Not quite sure I like the non-removable helmet aspect of Lando - why does Luke have one then? - but I find myself loving this segment of the line more and more. I'm a vintage guy through and through and these more and more thread that needle between perfect modern sculpting and a general vintage aesthetic. The paint apps aren't really there, but some of these figures are leagues beyond previous versions. Yoda I think is the best example. That MS Yoda dropping any day now destroys basically every modern Yoda Hasbro has done and that's saying something. Ditto Hoth Han and Bespin Han and Endor Han - basically all the Han's.

So I was thinking about what else I want to see here in this line and here's what I got. Trying to keep it simple:

SW:

Farm Boy Luke
Obi-Wan Kenobi
Sand People
Jawa(s)
Tarkin
Rebel Fleet Trooper

ESB:

Hoth Leia
Bespin Lando
Hoth Rebel Trooper
Snowspeeder Wedge/Luke
Zuckuss
4-LOM

ROTJ:

The Emperor
Emperor's Royal Guard - who I think is coming anyways
Endor Rebel Soldier
TIE Pilot
Wedge
More Ewoks

CW (because the dream never dies):
Obi-Wan in Mandalore Armor
Satine
Bo Katan
Nightsister
Bounty Hunter Ventress

I was starting to think some of these Legends figures were alright, then today I got Bly and the Endor versions of Luke, Leia, and Han.

What a bunch of clunkers.  The Han's the only decent one.  The Luke looks deformed.

I was thinking the same exact thing. The vintage Endor Leia was a much better figure than this legends version.

And I didn't know the Lando Skiff guard helmet was not removable. Wow. In a negative way.

Tough to beat the TVC Lando Skiff Sandstorm fig anyway.

I'm not a huge fan of existing Endor Han, Luke, or Leia but I prefer them for what they are ultimately.  Would love a new Han tho of the 3.  The 5 POA just doesn't cut it for me on these mains.  Some of them are appealing, especially unmade characters that are kind of obscure like the Jedi Guard.  But on these mains, even barrel torso Han just was better to me.

Why are 5POS figures $9.99 at TRU? Is this so they can put them on sale for $6.99 in the future?

It's the final stages of the ol' articulation bait and switch.
