Yeah, no kidding!  :o Those all look fantastic! I love the mechanical leg sockets on the Vader. Add two army builders, and I'm way happy.

Now here's to hoping the first wave doesn't clog up the works...

This batch of Deluxe really does look nice.  I'm looking forward to the Vader and Clone for sure, and the Yoda on Cancell might be fun too.  Lots of goodies on the way...although I agree, hopefully the first series doesn't clog the pegs all summer long.

Yeah, that is the problem with these retailers.  They have all probably bought 2000 cases of the first products and that is what will sit until they sell.  Then they will blame the consumer because Star Wars "does not sell."  You know the drill.

And lest we forget that Hasbro, for the umpteenth time in the last ten years of doing modern SW toys, has once again loaded down the initial assortments with the less interesting figures and put the ones that people would be more likely to buy multiples of in the later assortments.

They did it with the Darktrooper/Spacetrooper wave of EU figures, they did it with the CommTech Stormtrooper, and they did it (in a huge way) with the Clone Wars SA Clone Trooper.  Now they're doing it again by putting the three arguably coolest deluxe figures in the last group of figures.

At this point, Hasbro should just start putting "Ebay Exclusive" on the packages even if they do ship them to regular retail.   ::)

Well, Hasbro's got some nicer pictures of the Deluxe wave 2 up now...

http://www.hasbro.com/starwars/pl/page.news/id.1165/dn/default.cfm

The pictures at Hasbro are a little clearer, and Vader's shows all the stuff he comes with (Helm, legs, etc).  I also like that the Vulture droid comes with a buzz droid, nice little add on.

I think the operating table looks GREAT. I can't wait to get my hands on one of these! I'm surprised that they are showing something like this so soon.

Does anyone think that this means they are trying to get this product to the shelves by the 2nd as well? It strikes me as odd that such a spoiler-iffic figure like the operating table Vader would be out so far in advance of the movie. It kinda gives it away that Obi-Wan slices and dices Anakin before he bursts into flame!

Those are all looking great!  I have visions of Han Bespin Customs being made with the Vader Medical table.  Cool stuff :)

Wow - based on the pics, all of these look fantastic... will need at least two of each to open... and several more of the Clone... they should ship solid cases of the Clone...

 :P

This awesome next wave of deluxe figures from the Action Assortment features awesome detailing and poseability combined with larger action accessories.

Apparently, they consider this wave to be... awesome.  :P

The Can-Cell is the only one I'm not gung-ho for. I have high hopes for the Vulture Droid, though. I remember having to pick up the Action Fleet version in the Ep1 days to have a good version to replace the 3-pack vehicle one.

Wow...  I mean, just wow.

Vader's a neat gimmick, the Clone Specialist looks like an SA Clone with great accessories, the Vulture Droid is EASILY a must-have in multiples, and I'll take Yoda with Cancel since it's a neat looking item.

That Clone though...  I gotta have a sqad of those guys.  Gonna cost me, but they're must-haves.

Wow, those are looking GREAT so far. I'll definately be getting some Clones and a Vader, maybe a Vulture as well.

Are these still going to be $10?
