Thanks, I'm glad were on the same page.  ;)

As for the Endor pack?  I think Adam is wrong on the Imperial Officer.  I think it's a straight-up reissue of the figure from the K-Mart exclusive 2-pack.

To clarify, I wasn't quoting Adam regarding the figure, I was quoting him on the phrase "different enough to make you mad".

On further review, it does look like the Kmart Officer. I hope so, because I'd really like to be able to skip this set.

I did a comparison between the YN image and the K-Mart Imperial Officer.  They're pretty much identical.  The face sculpt and the rank badge are the real tell-tales here.  And they both matched when I compared them.

JTA's reporting that we're to get 18 new (sculpt, non-repaint, etc) figures this fall... I believe this doesn't include Doallyn, Ree-Yees, etc.  I can't believe it's this Fall, but I guess more's to be revealed at SDCC.

So, let the guessing begin as to who's going to be coming.  I think Yakface was one and Bespin Escape Leia.

Hmmm...  Captain Antilles?

A new Disco Lando?

I'm wondering where pricing is heading now.  ::)

"Every last figure of this wave of 18 is NOT a carry-forwarded, repacked, or reissued figure. Not one of them."

We'll see. Malgus and Starkiller are clearly carry forwards. How are they going to do an 18+ figure wave?

At any rate, happy to see SA Captain  Rex pop up on the list. Been waiting on him for awhile now.

The figures listed above are not a part of the 18 "all new" figures coming later. That being said, Hasbro has said before (regarding a previous line) that the figures would be "all new" and that wasn't quite accurate. I expect the same here.

To get technical, to the carded completist a Vintage figure on a Black Series card is a new figure, so they are right...from a certain point of view. Seems to me they're playing up the fact that assortments won't be jacked by figures from previous waves is all. But how many figures come in a case these days? Will this "wave" be spread over four cases or so?

Not much to that list that interests me so far. They're all redos of figures I find okay or EU I don't care for. Never saw an INC so I might pick up one of those if the paint looks good, otherwise I'll be happy with my 30AC version.

It is fun to see EU Legends figures still being manufactured.

If you need a TVC INC, I'll give you one. I have plenty.  :)

Boushh Leia makes me think Carbonite Han upgrade may be closer than we thought.  :)

Among other JP goodies.  :-X

I only hope that any potential Carbonite Han comes with an actual Han figure AND a retooled carbon block from the SDCC Jar-Jar figure. That would be a nice way to make up for the POS Yoda statue with fabric bag, so of course it won't happen.

I can't wait for the long overdue Captain Rex, and the R5 should also be nice. Oddly enough I'm also looking forward to the Wampa attack Luke. I have the TVC Hoth version displayed with the mask on the Tauntaun, so I don't mind getting a variant of that outfit to display "on foot".

Yeah, the R5 and Rex will be nice, but the others are kind of boring, seems like way too many redos in the Black Series, very few that are genuinely new. And as far as redos go, I think we've needed a new cinnabun hair Leia way before any others, particularly Boushh, who I happen to think holds up pretty well in all honesty. Be nice if they could at least slap a new head on that Navy Commander, maybe do the ol grey tunic variant or somthing.

We saw all of these except Vader and Leia at Toy Fair ((or they are repacks) no?
