This list should make alot of OT lovers VERY happy.

Though the main character rehashes kinda suck. The Chewie being the only exception to the rule...When did Chewie wear leg wraps, or is this edited scene material?

When did Han and Luke wear head wraps? Unless it's in some literature I missed somewhere. :confused:

The Han, Luke, & Chewie figures could be from the sandstorm (http://starwars.yahoo.com/photos/rotj-sandstorm) scene cut from ROTJ. I might get them if the new look is different enough.

I already have a complete drum from the two Umpass-stay figures I bought. Still, I'll get Ak-Rev. Don't know who Bane Malor is. Some Batman villain I think.

Hopefully we'll get the Ewok 2-pack. I'll take Endor inhabitants over more Clones any day.

Han and Luke had head wraps in the sandstorm scene (http://www.starwarz.com/tbone/index.php?categoryid=11&p2_articleid=441) that was cut from ROTJ. I'm guessing that's where the Chewie comes from, too. Too bad there's not a Slave Leia with a cape and hat; that would be the coolest possible figure from that scene.

Vader with multiple-piece removeable helmet is the only Vader left to make that I'd definitely buy. Hasbro's said before it's impossible, but maybe they figured out a way.

The rest... Wow.

Yarna: I hope this is true. I can't tell you how much I hope this is true. They could make just her, and not another OT figure all year, and I'd be pleased with 2008.

Bane Malar: Definitely one of the coolest denizens of Jabba's Palace. Doallyn looks similar, so maybe the early rumors of him were a mixup?

Ak-Rev... and the other half of the drum! Awesomeness!!

Leektar and Nippet: Freaking sweet. Two of the best Ewok designs we've not seen so far. Packing a warrior with an unrelated Wokling is a bit of a weird idea, but I'm not about to complain.

Edit: You posted a link to the sandstorm scene, too! Ah, if only your post were there when I started, I wouldn't have had to look it up. :) BTW, here's pics of and info about Bane Malar (http://starwars.wikia.com/wiki/Bane_Malar), Leektar (http://starwars.wikia.com/wiki/Leektar), and Nippet (http://starwars.wikia.com/wiki/Nippet).

Here's Bane Malar (http://starwars.wikia.com/wiki/Bane_Malar). Definitely one cool looking dude. :thumbsup:

I hope Hasbro takes this opportunity to give us a proper SA Jabba's Palace Han Solo and doesn't just stick soft-goods wraps on the TSC Han Carbonite. Same goes with the Luke figure.

I don't know how to take the Yarna news, if it's true, then I already know what the one figure I'm looking forward to most for 2008 is. Until I see some prototypes, however, I'm not buying it.

Jedi_Kal-El
02-05-2008, 02:49 PM
Ok, now my memory is running again. I forgot about the sandstorm.

Again I agree with you Chux. The Leia would be a great addition, and possibly, Lando too just to round out the scene.

The rest of the wave sound great as well. Don't really need another Vader, but I'll jump at a 2-piece helmet version.

Yarna...Hells yeah:thumbsup:

Ewoks, can never have enough.

Ak-Rev and Bane, Yeah Baby!!!!

I hope this rumor turns out to be true. Hope we see these at Toy Fair, but I'm guessing Comic Con would be more likely since these are slated for later in the year.

Yeah, she has been mistakenly rumored quite a few times now, right? Once again, I'm keeping my fingers crossed.

If it's true, she'd better be spectacular, since Hasbro waited three (?) years after their April Fool's joke to produce her.

02-05-2008, 03:12 PM
If they make Yarna I won't complain about the other figures made or not made this year. Period.

But I also won't believe it until I see the figure prototype.

And why do we have to wait until FALL for a basic original trilogy figure?

And I am concerned that they will pull a Jerjerrod or Dannik Jeriko with Yarna, make a terrible figure, and people won't buy it and say, "See, I told you Yarna wouldn't sell." Please just let it be a good sculpt in a neutral pose.

As for Luke, Han, and Chewie. After ten years I don't recall anyone proposing figures from the sandstorm scene, that no one has ever even seen. Very odd choices, but a unique idea. I would have thought Han, Luke, and Chewie from the Ewok spits would have made more sense.

I'd rather have Doallyn than Bane, but I'll take any Jabba's palace character.

Why wouldn't the baby Ewok be with its mother?

I'll buy all of these figures.

02-05-2008, 04:05 PM
Well, considering The Scum has been accurate about the other waves, I'd say this one is probably true. Which means...

YARNA! YARNA! YARNA!!!!!

And with more Ewoks, Ak-Rev, Bane Malar, Vader with three-pice helmet, and sandstorm figures, this mght be the first wave since '05 that I get all of the figures of.

The big question about Vader is, who's face is going to be under that helmet?

They should just throw everyone a curve ball and put David Prowse's likeness under there.:D

I can already see a TSC Han and a Saga or TAC Luke with just soft goods over their heads, and painted like Sandtroopers. The Chewie will probably be the same one they packed in TSC since they like that mold, though I myself would go for the VOTC version painted like a Sandtrooper. I'll make more judgements when I see photos I guess.

Yarna should be done just once with a great sculpt and articulation. Knowing how wanted she's been, I hope Hasbro delivers on her.

Edit: That would kick serious butt BB with the Prowse face under the Vader helmet.:thumbsup:

I'll remain cautiously optimistic about this. As GG said, they've been right so far this year (and the past few years, for that matter), but who knows.

Darth Vader - I bet it'll be the Evolutions one with the new helmet. I hope they also retooled the hand so it can be removable at the accurate point.
Sandstorm figures - likely just reissues with new stuff on them. Very weird choices, so hopefully they don't suck.
Ewoks - these look cool; any new Ewoks will be great, especially if one's a wokling.
Ak-Rev - thankfully they're not waiting too long after Umpass-Stay.
Yarna - I really, really hope so, but don't want to get too excited too early. If they made her the same year as the AT-TE, that would be freaking insanely awesome.
Bane Malar - I don't recognize him and would rather have Doallyn, but he looks pretty cool.

DarkArtist
02-05-2008, 05:01 PM
I'm not really liking this wave, it sort f reminds of the 3 wave of Saga 2 (repacks with some accessories)

Yarna might be cool, but I still can't believe Hasbro will make her.
Ewoks are always cool
Vader with multi-piece helmet - Ok if it's done right
Luke and Han Meh, will wait and see. I will say this if they do make these 2 figures then we should also get Leia and Lando as well.

Makes me wonder if Lucas is going to now re-release ROTJ with the lost footage of the Sandstorm scene

That would be cool!
I wish he would do that for "A New Hope" also. And any other deleted scenes.
This is the first time I've ever seen the "Sandstorm" cuts. Man where have I been? Is there any more deleted scene shots?


We did get the deleted scene Biggs in academy outfit, so it's not beyond the realm of possibility we get the Sandstorm figures.

jedi master sal
02-05-2008, 10:11 PM
Darth Vader (Multi-Piece Helmet): Maybe, but I can definitely wait on this one.
Han Solo (Desert Headscarf): Cut scene...again, I'll wait on it, not in a rush
Luke Skywalker (Desert Headscarf): See entry for Han
Chewbacca (Desert Leg Wraps): See entry for Luke
Ewok 2-pack (Leektar & Nippet): Hell's yeah. But why not the Ewok mom? This would have made a cute little MOTHER'S day set... missed opportunity.
Ak-Rev with Jabba's Band THUNDER Drum: For sure. I'll get two again like I did Umpass Stay.
Yarna d'al Gargan: Hell yeah again. It's about time.
Bane Malor: Meh, I'll wait on this one too.

So it looks like I WON'T be buying a case for this wave. No army builders which is good for me. as well, not too much for custom fodder for my needs. I'll prolly get dupes on the Ewoks and Bane, besides the drum, but that's it. Cheap wave for me and I'm happy about that.

Jargo
02-06-2008, 07:42 AM
actually, I changed my mind. If this brand new Millenium Falcon comes about it might be worth getting the sandstorm figures. but only if they did Lando and Leia as well.

I love Ewoks, just hate the way they aren't all of the same quality. next Ewok 2-pack has to be Logray and Wicket. the POTF2 sculpts let the team down.

Vader i have zero interest in. not just this vader but any vader. any sculpt any version. I never want to see another vader again. He's as threatening as a child with a wet towel and boring.

Bane Malar/lor i need proof that he's in the movie. only evidence I've ever seen is a CCG image. and anecdotal musings. do they mean Bane Malar/or or Sgt. Doallyn? often confused.

Yarna and Ak Rev would be uber sweet if true.

Darth Vader (Multi-Piece Helmet) [*shrug* possibly interested]
Han Solo (Desert Headscarf) [not interested]
Luke Skywalker (Desert Headscarf) [not interested]
Chewbacca (Desert Leg Wraps) [not interested]
Ewok 2-pack (Leektar & Nippet) [Sure, why not? I'll get 'em]
Ak-Rev with Jabba's Band Drum [Absolutely]
Yarna d'al Gargan [Holy crap YES!!!!!!]
Bane Malor [possibly interested]


Maybe now everyone will get the correct ROTJ Jabba's palace Luke they've been wanting.

But do you think that Hasbro will be able to resist painting "sand" all over the trousers and other parts of this figure? I don't trust them to not do that.

Wow. I'm really looking forward to this wave if it turns out to be reality.

Yarna ~ Can't say how much I'm looking forward to her after all these years. I honestly never thought we'd be getting her this year, and I thought she'd turn out to be an exclusive.

Bane Malar ~ It would make more sense if it was Sgt. Doallyn, as he has an EU tie to Yarna. But Bane is just as cool!

Ak-Rev ~ I was expecting this so it's not really a suprise. Looking forward to ths one as well!

Luke, Han, Chewie ~ will be interesting to see how these are done, but I have my favorite versions of the core characters already.

Darth Vader ~ don't really need another Vader, but it makes sense that Hasbro will cram as many Vaders into the line as they can this year.

Ewoks ~ not really familiar with the individual Ewok names but I'm looking forward to these as well. The ones last year were nearly flawless so these will be just as good I'm sure!

Now I'm still waiting for a Cane Adiss, BG-J38, Wooof, Yoxgit, Jess and Laudica. Heres hopin for next year!

I don't think I'm interested in the cut-scene sandstorm figures unless someone can recollect some EU scene I can use them for that might look interesting. (OK, technically cut scenes are EU, but what I meant is some other comic or novel where they wore sandstorm protection).

I might actually be sold on another Vader. "Nooooooooooooooooo!"

I'll buy Yarna. I said it before. I don't object to the figure. I'm just not dying for her like some of you.

Ak-Rev... and the other half of the drum! I'll take it. I only bought 1 Umpass Stay. I planned on them doing this.

Leektar and Nippet: EWOKS!!! Coolness. Now we get a warrior and a wokling? Why not the wokling's mother? And where is Lumat and Warrock, let alone a better (carded) sculpt of Paploo (who was played by Kenny R2D2 Baker).

Bane Malar is freaking cool! I'll have to buy extras of him to put in other scenes for "population." That'll be a nice figure for:

Coruscant's streets
Mos Espa's streets
Jabba's of course

Yeah. It looks like I'll buy at least 3 of him.

Tycho
02-06-2008, 11:05 AM
Jargo, I totally forgot about the new Millennium Falcon potential for the sandstorm figures.

I could have the most characters by the ship that way (although Luke takes off with R2 in his X-wing at some point).

SANDSTORM:

Luke
R2
C-3PO
Han
Chewie
Leia
Lando

ANH DEATH STAR APPROACH:

Luke
R2
C-3PO
Han
Chewie
Obi-Wan

ANH DEATH STAR ESCAPE:

Luke
R2
C-3PO
Han
Chewie
Leia

EMPIRE STRIKES BACK HOTH ESCAPE:

C-3PO
Han
Chewie
Leia

EMPIRE STRIKES BACK BESPIN ESCAPE (repeat for Shadows of the Empire):

Luke
R2
C-3PO
Lando
Chewie
Leia

RETURN OF THE JEDI ENDOR ATTACK:

Lando
Nien Numb
Rebel Soldier 1
Rebel Soldier 2
Rebel Soldier 3 (presumably in gun turret)
Rebel Soldier 4 (presumably in gun turret)
There might've been a 5th Rebel Soldier at the engineering station.

Tycho
02-06-2008, 12:01 PM
So, are you saying you're getting SIX of the new Millenium Falcons?


Oh no! I think the ship could be too big and hard to find display space for as it is.

I'll try to crew it with a group of characters I don't have one of my 1978 mold ships staffed with.

I have in '78s:

ANH Death Star Approach
ESB Hoth Escape / Mynock Hunt / Bespin Arrival
SOTE: Coruscant Escape / Xizor's Skyhook Destruction (leaving out the droids)

So I'll probably do ANH Death Star Escape and get updated figures of that group with Leia rather than Obi-Wan. If there are 2 gunner stations on that ship, it'd be nice, too. However with the boys in the gun wells, and Leia and Chewie in the cockpit, the hold will be rather empty. I might just do Lando and Nien Numb in ROTJ for this reason. It'd be a shame to staff the ship without her real captain though.

The other thing I could do is "collage the scene" and put Luke and Leia at the chess table in the main hold as well. I could finally have an excuse to buy that 2006 Luke with the poncho, maybe find a VOTC Han (never bought it) and go from there.

02-06-2008, 12:27 PM
I'm really excited about Yarna, Bane, ewoks, and Ak-Rev. Vader could be cool as well but it depends on how it looks. The sandstorm scene figures I will get but having never scene the scene it doesn't create desire.

I guess I'm just the opposite of you, because I would like to see Hasbro focus more on ROTJ to fill some of the gaping holes in that line. I know that updates of Ree-Yees, Yak Face, Gamorrean Guard, Admiral Ackbar, Klaatu, etc. might not seem the most interesting; but, to me, they are a million times more interesting than figures of the Tonnika Sisters or Willrow Hood.

Possibly because Yarna is so UNLIKE an action figure, and/or that she was actually a character in the movie and had the limelight for 3 or 4 seconds... That's longer than some of the cantina patrons that have been made into plastic.

She's only onscreen for a couple of seconds, but she's one of the most memorable elements of ROTJ. Especially if you watched ROTJ while entering a certain stage of life. I saw ROTJ for the first time in 1986, just after my 13th birthday. Let's just say that I was fascinated with her in a way that I wouldn't have been if I had seen the movie in 1983, when I was ten.

Of course, I'm completely over that now. I just think she's such an unlikely candidate for an action figure that she absolutely needs to be made.

Plus she represents the differing standards of beauty that you would expect in a universe like Star Wars, which just adds credibility to the story.

because she survived. because they've made every other court entertainer. because she's not some skinny hollywood studios sandwiched in for the sole reason that the actress is dating the producer bimbo. because she's alien. because she's more interesting than yet another clonetrooper. because we've been asking for her since the year moses took his first baby steps. because she tag teams with Oola. because she's 'jabba's favorite dancer'. because she's more bang for your buck than a re-issued skiff guard. because she's in the movie fulfilling a proper role in a fully thought out way unlike ICMG. because she's ugly. because she's beautiful in her ugliness..

Dude, i'm with you i don't get her following either.

But what scares me about this figure is two things:

1.) She'll be a peg warmer and Hasbro will take a second look at what to make next for the basic line, or cancel it all together and focus on Clone Wars, and ETC.

2.) She'll be short packed beyond belief and no one will ever find her at retail. Which will bring out the scalpers.

Yarna would be an ideal SDCC/HTS Exclusive. I gotta think it'll be DOA at retail, unless they short pack the hell out of it. I'm a huge OT fan, love Jabba's palace...but this character just does nothing for me. Woudl a kid really want this?

BUT I am really happy for you guys who have wanted this for so long. The passion for this potential figure has been pretty great to watch, and it would appear as if Hasbro wants to honor your patronage. A love note to the fanboys. It's how I felt about Hermie this year.

Hermi didn't pegwarm. If the figure ratio in the case is logical, Yarna won't either. I won't deny she doesn't have the mass appeal to kids and "casual" collectors, but, unless they make her four to a case, I don't foresee a problem.

Hasbro has actually been doing better about guesstimating demand lately. Figures like C-3PO w/ Salacious, Umpass-Stay, Pax Boknik, and especially the red Naboo Soldier could've been surefire pegwarmers. I've seen C-3PO twice, Umpass-Stay three times, Pax Boknik once (and wish I'd gotten him then!), and only found the Naboo Soldier yesterday.

Six boobs, Tycho. Six boobs.

On an attractive girl, uh, maybe that would be interesting. The 3-some that characters in Total Recall and Star Trek V had were sort of interesting. While I don't like totally flat ladies, I'm more interested in several other private parts that girls have. 6 doesn't do anything more for me than 2 would. I only have 2 hands anyway. But I could see why Dexter Jettster might really like her.



Possibly because Yarna is so UNLIKE an action figure,
Which will be the first reason why JediTricks hates her. And she might be a tough sell for kids, but I'm not really concerned with either of those reasons myself. It's rather cool that she'll be more unique.


The fact that she was supposed to be a vintage figure, but ten scrapped.
Alright. I guess that's interesting, too. But I'm not sure I would have bought her in the vintage days for any other reason but to "collect her" as a completist - which I was back then. Today I'd buy her for diorama filler. So I can't say I won't buy her. She's just not the priority for me that she is for some of you.


She's only onscreen for a couple of seconds, but she's one of the most memorable elements of ROTJ. Especially if you watched ROTJ while entering a certain stage of life. I saw ROTJ for the first time in 1986, just after my 13th birthday. Let's just say that I was fascinated with her in a way that I wouldn't have been if I had seen the movie in 1983, when I was ten.

I'm not going to even comment on that one. Her six "boobs" always looked like rolls of FAT to me, btw. I was kind of disgusted by her and never wanted to really take a good look so I subconsciously divert my eyes during her parts. Still do.


I just think she's such an unlikely candidate for an action figure that she absolutely needs to be made.

That argument should also support Wioslea, Jocasta Nu, Nyrat Agira, and Ice Cream Maker Guy (Wilrow Hood).


Plus she represents the differing standards of beauty that you would expect in a universe like Star Wars, which just adds credibility to the story.

Definitely true. However, what I want to represent in my dioramas can still be my standard for beauty, hence I stand by digitally adding Summer Glau into every Star Wars movie and making her action figures ;)


because she's not some skinny hollywood studios sandwiched in for the sole reason that the actress is dating the producer bimbo.

That is one more reason why I'd like to be a film producer! :thumbsup:


because she's in the movie fulfilling a proper role in a fully thought out way unlike ICMG.

Are you kidding me? She's just a dancer. Wilrow Hood might've saved Lando's last quart of chocolate-chip cookie dough! And what if it was pistachio? Did you consider that?


because she's ugly. because she's beautiful in her ugliness..

Cringe. But she's kind of humanoid. That makes her more ugly. I think Tonbuck Toora is an alien ugly female. There you go.


Yarna would be an ideal SDCC/HTS Exclusive.

I think it's Hasbro's business plan to sell many times more figures than they can just unload as exclusives though. I'm not sure, but maybe they lost money on doing the McQuarrie R2, 3PO, and Luke. (???)

I agree Chux -- they've definitely gotten somewhat better at prognosticating retail expectations. Also, I didn't say Hermie warmed -- I was saying that my excitment for that character was comparable to others' excitment for Yarna. He definitely never warmed.

While we're on the subject though, I wonder if the figures you mentioned didn't get a chance to warm simply because those waves, as a whole, shipped much later and perhaps in much smaller numbers than the first 4 waves. Wave 4 is still the default (read: current) shelf product in the greater Seattle area. While waves 5, 6, 7, 7.5 & 8 all have made blink-and-miss-it appearances, 1-4 have been dominant and the warming figures (Jedi Luke, CZ-4, Elis, Biggs X-Wing, Galactic Marine, Stormtrooper) just continue to pile up. I suspect we'll see the later 2007 waves continue to emerge on shelf in the next 3-6 months, concurrent with the 2008 product, but only as waves 1-4 of the 2007 product get clearanced, BOGO'd or returned to the manufacturer.

Actually I think JediTricks has argued she should be made and plans to buy her if she gets made. I am not sure she would have been near the top of his list, but I believe he argued she had much more screen time and was much more intersting than a lot of figures that HAVE been made. There is just not a rational reason to not have made this figure in light of those that have been made.

Thanks, even though it feels pointless sometimes. I first started campaigning for the Skiff Guards back in 2002 and in the last six years we have seen... zero all-new Skiff Guard figures made by Hasbro. Of course, we had the 2004 Lando Skiff and a carded repaint of the 1999 Barada figure in 2006; but those can hardly be considered all-new figures.

When they first came out in, what was it 98,99? I was stoked but now they are way over due for resculpts. I'm also really REALLY wanting a resculpt of Walrus Man SOOOOO bad. A pretty major character and he's got nothing but thrown on the back burner :cry:

OMG!OMG!!OMG!!!

Yarna looks great! (keeping in mind that she's a hand painted prototype). I can't believe Hasbro's really making her.:love:

Han and Chewie look pretty amazing also. I like that they put the bandages of Chewie's leg from when he got shot on the Skiff.

I want to see an image of Vader under that mask to see if I plan to buy him or not.

The build-a-droid figures look alright. Although I'm not sure about that second droid, where is that one from?

Jedi_Kal-El
02-16-2008, 12:02 PM
Yarna doesn't look half bad(though some may disagree with me). Han has that same anorexic body. Kinda looks like with Luke they rescuplted it to a DS2 version, but can't really make it out with his arm in the way. Chewie doesn't look like anything special. Vader will be nice and the last one I ever need to buy...IF...the helmet stays on good. Pleased about the Ewoks, always nice to add a few more to the shelf. Bane and Ak-Rev look nice and I'm a little mixed on the build a droid. The second one looks stupid IMO. Not bad though.

bigbarada
02-16-2008, 12:17 PM
All prototypes look a little dodgy, so you just have to try to look beyond that. Her flesh tone is clearly painted on, so she'll look better once her body parts are actually molded in flesh colored plastic.

bigbarada
02-16-2008, 12:38 PM
After studying the photos some more, I notice that all the joints look a little "gappy" but, again, that's probably just because they are prototypes.

Han almost looks like they imported a head over from the Indiana Jones line. Probably one of the better Harrison Ford likenesses made. He'll make a great Skiff Battle Han Solo.

Bane Malar looks really cool and he's clearly not Doallyn from the Skiff Battle. Still a cool and memorable new Jabba's Palace character.

Honestly, the Ewok looks like crap, but I'm hoping that it's just because he's a proto. The Wokling with the basket is awesome though.:love:

Luke doesn't seem to be wearing his vest.

Tycho
02-16-2008, 12:57 PM
I like a few of these figures - maybe less than half.

Yarna is disgusting. I suppose I'll buy her because she goes in the Jabba scene, but she's revolting to me.

Bane and Ak-Rev look very cool.

The Ewok looks to be Keolkeech which I'd be thrilled to have. No he may not be a perfect likeness up to the best quality of past Ewoks, but I'm excited to get him and a baby to boot, too. Why the baby doesn't come with a mama Ewok I don't know though.

I'm glad that NONE of the build-a-droid figures shown thus far are any that I want, so I'm not really tempted to buy much from this line.

Disappointed with the figures, but thrilled to save money and space.

If the rumors of the huge Millennium Falcon pan out though, I may have to get the sandstorm figures just to have something different to crew the ship with.

Mr. JabbaJohnL
02-16-2008, 12:58 PM
Holy sweet nuts, Yarna is so ugly yet so beautiful at the same time. :love: Thankfully they're FINALLY making her.

The sandstorm figures are somewhat odd. Han's too skinny, Chewie's strange, and Luke shouldn't have his glove yet (though hopefully he'd be a good DSII one without the wrap. These were just odd choices for figures.

Bane Malar looks cool.

Vader looks like the Evolutions mold retooled, again. At least the helmet is in two parts; I've wanted that feature for a long, long time. It looks like his hand can't come off at the accurate point, but whatever.

The big Ewok will be good to have, but I'm really excited for the Wokling. :D

I wanted Ak-Rev more than Umpass-Stay, so I'm glad they're making him. It'll be nice to finish the drum as well.

Those droids are pretty cool, I wonder how many more there will be. It'll be nice to have a more modern R4 droid. What's the other one, an R6 or R7? Totally unexpected but I recognize it from similar droids at the Celebrations so it's cool.

I think the han head sculpt sucks. blow the pic up to full size and the face looks like he has facial palsy. either that or suffered a stroke. mind you with the laconical way Ford acts it's sometimes hard to tell if he has had one or not.

Yarna is good. not perfect but not as bad as i feared. the elbow and thigh joints are a bit ugly and it's a shame the headress doesn't come off but she's good enough to go in the collection. I hope they maintain the face make-up as it is in that pic.

Bane Malar looks a lot better than i imagined. good enough to buy in fact. head is a little large but that's probably coz his legs are too skinny. won't matter once he goes into the collection display.

Ak Rev, colourful. decent. i'll buy that.

Luke looks like poodoo. Chewie doesn't look too bad. bet the paint apps get screwed up though.

Ewoks are cool.

The last time I felt like this was almost twenty years ago, reading GIJoe #93 for the first time. You turn one page and BAM! There is Snake Eyes, fully unmasked, in all his hideous glory. It's like the grandiose mystery for which we've waited for ages and ages is finally solved, and you're just left without any words.

The Wokling, Bane, and the rest, though amazing, are just anticlimactic following that glorious unveiling of Yarna.
