I take back what I said...just doing some scaling, they are almost spot on to the actual heights of Fisher and Ford.  I think we're just used to having really tall Princess Leia figures :-[

What about the scaling on those hips though?

According the internet she is 5'1" and he is 6'1"...she is wearing sandles and he is wearing boots.  Just asthetically and after the R2 debacle of Wave 1 it doesn't look good but according to my math it is accurate

Not feeling Leia at all, I'll wait for a white gown version.

There's something about joints in flesh of female figures that just does not work.  Leia does look bad.

Han, Greedo and Fett are all win.

What a set though...  wow was she attractive in her prime.  :-\

I like how the two look, then her...  Seems about right from all the stories told.

I received a set of these from BBTS, but haven't had a chance to open them yet.  They all look pretty nice overall though, with Leia probably being the weakest of the bunch.  The Han looks great, and with all the accessories/extra hands seems the most worthy of the higher pricepoint.  I really like these and can't wait to get them open, but still feel that $15-17 would be a better price.  I am enjoying the OT-heaviness of these so far though, something we hadn't really seen for awhile in the basic lineup.

Online, but for retail cost and since I don't expect to see any wave 2, either 6" or 3 3/4" any time soon I pounced.

If Wave 2 doesn't start showing up in stores by Black Friday I am going to be seriously discouraged.

Hey, I just snagged all of wave 2 at Target!

I saw another full case at a different location and alerted my friend who is looking to pick up Boba and Han.

They look terrific, except for leia, who seems as bad in person as I feared. Will post more later when I get home and have time to rip these open.

Stay on Target!   :D

I was just able to find a replacement Leia at a local Target today who has really well-done eyes, what a relief. It looks like if they go just a hair off center then it comes out atrocious. I am happy to have found a pair spot-on. Still not my favorite figure but I look forward to busting her out tonight. (I rephrased that like 5 times and none of them sounded good)

Still on the hunt for a replacement Greedo though, as I have noticed a small splotch on the left eye of the one I got. The other I saw Friday was even worse.

The only 2 I saw at my stop today were Leia and Han. 2/3 other Targets I checked had no sign of the wave, but at 1 per case I could have easily just missed them outright.
