I'm might buy extra Ponda for the hands. I'll wind up with some odd hands on some used clone troopers, but right now one of them has a Wolverine hand anyway.

IMO this Walrusman is an obvious improvement over the POTF2 version, but mainly in the articulation department.

The difference between Ponda's POTF2 and Vintage version does not even come close to the improvement between the POTF2 version of the Gamorrean and the vintage version of the Gamorrean.

POTF2 Walrusman actually holds his own fairly well.

Walrus Man = Awesomeness in 4" plastic form.

Echo Base Trooper = Just shy of awesomeness because his hat isn't removable, when all the recent Hoth guys have had that.  I plan to do removable hat versions though.

I'd love to army build the latter, and get at least two Walrus Men, but that'll take some doing these days.

So I got my Wave 9 case - love the three new figures.  :-\

Not quite sure why this case couldn't have had 2x Bastilla, 2x Walrusman, 2x Hoth Rebel and no Jango Fett, Logray and DS Escape Luke.  ::)

Anyway, it occurred to me that since there were only four "Revenge" figures in this case, I guess the Wave 8 and Wave 8 Rev1 cases also will only have four Revenge figures in each. Just like they did with the 12 silver foil figures - they were spread out over three case assortment ratios.

So does this mean that we may very well be getting "Return of the Jedi" carded versions of Slave Leia, Keyan Farlander, Endor Han Solo and the TIE Pilot? All four figures are in both cases. I'm hoping this to be the case 'cause then it will make ordering all three cases worth it, not to mention the fact that while the "Revenge" versions are an interesting novelty, I'd much rather have figures like Slave Leia on a "Return of the Jedi" card since this is the first time Leia in that outfit has ever been put on a Vintage-style cardback.

Gonna open up the RFT that came in the Wave 9 case so I can send away for my first White Boba - kinda concerned about finding the white forms in the wild.

Supposedly a guy found this wave at an HEB (Texas grocery store chain) the other day. I've had slight success there myself over the years (in other lines) but I'm hesitant to go check, especially since I haven't heard of this wave even shipping to the big retail stores yet.

I saw this wave (and remnants) at 2 comic stores in Manhattan. But I left them for $15 a piece. They look sharp though.

I really want a few more Hoth Soldiers and one more or two more Pondas...Ponda still is a little underwhelming while the Hoth Rebel I am higher on than I thought I would be

I want my firsts of all of them, haha.  I keep hoping I'll see them, but then I wonder if maybe I'm going to wind up with my stores that got depleted just filling up with Wave 5 and 6 or something dumb like that.

I walked into an art store today and did a little tap dance after I saw all three of the new figures from this wave freshly stocked on the pegs, including a "Revenge"-card Vader. Being that my local Targets are in a state of who-knows-what, this is probably the only chance I'll get to buy them.

Now the contents of this case would be completely new to me except ackbar. I really haven't picked up any of them yet. However, my experience with buying a case from EE is as soon as I buy it I will see these things warming the pegs all over town before EE decides to ship it to me. I can't pull the trigger.

I picked up all of Wave 9 tonight at K-Mart. :)  Yay me.

And with all the Reward Points I had saved up, I got $17 off the purchase.  I nabbed Vader (mostly for the card), RFT, 3 new figures, Jango, B-Winger...  It was about $54 or so I think after my discount, and I'm already started on my next.
