HOLY CRAP! WOW OH WOW! FX-7 has floored me, absolutely floored me. In a day of great news like "New Rebel Fleet Trooper", "New Imp Officer", "New Sabe", and even "New SSG Forums", this one definitely is up there on the top of my list with these new forums. This FX-7 makes the vint one look ridiculous, this thing is so good!!!

Snaggletooth is like a big-head or something though. Not that I wanted Zutton/Snags anyway ;), but what the hell is a bazooka blaster and why does he have those weird articluated knees to fire it? It's cool he comes with a removable glass though, always like to keep my figures plastered. :D

Does anybody realize that's actually the Holiday Special version of Snaggletooth? If I'm not mistaken the hunchback snaggletooth was the only one in the Mos Eisley Cantina.

Oh well, at least it matches continuity with the vintage one (which was also based on the Holiday Special).

Hopefully this is a VERY early prototype, because I was kind of looking forward to Snags. He was my favorite Cantina alien as a kid (stop laughing).

FX-7 looks awesome!!! Total improvement over the vintage, and a figure I never thought Hasbro would resculpt. :D :D (I love that icon!)

while the new snaggletooth looks awesome, why is he wearing michael jackson's outfit from "thriller"?:D

or maybe this is the "new" michael after his latest trip to the plastic surgeon.;)

Snags has to be able to kneel with that huge head!!! It tops the big head Han Solo!!

Snaggletooth's head is like a watermelon! WOW! Why though? It is horribly ugly that way. I love FX-7! He looks completely awesome! Can't wait for that one! I really want to see Eeth Koth though, anyone know what it means when it says: all new lightsaber type, or something like that?

FX-7 is a masterpiece. When I get the Luke bacta tank set and FX-7 and put them together, I think I'm going to get a tear in my eye! Hasbro has totally blow me away with this figure. I expected detail, but that's crazy.

Sabe looks really cool based on the pic, we'll see.

Now, as far as Snaggletooth is concerned, I thought the cinema scene one was decent and I really didn't feel like we needed another version, so I was kinda not anticipating this one, but as soon as I saw the pic of this new Snaggletooth, I have to be honest: it totally cracked me up! What a totally wierdo figure. Something about that giant melon-of-a-head I find quite endearing! Also, a gun, a glass and a bazooka sounds just too darn funny to be the real accessories for this bad-boy, but they are and that's funny as heck, IMO.

NO KIDDING! This figure is SO left-field, I can't believe Hasbro's making this figure and not ANY of the losers from the first 3 Fan Choice polls, almost all of them are better choices than this thing IMO.

The FX-7 is so unbelievably good that I've chosen not to believe in it. I mean... look at it. It's freaking awesome! I can't wait to get this thing, if it reeeeaally exists, and stick it in that nifty FX-7 cubby hole that comes built into the Luke w/Bacta tank. Sweet!

I read one of JT's other posts and I think he's right, Snaggletooth will be short. The more I think about this fig, the more I like it! Gets my vote for one of the strangest figures to date and I man that in a good way.

My expectations have been exceeded with this figure. I'm amazed! And the fact that it and the Bacta Tank are coming out within a few months of each other impresses me even more! With the exception of Tatooine Jar-Jar, the figures have been consistently great in the POTJ line this year, and it looks like they are just getting better.

These assortments just get better and better. I can't wait to see what will come next. Everything is great. I want to know what they mean by Eeth Koth's new lightsaber. :D

My signature used to be "Come on Hasbro, would it help if I got out and pushed?" Not anymore!! There has been so much improvement in the past year... how can I complain?

Did I read that right? Does FX-7 have 19 arms? Holy crap! Next I'm gonna find out it's made out of metal!!!!

I am totally floored with the presumably good quality of this latest wave. The Imp. officer and RFT are balls-to-the-wall articulated and the Queen figure looks to be the best so far.

One question: Are these actual production figures, you know, right off the line or are they prototypes. I'm concerned that the final product won't look as good as these beauties.

One last thing. What's up with Snaggletooth. It looks like he's wearing a sloppy toupee that got wet.

They're definitely prototypes, you can see some of the gappy joints, hand-painted parts that are already wearing, and other little foibles. I've found it SOMEWHAT rare that Hasbro doesn't get their final products at least 85% as good looking as their prototypes lately, so I'm not concerned.

The Snags figure is ugly and balding because the Snags character is ugly and balding. ;)
