I just hope they keep a new gunner at a reasonable hight. There needs to be some quality control in that regard. And happy to get a new Ree Yees.

So out of the first ten or so OT 6" figures, we're looking at 3 Lukes?

Yikes.

Yeah... that has me re-thinking being a "completist" for the 6" scale. Too many Lukes for such a short time span.

I don't think anyone made a note of it but it looks like there is a "Sandtrooper Redeco" listed in the wave with Vader and Jedi Luke. It would be cool if there is different weathering and accessories (probe droid, dewback staff, rifle from TVC Sandtrooper) with the release, but I'm guessing it will just be a pauldron re-color.

Hmmm, Hoth Han?  It'd better be brown coat because that Target one was Blue and I was planning a custom figuring we may not get an update...  I'm intrigued by the Hoth Luke too.  Hope it's a lil more than just a new head because, personally, I think that Hoth Luke sucked.

It's very tall, and other than the face sculpt, I hated just about everything about it.  The torso, the molded-on thigh strap, the inaccurate height, the goofy looking shoulder joints and odd hand sculpting...  Not a good figure for a main character in a major outfit/action sequence.

They're missing at least one 6" figure, since those are coming in groups of three.

Agreed it's too many Lukes...

From that list found on Hasbro's website last year by Greg:

SW R5 G19    A7261
SW EP6 SGT DOALLYN    A7262
SW EP6 REE YEES    A6795
SW EP5 HOTH LUKE WAMPA ATTACK    A8056
SW EP5 DARTH VADER YODAS TEST    A8058

SW 6 INCH EP4 CHEWBACCA    A6520
SW 6 INCH EPII CLONE TROOPER    A7529
SW 6 INCH EP5 DARTH VADER    A7268
SW 6 INCH EP6 LUKE JEDI    A7270

SW EP5 SNOWTROOPER    A6135

SW EP5 DARTH VADER VS LUKE SKYWALKER   A5920
SW EPV BOBA FETT W STORMTROOPER    A5233

So out of the stuff on this list that wasn't known about when that list was leaked, only Hoth Han, Legends Maul, and three of the Missions packs weren't on it.

I thought from here on out, the new waves would consist of 3 new figures and 1 carry forward from a previous wave.

I hope they get to the original cantina guys in 6" scale.  Would be great to have Hammerhead, Walrusman, and Snaggletooth alongside Greedo.

That's 100% correct, they only had eight 6" figures listed, so they were missing one somewhere. (3+3+3=9)

I can't remember who it is supposed to be, but I'm pretty sure it has been floated out there somewhere.

I'm kinda concerned about the 3.75 inch figures too... wasting valuable spots on figures with new heads?
