Very happy with this wave. Can't wait for Wicket, Ackbar, and the Guard.  :)

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

I really like what they did w/ the prequel cardbacks... Anakin, Sidious, and Grievous are probably my favorites, the way Hasbro fitted the character image looks great. And the image of Sidious and Clone Trooper against the background look great.

I'm wondering what Hasbro will do w/ Jedi Luke for the ROTJ wave... he didn't get a "Jedi Outfit/Final Duel" cardback in the Vintage days, did he?

In the vintage days, they did luke from jabba's palace... other than that no. I think the new luke cardback photo will be the scene when luke throws his lightsaber away then he refused the emperor offer.   I want to see Wedge's cardback the most, I am sure it is my icon photo.

I am excited for this wave.  Ackbar, Wooof, Gam. Guard (the missing fur is annoying) are fantastic.  Wicket is finally redone.  Luke, R2, Endor Commando are ok.  Wedge is Wedge but excited he is coming on vintage card.

Although that would be a great picture, I personally would like to see this image of Luke



Especially since we got a really crappy action figure based on this image way back in 2003.

I wouldn't be surprised if the final sample includes plastic/softgoods fur. Besides, all we've seen so far are prototypes.

As cool as this wave is, seeing Wedge on the card finally will probably top everything.  I expect the photo they use to be the one Matt has as his icon.  This and the Sandtrooper really make this line for me.

Interesting picture choice.  Essentially the point where Luke is farthest from being a Jedi and closest to taking Vader's place at the Emperor's side.

It would appear so judging by the belt hole for the saber. He also has the new SS Luke style helmet as does Dak. I hate that body, I hope this was a mistake. If so I will buy it for the helmet upgrade.

Well according to Wookiepedia Wedge and Luke are both around the same height, so I think it's actually more film accurate than the "normal" pilot body. I do want to know which Wedge headsculpt they used though, as the eyebrows on the Target X-Wing one make it look pretty bad.

According to the slideshow, Wedge will be removed from the ROTJ wave because Hasbro's still perfecting his facial sculpt. Oh well. :(

True that, but many kids/collectors won't be taking that into consideration. They might take a quick glance at the picture before eventually brutally ripping open the package.

Yeah, that's a little disappointing, but as long as we get him eventually (and hopefully a better one with the changes), I'm ok with it.  I suppose he'll be in one of the 2011 waves, since I believe they are switching to "mixed" waves at that point.
