This wave is now available at EE and is showing as in stock.  No longer showing in stock. Still got my order confirmation though. Must of gotten limited cases.  Will have a spare Sly and Padme if anyone wants to trade.

Picked mine up today. Bless EE.

Scott, does your Padme have a lazy eye? Sort of looks like it from the pic. 2 of the 3 Padmes in the case had a similar look to them to your pictures.

I have to say the Sly is the winner of the assortment for sculpting. She's very well done, which wasn't expected.

They're all up on Amazon now, if anyone feels like paying a nice steep $7.99 for them.  :o Sounds like the price hike is damn real.

Ah, Naboo Wave, I was looking for this thread.  I was thinking more in terms of Post-OTC.  Anyway, I found these over the weekend, and they are indeed $5.88 at Wal-Mart.

My Amidala has a pretty good paint job (except for a pock-mark below the neck), and I like the sculpt of the costume.  Her feet can't really touch the ground past those robes, but I can fix that.  I'm not crazy about his head style, but overall it works.

I agree about Sly Moore - neat sculpt, decent movement of the arms for the robes, and a really good job on the face.  Its funny this will probably be the pegwarmer, just because I can't imagine the character will be that attractive.

Rabé - oh please!  Can there be a worse figure?  This is the cost-cutting result of an inbetween line of figures.  I'll just leave it at Blech!

Oh ****. I have egg on my face. The pegs still say 4.77 and I got rang up at 5.88. I had them give me my money back and made a big to-do over it.

Picked up two Pablo-Jill figures. One as an opener for myself and one for trade fodder. I like him.

Found these today, too at WM, well Padme anyway.  She's one of my favorite pieces in all the years I've been collecting.  Except she can't stand up.  At all.  Sigh.

Simple solution, figure stand.

She has a problem even with a stand.  At least mine anyways.  She wont even fit on one.  Either the one included or a realstand due to the heels on her shoes.  The pegs just arent long enough.  She slants too much when standing.

Thats pretty odd. I have heard some collectors shoot a glob of hot glue down, and stick their foot in it. It pops right off I guess.


Maybe that's a workable solution?

Stopped at Toys R Us today - 2 full pegs of Rabe. Had to be at least 25. A handful of Sly Moore and Yarua, but only 1 Pablo Jill. Awesome. Peg warmers already.

If these go on clearance, count me in for a lot more Wookiees for customs, and why the hell not, a few Rabes too.
