The BP Mando has a long piece of plastic (meant to be a rocket) that snaps into his backpack and then can fire out,the Deluxe Mando has a backpack which has a molded & fixed "rocket"

BP Mando (note the rocketpack is fixed)





And if you look at the single card Mando he has the long snap in firing rocket back back which sits in length wise to the back of the knees which is not the pack the Deluxe Mando has due to it's problematic nature to sitting on a speeder.

I have not picked up any CW stuff until now.  Between this wave and the Slave 1 BP, I may just have to start.

Thanks 501st.  Cant see the pics at work but I will be sure to look when I get home.  It sounds like the only difference (other than weapons too perhaps?) is that all versions other than the deluxe one come with a firing backpack.

I included the weapons coimment above because I thought I remeber seeing some of the Mandos in the BP coming with different weapons so they weren't all exactly the same.

If the four Mando's I got from ebay (tunghori) are anything to go by,then there's one Mando with the rocket firing backpack and the other three are not. (I selected Option A,B,C and D to see what each one was like)

Weapons wise they have different blasters also.

If that translates to the actual released BP is yet to be seen.

I'm starting to like that Shaak Ti more and more.

Boba and Mando are a meh for me. I could care less for the astromech.

And Embo's going to be in Season 3, too, so he's a must.

Outside of the vehicle I do not either. I have only picked up  IG-86, The Trandosian from the BP, Cad Bane w/Pirate Bike and the deluxe Mando. But this wave is really nice, I will definitely get Fett and Embo without a doubt. I may even get Shaak Ti for custom fodder.

For five new figures, that comes to a shade under $13 each. Plus shipping.

Happy to wait these out at retail...

This wave is also now out in the Phillipines, according to JTA.

Won't be much longer!

While I do not typically collect the animated figures I must say that I am very happy I ordered Embo. after seeing the review on GH I must say he easily passes for realistic. I feel that way about the Deluxe Cad Bane too.

I cannot wait to get this figure in hand!

Does Embo have unarticulated knees? Adam Pawlus says there's only 12 points of articulation on him, and there appears to be articulation in all the standard places except the knees (I can't tell because of the skirt thingy).

The Deluxe Cad Bane is a really great figure - and with all of the re-releases they keep having of Mr. Bane, it would be nice if just ONCE one of them was the same figure from the Pirate Bike deluxe.

I bought a second Pirate Bike deluxe just so I could have a secone one of the Deluxe Cad Bane's to put in my Xanadu Blood when it comes out.

If it turns out that one of the regular Cad Bane figs will work in the Xanadu Blood, then I'll save the Dlx figure for something else.

The Embo figure looks REALLY fantastic - I would say that out of all of the CW figures coming out between now and the end of the year - Embo is the one I'm the most excited about.

This Wave is out now, spotted at a West Coast Target as per JTA this morning.

Curious to see how long these will take to show up back East. We're still waiting on the latest waves of vehicles (Xanadu Blood, etc) and Deluxe sets (AT-RT w/Boil, etc) which have already hit the midwest and central zones.

Glad I have the day off tomorrow, lots of hunting to do now.
