Is the Luke short like the previous pilot Lukes or is he a normal height?

Luke height is shorter and very accurate. He is perfectly scaled with current Lukes. The only details missing are on the helmet, it's also missing some wear. The helmet is also a new sculpt to accommodate the new head. It's very apparent on the goggles. He may be the best figure in the wave.

I found this wave at Wal Mart while on my lunch break.  I like when I find out about new items showing up and then a day or two later find them 8)  Lots of good figures in this wave, though I get the biggest kick out of Willrow Hood for the figure's sheer obscurity.

Too bad Target seems to be lagging. At the rate they're going, they won't get tins wave until after the holidays.

Found the repacks from this wave this morning, but none of the Empire figures.  I also heard about this wave being found in the DC area.  It looks like they've hit in a big way all over the east coast.

Found this wave today at a Wally near Albany, NY.  I only grabbed R2-X2 and Willrow.  Feeling uber-nerdy that I grabbed Willrow instead of snowspeeder Luke, but I just couldn't chance that I wouldn't see Willrow again (thereby guaranteeing that the opposite will happen).

Just came home with about half of the figures in this wave.  But Zuckuss, the AT-AT Driver and the Concept Snowtrooper eluded me.  For today, at least.

I found half this wave at WM yesterday. Picked up Luke, At-At driver, Concept Snowtrooper and the R2 unit. The others I missed by moments.

Did Hasbro have some kind of excuse for including R2-X2 into this wave? It's just that it seems bananas that they would include a simple droid as a basic figure when they could have integrated it into the BAD figure system.  ???

Really nice pics. I can't wait to add that Zuckuss to my collection.

I'm looking forward to this wave. I want a squads worth of the Concept Snowtrooper (4-6).

That concept looks much like Commander Bacara, IMO. Perhaps that's where the got the idea for Bacara from. Makes sense.

I picked up Luke & Zuckuss this past weekend.  Passed on pretty much everything else.  I wasn't too impressed with the Snowtrooper & personally, I prefer the McQuarrie version much better.  The AT-AT Driver's helmet looks ridiculous.

I've still seen nothing of this wave...  I've heard it's shipping in a display, is this correct?  I saw a display tonight in the center aisle at WM, but it was loaded with 90% ROTS figures and a couple ROTJ's.  Nothing else.

I'm thinking I'll probably pass on the AT-AT Driver. Does anyone know which one of the repacks comes with his BAD part?

I did a little hunting, but I'm not sure which figure shares the same piece as the AT-AT Driver.  He comes with the torso, but I'm not sure who else does as well.

Bacara includes the torso repack.
