Kinda wish the Death Star Trooper had a regular hat too... plus his face... looks a bit too shiny/bright.  I wish they'd start adding more depth to the face sculpts by adding in some paint applications more often.  It really can bring figures to life when they do that.

My EE order for this wave is now processing.  :)   Still listed as In Stock right now, but that probably won't last long...

I saw that they have Wave 3 in stock now. I just can't justify spending $130 for five figures I need, two I'd be willing to except (the Battledroid and Naboo Guard) and five more I have absolutely NO NEED for. F**K YOU HASBRO.

Yeah I want to order a case but I'm so wishy washy on this wave and that assortment, I just can't pull the trigger (yet).

If you want to order though, Ordering Now Would Be A Good Idea!

Me too. If the new figures were 2 per case, it'd be a no-brainer.

Not a completely terrible assortment.  I could find uses for the extra 4 figures in that case.

Bought the DSC and Luke on eBay. Had some PayPal $ from a sale of some some non Toy related goodies. 

So I passed on cases...cuz 7 PT pieces of landfill fodder were not worth it.

Sorry I am making a late coment on this thread

I am not sure, perhaps someone could tell me....

The guy in the original vintage dsc photo is Colin Skeaping (Mark Hamillīs stunt)?

Seeing some pics the face of this Imperial navy trooper looks like Colin, blond hair,
a serious rictus.

Decent action figure, also like his new kind of holster.

Found some of these at a Minnesota Target this morning. Picked up my Hoth Luke, but didn't see the Navy commander.

$14+ shipping from UK on eBay...not too bad

That's the most I've ever spent on a current figure... ::)

Stupid retail. Thanks for the heads up Scott.

Does anyone know if there are plans to bring back the Imperial Navy Commander at any point?  I seem to have missed him and need to decide if I should over pay for one now or wait it out.

As of now none, but that can change as soon as his case gets dumped en masse at an outlet.
