I seriously hope that they've updated the sculpts on the figures that they are re-releasing / re-painting, otherwise the Deluxe line may end up being the end of Kubricks for me.  I just ended up picking up the Parco black pauldron sandtrooper only to see it now re-released as a basic figure.  Argh!

I'm in exactly the same boat as I Am Sith. Picked up the Sandtrooper about six months ago. I really hope that there is some difference with this version (even if it's only as minor as the changes they made to the Snowtrooper in the DX2 wave).

I'm really not blown away by these announcements at all...

I'm going to guess chases now for this series:

Gonk (in R5-D4 box)
Academy Biggs (in Floppy Hat Luke Box)
White or Gray hair* Ben (in OWK box)

*depending on which version we get as the reg. release.

:P

I love all three of those choices.  Here’s what I’d love to see:

-Luke Tatooine Telescoping Lightsaber
-Obi-Wan Kenobi (Alternate Hair color) Telescoping Lightsaber
-Gonk Droid in place of R5-D4
-Some cantina alien in place of Garindan (lots of options here, Hammerhead tops my list)

That said, I’d be shocked if one of the variants wasn’t just a weathered or different pauldron Sandtrooper.  It’s just too easy.  They could also make a Tusken variant with rifle instead of gaffi stick or maybe make him a hollow cheek variant.

Vinyl Ben with the hood up would be ok (but it doesn't say that), and Garindan rocks. I think this wave is likely to be the first since series 3 where I don't buy a box.  :-\

I'd like a hood up Ben and Garindan is a fine addition as others have said, though not what was hoped for. 

As for the Sandtrooper, I just painted one of the orange pauldron's black and it was done.  New weapon might make it interesting enough though.

This is like seasons 2-3 of Lost, Medicom is starting to milk us for all we're worth and have no end in sight.

Not only does the Sandtrooper have a black pauldron but he seems to have both hands full.

I can't see **** in that picture other than the landspeeder, which is SWEET!  Definitely going to have to get this release too!

I like that Ben.  The DT saber is a nice touch.
