I prefer calling it "Legacy Wave 6" instead of 2009 Wave 2, but that's just me.

I concur.

Yeah I'm not a fan of breaking things up by year.  It's confusing.  This is perhaps my most anticipated wave, however Wave 5's BAD R5 is easily one of my most wanted droids.  That wave, as cool as Cantina guys are, is not holding a candle to my anticipation for a new Hoth Soldier.

If they reset to BD#1, then I think it would be safe to call it wave 2 of 2009.

Well, the numbering on the ANH themed Wave 5 (aka 2009 Wave 1) isn't starting over.  The pics we've seen list Stormtrooper Luke as BD #30, Stormtrooper Han as #31, etc.

I prefer calling it "Legacy Wave 6" instead of 2009 Wave 2, but that's just me.

If that's the case, then I'll have to go along.  :)

The carded images of the ANH wave had BD numbers that followed those of wave 4 (ROTS).  So perhaps calling this wave 6 is totally appropriate.

That would actually be wave 5.

;D

I agree as well, I'd just as soon like to continue the wave numberings as long as the cardback/line name doesn't change.  Heck, I don't think they need to change it as much as they do, although I guess I understand the "fresh packaging" marketing standpoint.  They could have just continued to pack things on those OTC cardbacks and that's be fine too.

I was just wondering if this wave is officially the next wave after the ANH lineup.  It seems like it must be, as the entire wave has been confirmed, but I didn't know if that was the exact order or not.  It really seems like we should be getting pictures of this wave before too long - it could possibly be here by Feb/Mar I would think.

Hmmm...  in a Q&A last Fall, Hasbro said:

** Yes, there will be a new Ugnaught in 2009 (we could not cost it out as 2-pack however).

But there in the picture are two distinctly different Ugnaughts. ???

I wonder if they were able to swing a 2-pack after all or if the two are a running change or variants or what?

It looks good... but wait until you find out it's only 3" tall.   :-X

Wow, awesome.

I'll definitely be army building the Hoth Trooper, it looks pretty good. The Ugnaughts and Needa are cool too, but the rest of the wave is about as exciting as cream cheese, at least in my opinion. That green Emperor is gonna rot on the pegs. :-\

Yeah, but they also said Obi-Wan and Braniac wouldn't come with the tables, so we could be pleasantly surprised again.

Hmm. I really like those Ugnaughts actually. Very, very cool.

Looking forward to all the army building goodness this wave has to offer! :)


EDIT: Where's the B-A-D HK-47? ???

Well... the soft goods on Luke is not what I wanted or expected.  Beyond that, he looks good.  Leia, too.  Hoth Trooper=Awesome, Ugnaughts=okay didn't really want them, Needa=ditto, Emperor=this is an improvement?

It looks like a decent wave.  I'm not totally crazy about Luke and Leia being in the wave to begin with, but they seem decently done.  Even though they gave Luke his lightsaber.  ;D

Needa - Finally a good Imperial Officer.  And Captain Needa finally gets his due.

Hoth Rebel - Very nice.  The sculpt looks far better than the Saga version.  And well articulated.  But it looks like the lower portion of the coat was cut off.  I wonder if there's  supposed to be a softgoods extension to the coat.

Ugnaughts - Very cool to see both of them.  They look good, even though the image has them out of scale with the other figures.  But I'm still confused about Hasbro's response, saying that we'd only get one.  Are they going to do this as a running change, or will there be a 2-pack?

Emporer - Monkey faced emporer it is!  And damn, is it ugly.

Luke - The head sculpt is actually pretty good.  The open wrist is cool.  Him getting the hand tweaked by 2-1B was the coolest part of that scene, IMO.  But the lightsaber?  LOL!

Leia - I honestly would have rather seen a Hoth Leia resculpt.  But it makes sense to release this Leia as a companion to Luke in this wave.
