Title: Legacy Wave 4 - Revenge of the Sith
Post by: Jeff on March 20, 2008, 09:37 PM
Since this wave has been confirmed in a few places in the Q&As, let the speculation begin... :)

Here's what I'm hoping for:
- Coruscant Gray #41 repaint
- Queen of Alderaan
- Padme (Jedi Temple Burning (http://www.jedidefender.com/spearson/nightgown2.jpg))  - poor sad Padme...  :(

Would be nice to get those to round out some scenes...
Title: Re: Legacy Wave ? - Revenge of the Sith
Post by: Jesse James on March 20, 2008, 09:41 PM
I guess 7 figures isn't too many to guess at, so I'm gonna go with...

-Queen of Alderaan
-Grey Coruscant Clone SA Sculpt
-New Battledroid w/sturdier legs
-New Wookiee Warrior (retooling of the preview figure with a new head, or a slightly smaller sculpt than the preview figure, all new).

I'm gonna think on it and add a couple more later I think.  Those would be some good figures though.

Post by: Darby on March 20, 2008, 09:57 PM
Senate Duel Palpatine all the way.   :)

I'd also love to see a new Wookie Warrior, and FX-6, too.
Title: Re: Legacy Wave ? - Revenge of the Sith
Post by: Jesse James on March 20, 2008, 10:56 PM
Yeah, screw the 7-figure limit I was setting for myself...  I'd take:

-Senate Duel Palpy
-Office Duel Palpy
-a new Yoda
-Alderaan Return Bail Organa
-Whining Padme
-All Gold C-3PO
-Felucia Clone with Gelagrub mount
-V-Wing Pilot
-Anakin in Capsule w/clear "hovering effect" stand

and I could probably stand some freaky aliens of any sort that they could include from the separatists, the senate, or something.

I'd also add some unique Wookiee's like the one that shakes the stick and leads the charge onto the beach, or a new Tarrful with a little more poseability.  A new mid-size warrior with super articulation would rock too.  Variety is the spice of Wookiee life.

Going with 6 figures in case they go with the Droid Factory theme.

- V-Wing Pilot
- Nute Gunray
- Gray SA Coruscant Clone
- Senate Duel Palpatine
- Anakin w/ medical capsule
- Utai Mechanic

Lots more too that I would love to see.
Title: Re: Legacy Wave ? - Revenge of the Sith
Post by: Darth_Anton on March 21, 2008, 09:12 AM
I donno. There's not too much left from this movie that I'd like to see immortalized in plastic. Maybe a decent Palpatine in red robes....
Title: Re: Legacy Wave ? - Revenge of the Sith
Post by: Brian on March 21, 2008, 10:20 AM
Yeah, at this point a lot of ROTS is starting to be covered pretty well.  Its definitely the movie that seems to get the bulk of the waves.  Anyways, I like everyone else's ideas, and going with a 6-figure Build-A-Droid lineup, I have a lot of the usual suspects as well:

Coruscant Gray #41 Clonetrooper
Newly Scaled SA General Grievous
Red Robes Palpatine
V-Wing Pilot
Queen of Alderaan
Padme (Jedi Temple Burning)

I also wouldn't mind seeing some of the others mentioned (the other Palps, Utai Mechanic, new Yoda, 3PO, etc.)
Title: Re: Legacy Wave ? - Revenge of the Sith
Post by: Darth Broem on March 21, 2008, 10:33 AM
Yeah, I would not mind seeing these, but not much different that what everyone has mentioned.

Palpatine - Duel with Yoda
Yoda - A better one that can duel with Palpatine
FX-7 (the multi-armed medic droid) to complete that scene
Grievous - A tall version - 4 arms
Padme - Buns style hairdo
Utai 2 pack
Cin Drailig (sp?)
Cmdr Bacarra - resculpt

Bacarra is coming out in a BP dude.

besides that id like to see:

Grey clone trooper- SA with ball jointed hips.
Cin Drailig
Palpatine senate duel Sa
V-wing Pilot
New wookie warrior SA
Sa magna droid
random astromech
 and any main character to fill in the 8th spot.
Title: Re: Legacy Wave ? - Revenge of the Sith
Post by: CHEWIE on March 21, 2008, 12:55 PM
D'oh!!!  How did I leave Grievous off my list?  And the Magna Guard? 

- V-Wing Pilot
- Nute Gunray
- Gray SA Coruscant Clone
- Senate Duel Palpatine
- Anakin w/ medical capsule
- Utai Mechanic
- NEW SA Magna Guard
- NEW SA General Grievous

Have to keep that Anakin on there though... Jesse's idea on that is awesome.  That would make for such a kicka@@ figure.
Title: Re: Legacy Wave ? - Revenge of the Sith

Agreed on an ultimate Grievous and Magna Guard resculpts.  Not sure how I forgot those myself...  Both sorely need resculpting. :(

Post by: Diddly on March 23, 2008, 07:58 PM
Not too sure what all new stuff they could do from ROTS, as they're getting to the point where any release would be of something really obscure.

What I'd like:

- General Grievous (SA, soft goods, correct scale)
- MagnaGuard (SA, soft goods, correct scale)
- Palpatine (Senate Duel)
- Yoda (Senate Duel with proper skin color)
- Palpatine (SA Red Robes)
- Padme (Sad Jedi Temple Burning blue outfit)
- Coruscant Clone Trooper (ROTS #41 repaint)
Title: Re: Legacy Wave ? - Revenge of the Sith
Post by: P-Siddy on March 23, 2008, 11:03 PM
Going with the 8:

1. Crispy Darth Vader with Med Capsule pack-in (bionic legs and arms included)
2. FX-6
3. SA Palpatine (Office Duel Red Robes)
4. Padme Amidala (Velvet Cloak/Buns)
5. MagnaGuard (Cyclops)
6. SA proper scale Grievous (with Scorpion action)
7. Queen Organa
8. Cin Drallig
Title: Re: Legacy Wave ? - Revenge of the Sith
Post by: Rune Haako on April 5, 2008, 11:47 AM
We might get a new Palpatine in this Wave.

http://www.swcollector.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=57&t=1251

2.) With the Evolutions sets doing so well, could this be where we might finally see a figure of Senate Duel Palpatine, along with a new THE PHANTOM MENACE Darth Sidious and a non-action feature version of Empire Proclamation Palpatine? "The Palpatine Legacy" has a nice ring to it!

ANSWER: We don't have a Palpatine set planned for Evolutions, but your suggestions are interesting. Maybe someday we would do a pack like this, if Evolutions returns, and if we haven't done these versions already (we have already slotted at least one of them into the basic figure line for a future wave).
Title: Re: Legacy Wave ? - Revenge of the Sith
Post by: David on April 5, 2008, 01:34 PM
I'm not too surprised, but this is good news. Even though I voted for Senate Duel Palpatine in the ROTS wishlist, now I'm actually kind of hoping we get a resculpt of the Office Duel Palpatine first. They could include two headsculpts and the black robe he puts on after he names Anakin Vader, and that would make a pretty great figure.
Title: Re: Legacy Wave ? - Revenge of the Sith
Post by: Darth_Anton on April 6, 2008, 09:34 AM
A good senate duel Palpatine is extremely lacking. I'm hoping for that one as well.
Title: Re: Legacy Wave ? - Revenge of the Sith
Post by: Scott on April 6, 2008, 10:00 AM
Either Padme Buns hairdo or Senate Duel Palpatine are two of the most glaring unmade characters of EpIII...here is who I'd like to see (I'm guessing a 6 figure wave and Stass Allie has pretty much been confirmed):

Emperor Palpatine (Senate Duel)
Stass Allie
Padme Amidala Skywalker (Anakin Reunion)
General Grievous (SA and Properly Scaled)
Clone Trooper (Coruscant)
FX-6

Title: Re: Legacy Wave ? - Revenge of the Sith
Post by: Artoo on April 6, 2008, 03:08 PM

Title: Re: Legacy Wave ? - Revenge of the Sith
Post by: LandotheScoundrel on April 21, 2008, 02:03 PM
Here's my hopes/wishes...

1. Senate Duel Emperor
2. SA, correctly scaled Grievous with softgoods cloak (stitched-in pockets for lightsabers would be awesome)
3. SA Yoda with well-done softgoods robes
4. MagnaGuard SA with sturdy plastic and no action feature
5. Cin Drallig
6. New Wookiee warrior (the Sneak Preview sculpt with the armor style from the action feature wookiees)
7. Battle Droid SA, good quality plastic PLEASE!!!
8. Queen Organa
Title: Re: Legacy Wave ? - Revenge of the Sith
Post by: stan on May 6, 2008, 11:08 AM
Here the lastest,


General Grevious (to scale)
Bail Organa (Senate attire)
Queen Organa
Fx-6
Felucia Clone Trooper
Agen Kolar
Stass Allie
Commander Faie
Title: Re: Legacy Wave ? - Revenge of the Sith
Post by: Morgbug on May 6, 2008, 01:37 PM

-Whining Padme


Lacking specificity here.
Title: Re: Legacy Wave ? - Revenge of the Sith
Post by: David on May 6, 2008, 10:05 PM
From some otheR Site:

Revenge of the Sith Basic Figures

General Grevious (correct scale)
Stass Allie
Queen Breha Organa
Bail Organa (Senate Attire)
FX-6 (Medical Droid)
Felucia Clone Trooper
Commander Faie
Agen Kolar

No word on the BAF Droid Factory pack-in, but IF this wave turns out to be true, then it's a safe bet we'll see a pair of astromech droids.

Both General Grievous and Stass Allie are rumored to have been contenders for 2008 wave 1 (Stass Allie was even mentioned on some of the cardbacks), before being pushed back....might these be the place they ended up?
 


All of that sounds pretty good to me. I would prefer a Magnaguard resculpt over the 'Felucia Clone Trooper,' but it's great to see Grievous, Stass Allie, and Agen Kolar resculpts rumored. And I always love to see medical droids! :)




EDIT: Stan, I saw that you posted this list earlier, I just wanted to cite the internet media source. ;)

Bail Organa (Senate attire)
Queen Organa
Fx-6
Felucia Clone Trooper
Agen Kolar
Stass Allie
Commander Faie

Saw this posted at the place that shall not be named.  There's some good choices on here.  FX-6 was a no-brainer.  Queen Organa is a decent choice, too.  Scaled Grievous was due.  Hoping that he comes with a softgoods cloak.

Some of the others?  I can see that another Bail Organa would be due.  I would have thought that a Jedi Temple Attack version might be a cool choice, but this works, too.  Stass Allie was expected.  Hoping for a decent upgrade on the BARC Speeder version.  Just not sure what color lightsaber she should have.  As for Agen Kolar?  That's got me scratching my head.  Hopping that it isn't a straight reissue.  I'd like to see this version as SA with a softgoods cloak, and packed with the blue lightsaber from the Palpatine's office scene.

The Clones are even more puzzling.  A Felucia Clone Trooper?  I guess one has never been issued on a basic figure card.  Throw in a softgoods kama and I'd be more likely to buy it.  But the Evolutions release and battle pack satisfied my army building needs.  And then Commander Faie.  What to expect there?  There's concept art pointing to one type of Clone that's similar to the Combat Engineer Clone in Battlefront II.  But in the Dark Horse comics he's in the Kashyyyk Trooper gear.  What gives?

Not a bad rumor list for ROTS. At least everyone will shut up about the properly scaled Grevious now.  :-X

It's a good list, lots of variety... maybe a couple peg-warmers with the Organas. As for Grievous, there will probably be some gripe (not articulate enough, paint apps wrong, etc), but we can hope for the best.
Title: Re: Legacy Wave ? - Revenge of the Sith
Post by: Keonobi on May 7, 2008, 04:54 PM
If the Faie is like the concept art, BFII Engineer w/ Keller's cloak and the M&M paint job, it'd be pretty cool.  I might want to pick up a couple of those M&M troopers while I can.  Doesn't is seem like we should be seeing a new Owen and Beru Lars too?  We have the Skywalker infant Twins, a Queen Organa (rumored), we just need that not so happy home for baby Luke...
Title: Re: Legacy Wave ? - Revenge of the Sith
Post by: Darth Broem on May 8, 2008, 10:30 AM
I definately want FX-6 and Grievous.  The others are okay.  I may or may not buy a few of those.  Still waiting on buns style Padme and a nice duel figure of Palpatine.  I don't think anyone was asking for Agen Kolar were they? 
Title: Re: Legacy Wave ? - Revenge of the Sith
Post by: Brian on May 8, 2008, 10:45 AM
The list doesn't look too bad, but like some have said, may have some pegwarmers in there.  Personally, as long as we get a nicely scaled "ultimate" Grievous, I think a lot of us will be pretty happy.  FX-6 is a nice addition too, and one that's often asked for it seems.  I'm not necessarily unhappy with any of the characters included in this list (if confirmed), but I was kind of hoping for one of the ROTS Palpatines we've been wanting (or the buns hairdo Padme that was mentioned).
Title: Re: Legacy Wave ? - Revenge of the Sith
Post by: jedipurge on May 8, 2008, 11:58 AM
Felucia clone trooper?  Don't we already have a fairley descent/recent version of him?  It's not like the Felucian trooper was dogged by the fans like Hasbro's half assed versions of Gree & his Elite so I don't understand why we're getting another one.  Seems like there are plenty of other figures out there that could have been released in this wave.
Title: Re: Legacy Wave ? - Revenge of the Sith
Post by: Rune Haako on May 13, 2008, 07:58 PM
Maybe the Felucia Clone Trooper will come with the Gelagrub.

I doubt even if he got the Gree treatment he'd beable to sit on that thing.  The ball hinge on Gree is a mute point to me.  The OG AT-TE gunner is a better example of how ball jointed hips should work.
Title: Re: Legacy Wave ? - Revenge of the Sith
Post by: Nicklab on May 14, 2008, 01:03 PM
It does seem like you'd have to make it a deluxe pack in order to fit the ground slug in with that Clone Trooper.  At least to make it decent.  But then Hasbro has been squeezing some fairly large accessories in with basic figures recently:  the Cantina bar corners, the gongs, etc.
Title: Re: Legacy Wave ? - Revenge of the Sith
Post by: David on May 14, 2008, 01:34 PM
Exactly. If they can give us torture racks, kybucks, moisture vaporators, etc. then they can give us a slug.
Title: Re: Legacy Wave ? - Revenge of the Sith
Post by: ctonra on May 14, 2008, 03:51 PM
But the Big H said would not being seeing many more big accessories in the basic fig line.
and with the cost of figs hitting seven bucks a pop. do you really think they would be adding something of this size on a basic carded figure
Title: Re: Legacy Wave ? - Revenge of the Sith
Post by: jedi_master_sal on May 14, 2008, 04:10 PM
The Gelagrub would have been better in a battle pack. Oh say....the battle pack that was already made of this trooper for which the Gelagrub should have been made and packed it...

Missed opportunity.

Post by: Jesse James on May 15, 2008, 01:38 AM
Yeah, I can't say I'm banking on a Gelagrub on a basic card with a Clone.  Cool as all that sounds, I agree, I just think it sort of dwarfs accessories we've gotten so far.  I think they'd have to make it pretty small at least, which would be a tad disappointing in a way. 

I totally could see two in a battlepack someday though.  It could be a single-piece mold, so I wouldn't rule out seeing this someday in that fashion, similar to the Neyo battlepack.
Title: Re: Legacy Wave ? - Revenge of the Sith
Post by: Jeff on June 11, 2008, 03:11 PM
Revenge of the Sith Basic Figures

General Grevious (correct scale)
Stass Allie
Queen Breha Organa
Bail Organa (Senate Attire)
FX-6 (Medical Droid)
Felucia Clone Trooper
Commander Faie
Agen Kolar

According to the latest Curto rumor report (http://www.rebelscum.com/story/front/New_Rumor_List_For_The_Legacy_Collection_115275.asp), this wave may have changed slightly from the last rumor report...  it looks like Agen was dropped and Palpy was added in his place:

Wave 3:
- Bail Organa
- Breha Organa
- Clone Commander Faie
- Emperor Palpatine
- Felucia Clone Trooper
- FX-6
- General Grevious
- Stass Allie
Title: Re: Legacy Wave 3 - Revenge of the Sith
Post by: Nicklab on June 11, 2008, 03:24 PM
Very glad to see Palpatine on this particular list.  There are at least 3 versions of Palpatine from ROTS that could be viable contenders.  But hopefully we're looking at a Senate Duel version.
Title: Re: Legacy Wave 3 - Revenge of the Sith
Post by: CHEWIE on June 11, 2008, 03:45 PM
Bail Organa - hope this is a new sculpt... maybe his outfit from the beginning of the film

Breha Organa - bring her on...

Clone Commander Faie - all for this!

Emperor Palpatine - Senate Duel please

Felucia Clone Trooper - eh...

FX-6 - looking forward to it

General Grevious - be tall.... be very tall

Stass Allie
Title: Re: Legacy Wave 3 - Revenge of the Sith
Post by: JACKOFTRADZE on June 11, 2008, 04:16 PM
The Office Duel Palps needs to be resculpted too. I hope it is the Senate version but if it's not I would prefer Office duel version. For some reason I do not think the Bail will be a new sculpt. If his wife really is in that wave, chances are they will make them both scene specific in which they can use the old mold of Bail. Not a bad figure it just sucks that you will have to buy him again to complete the droid.

I hope they would at least do a new head sculpt or update the arms. His hands are a bit over sized.

Anyone else bored of clones? I can care less about clones, to me they have lost there luster.

This looks like a pretty nice wave overall. Heck, if it gives us a to scale, "definitive" Grievous - and a nice version of one of the Palpys we've all been wanting, the rest is just gravy.  Hopefully this holds out to be true.
Title: Re: Legacy Wave 3 - Revenge of the Sith
Post by: Diddly on June 11, 2008, 05:05 PM
I groaned when I first saw this thread because really, how many ROTS waves can one have in a year? But this is a good wave. Palpatine had better be a Senate Duel OR Office Duel resculpt. I'm passing on pretty much everything but Palps (depending on what he looks like), the Organas, and Grievous (again, depending on how tall he is).
Title: Re: Legacy Wave 3 - Revenge of the Sith
Post by: Dressel Rebel on June 11, 2008, 05:25 PM
The fact that it's listed as "Emperor Palpatine" and not "Chancellor Palpatine" leads me to believe it's going to be a Senate Duel type in black robes (already fried) as opposed to an Office Duel version in red robes vs. the 4 Jedi - at that point he was not Emperor yet.
Title: Re: Legacy Wave 3 - Revenge of the Sith
Post by: jedipurge on June 11, 2008, 05:47 PM
Don't forget that Faie was in the comics as well, and according to Wookiepedia he's been known to sport different uniforms-327TH-Bly's group, 41st in BARC/Elite/whatever the hell Hasbro is calling them this time around uniform, and the Engineer.  H could retool the upper torso/neck post on the 41st rescent release to give him a removable/switharoo head helmet version.  Also they have the helmet from the Battlefront figure for the Engineer.  So he can kind of be up in the air as to which one they put out.

As for Bail I'm hoping it's the version that looks like he's wearing a buttoned up trenchcoat, I think he's wearing it when he brings home Leia.

Stass I'm wondering how much of her will be a rehash of B. Swan, not that I'd mind-need more for custom female Jedi.

Post by: Brian on June 25, 2008, 04:14 PM
I see that the Palpatine previous rumored with this wave isn't listed there, but its likely a mistake since that would make it a seven figure wave - and with the B-a-D concept it is usually 6 (protocol) or 8 (2 astromechs) figure waves.
Title: Re: Legacy Wave 3 - Revenge of the Sith
Post by: Jeff on June 25, 2008, 05:19 PM
In the latest RS Q&A (http://www.rebelscum.com/story/front/Hasbros_56th_STAR_WARS_QA_The_Answers_115504.asp), Hasbro said "Waves 3 and 4 will feature protocol droids".

If the RotS wave is indeed Wave 3 and features a Protocol B-a-D, then it would only have 6 figures, right?  So which six of the rumored eight will we get? 

Man I wish it was SDCC time already so we could get some of this cleared up...  :-\

The Felucia Clone Trooper has been confirmed to be in the Saga Legends, unless this one is a different one from that one.

Palpatine doesn't seem to be on Amazon.

It may be those two.

Nice to see the confirmations, I'm particularly anxious to see the new Grievous.  I'm wondering though what the wave make-up will be, as this week's Q and A here at JD basically confirms that the ROTS wave is six figures.  I'm guessing the clonetrooper is part of the repaint wave, but then does that confirm that there won't be a new Palpy in this wave (or maybe it was already confirmed)?  Going by those listings, the six figures would be:

Commander Faie
General Grievous
Bail Organa
Breha Organa
FX-6
Stass Allie

Its a little disappointing that we may not be seeing one of the ROTS Palpatines covered in this wave, they could both use some "ultimate" versions.

Post by: Rune Haako on July 15, 2008, 08:58 PM
Here's descriptions of the characters from the page sources,

Commander Faie

    Faie has received specialized training from ARC trooper Alpha, equipping him with the necessary skills to lead an elite battalion during the Clone Wars. He is part of task forces sent to Saleucami and Kashyyyk under the command of Jedi General Quinlan Vos.

General Grievous

    A cyborg composed of melded metal and flesh, Grievous is one of the most chillingly effective military leaders in the Separatist's army. He is a powerful and frightening presence in battle, exhibiting strategic ingenuity and flawless cunning.

Bail Organa

    A member of the Galactic Senate, Organa is also First Chairman and Viceroy of Alderaan. When Anakin falls to the dark side and Padmé dies in childbirth, Bail and his wife Breha adopt one of the twins, Leia, to raise as their own daughter.

Breha Organa

    Queen Breha Organa is Alderaan's Minister of Education and the wife of Senator Bail Organa. Having longed for a child of her own for many years, Breha eagerly accepts one of Padmé's motherless twins and adopts her as the daughter she always dreamed of having.

FX-6

    FX-6 is one of the medical droids that assist in the reconstruction of Darth Vader after the Sith Lord's devastating duel with Obi-Wan Kenobi on Mustafar. The droid has multiple arms equipped with a variety of medical and diagnostic tools.

Clone Trooper 327th Star Corps

    The clone troopers in the 327th Star Corps are led by Clone Commander Bly and serve with Jedi General Aayla Secura on several planets in the Outer Rim Territories. This elite corps is distinguished by the yellow markings on their armor.

Stass Allie

    A skilled warrior, political advisor and healer, Stass Allie serves on the Jedi Council after her cousin and former master, Adi Gallia, is killed by General Grievous. She is leading a mop-up operation on the planet of Saleucami when Order 66 is issued.

Kind of a boring wave, I am happy to see a new Grevious. It would have been cool if they had a Adi Gallia variant head/repaint for this wave to make it more robust.

Thanks for posting that.  The Grievous, and the rest of the "new" figures look pretty nice on that poster.  Its always tough to judge, because Hasbro's collection posters always make the figures like quite cool it seems - but I'm going to stay optimistic on this one and hope we're getting our "ultimate" Grievous.  He definitely seems to be closer to the correct height this time.

That ROTS wave, with the exception of Grievous and Fx-6, is a huge letdown.  Was holding out hope for a Senate Duel Palpy (what gives?) and another Bail Organa does nothing for me.  Poor selection there.

Post by: CorranHorn on July 17, 2008, 04:08 PM
I'm concerned that Stass Allie is going to be a re-release of the figure that came with the Speeder Bike during ROTS. The cloak is rather bulky in the poster, but her pose makes me think its the same old figure. That would be disappointing, hopefully SDCC will prove me wrong.

Comparing this year to last is really night and day, 2008 was pretty weak figure wise. While there are a few gems in there, looking at the lineup now...seems that it's underwhelming. At least they fixed Grevious, he looks good. Nice to know I can ditch my old Grevious, Yaddle and the midget with the Dumbo ears. The paint jobs should be much better.
Title: Re: Legacy Wave 4 - Revenge of the Sith
Post by: Adam_Pawlus on July 17, 2008, 05:39 PM
It's certainly an interesting lineup.  Happy to see Jodo Kast, and Faie's been on a lot of wishlists.  5D6 RA-7 and *squints* M8 RA-7 (?) both are going to be awesome.  Curses for them finding a way to make droid fans buy *everything.*  Oh baby, I'm so loving the droids.

I really hope this isn't it for the year.  They made good with numerous excellent Expanded Universe offerings (21 EU, I think?) so that's wonderful... but man, no new Cantina aliens yet?   

They seemed to hit all the important marks.  I guess on paper it's a really balanced line, but after Wave 2 (which we knew of for months), there's only a couple of new characters to be had.  Kind of a bummer.  And I'm no expert... but the renaming thing I don't much like.  Before he was Commander Neyo, now he's a Saleucami Trooper.  He was a Death Star Gunner, but now he's an Imperial Engineer.  I thought we were getting *new* figures for the build-a-droid waves.  ("New", I always thought, was a head, or a deco change.  I'm not seeing any obvious differences here aside from the names, am I missing them?)

It's certainly a weird mix.   I want to (and don't want to) complain all at once.  But... droids!  So many droids!

(I wonder if/when Hasbro will ever start to market and sell the displays they make for these photos.  It looks cool, I'd put one in my toy room.)
Title: Re: Legacy Wave 4 - Revenge of the Sith
Post by: David on July 17, 2008, 06:53 PM
Hmmm...weird. Just weird. I don't know what to say. 2008 just isn't as wildly impressive and hugely appealing as 2007 was. There are definitely gems in there though, just not as many as I would've enjoyed seeing. Hopefully what we see of early 2009 at Comic-Con will be more promising. :-\

FX-6 is cool though. I hope Grievous' arms turn out okay, and that he gets a soft goods cape. Stass Allie should be cool if she doesn't end up being a repack, which some have speculated. And I'll still buy the Organas even though they're kinda boring.

Overall...meh...

Post by: Dressel Rebel on July 17, 2008, 06:56 PM
Seriously with the AT-TE and Homing Spider Droid, plus the sweet Evolutions packs with all the pilots, I'm really not complaining about the single carded figures.  I mean...Yarna, Bane Malar, Faie, baby Ewok, Quarren and Mon Cal soldiers....it's still a nifty year.
Title: Re: Legacy Wave 4 - Revenge of the Sith
Post by: Jesse James on July 17, 2008, 07:03 PM
Yeah, if my biggest gripe I can make is that I have to buy a full wave of repainted figures I don't really want/need, then I'm not too upset.  Holo Dooku is cool enough, and I'll take another Salecumai Trooper...  I'm not in need of another DSG but I'll get one and deal with it.

Yaddle/Pielle are easily the boring ones of that group.  41st Elite Trooper is fine, I'll take him and maybe some extras if the $$$ is there.  Maybe not too since I have a number of the original version already. 

The droids are all obviously great...

The ROTS wave itself is outstanding I think.  Organa looks infinitely cooler than his other figure, and so does his wife.  Grievous looks fantastic and is long overdue.  Faie...  Not terribly different to the Comic Pack Commander but I'll take it.  FX 6 and the Jedi look pretty great and round out those two characters people have asked for.  Overall I'd say I'm not disappointed... 

Not nearly as much OT as I'd like of course but it sounds like some good waves of OT are on the way.  Maybe we'll see one or more at SDCC?

Based on the poster it looks like Faie is part of the ROTS wave, and the 327th Trooper isn't anywhere to be found.  Looks like that might be a GH offering.
Title: Re: Legacy Wave 4 - Revenge of the Sith
Post by: Darth Broem on July 18, 2008, 12:59 AM
As far as the ROTS wave goes.  I really wanted the FX-6 figure.  It looks about how it should I think.  Breha and Bail look much better than I thought they would.  But I will probably end up skipping those.  Faie looks pretty cool, but there is so much clonetrooper stuff coming out this year I may opt for different troopers instead.  I am not going to buy Stass Allie or whatever name that is for her.  I would have years ago when ROTS was first out but the deluxe version on her bike is fine with me.  Of course I will buy General Grievous. 

As for the rest of the poster goes.  It's kind of pick and choose for me.  I will probably end up with 25-35% of those pictured.  I am not all that impressed with the build a droids to be honest.  At least not enough to buy every figure in a wave.  I do like the Sandcrawler droid though. 

Of all the figures on that poster I am the most excited for...Yarna.  LOL!  It's true though.

He's basically a tweaked Commander Keller from the 2008 Wal-Mart comic packs, at least from the look of things.  That and the artwork has been all over the place.
Title: Re: Legacy Wave 4 - Revenge of the Sith
Post by: Jesse James on July 18, 2008, 02:54 AM
Blowing up the photo made me think his helmet (maybe head too?), and belt look unique...  Couldn't tell much more on that.  Keller's helmet and sculpt in general are an Airborne Clonetrooper.  I'm not sure if the arms and everything are the Airborne Trooper on Faie or not.  Can't see the details to know.
Title: Re: Legacy Wave 4 - Revenge of the Sith
Post by: Jesse James on July 18, 2008, 04:30 AM
Looking Commander Faie over more, I see his left leg is clearly a new sculpt, his helmet and hood are new sculpts, and so I'm gonna go on a limb and say he's maybe only sharing parts with an Airborne Trooper partially, but is a lot of new tooling.  His belt is dirtied up but I think it may not be new as I first thought.

I dig Faie's look and it's a very unique head/helmet.

Too bad we didn't get a Clone Engineer anywhere.  Way, way better choice than the "Imperial Engineer".  ::)  And nobody gave a hoot on Piell/Yaddle.

Post by: Nicklab on July 18, 2008, 12:03 PM
Grievous and FX-6 are the stars of this wave for me.  VERY NICE!  I've been waiting for an FX-6 figure ever since I saw that scene in ROTS.  And Grievous actually looks pretty menacing now.  I wonder if the arms might be interchangeable, so that you can have a 4 armed version as well as a 2 armed version.

Bail and Breha Organa both look good.  Not terrible exciting, but cool choices to round out the wave.  Commander Faie?  Eh.  I thought it was a cool design, but the fact that this clone never saw any screen time is wearing on me.  Stass Allie is a decent addition to the ranks of the Jedi.  A much better offering than the ROTS Deluxe figure.  And if it is based on the Bultar Swan body, I wouldn't be one to complain.  I thought Bultar Swan was a good figure.

Looks like the silver RA-7 is the BAF for this wave.  It looks like the knees aren't articulated, but that's not the end of the world.
Title: Re: Legacy Wave 4 - Revenge of the Sith
Post by: jedipurge on July 18, 2008, 12:09 PM
grevious-looks like the shoulder joint, the 2 arms 1 shoulder, looks like they'll have to move together like the ROTS $10 deluxe version you move 1 the other has to move as well they don't look to operate independent of each other.  Though for a toy on this scale I don't know how you'd have 2 arms 1 socket and still be seperate movement.

stass-wouldn't surprise me if it's Swann's body under just different colors, hands, and maybe a different skirt piece.  Also she looks to be holding Jade's lightsaber from the comic pack.

Faie-I'm hoping/wondering if that's a removable helmet, he had a distinct hairstyle for a clone and H would be missing a chance here to give us something a little different besides just the standard clone head.  Also faie concept art had him in armor different then the standard, who knows whats under that poncho.

husband and wife-just me or does Bail look like a child molester standing next to Breha, she looks like a child.  They'll peg warms like crazy, but look like good custom fodder.  Bail I think has the "trench coat"outfit thing going on under the soft goods.
www.padawansguide.com/others/bail6.jpg
www.padawansguide.com/others/sheltay.jpg

FX-6-looks great he'll look good with chopper & 21b.

RA-7-I wonder how they'll pack these if they're 2 different versions?  They don't look to have much articulation, hopefully they're just protos but I guess it's the best we'll get.  Better then the buff version, he looks like a load lifter driod compared to this one.

There are numbers next to each BAF droid in the poster.  Those run sequentially, and it looks like the black RA-7 is packed with wave 3.  The silver version appears to come with wave 4.

I was thinking exactly the same thing.   In a Q&A, maybe here even, Hasbro said (I think) that Bultar's body could be used to make other female Jedi... 

Personally I'm hoping for some generic male/female humans at some point.  I'm tired of the only human Jedi I have being main characters or Mace Windu.  Gotta get some good generic Jedi in there.  Pilot Obi-Wan with a new head and deco...  Easily resold figure.  Do the N'Sync Jedi, whatever, just hope they do some generic humans.

To bad the Protocol BAD's don't look articulated. Other than that, for a PT wave, this is a pretty good one and I think it's because there's no army builders (unless you want to consider the commander one.)

I didn't see any new comments on this wave since Comic Con started, but it doesn't look too bad from the pics.  Stass Allie, thankfully, is not the previous version - but nicely articulated.  Grievous looks nice too, and its good to see that the Build a Droids for Waves 3 and 4 are nicely articulated as well.  Still wish we were getting a new Palps, but not too bad of a wave overall.

I think that Faie rocks.  Probably the meanest looking clone/stormie helmet design I've seen... I've been very much burnt out on clones the past year or so, but this one is an exception for me. 

(http://www.yakface.com/Features/SDCC2008/hasbro/images3/35.jpg)

I'd like to get about a dozen and use them as a fan fic squad... much more appealing than ARC troopers, Commandos, or Shadow Troopers.  The helmet design also actually looks like it could be in one of the films... would like to see a pic of the figure without any of the cloak or hood, with just the helmet on.

I feel the same way about Faie...  Coolest Clone so far I think, even if it's non-movie.  Love concept stuff, loved the concept look of this one in the first place, and love that they decided to give a clone a Flat top haircut instead of the "standard".  Kind of setting up the Clones in the new series having unique hairstyles to express themselves like their armor decoes.

Grievous is still that wave's winner to me, but Faie's a close second.

Hmmm...  looking at those GH pics, I see that the 327th Star Corps (http://www.galactichunter.com/photo.asp?image=absolutenm/articlefiles/7399-20.jpg) says BD No. 29 on the front of the card.  ???

So much for making sure the straight repacks have the "GH No. xx" numbering scheme....  :P  At least it looks like he comes with the same droid piece as Faie, so at least you won't need to buy him to complete the RA Droid though.


They probably made a mistake on that in photography or packaging cause if you look at them all there isn't a pic of anyone having the black torso, but 2 of them having the silver.

That's because the black RA-7 droid torso is supposed to come with the Coruscant Clone Trooper from Wave 3, who isn't pictured there...

Just a heads up for those interested, but it looks like HTS has this wave up for preorder (shipping 10/27).  With the 10% off code, its pretty much retail price so not a bad deal if its tough to find them in your area.

Also, since I posted that, they don't seem to be on their site at all anymore - and I also received a notice from HTS saying that the items were no longer available and they were cancelling that order (which has happened to almost anything I've preordered in advance there lately).  Just as a heads up.  They do have wave 3 in stock though, at $7.99 each.

If FX-6 just wasn't enough to satiate you guys, here's another photo as per our front page...

(http://www.jedidefender.com/news/images/1-08/08Leg_StassAllie_TN.jpg)

Head on out to the front page to check out Stass Allie, the last Jedi offed in the Order 66 sequence to get a decent figure.  But where's her bike?

Well if you're like me you want Hasbro to finally make a new damn bike that's smaller, more accurate, figure's feet fit to the pads, and that has a clear stand so it looks like it's hovering.  So I'm ok without the bike because, well, I'm sick of the vintage mold at this point, and all its inaccuracies.

I just hope she can chill on the bike when/if we get one...  If not, then I hope she has a softgoods skirt version later on when the bike's out then...  One can hope. :)

I'm not 100% up on which BAD comes with which wave and so forth, so I'm just posting this here as it's late and I'd like to sleep...  No front page story for it, it's nothing huge, but I thought people might want a gander at the RA-7 (Silver) Build-A-Droid figure.  I was thinking he's either with the ROTS or the ANH wave...   :-X

(http://www.jedidefender.com/news/images/1-08/08Leg_BAD_RA7_Loose.jpg)  (http://www.jedidefender.com/news/images/1-08/08Leg_BAD_RA7_Loose2.jpg)

It's tough to tell in the image but the shine to him is really nice.  Kind of how the metallic to the black RA-7 in the repaint wave's BAD figure is pretty nice.

I've lovin' Build-A-Droid this year, I must say.

Nice JJ, this is in fact MB-RA-7, who is the BAD for the ROTS wave. Deep down I wish that this version had the metalized finish as a nice nod to the vintage DSD, but this will due.

Post by: Darth_Anton on October 10, 2008, 09:32 AM
This guy comes with wave 4, the ROTS wave. I'll be looking forward to this one. Though, it'll pose the tough question of; which figure should stand beside the vintage version as the update? This RA7 which is the same color, or the FF black one which is the same name? Hmmm...
Title: Re: Legacy Wave 4 - Revenge of the Sith
Post by: Jesse James on October 10, 2008, 02:11 PM
If you guys are interested in it enough, if you have an extra POTF2 Death Star Droid, you can actually remove the black finish and get a completely chrome droid underneath.  Customizers found that little trick out some years back.

Nail Polish Remover should take the black coating off and reveal the chrome...  You'll probably have a tough time getting some of the black out of the recessed areas but it actually looks like wear & tear then too, an added bonus.  I've seen a couple customs like that over the years and they look pretty sharp.

Post by: Jesse James on October 11, 2008, 01:33 AM
I always actually liked the POTF2 DSD a lot...  I didn't think of it as buff really, but it definitely isn't the level of cool the new droids are either...  Still, I think vac-metalizing + articulation are things Hasbro doesn't want to get into too much since the pins at the very least couldn't be plated.

It makes a unique enough droid with chrome on it, but I too would dig a newer sculpt vac-metalized...  Still I dig the POTF2 one enough I guess.   :-\

Got a couple carded shots of Stass Allie and Felucia Clone up on the front page...  The Felucia Clone is a real dickjob to the people who don't army build but want the droid.  That one stings to many I'm sure.  I personally don't mind the extra Clone so if people need the part it comes with I'll probably have extras.
Title: Re: Legacy Wave 4 - Revenge of the Sith
Post by: Darth_Anton on October 21, 2008, 09:11 AM

Title: Re: Legacy Wave 4 - Revenge of the Sith
Post by: Nicklab on October 21, 2008, 09:18 AM
The Felucia Clone appears to be one of the Greatest Hits figures.  That being the case, the Felucia Clone will probably have the same droid part as some other figure in the wave.  That's been happening with the other Greatest Hits figures, as well as some earlier wave figures that are carrying forward into the new wave's case.
Title: Re: Legacy Wave 4 - Revenge of the Sith
Post by: Brian on October 21, 2008, 09:41 AM
I was thinking (hoping) that the Felucia clone was a Greatest Hits figure as well.  Since this is a "protocol" droid wave, there is just six Build-a-Droid parts, so I think that breaks down with the other figures in this assortment:

General Grievous
Bail Organa
Breha Organa
Stass Allie
FX-6
Commander Faie

Hopefully the droid part with the Felucia clone is just a repeat, so its not something people have to worry about too much.  I don't mind having another, but if I don't find it - I don't find it.  At this point I have to start making some cutbacks where I can, and I guess I don't absolutely need that figure if the droid part isn't unique.

I believe he comes with torso, but I think one of the other comes with the Torso as well. 
Seeing as what happen with the other wave it should mean theat whatever else ship with Wave 4 will also have the RA-7 droid part, kinda like how the Quad Gunner came with the black RA-7 head but first came with the R4, I think, part.

There's a link a couple pages back to GH that has pics of wave 4 and what part they came with.

Yes, according to Hasbro pics that came out a while back, Commander Faie (http://www.galactichunter.com/photo.asp?image=absolutenm/articlefiles/7399-9.jpg) and the 327th Star Corps Trooper (http://www.galactichunter.com/photo.asp?image=absolutenm/articlefiles/7399-19.jpg) both come with the silver torso piece (unless something has changed between then and now).

Agreed. I bought all of this wave but the Felucia Clone (it was out of stock) as well as the GH holiday 3-packs, 2 battle packs, and two animated figs from HTS. Using the code MDCREW I saved 20%. (About $40 total). With that discount, tax and shipping were wiped out and I STILL managed to save $10 less than retail for these. Most of these site unseen is fine for me. If I get screwed up paint jobs, then I'll look for them at retail and trade/sell the carded stuff or just return the pervious (HTS) one to the store I bought the better one from.

Well, I'm not in a hurry for this stuff. I figure, I can wait a few extra weeks and SAVE $40.

I haven't been of the mind that I have to have things right now, for some time. And that has saved me a nice bundle of cash.

WHy pay $7.99 in a week, when you can pay $5.39 and have it in three weeks? that $1.60 makes a big difference when you buy in quantity.

I couldn't agree more.  I hope they move more towards that sort of categorization in the future as well.  I've had things I've "preordered" there before come in without any trouble, and I've had some things get cancelled (by them) as well.  I did preorder a set of these there with the code, but if I find them locally prior to that I'll just cancel my order/preorder I guess.  I would think if they could offer actual preorders, or even preorders of sets like they have of TLC Wave 3, they could really get a lot (or more) of business from collectors.

Yeah, that's my hope too. When I've bought other stuff from HTS that says shipping in so many weeks, it usually ends up shipping much sooner. So I figured I could take that chance, and even if I did have to wait, that I'd still be saving a bit of change.

His torso, shoulers and belt are all new... the torso almost looks like he has breasts... seriously.  But it still looks good.  The shoulders are much more like the concept art.  Overall, an AWESOME figure.  Maybe the best clone figure they've ever made... also, I love the crew cut on the clone head.

I picked up the Organas and FX-6 today (got Grevious the other day), so now I need Stass and Faie... they did have the other clone, but left that behind. I'm amazed at how quick I'm finding these... especially with the help of a Red Shirt to score FX-6 and Breha (Bail was on the pegs, but asked him if they had more in back). Must have been a pilfered box.

I received this wave via HTS today, and its a pretty nice wave overall.  I think that FX-6 and Grievous are my favorites of the wave though.  FX-6 is just a great figure, and like others have mentioned, it really reminds me of the POTJ FX-7.  Although he doesn't include his cape, this Grievous is worlds better than any of the others we've gotten previously - and the height increase is a nice touch as well.  I hope to pick up another one of the Grievous figures, if possible.

Just a quick question:  does anyone know the correct assembly of FX-6's arms?  I've looked at photos of the digital model in the Prequels Chronicles book, the Complete Visual Dictionary, and even the entry in the Essential Guide to Droids, and still no luck.  You'd think a figure with this many attachments would at least have some kind of diagram to show where everything goes.   :-\

Doc, you need not look further than the figure itself. I got it today and tried to put the arms on. The ones (5 or 6 of them) that attach to the figure are semi-circles that fit in only one spot. These are also numbered (they are pretty small so if you have poor eyesight, break out the magnifying glass). There are corresponding numbers on the attachments, so match them up 1 = 1, 2 = 2, etc.

I found Faie this morning, they also have the 327th Trooper, is this the same one that was in the Battlepack with Ayla?  I thought this was supposed to be a SL figure.  Was there another figure that was supposed to be in this slot that got bumped?

I thought that the 327th Trooper was supposed to be a Greatest Hits figure more than anything else.  Having it slated as a BD figure swung things in another direction though.  It does make for something of an odd wave though, having 7 figures in the wave when the BAF droid only requires 6 pieces.  Maybe this is a result of Stass Allie being assigned to this wave late in the game?

The Grevious is uber sweet! This wave would have been much cooler if a Magna Guard was in it to accompany him, FX-6 was a wasted new tool figure slot  The FX-6 figure is a real bottom of the figure bin stacker. Faie is so-so. The moobs kinda ruins it for me, the poncho will be staying on, nice head sculpt.

Hasbro's 2008 case ratios are really quite crappy. I received cases of Joes (8-11), Indy (TOD) and SW (2-4) and all of the new figures are 1 per case with tons of reissues. If it was not for Target stores receipts that put all three lines in generic coding number clumps I would be stuck with a lot of excess.

Of all the figures in this wave, that is the one I'm the most geeked up about - whether it sells  well or not.

I actually love FX-6. I'm glad to get him. Also think the Organas are a great addition as well.

Cool, thank you very much, Vlad.  My eyesight is horrible, so I never would have picked up on it, so again, thank you for your assistance.  :)

I finally completed this wave on Thursday, and I think that, overall, it's a good series.  I had some issues with Breha's head being loose on the joint, but I was able to fix it with the nail polish trick.  Grievous is (lack of a cape aside) exactly what I've been hoping and wishing for these last few years.  If Hasbro would give the MagnaGuards similar treatment and crank out a few paint variants, I'd be thrilled.

Opened the rest of what I have last night. They're all pretty nice, no real complaints, but I have to single out Grevious as the highlight of the wave. While he's not perfect, he is a tad bulky in the wrong areas, the engineering of the articulation is superb.

I saw this wave at WM over the weekend, and grabbed a 2nd Grievous figure.  I really like this figure overall, a big improvement over the other versions.  Sure, its missing the cape, which is a bummer (I'm sure we'll get it in a re-release to get us to buy it again or something), but overall its a pretty nice figure.  Plus, it seems pretty sturdy despite the "spindly" nature of the character.

I managed to find this whole wave in about a week's time, thank god.  I'm actually caught up on stuff except for comic packs.  I sorta can rest easy now.

I expect we'll see many ORgana figures on pegs though, come this holiday and into early next year. :(

Found Faie, putting this wave to bed for me. It is a weird figure. The head is huge and the body without the shawl is a bit cartoony. Still works, though.

Build the silver RA-7. Will probably display him with the vintage Death Star droid.

Anton, out of curiosity, how's that Faie helmet look on a stormie or sandie?

If I could post pictures, I would. However, I seem to have problems doing so. The helmet is a little loose since the Stormie head is a tad smaller. Using my patented toilet paper fix-it job with loose fitting neck joints and helmets, it looks a tad too to big and kind of weird, but that's just me.

For those interested, I noticed that this wave is in stock over at TRU.com (as well as Clone Wars Wave 3).  Priced at $7.99, but there is free shipping on all Star Wars stuff (with no minimum purchase).

Now that I have this complete wave, I'd have to say that this was a pretty good wave. Not as good as Wave #2, but still a pretty solid wave.

Grievous is nice, I appreciate what Hasbro tried to do here. It doesn't work 100%, but it's still close enough. I think they should have stuck with either, two arms or four and not tried to make the figure double as both, but this does give them the opportunity to put permanently joined arms on the figure and give us a nice cloth cape at some point in the future.

The Commander Faie figure is nice. Was originally only planning on picking up one of these to open, but I might get a second one just 'cause I like how this figure turned out.

FX-6 is nice. Had a heck of a time trying to get one of the arms in, but other than that, once the figure was together, it looks great. Will make a nice addition to my mini display of the deluxe Anakin -> Vader on the table figure. Nice that they completed the trio of droids from that scene.

Stass Allie - nice figure, always welcome to have another female Jedi figure.

Bail Organa & Breha Organa - these two really puzzled me. If there was ever a time to re-package the infant Leia sculpt, it was with one of these two figures (perhaps with Breha). I never thought I'd see a Breha Organa figure. Heck, I definitely thought we'd see a Beru Whitesun figure before a Breha Organa figure, but whatever, nice to have her out of the way.

Post by: Kendo Benobi on March 7, 2009, 07:24 AM
One of my FX-6 arms/appendages doesn't fit where it's supposed to. Has anyone else had this problem?

It's the arm that's one-of-a-kind (looks like a tiny toothbrush) and should go between the single green IV and the double red IV. But, it's too large. Every photo I've seen of this figure says it the right spot but it ain't happening.

Help!

Yup.

I shaved the arm peg down with a scalpel until it fit into the hole.

It wasn't until then that all of my wildest FX-6 dreams came true.

Post by: Nicklab on March 7, 2009, 03:29 PM
I found it a little odd that there was no instruction booklet to details which arms went where.  But the parts were made in such a way that only a certain arm will fit in a particular slot.

While we're on the subject of this figure... did anyone else barely ever see him at retail?  I never saw it in a big box store once.  I paid $12 for it at a comic shop because it'd been over a month since the wave first started showing up and I hadn't seen one. 

I never saw the other figures in the wave in any real quantity, I just ran across scraps a few times.  Only saw Grievous once.

That's odd right?

Yes, especially from what I've seen you gather up in your retail area.

I saw every figure in that wave 20 times.

I picked up another one of these today to assemble and to see if I could decipher the puzzle.

Each arm section has a small number stamped on the side of it: 1, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7 and 8. There is no number 2.

Here's how mine assembled starting from the arm in between the blue and red vial piece and going around counter clockwise.

6 - 4* - 5 - 3 - 8* - 1 - 7

*arms with sections permanently installed in body.

Thanks for the feedback everyone. Glad I wasn't the only one. I'll wait to see if the designer responds otherwise FX-6 is going to undergo a little surgery of its own.
