Wooof, Endor Trooper, Yoda, Wicket, Ackbar, Luke, Gam Guard, Party Barge R2

Wedge appears to be the guy next to Woof, but no good shots of him yet...

Whoa! Did someone throw vanilla pudding in Wickets face or somthing? Very nice looking wave though, I'm super pumped about this one. Tha Gamorrean Guard is excellent and Ackbar is also brilliant. I can't wait!

I like most of these. Yoda, Wicket and R2 are a little tough to swallow as a single figure @ $10 a pop though.  Hoping Target and others will have them down in the $7-8 range before long.

Endor Trooper = greatness...  I can see him coming with the vest now as well.  Love that he's sporting the removable trenchcoat, which looks to be basically Han's, which is pretty accurate.  It should be greener, like Leia's poncho should be greener, but we'll see.  I'm geeked regardless.

Ackbar, Wicket, and GGuard all look fantastic.  I'm happy to have Wedge available on a basic card since he's fairly generic and I'd hoped to nab a couple to customize.

Woof's cool.  He was a favorite of mine as a kid because of the skirt.

Can't really see R2 there...  Good stuff though.  I'm pleased.  Luke almost looks like they changed him up a little, as well.  Maybe I'm just seeing things there though.

I think he's got ball hips now and better proportions than the previous Luke. Not sure about the headsculpt though, I thought the last one was better. Hopefully they're swappable.

Something seems off on the Gam Guard...not fat enough?  He must be missing the soft goods

He has a removable hat...  A removable hat.  That's neat, and not something I was expecting them to go through with.

Like the hat, but agree with scott that the proportions look a little funny.  Maybe a custom, baggie soft goods onesie is called for...

I can see what Scott is saying about the Guard as well, but aside from that, I'm really digging this wave.  A lot of resculpts that I've really been looking forward to (Ackbar, Wicket, and G. Guard), plus a nice mix for the rest of the wave.  They all look kind of shiny to me, but I think that will be changed in the final product.  Really nifty wave though overall.

The face looks long to me...  A "horseface", if you can have that on a guy that looks like a big pig.   :-\

I'm happy with it, don't get me wrong, but I see some of the issues.  I think a skirt's coming and just not there for whatever reason (they don't often have people setting this stuff up, who are up on what each figure should have on and stuff).  I see something odd in the sculpt too.  I'll happily add a small army of them though.

The Luke looks much, MUCH better than the LC version! Ball-hinged hips! YAY! Much better proportions, and, although the facial sculpt isn't quite dead-on, his hair is sculpted more wavier, which looks more true to the movie.

The only thing I don't get is that Yoda was supposedly supposed to be a repack, but he is obviously a new sculpt. Also, he comes with that blast effect, which doesn't match him to ROTJ.

Pretty good wave.  Ackbar, the Guard (agree - the skirt thing is missing?), Wicket and Luke all really shine.  The Trooper and Woolf - wow.  I'm also glad to see the Sandtrooper card - it's exactly as I imagined it would be.   ;D

Yes, from the Ewoks cartoon.
