I don't really like the AOTC logo, either. But the cards and images are very pretty. ;D

Zam's helmet is HUGE. Her head is so small in comparison, I wish that Hasbro had just merged both into a single-sculpted piece. I like her cardback the most, the promotional still chosen is very cool. I thought Hasbro would use that common press image of her twirling/shooting.

I can say that I'm 100% happy with this wave. And finally, a cape to go with Obi (even though we should have thousands of extras by now)!

I'm really pleased that they finally seem to have the ankles joints matching the boots in this wave. When they get it wrong it really bugs me for some reason. . A definite upgrade for Obi Wan in this department.

I'm not going to cry victory on that one yet...  These are Hasbro's retailer images, and they're almost always prototypes yet, so there's a chance those ankles won't be fixed when the actual production images of the figures surface I'm afraid.   :-\

Damn it, you're probably right.... at least that means there's a chance they might fix that overly yellow inner robe they've given Obi Wan...

Pictures of the rest of this wave are up at Sandtroopers. I like the robe color on the Mace, it's much more AOTC than the prototype on display at Celebration, which had more of a Sith look. I think this is the best version of the character to date. The sabre looks a bit blue, but I have plenty of substitutes.

Mace and SBD look awesome on the card, Senate Guard is only okay, but the Senate looks like they just make it Red and put a new Royal Guard head on it and instant royal guard.

I have no doubt that he'll ship with the proper purple saber. It's the color of the images that is off than makes it appear more indigo.

I like that Mace's likeness appears much improved, at least as of now.  Hopefully the production figure looks good as well.

seems like Windu has got more attention in this wave, his hilt is incredible detailed, but the legs look a bit skinny.

Good entertainment for prequell collectors, I will pass this wave, because I donīt collect pt, but I hope pt collectors would have a good time picking them up.

I don't like the logo either. But Hasbro continues to impress me with the images chosen for these cardbacks. I just wish they'd get rid of the damn Boba sticker already.

The logo is actually the retro one we've seen before, but it doesn't seem to work here.  I agree with Ben, the images are excellent with this group.
