Other figure pics

Wave 6

Luke Skywalker
Clone Trooper
AT-RT Driver
General Lando
Weequay Skiff Master

Awesome. I'll get Lando again, plus a few of the Jedi, and a few of the Weequay.

Not a bad lineup, at least from what we can see.  I'm pretty psyched for General Lando and definitely the Weequay, and the rest of the lineup looks good too.  I like Fi-Ek Sirch and am fairly excited about the Luke figure too, unless the arms are too wonky.  The clones may be improvements as well, although I just have a tough time getting too psyched for clonetrooper any more.  They all look nice though.

These look great!!

And I really like the mixed wave.  It's much more interesting to me.  And, honestly, if that was an all AOTC line, I might skip the clones.  But mixed up like that, I want them. Don't know why.

I assume the AT-RT pilot is very articulated, because we never got one that was SA.  Am I correct?

Thank goodness we have more Clones coming our way!   ::)  Outside of those two, the wave looks terrific!

The 2005 carded one was SA, other than having just a swivel waist instead of a ball joint.

However, it was very difficult to get that figure to move its hips into a sitting position, meaning as a driver it sucked. It was possible to get them to sit, but the figure's hips would be loose/ruined...at least in my experience. 

Also, the 2005 figure's right hand was nearly worthless; it was made very wide, possibly to hold  a big spring action weapon. But the result was too wide to hold much of anything.

So it's a deserved upgrade, if coming years too late.

I am really digging this wave, even the clones! I am so happy to get a new Lando & Nikto!
Hasbro can we just skip wave 5 and go straight to this wave?

Really like what I am seeing here too.  Probably pass on the plain clone - maybe the Luke - but the rest look really good.  The AT-RT Driver's helmet looks big - but in a good way.  Same for the plain clone I guess.

It's an interesting wave.  There are a couple of completely new figures in there including a new take on a core character, some army builders and a couple of much needed updates.  I'm on the fence about the AOTC Clone, but the AT-RT Driver is welcome in my book.  The Weequay is the star of the wave (for me at least).  But I'm almost as excited to get Fi-Ek Sirch as an SA Jedi at long last.  The AOTC era figure was so preposed it was almost useless, so this figure will be like a breath of fresh air.

I will only buy the Ot characters from this wave. Hope in the near future Hasbro give us a new classic stormie, using the new sculpt they asigned to those PT clones.

I have the proverbial "toy erection".

That Landy's a dandy.  And I'm glad the Nikto Jedi's getting an upgrade.  Hell, I'll even get the AOTC Clone because I think it looks sharp and I like the articulation upgrade enough to buy one or two I think.  The AT-RT Driver is another one I'll pick up one or two of.  I'm happy with the ROTS figure army I have though.

Great looking figures.  Also notice how much better the Skiff Master's sleeves/shoulders look from the original prototype images.  Not shabby.

Well General Lando and Skiffmaster Weequay are the two I want the most. 

The AT-RT Driver turned out really nice.  I will probably get him.   

I like how Fi turned out.  My son loves the Arena Battle.  I may buy it for him to open if he wants it. 

Eh, another generic clonetrooper, but I will probably buy it and the inevitable yellow, red, blue, and green versions.

I'll probably pass on color variations...  Well, maybe "probably" is a little early to claim, but I might...  The color designations for rank went out the war's window almost immediately so I now look at them as really only important to pretty much Geonosis and maybe the first few months.

THey seemed to jump (ala Clone Wars) almost immediately to unique armor deco designations for entire legions, right away.

But I'll definitely get the plain ones.  They seemed to hang on for quite some time.

I guess I can tolerate prequel figs on vinty cards, but that Kenner stamp has to go and doesn't really make much sense on PT figs...
