Just saw this morning that GH has their "preview" up for this wave, with several loose shots.  Looks like Han has a new headsculpt, which doesn't look too bad to me, especially for a ROTJ Han Solo.  However, looking at the close up pic, the paint apps look like they leave a little to be desired, but maybe it is better once in person.  Anyways, you can check out the Generals in all their glory here:

I was just popping in to mention the same thing about that paintjob on his head. It looks bad. It's a real shame since that Solo head does appear to be new and a really good ROTJ likeness.

I thought I was being too harsh, but if you then look at the Madine head shots in the same series, it's beautifully done, so there's no excuse. This appears to be the start of a trend as well. I'm of the opinion that Ozzel is about on par with the Han for paint apps on the head. Cheap. That's too bad. Quality control, please, Hasbro?

I think the GH samples are exactly that... early sales samples.  

You can tell because of the Hasbro logo stickers applied to back of the cards (upper right hand corner).

I think that's why paint is mis-applied on Lando's eyes and Han's head looks strange.  Hopefully the final production head paint jobs will be finished up/finalized and look a little better.

Han, I'll pass on.  Lando, I'll need to see the figure to decide but I will pick up Crix, since I do not have him.

So I finally took a had long look at these last night after picking up a set via trade.  Nice figures.  Han Sucks, but I am excited to do some head swaps with him in the same token once he is a little easier to find.  Great Harrison Ford likeness.  Too bad its such a stoopid choice of a figure

Madine is my favorite and one that I've wanted for ever so long and Lando is also top shelf, great Billy Dee likeness.

Haven't opened them yet, anyone else found them???

I think I have missed this wave several times. I keep running by Lando Skiff, Luke Hoth, ect. I think these figs are in that wave. I hope to find them before too long.

I lucked out.  A friend of mine found a couple of sets at a local store and picked the wave up for me.  I like the Lando the most.  Nicely done!  Madine ranks second for me.  The arm articulation is nice, and I like the figure overall.  I'm somewhat indifferent about the Han Solo.  It's good, but the freak collector in me knows it's kind of a kitbash.  But hey, I'll take a new figure over a reissue any day.

Finally found the Han Solo of this wave. Still have not found Lando or Madine. This is the first time that I have seen this wave in Indy. The guys stocking said this wave has been in the store a few times already.

Cool Beans!

I just got an e-mail notice that my Endor Generals case has shipped from NewForce.  Now, I've just got to wait it out until June 1st for them to get here... which probably means I'll see tons of this wave at Target this weekend :P

Jeff

ps.
Anyone still looking for the Star Destroyer wave or Endor General Han or Madine, I've got extras from the case for sale here.

K...Brian and Matt have both asked though.  I think Brian is all set and in that case I might have some left overs for the Canuckians (although I thought you were set on these too)
