Emperor - I think it looks terrible

Hoth Rebel Soldier - Definately buying multiples.  I know the coat is not perfect but I want SA.  

Luke - Good enough for me.  

Leia - Pretty good I think.  

Ugnaughts - I don't think I will get them.

Needa - Love it!

Needa - Looks a bit too skinny for an Imp Officer but he's still cool. Buy.

Luke - God I wish that robe wasn't soft goods. Soft goods and Luke figures NEVER work (see VOTC Luke, 30AC Rancor Luke) but the arm is cool. I'll buy it but I'm on the fence until we see final carded images.

Leia - Good reuse of the best VOTC Leia parts. They just need to darken her outfit to a tan color otherwise this is nothing more than an inaccurate ANH Leia.

Ugnaughts - I'll probably get two sets.

Hoth Soldier - Looks great, if he's at least a regular scale I'm getting at least 4.

Emperor - Awful. I don't understand how a 1997 Emperor headsculpt is 1000% better than all the other Emperor headsculpts we've gotten since POTF2. Pass, and I might hide every one I find so nobody has to buy it.

Looking at this wave more it's actually really disappointing. Everything looks too skinny and inaccurate. Hoth Troop looks too short and skinny, Needa looks too skinny, Luke's robe is way too big, Leia is in an outfit from a different movie and Palpatine has one of the worst headsculpts I've ever seen.

I hope the loose/carded pics are better.

I am going to remain skeptical of the Hoth Trooper until we see it in true perspective.

Somebody should have thought about it before letting that "press image" get put together.  Showing him the same size as Leia and smaller than than the Ugnaughts is killing my buzz for him.  He would be the first Star Wars item I have bought since Smuggler Lando...but not going to get too excited...Hasbro has let me down before...Death Star Trooper, I'm looking at you... Everytime I see that Image, I have flashbacks to the other Hoth Trooper....

I will come in here and Crow ..and hope I have to eat a whole flock.

Is there any info as to whether Luke's wrist panels close? Or will they permanently be open?

Diddly- Leia was indeed in her ANH robes during that scene.  I don't think there was any color variation either.

The Ugnaughts appear to use the same body underneath the tool garments, hands too.  They must be a 2-pack, but could almost be running change if enough accessories were included.

Oh ok... I haven't watched ESB in a while and thought she was wearing a tan colored robe that was pretty high up on her neck.

seems like it would be a lot of work to have the working. If I had to guess, I'd guess they'll be permanently open.

This is a nice wave for me, The hoth rebel trooper comes with a machine gun, ughnaughts are different from potf2 sculpt, Leia was in esb final scene with her anh robe but with another hairdress, luke is well depicted, accurate. Needa a good aquisition for officers

The emperor seems his head looks like the original esb 1980 hologram, a bit green skin.

That Hoth trooper has two heads... are they identical? 

The cannon looks good too.

It looks like Hasbro is picking up where they left off with the TSC Endor Rebel troops.  They recognize the need for some individuality, and we're getting a running change on the Hoth trooper.  NICE!  

I think one of the Hoth trooper heads has the big walrus mustache that you see on one of the Hoth rebels.  The other one looks clean shaven.  Plus, it looks like there are two different hats as well.  I like running changes like this in army builders.  I'll probably be buying at least 4 of each running change.  And with the different hats you can probably do some mixing and matching to break things up so that the Hoth rebel army doesn't look like a bunch of clones.

In that pic of Luke, do those hips look super articulated? And what the hell is that flesh colored phallic accessory on the ground in front of him?  :o  :P
