love to see that with some saber hilts for sure.

If anyone happens across an extra Ugnaught v2 and doesn't mind picking him up and sending him my way, I'd appreciate it.  Maybe he won't be a big deal, but I haven't seen one yet and don't want to miss out.

I found one tonight along with the ewoks.  I never thought I'd be excited about getting ewoks for my collection, but they look great on the Endor shelf!

Our MN group may have a spare for you if you can't find this soon.  My spare is spoken for, but I know a few of the other guys have picked up extras this last week.

Thanks, just let me know if it ends up that way.  I'm keeping an eye out.  I'll update here if I find one in the short term.
