Got a set sans R4 tonight (One of the local guys just happened to be there scooping up the LAST R4, so we chatted for a few then parted ways).
I have to say, the Wookie is hands down the best figure out of the wave, and that's saying a lot because I'd say all 3 of the others are VASTLY superior efforts to E2's Sneak Preview wave, except perhaps the R4 compared to E2's R3 unit.
Anyway, the wookie simply rocks all. He's huge, he has completely removable armor (at least it appears to me his body armor or jewelery would come off if you worked the braids around it), and he holds a rifle with TWO hands! Yes, Hasbro has actually seen that it's important that a figure with a rifle hold it with two hands... Nice!
My only gripes are the big squares cut out of the soles of his feet, the sorta mis-matched paintjob on the fur at every separate piece (the figure almost looks like it was painted and then assembled, rather than the other way around), and that his helmet doesn't fit him well (falls off, so better loose than too tight so it won't fit on I figure). Oh, and his knee joints are VERY loose. Mine are anyway... They almost bow under his weight if posed the wrong way.
Still a grand figure... Something to behold.
It does appear that they're packing Tion Medon and R4 less to a case too. Not to raise panic, but R4's were all gone and Tion's were down to two when I got there while Wookies were all over the place as was Greivous.
I'm easily "in" on I'd say 10 more wookies... Dare I say this is one of the best army builder figures ever made by Hasbro, so hats off.
Tion Medon's what I expected. His cane's cool... He has a rifle that, unless it's used in the film, is a bit out of place as an accessory... He's really quite poseable for what he is actually, and he's a top-notch sculpt with great deco. He's dull though beyond being kinda freaky looking. (BTW, the Wookie's articulation is pretty nice too. Shame to see Hasbro dropping ball/sockets for angle-cuts in some places, but he's still lightyears ahead of anything offered in 2003 or prior, save for a SA Clone).
R4 I only got a glimpse of so my opinion stands.
Greivous is odd... His arms arne't as poseable as I can tell they could be, and as much as I'd like. He's got a great saber though, and apparantly someone at Hasbro fibbed to all the people who asked for "single-piece sabers" to come back because he's got the removable blade going on.
His robe actually CONNECTS to his chest via pinholes in his chest (very small and unnoticeable) and 2 small pins on his robe. Pretty nice.
He's still sporting a lot of articulation and 5 ball/socket joints which is great... His saber seems like it was intended to plug on him, but I can't tell if it does somewhere. He's a little tough to pose I'm finding, and I sorta am hoping for a more poseable one in the basic line. If not, this is a happy substitute... This guy gets you pumped for E3 though, lemme tell ya. Makes you want to see him in action. He just oozes evil, and I was one of the many who didn't care for the concept at first.
That's a mini review... Figure goodness I tells ya!
