Reports of the new Endor BP and the wave 4 of Legacy are popping up all over the net. Anyone find anything yet?

Nothing in Ohio from what i've seen. I just want the Organa's and FX-6 from the Legacy wave as the rest are pretty much repacks/repaints. I think FX-6 might be a repack, but I can't remember.

I have not seen any of wave 4 anywhere around here, but some of 3 is still lingering. At least they are not too hard to find here.

What I am really trying to find are some of the wave 3 from the Clone Wars, but I will leave that for the appropriate thread.

The lack of lightsabers does not bother me, I'm not going to be using my old Grievouses anymore so the new one can have all of theirs. I am bummed about the cape. I guess Hasbro just wanted to make sure they could rerelease this figure on a card again sometime soon.

I agree...the fact that it only comes with 2 sabers does not mean I will not buy it, because I will. I just think its a bit odd to feature a figure who wields 4 sabers at that point in the film and then only stick 2 in the package. I guess the non-collectors or kids are the ones who will have to find another way around this. Folks like us have lightsabers galore for figures, but some of them may not.

Even the CW Grievous came with 4 sabers so I don't see why the Legacy wave 3 one didn't.

I tempted to order from HTS ("MDCREW" will save you 20% but you still have to pay shipping) but most likely I'll see these at retail first so I'll hold off on it.

Well Grievous and FX were available online at HTS (good prices and with Figrin's code even more reasonable) but if you want the droid you'll have to get the whole wave or trade for parts or buy them on eBay or something.

Jedi_Master_Guyute
10-22-2008, 02:02 PM
Unless i'm reading it wrong, the Grievous and FX-6 figures from HTS have a scheduled release date of 12/08.

And thanks for the heads up and new info, folks!! I thought this wave was mostly repacks; looks like I should be on the lookout during the coming weeks. :thumbsup:

This is so frustrating!!! I have only recently found some of Wave 3, they are virtually impossible to find! Now people are finding wave 4!?! Ugh, life can be quite unfair.

I agree with you Chuxter, thumbs down on the lack of a cape. He is to scale, and the mold looks good, so why screw this up by leaving out an important piece like that?

Anyone seen the Thrawn and Xizor battle packs? I am assuming they are scheduled for release this year, but I may be wrong...

DarkJedi5
10-23-2008, 12:09 AM
Haven't seen the comic packs but I do know that all of wave three is on HTS. I would order what you need cause I'm not sure these will be on the pegs for much longer.

Same reason they initially did him so grossly out of scale: so they can re-release him in a year or two with a cape, and people will buy him again.

I wonder if they don't realize that business model may not work as well given the current economic conditions.

They are basically recession proof. When everyone else has been crashing, they don't fall as far (same with Mattel and companies like Johnson and Johnson). Toys and personal hygine products. Recession proof. Good for the portfolio.

I have to say Grievous looks awesome and towers over the Commander Faie figure. I'll post a pic soon. the detail in amazing, kinda sad about the fact that he has no cape though.

the arms locking is cool, a major improvement over the ROTS deluxe Grievous back in the day.

Commander Faie is another cool figure from the wave - new head sculpt and a much needed improvement over the Walmart Comic Pack version.

see pics

my bad on that i thought Faie was the clone with the comic pack. it actually is commander Keller with the walmart pack and Commander Faie is the new figure. i got them confused because they both sorta look alike.

DarkArtist
10-24-2008, 02:35 PM
Ok, so i opened FX-6 last night and I have to say I'm really not liking the figure at this point. all the arms pegs are either way too big or too thin for them to stick in the sockets and the thin ones keep falling out off. it's really frustrating.

both organa figures are nice and Breha is a welcome addtion to the line, can finally use the baby leia accessory with her and bail looks good since we now have him in the sorta tailored long jacket.

the 327th clone is a straight repack and the droid part is the chest (which also comes with Commander Faie) so this is easily a skip figure unless you army build.

Stass Allie is a nice figure and again another welcome addtion to the Jedi Order.

DarkJedi5
10-24-2008, 02:56 PM

I received my cases of this wave from StarWarsShop today. Weird since I had just e-mailed them a couple of days ago and they'd sent back a mass e-mail saying that a manufacturer's error had delayed them until November. I'm glad to have them sooner than later though.

Haven't seen this wave in the store yet. Wal-Mart had pegs full of stuff, but mostly CW and SL. I did find some of the newer SL figures though and picked up a BARC and ARC trooper. I found the B'omarr Monastery & Endor Generator Assault battle packs there as well. I've seen the comic packs through #7 (Leia/Tobbi Dala), but no Leia/Xizor or Thrawn/Karrde.

Thanks for the offer man, but last night I actually found one!! It was at the back of the peg, and I nearly missed it because there was nothing else from the new wave there.

I'm confused about something: are there 6 or 7 figures in this wave? I count 7, but I thought the BAD waves were supposed to be either 6 (for one "humanoid" droid) or 8 (for 2 R-series droids). If there is 7, does one have a repeated droid part?

10-28-2008, 02:45 PM
Just 6: Bail and Breha, Stass Allie, Grievous, Faie and FX-6.

True. Confusingly, though, his card lists him as being in the BAD line, even though he should be in the GH line since his droid part is redundant.

I thought the GH line was only going to include the Clone Trooper lockers with weapons. I believe the 327th is part of the line as he has a number in that wave yet is packed with the torso for the droid.

Bib Un-Fortuna
10-28-2008, 05:05 PM
Well at least my confusion is justified. All I've been able to come up with is that the 327th trooper is #BAD 29, and that he is in fact in wave 4, which means it is a 7-figure wave. So . . . to anyone who has found this wave (I have not, obviously), what figs come with what droid parts? Is this a complete 6-part droid with a repeat part in the 7th figure, or is it an extra torso/head from this wave?

Mr. JabbaJohnL
10-28-2008, 05:35 PM
You can see carded shots here (http://www.galactichunter.com/absolutenm/templates/full_article_template_1.asp?articleid=7399&zoneid=2), and also see which parts come with which figure. The 327th Trooper comes with the torso, and so does Commander Faie.

In the initial shipments of wave 4, each figure apart from the 327th Trooper will be packed two to a case. The trooper will show up in future revisions.

The Saga Legends figures have the lockers, while the Greatest Hits are part of the build-a-droid line. They just have different numbering than the regular Legacy figures.

That does seem odd that it is labeled as BD 29, since it appears to be a repack of the Evolutions ROTS clone.

I saw it today and am pretty sure that it's a repack of the Evolutions ROTS clone. It does come indeed with a BAD piece but it's not a piece that's exclusive to the figure. I forget exactly which piece (either an arm or a leg) comes with the Clone but if you buy all the other figures in the wave - Grievous, Bail, Breha, FX-6, Stass Allie, you won't need the arm or leg from the Clone in order to complete the droid.

Right now, I'm trying to figure out which FX-6 arms go into which slots.

Both the 327th Star Corps Clone Trooper and Commander Faie have the torso piece. I agree that they definitely should have labeled this figure as GH #5 instead of BD #29, since Hasbro has said you need all the BD droids to complete all the droids, and this one is misleading. He is, however different in a few small areas. The white stripe on the top of his helmet has been painted over with the yellow color, and he comes with both Evolutions guns molded in black. His body is otherwise identical to the clean version from the Betrayal on Felucia Battle Pack, as far as I can tell.

I got him yesterday, along with Stass and the Organa clan, at Wal-Mart.

Mad Slanted Powers

And by that I mean I can't get him to stand. I bought two of these figures and have trouble with both of these guys so it's either a problem with me or the fig. His feet have no holes so I can't use a stand and his legs are pretty soft and tend to buckle after a few hours. I even managed to use those clear plastic rubberbands to attach him to a stand but after a few hours he starts to lean and soon toples. Is this another good looking figure that won't stand or is it just me?

I managed to finally finish collecting wave 3 and 4, mostly from a small Target store.

My Toys R Us has been boarderlining on useless since Midnight Madness, it is really sad. They have the largest amount of space devoted to Star Wars, too! ::Sigh::.

Anways, I have not opened them yet, but the Grevious looks a little dissapointing. The body looks great, but the face is a mess. It is waaaay too dirty. It looks like the face of the delux ROTS Grevious. Combined with the fact that they did not include a cape, really detracts from the overall figure. If it is true that the figure does not stand up and does not have legholes...

I am determined to make this figure work. He may need some serious "modifications," so I will have to see. My preview ROTS figure with a cape swap has been my display figure up to this point. Beyond the lack of articulation and scale, that figure was as near perfect as they came. Perfect paint app.

I just hope we see the scaled figure fixed with an added cape, in a battle pack or something. Although, that is probably not cost effective, so I am not holding my breath.

Nothing frustrates me more than when Hasbro clearly listens to us (which I seriously do appreciate), but FAIL to deliver when they try to do it. Making things stand is clearly important to us, why would they not test this out? Failing the ability to stand on its own, why would they not try and include some foot holes? The cape...ugh. I know it increases their cost, but it is not a one-shot accessory, it can be used again and again with future Greviouses. Is there anyone out there that actually did not want the cape?

Sorry to rant, but this is the one figure of waves 3 and 4 that had me really, really excited. If not the figure that had me most excited for, this year. I foolishly expected more.

Mad Slanted Powers
11-17-2008, 08:29 PM
I've not found this Grievous yet, but I certain have had issues with other versions. The ankles on my TSC version seem to have warped to the point where he has to have his knees bent quite a bit for him to stand. According to RS, it is just a repaint of the sneak preview version, but it didn't do that.

The Clone Wars version doesn't have peg holes either. At first I thought this was a cool figure with the two sets of arms and the larger scale, but it lacks articulation and he keeps falling over.

Jedi_Master_Guyute
11-19-2008, 08:42 PM
Found Grievous today and from what I can see/tell being a MOC collector, I like him.

Still need FX-6 and Faie. I got a tip to look at Kohls and they had the rest of this wave, just not the two I needed. So if you haven't already, start checking Kohls stores. :thumbsup:

I like that he can have 2 arms or 4, nice touch....

Certainly the posability makes it a fun figure!

I don't think they went cheep, I just don't think there was enough plastic there to add them. I would have gladly traded a little accuracy to make a wad of plastic simlar to a heel so that the figure could have a foot peg. It's a great sculpt and a great fig and they'll get lots of use out of the mold but it just doesn't stand for very long.

I'm actually thinking of passing on the Grievous, even as excited as I was about him. Because I know a reissue with a cloak is almost guaranteed within two years.

DarkJedi5
11-20-2008, 02:29 PM
Frankly, I'd be surprised if it took that long, I bet he's out in a battle pack with a cloak by the end of '09. On the other hand, if you're a diorama builder like me, then not every Grievous figure needs a cape because he didn't wear one the entire movie....

11-20-2008, 02:35 PM
The head paint on this Grevious isn't all that great....can his head be swapt for other better paint versions?

*This fig stands up great against an Obi....

Finally found Faie and FX6 at Target today. Faie was on the shelf and I tracked down a very friendly target employee who gladly scanned the UPC and went to find the case in the back. This is great considering the last two target stores I went to refused to look in the back, with one guy being a total a--hole (I complained via the target website and got 10 bucks in coupons!). I just don't get why some stores are so stingy to collectors. Sure, some are pushy putzes, but most are pretty friendly. Oh, and we also help their sales A LOT. But I digress.

I like Faie although my initial thoughts were that with the large poncho thing it looks like his head is really small. Overall though, I like them. :thumbsup:

You can see carded shots here (http://www.galactichunter.com/absolutenm/templates/full_article_template_1.asp?articleid=7399&zoneid=2), and also see which parts come with which figure. The 327th Trooper comes with the torso, and so does Commander Faie.

Well it looks like Hasbro have screwed over UK collectors once again. I pre-ordered my wave 4 from Star Action Figures, and have just had this email:

Thanks for your order for the set of 6 Star Wars Legacy Collection Wave 4.

The stock has arrived today, and Hasbro have included a previous unannounced (in the UK) figures in the collection

The figures in question is http://www.staractionfigures.co.uk/clone-trooper-327th-star-corps---star-wars-legacy-collection-wave-4-3602-p.asp (http://www.staractionfigures.co.uk/clone-trooper-327th-star-corps---star-wars-legacy-collection-wave-4-3602-p.asp) Clone Trooper 327th Star Corps.

It appears that the way Hasbro have packed the build a droid part, this figure is required to complete the build a droid" for this set. I am emailing to find out whether or not you want to add this figure to your order for an additional 7?

Please could you confirm whether or not you wish me to add this figure to your order.


I apologise for the inconvenience, and this only come to light when the figures arrive late this afternoon.

I replied that I'd heard this figures comes with the same torso piece as Faie, and asked them to check and clarify. And this is their reply:

It does come with a vital part, one of the arms.

On the pics supplied by Hasbro and shown on site, it appears the droid parts are different to what has been supplied in the UK. In the US wave you don't need this figure to complete the droid, but in the UK you do. The Bail figure was originally shown with the arm, but this figure now has a leg piece.

So now I have to pay an extra 7 for my "free" pack-in figure. Thanks Hasbro.:mad::mad::mad:

Bought Greivous, Faie, Bail Organa, Stass Allie, Jodo Kast, and another Saelucami Trooper at WM yesterday. I have been on the fence about Greivous, until I saw the one hanging on the pegs.

Greivous is huge! He stands almost exactly 1 inch taller than the deluxe ROTS Greivous, the only other figure of the General I ever bought.

Points of note:

1. His arms snap together on either side, so that he can be displayed with either 2 arms or the 4 extended.

2. His collar is a separate piece. Not sure why.

3. He can stand pretty good.

4. He has "waist" (really lower torso) articulation.

All in all, I am satisfied with this, surely now the "ultimate" Greivous. My only complaint is that he did not come with a cape. :tired:

I am going to buy him off of Hasbrotoyshop.com. I am sick and tired of looking for him and never seeing him in a store.

Picked up the lot of wave 4 over the past two weeks (except the clone trooper). Grievous, FX-6 and Faie at Target in Wilkes-Barre PA and Bail, Breha and Stass Allie at Kohls. I must say I was initially wary of buying all of this wave but overall I'm very pleased.

You better get FX-6 and Breha while you can because they are hard to find now and probably will never see store pegs again after this wave. Both are excellent figures for what they are. The FX droid is probably the neatest figure in the wave.

I doubt Hasbro will find a way to improve on Bail excecpt maybe added knees (which are unnecessary). His robe is kinda bulky but you can make it look good with some futzing. Overall an excellent figure.

Grievous is a little rubbery, but he stands fine and his splitting arm feature works well enough. Obviously he's missing his cape, but I'm guessing it was a cost cutting move to leave it out. I'd bet money we'll see this mold re-released with a cape within the next few years. This one is actually one of the weaker figures in the wave.

Stass and Faie seemed to be the most common on the pegs when I was in the stores. Also in my opinion they're among the best of the year. These two will probably be available (along with Grievous) in future case packs, but I suggest you get them now because...

MB-RA-7 aka: The Death Star Droid is an excellent figure that could easily have sold well on his own card. Unfortunately, you have to buy almost all the figures in the wave to complete him. It is definitely worth it if you like droids. I remember Hasbro saying in a Q&A not too long ago that they would not resculpt the RA-7 droid, but I guess they changed their mind. Heres hopin we get an updated Sandcrawler RA-7 before too long.

Finally got the rest of wave 4 last week(Faie, Greivous, & FX6) from my brother. I opened up Faie and FX-6 last night.

FX-6 was a pain to figure out how the arms went on and i'm still not sure if i've got them right. But its an awesome looking figure once you get them on. Its kind of easy to tip over because of the placement of the "feet", but its not too bad.

Faie is an awesome looking clone. I like the new headsculpt and the soft goods poncho is nice too. I haven't decided if I like the plastic hood yet though.

I'll open Greivous tonight.

Saw this wave for the first time ever today...scored Grievous, hooded clone dude, and FX 6

man, I want all the droid parts for this wave, but do not want to buy the Organas...they do look good though....Looks like a mini Jimmy Smitts in the package!

I picked up the Grievous figure last night. This is the first realistic figure I've bought in months and I'm starting to remember why I disliked the realistic figure line so much. The quality of this figure is terrible, his overly rubbery legs make it impossible for him to stand on his own. A total waste of money on my part.

Overall, I give this figure an F and it's the worst SW action figure I've bought so far this year.

Are you talking about the Legacy Greivous?... you may want to try adjusting the ankle joints to help balance the figure. Otherwise, I'd have to disagree with you. A lot of sculpting and detail went into this figure from what I can tell. The scale seems more correct than any other 3 3/4" incarnation of the character. He can stand, sit, and hold his weapons reasonably well.

The figure CAN be improved upon, I know, but I think we got a good value for our money here.

I don't have it so I can't comment, but if it was the Clone Wars or Saga Legends version, then I can understand his complaints.

Yes, the newest sculpt Legacy version. The sculpting detail is great, but it's pointless if they can't make the legs strong enough to support his weight. This is one of the reasons that I've all but given up on the standard action figure line. I'm tired of figures that look great in the package, but have fatal flaws in their design and are complete let downs once you open them up.

I've been focusing almost solely on the Animated CW line for the last few months and decided to go ahead and give the realistic figures another chance by buying Grievous. Big mistake and a waste of $7.

BigB is right, sort of. I only buy the realistic line but I have noticed problems and Grievous is a great example. I bought two of these figures and I set them up in a pose with a couple clones and Jedi and when I woke up in the morning they had both fallen over. I set them up again and by the time I'd gotten home from work they'd both fallen over again. I mean, he stands for a while but after watching, I did notice that after a few hours the rubbery legs start to buckle and bend and he ends up toppling. The lack of peg holes in the feet makes it difficult to display him in dioramas etc. I even rubberbanded him to a large plastic action stand and when he started to tip he's so big and heavy that he took the whole stand with him.

Opened up Greivous and the details are superb but, as pointed out, the figure just seems awful rubbery. He seemed to stand up alright but couldn't hold his lightsabers. B-

The Legacy Grievous I have stands with no issues at all; ironically, the Animated version I have - which is a much smaller figure in comparison, will NOT stand on its own at all...

For my money, Legacy Grievous is the first decent fig I have picked up in a while...

I have passed on the Animated line....as time goes on, my dislike of the prequels has grown...

Grievous was one of the highlights for me in this wave along with Commander Faie. i agree about some of the comments on this board about the inability to stand on it's own, but to date it is one of the best grievous' Hasbro has made

Picked up this wave myself this week...a lot of variety here. My favorite in the bunch is Cmdr. Faie...really cool looking and great integration of the cloth.

Bail and Breha are two figures I would have never expected to see the light of day, but if this Legacy collection has shown me anything, it's expect the unexpected. Breha is similar to many of the Amidala figures we've seen, hard plastic gown, nice detail, and complete legs under it. Mu only quibble is that the legs are too long and prevent the figure from easily standing up straight. The cloth scarf is a nice touch.
Bail looks pretty good and with a little futzing and playing with the robe displays pretty well...

FX-6 is a welcome addition to anyone's "Vader's Rebirth" display. It was a little tough figuring out all the arms with no real good pictures on the card to help. Once attached though, they look pretty cool.

The new version of Grievous is a great step up with just a few issues to keep it from being perfect. As others have mentioned, his joints are a little rubbery and warped, but the added articulation does help in getting more dynamic poses out of him. It's also great that several separate pieces went into creating the main body of the figure giving it a more layered, detailed look. The scale is an immense improvement as well. The peg-n-hole system for holding the arms together doesn't work too well and he can't hold the weapons too firmly, but with a little creative posing, he can look pretty cool on display. I also wish that Hasbro had included a cape here, especially considering the fine job they have been doing with cloth integration at this scale...maybe with the next release, eh?

The wave is rounded off with another good Jedi figure in Stass Allie (much better than the one featured with that speeder a while back) and another trooper from the Evo set.

Here's a few shots I took of some of this wave...working on some shots of Faie and Allie...

This "Legacy" collection is probably the only Hasbro stuff I'll tryn' keep up on next year. '08 sure had some good releases in it...here's hoping '09 continues the fun...

He's another one where the fabric just works really well at this scale...
