The sad thing is no Podracer 2-pack whether it's Ratts or Clegg. Those guys are so small they should be released two at a time (besides Mawhonic)... but I suppose it's like the Ugnaughts and I should deal with it.

Not too excited by this wave actually, and I'm not sure why because it looks great. I think I'll pass on the Podracers and just buy the Eopie stickers from someone here. This is definitely the year of Obi-Wan though, after this wave I'll never have to buy another version of him again! :D

I'm not sure what's accurate or not, but Rebelscum's slide-show has a note at the bottom of the E1 slide that says, "NOTE: Ratts Tyrell will NOT be included in this wave....instead it will be Clegg Holdfast."

Funny, I like the whole wave except for this.  Mechno Sidious feels more like an accessory than a figure to me.

Well that sucks.   :(  Why would you replace him with an equally tiny figure?  Maybe this is another case of "No there's not 2 Ugnaughts" and "No the tables aren't included".

While true, I don't need him to do much else. Who knows, maybe the picture is a mock up and we'll indeed get a Holo Dooku styled Sidious?

The Sidious hologram is accurate size as it is now, I hope they don't change it. :P

A pretty nice wave it seems...  Obi-Wan and Cleg are my favorites from it with the holo Sidious and Gungan next.  Podracers are always low on my wishlist though so I'm not really thrilled to see them filling another slot that I'd rather have seen a new Naboo Guard, Soldier, or some such.

EDIT:  By Cleg I meant the red suited freak from Mos Espa, whatever his name is...  I forget now, but not the pod dude.  The red spacer freak is pretty badass looking.

That is Rum Sleg :-*  And he's keen.  This is my favorite stuff that was shown, otherwise, meh :-\

I am all over this wave. I need to replace my old EPI Obi's with this SA version. OOOH, and I'm SO army building the Gungans! 40 for me please!

Others in the wave are pretty solid. We've needed the mechano chair. Rum is cool. Not high on my list, but worth the buy. I'm actually not all that thrilled with the build-a-droid for this wave. BUt I'll be happy to own it. I'll have lots of extra pieces for this one.

Sal you have to open up a trade/sale thread called Sal's Sloppy second's. :D
You have a lot of great extras coming! I may take you up on the droid parts!
