    Saga Legends Wave 2 pics

    http://www.sirstevesguide.com/index...._articleid=820

    VOTC Boba Fett is a very welcome addition, although judging by the Sandtrooper in this wave, they could have repainted Boba with ESB colors to get an extra sale or 2 out of it (it's not as dynamic-looking though, so I can also understand why they wouldn't).

    The aforementioned Sandtrooper is a real shocker, the TSC figure with a new paint scheme, it looks a lot like the Evolutions version. My complaint with the Evo version also plays here though, this deco is pretty extreme, like he fell in bantha poodoo, but I'll get one anyway.

    Leia Boushh is a neutral for me, I like this figure ok but I know it didn't sell well in the TSC line. It looks like they gave her helmet 1 more paint app - the greenish tinge on top - and since I had wanted a second version, they'll probably get me on that.

    "Darth Vader" Anakin Skywalker is the real POS of this wave, a revisit of the ROTS Anakin #02 figure yet again. That figure sucked with it's giant diaper for the gimmick, oversized "skirt", and lousy sculpt.

    Ok the only two I'll consider are the Sandtrooper. Maybe two or three. ANd the other one...501st trooper...HOWEVER

    Notice they are showing the AT-TE gunner mold for this one! I think most of us were under the distinct impression that Hasbro would use the #41 mold for this one now.

    If it's that horrid AT-TE gunner mold, then I'm passing. I can't stand that mold. The arms pop off at the elbows to easy and the one arm (right) is off kilter. Heck even a kit-bashed 501st made from the lower half of the AT-TE gunner and the upper half of the #41 would be fine. Removable helmet or no. Though I think I'd prefer the standard head (non-removable helmet).

    I'm actually kind of glad for this Legends line. I'll be passing up quite a lot, thereby saving some money this year.
    Move along, move along

    Steve added the other 4 figures right after I posted.

    Straight up reissue of ROTS Pilot Obi-Wan - too soon, way too soon.

    Straight up reissue of ROTS Droideka - what's the damn point of this if they're doing a modified, shield-carrying Droideka in the main line?!?

    ROTS Chewie - I can't tell if it has any changes or not, but it never impressed me much to begin with. It's not exactly unwelcome, but I would have greatly preferred the Chewie from the Early Bird Kit (VOTC body with ANH head).

    ROTS Saesee Tiin with new robe - meh, not my first choice of ROTS Jedi, but whatever.

    501st Clone - oh man, this thing is going to make collectors so mad, it's the ROTS #06 quick-draw body again (no waist articulation) #38 AT-TE Gunner with an incredibly sloppy deco. I guess this is a sloppy reissue of the ROTS Jedi Temple Assault battle pack version, but what's the point of doing it wrong again?!?

    Dang, you're right, that does appear to be the AT-TE Gunner mold! You can even see his stupid chin a little in both pics. What a waste, that thing's got so many problems.

    These sure will look pretty on store pegs. Good thing, too, 'cause they're gonna sit there a looooooooooooooong time.

    I definitely pick up that Boba Fett, maybe a couple of them.

    I'm kind of wishing they had just gone with a "clean" orange pauldroned Sandtrooper. I dont' like this super-dirty version, it looks like he spent the day cleaning up Dewback droppings.

    I'm going to keep my eye out for a Leia with a decent paint application on her face, considering how none of the TSC versions of her seemed to have one.

    Everything else can rot on the pegs as far as I'm concerned. They rerelease that EP3 piece of crap Chewie, but don't rerelease the VOTC Chewie?

    Boba...and that's it.

    They have to clear the s#$t thats still left from last year on the pegs here.

    I cant believe they are releasing that Obi-Wan again

    I might buy the Fett, but will also buy some sandtroopers and maybe a 501st or 2. That damn AT-TE gunner mold is horrid

    I think - it's all poop.

    if the sandtrooper had been issued with a clean appearance and maybe just the odd fleck of dirt in the corners of the armour I might have bought it. terd wrestling trooper just doesn't cut it for me.

    the rest all suck. well no, the boba fett is a good figure. already have my fett quota though and don't need any of the stuff there really. and I'm not sure i'd call any of those figures a legend. bit of a misnomer there.
