I'm pleasantly surprised by how well-done that Jar-Jar is... but considering who he is, why didn't Hasbro opt to give him a more silly look? They probably figured that if they did that then Jar-Jar haters would buy it just to set it on fire.

Emperor's Wrath Vader really threw me off... sort of a weird choice. It'll be interesting to see what the card looks like. No ball-joint hips on this one, which is disappointing. I wonder why they sculpted his right hand a fist instead of sculpting a mechanical stump, which would be screen accurate. Maybe the hand is removeable.

Looks like it to me. The wrist looks thicker than it should be.

They remake electrocuted Vader but aren't gonna use a photo from that scene?

No special ed shot of the Sandtrooper with  flying droid, but they did find an orange pauldron photo.

If you look at the UGH (Lost Wave) variant covers that will be released (the same ones that will be at SDCC), it will be electo-Vader. There's a pic on the front page... or click on the link of the photo I took at Toy Fair: http://www.jedidefender.com/gallery/imageFolio.cgi?action=view&link=Conventions/Toy_Fair_2012/Hasbro_Star_Wars&image=PICT0251.JPG&img=&tt=

Same thing with the Sandtrooper: http://www.jedidefender.com/gallery/imageFolio.cgi?action=view&link=Conventions/Toy_Fair_2012/Hasbro_Star_Wars&image=PICT0252.JPG&img=&tt=

That's just makes me think they plan on doing a vintage  Vader cardback change later, which wouldn't surprise...anyone.  Hey, buy the same figure 3 times MOC collectors!

The more I look at this wave, the more I don't give a ****.

Anyone wanting the rest of it wanna hook me up with a Sandtrooper?  It's the only figure I'd be dying to have.  I would like Leia too, but then again she does nothing in that outfit...  This wave is definitely nothing I'd go out of my way to buy, like via a case...

I could live with MH Jar Jar if I picked him up.  I could live with the last Bespin Leia or a custom I figure out at some point...

The Sandtrooper is about all I care about.

The new recon droid and the new E11 sculpt are enough to get me to pick up a couple more Sandtroopers...

Just curious....are either of the clones, or the Sandtrooper new sculpts?  It's getting hard for me to keep track of these things.

To my eyes, they don't look new, but new decoes and all that.  A helmet might be changed on the Clone perhaps, but I don't see anything to indicate that one way or the other yet.

I would not say any of these figures are 'Must" buys for me, but I still like how they all turned out.  Vader looks much better than I thought he would.  I actually want the clonetroopers.  Leia looks like a nice update from previous versions.  Jar-Jar actually looks decent.  I'm a sucker for Sandtroopers especially orange pauldron versions.  Is Prune Face in this wave?

No, he's in, I think, the next wave...

This is Jar Jar, Bespin Leia, AOTC Clone Lt., Sandtrooper, Lightning Vader, and...  someone I'm forgetting, but I think it's the Red ROTS Clone Shocktrooper.

Site sponsor Nerd Rage Toys has these up for pre-order, and the prices are fantastic...


Clicky to check it out!

The prices are right if you're looking for extras I think, and the sets are cheap too.  Good deal here!
