20 new figures announced and no new Han figure among them.  :(

Glad to see R5-X2 on the list though, that's a nice one to get ticked off the list.

Watch Biggs gets a brand new X-Wing pilot sculpt, while poor Wedge gets old sculpts. Glad R5-X2 is finally being made.  Curious about Luke and Bespin Vader.

I was shocked Mace even got the realistic TCW treatment. Other than the clone armor guantlets and maybe a longer robe, there really isn't too big of a difference. I really wish Hasbro would start on realistic TCW villains instead - give me realistic Asajj, Cyborg Maul and Savage Opress instead, please Hasbro? :-*

I'd be shocked if Biggs got a new sculpt only because he actually is about Hammil's height...  He should be on the shorter side.  It's Red Leader who should've been a head taller than those two.  :-\

Speaking of Wedge, the new Wedge figure is really short...was the actor such a little guy?

From the original Wedge discussion in the Vintage Wave 3.5 thread...

Denis Lawson = Height: 5'8" (1.73 m)

Mark Hamill = Height: 5'9" (1.75 m)

Yep, short guy.

I think they need to retire that Luke body.  It might be proper height, but compared to the more recent X-Wing pilot bodies, it doesn't hold up in my opinion.

Seems like out of the first couple waves, I only want 2 of the B-A-Ds.  :-\

I've heard that Hamill is shorter than that.

Temuera Morrisson is only 5' 7.25"...a little short to be a lot of stormtroopers.

Based on this Mara Jade Skywalker listing, it seems like Hasbro didn't have her in the pipeline during the last Fan's Choice Figure Poll.  You've got to figure that this wave probably won't be seen until at least March or April of '13.

Darth Vader Bespin?  Hasn't that one been in the works for about 10 years or more?  I'm interested to see how Hasbro is going to present that version of Vader.  The prototype of Bespin Vader that came out year ago showed a blast spark in Vader's hand.  Will this new version do something similar?

Yavin Ceremony Luke?  This seems like a case of trying to fix the 30AC figure.  That headsculpt was just pasty and pale, but the rest of the figure was okay.  Hopefully this new version will address the areas where the 30AC figure fell short.

The A-Wing pilot is kind of interesting.  Part of me wants the Sullustan pilot from the ROTJ deleted scene.  But another part of me wants a human A-Wing pilot on a Vintage card.  Seeing how the Vintage Collection is going on hold for a while, I'd like Hasbro to hold off on the human A-Wing pilot and save that for when the Vintage Collection comes back.  By that train of thought I think it's more likely that we might get that deleted scene Sullustan A-Wing pilot.

Most of all?  I'm hoping that Hasbro might at least have some images or prototypes of this wave to show off at C6.

Hopefully AOTC doesn't become another TPM. The Vader sounded very cool with all the accessories he comes with and as always I look forward to the OT characters, but sadly, there's no a lot new here from the OT.

I wouldn't mind the sullustan A-Winger, the first two waves are severely lacking in the aliens department.

Cool, thanks. He is definitely a diminutive hero.

This wave really confuses me. Who was clamoring for a new Yavin Ceremony Luke? Yes, the 30AC one had a terrible headsculpt but that was easily fixed with the awesome Luke from that Falcon Training battlepack. Bespin Vader? Yawn. At least these last few Vaders have been something different, which is enough to get me to break my "Buy No More Vaders" stance.

I'm interested really in just the A-Wing Pilot. I kinda want one of those old women from the Blu-Ray deleted scenes, specifically that one that talks slow like she's on the phone with her grandkids.
