You'd think Lando, or maybe Qi'ra - her red space cape would be great. I think if it were a TLJ fig they'd just say so.

So the Tank Driver that's in the box with the Hover Tank will also be carded individually? Or is the Tank Driver no longer going to be included with the Tank?

More fun stuff.  I like the Han a lot more than I expected.

Also the Tank Driver is not with the tank.  I've read a few people say that Hasbro at one time said it was, but I don't recall them saying that.

Thanks for the clarification - just saw a good shot of the Tank box it says "Figures in vehicle not included" - so I guess that settles it.

I'm glad, that way I can get a bunch extra of the figure like I'd normally want to do.  ;D

What CHEWIE said.  I don't ever recall Hasbro saying the tanker was coming with it but I see people thinking it is.  I think there is confusion because it's being shown and mentioned around the Tank since last year but yeah, I believe he's just a basic figure.

Man that Mimban Trooper and Range Trooper look pretty awesome.  Han too.  The quality figures make me even more amped to see the movie and what all they do.

This is a solid wave.  The Tank Driver will probably sell pretty well.  Especially since the tank calls for at least 3 of these guys for the crew complement.

As for the tank itself?  The packaging states explicitly that there aren't any figures included.

In looking at that close-up of the Tank Driver, it now occurs to me why the Scarif Trooper isn't on the radar for the TVC line.

The Tank Driver IS the Scarif Trooper with a different head, belt piece and deco.

Really like the new Han, and the troopers look great too. Surprised we were shown as much as we were this weekend, seems like Hasbro made a good showing.

That Han is going to be awesome for customizing random civilians and alt attires. The primary reason I picked up a few Finn figures.

Shouldn't the Tank Driver technically be classified as a repaint since it's the same sculpt as the Scariff Trooper? :D

Different head on the Tank Driver, but same body.

Yeah what Darb said...  The helmets are similar but different for sure.

I still giggle at a guy in armor being a tanker because those hatches would NOT be easy to get in and out of with armor on, haha.  Hell they'd be difficult even if you only were wearing coveralls.

Hmmm. This is about where it's no longer sensible for me to purchase by the case. Wave 2 already. If I allow myself to accept all troopers for opening, at two cases in order to keep a carded set, I'd be stuck with 2 Rey's, 2 Snoke's and 2 Kylo Ren's. 3/4 a case.  :-\

I'm in the same boat.

I wish the Hoth Trooper was carried forward instead of the First Order Stormtrooper. This way, I could skip buying the first case and just get two of this Wave 2 case and then pick up a Vintage Carded Jyn Erso (which we all know will be the peg warmer) and a First Order Stormtrooper (which is coming 2 per case) from WM or Target.

Maybe I'll just take the approach of getting 1x of each case with this line - I have an "opened" Vintage cardback collection, so I would have wanted to get at least one of all of the repacks to open (as crazy as that sounds) anyway, so 1 Wave 1 Case and 1 Wave 2 Case results in:

3x Snoke
3x FO Stormtrooper
1x Hoth Trooper
2x Rey
2x Kylo Ren
1x Jyn
1x Death Trooper
1x Han Solo
1x Enfys Nest
1x Tank Driver

Fingers crossed that Wave 3 will at least have the three new figures carried forward and that would leave only the need to find a Hoth Trooper, Jyn Erso and Death Trooper in the wild...
