Man, really looking forward to this wave (and seeing some clearer pics when the slideshow is available - and hopefully they'll have them in their booth at some point).  Bespin Han has been my most wanted figure for awhile, and of course the RFT is a big highlight.  Not to mention a new Logray, Bom, Fordo, and Luminara.  Just a strong wave all around, can't wait.  Glad that it is supposed (hopefully) to be coming in May, and we don't have to wait until the Fall - at least if the slides are accurate and the dates hold up.

Bwaahahaha...."Fordo" is the Phase 1 Clone style.

Nope - they said he will come with TWO differnt clone helmets and two differnt style pauldrons so you can pick the one you want to display (or buy two to have both).  They also said he's be called "Clone Trooper Commander" on the card since he's not technically Fordo due to some licensing stuff.  He's also rocking a faux-hawk hairstyle under his helmet...

Other thoughts on this wave.  I LOVE BESPIN HAN.  So so sososososos nice to see a SA kick-ass Bespin Han.  He comes with the welding goggles and a welding tool.  He's great.  Thuis whole wave actually kicks a lot of ass.  Bespin Han and Bom are two of my most wanted and neither let me down.

So glad to hear that the Bespin Han is great.  I was worried after all this waiting we might get some sort of retool mish-mash, but it doesn't sound like it.  Do they have this wave out on the floor, or just in the presentation?

That Han is insane Jeff, congrats.  That's a good action figure.

Everything looks great on Han except the eyes.  But at least this official image seems to make it look like the eyes are going to be okay.

Yeah, the Han on display is a hand-paint master copy, so the eyes are not final deco obviously...

Yeah we've seen really goofy paintjobs on the prototypes at times.  You can tell some of them are rushed to the show.  I'm sure it'll be average prfoduction which Hasbro has improved eye aps since about 2005.

Love Fordo...  I like these EU Clones where they play with the hair some.  I like that we're getting two helmets too...  Reason to buy him twice I guess.

Press pic at starwars.com make Logray look creepy. AND HE'S PHASE ONE STYLE, TOO. That's right, no animated "Ewoks" beard. LOL.

Bespin Han: at last this version corrected the saga tlc  torso, the stance seems better, it would be necessary to see an isolate pic of him stand, to learn if the legs are already corrected from that very thin shape of tlc saga versions.

Rebel Fleet Trooper got all necessary item for display. As with the Echo base trooper, his pants pockets made his legs look more realistic than with a simple knee ball joint.

This wave is a absolute home run.  I LOVE Han, Bom, Fordo and the Fleet Trooper.  Wow.

Is the Han jacket a separate piece or is it sculpted to the torso?
