There's only 2 I want in this wave and I'd say Nikto is the winner. The facial sculpt is just off somewhere on Tarkin... and the color of his tunic.

I'm hoping the actual production figure is better, but I hear you...I'm only interested in two of these figures.

Yeah... this might be the oddest wave of the bunch.

A Clone Pilot redo that could have waited until ROTD:3D, an oddly colored Tarkin upgrade, yet another Starkiller figure, a gal from an on-line game, and one of the most requested Kenner re-dos?

What a strange mix.  Nikto looks great though!

I'm giving Tarkin the benefit of the doubt for now, but if they completely f up his redo I'll be pissed off. 

I'm very, very hopeful the color is altered and his headsculpt looks better with a different deco.  That one looks oddly young on him.

I really like Tarkin except for the lame soft goods skirt.  Nikto looks fantastic!  The others I just do not want them at all.

Yeah someone at Hasbro really ought've piped up and said that looked awful.  There is so much other goodness coming out this year I can live with it.  I'll just pass on the figure if it looks bad.

VC97 Clone Pilot OddBall - seriously?  What is it with the clones still?

VC98 Grand Moff Tarkin - the cloth bit has to go, but I like him.

VC99 Vintage Nikto - very cool.

VC100 Starkiller - cool but I don't play the games.

VC101 Shae Vizsla - ditto.

Does the softgoods skirt give anyone else hope that the table and chairs may be on the way?  Otherwise why the skirt on Tarkin ya know?  You didn't even do softgoods on the Death Star Trooper, yet, you do on Tarkin...  Odd, no?

It's very odd and I thought of the chair also.  But that would mean we'd be buying another Tarkin, in a battle pack or something.  Doesn't really make sense.

I'm with you guys on the soft goods for Tarkin. I'm sure he has ball jointed hips, but he really doesn't need them. The Nikto sure is a pleasant and welcome surprise.

Pretty pumped that the rumored Tarkin is on the way, I'm hoping the color is fixed as well.  It seems to vary somewhat depending on which site's pictures you look at, so maybe it isn't quite as green as it seems.  The Nikto is of course awesome too.  I'm a little puzzled at the continued clonetastic waves coming this year, with Attack of the Clones 3D just around the corner.  You would think they could save these up for that.  The other video game figures look nicely done, but I don't really care about them too much otherwise.

If anyone gets a chair, I hope it's Palpatine.

Yeah, but the only one who looks good in that is the preposed statue from that cinema scene. Ever other Emperor figure looks smashed in there.

And I know there's an ornament that can be used, but I'd love a proper one.
