I just have to throw my 2 cents in on this. One more time:   I will never try to convince anyone to like 5 POA if they don't. It's an aquired taste. But as far as pricing goes, they are at the sa

So Black Series Luke's multiple hair colors bugged me. For every new figure, there was a new take on his hair color. I went and customized my Jedi and Bespin Lukes so that they match. When two diff

I got my Lando and Sand People figures today. Both are amazing! I love that you can interchange spear heads on the Sand Person's spear. Lando's cape works very well, I'm a soft goods lover but the

Didn't find anything either this weekend, went to 4 Targets & they had nadda, Walmarts aren't carrying the figs here either so nada there. Went to 1 TRU & they had 7 Pilot Lukes & 1 R2D2....at least one of the local supermarkets had the entire Wave 1 in so there was a Sandtrooper to be had by somebody....just not me.....I'm holding out for a regular one...

Found an Obi, and bespin Luke at TRU today. I bought Obi and I like the figure, but I feel like Hasbro is up to their shady tactics again. So after opening the figure and poseing him, I realized something was missing. Where are his force power hands? A $20 figure that comes with only an "extended" lightsaber? I mean look at the other waves and all the accessories each figure comes with. Obi cant even get 1 extra force power hand!? I wish I would have realized this before I bought it. I would have waited for the inevitable DX Obi with outer robe, lightsaber hilt, swapable young and old headsculpts, AND force power hands!

Thanks Hasbro, you got me again! @smilepunch@

SD you just mentioned all the reasons why I don't want to buy this fig...I even left him on the pegs the other night when I spotted him at Target....2 of the TRU's I've been to in the past week had 1st & 2nd waves for days sans Sandtrooper & Han.....notta wave 3 to be had...I'm kinda on the fence w/Luke but I wanna get a look at him before I jump.....he may be blessing the Amazan sale at the end of the year for $10 sooo I may wait on him...I really do wish they had put some extras in w/Obi & Luke like a charred stump & battle damaged head for his post-daddy battle-look at the end of ESB & Obi definitely missed out by not having an Robe, Old Ben Head (hawhaw) & of course force hands! that was like his signature move through AOC......part of me hopes they don't start that greedy type of thinking when it comes to figs I don't think I'll buy variant versions at the $20 price tag so Hasslebro if its an oversight fine but if your playing games I don't think your gonna get much more of my $....@hvg@

Its odd how some figures have more extras than expected and others barely have any... He should have gotten the Darth Maul treatment...

These guys should all have the bells and whistles at the price we're paying. Han Solo is a great example. They didn't HAVE to give him the Stormtrooper gun, extra belt, and glove hands but it made it that much cooler and now we have THE New Hope Han. No need for another. Those are the figures we should be getting at $20.

 

Wave 3 is skimping on stuff like this.

 

Bespin Luke, bare minimum, needs a removable hand. The scene where he looses it is a classic scene, not just in Star Wars, but in all of movies. How does the $20 figure not have that relatively basic feature? Going all out (again, which they should be doing at $20 a pop)he should probably also have a stump cover and alternate beat-up head. Then you would have THE Bespin Luke to go next to THE New Hope Han and THE Darth Maul.

 

All those would-be features smokedriver mentioned for prequel Obi Wan might have made the difference between a "buy" and an "easy pass" for me. And SD, you can return him pretty easily if you kept the box.

I found wave 3 including stormtrooper at toys r us. But the stormtrooper has paint flaws on his helmet. Ah well.

 

 

I found a trooper the same day too. Such an excellent figure.

Darth Vader better come with the choke hand...

 

I also hope there will be another chance at Han Solo in carbonite...

 

 

 

I would hope they're gonna spare no expense on Vader......the options could be great......alternate heads, lightsabered-stump, force & choke hands....& I would imagine if Jabba is in the works then another shot at Hans-icle Pop should be a no brainer....one would think...

Chewbacca, YES!

 

I have zero interest in that clone. Of course we will get him again in blue stripes, red stripes, yellow stripes, etc...

 

 

I don't know why they went with the phase one clone though.. The phase two looks so much better and is way more popular.

I wonder how many slots they could fill with just Clone Trooper variants; Phase 1/color variants, Phase 2/color variants, ARC Troopers, Capt. Rex, helmet variants,...

 

Although, there were Toy Fair reports that the 3 3/4" line was moving away from EU and prequel figs (per Lucasfilm's request?), if so, the 6" line may not have many prequel slots available

Does anyone know if Hasbro usually ships figures that would pass the standards of a normal quality control department. I would like to purchase a bespin Luke but recently had a storm trooper shipped to me with a crack in the foot and I am hesitant to reorder from Hasbro. I love this line but fear it will die due to very sloppy production with no quality control. All of the Luke's at my tru stores have atrocious paint apps. Is it just me or is anyone else having problems finding decent figures from this wave.

Saw a Leia figure last week, I noticed something was different with her, it looked like more of Carrie, bought it, thinking it was just a lucky find. Found a new Han Solo today, which looked like more of Harrison. It confirms that there are new head sculpts of the human figures previously released.

Hmmmm....I'd be interested to see if there's a really big difference. I'm fine with the heads we already got but if it's a major change for the better I guess I can always exchange. Do you have pics?

 

Stopped at one Target yesterday where ROTS Obi Wan told me I was too late to snag Stormtrooper.

for the Leila, nothing much changed, still same head, but they improved her eyes, Han Solo has a completely new head, it has that texture similar to the Series 1 Luke and unlike the first Han Solo, which was glossy and had a plastic feel. This new one looked like more of the movie character.

 

Im assuming Obiwan may have a new head sculpt soon too.

I haven't got my Han from BBTS yet, I guess I should ship my pile soon, lol. When I get him though, I'm going with the regular ol' Han look. Reg Belt and reg hands. If they ever make a Falcon chair, gunner chair or cockpit diorama or something like that, then I'll give him the gloves, but to me, they're useless right now.
