2020 TVC Wave 5 (aka New TVC Wave 15)
« on: February 22, 2020, 05:46 PM »
Not 100% sure, but I believe these waves will be coming after the Summer repack waves (formerly called 2020 Waves 2 and 3).  Good chance the Wave # order will be moved around as we get closer to Fall...

This wave is tentatively scheduled for September 2020.

Here is the case pack from Entertainment Earth.

2x Redacted
2x Redacted
2x Redacted
2x Episode 6 Luke Skywalker Jedi

Real helpful info, I know... more details to come later this Spring.

Although I will wait to see what the exact contents will be, this would not be a horrible gamble to pre-oder blindly.

Is that Luke any different than the 3-pack one?

C知on, Rob. After all, it IS on a new individual cardback now!  ::)

/sarcasm

All that aside, it looks like a promising lineup in terms of characters.  But Hasbro seems to want to just drill down on the new Luke head sculpts a little bit too eagerly.  And it would have been nice if that same passion carried over to the Battle of Crait version, because that likeness needed some help.

Dig it. Like the Rogue one love, but I'm genuinely surprised by the lack of Mandalorian.

Maybe the Mando merch will be held back for the S2 premiere?

I知 more surprised by the complete absence of any new figures from The Rise Of Skywalker.

Agreed.  It's extremely disappointing that we've basically gotten Zori Bliss, one Knight of Ren, a few troops with minimal screen time, and re-hashes of Rey and Poe.

I wonder if that might be predictable on some level. They always have a parking lot of ideas that they can move forward for new waves... right? Maybe they didn't add much from ROS to the parking lot, or not invest too much time or money on ROS characters if there was some question about renewal of the license.

You know, I actually meant to add that thought, but got distracted.

I managed to get all 8 figs from these two waves Jayson broke early before Amazon pulled the six links. Hopefully they stay pre-ordered despite that.

New troop with possibly the most screen time, First Order Jet Trooper not in 3 3/4" form.
