Am I the only one who looks at anything PT (even good stuff, and this figure looks good) and 2 seconds later forgets I even saw it? :)

I will say though, if I were buying 6" figs, I'd want Obi and a sweet (big) mining platform to go with this Ani.

This, along with the ROTS Obi-Wan coming out plus the base with lava/splooge from the Unleashed line could make for a great display.

Oh man, he looks TERRIBLE from the neck up, IMHO. Why does Hasbro fail so spectacularly at reproducing a decent Anakin likeness? Is this from the cut scene where Padme gives him a home perm? He looks like he used the low flow shower head from that Seinfeld episode!

I can't see how this would come from the same guy that did the Han sculpt, which is terrific. 

Plus didn't they already show this guy off in Europe earlier this year?

I think that head sculpt is pretty awful. Pass.

Glass half full: Awful headsculpt and absolutely no interest in the character incarnation/figure aside, the inclusion of soft goods is a nice indicator of what we can expect from future figs in the line.

Since it sounds like Anakin has been jettisoned from Wave 3 (or is that 2014 Wave 1), I've spun off his NYCC debut posts into this thread since we assume he'll be the first figure in Wave 4 (or 2014 Wave 2, whatever you want to call it). ;)

Looking forward to this one. Love this line so far.
Neither Snake nor Wesker, but a perfect combination of the two.

Based on the Toy Fair info, it looks like it's confirmed that this wave will be...

1x Ep2 Clone Trooper
1x Ep3 Anakin Skywalker
1x Ep4 Chewbacca
1x carry forward figure TBD

Chewbacca looks amazing!  I will certainly be picking him up.

Chewbacca may be the most amazing figure I've ever seen in this scale. amazing. Cannot wait for him. I wonder if given what we've heard on Hasbro leaving the PT behind if these will be the last PT figures we see in this line.

Agreed, love that Chewie, so well done.  Definitely looking forward to that one.  It seems like the 6" scale in general was a pretty big hit of Toy Fair, pretty much everything shown looks very nicely done.  Any news on when we can expect this wave?

Chewie looks great, but I think I would have preferred a closed mouth.  Still, I'll get it if I ever find it.

Wow, so Hasbro's decided to go with the most ridiculous possible strategy and use their repack slot in this assortment for the ROTS Obi-Wan Kenobi. Not only is he already destined to be the pegwarmer-in-waiting of wave 3, he's also the most haphazardly painted of the three figures in that wave, so it's going to be a double-disaster.

Why repack a hard-to-find figure like Boba Fett or, Jebus forbid, a Stormtrooper, when you can exacerbate your self-created retail logjams?  WAY TO LEARN YOUR LESSON, HASBRO.  ::)

The way they packaged Chewie is... interesting.
