I agree, the Gommorean 'pig' guard as me and my friends used to call him looks great as does Ackbar. Jedi Luke looks pretty decent too. Endor trooper is cool too. So much cool stuff and very well done! The two Hoth battle packs are great, gonna be hard with def getting the Bat-at whether I can get either hoth set, though my son will want it ALL! LOL. I def need to get Dengar and the Zuckess, but part of me wants the CV 4-LOM/Zuckess exc package eventhough I still have both my original figs of them and I got 4-LOM last year.

It seems from Hasbro's panel that the photo for Luke will be the vintage Jabba's palace one.  Kind of a bummer as I was looking for something new here.  I suppose they could always fix it later (oh wait, they will).

Wow I was fooled by that picture. I thought it was a movie one until I saw the elbow joints.

THESE are the figures we are looking for!

That Gamorean Guard is outstanding!  Same with the Admiral Ackbar!  Those are must haves...even for someone who doesn't collect much anymore!

Nobody's talking about the R2 because Hasbro already said they reproportioned it...  If anyone else is like me, they're not pleased about that seeing as how Hasbro did a bajillion Astromechs one size, and now with this R2 they're doing one that is going to be very oddly sized by comparison I am afraid.

The Luke...  Eh.  I wasn't that bothered by last years ROTJ Luke.  Some were flipping lids, but to me I liked it.  This is far superior looking in proportions, but maybe it's the fact it's coming out so soon that people are just maybe irked they bought last years?  It's a mostly mish-mash of parts, isn't it?  Not really a lot of new tooling.  At least I thought it looked like a mix of parts and a new head to me.

For me, the top 3 figures were GamGuard, Endor Rebel, and Ackbar...  Not much else compared, even though it was still nice...  The GamGuard is one of their finest figures I think.

It appears the head and torso downward are all-new. I like the look of this one very much more than LC because that one was somewhat too short and disproportioned. This one seems taller. But it would help if Hasbro didn't release him so soon and replaced his slot with somebody else.

Excellent looking wave. Hasbro really outdid themselves.

I don't know, the torso doesn't look much different to me than the Rancor/ENdor pack Luke toso...  Which that figure is actually a hair shorter than the Legacy Collection figure (Luke IS short, and I don't expect them to make this one any taller than the Legacy figure from last year).

In the slideshow image, the head doesn't even look terribly different from last year's figure.  It's a different torso from last year's, but it's tough to tell if it isn't that Endor body re-used.

I think the Luke appears to be all new.  Maybe I'm wrong though, but it looks great to me and is very welcome as I thought the last one was terrible.

As for R2, I'll just pass.  If he's shorter, oh well.  I've got enough of him already that I like...

The Gamorrean obviously is amazing, as is Ackbar.  Can't wait to get several of each, perhaps even a dozen of the Gamorrean. 

The Endor guy is nice, though I don't think it comes close to the aliens... I kind of think the Luke looks better too.

^ no mention of Wicket?   :P

I think Wicket looks really good.  Those pics from the show room floor with the green hood on makes me consider buying a second.

So small he's almost forgotten.

I'm considering a 2nd one as well Smash, just not sure I want to spend the money on two given the size of the figure.  That may be a gametime decision.  :D  I'm going to see if the extra hood fits other figures first as well.

Wicket does look good... I guess after so many Ewoks, he's kinda low on the list.  But, he does look fantastic and I'm sure I'll get a couple.  He's the least interesting one to me out of the wave.

You know, looking at the pictures again - and although he isn't in the official slideshow (and there isn't a lot of talk about him) isn't the AOTC Yoda w/chair included in this wave new (or partially new?).  It at least doesn't look like the previous "Yoda w/chair" that I have from the SAGA line.  It looks like it is at least partially new.

The figure they showed definitely isn't the same one that came with the hover chair in the past.
