Sora Bulq: I'll be buying him for sure.

Sun Fac: Maybe, but probably not.

RC: Here is where I differ with most. I'll be passing on this figure. Big, Ugly, it looks like it belongs in GI Joe (no offense to GI Joe collectors).  It's just not a "Star Wars" figure for me so it is a very EASY pass.

3-PO: Jango: Rehashes are like kissing a cousin, SICK so I'll pass on these.

Yoda: Looks like the Bandito Yoda from the CW to me but no matter what I'll pass.

I think the biggest thing collectors are going to face next year is that most of the rehashes will clog the pegs and I really believe will slow up the availability of more popular waves/figures.

I'll be getting the Commando and maybe Sun Fac. But I do have a special place in my heart for that Jango, back in '02 it was my first SW fig.  :)

I hate to say it, but I still think the Super Battle Droid, Battle Droid and Geo Warrior all need to be redone.  The SBD has mininal articulation and the stance is not the greatest.  The only problem with the BD is the plastic they use.  And the Geo Warrior needs to be able to stand better.  Maybe add feet a bit bigger that would allow a peghole for stands.  Im in no hurray for any of these updates but they would be nice eventually.

Why so much hate for Jango?

I personally like this version - it's my choice for best Jango yet. 

Great for kids I guess...

I don't think it is hate for Jango personally - just the fact that he's just another 2006 repack and NOT the brand new vOTC-esque SA sculpt that everyone was secretly hoping for...  :-\

Could they have just kitbash a VOTC Boba, repaint it and give it a removable helmet and call it a day. Hmm… maybe that a custom I'll have to tackle one day.

I guess Hasbo thinks it would be too hard to take one of the Boba Fett molds (of which I like several) and adjust it and repaint it to make a Jango Fett.  I'd LOVE a figure like that as Jango Fett is cool but the old version they are trying to pass on us is a stinker  :P and most (dare I say all) collectors -- as well as kids who were old enough when AOTC came out -- already have one or two of that version!

That's just the thing, there's no real incentive to buy this version of Jango.  I would have been happy with a repaint of the Boba Pit of Carkoon fig with the rocket base.  That would have been different, at least.

According to some info I got from EE this morning, here's how the case assortment looks:

Star Wars Saga Collection Action Figures Wave 3:
1x Clone Trooper
1x Sora Bulq
1x Jango Fett
1x Scorch (Republic Commando)
2x Sun Fac
2x C-3PO/Battle Droid
2x Poggle the Lesser
2x Yoda

And no, I'm not kidding.  This is what EE sent over today (should be up for order on the website today).

2x Sun Fac and 2x Poggle, while the Commando and Jedi are at 1x.   ::)

Interesting to note that EE has a Clone Trooper listed there despite it not showing up on Hasbro's list Tuesday.  Hmmm.....

That Clonetrooper listing is interesting.  Thanks for the info Jeff.  The case pack stinks if that is what it turns out to be though.  The figure I want most out of that wave, Sora Bulq, is 1 per case and so is the likely to be popular Clone Commando/Scorch.  I expect there will be quite a few green buggies hanging on the pegs after this wave hits.

What the ****. Seriously, would it kill them to go: x2 clone, x2 sora, 1 jango, x3 scorch, x1 c3po, 1 yoda, 2 poggle, 2 sun fac???

Of course it would.

Hasbro still can't figure out assortments. I guess they figure kids will want that crap @ss 3PO. It better come with 3PO's head.
Hey Hasbro, Wake the #@$! UP!!

1x Jango Fett
1x Scorch (Republic Commando)
2x Sun Fac
2x C-3PO/Battle Droid
2x Poggle the Lesser
2x Yoda

Amazing. The only thing right in that breakdown is Jango at x1. This wave is going to do two things:

1) Be over-ordered because the first and second Saga waves will sell well.
2) Sit on the shelf because people know **** when they see it.

And we're going to be swimming in Poggles and 3PO's for the rest of the year. I hope this breakdown changes real quick like.
