Popped open the Luke, Land and Weequey. Weequey is definitely better in person and is my favorite of the wave so far. Luke came out well and Lando is half and half for me. There's so much done right about him, yet, he just doesn't look right aesthetically. I think I like the previous version better.

Sorry if I'm a little out of the loop, but has this wave actually been found at retail?  Or is it just the e-tailers that have it so far?

It's at retail now, though I've only seen the clone and Lando myself.

while i'm still on the fence on the new AOTC clone now that I have one I did find it interesting that Cody and AOTC clone head are pretty good fits when swapped
not perfect but if that any indication for those that don't have new clone yet take that into consideration.

I think I might agree with you on Lando.  The old one didn't have nearly this much articulation, but probably "looks" better.

I'd agree on aesthetics on Lando.  I said from day one I opened my case that the headsculpt is wrong...  The sculpt overall is fine or even better.  There's some crisper detailing, and the physique is just right, but for me the likeness isn't quite right and was a disappointment.  Still, I'd take the articulated figure over the non-articulated figure ultimately. 

The only major flaw to me then was the band on the cape...  i'll replace that at some point I think.

Looks like Hasbro tweaked the neck mold for the Skiff Master so the head sits closer to the shoulders.

May rebuy him if I see that, and move mine to the fodder bin...  Though now the elongated neck will be some kind of rare variant perhaps?  :) 

That's an uncommon sight though...  A mold change takes a bit.  That's a cost usually, and I'm frankly surprised they bothered.  I was ok with it as-is.

Do you think it costs the same to slap a holster on the RFT?

I would guess so, if they tooled it directly to the leg...  Or they could tool up a whole new belt/holster that fits over the existing belt like a Han Solo belt, or so many other characters have.  I don't expect them too though.  I really am still left clueless why they ditched the holster on the RFT.

Friggin' finally!

Got all six today at TRU at 10.99 a pop!  It was the first time I've seen more than one new figure on the pegs since Dec.  Now I'm hoping that wave 4 shows up sometime.

Not sure if you live by a Meijer - but I went to one yesterday that looked like it just recently put out about 3 cases worth of wave 4.  It looked like everything was there except Zam - but I may have overlooked her.

Any idea if Hasbrotoyshop is selling the funky helmet Stormie or the newly updated Stormie? They have it for sale, I'm just wondering which one it is. Anyone ordered this from them?

I'd say it's a crap shoot as to what you'd get.
