JUST A HEADS UP.......Well I just purchased or "pre-ordered" the next wave (Leia, Han, Greedo, Fetts) on Hasbro Toy shop.....the current wave is sitting in most stores now, so much like the last Joe waves (I preordered the last retaliation waves) I didn't want to take a chance on missing out just in case + gas is so damned expensive nowadays it saves $ on all the hunting around I would normally do for these figs.....damn the last "coupon" HTS offered expired last month.....oh well at least I got free shipping.....they took the SDCC sold out exclusives down so I did a quick check on Fettman......@fett@ can't wait...@hvg@

Nice, I just ordered mine. I'm more excited for this wave than wave one! Really glad to get the free shipping. Now I pay exactly what I would have at retail. These are the last figs I plan to buy in 2013, can't wait for them!

Are they going a LITTLE overboard on the Leia height? I've see the 3 3/4" line pull this too. Is she really that short in the movies?

Fisher is only 5 feet tall.
I'm actually pleased as punch that her action figure is appropriately sized.
As a entire-line Marvel Legends collector, it is super-rare for any female character to be smaller than Captain America. And they should be.
It's great to see Hasbro really trying to make the Black Series accurate.

Great to see in-hand pics of Greedo. He just looks awesome.
Not very excited to see the Ep 3 Anakin Skywalker. Sure, he looks like a good figure, but the design of the guy itself is kinda boring.
It's not that I hate prequel characters in the line, it's just that young Obi Wan, Anakin - these are just boring visually.
I hope they dont pegwarm and threaten the longevity of the line.
Series 2 seems so strong and series 3, outside of the possibility of people wanting to army build Stormtroopers (if possible) seems really weak.

I broke down and opened my Luke.

At $20 each, these figures need to be A+ and this one really is. It's a stunner.

I like how solid they're put together. No limp, loose joints, everything's tight. Construction is solid. He can take just about any pose you want. All the little details are there, the figure looks 100% like he was out of the movie. Best Luke head you've ever seen on an action figure (there have been sooooooooo many misses in this department). I'm posing him next to my superhero movie figs now and they're looking great!

Saw 3 Sandtroopers, 2 Darth Mauls, 1 Luke and one I didn't bother checking at my TRU tonight. I only picked up Maul, since I already own a Sandtrooper and an R2. These are awesome figures. I look forward to an original trilogy Obi-wan.

Actually, any Obi-wan besides the episode 3 look would have been cool to me.

For those who have asked or wondered, here is Greedo's gunbelt on X-Wing Luke. Little small but still an ok substitute. Han's gunbelt will probably hold Luke's blaster a little better though. More images can be seen here:

finally saw Darth Maul and a Sandtrooper in the wild...at K-mart of all places.

I passed on them, as i will all the 6in figures, and picked up the exclusive 3 3/4in Ewok Assault Catapult set

It's kinda exciting to think of where this line could be in 3 years, and how much fun parts swapping and accessory trading could be going on.

I saw, and I kid you not, 10 R2s, 4 Lukes, 2 Mauls and a Sandtrooper at Target, lol... I couldn't believe all the R2s. If they were smart, they'd release 3PO soon, so people could put the two friends together. Now that I think about it.. I better stock up on R2s as when they release 3PO, they'll probably be hard to find(R2 that is).

I hope Hasbro is VERY discriminating with putting out those small characters. I can understand how we'd have a LOT of passing on those at $20 and we don't want shelves clogging up and scaring off retailers ordering more. I'm not pushing the panic button yet, though. They seem to be moving well enough.

In a perfect world, I'd say do Yoda, MAYBE a Wicket.....that's it. Sorry, R5-D4. If you need an army of Ewoks or a rainbow brigade of astromechs, maybe have a multipack as an online exclusive......

I thought that I may look at these, pass them up, and maybe, just maybe, pick up one here or there!! But man, the Sandtrooper I picked up for myself is phenomenal!! I love it, best Sandtrooper in action figure form!! This proves that Star Wars figures were meant for 6" scale!!

I don't know, I've been finding myself looking at future waves now!! LOL!! I really want Han and Greedo!!! They look fantastic!!

Slave Leia doesn't interest me too much, but the rest are looking great!!! Who knows, Star Wars may find a place alongside my DCUC and other lines??

Anyone thought they would pass them up and ended up falling for the line?? Any on the fencers out there??

Yeah, personally this is the only toy line I see me getting for the foreseeable future (which is one reason I'm not too broken up about the huge price tag). I've had the first wave for a while but just recently decided to open them. I've had fun posing them next to my ML and DCUC stuff and found myself wishing they were MORE like the Black Series figs; superheroes in costume but with more realistic proportions (particularly you, "My-shoulders-are-the-size-of-my-head" DCUC). But I digress. Yep, really looking forward to Han and Greedo. Looking forward to seeing what the future holds for the line.

My POTF2 collection is complete, I don't need any more 3 3/4" Star Wars, it's a good time to go 6". Especially when the figures are this good.

Now let's combine this with the Black Series thread that we already have :) [Done.]
