I'm liking the scanning crew. at least 5 for me, no more than 10 though. Aliens sweet.

I'm not liking Han/Chewie/R2. I guess I've come to the point that I have enough of them and these just don't offer enough of something different to warrant buying them. (Except those darn BaD pieces...)
I'm just a humble collector trying to make his way through the universe...of toy aisles.

I like just about every figure from the wave.  I don't really need a Chewie with a headset or Han with removeable stormy armor.  Especially at $7.50 but I would not mind getting them either.  I guess it's a must if you want the B-A-D?  Anyway, the Scanning Crew Member is fantastic with all the accesories.  That will be terrific with the BMF.  I still want my Bom Vimdin though!

Thank God for that. I mean can you imagine if we weren't going to get a choice of crates? I don't even want to think about it.

That's actually outstanding considering they're pushing both around the hangar...  I'm pretty excited, plus hopeful for a head variant or a deco variant to the head.  I think it's fantastic though.  It's definitely the best army builder of the Legacy Line that was shown.  Plus long overdue for a resculpt.

When will we get a new AT-ST driver using most of the parts is my question now. :)

The Scanning trooper alone makes this the most expensive wave for me. I'm in for at least two squads, if not a whole company. Could be two companies if a way is found to make a At-St driver.

In general, a great choice of figures. The only one I'm not sure about it the Han, Snap-on type armor has never seemed to look good or work good.

How long before someone customizes a couple of "stripped" Stormtroopers?  Han and Luke got that Stormtrooper armor somewhere....

Love the Imperial Scanning Tech.  Its definitely the type of figure that my Wife won't understand why I'm buying, but I will anyway.  (To borrow a phrase from Hasbro, he isn't "aggressive" enough).  I really like the background and prop type of packins that hasbro has included (the scanning crates, moisture vaporator, cantina bar & stools).  Makes the figures feel much more complete...  (Kind of a stormtrooper without a blaster....)

That's if Hasbro does not screw it up like the HRT. (Yes, I preached optimism to Jesse about this figure but I turned to the darkside once I found out he was barley going to ship and I am really pissed/bitter on that one!)

I think I know what you mean, but I have to admit that's an odd statement, no?  A wife "shouldn't" understand an adult man buying any kind of figure for himself!  That doesn't stop ME, though  ;)

Me too Jesse... there's so many uses for those crates. Han needs something to smuggle his drugs in. :P

Didn't the Bearded one change that mythos as well? He did not like Han shooting first surley he would not the drug smuggling.

Han smuggled drugs...in fact, when Luke is doing his lightsabre training on the Falcon, there are giant bags of coke stuffed up in the rafters behind him.
