Figure erection complete.

But honestly there's some good looking stuff there...

I'm pretty impressed with what I've seen, that's new.  I know it's limited, but it looks good at least.  Dooku's droid is a nice choice, Pablo Jill's twin is nice...  There's good stuff in there.

That's the B.A.D. news that some fans were expecting.  ;)

At long last, rumors are looking confirmed.  Looks like the "mixed" waves are continuing in 2013. 

Hopefully that is the same "NEW" Biker Scout that is coming with the new Bike.  R2-with boosters is a nice upgrade, Arena Padme looks gook so far too (at least from the small pic - we'll see what upgrades they made to her).  Looking forward to seeing who else is planned for this wave! :)

Looks like it's 12 figures in that first wave:

- Arena Padme
- Rockets R2
- Ep2 Anakin
- Ep2 Clone SGT
- Geonosian Warrior
- Luminara
- Biker Scout
- TIE Pilot (Vader's Wingman)
- RED Battle Droid
- Sandtrooper (Black Pauldron)
- Pablo Jill
- 212th Clone (on VC45 body)

BADs = TC-70 & FA-4

TC-70 = Jabba's CW Protocol Droid:



They made one in the CW line with the CW Jabba BP.

Pleased to have Droid Factory back - but not at the expense of the Vintage line....

Glad we're getting a 12 figure wave right out of the gate that's all (mostly) new.

I know people disliked the previous 212th Clone Trooper...but its toooo soon to even update him with the new mold.

The line-up for the first two waves leaves me underwhelmed. With vintage, out goeth the obscure...oh, well.

Yeah, I think the figures all look well done - and I'll likely pick up most of them, but the first wave is a bit underwhelming simply because we've seen every single one of those characters before haven't we?  And most of them had pretty decent figures already.  Again, they look good and I'll get them most likely (particularly for the BADs), but not super exciting.  I guess we are getting to the point in the line where we've seen almost everything, but a lot of these (Sandtrooper, Battle Droid, etc.) we literally see every year.

I'm pretty stoked on the initial wave...  It's outstanding and TC-70?  Obscure realistic CW gives me hope that 2nd tier guys will get new figures too, done realistically.

I was pretty stoked at the BAD stuff though.  All of it looked good.

any details on this new R2?  Ugh I don't want to buy it but probably will be forced to at the expense of the BAD...  Same with the Battle Droid...
