Wow, its amazing how much a nicely done wave of figures can turn things around - at least for me. Just a couple of days ago I was about to log in here to post how this is maybe the most bored I have been with Star Wars collecting for quite some time, maybe ever. The 3 3/4" line just wasn't getting me with the first couple waves, and aside from some neat exclusives (Slave I, Ewok Catapult, Scanning Crew sets) and the 6" line, there just wasn't much to be excited about, particularly for an entire year. Now we get images of Wave 4, and that is pretty much forgotten. I hope this is the route we see taken for the rest of 2014, because these look pretty amazing.
The Luke and Yoda alone would have sold me, they both look great and I hope the production pieces look as nice as these early shots do. I was a fan of the OTC Luke, but it is nice to see it done up with all the articulation and detail they can put into a figure these days. I liked the OTC Yoda well enough as well, but it just didn't seem like they had really nailed the Original Trilogy Yoda with the previous attempts. This one looks about perfect. Throw in Toryn Farr, a nifty Snowtrooper, a requested Wedge Antilles, and it is all pretty well done. Aside from the ROTS Vader, it is pretty much a "themed" wave again. Can't wait for these figures to hit. I haven't been preordering the waves online with the Black Series yet, because I've really been picking and choosing, but I won't hesitate for this one
