I found these today as well.  I didn't buy Ozzel, but Dengar and Bossk are very cool.  I also found the Yavin wave at TRU, and after ripping open the two pilots, found them somewhat disappointing.  Neither has waist articulation, nor any worthwhile articulation in the left arm (sans wrist).  The sculpts are fantastic but the 'strategic' articulation thing Hasbro has going doesn't really work nor make any sense.

Still, nice to find something.

Well, I'm pretty much caught up, except this wave. I got my BBTS order today, and the order from OMG..... should arrive in the next few days.

Bring 'em on.

Opened these puppies last night...I'll stand by my first thought that a Bossk resculpt was not very high on the list of resculpts we needed, its a good figure and all but not a huge upgrade on the POTF2 version

Dengar on the other hand is now in my top 10 all time favorites...he absolutely rules.  The Shoulder joints, the butt loads of articulation, the backpack, the spot on head sculpt, the great work on the armor and jumpsuit...he is a perfect 10 in my book.  Great figure

Ozzel is so so...I've wanted an Ozzel for some time, I'm not really high on the Ball/Neck thing its a neat experiment but I don't really like it.  What I do like though is that with a few minor paint changes they could possibly throw out more Imperial Officers with a new head very easily

 :o Holy crap! I have Dengar sitting here next to me on the desk, opened, and I had no idea that he had ball joints at the shoulders until I just read this. Nice. He does indeed rule. Now I can put him into goofy poses that make him look like an old wrestler.

I'm pretty impartial to Bossk. I guess the POTF2 one was fine. The arm articulation on the resculpt is nice, but the jointed feet don't seem to have much point.

I'd be happier with Ozzel if the paint apps on the head didn't absolultey suck. He might be some good custom fodder, though.

Dengar is definitely one of the coolest figs of the year, and a necessary resculpt as compared to Bossk.  The new Bossk, while cool enough, just wasn't needed.

Has anyone noticed the case assortments for this wave at SWS.com??
They have an assortment labeled 5.1 that includes Bossk and company plus Elom.  

In fact, they have several "point" account waves.  I've noticed these over at EE also so it 's a thought for those of you still hunting for wave 5.

Yeah,there are some real interesting case assortments coming out.  I ordered Wave 6 at EE as it comes with alot of the current figs I'm looking for,but are non-existant around here:

2x Han Solo AT-ST Driver - Endor Strike (NEW), 2x General Madine - Imperial Shuttle Capture (NEW), 2x General Lando Calrissian - Death Star Attack (NEW), 1x Hoth Trooper, 1x Luke Skywalker - Hoth, 1x Lando in Skiff Guard Disguise, 1x Admiral Ozzel, 1x Dengar, 1x Bossk (subject to change).


I figure kill two birds with one stone and aquire the SD/Endor Wave in one shot.
