Title: Legacy Wave 9 - Return of the Jedi
Post by: Rune Haako on April 4, 2008, 10:18 PM

SSG: Regarding Luke Jedi in his Death Star 2 look, the only basic figure of this is from 5 years ago, is preposed, has an action gimmick with floppy arms, and a likeness somewhere between "caveman" and "Harpo Marx". That despite Luke DS2 being the only OT main character figure in the last Fans' Choice poll's top 25 - 10 of the 14 figures above him are made or confirmed, as well as 4 of the 9 figures beneath. Hasbro's past answer on this matter was "theming issues, it may be a while, hang in there," yet since the 2003 DS2 Luke figure there have been 7 ROTJ waves and 2 Vintage-style lines with ROTJ figures; as well as 4 more Luke Jedi with Jabba's Palace outfits and Toy Fair has shown yet another ROTJ wave, this time with a Jabba's Palace-styled Luke Jedi from a deleted scene; and the previous new Luke Jedi figure could have fit the bill with its removable vest and outer belt yet was designed specifically against making it into DS2 Luke. Fans want Luke DS2, most of the other Fans' Choice poll results have been made or confirmed, Hasbro's had several opportunities, now we have sandstorm Luke coming - a deleted scene figure - over Luke DS2 which is baffling. So what's the full story here, why no Luke Jedi DS2 yet again? When can collectors finally get the last main OT character's significant costume yet to be done as an action figure?

Hasbro: We chose the deleted Sandstorm theme to bind several core characters together. We had long planned to do both versions, but the Sandstorm scene came first in rotation because of our desire for the new Han and Chewie, so a new Death Star II Luke was slotted into the next Episode VI wave. We are pleased to announce that if our schedule holds, you will see the next Episode VI wave in late Spring 2009.

That's good news, but I'm more excited to hear that there will be another ROTJ wave and a chance for other characters like SA Ackbar or some skiff guards to be made.

Always good to hear about a ROTJ, glad there will be one next year.

Post by: David on April 5, 2008, 01:28 PM
Okay, now that this thread is about the entire wave, here's my idea of a perfect ROTJ wave (and Luke). I'd like to see a mix of Jabba's Palace/Endor, and hopefully we'll also finally get an Ackbar resculpt.

1. Admiral Ackbar (new, SA)
2. Nien Nunb (new, SA)
3. Sim Aloo
4. Ars Dangor
5. Yoxgit
6. Gammorrean Guard (new, SA)
7. Slave Leia (new, SA) CONFIRMED
8. and Luke CONFIRMED

EDIT: I just remembered a Slave Leia resculpt was confirmed, so she'll probably be in this wave as well. I also put in an SA Gammorrean Guard, how could I have forgotten? :o

Post by: Diddly on April 5, 2008, 06:02 PM
Here's the wave I'd like to see. No obscure aliens for me since we're getting some in Legacy Wave 1.

1. Admiral Ackbar - SA with either tech equipment or part of his big ass chair
2. Slave Leia - SA with chain
3. Wicket - near SA resculpt (similar to the 30AC Ewoks)
4. The Emperor - Evolutions with new neutral expression head w/ cane and force lightning hands; don't call him Palpatine either
5. Admiral Piett - resculpt; give it Jerjerrod articulation with ball jointed knees/ankles and I'll be happy
6. Emperor's Royal Guard - ROTS rerelease with staff instead of rifle; maybe give him a removable helmet and unique headsculpt?
7. Mon Mothma - I think it's about time for a new ROTJ version
8. and Luke, which will apparently be SA; I'd give him handcuffs too

And there's my idea of a 'perfect' ROTJ wave. I know a lot of people would differ in opinion but this is something I'd like to see since it covers a lot of characters we haven't seen on shelves since 1997.

Post by: jedi_master_sal on April 5, 2008, 09:31 PM
Sticking with the 8 figure wave theme, here are my wants for this wave:

SA Gamorrean Guard
SA Luke (of course)
SA Admiral Piett w/removable hat (really I'd like this to be an SA Imperial officer of varying ranks. Lt.; Cmdr.; Capt.; Admiral-This can easily be acheived by having a small hole where the rank "pips" go, then during a running change, the factory workers can just glue in the new rank pin into the hole. With a running head swap as well, this could garner us plenty of different Imperial officers of varying rank.
SA Rebel General-first start with Lando, have him come with his signature cape, then for a running change switch to Madine sans cape, then a couple of the other generals in the scene. All four would share the same card and all four faces would be on the card. So Hasbro would save money in printing there as well.
SA AT-ST driver with removable helmet, blaster and standard Imperial cap (so we can choose to make him a scanning crew member if we like)
SA Endor Rebel soldier. I didn't like the previous one too much due to lack of articulation.
Scout trooper with Rebel old guys head, removable helmet (not this visor crap for the old guy!)
SA Weequay or Nikto or Barada skiff guard

That's a fair mix of Jabba's palace, Rebels, Imperials. It has one main character in Luke, and if you count the running changes, then Lando and to a lesser degree Madine.

Title: Re: Legacy Wave ? - Return of the Jedi (2009)
Post by: Scott on April 6, 2008, 09:44 AM
I think since the last one was predominatly Jabba's Palace the next one will be Endor/DSII

So, in my dreams it will be this:


Luke Skywalker DSII
Princess Leia (Ewok Village)
Wicket and Paploo Resculpts
Sim Aloo
Nien Nunb
Admiral Ackbar
Lando Calrissian (Ewok Celebration)
Emperor Palpatine (Non-crap Version) w/ Throne
Title: Re: Legacy Wave ? - Return of the Jedi (2009)
Post by: Darth_Anton on April 6, 2008, 09:51 AM
I agree that a new Ackbar is in order.

My ideal wave would go something like...

DSII Luke
Ackbar - new
Jerjerrod - new
Nein Numb - new
Klatuu - Jabba's Palace
Nikto - variant outfit
Title: Re: Legacy Wave ? - Return of the Jedi (2009)
Post by: evenflow on April 6, 2008, 10:48 AM
Ok so after some thought, he is my hope / guesses for the 2008 wave:

1. DSII Luke
2. Nein Numb
3. Sim Aloo
4. Wooof
5. Slave Leia
6. Wicket
7. Weequay
8. Emperor
Title: Re: Legacy Wave ? - Return of the Jedi (2009)

YAY!

1. DSII Luke
2. Admiral Ackbar- New, SA
3. Slave Leia- New, SA
4. Stormtrooper- VOTC re-pack
5. Wicket & Random Ewok- New
6. Klaatu- New, SA

Post by: Brian on April 7, 2008, 09:37 AM
This is great news.  I really hope that this is the "end all, be all" Luke that we've been waiting for.  There's actually quite a few figures (and resculpts) that I'd like to see from ROTJ - and everyone here has great suggestions.  Going by the rumors/confirmations of both Luke and the Slave Leia - here's a wave I'd like to see:

SA Death Star II Jedi Luke Skywalker
Princess Leia (Slave Outfit) - resculpt
Admiral Ackbar - resculpt
Gamorrean Guard - resculpt
Nien Nunb - resculpt
Wicket/Paploo 2 pack - resculpts
Emperor Palpatine w/Throne - resculpt (or using parts of the Evolutions version)
Sim Aloo

There's still quite a bit from ROTJ that I'd like to see, but I'd be pretty happy with this lineup.  Lots of resculpts I guess, but many of those POTF2 figures have started looking dated to me.
Title: Re: Legacy Wave ? - Return of the Jedi (2009)
Post by: Darth Broem on April 7, 2008, 02:22 PM
Cool lists but we all know another Vader will have to be thrown into the mix with a Jedi Duel Luke.  I would guess the Emperor as well.  If they do I hope they add a throne chair for him.  Sim Aloo would be a great addition as well. 
Title: Re: Legacy Wave ? - Return of the Jedi (2009)
Post by: Daigo-Bah on April 16, 2008, 12:12 AM
Love to see the Wicket/Paploo requests.  That's a no-brainer; both are small stature and would be perfect as a 2-pack.  Give them articulation like the recent ewok set, and BAM!  Also, I NEED a B-Wing pilot, red, and human.
Title: Re: Legacy Wave ? - Return of the Jedi (2009)
Post by: Nicklab on April 16, 2008, 12:46 AM
Hmmm.  Let's see what I can think of for a decent ROTJ 8 figure wave.

-Luke Skywalker - Death Star 2 duel
-Emporer Palpatine - new sculpt, SA, softgoods, cane, force lightning
-AT-ST Driver - SA, removable helmet
-Nien Nunb - SA, removable cap
-Paploo & Wicket 2-pack
-Wooof - Vintage Klaatu
-Geezum - Jabba's Palace Snivian
-Weequay - Skiff Master
Title: Re: Legacy Wave ? - Return of the Jedi (2009)
Post by: Ben on April 16, 2008, 03:04 AM
DS II Luke (SA)
Wicket/Paploo 2-pack
Logray/Teebo 2-pack
Gamorrean Guard (SA)
Nien Nunb  (SA)
Weequay (SA)
Admiral Ackbar

I doubt they'll do two Ewok 2-packs in the same wave, so one of those can be swapped for an all-new Endor Rebel Soldier.
Title: Re: Legacy Wave ? - Return of the Jedi (2009)

DS II Luke (SA)
Wicket/Paploo 2-pack (new Sculpts)
Gamorrean Guard (SA)
Weequay (SA)
Admiral Ackbar (SA)
Nien Nunb (SA)
Y-Wing Pilot

in one of hasbro's Q-A, I think they said that they would do an new Rebel Commando in the next ROTJ wave

Post by: P-Siddy on April 17, 2008, 09:30 AM
Hopefully, some of these guys will make it.

Sim Aloo/Ars Dangor/Sate Pestage
Piett (new likeness)
Skiff Master Weequay
Vedain
Grizz Frix
Wicket/Paploo

It sounds like a new Malakili (Rancor Keeper) (http://www.sandtroopers.com/smf/index.php?topic=8437.msg199694#msg199694) will be part of this wave... 

Interesting - not something I've seen a lot of people requesting, but I'm sure I'll buy him just the same. 
Title: Re: Legacy Wave ? - Return of the Jedi (2009)
Post by: Diddly on August 1, 2008, 09:33 PM
Sounds good to me, and makes sense now that we're getting the ROTJ Rancor. Like Jeff said though, it's not my most requested figure, but I'll take it.
Title: Re: Legacy Wave ? - Return of the Jedi (2009)
Post by: Jayson on August 1, 2008, 10:00 PM
Seems like as good a time as any since the Rancor Keeper is one of the handful of figures from the 90s era that has yet to see a resculpt in the past few years.
Title: Re: Legacy Wave ? - Return of the Jedi (2009)
Post by: David on August 1, 2008, 10:20 PM
Cool, I'll take it. Let's have the green Nikto guy that was in that scene with him, too, please! :)
Title: Re: Legacy Wave ? - Return of the Jedi (2009)
Post by: Jesse James on August 2, 2008, 02:44 AM
I could've lived without a new Rancor Keeper, but at the same time I don't mind a resculpt.  The first one's not terribly accurate in sculpt (kind of like Piett, it lacks some detail to the likeness mostly) and deco could certainly use sprucing up.  There's about 500 other figures I'd want resculpted first, but eh...  With the new Rancor coming it makes sense I guess.
Title: Re: Legacy Wave ? - Return of the Jedi (2009)
Post by: Daigo-Bah on August 2, 2008, 11:17 AM
I feel the same way, and I'm thinking Hasbro wouldn't have the cajones to release a new Malakili in this wave and not a new Palace Klaatu in the same wave.  So they can prevent the attacks with pitchforks by making sure Klaatu is in the wave too!
Title: Re: Legacy Wave ? - Return of the Jedi (2009)
Post by: Scott on August 2, 2008, 11:42 AM
Well so far...based on Q&A rumors

Return of the Jedi (Spring 2009 Wave 3?)

Luke Skywalker (Death Star II)
Princess Leia of some sort
Malakili
Ewok 2 Pack (Wicket, Paploo or Teebo to be included)

And with good cause.  When I was in Tucson, AZ for a few years, I also saw Malakili sitting around for quite some time.  The only figures I've seen in stores longer are 8D8 and the Ugnaughts, but there is one good thing about this announcement.  If Hasbro will make a new version of Malakili, we are now at a point where there is absolutely nothing in the realm of action figures that would be considered unreasonable, unlikely, or too risky to bring back for the basic carded figure line.

I'd be okay with a new Wicket because he's the most relevant ewok to the plot and because the old one is so bad.  I'd be a little bit less okay, but still okay with a new Paploo since the old one is speeder-bike specific.  But we definitely don't need a new Teebo.

Also, if any ROTJ wave is going to have resculpts in it, the Gammorean Guard and Admiral Ackbar had better be two of them.
Title: Re: Legacy Wave ? - Return of the Jedi (2009)
Post by: Dressel Rebel on August 2, 2008, 01:29 PM
For me the 2 most important would be an SA Endor Rebel and and SA generic Dresselian.

Anything else is gravy, could never hurt to make more ewoks.  Ackbar and Nien Numb SA would be stellar as well.
Title: Re: Legacy Wave ? - Return of the Jedi (2009)
Post by: David on August 2, 2008, 01:59 PM
Princess Leia of some sort

I'm pretty sure this is a Slave Leia resculpt.

So what else do I want from RotJ now that half of the wave (if it has eight figures) has been confirmed? Probably something like this:

Admiral Ackbar (new, SA)
Sim Aloo
Gamorrean Guard (new, SA)
Geezum

I'd be cool with either of those, and you're right that a SA Endor Rebel should be a top priority. And while I'd love a new Dresselian figure, I doubt Hasbro considers it so important.

Title: 2009 Return of the Rancor Keeper!
Post by: JACKOFTRADZE on August 4, 2008, 09:57 AM
Pegwarmers rejoice, you will have company soon!

From the Jawa's Q&A:

2)  There was previous mention by Hasbro of a ROTJ style Rancor based on the recent TFU Target exclusive Rancor mold. Is this still coming, and will it come with a newly sculpted Malakili, the Rancor Keeper? This figure is long overdue for an update and packing him in with the Rancor seems to be the best way to prevent him from pegwarming.

By now, you have seen the Rancor based on the new TFU mold (with new molded parts for EpVI).  He (she?) will come with Luke, but we can confirm that a new Malakili will be coming in 2009 in the EpVI wave.


Yakface, Skiff Guards, Gammoreaons, Ree-Yees so many great characters that need updates. The Rancor Keeper, in my opinion, still holds up enough. I find this an odd choice to have on the short list given his ghastly peg warming status of years past. While I welcome any new OTC offerings, I am not saying "YES!" to myself for this figure confirmation.

Thoughts?

When they finally do produce Klaatu, I hope they give him the fabric "loincloth" skirt/wrap like the vintage figure had - none of that limiting plastic shite.

The repaint I gave to Yakface makes him sufficient for me in terms of resculpt need, and I've never felt the Gamorreans were poorly done.  The weequays though could desperately use a resculpt.

Post by: Adam_Pawlus on August 5, 2008, 09:21 PM
The Gamorreans weren't *bad*, but some added articulation in the arms and two non-fist hands would be nice.  I'd also like to see the pike weapon they use when Luke chokes the pair of them at the gates, or maybe a different pose more like in the publicity shots.

...but yeah, the Rancor Keeper is an interesting choice.  The only reason I could see to do it is because there's an easy repaint in there-- Flailos from the arena in the Clone Wars cartoons.  Which, while I admit is stupid, is something I would run out and push people out of the way to get.  (I LOVE the realistic toys based on the show.  Get me a Dulok from #21 and I'd probably break an international law or two.)
Title: Re: Legacy Wave ? - Return of the Jedi (2009)
Post by: Jayson on August 5, 2008, 09:25 PM
For me, the Yakface is alright, though I wouldn't might a rework similar to how they transitioned the Momaw Nadan figure from POTF2 to TSC. Though some soft good would be nice upgrade perhaps.

Adam, I total agree on the Pig Guard. The arms are in need of a major rework for the pike holding ability. Hope that'll be taken into consideration.
Title: Re: Legacy Wave ? - Return of the Jedi (2009)
Post by: Brian on August 6, 2008, 09:27 AM
Although the POTF2 Gamorrean Guard isn't too bad of a figure overall, its one that I've always looked forward to being redone.  Part of it might be that it was one of the first vintage figures I can remember buying, so I've always liked them, but I also think it would be one of those re-dos that we'd be surprised how much better they could do these days.  There have been a few figures the past couple years that we've said "the POTF2 one is good enough", and then we're really surprised how much better they can do now.  I think the Guard would be a great update, and one I hope we see before too long.
Title: Re: Legacy Wave ? - Return of the Jedi (2009)
Post by: Darth_Anton on August 6, 2008, 09:37 AM
I could get behind the Gamorian Guard as well. Weequey too. All of those POTF2 one should get a resculpt - but not necessarily before we get a Jabba's palace Klaatu.
Title: Re: Legacy Wave ? - Return of the Jedi (2009)
Post by: Scott on August 6, 2008, 11:41 PM
I think the following resculpts are needed from POTF2 (and while Malikali is a dumb choice, he did need a resculpt):

Ackbar
Nein Nunb
Gam Guard
Orimarrko
Weequay
AT-ST Driver
Ree Yees

Outside of Ree Yees though, almost every one of those guys was a HUGE pegwarmer, I mean gigantic...I think they finally worked through a lot of the case ratio issues that plagued the line for a lot of years but still, I think they are gunshy of these guys for that reason

I have to take issue with you there, brother. I wouldn't call something released in overly obscene amounts a pegwarmer so much as a huge marketing screw-up on Kenner's part. The only reason these guys "pegwarmed" back in the day was because Kenner went from solid cases of them in '97 on the green cards to more solid cases of them in '98 with the freeze frames while the '97 figures were still plentiful. More than a case ration problem, it was a matter of "people will want to buy all the old figures again now that they have slides, let's make twice as many!"

Prune Face was certainly a casualty of that mess, but being a new figure in '98, I never saw him on a peg until the deep discount of 2000 that cleared out all the old crud (alongside Mon Mothma, Lobot, and Prisoner Chewie.)

ReeYees barely saw a peg. A very few cases made it to retail but the majority of those figures were sold via the Fan Club.

I'd note the AT-ST driver is an army builder and if done right I think he'd move really well at this point.  Lots of demand for that one...  Sure he pegwarmed back when, but so did other steaming piles regardless of what character they were.  AT-ST Driver would do good today I think.

I personally think any of those could do well today in that waves are so crammed together anymore and demand just seems higher today than 97, 98, etc.  Those were fun times in one way, but in another the line was really screwed up on various levels.  From the sculpting, to the articulation/playability of the toys, to the mass glut of stuff we were getting, and so on. 

Nothing sucked quite like 2002 though.

Jesse, how close is the AT-ST driver to the Imperial Scanning Tech in terms of outfit? Could a base figure be created to essentially give us both characters?

I Wholeheartedly agree with that. It's the only year since 91' I stopped collecting.

I think the following resculpts are needed from POTF2 (and while Malikali is a dumb choice, he did need a resculpt):

Ackbar
Nein Nunb

Adding Yakface to that list and I would say that's who really does need a resculpt. I think times were different back then and some of those would move better now especially the Gammoreans and AT-ST drivers.

The Rancor Keeper is someone I can still see warming the pegs. I have a theory that Hasbro must have got the vibe that the last Rancor Keeper was sold (at some backwater drug store in the middle of nowhere). Thinking that it would jinx the Star Wars line if there was not one out at retail, they had to make another to take the mantle of King Pegwarmer. It's like living with a pain for so long you get used to it and cannot live without it.

It's debatable which figure in the SW line is truly king of the pegwarmers: Xizor or the Rancor Keeper. This would make a great thread if there has not been one like this yet.

The repaint I gave to Yakface makes him sufficient for me in terms of resculpt need, and I've never felt the Gamorreans were poorly done.  The weequays though could desperately use a resculpt.

Nice paint job! If Hasbro reissued that figure with that level of detail I could live with him again.

Except for the gloves on AT-ST Driver, they are essentially the same. The basic outfit was used on a variety of crewmen throughout the OT including the Rebel Hangar tech. In fact the X-Wing pilot orange outfit looks to be the same as well, unfortunately I've never seen a pic without the flak vest to verify that. It makes me wonder though if we'll be seeing the body of the tech that comes with the Yavin Hangar pack re-used down the road for an AT-ST Driver or Imp Scanning Tech.

Nothing sucked quite like 2002 though.

Yeah at least the figures from 97-98 were on clearance for a buck and a lot of them made for good custom fodder....

In fact the X-Wing pilot orange outfit looks to be the same as well, unfortunately I've never seen a pic without the flak vest to verify that. It makes me wonder though if we'll be seeing the body of the tech that comes with the Yavin Hangar pack re-used down the road for an AT-ST Driver or Imp Scanning Tech.

If the did re-visit the At-St Driver, at least hat-wise (to double as a Tech,) they could get away with doing a Veers, where the helmet fits over a hat. Don't know what to do about the gloves though.

What about the coloring between the techs and the at-st drivers, weren't the tech a lighter grey?  maybe as far as the gloves go they could do like how they did w/ROTS Dooku and his hands.  Make them "popable" and they could be sleeves or they could be gloves.  They could just give them the Luke comic pack hat and the Han at-st helmet. 

It's probably asking alot but with the 30AC pack-in stuff we got this year this would hardly be anything, just a new figure that they're going to make eventually.  And instead of labeling it as Imperial Technician or AT-ST Driver they just label it as something like Imperial Personnel and give a good background on them on the card.

Way sorry I'm waking up now from my daydream  ::)

I desperately want all-new Wicket and Logray sculpts. These are the two most needed Ewoks in the galaxy. Paploo would be cool after that.

I wonder if they'll update Teebo... Do we want them to? It's still a great figure, but is he terribly out of scale? I can't recall if he was any bigger than other Ewoks? I can't find a Databank entry for him either. Looks like they've been updating the site.
Title: Re: Legacy Wave ? - Return of the Jedi (2009)
Post by: Jesse James on August 9, 2008, 06:16 PM
By comparison, he's massive at this point.  Chief CHirpa was a big Ewok and he's now diminutive, and dwarfed by Teebo...  As nice as Teebo is, he could use a resculpt IMO.  I'm not hopeful we'll see it soon due to his figure being more recent, but Teebo is way too big.

Excellent point.  I think the reason we've got lists that are chock full of resculpt requests is due to a few factors.

-First, so many characters have already been made into figures.  We're getting to a point in the line where we're starting to run out of all new characters that have never been made into figures.  I think Hasbro might be holding off to a degree just to have some characters in reserve for the future.  Perhaps this mindset has unconciously made it's way into the collecting community?  But if we were to start talking about Jabba's palace denizens who have yet to be made, the list of named characters with reasonable screen time is dwindling.

-Scene specific versions of characters are another factor.  People want good versions of X character in Y setting.  And I think to some that might translate as a resculpt. 

-The improving figure aesthetic.  Let's face it:  a figure like the Weequay which originally came out around 1997 looks pretty crude next to a 2007 figure.  Between the sculpt and the articulation, the 10 year old sculpt looks pretty bad in comparison with current offerings, and collectors want something better for certain characters.  Hasbro has found a way to get us to come back for more of the same character by improving the quality of their product.


As for my own list?  It's really more of a list of what I think we would get in this wave rather than what I would want if I was planning the line.  Call it pragmatism winning over idealism.

It's debatable which figure in the SW line is truly king of the pegwarmers: Xizor or the Rancor Keeper. This would make a great thread if there has not been one like this yet.

Moff Jerjerrod, hands down.  Although Xixor and the Rancor Keeper were pretty bad, I have NEVER seen a figure warm pegs as long as Jerjerrod has.  To make it worse, I saw both Xixor and the Rancor Keeper on clearance for as low as a dollar each, and every WM I have been to within 100 miles of my home has between 10-30 Jerjerrods, all at full price to this day. 

I really think they should have put the Rancor Keeper in the set with the Rancor itself instead of Luke, and just rerelease the Luke figure as part of the Saga Legends line.  But hey, this way Jerjerrod won't be so lonely come 2009. :)
Title: Re: Legacy Wave ? - Return of the Jedi (2009)
Post by: Daigo-Bah on August 10, 2008, 12:50 PM
That would certainly have been a good selling point for the Rancor since the sculpt was so recently used for the FU version.  But I didn't buy that one, and I will buy the upcoming ROTJ one.  I guess they shouldn't ever include completely brand new sculpts as pack-ins.

Maybe Hasbro should make a "Legendary Pegwarmers" battle pack, to include Jerjerrod, the Rancor Keeper among others.

Title: Re: Legacy Wave 7 - Return of the Jedi
Post by: Brian on December 8, 2008, 10:31 AM
Just looking back at past Q and A's, don't we have the following confirmed for this (8 figure) wave so far?

New Jedi Luke Skywalker
New Leia of some sort
New Ewok of some sort
New Rancor Keeper
WooofNikto

So what else do you think is on the way for this wave?  I wouldn't mind seeing an all-new Nien Nunb as has been mentioned, and a new Ackbar would be sweet too.  There's a lot of other resculpts I wouldn't mind seeing as well ("ultimate" Endor Soldier/Logray/Wicket/Prune Face/Ree-Yees/etc.), but there's some other all-new characters that could go in this wave as well.

Post by: Nicklab on December 8, 2008, 03:00 PM
I don't think we're likely to get a new Endor Rebel in the next year.  We get the Hoth rebel in the spring.  MAYBE a new Rebel Fleet Trooper in the fall or early in 2010.  And perhaps a new Endor rebel in late 2010/early 2011.  I think Hasbro is trying to space these out to keep the interest going.

Post by: JACKOFTRADZE on December 8, 2008, 05:16 PM
Ackbar & Nien Numb are both really need resculpts. I prefer Ackbar first....
I not too jazzed about another Luke Jedi at this point, the sandstorm one really filled my void for DS Luke. However they can make him look different enough to warrant one. Here are my picks:

New Jedi Luke Skywalker (New Head/Chest with open vest)
Darth Vader Final Duel
Admiral Ackbar
Gammorean Guard
New Ewok 2pk
Slave Leia Sandstorm
New Rancor Keeper
Nikto

I agree...  Plus they just futzed around not long ago with the Endor Rebel.  Just thinking out loud about what I'd like but not expecting it.  I'm happier actually about the Hoth and Fleet Troopers...  Much worse figures to me than the Endor Trooper, though I do think the POTF2 styled one really would be a nice new figure if they whipped one up.
Title: Re: Legacy Wave 7 - Return of the Jedi
Post by: Daigo-Bah on December 8, 2008, 07:46 PM
The next time they make an Endor rebel trooper, I really think it should be a resculpt of the original POTF2 version, with the full camo pattern, not the vest guys.  But wouldn't it be a cooler idea if they released a new Prune Face with alternate non-eyepatch headsculpt and cloak colors?  It could be like the running change to the Imperial technician or previous Endor trooper.

Just thinking about this wave and one figure I wouldn't mind seeing eventually in a ROTJ wave is a new Spirit of Yoda.  Granted, there are a number of new characters and resculpted figures I'd like to see first, but after the new Spirit of Obi in the OTC Collection and the new Spirit of Anakin in the TAC line, I wouldn't mind seeing Yoda get a new treatment as well.  I suppose this would be a good candidate for a repaint wave, but it doesn't sound like we're getting one of those next year.

I thought I remembered there being a rumor at one time that one of the UBPs this year was supposed to be a Funeral Pyre/End Celebration theme with all three spirit figures and the Pyre with Vader.  I think the other rumored one was ANH/Death Star themed, so that rumor seemed to be way off (I think this was at RS, if I remember correctly).

Anyways, it might be a nice figure to include at some point.  Although there are still new figures to include, there's a part of me that wants a number of resculpts from this movie now as well (Ackbar, Nunb, Prune Face, "ultimate" Endor soldier, ewoks, etc.)

I'd be all for a new Spirit Yoda based of of the VOTC Yoda followed by a Spirit of Obi-Wan based on the upcoming ANH wave sculpt and reuse the TAC Spirit Anakin robe to keep the "spirit look" consistent.

3. New Slave Leia (with alternative Torso!)
4. Ewok 2pack
5. B-Wing Pilot
6. Major Panno (Pruneface Rebel-Alien)
7. Klaatu Skiff Guard (Warrior Outfit)
8. Malakili
9. Nikto Skiff Guard


It lists 9 figures, but it's entirely possible that the Scout Trooper is a Greatest Hits figure that's filling out the case.

3. New Slave Leia (with alternative Torso!) - Bigger boobs for the alternate top would be nice.
4. Ewok 2pack - Sweet!
5. B-Wing Pilot - Cool, but been there done that.
6. Major Panno (Pruneface Rebel-Alien) - Finally I can get rid of the POTF2 one.
7. Klaatu Skiff Guard (Warrior Outfit) - SWEETNESS!
8. Malakili - - SWEETNESS in a Yarna pegwarming way.
9. Nikto Skiff Guard - SWEETNESS!

This rumor/retail list just popped up this morning regarding the ROTJ wave....


1. Scout Trooper (VTSC-06)
2. Luke Skywalker (Death Star 2)
3. New Slave Leia (with alternative Torso!)
4. Ewok 2pack
5. B-Wing Pilot
6. Major Panno (Pruneface Rebel-Alien)
7. Klaatu Skiff Guard (Warrior Outfit)
8. Malakili
9. Nikto Skiff Guard


I don't know about Malakili, but otherwise, great wave.

Skiff Guards are long overdue for sure.

I got a confirmation on this wave indirectly from a retailer.  So I guess the Sullustan will be the B-Wing pilot.

Post by: Daigo-Bah on January 17, 2009, 11:59 AM
My take on the alternate torso is similar to the Dagobah Luke: 2 poses necessary to recreate the scenes.  So I think one will allow her to recline somewhat.  The B-Wing pilot being a Sullustan is disappointing if true; they could have single carded the human pilot and I'd have bought several.  As it is, I already painted my white Sullustan red.  I'm most excited about the new Prune Face- he'll be added to my briefing scene diorama.

I was going to say the same thing, the other torso will be for reclining Leia

Post by: Darby on January 18, 2009, 11:38 AM
Of all the POTF2 figs that need new sculpts, I wouldn't rate Prune Face and the Rancor Keeper high among them, so this is a little disappointing.  And why not just do Nien Numb if you're going to do a red B Wing pilot?  The Leia is interesting, as are the Ewoks and Skiff Guards.  My hopes for the Ewoks are either Paploo/Wicket, or the two dudes who jacked the chicken walker.  Always wanted those.
Title: Re: Legacy Wave 8 - Return of the Jedi

This wave has been confirmed in the latest Insider

Ewoks are Paploo & NoApaak

Nikto is the Sail Barge gunner version
Ten Nunb is indeed included in his red flight suit

I'm EXTREMELY happy about the Nikto; even though he comes with the deck rail gun (which was used by the yellow padded vest Nikto that we got back in the POTF2 cinema scene) it appears that this one is actually the sculpt of the never-before-made Nysad pictured here:

Great expectative for new Malakili, this toy should come with removable hood, tunic over waist, vibro blade, and a chain to pull the rancor, like gentle giant statue.

Action figures are evolving, hope this Malikili won´t be shorter and smaller than potf2 one.

I think he should be smaller and about the same height as the recent TAC Jedi Knight Luke. That the POTF2 version of Malikili one seemed oversized to me.

Brian already linked it JP. 

She looks nicely articulated...  The hips look a little odd, but given the design of the character, I'm pleased with how it turned out.  It's nice to have an articulated bikini Leia since she wasn't lazing around all the time. :)  The swappable posed legs are another "borrowed" idea from the 1:18 military figures...  The last couple waves included pre-posed legs for kneeling or sitting positions.  It's a neat idea, but not something I'm keen on for all figures.  It works well for Leia though, and her awkward lounging pose with Jabba.

Title: Re: Legacy Wave 9 - Return of the Jedi
Post by: Rob on July 7, 2009, 08:22 PM
The Ewoks look good.  I'm still a little disappointed that they've gone generic with using the same body over and over again, but if it helps us get more ewoks and they can make them different enough through their accessories, I guess I'm for it.
Title: Re: Legacy Wave 9 - Return of the Jedi
Post by: Jesse James on July 7, 2009, 08:37 PM
When you think about it, they were pretty generic looking in the movie though.  Some height differences, but otherwise only a few "stood out".  Logray, Teebo, Wicket, and Chief Chirpa had slightly different builds, but the randoms like Lumat, Paploo, etc., all basically looked the same.

I'm especially ok with it for the more obscure ones like that new one with the pitch fork weapon. 
Title: Re: Legacy Wave 9 - Return of the Jedi
Post by: dustin baetz on July 14, 2009, 07:27 AM
I'll buy as many Ewoks using that body as they care to make.

Since they're not likely to top the last removable-helmet Vader any time soon, I'd like to see Emperor's Wrath Vader re-done with the VOTC sculpt.  Also, a resculpted hand to hold the staff properly would turn the ROTS Royal Guard into an ideal ROTJ Royal Guard.

The A-Wing Fighter and the Evolutions set with Ten Numb and the B-Wing Pilot are almost singlehandedly responsible for rekindling my interest in Star Wars figures.  There are just so many characters from Home One and the second Death Star that need to be made or re-made.  Sometimes I wonder if the battle above Endor and the search for Shmi Skywalker hold such a mystique for me just because Hasbro hardly ever makes figures representing them (though on both counts they've done an outstanding job catching up this year).

Given the number of figures already announced for this wave, I think I'll continue to toss and turn at night awaiting Mon Mothma, Nien Nunb, Sim Aloo, a Y-Wing Pilot, Ackbar, Ackbar painted brown wearing a hat (AKA Mon Calamari Officers), the spirits of Yoda and Sebastian Shaw and the Emperor's Throne.

Rancor keeper is going to be the second coming of the POTF2 days of peg warmers. He may beat Yarna. Do not get me wrong He looks great, I am buying him as I ditched my old one a few months ago when Hasbro Confirmed him. But he should have been packed with the Rancor. I like the Luke, you can tell he is an assembled paint master so I am sure he will tighter in production.

This is probably the best wave of figures in a long time. I'll gladly pick up one of each. Prune Face and the Skiff Guards have me super excited!

Post by: Brian on July 22, 2009, 08:49 PM
Yeah, this wave looks pretty sweet overall.  I'm looking forward to some better looks at the Luke, but hopefully it ends up being the one we've all been waiting for.  Although it might be a pegwarmer once again, that Rancor Keeper does look spiffy.  It really is amazing what improvements can be made compared to the POTF2 versions these days.  It makes me look forward to seeing the Gam. Guard on the way in 2010.  Anyways, back to this wave, it looks really great.  Actually, everything we have seen looks nice, should be a fun (and expensive) rest of 2009.

I'd take even a chunk of the barge just to attach it to, as like an elaborate stand.

I love the Green dude, I love the Nikto...  I love the Leia (articulated, yay!), I love the Sullustant Pilot...

I really, truly, dig the Dresellian Commando though.  Where's Dressel_Rebel at?  He's gotta love that as much as I do.  I've wanted him updated for eons.  :)  He's a real surprise.  I'm wondering how long Orrimarko's head variant/redeco on this body is though.  We're bound to get that too I think.

Oh, and Malikili is a very worthy update...  I'm sort of surprised, but this guy's got repegwarmer all over him I'm afraid.  I'll buy him happily to go with the new Rancor though.  Nice update, though I wasn't clamoring for him at all.

Present.

And I love me some of that dresselian, of course.  Definitely going to go ape on that one.  I haven't seen a really clear picture yet, but his cloak looks soft-goods-ish to me.  Can't really tell for sure.  I also want to see a closeup of his slug-firing weapon, Dresselians don't use lasers except for the ones they pick up from the stormies they bump off.

In my imagination-EU, Nien was all suited up and ready to get in his B-Wing when Lando strolled over and said, "Hey - my pal Han is gonna let me take the Falcon... you wanna ride with me?"  

To which, Nien uttered his trademark giggle-garble talk and said, "Let's roll, Dude!"  He ditched the B-Wing gear, put on his best co-pilot vest and hat and that's that.

He's actually "Nutz Numb", which everyone in the starfleet makes fun of him because his name in the phone book is, "Numb, Nutz" and it pisses him off.

Sadly, he died at Endor.  The laughing finally stopped.

Unless there is something going on with the light, they still look like two different Sullustan masks to me. Nien Numb has a  darker color to his skin and his eyes and mouth are both a little more closed. And the lips look different. I'll happily take this figures as an accurate Red Sullustan B-Winger, and leave it at that. Hopefully we'll get a resculpt Nien Numb at some point.

I think I read somewhere that, Nien Nunb was B-Wing Pilot supose to be filmed in the cockpit of the b-wing fighter in DS2 Battle, Like Wedge, Green Leader etc. was supose to have a call sign but Lucas wanted Lando to have a co-pilot, so they used Nien Nunb and took the gear off and put a extra Han vest on. and now he have Nien Nunb we know today.
Title: Re: Legacy Wave 9 - Return of the Jedi

In my imagination-EU, Nien was all suited up and ready to get in his B-Wing when Lando strolled over and said, "Hey - my pal Han is gonna let me take the Falcon... you wanna ride with me?"  

Hasbro confirmed this theory in the presentation

I think there's something goofy about it.  I think it's the broadness of the shoulders / the size of the arms.

What I'd really like to see is one with a nice cloak, soft goods, with a wire in it... one that looks like he did when he first strolled into Jabba's palace.
Title: Re: Legacy Wave 9 - Return of the Jedi
Post by: Jesse James on July 28, 2009, 10:05 PM
I like the shoulders only because every image of Luke I've seen has him pretty broad shouldered looking due to the outfit's snugness.  It was pretty form-fitting IIRC. 

I don't think the head is perfect, but I think it's very good.  I blame most "issues" I have with it on the paintjob, which is a hand-painted proto anyway, so no worries.  The factor figure will most likely look different by a bit.  Hopefully different better.

The sculpt I'm perfectly fine with though.  I liked that figure when it was released with the softgoods robes on it.  I agree with Rob, I'd like to see him come with a softgoods outer cloak someday, along with the under robes, so we had a good Jabba's Palace Luke too that was complete with maybe two hands, perhaps three.

Likewise I'd enjoy seeing him redone then as Endor Luke...

This figure seems very good for DS2 Luke though.  I'm quite pleased.  Love that he has the binders for pop to force-undo for him too.  Nice touch.

After looking at the various photos out there for the DS Luke, I'm beginning to wonder what are we actually getting? In the SDCC display, Hasbro showed the figure with the binders and the alternate chest flap at his feet. The presentation photo shows him with the binders and now a lightsaber, but no extra chest flap. Finally, the poster (http://www.jedidefender.com/gallery/imageFolio.cgi?action=view&link=Conventions/San_Diego_Comic_Con_2009/Hasbro/2009_Presentation&image=21.jpg&img=16&tt=) shows him with the binders, no lightsaber and what looks like the soft good portion of his tunic most notably below his waist and to some extent around his neck. So, I'm back to the original question - what are we actually getting?

Well, looks like my answer has come to the above question as JediInsider posted (http://jediinsider.com/index.php?catid=8&itemid=12052) carded shots of this wave. So, I guess this next question is why the hell did they choose the ANH portrait to use on the card back? Seems like a odd/bad choice considering the figure.

I have to respectfully disagree with ya, JJ- I thought he was quite narrow-shouldered throughout.  I like this concept figure drawing Cramer from RS doodled based on a film image:

Got to agree with Rob on this one. The ball jointed chest is what's throwing this figure off. In order to accommodate for that joint and the arm joints it bulked him up. I am not a fan of that joint on Star Wars figures, it limit there use for customs and sometimes, with this being one of them, messed the aesthetics up.

Did he even fly a B-wing in the movies?

I believe he is seen in the Rebel Briefing scene as wearing the B-Wing Pilot gear

It thought that the guy in the briefing is supposed to be a different Sullustan entirely? I think someone mad a mistake on the name plate.

Many moons ago I was told that the white-suited pilot Sullustian is a prototype costume, not used in the movie, and the red one was the real movie version of Ten Numb.   White Ten was in the Chronicles book and made it into the toy line and comics... so now it's the "real" one.

Apparently someone changed their minds along the way.

It's a nice figure, without a doubt. But the removable chest piece is kinda pushing it. It does make sense why Hasbro would do this, without it, they would have most likely have to make a completely new figure. But it's good, and we collectors can finally get our hands on a new DS II Luke. Ever since that pathetic "Saga" caveman version...

The Slave Leia is also quite impressive. Very nice, Hasbro.

However, this wave seems more collector-oriented. Kids most likely don't know who's half the characters in this wave. Heck, neither do I!

Clicky Images to Check 'em Out!

This, to me, may be one of Hasbro's best figures ever IMO.  Taking a page from the last waves of military figures out there, they came up with including a set of pre-posed limbs as an accessory.  21st Cent. Toys put those in with their last waves of figures so they could sit prone and things, and it really was an innovative way to help collectors display their stuff.

It's certainly incentive for me to buy this figure twice.  Shrewd Hasbro, shrewd!

Post by: iFett on August 13, 2009, 08:30 PM
Why the inclusion of the cup?  Hasbro's been very stingy lately on extras so I would have thought the molded legs with pillow and stick would have been plenty.  Not complaining though.  Looks nice, but the gaps in her waist line looks very funky in the "real" action figure version.
Title: Re: Legacy Wave 9 - Return of the Jedi
Post by: Matt_Fury on August 13, 2009, 10:40 PM
I think they meant all along to just make the reclining version, but knew it would be unpopular as an imposable statue.  They thought out of the box and came up with an interesting idea on how to give a poseable figure and a pre-posed one at the same time.
Title: Re: Legacy Wave 9 - Return of the Jedi
Post by: Nicklab on August 13, 2009, 10:46 PM
This isn't unprecedented.  We saw this back in the OTC line, when Hasbro offered Dagobah Luke with the handstand arms & head as well as the backpack arms and head.

As for the cup, that belongs to Jabba.  I watched ROTJ the other night, and he's holding in the Sail Barge scenes.

The dual posing is cool, but at the sacrifice of the sculpt? That's the worst likeness since the POTF2 Leia, IMO, which as we all know is really saying something.
Title: Re: Legacy Wave 9 - Return of the Jedi
Post by: Daigo-Bah on August 14, 2009, 01:07 AM
I have no problems with the likeness, but those arms, wow... I'd be afraid of her in a dark alley!  In this case (and perhaps in any bare arms character) I would have rathered swivel-cut elbows and swivel shoulders.
Title: Re: Legacy Wave 9 - Return of the Jedi
Post by: Jesse James on August 14, 2009, 01:23 AM
I think we saw Hasbro, at the time of the OTC line, mimicing (again) 21st's line, to acheive the versatility needed for the two iconic poses (since super articulation was still a rarity)...  At the time 21st Cent. Toys included two sets of arms only.  Hasbro was JUST starting to adopt the new methods for manufacturing figures so that they would actually be capable of doing the removable limb thing, easily, at that time.  It was still actually fairly uncommon in the line to have a torso even capable of that.

Now flash forward the latter waves of the military line, and they took their idea to a new level by adding legs for figures that benefited from prone poses due to their accessories or intent (artillery, MG teams, etc.), and a new lower body design overall with the latter couple waves produced.  And again Hasbro uses the same idea/designs to great extent by knocking out Leia's probably most iconic "lounging" pose which is pretty tough to acheive with articulation, but still giving fans that extra articulated set of legs so they make that "definitive" Leia (3rd time's the charm I guess).  It's a first figure and I'm curious if it'll lead to any others.  Luke didn't really give way to others.

I love it, and to me it's miles superior to the Dagobah Luke.  Luke looked good but was ultimately still a statue (definitely a figure I'd like to see delivered with super articulation) any way you sliced it.  Leia delivers both styles.  For me this is what I always asked for from the 2002-ish era, with the extreme posing...  Having both "styles" makes me actually appreciate my old 2002 Jedi a little bit more than I did in 2002.  Now that I know I've got a suitable Luminara Unduli for all seasons, for instance, my 2002 figure doesn't look quite so bad...  Almost a little artistic looking.

On the likeness, I liked it too, actually.   :-[  The POTJ Deluxe is nice, but I think this looks superior to me...  I'm probably more forgiving on human likeness issues though, so I tend to overlook them if they're not too bad.   I liked VTSC Luke Bespin for instance.  Didn't care for the deco, but I thought the sculpt was there and just needed a better skin tone (like Ceremony Luke as well).

I think the ball joint elbows and shoulders look OK, I'll always take them over swivel cut joints -- I can't stand the way they fall apart.

The face sculpt is pretty decent, but could still be better.  Compare to the POTJ/OTC version:

Post by: Carpeteria3000 on August 14, 2009, 12:34 PM
POTJ is way more accurate. And not just in the face sculpt. If I saw just the heads, I would never assume the newer sculpt was supposed to be Carrie Fisher. POTJ pulls it of, I think, despite it being slightly more cartoonish. The new one is a good sculpt as far as a human likeness, but not very accurate as far as a Carrie Fisher likeness. But maybe that's just me....

Post by: JACKOFTRADZE on August 14, 2009, 01:54 PM
It's not just you.
While I really love the new Slave Leia I have to agree the POTJ sculpt looks more like Carrie. Another fine testament to the POTJ line. I wrote about that line in one of Brian's thread. It set the bar in terns of quality. While the articulation is limited just take a look at Tessek, he still looks great.

Hasbro also gave Leia a boob job with the new sculpt.......

I definitely will buy a few to make some custom Slave Girls including Mara Jade.

Really another nice wave overall, definitely looking forward to it.  There doesn't seem to be a stinker in the bunch, and it is nice to get those very well done versions of Luke and Leia.  Some of the figures that might tend to be overlooked in a wave liked this, like the already mentioned Major Panno - as well as the Jabba goons - might be the best ones of the wave.  Really like the looks of all of these.

I was only planning on picking up a single Panno but after seeing the loose pic, along with Dressel's pics, I want several. I also want a crapload of Nikto Gunners. I'm only planning on getting one Giran for now because I can't tell if he has any articulated legs or ankles. The only stinker of the wave appears to be Nein Numb, only because he's an uninspired kitbash.

I'm kinda leaning negatively with Luke, but not enough that I'd clamor for a resculpt (not yet anyway).  I like it...  Or at least I like it enough to be content with him for now.  Would I take a new one down the road?  Probably, but I like the removable chest thing, I think this figure's innovative...  I think the skin tone looks odd, but it's better than Ceremony Luke's sickly coloring.

I dunno.  I'm easier to please with human likenesses...  They're tough sculpts to get right.  I think Hasbro was cutting some corners with the arms and things, but I'm pleased with it.  It'll do where I currently have NOTHING that will "do" on that spot on the shelf.

I like NEIN NUMMMMMB too! :)

Sorry, that was for my own amusement.

Wow, what a great wave of figures. I ordered x3 Leias from another seller but i am really tempted to buy some of these. I have x2 cases on preorder from BBTS but they have not even gotten the TPM wave in yet. As I said in other threads I will be shocked if Hasbro can get all of these waves out before years end.
I will be picking up a few Girans, Niktos and Prunies to make customs.

Like many others I found the Luke odd from the get go. The articulated torso is what is making this figure look off. Some of the added articulation in recent figures (Ball jointed hip and waists) hurt the figure more than they help. It also limits their custom potential. The AOTC Obi-Wan looks a bit frumpy because of the ball jointed hips and it's too moves too tight/ in an indexed fashion. I am not a fan and really do not want to see that kind of articulation become common. I am very happy the new TPM Obi Wan does not have ball jointed hips. The Luke head sculpt looks good so that is a plus.

Received a few of these loose of Ebay today. Giran and Nikto are spectacular, was surprised to see knee joints on Giran, although the sculpt leaves them a little superfluous. Major Panno is pretty solid too, just wish he had been given a holster and somewhere to put the comlink. Leia is a little disappointing, especially the paint apps on the separate torso. Very sloppy work there. Wish I had pics to share, but if you guys have questions, let us know  :) Didn't get the others from this ave, just these 4.

I just got notified my two cases are in stock. I just checked the site, low and behold they have them in right now including full cases. As some of us worried all of these are coming at once. My Paypal accounts just got it's ass beat this week:

TPM Wave Case of 12
Gungans x5
Ambush on Vultures Claw BP
Target Geo Packs from Amazon (x17 packs)
MOTU Classics Webstor x3
ROTJ Wave Case of 12 x2

FYI - I will be selling/Trading some extras when everything arrives next week. Check my trad list next week. FYI2 - I will determine which guys I am getting rid of after I review them, I have no idea at this point. I am in overload right now.

I just got notice that my set is in stock (or, in my "Pile of Loot") at BBTS as well.  Excited to get this wave, but the credit card is going to be fun this month with both the TPM and ROTJ waves on there (as well as a handful of DCUC figures).  It is nice to see some new TLC figures finally, but this whole 40 figures in 3-4 months (plus exclusives) is getting old from the budgeting point of view.

Amen to that. While I have saved cash for all this stuff this week has been so brutal. Do not get me wrong I want to buy it but wish it was spread out so I can enjoy it. Most of this stuff will not get the attention with the glut pile. I really hope next year is not like this.

Could this be a Q&A type question?
Title: Re: Legacy Wave 9 - Return of the Jedi
Post by: JACKOFTRADZE on September 23, 2009, 06:53 PM
I got my cases last night and cracked them open so here is a quick review:

Luke: Much better than expected. The head sculpt is really nice as is the articulation. If the legs were further apart it would allow for much better posing. They also painted the saber differently to better reflect Luke's (It's ROTS Obi-Wans repainted). Chest plate swap is also integrated well.

Ewoks: Superb as always. New heads, weapons and hoods. You can easily retire your POTJ Paploo. The new one is very reminiscent of the vintage and more accurate to the movie.

Slave Leia: Home run, this figure is great! While to some the articulation may look weird to some, they balanced it out by making her more busty and curvy. While the POTJ one still looks good and more real this one is about as good as it gets to have your cake and eat it too.

Nikto: A really long overdue character and worth the wait. My only complaints are the hood falls off too easily, the gun is too small and the skin color is on the darker side. I really dig him none the less and he is not lacking in articulation. Sailbarge canon is really cool, hopefully one day it will have a home.

Rancor Keeper: For an old school pegwarmer this figure sure makes up for the past sins of the old one. He is fat, dirty and super articulated. Likeness is dead on and he will make a fine companion to the Target Rancor. Superb detailing too.

Klaatu - A perfect companion for a fat slob to cry one. Like Nikto his hood comes off easily but is very well done. The biggest flay are the knees as they do not have enough room to properly move even though they are articulated. Neverthe less he is a perfect addition to Jabba's Ranks.

Nien Nunb: A perfectly fine repaint with a much darker tone to the red flight suit. I wish they would be more consistent with this because the X-Wing pilots & greay imp officers suffer from this same problem. He is much pinker than Ten Nunb.

Pruneface: I was never a big fan of these ET wannabes but the figure is really nice. The cloak material looks really good and should be a preview for General Lando's eventual upgrade. I got rid of my POTF2 version with the pirate patch but you can see this guy has a good chance to be reused to make another Dressillian. The only real flaw I see is the paint wipe on the paints, it's a little sloppy.

The two new astromech droids are nice, I like the Dexter Diner one better.

For the exception of the Scouttrooper The rest of the case are repacks that have nothing to do with ROTJ. I get the fact they want more variety but one repack choice is very redundant - Jango Fett. He was just rereleased in the AOTC wave and you will get him again in the Target pack so stuffing him this case seems like real overkill. EP2 Obi-Wan makes some sense as he was short lived. FYI - They updated his saber with the flare.

I found this wave more enjoyable than the TPM wave as it had more characters with key upgrades to old ones.

I got my cases last night and cracked them open so here is a quick review:

You nailed it.  I was surprised that the little stick thing with Major Panno fits right into the little sleeve thing on his cloak (really nice work) and that Luke's torso actually looks worse in pictures than in person.  Giran rocks my socks.  Like, this is a new level of greatness, Hasbro typically does its ROTJ aliens very well and this is no exception.

ALSO!  The revision case has the new Ugnaught in it-- I got mine from Entertainment Earth (as I work there) tonight.   It's pretty good, the legs are somewhat spindly without the apron covering them in part but I do still like it and I hope they ship more of them in the future.  As one probably won't cut it.  Same basic accessories as the first.

Really, really nice work on Hasbro's part.  I wish R3-M3's dome was less frosty, but hey, it's R3-O1 to me and I'm happy to have it.

Thanks guys... you know when you figure in the B.A.D. figures, and two Ewoks, this wave cost me around $4.50 per figure.  Really lucked out with these.  The Leia is amazing as already known, as are both of Jabba's henchman... hell, the Rancor Keeper is great too.  Luke has his good and bad points with that weird torso, and the Sullustan (I consider him a generic one) is ok, just too tall for that species.

I'm just amazed by this wave though - the one letdown is Major Panno for me.  He's not bad, but it feels like they didn't detail his head sculpt all that much (sorry Dressel).

The droids are really nice for being repainted existing astromechs:

I've been thinking about this wave for a while now and its really cool and all...but man they just missed the mark on who they put in. 

Havind kept and done the wishlists for years now the following are consitently in or near the top 10

Kithaba
Vintage Nikto
Wooof
Nien Nunb

Instead they gave us Giran, the Barge Nikto, B-Wing Nunb and the Rancor Keeper who nobody asked for.   So instead of what we got...what if it was:

Wooof
Kithaba
Vintage Nikto
Nien Nunb
DSII Luke
Slave Leia
Paploo and WICKET
Major Panno

I'm all for obscurity but I'd rather have well known or vintage update obscure over what this wave had.  Sour grapes I know because they all look amazing and I can't wait to crack open my case tonight :P

Scott, to a large degree I am with you. A lot of upcoming figures are very WTF? (AT-AT Driver as you mentioned Rancor Keeper, ESB Green EE Astromech redo)

While I am happy to see upgrades out side of the not at all needed AT-AT Driver the choices are a bit puzzling. I figured we would have got Ackbar, MF Pilot Nunb, Yakface, Gammoreaon Guard before we got a dirty fat slob with a fetish for an ugly beast. Vintage Nikto and Wooof are high on my wants list but I am sure we will see a few next year. Nevertheless this is truly a great wave with a lot of new figures when compared to the TPM wave. My hope for the next ROTJ wave is:


Admiral Ackbar
The Emperor (New head and ne thicker material for cloak)
Royal Guard (Darker red and improved soft goods.
Gammorean Guard
Skiff Master Weequay
Woof
Wicket & Logray Resculpts
Leia Ewok dress resculpt

The droids are really nice for being repainted existing astromechs:

To pick a nit, R3-M3's torso is retooled around the... er... neck?  Brains?  Whatever the little bits and pieces are around the top, I'm pretty sure those are modified just slightly.  I haven't looked closely at the dome versus previous domes yet...

And Giran remains impressive after the new-figure-high.

The head sculpt for R3-M3 is similar in design to the domes first used on R2-A2 from the Toys"R"Us exclusive "The Battle of Hoth" multipack and two of the clear domed astromechs (R4-A22 (http://www.yakface.com/TGuide2004/ActionFigures/tsc/multipacks/01/head.html) and R4-E1 (http://www.yakface.com/TGuide2004/ActionFigures/tsc/multipacks/02/head.html)) from Entertainment Earth's Exclusive Astromech Droid Pack Series I (http://www.yakface.com/TGuide2004/html/tsc/multipacks/01.html) and Series II (http://www.yakface.com/TGuide2004/html/tsc/multipacks/01.html).

I got a chance to open these up and check them out a bit this week, and I think it really is a well-done wave.  I do sort of agree with what Scott was mentioned earlier, as this was a little bit of a missed opportunity to finish off some vintage figures, or take care of some much asked-for re-dos.  That said, I can't say I don't like a single figure in this wave.  I am still hoping we get a "regular" Nien Nunb at some point though, as this one doesn't seem quite right to me.  Other than that, a very nice wave of figures.  As much as I was looking forward to the Luke (which is pretty nice), I'm really impressed with the Nikto/Giran and Ewok figures.  All very nicely done, and some of my favorites of the year.  I didn't think I'd care that much about the Giran figure, but it really is spiffy.  The ewoks are great too, and really makes me hope they get to a re-do of Wicket (as well as Logray and possibly Teebo) sooner rather than later.  I was surprised with how much smaller the new Rancor Keeper is compared to the POTF2 version, but it is a big improvement.  I can't wait to see how much Hasbro improves on something like the Gamorrean Guard next year.

Yeah I don't even really consider this to be Nien Numb per se.  I consider it a generic Sullustan B-Wing pilot, since it's just a repainted Evolutions Sullustan.  Nien Numb is short, very short  maybe 2/3rds the height of this Sullustan.

Really I just consider this figure to be an error in naming it.

Picked this wave up at Target and opened them all up. What a wave. I'm floored at the articulation standard. With the exception of the Ewoks, they all have the same points of super articulation. Great sculpts too. Luke is the worst by far, but I have to admit, he's much better than the preproduction photo's. If it wasn't for the undersized waist, he'd be awesome.

As far as the waist goes, he be a lot better if they would have included the belt from the TLC Sandstorm Luke (http://www.yakface.com/TGuide2004/ActionFigures/TLC/LC_BD16/lf20.html). He was wearing it during the DSII duel after all.

The DSII Luke ain't so bad - by far better than that horrible, HORRIBLE 2004 DSII Luke (the one with the caveman expression and floppy arms). Yeah, it looks like Hasbro could have made a few better choices with this figure, but this is definitely the Luke to accompany our 2008 TLC Darth Vader (w/ 2-piece helmet)!  :D

I got the wave the other day from HTS.  And I'm very pleased with it all the way 'round.

Regarding DS2 Luke?  I think it's a great figure.  The facial likeness isn't perfect, but historically Mark Hammill's likeness has been tough to nail down.  The one thing that sticks out to me?  By virtue of their design, the ball jointed shoulders are a little bulky.  So it makes Luke look a little musclebound.  A swivel joint may have looked a little better in this case.  But in this case it seems that the articulation was more important.

I got my HTS order in of the ROTJ Wave on Saturday and I gotta say overall it's an impressive wave. Some quick thoughts on each figure, noting that I skipped Rancor Keeper and the B-Wing Pilot...

Jedi Luke - If I hadn't seen the pics of this figure in advance I'd be extremely disappointed, instead I'm just let down once again by Hasbro's inability to follow up on the greatness of the 2004 Jedi Luke. The headsculpt isn't bad at all, though it looks a bit too old for Luke in ROTJ, the hair styling is spot on. The torso and the swappable chest piece work out great, I actually expected it not too but was shocked. However, the use of the 30AC Luke arms, legs, and waist ruin the figure. The limbs are too bulky, especially at the joints, to properly detail Luke in ROTJ. As mentioned before the shoulders are the worst examples as they are just not sculpted well at all. If I wasn't a collector of all things Jedi Luke, I would never have gotten this figure.

Slave Leia - This figure is way better than I expected, the Hasbro pics did not do it justice. The headsculpt is pretty good and the detailing across the whole figure is perfect. The swappable lower half works out nicely though the skin tone on the "sitting" legs doesn't match the rest of the figure, but it's passable. One key thing to note, is when putting the regular lower half back on, make sure to push all the way through otherwise your Leia will look a little bow-legged.

Nikto Gunner - WOW! The sculpting details on this one is amazing, all the folds and creases put into this show what great work the Hasbro designers can do. Even the small straps on the legs and torso are separate pieces, top notch stuff! And the likeness of the headsculpt is so good it makes me want many head casts of this guy, leagues better than the Nikto Jedi of 2002.

Giran - This one is an almost WOW! Like Nikto, the sculpting is outstanding, but it's so good it actually screws up the articulation. The shoulder and knee joints are hampered by the sculpting such that you do not get the full range of motion you should. While not the end of the world, I think Hasbro could have fixed this issue easily. Still, this is another winner from Hasbro.

Major Panno - Another well done figure, though there aren't a lot of details here that stand out when compared to the Jabba goons. Most notable I think to me is that it's a great base for SA Rebel Soldiers in the future. Also keep note on the "pouches" on the cloak, you can use them to hold his weapon and communicator.

Ewoks - Not a lot you can say here, other than a good job on the headsculpts and weapons. These are the same Ewok sculpts we got in the last 2 pack, nice job for the Ewoks but nothing to write home about. Paploo does look spot on from the movie though.

Overall, I'm happy with my purchases and despite the end "being nigh" as is being rumored, I see that from an individual figure standpoint Hasbro is overall doing just fine with the OT goodness.

This whole wave is in stock at HTS.com right now.

Just had myself a little Dresselian army building session.

Man, that Dresselian is awesome. Really makes the Pruneface from POTF2 look lame, and he was a pretty solid figure to begin with.

I'm defininitely am picking up 2 Leia's for that exact reason, Rob.  I have 2 Luke Dagobah's for that, actually, and even want to try my hand at a SA one at some point.

But Leia's a must x2 for the reclining pose, and the "action figure".  She's more an accessory for Jabba with the posed legs though.

Hasbro may have dropped the ball on the Hoth Rebel variant, but at least they managed to get us the variant piggy, complete with the same toolkit/console accessories the first version had.

Because Legacy's been hurting all year probably. :)

I just got my ROTJ figures in today from HTS.  I've got no complaints on my willingness to wait on their date at this point.

Panno kicks much ass.  My fav of the wave.

I'll be picking up more of him to army build some Dressellians, if htis wave ever sees any kind of decent distribution.  Ready to get more figures, duplicates, from this wave already so I can't say I'm not hunting for stuff anymore, but I won't be making long toy runs.  Just the routine stuff locally.

Gotta get my 2nd Leia asap.  Very nice figure.  Panno's the wave winner though, to me. 

Both goons, great...  Malakili wasn't wanted but is nice.  Just hope he's phased out quickly.  Ewoks rock, give me more, and more, and more.

Jedi Luke's still coming (Paul got him for me) so other than that, I'm caught up...  Well, I still need the Ball Turret Battlepack but that's another story.

Are the Ewoks and Jedi Luke new?  Geez, I just ordered six figures and if I'd realized those were newish OT stuff I'd likely have ordered them as well.  Nice to get seven figs in quick order from SWS.com as that alleviates a lot of stress from them not hitting here at all.  Ordered slave Leia, Nikto Gunner, Giran, Major Panno, Malakili, Nien Nunb and a Hoth Rebel Trooper I never got previously.  I guess I'll have to leave Luke and the 'woks until I can stumble across Rum Sleg.

Both are "new", but the Luke shares some parts with previous Luke's, and the Ewoks I believe are repaints with new accessories, but I could be wrong.  Not opened them yet.

Thanks Jayson.  I thought the heads were new once I opened it...  They're very snugly fit to the hats, to the point I can't get Paploo's off and haven't tried No 'Apak's.

These are some of the best decoed Ewoks ever though, outstanding. 

Someone somewhere did some simple "drybrushing" to spiff the hoods of the Marvel 3-pack Ewoks up, and man did that make a world of difference.  They're night and day figures, just with some deco to the hoods.  Kudos to whoever I saw do that, which I now forget who that was.

Much like ANH's re-use of droids I guess, the same can be said of astro's in the prequals.

The thing is, to me anyway, droids are like cars...  how many aqua mid-90's Chevy Cavaliers have you seen?  Or what about the black and dark blue ones today?  How many dark blue Ford Explorers?

That's one planet...  You know there's gotta be a myriad of blue and white R2's too, we just see the one.  Some decoes are probably custom, a little more obscure or "rare", but others are probably just run-of-the-mill paint jobs you get off the showroom floor.

I thought about it, but decided to pass.  Just no real good spot to display him.  The Jabba's Palace guys I all have a place for either on my Skiff (the Nikto Gunner looks great there) or in the palace as upgrades.  The "Nien Nunb" figure looks well in my Alliance hangar scene, as will another astromech.

Agreed.  I love just about every figure in this wave - the added detail and articulation on each of them is super.  Most are characters I'm not all that excited about, but the quality and detail on these quickly changed my mind now that I've seen them in person.

I think the likeness is quite nice as well.

Cool, thanks for the info Jeff!  I was hoping that someone would ask Hasbro about it in the Q&A.

No BD24 Grievous is coming.  From the Q&A at Han's Hideout (http://hanshideout.blogspot.com/2009/10/hasbro-star-wars-q-session-18.html):

He was indeed dropped, leaving a hole in our figuring number system. This was in response to needing to shift a bunch of assortments around - we just couldn't fit him in. As such, there will be no BD24 issued.

Not that i didnt want one before but after opening Giran and the new Nikto, i really want Kithba to round a whole new Klaatu, Barada, Niktu. Oh and still want Wooof too!

Just scored this whole wave tonight, minus the Ewoks. I hit two different Targets, and the only figure gone was the Ewok set. What. The. Hell.

It shouldn't surprise me, since every Ewok since Chirpa has been a pain in the ass for me to find. At least I got the second Ugnaught, so I don't have to fight for that one.

Sounds like these hit pretty hard the last couple days. I wonder if that will be the last good chance to find them before wave 10 hits.

Nooooooooo way man.

These have not begun to hit en masse yet, try December.

It's not the first time, no. There was wave back in SAGA of '04 where the numbering system got all screwed up and at one point there were two figures that had the same number.

Sort of. The inserts with Saga Darth Maul 03/25 (http://www.yakface.com/TGuide2004/html/0325.html) and Han Solo 03/27 (http://www.yakface.com/TGuide2004/html/0327.html) were misprinted whereas Maul's read: "03/23" and Han's read "03/25". The card backs were printed correctly so there wasn't an technical "break" in the numbering.

Interestingly, this insert numbering error happened again in the ROTS line but was corrected first with stickers on the insert and then with printed inserts.

The Wookiee Heavy Gunner (http://www.yakface.com/TGuide2004/html/rots/64.html) and R4-P117 (http://www.yakface.com/TGuide2004/html/rots/68.html) were both designated as figures #64 and #68, but again there was no real break in the numbering system.

I like Luke - the range of motion he has in his torso joint is the best they've ever done there - but the arms are too bulky compared to the legs.  He's certainly appreciated, and I don't know they'll ever do better, so he's off to fight his dad on my shelves.

I haven't heard of anywhere where waves hit in bulk the same month they're released and then are never heard from again - possibly with the exception of the Sio Bibble wave in 1999 and barely the AOTC Wave 7 this year, although I am still seing it in stores.

Around here anyhow, figures trickle in the month they're officially "released" and then within 1-2 months hit en masse, like clockwork.  We'll have Phantom Menace Wave 8 and Return of the Jedi Wave 9 hit in bulk at the end of November and December here in NY.  Even Entertainment Earth has revisions of these two waves first coming in for November.

I saw this wave at Target this week as well, although I already had it via online sources.  I was able to grab the second Ugnaught though, so I was happy to find that figure.  It looks like Luke, Leia, and the ewoks were the first to sell here as well - as the rest of the wave was still on the pegs today.
Title: Re: Legacy Wave 9 - Return of the Jedi
Post by: Ryan on October 24, 2009, 10:37 PM
I've managed to find most of this wave, still missing Leia and the Ewoks. I think my favorite so far has to be Panno. What a great figure with lots of customizing and army building potential. These legs look like they will work great on a human Endor Rebel Commado at somepoint (I believe we asked this in the Q & A not long ago, and Hasbro confirmed that this may be the plan.) The sculpts are fantastic all around.

I like Luke better in person. The more I look at him, I really have no problem with his upper body. His scrawny little waist/lower torso seems to be what is throwing off his proportions. I can deal with this version for now, but I think it is going to need an update before too long, and that sucks.

I also have to applaud Hasbro for one little thing about this wave that really is a huge improvement. All of the staffs/pikes/gaffis that I have are nice and stiff. Not one of them looks like they need some plastic viagra. This is what we should have been getting with our figures all along.

The only figure I've seen for the VERY FIRST TIME (!!) from this wave is Malakilli. Would have bought it along with the new TPM Obi, but I only had enough for one fig - decided on Kenobi. Wanted both. :( But this was the first time I'VE ever seen the ROTJ wave (or at least some of it) at retail ... Good sign that Hasbro's stepping it up as far as distribution.

Found Giran, Nikto Gunner, Major Panno, and the new Ugnaught at Target yesterday. All very well done figures. I'm just blown away by the two skiff guards though....detailed sculpts, super articulation, nice accessories, these two are action figure perfection. 8)

Post by: Darby on October 25, 2009, 12:52 PM
Those two are Hall of Fame to me.  They're two of the best of the year, and two of the best of the modern line.  I'm really excited next year for Wooof, and especially now the Gamorrean Guard, who I wasn't before.  I think he will be very good.

This whole wave is shockingly good - there's not a figure in here that I'm disappointed in.  I know Hasbro said they would do more for collectors next year, but if they just keep up this level of quality with their new releases, I'll be ecstatic.

I saw this wave today, except for Leia, Nikto and the Ewoks, and only bought the Klaatu guy.  I might pick up the Prune Face guy if I see him around again.  I thought the Luke looked pretty bad; the sandstorm Luke without all the extra gear is still a better representation, IMHO.

The Rancor Keeper guy is a worthless resculpt; he doesn't look that much better than the POTF2 version (although I'm sure the added articulation is a bonus for a guy who doesn't really do anything but cry).

The biggest disappointment for me, though, is Nein Numb.  I don't want a B-Wing pilot Nein Numb, I want the one with the vest; the way the vintage and POTF2 versions looked.  So close, yet so far.

The Klaatu guy is fantastic, though.  Work of art.

Do it.  The figure is freaking fantastic.

Totally agree that Malakili isn't that much better than the POTF2 one, so much so that I saved my $8.50 and passed on him altogether.  He did do a little more than cry though, give him some credit for the bouncing man boobs action.  I know I wouldn't strut mine in front of a running movie reel.

You can't think of this as a Nien Numb figure.  You have to think of it as a generic Sullustan Rebel pilot the same way you did with the Evolutions version that this is the repaint of.  Nien Numb is short.  This figure is no joke about 1.5" taller than a Nien Numb figure should have been.  As far as I'm concerned, Hasbro simply put the wrong name on it.  This is not Nien Numb.
Title: Re: Legacy Wave 9 - Return of the Jedi
Post by: Jayson on October 25, 2009, 11:58 PM
Personally, I'm fine with this being Nien Nunb - sure it's a very scene specific version, and not one we asked for or necessarily wanted, but it works for me until the real deal comes along. Plus, if repainting an existing figure to serve as case filler that helps to cost out all-new figures like Slave Leia, Panno, the Nikto Gunner, Giran and even Malakili I'm all for it.

I'm already kicking myself for not buying Panno.  I'll swing by on my way into work tomorrow and see if he's still around.

And if Malikili's boobs had been articulated, I would have considered getting him as well.  Maybe someday...

I agree with this description of "coping with Nein Numb".  He's not Nein in the cockpit of the Falcon, he's just some Sullustan bullshitting with the humans before battle.  He flies a B-Wing, which he ejects from during the battle of Endor as he crashes it into a Star Destroyer.  He floats around in space, but then the Death Star blows up and he's pushed off into deep space by the ensuing shockwave which doesn't kill him, but instead sends him on a long journey.

He's later picked up by a harem ship on the way to Jabba's Palace...  The ship's captain realizes though that Jabba just got offed the other day, so now he's free to open up as an inter-stellar ship of pleasure, where this Sullustan lives out his days in sexual ecstacy.  Look for photonovels and artwork soon.

It's a communicator and it can fit in either of the little softgoods pockets/holsters on his chest. It just slides right in and the cape holds it tight. :)

You know, I was sort of surprised - our local Target got a case of this wave in last week, and the Leia/Luke/Ewoks disappeared within a day.  Here it is almost a week and a half later, and the rest of the wave is still hanging on the pegs.  I would have thought the whole thing would have sold right away, and people are especially missing out with those Jabba goons.

I've seen parts of this wave on a few occasions at a couple of Targets. I've seen the situation Brian described, only the Skiff Guards missing, and then only the pilot and Prune Face. So it seems different shoppers are after different figures. On all occasions the repacks were gone.

I've only picked up the Nikto Gunner and the Ewoks so far. The Ewoks are cool looking, but nothing special. It's still cool to add more variety to the tribe I suppose. The Nikto gunner is bland in my opinion but it's still a cool figure. I'm hoping to pick up several more to outfit my skiff. It's awesome that the cannon can connect to the rails.

I have only seen this wave once so far and the funny thing is that the Anakin, Obi-Wan, Biker Scout and Jango repacks are STILL in the store.

When I found the wave, the only new figures left were Luke, Leia and Malakili. Finding the Leia was great for me since I definitely want two of her to open - so I can have her displayed both ways. Same thing with the Luke so I can have him on display with the different chest pieces.

I've yet to stumble on any other figures from this wave, but I'm not too worried, that was the same situation with the EP1 wave and then it was like an EP1 figure explosion around here.

If all else fails, I'll just order some cases from EE.

Jayson, I was so inspired by your photo of just simple reaccessorizing that I upped a Panno too tonight with an Endor poncho (cut the hood loose so it's not sewn to the back of the poncho), and a Power Team Elite figure's backpack.  Added a Clone Trooper blaster carbine for a touch of them using older army surplus from the last war...  He looks slick as hell like that.  Not film accurate, but worth a looksee.

Panno's probably one of the most diverse figures ever I think.  Fantastic army builder htough he maybe wasn't intended as such.  My favorite from that wave of pretty great figures.  I wish I could find a load of them.

Rotj wave is nice, decent sculpt although the scale of action figures´ height gets shorter.

Perhaps the most notable difference in height is the case of Malakili, I expected he could be depicted a bit taller.

Maybe the smaller box determines smaller action figures (exception: Chewie variants)

Hasbro should have the challenge to make another Nien Nunb from Millennium Falcon cockpit

The case of Giran and Nikto Gunner makes me hope the new super articulated gamorrean guard could be planned for 2010.

I recently acquired DSII Luke, and he should have this  blue BAD part. (http://www.rebelscum.com/photo.asp?image=/TLC/Basic/BD16Luke/LC-1083.jpg)

But instead I got the part packed with the ANH R2-D2 (http://www.rebelscum.com/photo.asp?image=/TLC/Basic/BD29R2D2/NEW-171.jpg)

I'm wondering if this was just an honest mistake on Hasbro's part since the BAD parts are so similar, or if maybe another collector removed the parts and swapped them.

Title: Re: Legacy Wave 9 - Return of the Jedi
Post by: Jayson on December 12, 2009, 01:20 AM
Neither. Luke was repacked into the ANH wave as a case filler/ carry forward figure and thus his BAD part was switched to match the other R3-A2 (http://www.yakface.com/TGuide2004/html/TLC/r3a2.html) BAD parts of that wave.

You got the DS II Luke that was packed in a wave 3 case.  That version of Luke includes the R3-A2 dome & center leg.  If you had gotten DS II Luke from a wave 2 case, it would have come with the R3-M3 dome & center leg.  If you need that particular droid part, it's also available with BD14 - Anakin Skywalker &  BD25 - Saleucami Trooper.

You can check out a full rundown on all of the droid parts here (http://www.jeditemplewarroom.com/forum/index.php?topic=1865.0).

I actually think R3-A2 (the orange one) came out better than R3-M3 (the blue one). I like how R3-A2's dome is made of clear plastic as opposed to the frosted plastic of R3-M3.

I still bought enough figures to build two of each of them though. They'll come in handy displayed in various dioramas or thrown into various vehicles with droid sockets.

I noticed the same thing - except in my case the Luke figures didnt sell as fast - but I stopped at a local WM and the Jabbas Palace guys, Panno, and the rebel pilot have stuck around in numbers, there were multiples of each, which strikes me as odd, since they are great figures, minus the rebel pilot whos a bore.  It could be the case that collectors already have them and parents were the ones buying Luke, Leia, and the ewoks...

Luke and Leia were near to non-existent near me. Ewoks came in a close second to them. The Skiff guards were easy to find and IMO great figures. I bought extras for customs.

Nein Nunb shows up the most. I suppose that's because of Hasbro's just having released him in an Evolutions set. (great choice there H... rolls eyes)

Surprisingly, Malakili and Panno have sold well. Neither are pegwarmers and only stay on the shelves just a smidge longer than the skiff guards.

This was a solid wave, IMO.

Panno stays on the shelves longer than the skiff guards?  Your side of town and mine must be way different.  I see the skiff guards semi-frequently and Panno I'm lucky to find one at this point.  He sold just slightly less than Luke/Leia everywhere I go.  Usually I see the Nikto Guard, Malikili, and Nein Numb with Giran next...  Panno, Luke, Leia and the Ewoks are usually gone.

I see these shipping still though so things can change.  I find a new case of them has been opened every whipstitch.

I've seen around Panno and Sciffies 50/50. It's Malakilli that's tends to be around the longest. And I've caught Luke hanging around - I'm surprised that it was Luke, not Leia on the pegs. :o Even the Ewoks were gone.

Panno stays on the shelves longer than the skiff guards?  Your side of town and mine must be way different.  I see the skiff guards semi-frequently and Panno I'm lucky to find one at this point.  He sold just slightly less than Luke/Leia everywhere I go.  Usually I see the Nikto Guard, Malikili, and Nein Numb with Giran next...  Panno, Luke, Leia and the Ewoks are usually gone.

I see these shipping still though so things can change.  I find a new case of them has been opened every whipstitch.

Well I did say a smidge. By that I mean maybe one day longer than the others. That's hardly of significance. This whole wave has sold very well.

Near me its Malikili and Luke that are most likely to sit.  Followed closely by Pranno.  I've seen the B-Winger and Sciffies a few times, the Ewoks once and no Leia.

I hardly ever spot the furballs.  Same with Leia.  Around here, Panno & Malikili are keeping the pegs plenty warm.

I keep seeing Nien Numb, Malakili and Giran - I guess there's no love for the Rancor keepers.  :-\

It got two of each so I could display them both with Jabba's Rancor AND also as filler characters in my Jabba's throne room set-up.

Both are great figures.

It's funny how Hasbro gave Leia a C-rating, since female figures don't tend to sell well. This Leia is most definitely an A-rating on the shelves! She's always gone! The Emperor has foreseen most incorrectly...

Part of that is her case-packing too though.  She's 1-per I believe.  Her slave costume's one of those things too that I think a lot of people would buy that normally might not buy otherwise for on their computer desk or some such.

I've only seen her twice in the wild...  Luke slightly more, Panno slightly more than that, then the Skiff Guards, then Nein Numb, and then Malikili is the "pegwarmer" who I see semi-routinely.  From Panno to Leia though, those 3 I rarely see ever.  I'd probably have 20 Panno's by now if I could find them in any quantity.

She's hard to get.  She's the only fig from the last three waves that I haven't seen anywhere.

Does anyone know if it's possible to swap heads between Giran, Nikto or Nien Numb? I don't have any of these yet, but was thinking of getting a couple extras if it's easy to swap parts.

Not really.  The Nikto head will fit on Giran, but the others don't swap well at all.

I got a question...I bought this whole wave, why do I have two blue R2 BAD body pieces, and no head for the blue one?
Title: Re: Legacy Wave 9 - Return of the Jedi

Not sure Mike, but Luke should come with the blue R2's dome.

I just stumbled across the most annoying piece of thievery I've ever seen.  >:(

I've seen pictures of swapped-out figures or figures with swapped-out BAD parts, but today at my local Target someone clearly ripped the side of a ROTJ wave Malakilli to get only to the BAD part and just left the remains there, torn package and missing BAD part and all, the works. I almost half-expected that they would have taken the figure home and done their evil work there, but this is just the lamest thievery I've ever seen. If you did this, whoever might be reading, be man enough to get the money next time, like the rest of us do. 

Thanks.  :-*

I was once angered at the lack of this wave, but I'm now angered at the over-abundance of Major Pannos, Ten Numbs, Malakils, and Nikto Gunners. >:(

Alright, I confess.... it was me.  I'll try to be more discreet next time.

Anyone know if the ewoks hoods are swapable?
Title: Re: Legacy Wave 9 - Return of the Jedi
Post by: shmashwitdaclub on January 19, 2010, 10:09 AM
yes they are.  I bought a 2nd one of these packs when I found that out.  The white ewok with white hood is pretty cool.

Yep, and IIRC they are a pain in the ass to remove.

yeah, I had drop in them in some hot water to soften them up and even then I still had to use a nearby butter knife to help pry them off.

Anyone got a pic of what they look like with the swapped hoods? I'm wonderin if it's worth it to pick up an extra pair.
