I couldn't find a thread for Wave 7, here's some carded and loose Hi-Res pics of Wave 7.

The Ewoks look great and loads of custom paint potential there!
Tycho is an ok fig.
I don't really need an R2, but the neting and other accessories are what's going to get me to buy it. Sure I could probably buy stuff like that for cheaper, but then I'd have to put it together and I'm feeling lazy...
I can see concept Han customs already. I'll get two of this fig. (1carded, 1 loose)
I actually dig the Spirit Anakin. Though I don't like the frayed edges of the material, that's an easy fix with scissors. I think I may just get two of him when I was only planning on one before.

Tycho and the Ewoks look sweet carded. The TAC rules, plain and simple. I can't believe I ever doubted that card design.

I like the personailty they gave to the face sculpt of the A-Wing Pilot. Much better than the usual blandness of Rebel pilots. I'll get one of those, one of the concept Han, and the Ewoks.

Anakin and R2 are both easy passes for me, though they both look great carded.

Ditto here...A-wing Pilot, han, and the ewoks are the only ones I will get. The R2 is tempting with that HUGE cargo net, but I am going to pass. The Anakin spirit figure looks great, but I have been cutting back on star wars some...so I will probably pass.

Anakin's Spirit looks like butt on a taco shell. :dead:

The Ewoks look okay, but (and I can't be 100% sure of this) it looks like the heads and one hand were the only parts not reused between the two of them.

So that's what Tycho's namesake is going to look like up close. Why he's just a kid.
This wave looks outstanding. I'm glad they went with Harrison Ford instead of this Italian Hercules Han Solo look though.
That sheer material for Spirit Anakin looks like a**. Hope they come up with something better. Though an easy fix like Sal said.
:thumbsup::thumbsup: for this wave.

Will definitely get the Ewoks and Han Concept, will probably pass on the rest.

I like the accessories that come with R2-D2, would work well with the Ewok Village.

I really like all five of these.

At first it looks like the Ewoks have the same body, but it looks like their pelvis areas are different (look at Romba's knife holster). I love their ball-joint shoulders and Graak's little arrows.

I'm a little disappointed that they haven't fixed Tycho's helmet. I wonder why the straps are positioned like that in the package? I can see that part being removable for the purpose of fitting him in a ship better, but that's just weird.

I don't like how Anakin's robes are frayed; that always gets worse when you pick up the figures. And even in the afterlife, they can't get his saber correct. :p

I didn't know that R2-D2 was going to come with the piece to carry him (either that or I just forgot), but I'm very glad. That net looks sweet. They should've used the R4-G9 mold but whatever.

Concept Han looks cool, like all the others.

I'm glad to see the A-Wing Pilot no longer has a giraffe neck. The helmet is still wrong, but Hasbro did say that it would be too late to fix it for this release, so hopefully they'll get it right for the rerelease.

I don't care what anyone says, that's Lumat on that card.

Steve just posted bigger pics: http://www.sirstevesguide.com/index.php?categoryid=13&p2_articleid=1033

I'm not digging the face on Anakin Spirit, but I like the robes and see-through plastic, so I am on the fence there.

R2 is a'ight, kinda lazy that they didn't bother doing the buzzsaw from the open bay already built into the figure - even if it had been in the wrong place it'd be better than not doing it.

Tycho looks ok, I'm not stunned by the work there but it's acceptable and they didn't do the giraffe neck. His helmet is way out in left field though, not accurate to anything. Not sure what's the deal with the straps.

Ewoks look ewoky, nothing special, nothing bad, kinda tubby. I don't mind that they're using most of the same parts.

Concept Han is a frustration, the lavender is wrong wrong wrong, and the head is just painful because it's not bad but it's not right - the beard and mustache are wonky, the lower face isn't long enough, and the eyes are wrongity wrong wrong. But they got some details right too, and overall he "feels" close to the material so I'm going to get him and wish he was better.

I don't care what anyone says, that's Lumat on that card.

Is that net going to be big enough to hold Luke, Han, Chewie, Artoo and Threepio as when they were all caught up in it in the movie?

It doesn't look like it will be large enough to hold all of them. If you want to lay it down on the floor like a picnic blanket, sure there's enough room :p

I'll probably get everything from this wave except Spirit Anakin.

they look really neat! I always wanted a all new sclupt a wing pilot with SA!

I dig them all with the exception being Spirit Anakin. I'll pass on him and keep the old Anakin spirit figure instead. Concept Han looks cool but he'll be a pain in the butt to find. The Tycho figure provides a nice, different look from most of the Rebel pilots weve gotten. The Ewoks are great looking. I will be buying the R2 mainly for the accessories he comes with, those are cool.

They all look ok except for the spirit of anakin. Instead of soft goods they should have sculpted it the same way they did the OTC spirit of obi-wan kenobi.

Tycho doesn't look like his comic art, but he looks like Luke Skywalker more than any other Luke in the TAC line to date.

if only they made r2's using the head turning/leg retractable mold. buying that r2 regardless for it's accessories though =P
