Wow, now this wave is really sweet. I think wave 4 and 5 are the ones I'm really thinking of getting practically all of. All of the figures revealed appeal to my specific interest. It's also nice to see the KOTOR figures. Having played the game, I always wanted figures of some of the characters but never thought they would happen. The sith lords are a good choice, cool designs visually. Now if Hasbro would just make an HK-47 and T3-M4 I'd be one satisfied customer. Oh, and I'm digging that pre-cyborg Grievous probably the most.

Just got the one and only wave i can afford this year and I'm very impressed overall by these guys. Hem Dazon is everything I'd hoped he'd be as is good ol R5-D4. I gotta say though i am really blown away by the improvments to Garindan and Hammerhead, both are such an improvment over thier previous incarnations. Overall I love this wave and it was well worth the money spent. Now if we could just get Bom Vimdin made, I could probably be satisfied if they stopped making Cantina guys. (That doesn't mean I want em to stop, i'll keep buying any patrons they put out, even the most insignificant sounding ones.) Bring em on Hasbro! oh and how about that U end of the bar?

Woohoo! Now this is the wave i've been waiting to see, and a great wave it is. At long last Hem Dazon and an accurate R5-D4! The Hammerhead is also a pleasant surprise. When I heard they were re doing him I was kind of annoyed, thinking that the old POTF2 one was fine but wow, this new one is very impressive, and his outfit is different enough that he's almost like an all new character. Garindan is also pretty cool looking, lkie everyone else, i love the holster. However, am I alone in this or does there just seem to be somthing a little off about him in the snout? Maybe it's just the angle of the picture, but there just seems to be somthing not quite right there, but i suppose I'm just nitpicking. A solid figure all around. I might get the Luke, depending on money but the other 4 are must haves. I I could only buy one wave this year, this would be the one.

Also, depsite Vaders popularity, I really don't see why you'd include him in a Tatooine wave. I can't see Vader ever stepping foot on that planet, but oh well. A better choice would have been a living repaint of Spirit Ben from the Dagohbah wave.

Now that I'm playing the college game, I have no choice but to cut back a bit, though to be honest, my interest in the line has kind of dimmed after ROTS. Mind you theres still a few things i like the looks of this year, and as long as Hasbro pumps out  Cantina Aliens, I'll buy em, but for the most part, out of all of the new stuff we've seen this year theres maybe 5 figures in there that i actually want and only about 2 that I'll actually buy right off.

I voted for Bom Vimdin. I don't expect him to be able to stand against Quinlan or ICMG, but I'm hoping he at least makes it on the final list somewhere.

Hmmm. Personally I find this whole wave incredibly dull. Bulq is cool, and the command is a might depending on articulation but the rest are an easy pass. I am a bit concerned abot Bulqs lower torso though. It looks suspiciously like the saga Plo Koons legs repainted. If thats the case I'll likely pass on him too.

He kinda looks like he was put together with photoshop or somthing. The head seems out of proportion with the rest of the body and if I'm not mistaken it's the same head and body as the Commtech Luke.

I do realize that the R5D2 isn't an accurate version of R5D4... I guess for whatever reason, R5D4 just isn't too important of a character to me, and I'm just happy with the Star Tours one.  Kinda weird I guess... but I love that figure.


Don't get me wrong, R5-D2 is a pretty cool little figure, and I wouldn't mind gettin one myself, but he's different enough from D4 for me to tell the difference. And R5-D4 not an important character? Despite his few seconds of screen time, R5-D4 is probably one of the most pivitol characters in the SW Universe. Were it not for that bad motivator, he'd have been purchased by Luke and Owen. R2 ould be loaded back onto the sandcrawler and captured by the Imperials, causing the rebels to never recieve the secret plans, ushering in a new reign of terror for the empire with thier indestructable new weapon. Luke never would have run into Obi Wan, who in turn would never run into Solo and Chewbacca, who would never end up in the death star to rescue Leia, who would be killed by the empire. But because of the noble R5-D4, blowing his own motivator to keep R2 and 3PO together, the galaxy was saved. R5 should have been at the end of Jedi in spirit form instead of Anakin. I guess the point I'm trying to make is R5-D4 deserves a well done, accuratley sculpted figure.

As for the Luke/Han repacks, I understand the reasoning behind them, and if it were VOTC versions instead of somthing more outdated then I'm all for it. It'd be even better if they included some cool assesory to persuade those of us who already have one to get another. Like maybe a cantina table. I'd buy ten Cantina Hans if he came with a cantina table.

Don't forget abot the antena on his dome. R5-D4 has been in demand for so long, that they have to get it right. On another note, regarding the sandtrooper. This figure would be so much better if they added some wrist articulation so he can hold his rifle with both hands. It's kind of annoying to have an army with such limited poses.

Cantina Scuffle

Bannis Keeg(kitbash from the other Duro)
Saurin(kitbash from the Saga bossk)
Obi Wan Kenobi(OTC spirit repaint)
Cantina Band Member(give him new legs with articulated knees)
Jawa(commtech with OTC style paintjob)

Any way or excuse to get some new cantina stuff is good with me. I'd bite on that Tusken set too.

Yknow, rather than re releasing Luke or Han again, they should repack the cantina band member, maybe give him some new articulated knees.

Chief Chirpa - Bout time. I don't really have an opinion on the Ewoks one way or another, but I'll probably pick this guy up.

Moff jerrjerod - Dunno, maybe. I'll have to see him first.

Death Star Gunner - This one might be cool, especially if he's got the SA treatment.

There's way too many repacks in this wave though by the sounds of it. We'll have to see where this goes, hopefully there'll be another new one in there somewhere.

Firefighter - Might be cool.

Cody - An obvious choice. Make sure he's nicely articulated and I'll buy.

Dofine - Meh.

Talz Jedi - Sweet! I didn't think they would have actually gone through with this but I'd hoped they would. I'm half expecting it to be Muftak with a cloth jedi robe, but here's hoping Hasbro makes him from scratch.
