Yeah - I know....

The case assortments have been so frustrating - if one of the carry-forward figures in this case has been the Imperial Navy Commander and another had been the 501st, I would have gladly gone the route of just ordering more cases of this wave from EE - but even that has jumped to being a $140+ endeavor - so my choice was to go for 6 figures I DID need for $95 shipped or pick up an additional six I didn't for $50 more.

I keep hoping the "lost look" wave case assortment is a sign of better things to come - a case with that figure break-down  was not on any of the assortment rumor lists, so here's hoping that the back half of that rumor schedule has been completely tanked.

My set is processing as well now, nice surprise this week.  Looking forward to the OT figures, not sure how badly I need the rest though.  We'll see when they get here I guess.  Little disappointed seeing some of the online pics of Tarkin, but still glad we're getting him - particularly on a vintage cardback.

Here we go again. A lot of nothing for a long time, then everything at once. I wouldn't mind, but I have only one store out of 14 (all the WM/ Target's and TRU's) getting anything and it's wave 3. So it's a whole of lot of stuff in the pipeline that retail just isn't getting in one of the biggest metropolitan regions in the country. Go figure.

Some thoughts (only an opinion, never absolute trues):

Tarkin ok want to buy.... only wide stance seems to limit position as the new Nien Nunb from next wave.

Starkiller....game accurate, looks as the paintjob could be better with shades on jumsuit and harness.

Shae Vizla, the only issue is the face, cause the animation showed a woman with a more douce visage,
in the figure, her chin is stronger than in TOR first clip, also her rictus, too serius, angry
they have dimished the freshness in the original caption of that girl.

Nikto... well done, he is an evolution of the sculptīs character.

Even though they will never admit it, these gaps and fills have to be due to Factory time.  It must be cheaper to run all of these together at one shot rather than consistently through the year.  Add to that competing needs internally for Marvel, GI Joe and Transformers...it is a little maddening though.  Especially when things like Wave 12 might not see wide release due to pegwarming city at the stores.

Just an FYI, the Barris figure from this case has a lot of deco changes, see below:



- Notice the blue paint op on the chest is now brown to match the skirt.
- Dark Blue Lightsaber
- Tighter face paint ops

Pete, not sure you know about this or not but this is up your alley.

I'm pretty sure the Barris in the Wave 4 cases was the same. But now that you point this out, I'm going to have to check for sure, I didn't notice the color of her torso matching the cloth skirt better.

I did notice the more blue blade and the crisper face tattoos in the ones I already got.

I still have my two from the Tarkin case, gonna have to compare them to the originals and the ones I got from the Wave 4 cases I got a month ago...

Alright...I'm trying to figure out who the vintage Nikto is. There's obviously pics of the actor in the costume, so I'm sure he was around there somewhere, but I can't see him on either skiff, or the sail barge. I checked skiffguards.com to see if I was missing anything, but I don't see him there.

Was he in the palace?

I believe he was on the escort skiff.  He is listed as Red Nikto Guard at SkiffGuards.com.
