You're right - I guess I should have said it was Mosep who was retconned into the light-haired nimban, not the dark hair version was retconned into Tawss. ;)

However you want to describe it, thanks to the SW.com article, I always thought Mosep was supposed to be the dark haired guy.  Now, he's the light-haired one for some reason. 

Like I said - either way, I'm happy to buy any cantina or Jabba Palace alien they make, even if they can't keep the names straight anymore thanks to all the changes over the years. :)

Han (not there) and the Jawas really look like a nice package at the new price. 

The others, not so much but I will deal.  Agreed on Mosep...  I'm just happy to buy a new cantina alien again, whatever the name.  Like Doallyn's doppelgänger, it'll just be a nice thing to own and buy.

Leia looks snazzy.  I liked boussh as a kid so a nice ultimate version of her is fun.  I wish I knew what ubesians looked like without the helmet.  I would do a custom Boussh before she got to him.

I love this comment on their forum:

"Ist schon jemandem aufgefallen das Commander Thorn in dieser Sortierung die Nummer 15 hat und in der US/Canadischen die Nummer 21?!? What gives?"

How so?  When I saw that rumored assortment a few weeks ago, I cancelled my Wave 7 pre-order in favor of this case. 

I want 9/12 of the Wave 8 case (Rex, Thorn, Doom, Dutch, Chewie, Han, Boushh, Jawas, Mosep).  Just have to track down Wolffe (who is 2x per case in Wave 7) and a second Han to keep carded.

I guess I was hoping for extras of the new stuff and fewer 7 repacks.  2 Han would've been nice for sure.  I also don't want Chewbacca, 3po, etc... 

I ordered wave 7 singles, and am hopeful I can do the same with 8.

They look like Carrie Fischer 30 years ago.

I really like this case assortment too, because I can skip Wave 7 entirely. The non-Rex Clones I'm not crazy about, but I could probably trade them for Imperial Navy Commandos from Wave 7 or something.

Has EE offered this wave yet?  I couldn't find it on their site.  Or is it sold out and removed already?
