Title: Legacy Wave 5 - A New Hope
Post by: Jeff on March 20, 2008, 09:41 PM
Since this wave has been confirmed in the latest Q&A session (http://www.jedidefender.com/newspro/fullnews.cgi?newsid1206060291,41391,), let the speculation begin...

*fingers crossed for Bom Vimdin* ;)

One of them has to be Obi Wan, since the Imperial Shipyards scored an answer having to do with Obi figs from I, II, and IV.  We're getting all of them.   ;D

Post by: Jayson on March 20, 2008, 11:07 PM
Walrus Man (none of this Ponda Baba BS) with alternate flipper hands
Dr. Evazon
Han with Stormtrooper Belt
Luke with Stormtrooper Belt & grappling hook
Gray DST with new MSE Droid
Obi-Wan with Training Remote and Holo Leia (from the commtech R2)

OMG Jayson, that list would be great.  There are still some obscure cantina denizens that we haven't gotten, and some we need resculpts for.  I really want a Yerka Mig (blond haired jacketed guy with yellow arm stripes) and Danz Borin (the spacesuit fella) and I wouldn't mind a resculpt of the red Snaggletooth from the cantina cinema scene.  Give us a black suited Imperial officer, or a multi-armed treadwell.  I need an Uncle Owen resculpt BADLY, and there are several Rebel pilots we could use including Wedge and Red Leader.

Good list Jayson...

Here's what I'd like to see... gotta throw in a few cantina aliens... and I'm going with 6 figures I guess because of the Droid Factory theme...

- NEW Rebel Fleet Trooper
- NEW Walrus Man
- NEW Dr. Evazan
- NEW Obi Wan Kenobi
- NEW Grand Moff Tarkin
- Bom Vimdim
Title: Re: Legacy Wave ? - A New Hope
Post by: Jesse James on March 21, 2008, 01:12 AM
CHEWIE's would match mine pretty closely, though I might replace Ponda Baba with someone...  Then again I might not, those are good choices.

I'm 100% not changing the Fleet Trooper, Tarkin, or Bom Vimdin.

I think I'd take Obi-Wan out (even though he's likely coming according to another Q&A answer), and slip in a grey Death Star Trooper.  I bet we get him eventually anyway though.

Although there isn't much wrong with the old one Wuher may get a re-release.

Also a cloth caped Jawa wouldn't go a miss (wasn't there one in the vintage style packaging line due for release?)

I had a dream last night about these figures. The Walrus Man and Dr Evazon each included half of the Cantina Bar Drink dispensory - now that would be cool.  8)

They have made Gold and Red Leader...Red Leader was a crappy POTJ Luke w/ New Head...

(http://www.rebelscum.com/swsaga/sw04xwingredleaderpilotfr.jpg)

Gold Leader was the decent Dutch Vander in Saga

(http://www.rebelscum.com/swsaga/sw0413goldleaderloose-m.jpg)

I'd love a new Red Leader
Title: Re: Legacy Wave ? - A New Hope
Post by: Nicklab on March 21, 2008, 11:43 AM
That Red Leader was the definition of The Suck.  And I think Hasbro is fully aware of that.  But the issue with that figure seemed to be that the Gold Leader sculpt which has been getting reused with Wedge, Biggs, Hobbie et al, was too big to fit in the cockpit of the X-Wing.  Hence this figure.  I'm very much in favor of a new Red Leader figure since he really is such a major player in the Battle of Yavin.  I wouldn't mind a Gold 5 either! ;D

As for what I'd like to see in this ANH wave?

-Red Leader resculpt
-Commander Praji - Stormtrooper Officer/Black tunic Imperial Officer from the Tantive IV
-Lt. Pello Scambras - Rebel Fleet Trooper (SA)
-Bom Vimdim
-WED15-1662 droid
-Ben Kenobi (SA update on the VOTC figure)

Title: Re: Legacy Wave ? - A New Hope
Post by: Nicklab on March 21, 2008, 11:52 AM
I like your add-ons Scott.  The one thing that got me planning a 6 figure wave was Curto's recent rumor report that the ANH wave might be 6 figures, with a Protocol Droid as the B-A-D.  But I also was thinking that my list might be a bit too fanboy-ish, since I've only got the one core character in there.  I think Hasbro might go with 2 core characters in a 6 figure wave.

Also, I threw in Praji because he's been on the rumor lists for a while.  But it's such a natural choice.  The guy has lines, and we've never gotten a black tuniced Imperial Officer.
Title: Re: Legacy Wave ? - A New Hope
Post by: Daigo-Bah on March 21, 2008, 12:23 PM
Thanks, Scott- dangit, I was right the first time; we need a Red Leader resculpt, not Gold Leader.
Title: Re: Legacy Wave ? - A New Hope
Post by: Brian on March 21, 2008, 12:25 PM
I like everyone's ideas here too.  I'd like to see them all.  Even though I just did a headswap to get them, I still wouldn't mind single carded versions of Luke and Han Stormtrooper as well - but I'll leave them out of this wave since they are simple enough to make, and we'll likely see them somewhere.

SA, "ultimate" Rebel Fleet Trooper
SA, "ultimate" Obi-Wan Kenobi
SA, "ultimate" Tatooine Luke Skywalker (I still don't feel we have one, even after all the versions)
New Walrusman/Ponda
Bom Vimdim
Commander Praji

If we list alternates (or an 8 figure wave), I'd add in Wioslea, a new Tarkin, a Red Leader resculpt, gray DST, Han/Luke with Stormtrooper belts,etc.  Really, there's a lot of resculpts we could handle over time - even Wedge could use an "all new" version at some point as well (and a single carded retail release!).
Title: Re: Legacy Wave ? - A New Hope
Post by: CHEWIE on March 21, 2008, 12:47 PM
A screw it - we need TWO new ANH waves next year.  And both early.  Damn that would be awesome... imagine about a dozen new ANH sculpts, with about half of them being never before made figures.  :)
Title: Re: Legacy Wave ? - A New Hope
Post by: speedermike on March 21, 2008, 03:29 PM
I agree!!  I'm an equal oportunuty figure fan, but it's the ANH stuff that really floats my boat.  Especially stuff w've never seen.  I'd be happy with Praji, Woislea, Rebel Fleet Trooper, Bom Vinwhatever, and Uncle Owen. Rebel pilots don't interest me that much,  since all of the uniforms are the same.
Title: Re: Legacy Wave ? - A New Hope
Post by: JesseVader08 on March 21, 2008, 07:40 PM
News of this ANH wave was a great relief, no doubt!  I've enjoyed all the Clone Wars news recently, but at heart I'm still an OT guy, like so many have said.

Give me my Cantina creatures and SA RFT and I'm a happy guy.

Title: Re: Legacy Wave ? - A New Hope
Post by: David on March 21, 2008, 08:02 PM
Here's what I'd like to see the most if there are only six figures:

Commander Daine Jir
(http://www.artandeth.com/Gallery2/ActorsU/54288-18163.gif)

Rebel Fleet Trooper (new, SA)
(http://www.artandeth.com/Gallery2/ActorsU/54286-18163.gif)

Walrusman (new, SA)
(http://www.archives-alliance.com/images/gen0093.jpg)

Leesub Sirln
(http://images.wikia.com/starwars/images/7/7d/LeesubSirln1.jpg)

Obi-Wan Kenobi (new, SA)
(http://champdesreves.files.wordpress.com/2007/02/obi-wan-ben-kenobi.jpg)

Wioslea
(http://images2.wikia.nocookie.net/starwars/images/thumb/9/93/Vuvrian_AA.jpg/250px-Vuvrian_AA.jpg)

If it were to be an eight figure wave, I would add on Gold 5 (couldn't find a picture, it's the one from Nicklab's avatar) and a new Grand Moff Tarkin.

Anyone know how everything is going with the Tonikka Sisters? I remember Hasbro said that they were making progress getting the rights for the living one. Seems like this would be a perfect fit for them. Anyway, here's what I'd like to see:

- Grand Moff Tarkin (SA/near SA)
- Obi-Wan Kenobi (SA, based off VOTC figure)
- Ponda Baba (near SA with removeable arm)
- Dr. Evazan (near SA)
- Jawa (TAC rerelease)
- Red Leader
- Commander Praji
- SA Rebel Fleet Trooper

If there are 6 figures, I'd throw out Praji and Red Leader

Wait...you would throw out 2 never before made characters (I don't count the Red Leader figure that was packed in with his X-Wing ;)  ), but you WOULD include a repack of the 30AC Jawa?  WHU?!?!
Title: Re: Legacy Wave ? - A New Hope
Post by: DoctorPadawan on March 23, 2008, 01:10 PM
You know, I'm all for making obscure background characters into figures, but the focus on the Tonnika Sisters has always kind of vexed me.  With all the interesting designs yet to be done from the Cantina, the most wanted one is of a green bodysuit girl (or girls) with braided hair extensions?  If the Tonnika Sisters ever get made, I'll buy them, but they are nowhere near the top of my list for OT figures, much less ANH figures, and even further much less Cantina patron figures.  No intended hate to the Tonnika fans, but they just don't appeal to me much in the least.

With that said, this is what I'd like to see in a 6-8 figure ANH-themed wave (some of which others will undoubtedly harbor some of my Tonnika sentiments toward): :)

01.  Obi-Wan Kenobi (SA/Ultimate with soft goods, lightsaber, training remote, and blast shield helmet)
02.  Rebel Fleet Trooper (SA/Ultimate with running head variants)
03.  Ponda Baba (SA/Ultimate with blaster and removable arm)
04.  Dr. Evazan (SA/Ultimate with blaster pistol)
05.  Uncle Owen Lars (new sculpt)
06.  Bom Vimdin
07.  Red Leader (SA, new sculpt)
08.  Grand Moff Tarkin (SA, new sculpt)

Title: Re: Legacy Wave ? - A New Hope
Post by: Jesse James on March 24, 2008, 12:54 AM
ANH's probably my most interested film to see figures come about, so I thought about this a bit...  CHEWIE's list is pretty close to mine I think, but I'd go with this:

-Tarkin Resculpt (most needed non-army builder resculpt to me personally)
-Fleet Trooper SA Resculpt (this guy finally needs the works already...  If they were to include an extra piece with a scanner gun, I'd dig that)
-Bom Vimdin (my most wanted Cantina character right now)
-Dr. Evazan Resculpt (Ponda's not articulated, but holding up IMO, but Dr. E sucks, and has never held up)
-Ultimate Tatooine Luke Skywalker (easily, to me, the most needed hero from ANH is a "final" Luke figure that could easily get a STormtrooper belt slapped on him for a DSE version)
-Black Tunic Imperial Officer (again, a long-needed figure to me).

That'd be my 6-figure choice...

An 8-figure choice, I'd add:

-Ponda Baba Resculpt (He's holding up, but not fantastic, and who wouldn't love a new one?  I like the idea of alternate "flipper" hands as well)
-Death "Squad" Star Commander (I'd like a new sculpt honestly, or at least a little retooling to the legs so they're a little less akward looking, and more normal height)

And honorable mentions would definitely go to:

-Generic X/Y-Winger...  Young headsculpt, 70's hair, clean helmet with powder blue emblem and black visor.
-Red Leader
-Red Leader's R5 Unit
-Yavin IV Hangar Technician/Mechanic
-Luke Stormtrooper
-Han Stormtrooper
-Ultimate "Old Ben" Kenobi (is that what we'll get from the Evo one?  I hope so!)
-Wioslea
-Orange Mos Eisley R5
-Cantina Midget (You know you want the Cantina midget)
-Tonnika Sisters (I agree, they're not my top want, but I'd dig getting them)
-Garrouf Lafoe (Cantina Snitch)
-Drunk Jawa Squatters (outside Cantina)
-Various Imperial Head Variants for the black tuniced Officer...  Lots of them had lines, I'd dig getting some of them with the brown leather holster, rank, and headsculpt variations.
-Y-Winger ("Stay On Target", Gold 2?)
-Red 10 X-Winger (Red helmet)
-"Space"Trooper Stormtrooper
-Yerka Migg
-Cantina Dude/Spacer
-Danz Borin
-Rebel Officer (Honor Guard w/cap, though I'd like the guys with the neck scarfs to be honest)
-Yavin IV Communications Officer (Made the calls to the pilots from the base, similar, but different from the regular Yavin IV Mechanics/Techs)

And probably about a dozen other figures... 

A New Hope, to me anyway, is easily one of the more fertile grounds for figures, especially army builders, even in obscurity.  Lots of Aliens, droid repaints, resculpt possibilities, army builders...  Just a very rich film to yet tap for characters IMO.

However, we can indeed confirm that SA Stormtrooper versions of our heroes *are* finally coming as part of the EpIV wave along with some more surprises that will be revealed at Comic Con.

Very glad to finally see these done... now let's hope that they actually make Luke a little shorter than Han. ;)

Oooh, they confirmed old Ben?  Was that the evolutions set?  If he's part of the regular wave, I'm thrilled.  Do him right and I'll buy 5 or so for various shelf scenes:  I need him for the Cantina, his house (without cloak), the Falcon hold (without cloak), during the Tusken attack, and for a DS scene or 2.
Edit: just read the thread about cancelling the Evolutions in favor of single versions  8)

Title: Re: Legacy Wave ? - A New Hope
Post by: Brian on April 28, 2008, 09:48 AM
I'm glad to hear we'll finally be getting individually carded Han and Luke Stormtrooper figures.  I would guess that they will just be repaints of the Marvelized comic pack versions, or maybe headswaps that many of us did with the removable helmet Stormtrooper figure - but hopefully they'll address the scale issue if possible.  I'm in the boat with the rest of you, I really hope they aren't going the removable armor route - that never seems to work out quite right.  If they just repaint the comic pack versions, they probably could have put these in the repaint wave that's coming up and freed up a couple of spots - but I'm happy to see them regardless.  This wave is shaping up nicely with a new Obi-Wan, and now Stormtrooper Luke/Han.  Now let's get a SA Rebel Fleet Trooper as well :).
Title: Re: Legacy Wave ? - A New Hope
Post by: Daigo-Bah on April 28, 2008, 03:42 PM
I wonder if they'll dirty up the armor for the Stormie Luke and Han, to emulate the trash compactor scene.  I want them clean for other scenes, but then they won't look much different from the regular stormies.  Maybe they'll have some nice exclusive pack-ins like a better scaled Mouse droid or a piece of DS control panel.  I'm really hoping for the Praji or similarly-dressed black outfit Imperial officer in the wave, too.
Thinking more about the Ben, I realized that if they go the soft-goods route, they MUST use the fabric from Hermi Odle and not the typical cloak material.  Hermi's type responds perfectly to the water treatment and holds its shape, giving the appearance of weight.  Otherwise, I hope they give us the molded cloak version like that from the Spirit Ben of a couple years ago.

But the thing is, we shouldn't have to use water treatment in the first place. :P

I think they have a good idea with the Order 66 sets in putting wire in the cloaks. I think if they can expand on/improve that method then it could become a regular thing in future Jedi/Sith figures.

One of this week's Q and A answers had Hasbro confirming that the Han and Luke are based on their comic pack appearances, so there goes the new sculpt idea.  I'm not bummed as I think those are good sculpts, but they'll need to include some nice accessories to enhance perceived value.
Title: Re: Legacy Wave ? - A New Hope
Post by: Jesse James on May 12, 2008, 01:30 AM
Disappointed in Luke on the height thing.  He's clearly shorter than Han in every ST sequence, and I'd have been content with some shortened shins.  I'll likely shorten him myself, but it's just a tad annoying that they didn't.
Title: Re: Legacy Wave ? - A New Hope
Post by: Darth_Anton on May 12, 2008, 09:08 AM
The news really doesn't bother me. In fact, now I'm hoping to not get cool accessories since I already have those figures (in head swapped form.)
Title: Re: Legacy Wave ? - A New Hope
Post by: Daigo-Bah on May 22, 2008, 04:36 PM
Having recently upgraded my cantina diorama, I have a new excitement for cantina aliens and obscure humans in figure form.  So I can't help but feel a little disappointed that 2 slots of this single ANH wave are "wasted" on simple repaints that could have easily fit into the repaint wave.  Most of us either have the comic pack versions or have customized them for ourselves.  The trend seems to be 2 cantina aliens for each ANH wave, so now we'll have to wait a year or so to get another couple characters...
Title: Re: Legacy Wave ? - A New Hope
Post by: Jeff on June 11, 2008, 02:56 PM
From Curto's latest rumor list (http://www.rebelscum.com/story/front/New_Rumor_List_For_The_Legacy_Collection_115275.asp):

- Ben (Obi-Wan) Kenobi
- Brainiac (Cantina Patron)
- Captain Needa
- Han Solo (Stormtrooper disguise)
- Jawa & WED-15 Droid
- Luke Skywalker (Stormtrooper disguise)
- Spacetrooper
- Wioslea

If this is accurate, I'm pretty disappointed that Bom Vimdin is getting passed over AGAIN.  Don't get me wrong, I loves me some Mos Eisley aliens, so I'll gladly buy Brainiac and Wioslea, but I can't believe they haven't made Bom yet...  I've been waiting for him ever since he was in one of the original "Fan Choice" polls they did.   :-\
Title: Re: Legacy Wave ? - A New Hope
Post by: Jayson on June 11, 2008, 03:06 PM
Me too, hopefully they didn't get spooked by the pegwarming of M'iiyoom Onith & Elis Helrot. I wonder if Brainiac will include a bar piece or if they'll go the route of Hammerhead and Hem Dazon and go with the hightop table.

I'm equally disappointed in Bom Vimdin's being passed over it seems.  He's my most wanted alien at this point for certain.  I'm much more disappointed to see no Fleet Trooper listed though.  You'd think by now they'd want to get that out there.  They suck.

Oh, and why is Captain Needa on an A New Hope rumor list?  Perhaps a generic officer will be in his place?

Post by: Nicklab on June 11, 2008, 03:21 PM
They mentioned in the RS article that Needa's inclusion seemed odd.  And added that Commander Praji had been rumored for this wave.  Perhaps whoever generated this list confused Praji with Needa.
Title: Re: Legacy Wave 4 - A New Hope
Post by: Scott on June 11, 2008, 03:24 PM
I just want a black tuniced officer, if they call him Needa and his is black.  I don't care

The rest of the list is keen though, yeah I want Bom Vimdin but Braniac and Wioslea have been on my list for a long time
Title: Re: Legacy Wave 4 - A New Hope
Post by: Jeff on June 11, 2008, 03:24 PM
The "Needa should be Prajj" is a good theory...

Or maybe it's a case of "wave slippage"?  Maybe he was supposed to be in a future wave (like an ESB wave) but got stuck in this wave to get it to 8 figures so the B-a-D scheme worked correctly?  Just a guess...
Title: Re: Legacy Wave 4 - A New Hope
Post by: CHEWIE on June 11, 2008, 03:43 PM
Maybe they'll do a Needa in gray, and a variant in black.  Make us all happy Hasbro.   :)

As for Bom, I'd like to see him too... but I'll take new cantina aliens as they come. 

The WED droid and Wioslea are most welcome out of that list... hopefully Kenobi's a new sculpt?
Title: Re: Legacy Wave 4 - A New Hope
Post by: Brian on June 11, 2008, 04:28 PM
I'm a bit disappointed in the lack of Bom as well, but overall this list looks pretty spiffy to me.  I could see the Praji/Needa mix up as well, so maybe that is the case.  Even though many of us sort of customized the Han/Luke Stormtroopers, I'm kind of glad they are seeing release as well.  If it gets us a "definitive" Old Ben Kenobi, I'd be pretty happy.

What about the spacetrooper?  It'll be intresting to see what H comes up for this one, we don't get much of a view on them in the movie so I guess we'll just have to wait and see what H uses for reference material.
Title: Re: Legacy Wave 4 - A New Hope
Post by: David on June 11, 2008, 06:13 PM
Bom Vimdin's been on my list too, but Wioslea and Braniac have always been higher up so I'd be glad to see them. I hope we get the 'freakishly tall Jawa' in this wave. Overall, it's an excellent wave, although they're bound to mess up on Stormtrooper Luke's height. And I agree, the 'spacetrooper' is gonna be interesting.

And if we do get those two cantina dudes in this wave, my most wanted cantina freak will be Leesub Sirln.

Yeah, they Hasbro confirmed that we'll be getting the comic repack. I wish they'll just use the VOTC Stormy for the Han and the TAC Imperial Stormies (which is shorter) for Luke.

Post by: Darth Broem on June 12, 2008, 01:15 AM
Well I like each figure mentioned in the wave.  I will echo the same about Bom Vimdin and he has been mentioned in rumor lists forever it seems like.  I do not understand why they don't release him either?  But Brainiac, Wioslea, Spacetrooper, Praji, and WED-15 sounds great since they would all be new.  I will pick up Han and Luke in their Stormtrooper gear.  I am hoping the Ben Kenobi turns out good.  I just can't believe they would not throw in yet another Darth Vader.  I am hoping they don't of course.
Title: Re: Legacy Wave 4 - A New Hope
Post by: Daigo-Bah on June 12, 2008, 01:23 AM
Ok- two never-before-produced cantina figures (Wioslea is most known for buying Luke's speeder, but he's in the cantina as well) sounds good to me.  A resculpt Ben sounds GREAT to me!  A new Sandcrawler droid, and an Imperial officer?  Very nice, well-rounded wave.  I guess it makes sense that Han and Luke both show up in this wave, because you really gotta have both of them for the scene, but it would have been nice to get another cantina denizen instead.
Title: Re: Legacy Wave 4 - A New Hope
Post by: Darth_Anton on June 12, 2008, 09:17 AM
I really dig that list. To make the wave even cooler, I'd be nice if the Han and Luke were new sculpts with '08 Gree articulation.
Title: Re: Legacy Wave 4 - A New Hope
Post by: Daigo-Bah on June 12, 2008, 03:11 PM
POTF2.com is reporting that the wave DOES NOT have Needa, but rather has Trinto Duaba (the ghoul-looking guy with the hood) and a pack-in Dice Ibegon (the bloody tentacle face).  Ok!
Title: Re: Legacy Wave 4 - A New Hope
Post by: Jeff on June 12, 2008, 03:41 PM
That would be bitchin' on so many levels if true...  Four Mos Eisley Cantina Monsters - Brainiac, Wioslea, Trinto, and Dice - in one wave?  :o

I guess if that's the case, then I can forgive them ignoring Bom again...  but he better get his due in 2009! ;)
Title: Re: Legacy Wave 4 - A New Hope
Post by: Jesse James on June 12, 2008, 03:47 PM

But yeah, 4 Cantina schmucks is a nice round-out.  That's becoming one full shelf over the last couple years.  I used to keep duplicate figures in there some, but they're slowly getting pushed out here and there now.

You can really tell that Hasbro has a big plan for their license being renewed for so many years.  There are several considerably more recognizable cantina aliens needing to be made, and several resculpts too, so they go ahead and make these obscure guys now.  Making us wait with baited breath for a new Ponda or a Saurin or Yerka Mig.  Not that I'm complaining, mind you!

Four Cantina Monsters in the wave = confirmed (http://www.jedidefender.com/newspro/fullnews.cgi?newsid1214019289,50304,)   ;D

From Hasbro:
There will be *four* Cantina denizens in the wave this Fall, two of them coming in one pack. One of the characters will be Lak Sivrak's lover, which should be enough of a hint for you to be doubly excited.  

I still can't believe we're getting Dice as a pack-in.  Awesome!  :)
Title: Re: Legacy Wave 4 - A New Hope
Post by: Jesse James on June 21, 2008, 12:07 AM
4 Cantina guys is mind blowing really...  Dice as a pack-in is a no-brainer too, so I'm glad about that.

I liked seeing the Rebel Fleet Trooper back on Scum's rumor mill there the other day, but am bummed he's not an "immediate" figure I guess.  Just glad to see him listed though.

4 Cantina guys though...  excellent news for collectors.  Sounds more and more like Legacy may be pure us since CW and Legends/whatever are pure them.  That's potentially uber cool.

And here's also hoping that this is an 8 figure wave.  I'd hate to see an entire wave dominated by cantina aliens should this be a 6 figure wave.

Post by: Daigo-Bah on June 22, 2008, 12:53 AM
That would be my preference too, JOT- I'd rather a Lak resculpt over a new Trinto, since Lak is more visible and iconic than Trinto.  In fact, I don't think I even knew of Trinto's existence until recent years.  But yeah, before the bastard SE versions replaced Lak with the Pacithip (sp?), Lak was indeed the character across from Dice.

So, unless my math is wrong, we get three Cantina figures plus a pack-in fourth, plus three other guys for this wave? And we have already been told Stormie Luke, Stormie Han, and Old Ben are on the way correct? Guess that seals the wave.

Now the rumor mills are saying this wave is being bumped to Wave 5, with the Repaints/repacks wave being bumped to wave 4...

Let's hope that's the case.  I wasn't enthused with the idea of an ANH wave being dominated by cantina aliens.  I guess we'll find out more of the real deal at Comic Con next month.

BTW, if Brainiac is part of the wave, what do people think the name will be?  Is there some weird EU name for him?
Title: Re: Legacy Wave 5 - A New Hope
Post by: Daigo-Bah on June 24, 2008, 06:37 PM
Here's a Q and A based on this wave:

QUESTION:  We've been getting indications that there's an A NEW HOPE wave on the way as part of THE LEGACY COLLECTION later on this year.  And Hasbro has openly confirmed figures like Han Solo in Stormtrooper gear, previously mentioned Luke Skywalker in Stormtrooper gear, and hinted about a Commander Praji figure.  Will this wave be themed around A NEW HOPE as a whole, including things like Cantina characters along with Death Star or Rebel themed characters, or can we expect a more focused theme centering on a specific focus from within the movie?

ANSWER:  The wave will be focused generally on A New Hope and will include figures from various scenes, such as Luke and Han in Stormtrooper disguise, as well as several Cantina aliens and a few other tempting morsels.  It is a great wave and will also be late; while we were hoping for December on shelf, it may slip to January.  But trust us, it'll be worth the wait.

A few other tempting morsels?  Sounds like more than 6 figures when they put it that way.
Title: Re: Legacy Wave 5 - A New Hope
Post by: Greedo The Green Menace on June 24, 2008, 11:56 PM
July huh? Whew, gonna be a long wait for these guys but well worth it. And here i was kinda worried that we'd be getting barely any Cantina creatures this year. Fantastic sounding wave so far, I do hope it ends up being an 8 figure wave and includes that Jawa/ WED Treadwell droid from the rumor list too. That would be brilliant!

Post by: Darth Broem on June 26, 2008, 10:27 AM
Well I hope it pans out.  I am a big fan of the cantina figures.  I can not believe they put 4 out in one wave but apparently they will.  I am with others though that do want a Bom Vimdim, Saurin, and a resculpt of Lak Sivrak.  I wonder if they will ever repaint Duro with the brown jacket? 

The rest of the wave sounds great to.  If that droid comes with the Jawa that will just about take care of the droid lineup that Owen had to pick from in ANH right?  I mean we have R2-D2, C-3PO, LIN-V8K, R1-G4, R5-D4, and now the umbrella droid.  Is there any others from the line-up that I am missing? 

Personally I am glad to get Luke and Han in stormtrooper disguise.  I know you could pick up the comic packs but I will probably like single pack versions better especially if they correct Luke's height.  Of course the Kenobi sounds cool.  Finally we may have a decent ANH Kenobi to duel with the thousands of Vaders we have gotten over the past few years. 

I have always wanted that Spacetrooper as a figure.  I know it's just a stormtrooper with a backpack but I still want it!

They planned on addressing the height but the tooling was modified so we're getting the Comic Pack renditions but with better holster apparently...

Yakface/Hasbro QnA 5/9/08 (http://www.yakfaceforums.com/viewtopic.php?t=2987)
Q2: You confirmed/revealed for our friends at Galactic Hunter that SA versions of Luke and Han in Stormtrooper Disguise will be released in the EIV themed wave. Will these be simple head swap creations and will Luke be released on the smaller 2007 TAC #30 Imperial Stormtrooper body, you know because he is "a little short for a Stormtrooper"?

A2: The figures are based on their counterparts from the Comic Packs. We had actually designed the mid torso to be adjustable in production so you could get a normal or shorter version, but the manufacturer modified the tool model. We are however improving the belt/holster to better hold the Imperial blaster.

It might be.  look how often we've gotten Obi.  Change the head give him some new gear, amazingly add articulation and release.
They might change the colors on the Jawa, dirty him up more, different head just to make him "different."  new bandolier, bam you know the army builders will gobble them up.  Plus there were pretty tall Jawas as well they all weren't waist high to a human there were others that were at least to the shoulder.

What a wave! Counting the BAD astromechs, this is a 12 "figure" wave! This could be considered Hasbro's best wave ever, imo at least.

Haha just noticed they spelled Brainiac as "Brianiac". Also Wioslea has a lightsaber, did he get retconned into being a former Jedi or is that just another oops?

Just answered my own question, from "her" Wiki (http://starwars.wikia.com/wiki/Wioslea)...

Wioslea lived on Tatooine and wore simple robes very similar to a Jedi Knight's. She was once even accused of being a Jedi.

Spacetrooper- Finally, an Imperial sans Jango head! This looks like a simple, but great figure. Like his little grenade launcher. I wonder if that's a new sculpt? Either way, a definite buy.

Trinto & Dice Ibegon- AMAZING. Dice has been one of my favorite and most requested cantina aliens, and shes finally seeing plastic. A must buy.

Braniac- Looks pretty nice, love his cantina roundtable. Might buy it.

Wioslea- While this figure looks good, I'll pass.

Jawa & Treadwell- Another must buy. The Treadwell looks good and detailed, and the Jawa looks neat as well. Interesting looking backpack he's got.

Obi-Wan Kenobi- I think I'll replace my POTJ Old Ben with this one.

Luke & Han Stormtroopers- Pass.

I'm really surprised that the Jawa looks to be a completely new sculpt (with a huge ion blaster!).  Not sure if it's been mentioned in here, but Hasbro said in the show's press release that Old Ben's and Brainiac's tables would not be included.

Luke looks a little shortened in the torso...  I wonder if maybe they're going to make the pin in the ball/socket torso a little shorter to give him the shorter height?  It looks like the two torso halves are more compressed on Luke anyway.

Space Trooper is just insanely cool because he's got the actor's headsculpt underneath from photos and that rocks.  New gun too, very cool.

I like this wave in general, and I'd bet we see those tables someday soon.  ;)

I know that was Hasbro's initial intention (http://www.jedidefender.com/yabbse/index.php?topic=17095.msg376422#msg376422), but the factory apparently tweaked it and now doesn't have that feature. I wouldn't even mind if they delayed this wave to reincorporate the feature, just to give us an "accurate" Stormy Luke. Heck, they could even throw in a wet trash compactor head and the commlink from the TSC Garindan and we'd be golden.

Indeed. I can forsee this being a very expensive wave for me. I'm not going to be passing on anything in this wave. I really would like to get a squad or two of that spacetrooper and I think I may army build Han/Luke as well. With the helmets on they'll work great as regular stormtroopers.

So has Wioslea always been a Jedi? :P

Not a bad little wave at ALL there.  Not the best wave for me, that's still Wave 2 CW2D stuff, but a good wave regardless.  Very sharp looking figures, lots of articulation and goodness, and besides Luke's height everything seems fantastic.

Hasbro showed the saber with Wioslea at SDCC too (see link above for pic), so it's probably not Wal-Mart's fault but rather the fault of the Hasbro photo guy who has no idea who Wioslea is...  :P

Just as a side note on this wave, but I noticed that SSG got a more detailed answer to their previous question about the new Obi-Wan (it isn't just a VOTC repack).  Here's the details on its articulation:

Quote
A) Obi-Wan has ball and socket shoulders, elbows, knees, and ankles, along with swivel wrists and waist.

I'm sure there is head articulation which isn't mentioned here as well, but it sounds like a pretty good start to things.  Hopefully its the "ultimate" Old Ben we've been waiting for.

I have seen production stills that show Wioslea in the Cantina so she was there, just very hard to seee.  Perhaps on the other side of the bar, in the back.  Like where Kt'ik (mantis thing) was at, but the opposite side of the bar.

I hear you JOT I rather have a bunch of Jango clones running around my Empire the Joe Johnston clones running around in it.  Although it was kinda cool that Hasbro did that, I wonder what the card back will look like, hopefully not the micrscopic pic from the movie of the 2 watching the Falcon.

Looks like they may have modified a base Sandtrooper to accept a new backpack, and given him a new head & newish helmet.

It might be something new, look at the backs of clones.  We got the "deluxe" jet pack thingy clone, the #41 Antenae clone, Cody pack thing, Gree antenae, Scuba clone, all have different backs which in a way sucks cause none of them are interchangable which would've been cool like Joe's can wear each other gear.

I for one am glad the immortalized Joe Johnston.  He's one of my heroes, and he doesn't get nearly enough credit compared to McQuarrie.

3 Things that Johnston did that "made" Star Wars

1. He story-boarded and designed most of the Death Start Attack in ANH

2. He designed the Millenium Falcon!

3.  He freakin' hand painted the original Boba Fett costume!

Head to the front page to take a gander...  All 3 are pretty great looking figures so far, and all 3 come with nice accessories it seems.  Especially Trinto and Dice.  That's just cool getting a diminutive alien as the "accessory".  Doesn't look like any of the figures got shorted on articulation or whatnot either from the images we've seen before and now. 

I have no idea how to remember or even care about Brainiac's new name, so now he's still Brainiac. :)

Nice pics. I wonder if Wioslea shares any components with the new Obi-Wan? It looks like they could "cost out" this figure quite easily by only producing new hands, head and some paint while using the Obi-Wan body and robe.

What I find interesting is that Hasbro allocates funds and resources to articulating Dice Ibegon (and the new Rotta the Huttlet for that matter) but they leave out key articulation points (ball joint elbows & knees) off of figures that really need it.

Wioslea's head sculpt looks SO much better than that last hi-def pic, so I'm thrilled about that.  Seems like its mouth is less prominent than I thought, and the eyes look terrific.  I'm not sure I like Dice's upper tentacle limbs, but I suppose I can articulate them downward a bit to de-emphasize them.

Yup it's a damn fine wave of figures I think.  The Spacetrooper too, may be my favorite of it as an army builder, but I'm giddy for those Cantina guys just due to the sheer obscurity of them.  They're really all ones that weren't on my list.  If I get Bom Vimdin and Garrouf Lafoe out of the Cantina, I think I could die content with that "scene"'s figure creations.

Of course I'll take anything from it though...  But I'm to the point that I want humans, like Jabba's SE thugs, and more Jabba Aliens now since they're thin by comparison with "good" figures.

My most desired cantina denizens are those at the bar rather than in the booths.  If I had to rank them by what order I want them, I'd put the 2 Saurins near the top along with Garouf, Yerka, and a new Evazan and Ponda Baba.  But I'm biased because that's where my cantina diorama needs more figures!

Oh yeah...we definitely need a new and improved Ponda Baba and Dr Evazan. Along with Tarkin, Owen and Beru, they're the two characters with speaking parts (as much as Ponda Baba "spoke") in ANH that are the most in need of resculpts.

Damn...I also want those Saurins. And I always forget about the random astronauts in the bar. I think we need about 5 Cantina waves.

The Jawa is quite neat...  But that WED droid.  WOW is that a nice looking figure.  Best droid ever perhaps.  May even be dethroning FX-7 who was fantastic.  That's just nice figure work there.

That WED is insane.  Makes me really hope they resculpt the Beru treadwell eventually, with just as much attention.  The jawa looks good, but is it the same body as the last one?  Looks like the vest might be the same, only painted darker.  Very cool ion pistol, even though it's ENORMOUS  :o

If the Jawa is the same body as the last one, they did a fantastic job of making it look completely new.

A tremendous 2-pack.  The fact that we're getting these two figures in one basic figure package?  It's well worth the $7.99 price tag.

Brainiac now Pons Limbic? (http://www.walmart.com/catalog/product.do?product_id=10216430)

I guess so...  here's the quote from the latest Cantina Alien Update (http://starwars.com/movies/episode-iv/20081027.html?page=2) at the Official Site:

"He was never given a specific name until 1995, when he was dubbed Braniac, which according to lore is apparently just a nickname. His true name did not get assigned until 2008: Pons Limbic."

So yeah, he totally got "EU"ed.  I have to give that name retcon a big "LAME!"   :P

Title: Re: Legacy Wave 5 - A New Hope
Post by: evenflow on October 27, 2008, 09:51 PM
I would guess that they couldn't use Braniac becuase DC Comics has the rights to the name.

Looks legit to me. Maybe they "heard the cries" of collectors through the QnAs and decided to throw us a bone.

Post by: Brian on October 31, 2008, 08:50 AM
Definitely nice to see the tables apparently included again, that's a nice bonus.  This whole wave looks great to me, and I can't wait for them to hit.  Hopefully it won't be too long.  It just seems like its been such an OT-light year this year (with this really only being the 2nd wave of OT figures).  Now the question is if these still hit in 2008, or if it will be 2009.  I think this is "technically" considered 2009 Wave 1, correct?  Anyways, very nice looking wave.
Title: Re: Legacy Wave 5 - A New Hope
Post by: Nicklab on October 31, 2008, 09:07 AM
This wave will probably hit before Christmas.  Timing wise, wave 4 is just starting to hit.  So I think we can expect this wave to hit around the beginning of December.  What's going to determine whether this is 2008 wave 5 or 2009 wave 1 is the figure numbering scheme.  If we go back to BD01 or something to that effect, then it is in fact wave 1.  Regardless of when it ships.
Title: Re: Legacy Wave 5 - A New Hope
Post by: Darth_Anton on October 31, 2008, 09:12 AM
I certainly hope the tables are included after all. These images do look very promising.

EDIT:

The Han and Luke pictures aren't very promising on the table front. It looks like they have the old holsters in the carded samples. Could be wrong, we need a sharper pair of eyes.
Title: Re: Legacy Wave 5 - A New Hope
Post by: Daigo-Bah on October 31, 2008, 12:11 PM
Wow- those pics are great.  Brainiac is so 70s-riffic!  The inclusion of the tables is great too; I swear Hasbro has been paying attention lately!  I likely won't need the cantina tables since I made dio versions of them, so maybe we can work out a trade if someone is looking for several.
Title: Re: Legacy Wave 5 - A New Hope
Post by: Jesse James on October 31, 2008, 05:09 PM
I'm not gonna count on the tables yet.  These images are usually pretty early high-res shots from Hasbro I think, not factory samples or anything.  They've always appeared to be earlier prototypes anyway, to me.

I want that spacetrooper.  I'm pretty sure that gun is a new mold, looks like a real thumper.  Its pretty neat hasbro is giving us a little more variety in the arsenal.  I'm really excited about some build-a-mechs too.

Also, I'm not sure the droid parts are aligned the way they should be, I don't see which figure the body of the Red R2 is supposed to be with.  None of the pictures on JI have that piece.

Per the Yakface QnA (http://www.yakfaceforums.com/viewtopic.php?t=3873) this week:

In what will undoubtedly be well-received news for fans, we can confirm that the tables for both Obi-Wan and Pons Limbic are indeed shipping with
these characters after all.
  It turns out the the order to remove them (in an effort to contain costs on this wave) were given just prior to Comic
Con but were received too late as the factory had begun molding production pieces.  At that point, it made more sense to keep them rather than remove
them.  We are glad they are able to come out as they are really great accessory pieces.  Finally, on the holsters, they are in fact new in that
they fit the blasters better, with a recess at the back of the pouch.

POTF2 (http://potf2.com/potj/forums/topic.asp?TOPIC_ID=13461&whichpage=4) has some loose pics up of the Obi-Wan Kenobi from this wave.  Looks like he's new, and complete with ball jointed elbows, knees, ankles, etc.  Glad to see it isn't just a VOTC repackage or anything like that.
Title: Re: Legacy Wave 5 - A New Hope
Post by: Daigo-Bah on December 20, 2008, 12:27 AM
How long I've waited for a great Ben Kenobi...  the only thing I'm worried about is getting the cloak to sit properly on the figure, but I'm getting more of this one than any army builder in recent memory.  Here's what I need them for:
1) Tusken Raider attack diorama (replace the POTF2 CT version I have here)
2) Ben's house (replace the VOTC version)
3) Death Star corridors (don't have a Ben in this dio yet)
4) Millennium Falcon hold (have a POTJ version watching over Luke's training)
5) Docking Bay 94 (no Ben here yet, just a Luke and 3pO)
6) Cantina (I have a hybrid POTF2 CT with a POTJ head)
7) Streets of Mos Eisley (need one to go with the Wioslea from this wave)

The only one I'm keeping is the 25th anniversary saber duel version, which I like for the static fighting stance.  Wow, I'm going to have a lot of extra droid pieces!
Title: Re: Legacy Wave 5 - A New Hope

I'm glad it's not just me then. I'd been expecting this wave to show up sometime int the last few week. I don't thin that any of my local stores have stocked a case of anything SAGA related since well before Christmas. All the pegs around here are bare, save from a few Yarnas, Ak-Revs and a few Bails and Breas.

Hopefully we will se signs of this wave soon.

Post by: Jesse James on January 13, 2009, 09:35 PM
We've got a number of pegwarmers from that wave around here, namely the Organas...  I see the Clones and FX6 and others fairly frequent, so if you guys really need it just let me know and I will start looking.  We got that wave almost immediately after its release, which was great as it's left me with a couple months now anyway of being 100% caught up and not needing to look for ****.  It's a good feeling...

ANH wave is looming though, and man they look great.  I just hope the pegs are not littered with Legends and CW to the point they won't order much ANH.
Title: Re: Legacy Wave 5 - A New Hope
Post by: Diddly on January 13, 2009, 10:50 PM
At least you guys are getting something in... my stores haven't gotten in ANY basic figures, TLC or CW. Only Comic Packs. I can't even find ANY CW figures, all I ever see are the Organas and Yarna, and even those are sparse.

I'm hoping the stores just restock with an assload of Wave 5 and Wave 4. I too still need FX-6 but could live without ever seeing Waves 1-3 again.

Adam Pawlus mentioned on Galactic Hunter today that he's seen Wave 5 in the wild...  Target was the place, so time to start huntin' for new figures.  It's been like 2 months wtihout for me, so I'm pretty geeked to buy something new right now (and army build that Spacetrooper!).

I'm so thrilled to hear that, I've been waiting for news of the first sighting!  This wave seems like it will sell through very well, obscure cantina aliens included.  I've plans for about 5-6 Ben Kenobis, 1 or 2 Spacetroopers, 2 Jawas, and one each of the rest.  I might double up the cantina aliens since I have 2 cantina scenes made:

Post by: Scott on February 3, 2009, 12:58 AM
I just popped these babies open and I have to say every single one of them is lights out awesome. 

Luke is indeed shorter than Han...other than Luke's head sculpt sucking, it is good to finally get these out

I've wanted a Wioslea figure since around 1998 and they finally made it...she lacks some articulation but everything about her puts a smile on my face.  Her head alone is a work of absolute art

Trinto w/ pack in Dice is a nice combo platter and adds another Monster to the Mash

Brainiac has been another long time want of mine and he is perfect.  I absolutely love him and the bonus Cantina table is added icing

Old Ben is by far the star of the wave IMO and they really have made the world's most perfect 3-3/4" action figure.  I really can't say enough other than the odd neck peg which Jayson pointed out, it works on every single level.  The table is just another awesome bonus to the wave and the figure.  I've got to buy about 7 of this bad boy to replace each and every ANH Ben I have.

And I can't forget the Jawa and WED...holy **** both of them are great and the WED for being more or less a pack in is another work of art on par with the multi armed FX figures.  Love the gun and accessories on the Jawa too.

Spacetrooper is probably my least favorite of the wave and that isn't saying much because he is pretty damn awesome too and I love that they gave him Joe Johnston's face in a nod to complete movie accuracy

ABout my only beef of the wave is they gave us an AOTC droid over another ANH astromech like R2-A5 who is in the same scene as R5-A2

I'm so glad to hear that.  He's the one main character I've wanted re-done for so long, and despite being excited about him coming, the pics online haven't been stellar.  I've seen pics that didn't do the figure justice before, though.

Luke is indeed shorter than Han...other than Luke's head sculpt sucking, it is good to finally get these out

I've wanted a Wioslea figure since around 1998 and they finally made it...she lacks some articulation but everything about her puts a smile on my face.  Her head alone is a work of absolute art

Trinto w/ pack in Dice is a nice combo platter and adds another Monster to the Mash

Brainiac has been another long time want of mine and he is perfect.  I absolutely love him and the bonus Cantina table is added icing

Old Ben is by far the star of the wave IMO and they really have made the world's most perfect 3-3/4" action figure.  I really can't say enough other than the odd neck peg which Jayson pointed out, it works on every single level.  The table is just another awesome bonus to the wave and the figure.  I've got to buy about 7 of this bad boy to replace each and every ANH Ben I have.

And I can't forget the Jawa and WED...holy **** both of them are great and the WED for being more or less a pack in is another work of art on par with the multi armed FX figures.  Love the gun and accessories on the Jawa too.

Spacetrooper is probably my least favorite of the wave and that isn't saying much because he is pretty damn awesome too and I love that they gave him Joe Johnston's face in a nod to complete movie accuracy

ABout my only beef of the wave is they gave us an AOTC droid over another ANH astromech like R2-A5 who is in the same scene as R5-A2

This really is my all time favorite wave and I think Hasbro has been hitting a lot of home runs lately


I like hearing the old guys from this hobby fired up about it.  Makes me remember happier times.

Thanks for the mini reviews Scott.  I went ahead and ordered this wave from HTS this week, getting impatient for some more OT product :).  Glad to hear the strong reviews for the Obi-Wan figure.  That's a character that really needed an "ultimate" version, with the previous VOTC one coming up short.  Sounds like a great wave.  I agree with Jesse, its fun to hear the positive vibes for the Star Wars line lately.  Hasbro really has been doing a pretty good job lately it seems, and I hope it continues this year.

I love this wave. I found and opened the rest up yesterday and couldn't stop messing around with them.

Luke/Han Stormtrooper - Although I made my own, these are slightly better. While the modification to the holster is slight and not what I expected, it is actually a subtle and vast improvement. Also, it seems the legs on both of these are more solid than the TAC Stormtroopers.

Spacetrooper - Very cool, but it's a tad disappointing that it doesn't use the new holster, especially since he can use it more that the Luke and Han.

Jawa/Droid - this might be the figure/set of the wave. Both are just cool as all get out. What's weird is that the droid seems a tad too big whereas the droid with the previous Jawa seems a tad too small.

Ben - about as perfect a figure as you can make and hands down the ultimate "old" Ben.

Wiosia - well done, but are those legs from the concept Grevious figure?

Pons - previously commented on, well done.

Trinto/Dice - Again, nicely done, great sculpts and paint jobs. Some are going to complain about Trino's lack of ball jointed elbows, but that doesn't bother me.

BAD's - best BAD R units to date.

Thanks Jayson, I thought I remembered seeing an image of him scooting around a Tatooine city, I just thought it was from A New Hope (which would make sense, given what wave this is).

One more question about these astromechs, do we already know why they have an extra set of peg holes on the sides of the body?  The legs fit in there, but I can't think of a reason why you'd attach them at the bottom.
Title: Re: Legacy Wave 5 - A New Hope
Post by: Jeff on February 5, 2009, 10:03 PM
I can't think of a reason why you'd attach them at the bottom.

Because kids do crazy things with their toys?

Hasbro said at some point that the extra sockets on the Astrodroids were for "added playability" for the kids so that they can make their own custom droids.

Also, the fact that Hasbro took the time to put those extra sockets on there is part of the reason that there are some hints/rumors/speculation out there that we're getting some sort of "Droid Factory" playset in the future.
Title: Re: Legacy Wave 5 - A New Hope
Post by: Darby on February 5, 2009, 10:24 PM
After opening up this wave tonight, I have to say it is probably the best overall wave Hasbro has done in a long time.  An easy tie at least with TLC Wave 2, which was hands down the best ever.  With Dice, the Wed Droid and the 2 BAD's, you're getting 12 figures here.  That makes the pill of 7.50 (at Wally World) easier to swallow since it breaks down to roughly 5.00 a figure at that point (!) which of course is 1995 dollars.  Throw in the table accessories, and it's even better.  Plus the additions of the Wed droid (at last! And he's frickin' huge!) and the R5, both figs I wanted forever, and it makes a Kenner baby happy.  And whoever thought they would do Wioslea?  Much less Articulated?  And the Ben figure is a work of art.  Did I mention the Jawa?  And the Joe Johnson shout out?   ;D
Title: Re: Legacy Wave 5 - A New Hope
Post by: Jayson on February 5, 2009, 10:37 PM
After Ben, I think Wioslea is my favorite figure of this wave and maybe TLC thus far, despite not having knee articulation. She is just so damn weird looking and the holes in the hood for her antennae really show they can go that extra step when they want to. The letdown of this wave is the Trinto figure due to the horrid angle cut elbow articulation. Those forearms flop around like a nudist's dork while running down the beach. They could have allocated the budget to giving him proper arms instead of making 6 posable/removable arms for Dice.
Title: Re: Legacy Wave 5 - A New Hope
Post by: Jesse James on February 5, 2009, 10:38 PM
I hope we get some generic droid parts like the old droid factory.  Lame as it sounds I'd probably enjoy that...  I liked the old set and would love putting all these droids into a single scene type thing, actually.  Or at least some of the random extra droids that don't really have a 'theme" shelf to go onto.

I've got to agree with people here. Ben was the fig I thought maybe I could save a couple of bucks and not buy, but it is a great Ben fig. No way can you pass it up (even if you don't care about completing the BAD).

Definitely puts things in perspective with the price increase, this is a great wave that I have all but Han and Luke now... probably can't force myself to get those even at $5 each, but we'll see.

The thing about Ben is that he is SO great, he's totally upped my excitement for the Ep1 and Ep2 Bens that are coming later this year.  Since all three were supposed to be in an Evolutions pack together, I'm really hoping that the other two versions turn out as great as the Ep4 version did. :)

Post by: Force Guy on February 7, 2009, 01:44 AM
Plus the additions of the Wed droid (at last! And he's frickin' huge!)

He's huge alright, but standing next to the other droids such as the Treadwell droid, he almost seems too big.  Nice figure though.  I really like Dice.  He's nice, especially for the price.
Title: Re: Legacy Wave 5 - A New Hope
Post by: Darby on February 7, 2009, 08:56 AM
Yeah, the WED droid is almost certainly oversized, but he's a nice figure.  And the Spacetrooper I like more and more; they appear to have resculpted the torso to accomodate the backpack, and it looks and sits better than the previous 2004 version.  With the better leg stance, overall it's a much better version of the Vintage Stormtrooper.

Post by: Jesse James on February 9, 2009, 02:21 AM
Some random thoughts on the wave...

-Han and Luke...  Don't have 'em yet, so no comments I guess. :)  To me they're the least interesting as they're really just replacing outdated figures, so I'll happily take them for that purpose but the Stormtrooper isn't anything I'm unfamiliar with so I'm just anxious to get them to complete R5.  he's nifty.

-Wioslea...  what a freak.  This is one of the cooler Cantina freaks I think.  The leg articulation is a little disappointing, but the figure is overally very well sculpted.  I wonder if the body isn't going to resurface for a Jedi at some point?  Cool blaster, and I like that the cloak is sewn just for Wioslea to fit her giant noggin'.

-Brainiac...  Cool looking figure, and here's why;  He looks like a "western gambler" to me.  Does he look like that to anyone else?  He has the crossdraw holster and sort of a spiffy dapper looking outfit.  Like he's the Doc HOliday of the Cantina, ya know?  I wonder if he dates a chick called "Big nose"? :)

-Pruney Alien Guy...  I dig him the same as Brainiac...  It's like he looks like a gunslinger, kind of on the order of Clint Eastwood with the hood and the low slung holster.  I just like the way these two characters from the Cantina have that wild west look to them...  Maybe it's just to me.

Also I love the Cantina table...  Very cool accessory.

-Tubey alien accessory...  I'm forgetting names because it's 2 am here and I want to go to bed, but she's awesome.  The articulation is fantastic on this "accessory", and she's even big/bulky ultimately.  I love it, and it's very freaky looking in the midst of the other aliens.

-Spacetrooper...  Super articulated, and just the right accessories.  The blaster looks like a grenade launcher and is super detailed, and the backpack and hose fit very snugly to the helmet and back.  The Johnston headsculpt is a neat "trivia" detail and makes for a cool trooper.  I'm hoping to build a nice team of these, but not a lot...  I'll curtail my Spacetrooper army to 12 or so maybe.

-BAD Figures...  R5 I've yet to complete but he's one of my fav background droids in the OT, so I'm excited to get him eventually here since I've wanted him as a basic figure for a while.  The R2 though, is insanely colorful and detailed, and I have no clue where he's from in the movies.  I'm very happy to have him complete and looking great...  I just don't know where to put him.  I think for now he's going on the shelf with the Rebel Pilots and extra astromechs.

I just got this case on Friday and man is it good! This actually resparked my interest, I was losing it a bit to Joe. I am so happy to get this much OTC goodness in one shot. I am also really excited about the next wave, Wedge X-Wing and the Rancor, anything OTC has me pumped.

This Wave reminds me of TAC wave 5, the entire Wave was great with no real stinkers. The Han & Look are nothing special but it's nice to get non comic versions.

Every wave should be this good!

Also I love the Cantina table...  Very cool accessory.

I couldn't agree more.  I wish they'd have put more of them in the wave...  It'd be nice to get some chairs and more stuff like this at some point.

Is the distillery still on tap for somewhere down the road?
Title: Re: Legacy Wave 5 - A New Hope
Post by: Jesse James on February 9, 2009, 02:09 PM
I hope...  On the chairs and the distillery/dispenser thingie both.  I love the table and wish that stuff like this, and other background pieces (small ones) were made available.  I know I'd not buy a pack of stands, but if they offered 10 tables in a set on Hasbro's toy shop site, I'd buy it.  Or a mix of maybe Scanner Tech boxes in different colors, some Cantina tables, maybe some laddeers for with ships, etc.  I'd buy a box of basically pack-in junk if they offered it.

I love this wave though...  I'm that much more geeked about the ESB wave, and thank you Jeff/Jayson for the image locking in who the droid is...  I see that's E2, so oh well.  I don't know what to do with the droid now, but he'll probably still go to a Rebel Pilot I think.  I love the colors so he's too good to just be an E2 shelf filler.

Post by: Brian on February 11, 2009, 09:20 AM
I got a chance to open these up over the past couple days, and I have to agree with what everyone else has been saying here - this is one of the best waves Hasbro has produced in the modern line.  The Cantina aliens are all well done, the Han/Luke Stormtrooper combo is finally released, and we finally have an "ultimate" Old Ben figure.  Plus, the Spacetrooper is pretty cool, and its always nice to add another Jawa to the ranks.  Some of the best surprises of this wave to me were the droids.  The WED droid with the Jawa is really well done I think, and I really like the BADs for this wave (the R2 in particular is pretty spiffy looking with that paint job I thought).  I'm really happy with this wave overall though, and it makes me really look forward to the rest of the year.  Hopefully, even with the success of Clone Wars, the Legacy Collection will still keep going strong as well.

Post by: Diddly on February 11, 2009, 05:54 PM
Finally spotted this wave today at WM. No Spacetrooper. I picked up Ben, Cantina 2 pack (forgot the name), and the Jawa. Would have snagged Wioslea and Brainiac but I was already spending $25 on three figures and couldn't afford anymore at the moment. As much as I like this wave I might have to skip Han and Luke. I already have the Comic Pack versions anyway I could easily repaint... we'll wait and see if there are any price drops soon.
Title: Re: Legacy Wave 5 - A New Hope
Post by: Darth_Anton on February 12, 2009, 09:22 AM

These hit the Minneapolis area in a big way just this week.  Still not warming pegs, but stores are starting to get multiple cases in which is a good sign.  I'd give it another week or two before we start seeing extras of just about everything.  I think the Jawa will continue to be the hardest to track down.

The Spacetrooper seems to be the most scarce of the bunch.  One by one I've been able to track down everything else in the wave, from the new figures to the repacks with the wave 5 droid parts.  Wioslea seems to linger the longest. 

Today I finally scored the Luke and Trinto Duaba with Dice Ibegon.  The only thing I'm missing at this point is the Spacetrooper.  But they'll show up at some point.
Title: Re: Legacy Wave 5 - A New Hope
Post by: JediJman on March 3, 2009, 02:02 AM
I've actually seen the spacetrooper almost every time I've found this wave (about ten times now).  I've even found him sitting with just Luke or Han and no aliens, which I find very odd.  The hardes one to get around my area is the Jawa by far.
Title: Re: Legacy Wave 5 - A New Hope
Post by: Darth_Anton on March 2, 2009, 11:23 PM
In the old days, I'd never have seen the Spacetrooper after 8:05am. However, nobody's hitting stores at opening anymore, so when I'm taking a break and hit a store or two, I'm still seeing the entire wave when it's stocked that day.

I received my three Obi-Wans from Hasbro's online store.  What an awesome figure!  Truly the ultimate Old Ben Kenobi.

I'm displaying two in my BMF Falcon, one on the chair while Luke trains and the other in the cockpit (until I get a good ESB Han and Hoth Leia that can sit down).  The cloaks are nice and will most likely go on the AOTC Obi-Wans I purchase later in the year...the pics so far don't seem to have him wearing one.

Title: Re: Legacy Wave 5 - A New Hope
Post by: Matt_Fury on March 11, 2009, 02:10 AM
I think it was a cool idea by Hasbro to make the neck a separate piece to keep from having a poor paintjob (see evolutions ROTS Anakin), but it obviously is not perfect.

I think the "droopy neck" can happen if you aren't carevul about removing the rubber bands in the packaging.
Title: Re: Legacy Wave 5 - A New Hope

I think the neck's separate for greater range of motion more than anything...  Kenobi's old and a little stooped over in many scenes.  It's possible to avoid the floppy neck if you either cut the bands holding the figure in (carefully with fine point scissors), or to remove the table first and other areas the band is wrapped around the figure, and remove it around the neck last... 

I got another tonight and see how it's stretching it out in the packaging, but mostly it occurs trying to remove the figure from the package.  I'd suggest the first route of simply cutting the band, rather than "ripping the figure free" from his package.  Just some advice from me for what it's worth.  Mine came out fine tonight with out needing neck viagara.

I think the reason for the loose neck is because Hasbro reused the VOTC Obi-Wan torso for the new one and didn't want to modify the sculpt with a new "standard" neck peg.

Good catch.

So far, I've still only seen remnants at 3 different stores, once each.  This wave is taking forever to roll-out, and/or is selling like crazy.  Despite this, I'm only wanting about 3 more Ben Kenobis and I'll consider myself done with the wave.

Just editing with a couple pics from this wave.

I found them all finally at a Wal-Mart and snagged them.  There was only 1 Spacetrooper though.  Luke has been surprisingly hard for me to find to though.  All the rest of the wave I can find with regularity now.  Brainiac/Limbic seems to be the easiest to locate here.

Would anybody by any chance have the R2-L3 parts that come with the Cantina guys (everything but the left leg) for sale?  I finally started picking up this wave due to a 15% off sale at Fred Meyer, and I don't particularly want the Cantina guys if I can get the droid parts another way.  Thanks!

Has anyone noticed that Luke and Han both have different sculpts to their belts, for their bomb things to attach to said belt?  It's a really odd construction/design, and it's totally different for both, and I think both are different from the Sandtrooper with removable bomb belt, as well.

It's a very odd thing to resculpt...  I'm trying to think of a reason, and can't come up with one.

Technically Luke's belt shouldn't have the bomb at all, actually.

Yeah, the belts are new sculpts.  Hasbro said they re-tooled the belts to fix/improve the holsters, that's why both belts are different from the old Sandtrooper version.  They also hinted they were sculpted differently because there are intending different re-use possibilities for each one (but I have no idea what those are).

Hmmm, interesting.

Han's, I believe it is (I forget now) has the bomb come off and it leaves a peg on the belt.  Luke's however has a removable bomb ala the Sandtrooper, but a little more sturdy (the bomb has a lip on it so it sort of snaps into the hole on the belt better).  Odd they'd make two different belts... 

And the Spacetrooper's bomb is molded to the belt and not very detailed.However his arms bend at sharper angles I've noticed, and hold his belt in a resting pose pretty neat.

I just know that my Luke's belt canister stays on really snug while Han's belt canister falls off if you stare at it. Kind of annoying.

Isn't that belt the same as the old VOTC and TAC stormtrooper belt?

I *finally* found this wave and must say that the jawa/droid pack is awesome!  The droid is huge and is a steal carded as a 2-pack.  (single carded ewok, anyone?)

They could have released this as one of those WM Droid Factory 2-packs for $11 and I would have happily bought it.
