Me love freaky ass aliens.  Bring them on.  Only question Hasbro - Where is my Hem Dazon figure?  First cantina alien seen and no immortalization in plastic yet?  Blasphemy.

These are actually really nice.

I wonder if these will get light shipment or end up being like the last POTJ Cantina guys like Zutten, that pegwarmed massively. There's still snaggletooth figures hanging at a couple TRUs around here.

Nice news Scott...  They are indeed a nice set of figures.  I mean, 3 Cantina aliens at one time?  That's a dream come true that hasn't been seen since the POTF2 cinema scenes, and these figures are substnatially superior to the old 3-pack figures.

Myo's currently ranking as my favorite I think.  That's just really good detailing going on.  Can't wait to have these 3 in the bar...  I'm gonna have to take some of my filler figures out.  I have XD pilots in there, the Toht, the Gestapo guy from Raiders is in there, a space man figure, and damn near a dozen Jawas drinking away.  :)  These 3 are welcomed by me for sure.  Good customizing sources too, especially if you're into fan-fic.

Can't wait to make an Abyssian Rebel Pilot or soldier.

They're up from preorder at EE now with a November release. It looks like the Chewbacca, Yoda, and Stormtrooper are just reships on OTC cards, with a Sandtrooper. Maybe they just left the OTC # off of Han.

I put an order in for this too.  The Han has my curiousity.  Hopefully it will be the POTJ Bespin version or Hoth version.  Either would look nice on the OTC cards.  As will the Sandtrooper. 

Im beginning to think we are going to see a few more rehash figs on these cards before EP3, which is fine with me.  Would love to see some of the pack-in figs from over the years here.

I also pre-ordered this wave...

It will be interesting to see how that Sandtrooper is carded, as well as which Carded Han that is.  Is it the OTC, or is it a different Han?  Hmmm...

With this wave probably shipping next month, I bet we will see another onslaught of rehashes before ROTS.  Especially with the Holiday Season approaching.  No complaints here though.  I just love these cards.  I also heard a rumor that the Scout Trooper being released again will be the dirty version this time around, and as for the Han, could Hasbro be stupid enough to give us the cantina version again.  I just dont see this happening.

If they're smart they put that Sandtrooper on a desert backdrop with a dewback behind him, and posed holding his binoculars. Could be a great card. I swear that they will indeed have the balls to reship Cantina Han again, this being the "Cantina" wave. Bastards.

I'm actually at a point where I think some PT rehashes would be in order. Get the SA Clone out again asap, and things like Coleman Trebor, Tusken Raider Female, and Battle Amidala that haven't been seen in some time.

The SA Clone is the most needed reship in my opinion.

Looking at these pics over at GH, I'm dissappointed the Cantina figures are not going to be labelled OTC at all.

I guess the real question now is what the Sandtrooper's card will say...

Looks like Rebelscum has a pic up of the Sandtrooper carded.  The background photo is nice, but it is packaged like the other 2005 figures and named "Tatooine Search".
