I'm probably all in with the OT offerings, still on the fence with the prequel stuff.  Now I just need to figure out where I'll put them :).

That's definitely one of the biggest challenges these days.

Right?  Then again, it's the same company that gives us an updated Yavin Ceremony Han, 2 updated Yavin Ceremony Luke figs, and yet, no updated Yavin Ceremony Leia.....

Wow, now Han is how figures SHOULD be done for $20...  3 basically movie-accurate ways to display him.  For the $10 price, a new Han in 3.75" should be exactly like this save for the articulation style and count.

You get Escape the Death Star look, the Millenium Falcon driving gloves look, and the regular old Han is a badass look.  All with ONE figure.  If the Sandtrooper had that kind of versatility, I might've bought him yesterday or today.  For the price, this is simply what they should be delivering to you.

And again, I'd love to see this 6" Han effort put into main characters in the 3.75" line.  It'd get me to rebuy just about every main character and probably in multiples too.

Love the extra hands...  Very sideshow-esque.  Han steals the show at this point, to me.

Leia...  I know guys were excited, but I think at this scale the joints look horrid.  It's too big for that much articulation to not stand out on an almost nude figure.  :-\  I'm sad to say I'm a little disappointed in how she turned out.

Greedo looks sharp too...  Nice companion to Han.  Not perfect IMO, but nice.

I think Boba looks off, but I thought the same first time I saw his original figure as well.

Very nice and agree completely on Han. Standout of the series so far.

Man, can't wait for that Han.  Like others have said, the standout so far, most definitely.  On Jesse's comment, I couldn't agree more.  It would be nice to see them really go all out, like this Han, on the 3 3/4" figures.  Granted, it wouldn't necessarily work for every figures (Senators, etc.), but for the big guns, troops, and bounty hunters, it would be pretty cool.  Sure, charge $10-12 for them then, all tricked out like this, and maybe only put out 20-25 per year.  I'd be down.

When I said that about 3.75", I meant ONLY main characters...  No other figure should get that treatment, but mains (Han, Lando, Luke, Chewie, Leia, OWK, Anakin, Padme, Vader, R2, 3PO) are all I'm talking about...  Secondary guys, not so much unless it's something minor like on a Clone Commander like Fordo getting the works.  I still bought two...  I just like the package deal.

Man, those do look great. Think I made the right call jumping on board this train.

IMO, Boba and Greedo look the strongest out of this wave, but Han is not bad either. I guess the non-human renderings are more compelling to me.

Totally agree with Jesse about the naked Leia joints, those really ruin the figure for me. The Silk Spectre in the 6" Watchmen line had the exact same issue. Just doesn't translate well at that scale.

After checking out all the photos from NYCC, Leia still looks terrible IMO. Less googly eyed but the joints are off the chain atrocious.

rest of the wave still looks great tho!

Is it Hasbro's plan to make one figure in each wave in 5" scale vs the others?
