Love, love this group - but two gripes- where is the pilot trench coat?  Otherwise, why do two at all?  Instead of two, I'd like to have seen something else, Padme Handmaiden, for example.

Who ever imagined Ric Olie could become an actually cool action figure?

Per Gh update - these are not going to be on Vintage cards.  Strange to classify them in the Vintage Collection only to card them on the TPM 3D design.

That's rather odd...

They're putting out the other TPM figures out on Vintage card backs, so why not these?

Here's hoping the folks at GH got some bad info.

During the presentation they said "fancy packaging" or something to that effect... that is why they are on the backdrops instead of the plain white like the other figures...  I wish I could recall more but all I wrote in my notes was "fancy".  The Maul cards make sense I guess...

Personally, I am fine with this. I have only been collecting extra OT guys to keep carded. This should also put a slight damper on scalpers. I will definitely pick up a 6-8 each of the Naboo pilots and the Gungans. That package looks good, better that the current blue stuff, this feels more SWs.

Adam P. at Galactic Hunter has confirmed (on twitter) that this exclusive wave will be packaged on the new Maul card back, not the Vintage.

I want all but Mawhonic.  I see no point in getting more Pod Race figures if we don't have pods for them to race in.

I really like this wave.  The character choices are pretty cool.  Very much liking the Naboo Pilot.  I'd also like to see more of Aurra Sing.

The downside?  I just dread having to deal with the ratrace of another WalMart exclusive wave of figures.  I *HATE* WalMart exclusives with such a passion.

I just treat pod racers as background aliens. At least the decent looking ones. Mawhonic looks good for that capacity.

I'm similar.  They've kind of got their own shelf.  I never expected all the pods to happen, and honestly I'm kind of glad they didn't and other things were done instead.

My podracers just chill out together and have the Pit Droids hanging around with them, the announcer, the Mos Espa weirdoes, etc.
