PT does clutter things, a lot.  Noticed the same thing...  Clones alone are a shelf unto themselves.

Well, the Stormtrooper does look exactly like the first VC Sandtrooper we got, minus the pauldron & backpack.  Gotta say there's nothing in Wave 2 that interests me.  Is it just me or does the latest pic of Mara Jade look like Lita Ford with red hair?

She's a little overdressed for Lita Ford...and doesn't rock as much.

Same here.  I display stuff from both trilogies (although the majority of my PT vehicles/beasts are packed away), but like Jesse said, the clones really eat up space quickly - and I don't have anywhere near the armies many people do.  I've thought about trying to narrow the prequel stuff down to one shelf, but don't see how it is possible without packing a ton away.

Anyways, as far as Wave 2 goes...not too bad.  Nothing necessarily super exciting, but some nice figures included.  It just seems like much of the first two waves has lost something just because we've known about them for so long at this point, not that that should change the quality of the figures themselves.  I'm getting to the point with a lot of the prequel stuff (clones in particular) that the previous versions are "good enough" for me, and can't see myself buying a whole lot more, if any.

Good call on going with an older Lita pic, not current...  current, bit of a mess.

I figured going all the way back the Runaways would be too far. And now...not so much.

I just put in for all 5.  Thanks for the heads up.  With Prime this is definitely the way to go.  Same price as in stores without any of the searching.

I put an order in for a few of these via Amazon as well.  I'm glad that these are available there, since retail is spotty at best and so far these have been waves that I don't necessarily want an entire set of.  Works out well.  I saw some pictures of these over at JTA, Pablo Jill looks like the winner - not so sure about Mara Jade (although I did order her).

the stormtrooper seems to show more color in the chin than previous versions
but he misses the dots on stomach armour.

I got an email from amazon saying wave 2 will be delayed and should they keep my order. Why does Hasbro suck  so much?

Maybe they're fixing up that bird poop on the Stormies helmet?

WTF happened to Mara Jade's hair?  I think I'll be following Jayson's idea of swapping a Marvel Universe Black Widow head in its place.

Hmmm... I don't think it looks great, but I do think it looks better.  Is that first hair style going to show up as a variation?
