Oh, he actually is a Scanning/Filing/Faxing Tech, (kind of a space secretary), not a member of the Stow-away Scanning Crew...   ;D

Either that or Hasbro is allowing swappers to break into the packaging before it ships from the factory.  Still, a funny picture.

The likeness of the headsculpt is pretty close to Booger from Revenge of the Nerds.

You guys nailed my thoughts: Where's the gear & what's up with the bad photoshop job on the picture?

Figure looks great!

Wouldn't it have been better to include the Concept Ki-Adi Mundi in the ROTS wave, and move the Concept IG-88 over to the ANH wave? That way, the ANH wave could have stayed OT-themed, with the ROTS wave PT-themed.

Even though, it's still an interesting wave of figures.

They used the stock photo of Piett for for the kepi, eyes and ears and gave him a new mouth. It looks like one of the those bad police "have you seen this man" renderings.

Yes. What have they done with our scanning equipment!?

Also why are Kal Fas's eyes looking more suited to "Bossk with stoner eyes?" They should be black - as shown on the card!

That's going to be pretty disappointing if they took the equipment out.  I was already getting visions of a pile of those next to a dozen or so troopers.  Without the gear that number's going to plummet.

I noticed this as well. I really hope they fix this since it just doesn't look right. :-\

If we're getting dicked over on that gera, that sucks bad.  That smacks of a, "We couldn't include it, sorry, but you can buy it in an exciting battlepack of figures you don't want at all with the boxes!" type deal.  Or am I being a cynical?

Nice looking figure though, without a doubt.  Long overdue army builder for the Empire.  Hopefully translated later to a new AT-ST Driver with some spiffy new arms.

I'd also take a redeco of him with a grey kepi as a "Bridge Crewman" as well.

All the figures look really nice, pretty excited about this wave, but I agree with the sentiments that Saurins eyes should be black, instead of looking like he just took a hit off something.

On another note, looking at these carded makes me sad, there's so much extra room in those bubbles.....looks like the days of great pack ins and value for our dollars coming to an end. I mean, would it have killed them to include the scanning boxes, or maybe a cantina table with the bar patrons or something to make those bubbles seem a bit less empty?

Maybe there is hope on the Scanning Crew as RS has pulled down their post from yesterday.

Maybe the gear is behind the card insert... otherwise, it would be disappointing.  Overall, the wave is good.  But why did they pack the oversized Ewok Stormie helmet with Han?  Looks silly.  And that Han is a great upgrade to the VOTC version.

A) I don't think they would hid an accessory like that behind the insert, especially if it is/was a running change
B) I don't think it would even fit since the insert is already hiding the BAD piece on the right side of the bubble

I know this figure is boring to many of you guys, but WOW, I am all in.  I will be disappointed if it doesn't have the case, I will still buy them though.  I just need to get a bunch of generic heads ready.
