So, we heard that 8 or so waves were announced, ranging anywhere from 6-8 figures in each. So, I guess my first question would be:
Are these the only waves were going to see in '06, or will there be more?
Now, if there are going to be more, my next question is name the waves you would like to see made?
Personally I would love to see a Battle of the Second Death Star made. Not just for my DSII Luke, but for a good Soft Goods Palpatine w/ Throne, prehaps a retooling of the Evolutions Vader (So his right hand can be removed at the wrist), Moff Jerjerod, Admiral Peitt, Admiral Ackbar, and Nein Numb.
Right there I have 7 figures who havent seen plastic either ever (Jerjerod), in a long time (Ackbar, Numb, Peitt) or who really needed the update (DSII Jedi Luke, ROTJ Emperor) Vader is everywhere nowadays, thanks a lot ROTS,
Finally, I know a lot of these are going to be resculpts, or new sculpts. Which ever you prefer to call them, but Ive been hearing that Hasbro is sort of "starting over" with Star Wars, and now releasing new figures (i.e.new sculpts of those figures you know and love) or rehasing the ones that are supreme (i.e. 2004's Saga Tie Pilot)
What do you guys think? As of now, knowing what I know, and seeing what Ive seen, Im excited and a bit nervous for the new waves to be released. I mean, look at the first wave we get. Brand new Leia Boussh, Han Carbon, and Bib Fortuna. Repaint of Barada, who wasnt all that bad of a figure, just a bad paint app., a retooling of Chewie w/ realistic chains, and a retooling of Boba Fett. Thats not a bad list at all. Even if its not all new figures or resculpts, its not a bad list. 3 new sculpts, and the rest retooled to be up to par with those figures is pretty good. I hope the rest can live up to that expectation.
What are your guys thoughts? Im intrested what the big hitters like Tycho have to say. BTW you rock dude. So yea, post and lets hear what you guys think! Thanks to all who do!!
