I am shocked about it as well.  But we all know Vader will either be the SDCC exclusive or in wave 2.  I am hoping for a 3 stage removeable helmet with a Sebastian Shaw Anakin head underneath.  I assume Boba Fett would be in series 2.  Perhaps Chewabacca?  Yeah, I would like a Han Solo (Cantina outfit) version.  I don't know if they will go with 4 OT figures though?

I'm shocked no Vader in Series 1...  not sure how you kick it off without him.  Goes against everything I ever learned about this hobby.

I agree.  And everything that Hasbro talks about featuring "iconic" characters.

So Greedo in Wave 2 must be Hasbro's way of indicating to collectors that it's not going to be all main characters in the 6" line. 

I'm still not really interested in collecting the 6" stuff, but more and more I'm thinking it might be fun to buy a few of the cantina-centric ones (assuming of course they make more cantina centric ones - Hammerhead, Ponda, Snaggletooth, etc).  ::)

Are we sure it's Greedo? It's supposed to be a hint and it says "never before seen figure." The arrows point specifically to the arm.

Well, the references picture collage they have linked is made up of pics of  Greedo's head/mask, hands/gloves, gun belt, blaster, and stills of the actor in the suit.

I'm pretty sure it's Greedo. :P

I'll guess Week 2 (6/25) will be the figure drawing/schematic with the joints mapped out; week 3 (7/2) will be the wax prototype, and week 4 (7/11) will probably be the final painted hard copy; and then we'll see him "in person" at SDCC.

I completely missed the pictures in that link. :-X It may have something to do with that I didn't see the "click here."

I foresee a lot of hanging Anakins and otherwise empty pegs.

Weird that Entertainment Earth was promoting Greedo as part of wave 2 then.  ???
