Cool lineup, definitely.  I'm hoping that the Obi-Wan figure will indeed be an ANH version.  This listing does have a different product code in the etailers listing than the ROTS version of Obi-Wan.  I guess we'll have to wait and see what this new listing yields.

Watch them slap a new mulleted head on the existing Obi-Wan sculpt for an instant lazy Episode II version.

It wouldn't surprise me if they did.  A TPM Obi-Wan might actually be something to consider as a pairing to go with the Darth Maul figure from wave 1.

No more Obi-Wans for awhile please. There is still a major glut of them around here. The others will all be hot sellers.

That ROTS Obi-Wan cannot possibly be pegwarming as much as Greedo and Slave Leia.  In fact, near me, Han Solo is approaching pegwarmer status as well.

6" Peg Warming in St. Louis: Slave Leia, Greedo, Han, Obi-Wan and Bespin Luke...  4" Peg Warmers: Nothing in most places as there aren't any pegs for them.

Here it's Leia Leia Leia, with Greedo a close 2nd.  Han's still not around nearly as much (TRU some, one at any given KM I visit), aside from those TRU Cantina sets of course.

Not much of anything else...  The Deluxe figures are not exactly flying out the door, Scout included, but I'd not call pegwarmer on those yet by any means.  Leia's reigning champ for now.

This is the exact same as around here. I would feel compelled to make some kind of insinuation about human characters not being as appealing as the other figures, but Greedo messes up that theory.

"Pegwarming" at my stores in Austin:

- Target: Most stores have nothing. The ones that do have 2 Greedos, a Leia and a Han. You can occasionally find an Obi-Wan or a Bespin Luke if they've gotten a new case, and an occasional 3.75 inch figure
- Wal-Mart: All they sell anymore are toy lightsabers, but some stores still have TVC TPM figures with almost 3 years of dust
- TRU: See Target, except they have 10 3.75 inch Biggs figures

The last 2-3 years have really put 2002-2005 to shame

I think (I hope) my area here in Iowa is particular. Peg warming here:

Target: Anakin, Greedo, 1 Stormtrooper for about five days now.

Wal-Mart: only one case of Wave 3, but has not moved in over a week, including the Stormtrooper.

TRU: Everything is peg warming there, Wave 1-3 except for Boba and the Stormtrooper. They've had a Biker Scout for over a week.
