Yes please.  8)

So, it looks like the carded baby Boba is definitely different from the one that is coming in the Slave I UBP at TRU.  Sort of a surprise as most folks were thinking they would be the same sculpt.

Now someone with better eyes than me has to figure out if/how that carded Mando Warrior is any different from the one with the speeder bike or the four in the Mando Warrior BP that is coming out...

HOLY CRAP!

I can see why this Boba is gonna be single-carded compared to the other one - Clone Youth garb Boba wouldn't be a good seller individually. Plus, I don't think that one has any weapons/accessories.

Shaak Ti and Embo look AMAZING!

Mando Warriors seems to be a waste of a slot - 4 in an upcoming BP, plus that Deluxe one coming out soon.

nice looking figures...

Jeff, to my eyes, other than perhaps the red shoulder emblem(?), the Mando's pretty identical to the one from the battlepack.  The one from the speeder's pretty different to those, but this looks like the battlepack one to me in most ways.

I guess astromechs are coming for this line too, like I figured they would. ;)  Too easy not to.

Yeah, plus Mando's are generally popular...  And I think they're going to return in some capacity in the Clone Wars.  At least I'd thinkt hey'd try milking that.

Wow, really a nice wave overall.  Everything looks great, and I'm a bit surprised the Boba is different (and better) here as well.  Definitely looking forward to Embo.

Really nice looking wave. It's great to see more scum and villany in the line up and not just clones. Adds a bit of color to the shelf.

Actually when that rumor came out and then the Slave-I Boba came about as an exclusive figure, I was pretty sure they weren't going to repack him so quickly into the basic line...  The Mandalorian sorta flies in the face of that logic in the same wave, ironically.  It looks like Boba slaps the old man's gear on for some ass whippin' in Season 3?

wowsers those look great. definitely in for boba and Embo - maybe Shaak Ti.  I think I will have enough Mando's from the 4 pack and the deluxe set.

Confirms what I already assumed...this will be the hottest wave of the year IMO. Great sculpts, all!

Beautiful...still wondering which Mando will come carded though. Is it the version from the Deluxe set, the version from the upcoming BP, or something different?

The 'firing rocket' attachment per the photo would suggest the BP Mando and not the Deluxe set Mando.
