Title: Legacy Wave 1 - Return of the Jedi
Post by: Scott on February 5, 2008, 02:15 PM
Let the rumor mill begin...from

http://potf2.com/potj/forums/topic.asp?TOPIC_ID=12897

Darth Vader with multi piece helmet
ROTJ Han Solo (CUT SCENE) w/ desert headscarf
ROTJ Luke Skywalker (CUT SCENE) w/ headscarf
ROTJ Chewie (CUT SCENE) w/desert leg wraps
Ewok 2-pack (Leektar & Nippet the Wokling)
Ak-Rev with drum
Yarna D'al Gargan
Bane Malar

We'll find out in a few weeks I guess

There is at least a kernel of truth in that list.  Ak-Rev got confirmed the Hasbro Q&A's.

Post by: Brian on February 5, 2008, 02:31 PM
Interesting list.  I could see it, I guess, although the "cut scene" figures are a little surprising.  I guess its a "new" way to put main characters out there again though.  Ak-Rev has been confirmed, as mentioned, and I'm pretty sure we've heard a fair amount about another Ewok 2 pack as well.  Hopefully we'll see some of this, or other future waves, at Toy Fair.  I could stand to see some OT offerings :).

One can only assume that the 'cut scene' concept will be this year's 'McQuarrie.'

ROTJ Han Solo (CUT SCENE) w/ desert headscarf
ROTJ Luke Skywalker (CUT SCENE) w/ headscarf
ROTJ Chewie (CUT SCENE) w/desert leg wraps

I wonder if this means that scene is getting put back in the movie at some point?  :D

It's always cool in my book when we get a new movie (sort of) version of Han. 

I hope Han & Luke both come with the sandstorm goggles too.  :)

i really hope this means were set to be staring down the gun at a ultra boxed saga edtion set with deleted scenes this fall.

but concerning: Bane Malar

i know there is a bigger following of the cantina background guys and jabbas palace background guys than there are in the entire 501st

anyways, my point is who the hell is this guy? and which frame do we blink and miss him in? i'm fairly certain there are any number of figures they could have made rather than this guy!

as far as the rest of this proposed wave which will most likely be as big a torture as the 2-d clone wars wave has become. i predict: repack of saga collection han solo sans carbonite block,repack of tac's luke skywalker sans bone,and maybe a new leia.

i personally feel retarded for having not seen this wave coming, i mean after a super articulated figure of biggs from his deleted scenes, anythings fair game now.

Its funny that, although many fans are aware of some of these OT cutscenes, we've never gotten them on any of the DVD releases.  Definitely makes for some obscure figures, but they could be cool.

PLEASE LET THIS BE TRUE! PLEASE LET THIS BE TRUE!  ;D

3 on that list have been on my most wanted list and the cut scene concept i enjoy very much. If it ends up being true, i hope they give us a few more like Camie and Fixer.

I'm fairly sure the answer to the question is: He doesn't exist

There are two Sgt Doallyn's in ROTJ (the one in the Palace getting pushed down the stairs and the skiff guard).  I've read somewhere that Malar is a Decipher creation and was taken/photoshopped from a costume fitting picture

Not so sure about that.  I'm pretty sure that I saw a Jabba's palace cast photo, with actors in costume posed with Jabba.  And one of the costumed actors was in the Bane Malar costume.

Bane Malar does look a bit like Sgt. Doallyn.  The helmets are definitely similar.  But Malar's costume is a dark blue, while Doallyn's is a light grey or tan.

I'll eventually get these, but I can't see them being HTF. If they are and I miss them, I don't think I'll lose sleep...

Oh except the wokling. I"ve wanted that one for awhile now. It's at least IN the movie clearly and not cut from it.

Sheesh.  Don't any of you guys use Google?!  :P

From Wookieepedia.com (http://starwars.wikia.com/wiki/Bane_Malar):

Quote
Bane Malar was a mysterious bounty hunter and infrequent guest of Jabba the Hutt's Palace. At the palace, his presence was a great mystery to its residents. Few knew even his name, and his species was unknown; rumors circulated that he was telepathic. As many of Jabba's entourage and employees, Bane Malar plotted to murder the large crime boss.

(http://images.wikia.com/starwars/images/9/91/Bane-malar.jpg) (http://i15.ebayimg.com/05/i/000/d7/27/5f95_1.JPG) (CCG card on eBay) (http://cgi.ebay.com/Star-Wars-CCG-Bane-Malar-Foil_W0QQitemZ190195754336QQcmdZViewItem?IMSfp=TL0802030850a5972)

Cool character, but I'd MUCH rather be getting the more popular and far more requested Sgt. Doaylln instead.  I'm stoked to finally be getting a Yarna though.  She's been #1 on my wants list for a good several years now.  'Bout time!  Completing the drum set with Ak-Rev is a big plus too.  I don't really care much about the sandstorm figures, but if they do them just right (goggles, windblown sculpt, etc.) they may be pretty cool.  Ewoks suck in general, but getting a couple more of them to fill out their sucky army is nice, I guess.  Now make us a new Ewok Village to stick 'em all in and I'll be happy.

Finally, Yarna! Interesting list, though the only brand-name characters are from cut scenes besides Vader. Will be interesting to see how well Vader is done.

Colman...a Decipher card is now Canon?

The guy getting pushed down the stairs has a Doallyn helmet on...the only spot he may be is in the group shots after Han is unfrozen
Title: Re: 2008 Wave 4 - ROTJ?
Post by: Darth Depressis on February 5, 2008, 04:04 PM
i find myself wondering if this Darth Vader will be a uber kitbash of all votc variants, personally i can imagine picking it up if its the evolutions head,new mask(as mentioned in its description),ball-jointed shoulders that have been well thought out for multiple poses,and maybe some signs of having actually lost a duel to his son. plus interchangeable hands or arms to display the arching cords.

so how happy are the jabba palace guys about this?  i hope their pleased.

because upon taking another look at this rumored list on rebelscum's main page, it looks to me like this entire wave was based around pleasing the yarna crowd. not that it's a bad thing, if anything I'd really like to hear hasbro explain away the market research that led to making her?  thus continuing their sad game of lying to themselves about who there main market is: us. the collectors.

Huh?  I certainly wasn't suggesting CCG cards were canon.  I was just putting it up there for visual reference since folks weren't sure who Malar was (including me).  I definitely realize he's got a slightly similar helmet to Doaylln, but figured they were probably two different characters based on the jump suit colors (and Hasbro's history of giving us slightly different characters than the ones we're requesting).

Are you suggesting that "Malar" might actually be Doaylln?  If so, that'd be cool, as long as they get his jump suit color looking closer to what we briefly see on film there, and tweak his helmet a bit more.  If that's not what you meant, I'm not sure what you're saying...?  ???

Oh.  Well, duh.  I completely agree with that.  I didn't mean to suggest that he was.  Just some pictorial reference material was all.  :-*

But yeah, if someone could find Waldo Malar in a Jabba's Palace background shot, that'd definitely be great, so we wouldn't have to refer to him as "EU"...
Title: Re: 2008 Wave 4 - ROTJ?
Post by: Jesse James on February 5, 2008, 04:47 PM
Interesting wave...  Not as nice as the Clone Wars wave for "demanded" figures, but it's different...

Vader with multi-piece helmet in particular sounds neat.  It sounds to me like all these removable helmet Vaders are going to become obsolete perhaps.  I like the idea, I just hope the execution is done well.  The McQuarrie Rebel's helmet has sculpting inside that almost mimics Vaders, so I'm curious if that was sort of an inspiration to try this.

The 3 Cut Scene figures are out of left field...  I didn't really know anyone wanted them.  I'll take them, but I'm not personally hoping for scene-specific sculpts.  It could deliver a nice Han Solo from the Barge fight that has a nice set of accessories (I hope).  The Luke I almost expect to be a reworking of the 2007 Luke from JP, and the Chewbacca is just odd.  Can't say I've seen a good photo of him from that scene, however I have a real good one of Han/Luke and I'd say they're neat, but not figures I was really anxious for.

The Ewok 2-pack is ok...  I'm more an Ewok Warrior fan than woklings and the like, so I'm not excited for it like I was for the 2-pack this past year.

Ak-Rev was expected at some point...

Yarna...  I've said it before and I'll say it again, I really don't care about this figure or the other dancers enough to be into her as a figure.  I prefer the guards and things to the dancers I guess.  Just not my cup of tea.  Much rather have Wilrow. ;)

Bane Malar...  I was always in the camp with Scott on this, that the guy knocked down the stairs was Doallyn, as was the guy on the skiff, he just changed clothes.  Kind of like Skiff/Palace Klaatu were considered many moons ago (though, if you watch close, they're actually two different guys since they're both at the Barge battle).  But Bane I'm not totally convinced he exists.  I have a good capture of a cut angle from the sequence where he's tossed down the stairs.  The shot of the Malar guy isn't the greatest, but it gives the impression that there's only one hose going around the helmet, nothing "light" in color (ala silver) on the helmet, etc.  It also seems wider in the back, ala Doallyn's helmet.  It just strikes me as a different looking (somewhat at least) guy than the pictures of Bane on the CCG and such.

I know the group shot of Jabba's goons though, just have to find where it is to see if they're both in there somewhere or not.

It's an ok wave overall though, just not my favorite by far.

Post by: Darth Broem on February 5, 2008, 08:08 PM
If the wave comes to pass here is what I will buy and won't and why. 

1) Yarna - I like the Jabba's Palace scenes and she is in the background quite a bit.  She almost made the vintage line.  There is such a big ass debate over her it will be nice to have it in my collection. 

2) Ewoks - I have always wanted the baby ewok for some reason.  Not a priority of course but I'll probably by the pack for the baby ewok.  There are only a couple other Ewoks I'd like to see from the vintage line and I'm done with those.

3)  Desert Scene Characters - Eh, I probably won't get any of them.  I know it's a deleted scene.  I am just not that excited about them really. 

4) Vader - I probably won't buy another Vader for awhile. 

5) Ak-Rev - Buy it for the drum and another addition to the Palace diorama. 

On a side note.  Yeah it would have been better to get a vintage Klaatu, Skiff Weequay, Weequay resculpt, etc.

Just what I need in my collection...another Vader and yet another Chewie, but this one is special because he comes with leg warmers wraps.

I guess it depends on what a person wants out of the wave...  I would have said the same thing if the list was comprised of Palace Klaatu, DS2 Luke, soft goods Emperor, and B-Wing pilot among others.

Hey - I've always wondered this - Chewie does get shot on the skiff - he falls over on top of Han. Han even says "Chewie are you alright?"

Since wrapping just his legs isn't exactly going to keep the sand out of his fur, are they to keep the sand out of his wounds? Heck - from the picture, it looks like it might even only be his left leg that is wrapped up.

Always wondered why GL didn't put this scene back into the SE of ROTJ.

The vintage appeal alone is enough to put her pretty much at the top of my list.  The custom vintage one I have is one of my favorite pieces in the collection.  I'd like nothing more than to have Hasbro do a high quality modern version.

You learn something new everyday.  :)

I was curious to see for myself so I went back and checked my DVD. Chewie does indeed get a little boo-boo on the inside of his left knee. This shot comes imediately after he gets hit:

I'd have to agree with that Scott. I did a quick run through on my DVD and didn't see Malar anywhere in the palace or on the sail barge. I suppose it is possible I just missed him, but he certainly didn't standout anywhere.

There are however, two guys wearing Doallyn type helmets

(http://www.starwars.jp/databank/character/image/sergeant_doallyn.jpg)

The light colored jumpsuit guy on the skiff and the dark colored jumpsuit guy getting pushed down the stairs.


Maybe someone can get some screen caps? :-*

 :-*

Doallyn getting pushed down the stairs:
(I had a hard time getting a decent screenshot here. The camera is moving fairly quickly and it is dark so, they were coming out blury. This one is slightly brightened in PS. It is however clear that he is wearing dark colored clothing. This is the guy that everybody has always called Doallyn.)

(http://www.jedidefender.com/rphipps/Screen_Caps_beta/Sgt_Doaylln.jpg)

And then there is the guy:

(http://www.starwars.jp/databank/character/image/sergeant_doallyn.jpg) (http://www.jedidefender.com/rphipps/Screen_Caps_beta/LightSgtDoaylln.jpg) (http://www.jedidefender.com/rphipps/Screen_Caps_beta/LightSgtDoaylln2.jpg)

This guy is riding shotgun on Skiff #2 and is the first person from that skiff that Luke knocks into the pit. He is either a second guy wearing the same kind of helmet, or the same guy with a change of clothes. It could be either one I suppose as the first Doallyn doesn't appear anywhere on the skiffs or the barge, not that I have seen anyways. Likewise the guy with the tan suit didn't seem to be in the palace at all.

I went frame by frame through that shot of the guy getting knocked down the stairs.  I couldn't say that was Doallyn or Bane Malar with a good level of certainty.  I looked at the helmet using the zoom feature on my DVD player, and I couldn't conclusively say it was either Doallyn or Bane Malar.  The shot was just too dark.  But it is pretty clear that Doallyn is on the second Skiff at the Sarlacc pit.

Really hard to tell...although I seem to remember you can actually see the knocked down the steps Doallyn's helmet rather well in the movie.  Thanks Ryan

Look at the photo on the left though...  It's only got one hose, compared to the one on the right.  ALso note that the hose is further out on the left helmet, whereas the two hoses on the right picture's helmet are closely wrapped to the helmet itself.  You can't make out the details on the face, but the hoses really imply, to me, that the guy in the Palace has a helmet more like Sgt. Doallyn's helmet.

Everyone else I'm pretty bummed they're making, especially Yarna.

I second that, not sure how anyone cannot be excited about a figure that almost made it into the vintage line.

Almost is the key word. It didn't, so I can pretend it didn't happen... because it didn't.  ;)

That and I'd so much rather have a couple of more skiff guards rather than dancers or musicians. There are at least two other Weequys in the film are actually exciting and that we've all been waiting for since... forever. And here we get the musician from an added seen that didn't work well.

I'd be most excited to see her out of all the characters rumored. Although I do wish that instead of the Luke, Han, and Chewie from the cut scene they had made two new skiff guards (Weequay and Nikto) and a new Oola or Lyn Me.

To be honest, I get less and less excited over OT stuff these days... been that way since 2002 I think...  I don't know why that is, I guess since I've been exposed to the OT for 30 years now, and in my area OT stuff pegwarms much longer than PT stuff. 

The only things that have really excited me OT related the past few years are:

- White TIEs with big wings
- TAC Hermie Odle
- SAGA2 Hammerhead
- Target Hoth Battle Pack
- Tantive IV Stormtroopers
- VOTC stuff

Looking forward, about only thing I'm that intererested right now would be:

- playsets, done right
- awesome Jabba and his dais
- awesome Slave Leia
- awesome Emperor Palpatine
- awesome Gamorrean Guard
- rumored $150 Falcon

I'm excited for Yarna primarily because she's so recognizable, and an easy fit for a diorama.  I'd love a new Weequay too, though, but I'd take Yarna first since she's never been made (I'm thinking of the Skiff Weequays, at least- while I'd buy a palace Weequay, he'd be less recognizable to me).  The choice of cut scene sandstorm heroes does seem puzzling to me though; I'd rather they re-release VOTC Chewie again on a regular card (heck, Early Bird Chewie too), and sculpt us a DS2 Luke and some other Han.  They can't be running out of ideas yet, just in resculpts alone we could have multiple years of waves...

Yarna's got a knife. Wonder how she would've fared against the Rancor...

Cut scene guys look articulated anyway, but what is the love with windswept hair sculpts these days? I think I will pass on all three.

And the Astromech is EU? Wow, with all the movie accurate ones yet to be made, I'm surprised they tooled this up. Again, not getting the whole wave, so I'll just take the head and legs or whatever come with Ewok, Malar, and Yarna, and not have to worry about hunting the rest down on eBay.

Post by: Jesse James on February 16, 2008, 01:40 PM
Looks like the rumors are holding true so far...  I'm anxious to see what other astro or protocol droids are in store...

The windswept hair I can tolerate because of the sequence, but it does limit them.

Yarna's pretty incredible looking, and don't be surprised if Bane Malar has a removable helmet...  Our rumor report didn't mention it, but it was mentioned to us that he MIGHT have that feature, but not entirely sure.  I can't tell by his picture there myself.

Great wave, if not filled with some oddities (cut sequence)... 

Love the build-a-figure they pictured though and can't wait to see more on that.  Almost makes the price hike tollerable.

Its great to see nice pics of these, and the whole wave looks pretty good overall.  The build-a-droid thing looks like it will be a pretty nice "bonus/pack-in".  There will sure be an army of white on the pegs next year between Clone Wars and the Legacy line, but they don't look too bad.  They'll definitely stand out in the aisle I would think.
Title: Re: Legacy Wave 1 - Return of the Jedi
Post by: Pete_Fett on February 16, 2008, 10:23 PM
Hey - did Hasbro indicate that the Legacy Collection figures will come with bases too? Or because there is a piece of a droid with each figure, that's considered the pack-in and we're back to not getting bases again with the figures.

If that ends up being the case, I hope that Hasbro decides to continue to offer boxes of bases, but instead of having it be a mix of all movies and two EU bases, I think they need to start making bases that are solid for each movie. So you get the "Empire Strikes Back" figure stand set and in that set it comes with labels that are all characters from ESB, etc... This way, folks could get a box of all EU bases which will certainly come in handy with giving bases to all of the Comic 2-pack figures, EU figures in the Evolutions sets and bases to EU-inspired figures in the regular line.

Title: Re: Legacy Wave 1 - Return of the Jedi
Post by: Kendo Benobi on February 17, 2008, 10:22 AM
I have to admit that I am very excited about this wave. I mean come on... Yarna Dal Gargan! Here's something to consider about this wave and the direction Hasbro is taking. Although there is a lot hype over the animated Clone Wars, you have to believe that Hasbro's SW team is concerned about collectors like me and I imagine the majority of the contributors to this forum who've helped carry the line through non-movie years. I am older (not going to say how old) and I've been collecting Star Wars since Hammerhead was known as Hammerhead.

Frankly, I am undecided about the Clone Wars. I will see the movie and watch the show but I simply don't like the animated style figures. I passed on the cartoon Clone Wars figures a few years ago. I suspect Hasbro knows this and realizes that Clone Wars is going to appeal to a younger, probably newer audience. So, how better to appease their collector base than to release a figure like Yarna that up until now was deemed inappropriate as an action figure for "children" (that came from Lucasfilm). I'd like to think a deal was cut to get her into the wave.

At any rate, I don't know about the rest of you but I am excited at the possibility that the Clone Wars is going to mean a greater emphasis on getting collector wishlist figures into the Legacy Collection. Only 16 of the 30 Legacy Collection have been revealed between the ROTJ and CW waves. That leaves 14 to go (and three build a droids). I think Hasbro jumped the gun in a Q&A last fall when they said there'd be a wave for all movies except TPM in 2008. I don't know how they are going to do this with only 14 figures left and in their Toyfare presentation they revealed they are grouped in waves of 8 for the astromechs and 6 for the protocol droid. 8 + 6 = 14 which is two waves to fit in ANH, TESB and ATOC. ROTS is out now. Anyone have thoughts on this?
Title: Re: Legacy Wave 1 - Return of the Jedi
Post by: Jesse James on February 17, 2008, 10:32 AM
My thought is things may have gotten jumbled and moved around to where one movie's getting pushed to 2009...  Not unheard of for sure, so it's anyone's guess.

Has anyone managed to get a clear shot of Luke's belt to confirm or deny its ability to be used as (finally) a SA Death Star Duel version?  Everything I've seen has someone standing in front of him, or the lightsaber is held at an angle that obscures his waist.

I'm really curious as to the reasoning behind releasing figures from the Sandstorm deleted scene, since I can't think of many people outside of LFL who have actually seen it.  At least the Anchorhead Biggs scene was included on a CD-ROM in the late 1990's, and while many have seen photos of the Sandstorm scene (along with that brief little clip in the "Revenge of the Jedi" trailer), I am wondering if, now that the Blu-Ray/HD-DVD war seems to be won, that "ultimate" box set of the entire saga is on its way sooner rather than later?

Is this wave due for July also?  Being the first wave of TLC, and one of the precious few OT waves, I'm getting multiples of a few of the figures.  I'll need 2 Yarnas, one for a Jabba band dio I made and for the general throne room scene; about 3 ewok sets in order to customize 2 of them into other characters, 2 of the Jabba's goon, and at least 2 of the sandstorm heroes to use them for both a deleted scene... umm, scene, and as non-cloaked versions for the skiff.  I like the wind-blown hair sculpt in this case, since they're fairly scene-specific outfits.

I don't know take off the helmet off the guy in black throw on a neck peg and head and it might make a fairly non-specific trooper/guerilla.  I've been thinking about using the helmet there as a space helmet w/that little thing on the top being a light and connecting some tubes to his grill and a backpack tank, or rebreather.  He's the only army builder for me w/Han being custom fodder for a Bespin Han and Endor Han-just didn't like the waist artic. on the VTAC and a skiff version.

Yes, they are in the DPCI thread (http://www.jedidefender.com/yabbse/index.php?topic=10562.0) (which should probably be moved over here before 7/26  :P).

Awesome wave. The Drummer and the main characters aren't exactly making me excited but I'll pick them up (good articulation on the mains, BAD parts for the Drummer, I'll probably sell him off). Bane will fit in nice with other bounty hunters, or like Chewie said as rogue bodyguards or soldiers. One can hope that the Vader uses the VOTC legs since that will make him tall.

I also vow that after this I will NEVER buy another OT Vader again. I have the VOTC, Evolutions, and soon this double helmet version. There is no need for another. Keep shipping this one out, Hasbro, whenever you want to put Vader in a wave.

Also, anyone else think that Chewie would make a nice Hoth Chewie if they added some snowflakes?

Love the rifle too!  Looks to be a modified AK-47 assault rifle with a scope, much like Han's pistol was modified after a German mauser.

I don't know take off the helmet off the guy in black throw on a neck peg and head and it might make a fairly non-specific trooper/guerilla.  I've been thinking about using the helmet there as a space helmet w/that little thing on the top being a light and connecting some tubes to his grill and a backpack tank, or rebreather.  He's the only army builder for me w/Han being custom fodder for a Bespin Han and Endor Han-just didn't like the waist artic. on the VTAC and a skiff version.

Hey Chewie I'm kind of on the same boat with you, but going Rebels since H seems to be holding out on actual "soldiers"-damn Pilot Evolutions

Some new photos cropped up...

Check out the front page (http://www.jedidefender.com/newspro/fullnews.cgi?newsid1214125159,92733,) to see loose pics of Han (Sandstorm), Chewbacca (Sandstorm), and Yarna...  Chewie and Han look like they were pretty inexpensive for Hasbro to crank out.  Perhaps they're the kind of figure that got us Yarna.  "Just new enough", but re-using a ton of parts.  Han's torso is still sorta goofy looking though to me.  :-\

Han doesn't look like the one we've been seeing, this just looks like the VTSC version.
Title: Re: Legacy Wave 1 - Return of the Jedi
Post by: Jesse James on June 23, 2008, 10:29 PM
It is...  Notice the torso articulation and the unpainted shirt underneath.  Not sure what's up there...  I can't recall the original photos but I thought it looked like VTSC Han to me at the time.  I could be wrong as I didn't really exam the figure closely.  They had basically 2 options to go with on this one, and neither was too swift (if they were insisting on re-using an existing body).  Saga Carbo and VTSC Endor Han neither one are "perfect" by any means.

Looking at Han's torso there...  Definitely looks different to me too.  Wonder what the actual toy is going to wind up looking like.  The figure photo we posted the other day has all the accessories and all, so I'd guess that's what we're going to get, but the figure in our Toy Fair photo looks significantly different (and better) IMO.
Title: Re: Legacy Wave 1 - Return of the Jedi
Post by: speedermike on June 24, 2008, 12:04 AM
I really think Han looks odd because the botttem part of the shirt is unpainted, as stated above.  The belt looks odd, and will only look decent with the gun placed into it.  Not my favorite Han.
Title: Re: Legacy Wave 1 - Return of the Jedi
Post by: Daigo-Bah on June 24, 2008, 01:12 AM
Yeah, this Han is not among the best.  While the face sculpt resembles Harrison, it looks a bit like the Holiday Special cartoon caricature of Han.  I plan on getting one to replace the one on my skiff, but I'm not in love with this one  :-\
Title: Re: Legacy Wave 1 - Return of the Jedi
Post by: Diddly on June 24, 2008, 03:13 AM
I was REALLY hoping the Han had a new body, but nope... Hasbro had to go and reuse the crappy VTSC body with the beefy torso and bird legs. I'll wait and see what it looks like in person before I make a purchasing decision.
Title: Re: Legacy Wave 1 - Return of the Jedi
Post by: Jesse James on June 24, 2008, 03:43 AM
I'm a tad disappointed too, if this is how it turns out.  It's a very "specific" figure to me though, so I guess to that end I won't be too upset.  Still it's an odd body style.  I think they needed a new figure...  Endor Han's clearly a Han that could be updated, and I dont' think anyone would mind picking it up again.

Thanks for posting that other shot Jesse for a comparison, I'll really be disappointed if they reuse th VTSC body on this one.  I was planning on getting 3 of the other bodies to repace my VTSC versions and custom a Bespin, now uh-uh I'll trade for the driod part.

Post by: Scott on July 26, 2008, 12:25 PM
Wow...I cracked open these babies and I am thouroughly impressed

Yarna...I picked through the pegs and found the best paint...she's pale, flabby and beautiful.  The knee articulation wasn't necessary IMO and detracts from the figure overall but its still great to finally get her

Bane...he's tiny, really tiny and it surprised me, still a great figure and almost spot on to the source material.  This figure still is a head scratcher as far as why since he is pretty much not in the movie but it is still a well done figure

Ak Rev...The preposed legs suck ass, the rest is beautiful, I love how colorful he is and the paint apps are great!  Good to complete the band!

Darth...Great two piece helmet, the rest, its Vader

Han...Don't like how white his shirt is, the rest is good and well done, I'll display with goggles.  Is this a new blaster as well??

Chewie...Least favorite of the wave, the flying fur doesn't look too hot IMO

Luke...Wow!  This guy is probably my favorite and hopefully when they release a flap down DSII Luke they use the same head peg for a non-windswept look and interchangeable heads.  The outfit, the articulation, everything is phenomenal!!!! 

Ewoks...Also great to add to the Ewok army and keep bringing them on, Hasbro!

Droids...I love this concept and they work great.  I don't care for the extra leg holes they put on the body but meh...the kids will probably like them.

With this and the ANH Wave they showed yesterday I have high faith in the ESB next year will be just as awesome.  It sort of tempers the dissapointment in the year (2 ROTS Waves, a repaint Wave and 2 EU Waves :-\)

Post by: Reid on July 26, 2008, 07:18 PM
Picked up a couple figures from this wave at Wally World this morning.

Yarna- Much better than I was expecting, she's actually really great! Very accurate sculpt, surprising amount of articulation, and neat accesories. The knife and sheath is a nice touch. Overall, one of my favorite Legacy figures.

Leektar & Nippet- Always good to get more 'Woks, and I'm so glad we finally have a Wokling. Now, how about a female Ewok Hasbro?
Title: Re: Legacy Wave 1 - Return of the Jedi
Post by: David on July 26, 2008, 08:17 PM
Made a special trip to Target today for a few of these, because the entire wave was absent from Midnight Madness. ???

Yarna- Love the details, the extra accessory, the articulation, the likeness...it's an awesome figure. I'm so thrilled we finally got a Yarna figure and that it turned out so great.

Bane Malar- He's nice. There's really nothing wrong about him that I can find, other than he's a little tiny. I like him, and probably would've liked him a little more if Wave 2 and Yarna hadn't stolen his thunder.

Ak-Rev- Blech. The pre-posed legs suck, but hey, what else does he even do in the movie besides drum? He's very colorful and looks great, and he's still a nice addition to the Jabba's Palace freaks.

I dunno if I'll even bother going after the other figures in this wave, there's not much exciting stuff here other than these three. Maybe Luke and the Wokling, but that'll probably be it.
Title: Re: Legacy Wave 1 - Return of the Jedi
Post by: Reid on July 27, 2008, 10:14 PM
Ak-Rev- Nice addition to Jabba's Band, although I agree that the preposed legs are a letdown. Also, I think they should've reused Sora Bulq's headsculpt, as it's much crisper than this one. But, he has an overall good sculpt, and his accesories rock. He's probably my least favorite Legacy figure I've bought so far, but he's still a good one.

Post by: Rob on July 28, 2008, 12:46 AM
The only thing I don't like about Bane Malar (and it's my gripe about lots of the new pilots, and lots of other figures like the Yavin Honor Guard) is the wide stance of the legs.  Unless they're modeling them after Larry Craig, I don't get the rationale behind it. 
Title: Re: Legacy Wave 1 - Return of the Jedi
Post by: Jesse James on July 28, 2008, 03:40 AM
I picked up a couple of this wave today.  I need Han, Chewie, Vader, and Ewoks... 

-Luke...  Outstanding figure overall.  Maybe the best Luke likeness in ages too I think.  But really, just a great Luke figure and makes one look forward to a Death Star Duel Luke soon. 

-Yarna...  I never cared much for her but the figure's nice.  The paintjob's acceptable to me and I like the knife a lot.  The knee joints are made useless by the skirt so I'm a little bummed they didn't try softgoods but ultimately I wasn't interested in her really anyway so I'm happy with her as-is.

-Bane Malar...  he wasn't in the film so I find him odd, but great.  Scott mentions his height and I too was shocked how short he is.  Dinky...  The gear is cool.  Removable bandoleirs would've been better though.  His holster is crossdraw and that rocks.  Sure it's a small detail but I dig the looks of a cross draw holster.  The new rifle is outstanding, and the pistol is also new (compare it to the last one, it's new) and more accurate.  Articulation, spot on...  Great job on this one, even if it is really just EU.

-Ak Rev...  My biggest disappointment.  I hate pre-posed figures...  Always have, always will, and this one's HORRIBLY pre-posed.  Makes him about as useful as the dancers from the 3-pack, and that's disappointing.  It's not like the accessory cost Hasbro in tooling it up and things.  It's disappointing they didn't at least give him normal pose unarticulated legs or something.  He's basically an accessory himself now, to me, so I'm disappointed in him.

That's all I have right now...

Gotta track down CHewie, Han, Ewoks, and Vader (who I've seen, just didn't buy yet). 

Oh and I love the droids.  They're like crack.  Building them makes opening a whole wave so much more fun for some lame reason.  I'm already getting this weird giddy high of building a droid after a wave is opened up.  Anyone else?

Post by: Darth_Anton on July 28, 2008, 09:33 AM
Popped open the first half of this wave yesterday - (Han was opened previously,) Luke, Chewie and the Ewoks.

Luke - pretty decent figure, best "final duel" one produced yet, but still a tad skinny.

Chewie - really good. For some reason I missed that his hair had a "blown" look and was impressed when I opened it.

Ewoks - very cute, nicely done.

R4 - very decent. Almost dark enough to make it an Imperial.

Ewoks - very cute, nicely done.

I like the Ewoks as much as the next guy, but I'm starting to get worried about the frequency with which they're using this mold to crank out more and more of them.  I want them to keep getting made, but they shouldn't all be the same bear with a new coat of paint and headdress.

The new ewok is the same mold as the 30thAC ewoks (both were).  And that Comic Pack with 3 Ewoks all appear to use the same sculpt as well.

He doesn't appear in the movie at all?  I always thought he was in there for a few frames.

I popped open the back half of this wave and simple put, it's cool.

Ak Rev - Nicely sculpted, glad I never bought 2 of the other guy to complete the drum.

Yarna - despite this figure being low on my wants list, she came out very well.

Bane - just a very cool figure.

Vader - the 2 piece helmet gag is cool, but it's kind of cheesy that that's all that new. This seems more like a pack in figure.

R7 - It's another droid, there was much rejoicing.

I think it depends slightly on your POV...  Some people are saying he is the guy pushed down the stairs by Boussh and Chewbacca.  However if you look close, the helmet on the guy in that scene is 100% not Bane Malar's helmet, but rather it appears (at least to me, as near as I can tell) to be "Sgt. Doallyn's" helmet...  Who gets offed at the Sarlacc Pit in a grey-ish colored jumpsuit. 

Some people think the guy pushed down the stairs is Doallyn in just another different colored outfit.  Honestly I can't tell at this point, but to me the guy pushed down the stairs is not Bane Malar, as the helmets aren't a match and that's the only thing I can see clearly in the scene.  I don't see the bandoleirs, or even the color of the jumpsuit clear enough.  It looks black to me, not that dark blue, but that's probably a whole other debate too.

The guy shoved down the stairs also isn't particularly short it seems, not that he's tall either.  But Malar's dinky, even compared to generally smaller characters/figures (Padme for instance).
Title: Re: Legacy Wave 1 - Return of the Jedi

Post by: Scott on August 2, 2008, 08:38 PM
From Decipher (where many, many OT characters have come from and were named)

Anyhoo...here is what Hasbro had to say about Bane

Rebelscum: Who is Bane Malar? We ask the question rhetorically, as we'd like to hear Hasbro's take on the figure. Best as most of us can tell, he's a photoshopped character from the Decipher Star Wars Customizable Card Game. From what we can see he's not visible in the film, and while he's easily confused with the character that gets thrown down the stairs when Boushh brings Chewie in for the bounty, the EU has established that character as Sgt. Doallyn. Stills from the film bare out that there are differences in the helmets between Decipher's Bane, the character that gets thrown down the stairs, and then Decipher's Doallyn, which they have incorrectly labeled as Skiff Guard from the Carkoon sequence - with yet another, albeit similar helmet.

Can you help illustrate the process by which a character like this gets chosen, and perhaps tell us what the bio on the card back will read? While the figure looks great, it is one of the more "confusing" choices out there, and we'd LOVE to hear YOUR take on the Malar/Doallyn confusion.

Hasbro: Bane Malor is a character drawn from Lucasfilm archive reference material to which we have access. We double checked with Lucasfilm just to make sure, and indeed he is in on-set photos, but whether he actually made any background scenes has yet to be determined. He is without a doubt a different character from Sgt. Doallyn. Malor was actually brought to our attention during a past Q&A session, and became part of the "parking lot" that we regularly draw from when creating waves for a specific movie. At the time we selected him, we assumed he was on screen somewhere and was interesting to us, our own team favorite pick to complement Yarna (who is a deliberate nod to the fans). While it'll be a little wait before we actually do Doallyn, he is definitely on the short list for the next time we plan plan for a RotJ wave.

Finally got around to cracking the other half of wave open today. Note that I haven't bought Ak-Rev yet due to its preposed nature.

Luke - Best figure of the wave, my only complaint is that you can't make him look down due to a thick Adam's Apple/chin sculpt. Other than that, everything is perfect and I hope they reuse this body for the DSII Duel Luke. Oh, and I hope they give him his actual ROTJ saber and not a green AOTC Kenobi saber. ;)

Yarna - My second favorite of the wave, just beautiful other than a few small paint flaws on the "tube top" and stomach areas. She'll look great with the rest of the Jabba crew.

Chewie - Good figure, nothing special though. Could have been much, much worse.

Ewoks - Again, a good figure(s?) but nothing extraordinary, they're Ewoks and are always welcome.

Vader - I think it's an awesome figure, they really made the removable helmet work flawlessly. Maybe it's because I was expecting a crappy execution, but I really like this figure, and will (hopefully) never have to buy another Vader ever again.

Bane - He's alright, a little too small but he looks cool as some kind of terrorist/hired gun. I might buy another for that reason alone.

Han - Awful, the VTSC body sucks and the packaging warped the legs on mine so it's even more useless. The head is slightly too big for the neck peg and thus comes off easily. It also looks like Dustin Hoffman and not Harrison Ford.

As some might know, I'm a stickler for the proper matching of lightsabers to their proper wielders and this one dissappoints two-fold in that regard. It not only includes a green version of OBK's ROTS/ANH saber and hilt, but back at Toyfair (http://www.rebelscum.com/tf2008/hasbro/TLC/image3.asp), it was shown with the proper accessories and they were just available with the TAC Jedi Knight Luke. (http://www.yakface.com/TGuide2004/html/tac/25.html)

But the errors don't stop there. On all the TLC Lukes I've seen, the belt is on upside-down so the hilt is on the wrong side.

Not the worst figure in the wave, but defintely not the best IMHO.

The weird thing about the belt is that the clip is on the wrong side, but the actual hole to attach the hilt is on the correct side, as are the two "buttons" next to the buckle on the right side.

Really? All the in hand pics I've seen, the clip and hilt are on what would be Luke's right hip (the same side as his gloved hand) - which would be wrong.

I just love how the DESERT STORM deleted scene figures are pretty clean. You would think they should have some weathering on them to show they are in a storm. That is just about my only problem with this wave though. chewie is still my favourite from the wave BUT I would have prefered at least some sign of weathering.

Weathering, or lack there of, seems to be the the major issue with almost all of Hasbro's Stuff lately. :P

Except for the Clone Wars figures... they've got weathering in spades.  ;)

Funfact: Yarna's head and Bane's head have the same size ball joint. You can stick Yarna's head on Bane's body to make an interesting looking custom.

Proof of too much free time: Exhibit A.

I picked up another TLC Luke today (the one on the right) and there is definitely a difference between the 2 I have - note the belts:

Are any of your figures First Day Of Issue Jayson? My Luke is, and his has the upside down belt you mentioned (which I honestly didn't notice or care about until you mentioned it). I'm wondering if the "regular" figures have the corrected belt while FDOI don't. Looks like I'll have to try and track down one of these corrected versions.

That would be me!  I have a FDOI upside down belt like Jay mentioned and a non FDOI Luke with the corrected hip on the right.

I popped my Luke apart to fix the problem, looks much better. Good call on that, that bothered me how it sat too high on his waist.

Variation hunters beware, I found some wave 1 figures today that had the "blue eye" Stormtrooper cards.

Sorry for the bad quality, I had to snap the pic with my camera phone, but there were some Ewoks, a Bane, and a Vader behind the Luke and Han pictured that also had the blue eyed cardbacks.

So glad this is my last year of collecting carded - gave up on variants the end of last year so this is an obvious pass.

Even though it's not "movie accurate", I wish these would have hit retail first as I really like the look. Sure makes them "pop" more on the pegs.

Noticed another card change. I just acquired an Ak-Rev figure today and the bottom portion on the back of the card has changed. It now has robotic arms that are holding the "Droid Factory" logo and another one next to the row of figures.

Anyone else notice this?

This is a non-FDOI, non-blue lens card

And yet, some out there are going to get every card variant.

I don't know what the situation is in your neck of the woods, guys, but around here, the entire ROTJ wave is nowhere to be found.  That includes the fat lady (Yarna).

Picked up the Chewbacca from this wave a few days ago. It was an essential purchase for me, as I didn't have a movie Chewie in my collection. Pretty nice figure, the "sandstorm" headsculpt would work well for a future Hoth Chewbacca.

Pretty much both Legacy waves 1 & 2 are scarce in my area. That stinks, as I still want a Bane, and half the figures from wave 2.

Wave one is not impossible to get around here. To get the Greatest Hits figure, you have to stay on top of hitting stores regularly, but I would guess that if one would hit all the stores in my area, Target, WM, TRU, KB, that one would find all of wave one.
