Hi All,

Hasbro just posted pics of the 2nd 2004 wave, Luke, Drink R2, and R1 Astromech:

AND they announce the full line up for 2004 Wave 3!!!

"And check back next month to see the next Wave of 2004 3 ¾"; figures from Jabba's Palace including Lando Calrissian in Skiff Guard Disguise, Shawda Ubb, J'Quille, Elom, and Holographic Luke Skywalker, as well as the next release of Ultra figures including Jabba the Hutt and a three pack of B'Ommar Monk, Bubo & Wol Cabbashite."

Thanks for the link Nakatu!  This is great news, all the figures shown look great I think, and the announcements are a nice surprise as well!  Personally, I've always hoped they would make a new Lando in Skiff Disguise, and all of the other Jabba's aliens announced sound great.  2004 is shaping up to be a great year, don't you think? :)

Where is Bib Fortuna?  Weequay?  I'm almost more excited to get Elom and the Whipid

Thanks for the news Jeff ;)

Thanks for the pictures Scott.  I had no idea who Wol Cabbashite was.  Well, I still don't...guess I'll have to watch ROTJ this weekend. ;)

This figure is my most wanted figure of '04 I think...the best Luke ever!

I am sooooo happy about these announcements!  I can't believe we are going to get J'Quille, Elom, and Bubo finally!  I just wish Hermi Odle was in the mix but this will work for me.  Can't wait to see the pics next month.  

I never thought they would make that thing hanging from Jabba's ceiling or whatever it's on.  I am interested to see what the B'omarr Monk will look like.  

Overall I am stoked :)

Shawda Ubb (Rappertunnie) is going to be a single carded fig?  Seems small to me.

Just wanted to point out...

2. Vintage Klaatu
5. Hermi Odle
6. Skiff Nikto
7. Yarna d'al' Gargan
8. Weequay Skiff Master
9. J'Quille
10. Sgt Doallyn

This is my Jabba's Palace Portion of my top 10 ROTJ list...I really think they could do another Jabba's Wave later in the year with Weequay, Yarna, Doallyn and Hermi and have another Klaatu/Barada/Nikto Screen scene with alternatives to the original troika

Sweet!!

Can't wait to see pics of the rest.  If they're anywhere near as good as the Luke, R2 and R1, then next year is shaping up to be great.

I totally agree with this.  I have been wanting a really good Luke for a long time, specifically in his Jedi garb.  That version has always been my favorite.  I personally think the face sculpt on this Luke figure looks fantastic, and easily the best we've seen.  Lots of great figures next year...and lots of Lukes by the looks of things...Hoth Luke, Jedi Luke, Hologram Luke :).

That R1-G4 figure looks incredible!  I've been wanting that droid made for a long time now!  And that Luke Skywalker looks great too!  They all look great!
