I can find most if not all of these on eBay for a reasonable price, so which ones are worth getting? Thanks all! :D I found basically none of these in stores, and Im looking to pick up a few, but Im not sure if theyre worth it, so just lemme know what you guys think. Thanks again!:)


Also, Thanks to www.rebelscum.com (http://www.rebelscum.com) for the pix!

In short, I'd say all of them. These were all decent figures because they were all (gasp!) :eek: new sculpts and :eek: feature pretty good articulation.

In particular I liked both the Lukes (Jabba's Palace & Hoth Attack). I know you want your DSII Luke, believe me I do too, but this may be the best Luke figure Hasbro has ever done (outside of the Bespin one which would have been perfect if they would have taken that button out of his back). The Hoth one is cool too, but to appreciate this figure you have to get the Wampa so you can make his little cave playset.

Wave 4 & 5 are both filled with all winners. I also particularly like the Han Endor Strike one. There are virtually no variations left to do for the core characters, so it was pretty cool to see something original like this.

All but the Hoth soldier.

I'd have to say get all of 'em. The Saga line was one of the best around in the way of sculpt, paint, and never released figures and the ones you named are no slouches.

04-03: Luke Skywalker (Hoth Attack)
04-04: Luke Skywalker (Jabba's Palace)
04-05: R2-D2 (Jabba's Sail Barge)
04-06: R1-G4 (Tatooine Transaction)
04-07: Lando Calrissian (Jabba's Sail Barge)
04-13: Dutch Vander: Gold Leader (Battle of Yavin)
04-14: TIE Fighter Pilot (Battle of Yavin)
04-15: Captain Antilles (Tantive IV Invasion) ** weakest of my recommendations **
04-17: Dengar (Executor Meeting) ** best of my recommendations, I gave it figure of the year (http://www.sirstevesguide.com/news/?m=show&id=30975) **
04-18: Bossk (Executor Meeting)
The Endor Generals wave came out in the OTC line as well so they're easier to find in that packaging, I wouldn't recommend any of them that much, I think Lando is the best of the bunch tho'.

Like Ryno said, Luke Hoth is best enjoyed with the Wampa set. It's still a really nice figure on its own though.


Captain Antilles is a bit of a disappointment in my book, his face sculpt is very simplistic and he can't straighten his arms, but he is an authentic new figure and somewhat less boring than Dodonna.

The Han Endor strike is pretty lame. So is the Holo Luke. The rest are some of the best figures around. The Hoth Trooper isn't bad if you only have one, it's not a figure you could army build.

I was prob. gonna get all of wave 5, as well as the tie pilot and red leader. The tie pilot looks great, I cant believe I missed it, yet I was out of the game for a while, so that would explain it. Thanks for all the help!

Isn't Admiral Ozzel basicly the same body as the new Tarkin.

I would say dont get these:
Captain Antilles (pretty lame by himself.. his neck is wierd- they needed a Vader in this wave that could be choking him)
Gold Leader (OK figure.. I thought his face was really reallyweird, but the rest of him is fine)
Jan Dodonna (Dont know why I got an extra- but I found it at a target with about 10 more of him on clearance for $.94.., nice concept but bad figure)
Holographic Luke :rolleyes:
Hoth Trooper (just bad.. even worse face)
Have fun on ebay! :crazed:
