Wave 2 is kind of neat...  I'm digging them anyway.

Is Hasbro asleep at the wheel or what?

They simply don't care.  No effort, nothing.  But I'm sure collectors, em, er, I mean, kids will be buying these like crazy.

After looking at the press images, I'm a little more excited for this wave now too.  I always planned to pick most of them up, but some of them look a little spiffier with a closer look.  Not too bad, the Luke in particular is an improvement over the last version, if it ends up looking like this.

I agree Yavin Luke uses tac sculpt, but seems the arms are retooled and almost long like in dagobah landing vc 44.
This new head should be used for a new xwing pilot version of Luke, replacing the pointy chin.

Mara is decent, looks young and looks like emperorīs hand version too. She has got more detail on pants and knee pads.

The a wing pilot is likely army builder.

Rex is between cartoon and realistic style.

Bespin Vader is a concept lef in oblivion since 1999.

I'm a lot more excited for this wave now. Hasbro's obviously putting a TON of effort in the realistically-styled TCW figures, those figures from Anakin to Rex now all look amazing in terms of sculpt. Glad there was also a lot of effort with Mara, they did say they were trying to keep the spirit of TVC alive by sculpting her hair as a separate piece.

I am most excited for Rex.  The others?  Meh.  Biggs and clones and EU filler - not much to get excited over.  That's how I see it.  But, I'll probably buy them all.   ::)
