Holy Schnikes!

56 Basic figures?!?

Look at all those names...

AT-TE Gunner?!?  I hope this means an AT-TE is on the way!

Anakin Skywalker on Mustafar!  I wonder what that means as far as "battle damage" goes?!?

TARKIN?!?!  :o

Ah, crap... so much for avoiding spoilers.  :(

I love days like this - so much to look forward to!!

This might be a stupid question, but has anyone heard if all of these are new sculpts?  You don't think they'd sneak any repacks in would they?  I'm expecting they're all new since they are all specific to ROTS, but any possibility that Hasbro would simply repaint some old sculpts for some characters?  Geez, I must be getting pessimistic despite my excitement.   ???:)

Amazon has release dates for a few ROTS vehicles as February 8th. Why I never rely on Amazon I wonder if we could see anything else earlier?

Obi-Wan's Starfighter? Guh. It's probably just a repainted Anakin's Starfighter.

And the cost just keeps building up. Perhaps the spreading over time is going to be benefitical to prevent clogging and keep some funds.

If this list is correct there will be 32 basic figures coming out in April alone.  Wow!  That's not counting vehicles, deluxe, 12 inchers, etc.

Galactic Hunter has some front carded shots up of Collection 1 figures Yoda (2nd version), Tarfful, Anakin (2nd), and Obi-Wan (2nd).  Looks like the second versions of Ani, Obi, and Yoda have some sort of action feature (spinning attack?).  Check out the eyes on that Anakin figure though...creepy ;).  Tarfful looks nice.

The wookies are getting interesting, to say the least.  This is how ROTJ should have been ;)

That Yoda figure looks passable.  As in I may pass on it.  Slashing feature?  Blech, straight down motion, I would hazard.  Anakin looks like I do after going out drinking.  Best not to mess with me either.   :-X

On second thought, that Obi Wan doesn't look so hot.  The first one has more articulation.   Anakin looks really good as does the Wookie.   Yoda looks great on the card but I'll wait and compare the two before I make my decision.

Hmmm.... I think

Anakin looks kickass - definitely a must buy; maybe several of these will be needed.

Obi Wan is iffy - yeah I'll get it, but I might not like this one too much.

Tarrful - duh, of course I'm getting multiples of him.

Yoda - ...this figure looks terrible... but the base does look interesting... I might pick it up for that.   :-[

Hmmmm, I have not seen a Yoda I like yet. 
Anakin, I still like it better than the 1st version.
Kenobi, not as good as I thought but it will do for me. 
Tarful, really looks great to me.  He's a definite must have for me.

Dear Hasbro, the character name is "Anakin Jedi Massacre" not "Anakin Jedi Mascara'.

Not too impressed with these, but Tarfful looks ok, and I'm happy his action feature seems limited to his bowcaster.

RS has good pics of the Boga up here.

What a huge leap in paint app quality over the AOTC beasts. Looks good!

Yikes!  That does look nice!  The feet look great too, so it should stand very level - thanks for the pic!!!
