A... good... rebel... fleet.... trooper?!?!? *gasp* Such a thing cannot truly exist!  :P

I'm looking forward to all of the figures, and will DEFINITELY be army building the Rebel Trooper. The Rebel doesn't look too much like the Scrambos, which is exactly what I was hoping for. Bom looks badass, especially with that cool looking rifle. Also, is Barriss from the cartoon series? I know the picture is from the cartoon, but the figure doesn't look animated.

Bom looks good, see he has the obligatory holster.

Weequay I'll hold judgement on until final product.

Rebel Trooper, I fear, as others do, he'll be too tall. *crosses fingers*

Barriss Offee looks okay. This is her first action figure. Yes, something was released years ago, but I'm pretty sure it was a 3 3/4" statue.

Evazan might turn out well...heck, couldn't be worse than the old version.

Bastilla Shan...no idea who that is...reserve judgement on...even though no EU character should be made before Mosep. Or Solomahal for that matter. It's okay if they release Ms. Shan before Reegesk and Tzizvvt, but one them should be in the wave immediately after her.

VIVA MIXED WAVES, btw. No a Solo or Kenobi or Skywalker in sight. (I'm daydreaming, they'll appear! EN MASSE.)

Is it me, or does that Weequay Skiff Master look overly bulky? Is that supposed to be a part of his design?

Although it's too early to tell so far, Bastilla looks great so far. There's a lot of movement sculpted into the robes, which is a good sign that Hasbro's at least trying to deliver a good sculpt for a Fan's Choice figure.

Rebel fleet trooper... awesome! That's all I can say...

Would have liked Aayla Secura in place of Bariss, but it's also a good sculpt. Her cape looks a tad bulky, probably because of the material, but it's alright, I guess. To answer someone's question above, no, it's not based on her animated appearance, but on her Ep.II appearance.

I'm kind of tied up this weekend, but once I see that the helmet's removable, the holster functions and holds the blaster nicely, that the holster actually connects to the belt, that he isn't goony tall, and that the finer details are all nice and done well, then sure I'll say he's good enough.

As of right now though, I like the articulation, the colors look good, the sculpt looks nice and crisp/up-to-date.

The rest remains to be seen (for sure).  After 11 years, i'm hardly going to jump for joy at simply a photo.  ;D

Right now, if I have a complaint, it's that the vest is now molded-on and non-removable.  Hasbro's gotten away from removable vests and it sucks a bit.  I could be wrong again, photo's tough to say, but I'm guessing it's all one piece.

Sure is confusing based on their picture choice...WTF?

I don't recall that outfit but I probably blinked and missed it.

WOW!  Now that's what I want to see!  NEW OT figures.  See?  It's not hard to put a smile on my face.

These look really nice.  Weequay is a bit bulky, but after the mazing Wooof, I trust this will look slightly better in person.  I think that the rebel's vest is sculpted on so that his collar can go over the vest, which makes sense to me.

Ezavan looks prefect.  The gut, the crooked belt, the shirt hanging below the belt.  Perfect.  Thes are going to be amazing on the cards!

I see in the article that Tarkin, Dash Rendar and Guri are on their wishlist to do next from the poll.

Rebel Fleet Trooper looks like it could finally defeat that deal done by Hasbro with Satan.

The others mean nothing to me but look well sculpted.

After an unexciting wave 4 and a blah wave 5, I'm excited again. Can't wait for better pictures of the RFT, but it looks very promising.

Bastilla Shan is one of the main characters from the Knights of the Old Republic game.  I'm really looking forward to that figure!

The RFT looks like it has swivel elbows a opposed to ball and socket.  To me that is unacceptable, I hope the picture isn't showing the elbows correctly.

I think it is just the angle of the photo. I can't imagine that in this day and age that they'd produce a new figure with those angle cut elbows.

The magazine sort of twists right where his elbow is, which will skew the image.
