Another fantastic wave. Hopefully the Orto Plutonia Obi-Wan and Rex aren't too far behind.

I wonder if we'll get a "hood up" version of Anakin someday  >:D

Awesome, I was just about to post this but you guys are all over it!

I don't know, I wasn't blown away right off the bat by anyone in this Wave, although Thi-Sen is pretty sweet. Sidious looks downright comical, like the hideous offspring of Palpatine and Monty Burns.

And somehow I feel like they didn't get the Tactical Droid right, but my recollection may be distorted. I have been looking forward to that release though.

What I do LOVE is 17 consecutive new figures with nary a re-pack among them anywhere!

Or a motorbike in Tron, do the deed and then I'm gone.

Couldn't Thire or Jek be considered repacks since both were issued in the Walmart 2-Packs first?   :P   ;)

Touche'  :-*

Yeah, technically I guess both would be re-packs of previously non-individually carded figures. For some reason I was thinking Thire was slightly differentiated, but I have no evidence to support that thought.

It actually raises a slight ethical dilemma - do I really need these? I normally eschew the straight re-packs but these 2 would have a somewhat unique appeal. Hmmm.

Whoooo put me down for a handful of Talz, I consider those good enough to mix in with the regular basic line, they don't look all too cartoonish to me.

I am stoked they are doing the Talz.  Kudos to them.  This is a great wave of figures - I really like the head sculpt on Sidious, the rest of him not so much.  A hood up Anakin is inevitable.  Obi and the Snow Clones have to be around the corner.

I completely agree on this, and will buy a handful myself.

I too will be picking up 5 - 6 more of these to customize for a small Talz colony from the Trespass episode.

I don't think it looks too bad, he is wearing a big ass parka after all.

I actually thought everything but the head looked normal and might even be a good base for an accurate realistic Anakin in the same duds.  So far though the Talz and Tactical Droid are my only purchases.

I'm shocked Sidious is in this wave! And I LOVE it!  :D Firstly, he's always featured as a hologram! But I love how Hasbro's dishing him out in his physical form! Man, oh man, great figure! Can't wait to pose him next to Dooku and Ventress!

And who's Commander Stone? I'm a meh with this guy ... just another clone. And like the commando droid. And, oh, I guess Annie's cool too - wish he had an alternate head.
