I like the Rem. Helmet Clone fine enough, but I agree with CHEWIE on the Stormtrooper...  It's attrocious.  I'm really hopeful for changes to a lot of the figures though, by production time.  That Han's all kinds of wrong.

Yakface has a picture of the new VC13 Anakin Skywalker Darth Vader cardback...  which also shows off the cards for some of the figures in this wave.

Still not liking that Yavin Han, but I like the pic they chose for Luke's card.  It also looks like they might be putting an ESB logo on the Stormtrooper card, which would makes it different from the VOTC Stormtrooper card.

I don't like Han or Gree's card. I wished they chose a better image of Gree. Not that I would buy it, anyways, if they did. The Utapau Clone cardback is pretty dandy, though.

Holy crap.

I'm a little late to this wave 5 party here.  Hasbro did a really bad job on this wave.  Not good considering Wave 4 isn't going to be all that either.

How the hell can Waves 1,2,3 be from the same company that this piece of crap wave 5 came from?  What a difference.

Wave 3 is awesome.  Good thing, cuz it'll be a little while after that one that we see something good again.

Luke - Love the cardback and actually think the figure appears to be decent. 

Utapau Clone - My favorite of the clonetroopers color schemes.  I will nab it primarily for the cardback this time. 

Han Solo - Figure is awful in so many ways.  I will buy one for the cardback because I love just about every OT figure on these types of cards.  I do apologize to the collecting community but it will be done for this purpose only. 

Gree - Terrible choice for the photo in my opinion.  I may buy him because my son poured him in some sort of sticky goo as punishment from the Jedi for trying to kill Yoda.  My son holds quite the grudge against Gree for his Order 66 actions.  Seriously. LOL

R5-D4 - Strickly buying this one for the cardback.  I loved the last version they made of him.

That's hilarious!

Aaw, I saw 2 Anakins today at Target, but I didn't check out the name template thingy! I totally forgot. I was looking through a whole assortment of ROTJ figures that I forgot to check out if Anakin got that name change.

Wave 5 Figs showing up already?

Hmmm...  That means probably not far off for U.S. shores & stores.
 

Clicky to check it out.

Surprisingly, he may be one of the better figures out of wave 5. :)  I'll probably nab two or three.

The clone adtually looks decent! The orange paint seems brighter than on the TSC release. The removable helmet and ball-jointed hips are an upgrade from 2006.

I will probably get a couple to give Cody a few troops.

I'm now kicking myself for never picking up an airborne trooper or two.  I'm sure they will be re-released though.

I hope the paint isn't as day-glo as it's coming across in the photos.  :-\

Yeah, the new Cody already doesn't match the 2006 Utapau Clones. Major screw up if Hasbro didn't make the new Utapau Clone's orange paint match the new Cody's

They have. Just go pick up some new Invasion of Utapau battle packs and throw the other 3 figures away. Or repack something in his place and return the set. Kids don't care.  :P
