I picked up this wave this morning on my way into work and instead of going to lunch, I'm opening them up at my desk.
The Anakin and Sidious are the gems in this wave - to me at least.
The cape on Grievous is a nice touch, but frankly, the cape should have been present in the TLC release and why give us eight slots for unlit lightsabers and only two unlit lightsabers - I would have preferred four unlit lightsabers instead of the blaster.
The Magnaguard is an articulation improvement, but the figure seems still too small and a bit too fragile. I was gonna army build this figure, I might only grab another one to open now that I've actually gotten to fiddle with it.
The belt on my Commander Cody figures are fixed - so that's a good thing with this re-release.
The Clonetrooper and Sandtrooper are nice army builders, gonna definitely have to pick up some more of them.
The lame duck of the wave is Obi-Wan - nice figure, umpteenth re-release, nothing really new here, makes sense though - if you're gonna put ROTS Obi-Wan on a Vintage style card, this is the figure to go with - unfortunately, both of the ones I found were smashed, so I still need one of these for the MOC collection.
So overall, it's a nice wave, could it have been a bit better? Sure, but that's the case with every wave in my opinion.
I have to wonder, so now that these are out, are the only other Vintage figures coming out between now and the end of the year the ROTJ wave figures? It seems like calendar-wise there's plenty of time to fit in the ROTJ and AOTC waves.
