Ruiner, I may have your back on that one.  I am pretty confident I won't want that Vader at all.

Cool - you know where you can find me.

It's so weird to me that there is so much interest in variations...

I'm not really interested in the "variation" on this one so much as I'm trying to help folks find the version WITH the saber... I mean, even if you're just buying the set for fodder, wouldn't you rather have the set with an extra saber than the set without the extra weapon?  ;)

Got my cade/talon pack today w/cade saber.  Little wierd but I'm kinda guessing why, the unlit hilt has a hole in it to plug a blade into it but if it already come w/lit saberhilt why does it need a hilt with plug?  I tried the red blade from Talon and it fits in there good so I don't know if that's H's intention cause I know there was some comic cover art of Cade w/red saber but I'm not sure if it was the same saber as the one he comes with.

side note thinking of customizing Talon and slicing/dicing/glueing with the elbows of Dominatrix Padme and Talon's arms.  If I can find the Padme somewhere that is haven't seen her in a while.

So I'm confused, but is the set with the Grand Moff guy out?  Is that the one with white Vader?  I'm very confused wtf is even out on shelves right now.  We just got the first Legacy packs in not all that long ago (Skorr/Ventress, & Durge/Anakin), and I'm just not sure what I'm even looking for these days.

I think only Wave 1 (Ani/Durge, Asajj/Skorr, Ani/Droid) and Wave 2 (Cade/Talon, Legacy Guards, Fenn/Dengar, Leia/Tobbi) have hit retail... 

The only people I have seen report finding Wave 3 (SotE Leia/Xizor, Thrawn/Karrde, Vader/Trachta, White Vader/Endor Leia) have gotten them from an e-tailer/on-line source and not at regular retail stores.

Here's another variation to get everyone up in arms. I picked up this wave yesterday and the Cade/Talon pack is labeled as set #2 in stead of set #4.

Yeah, I guess.  But I wouldn't hold out on one over the other for it. 

When I got mine, I didn't know there was any sort of variation... heh.  I guess I would have still opened it anyways...

Just an FYI, I picked up the Deena Shan Variant and it really is an entirely different head sculpt. I found 2 and bought them both, Here is a clear pic:

I saw the Leia & Tobbi Dala comic 2-pack yesterday.  Meh.  I may very well pass on this and the other Marvel 2-pack in this current wave.

I see EE has a new case pack up for pre order, Legacy Comic Packs Wave 5, which confirms a few of the rumors out there:

1x Dark Empire II #1: Clone Emperor & Luke Skywalker
1x Republic #82: Commander Faie & Quinlan Vos
1x X-Wing Rogue Squadron #32: Borsk Fey'la & Wedge Antilles (Academy outfit)
1x Rebellion #3: Luke Skywalker & Deena (Stealth Armor)
1x Outlander #TBD: Ki-Adi Mundi & Sharad Hett

The big question that pops out at me is - "do we really need another Luke/Deena set?" ::)

Nothing too exciting, besides the Bothan and Quinlan Vos (if it's his Jedi outfit version). Aren't we getting Commander Faie in the upcoming ROTS wave? I actually wish they'd gone with a cool Aayla repaint from the Twilight cover art.

Anyways, I'm really digging the Bothan if he's done right. He's got loads of customizing potential...Borsk Feyla's a Bothan, right? :-X :-[

It is.

It's not new, though. From what I can tell, it's a partial repaint/kitbash. The head and legs look like they're from the first Vos figure, and the torso and arms look like they're from A'Sharad Hett. This would've been a good chance to give Vos knees.

Anyways, I'm really digging the Bothan if he's done right. He's got loads of customizing potential...Borsk Feyla's a Bothan, right? :-X :-[

Yes.

No, it's his cousin Frank.  ;D

Too bad EE doesn't have pictures yet.

Also, nice to know that head sculpt on Deena is that different.

I do not mind the Luke /Deena Pack I am more disappointed in Vos not having bendy knees and getting Wedge in a useless outfit. I would rather see him in a SA X-Wing or Hoth outfit. Reuse those great bodies....now!
