The wave I most want is the online exclusive, figures. Next to that, the Nom/Aayla wave because I missed both of those figures at least twice. A close third would be the Starkiller wave.

No interest in any of these Lost Wave guys really...

The Sandtrooper is the one trooper I bet WON'T be as easy to find...  I think that rifle might sell him, as will the droid.  I think folks are underestimating what Star Wars fans will buy, and why.

I've been talking so much trash about Sandtroopers this year, after seeing them littering the pegs, and then I went ahead and ordered three of the new one online. I'm such a whore.

I'd actually like to see Hasbro release this guy with the black pauldron (and hell, maybe even the white pauldron) for a while. My sandtrooper legion is so ****** up, I'd like to actually curate it a bit. If this is the ultimate version, I'd like to build my forces on that mold, with the proper pauldron colors. After all, I know I won't be buying many AOTC rererererererereleases.

Now that I think of it, I should just a buy a bunch of this guy and take the pauldrons from the ones I already have. Are they swappable?

I wasn't planning on buying him, but when I saw him on the pegs, on avinatge card, I had to.  And I was really surprised how much I like this figure.  Good one, Hasbro.

absolutely...  They're really more an accessory than anything IMO, and swap perfectly.

Excellent...I can't wait to have a few badass-looking squads. I'm really sick of the POTJ ones, so it'll be nice to phase those out.

You know which Sandtrooper I really dislike?  The Evolutions version.  I even prefer the POTJ version over that one.

I'm not a fan of the Evolutions Sandtrooper either, but the orange pauldron one (the one that looks like it stood in front of a crap-spray) is a bit better than the grey pauldron version (the one that looks like it swam in a septic tank).

The problem I have with the POTJ version is that it can't hold it's gun. That, and it's articulation is just terrible. I'm really hoping to swap out all my sandtroopers with a good sculpt and paint-apps, and this seems like the one to do it with.

Don't forget - there is a black pauldron version of this Sandtrooper coming in the Droid Factory line next spring...

Ah, that may help things, thanks! I knew there was some kind of sandtrooper coming, but I thought it was a Movie Heroes version, with some sort of weird gun and possible action feature. Glad to know this guy is coming as well.

Yes, there is also a white-pauldron Sandtrooper with light-up leaf blower gun coming in 2013 Movie Heroes as well... but I don't really recommend that one as any sort of "ultimate" version for troop-replacing. :P
