We always do those year-end round ups in January - and while that's more than 2 months away right now - we know the figures that will be shipping.
General Veers still stands out as me getting exactly what I wanted from a figure (remember our lists we voted on?)
But a few others give me pause:
Leia Boussh was a nice resculpt. I didn't need her and didn't buy her, but I did admire her.
SunFac was interesting - even if we're sick of seeing him at Toys R Us.
The Clone Commando was inarticulate, but nicely sculpted.
The Firespeeder Pilot was random and obscure, but seriously cool.
Cody was long awaited for - yet feels like ANOTHER Clone. (Well, technically he is one)
Momaw was a nice resculpt!
Hem Dazon was once my most-wanted figure since Vintage days. But he's alright - I'm just glad to have gotten him done.
R5D4 was another nice resculpt - but one I really didn't need to use.
Chief Chirpa turned out awesome, but I have trouble seeing him even when he's in the palm of my hand. Can I borrow your microscope?
C-3PO proved what they said was impossible to do, was just another excuse manufactured in Rhode Island. I didn't need to buy it, but it did turn out nice.
Luke Endor is exactly what I wanted for a long time and I really like the figure. Funny that the vintage figure from 1985 has a better poncho though. And the gunbelt and holster is clearly a KENNER interpretation of the character, as Luke stopped carrying a gun by ROTJ.
The Podracer 2-pack adds value, plus Dud Bolt was one of my favorites amongst these guys.
Gragga is a great figure along the lines of Dexter Jettster, though not quite Ephant Mon.
The Endor Rebels are cool. I didn't really look them over too carefully - but they might be a reuse of the Saga 1 body. I'm not sure.
In the final 22, which we'll see between X-mas and 1st Quarter next year, I don't find anything too exciting. I'm buying some Clone Sergeants (ATOC) and 5 Kashyyyk troopers - that's it (2 types out of 22 possibilities - miserable waves....)
So what are your thoughts about all this?
