Wow, these look so much more impressive than what we saw in the presentation yesterday.  I'm happy about all five of these, but actually like Lando the least.  Something about matching a plastic cape with a cloth cape on the same figure doesn't jive for me.

Based on what we saw this week, is this the only OT wave we will see next year?  And to purists it is really an EU wave.

This news and the fact they showed ZERO new GI Joe means, my toy collecting may finally have come to an end.

Lando is a welcome update and General Cracken will definately find himself bought several times so he can join the ground forces on Endor.

Should we start the debate about what color the "Vest" for Luke Jedi is/should be/was on the Vintage/SOTE toys we had?  I'm going with purple.

I think it is that the vest is a very, very dark grey that looks black.  The cloak always looked brown to me but it was probably the lighting.

So just exactly what is General Cracken lugging around there?

His cut scenes are from the Falcon Gunner Turret, but that gun is odd at best.

A show flub, nothing that will come with the figure at all, or is it something that may plug into a future "mini-rig" for the Deluxe Fig w/Vehicle line or something?   ;)  It sort of looks like it was made to go with a vehicle or something, not a figure.

BTW it looks like the little gold/red screened accessory Lando has, is actually hinged.  :o  Talk about tiny details.

The Luke we have is sufficient IMO, but Han could sure use some spiffing up.  I'll live if they never do it, but I'd love to see a new Sandstorm Han (and to see all han figures with the barrel chest, ultimately, replaced).

I do not think that's the case is a sign of the times both in terms of the state of the line and the economy. Retailers and Manufacturers are cutting back and being more reserved. I talk to my CEO (We are a 4 Billion company WW) all the time and he clearly states that with everything going, inflation, the uncertainty and what's on the horizon everyone (consumers, retail and manufacturers) feel/are paralyzed confidence wise. While I was a bit disappointed at the SDCC Slide show and the delayed waves the more I think about it it's not surprising they are being more cautious. The state of Joe was already struggling but I am surprised nothing new was shown.

Remember Dr. Evezan and supposedly Tarkin, and the "strongly" rumored Luke Hoth are coming in 12 so there should some OT stuff. I can see it being a heavier PT year.

It's the 2009 version but has a new head sculpt according to AP.

These look ******* amazing...I can't wait to add them all to my collection. My one gripe is Luke's robes. They should be sleeveless, as it was really one a cape with a hood that he was wearing. I guess that would technically be a cloak?

I like that they are specifically making General Cracken.  Although it seems to me that they tried to make him as an un-named Endor Rebel back in 2006 in the TSC line:



I wonder which one will actually have the better likeness?  And I'm also hoping that the card for General Cracken will be this photo:

Not so fast, they need to make the Final Duel again with the flap down with the new mold. The 2010 version was a FAIL.  They also need to do Sailbarge Deck Battle with blasted hand. >:D

Almost finished, almost...

(I like the new headsculpt too!)

And he needs the correct style cloak, i.e. no sleeves.

Sideshow got it right... Jedi Luke
