Wow - click here -

Take a closeup look at the Foul Moudama boots here -

Looks like the boots could be removable by the back side of them?  See the straps?  Looks like the boots can come off easily.

Wow, now with better pics it really looks like they just took Muftak and sculpted him a robe and boots...  >:(

Very cool pics, how do they get them so early?!

Stupid question - is Cody all new tooling or kit bashed?

Nice to get some carded, and closer loose, looks at this wave.  Judging by the numbering, it looks like these should be after the Geonosis wave and before the Mos Eisley one.  I've said it before, I'm not a carded collector, but this 2006 collection sure does look purdy on those cards.  Definitely one of the best packaging jobs out there, as far as appearance I would think.  Nice.  Looks like Carkoon, Hoth, Geonosis, Coruscant, and Mos Eisley to start out the year then.  If there are carded pics already of this wave, who knows how quickly these will continue to be released.  If we do see 4-5 waves in the first 3 months, and that pace continues, I'm going to have to re-evaluate what "other things" I'll be collecting this year.  It'll be too tough to keep up otherwise :).

Also, aside from some new "clothes", it looks like this wave basically has 3 new figures and 6 repacks/retools/repaints.  Hopefully the ratio will shift a little bit for the rest of the waves this year.

Is it just me, or do Cody's shoulders look like the more traditional shoulder joints, instead of ball-socket joints in this pic?

Looking at his left shoulder, you might be right.  It almost looks like a more standard joint, but you'd think they would know better than that, wouldn't they?  It does sort of appear that way though.

It looked like the arms from the AT-TE Gunner/Tactical Ops Trooper, but I see ball joints at the elbows.  Looks ok to me.

Looking at that, it looks like they went Bacara on Cody's left arm.  That's not a ball joint.  Look's like Cody's left arm only moves forward and backward.
If you vote for me all of your wildest dreams will come true.  Thank you.

Why is Cody on a Firespeeder Pilot stand?

I personally think the right elbow has a cut joint and not a ball

That's what I thought too Scott, until I looked at Chewie's comment, then looked again and can't make up my mind.  But it looks like it swivels out and back only, not really looking like a ball joint. 

I see there are numbers on the figure package fronts as well, Obi is #28.

Maybe it's not a ball joint elbow on the left arm.  It kinda looks like it I though, but maybe not.

Looks like they used the Firespeeder Pilot stand for several figures in the pics at RS.

To me, it looks like this:

Left shoulder - traditional
Left elbow - ball
Right shoulder - traditional
Right elbow - ball
