We just received a couple loose shots of Ric Olie & Naboo Pilot from this wave...


Clicky to check 'em out!

Both look outstanding...  To be honest, I never realized Ric Olie's 1999 figure looked this bad.  :-X

Cool thing to me is the helmet goggle variations...  Nice touch for sure. :)  I'll be army building the generic pilot for sure.

The generic pilot really needs a trenchcoat, otherwise its just the Ric figure with a new head - I hope Hasbro isnt that lazy, heck, kids wont even be able to tell them apart - and some collectors too no doubt.

The should have given the generic pilot a goatee to help further separate him from Ric "Widow's Peak" Olie.  :P

Does John Knoll really need a figure?

These shots look pretty good.  It's a tremendous move forward from the original Ric Olie sculpt.

A trenchcoat is a must for one of those guys.

I'd say for both, just because it'll probably be cloth and they'd both used them at one point or another in the film.

I was honestly floored by the difference in 1999's figure, and 2012's figures.  The sculpt, the deco, the likeness of Olie...  Really, that's fine work.  I like the helmet variation too, for a little extra umph.  But really, the helmet sculpt and detail is also much improved.  Those are buckets with some intricacy.

I'm a big fan of these kinds of updates...  Can't wait to see a little more in the near future.  I think 2012 and TPM3D is going to be a massive push for Hasbro and Star Wars at retail.

They didn't show any trenchcoats on them at SDCC, so I'm not holding my breath for one on either of them at this point...

Maybe you could you fake one up using an Endor Han coat and some dye?

A Han coat would certainly work...  Actually if anyone's able to sew, it'd be relatively simple to do, if not a little tedious.  Sounds like a project.

Vintage (original Vinty) Han's coat may even be better because of the fairly large collar it has.

Those are nice figures, but I am with some other here.  I hope they make at least one with a trench coat someday.

If you're interested in picking up either the Naboo Pilot or Ric Olie, they're both in stock at Hobbystock.cn as of right now!

I'm already stoked to get a handful of the Naboo Pilot, and probably a couple of Ric Olie too, especially if his head swaps with other figures easily.  He'll become a Rebel of some sort probably. :P

The Gungan Scout has shown up on eBay via Tunghori. Very sweet.
