    Wave 5 - A New Hope/Revenge of the Sith

    Hasbro has seemingly sent out pictures to the fan sites; SSG doesn't have them up yet, but I'm sure they will be shortly.

    At any rate, the lineup is this:
    *Utapau Clone Trooper
    *Death Star Luke Skywalker
    *Yavin Ceremony Han Solo
    *Commander Gree
    *R5-D4
    *Stormtrooper

    All of them use some degree of old parts, it seems. Utapau Clone looks like the current TVC clone in orange colors. Luke appears based on the awesome Resurgence of the Jedi version with a cloth skirt and stormtrooper belt (for the first time on a basic card). R5-D4 is based on the build-a-droid mold; hopefully they got the red panels correct on his back. The stormtrooper looks like the TVC/Dewback sandtrooper without the pauldron, but the head looks different. Han is the VOTC body and Legacy Death Star escape version (meaning the shirt is inaccurate, unfortunately). I think Gree is a repack from 2008.

    So there it is, kids, your first mixed wave since 2004. Nothing too stellar, though I'm excited for Luke.

    EDIT: I'd like to ask about ceremony Han whenever we get the Q&A thread up and going . . . hopefully I can remember. In similar news, we asked a question about Death Star escape Luke that is basically now wasted aside from a brief blurb about Leia.

    I cannot believe they are not going to reissue the VOTC ANH Solo (or at least the head sculpt) and instead we get the Walter Mattheaued-faced figure instead...blech....

    This line will all be peg warming....

    Some initial thoughts on this wave: snore. I mean, I'm excited about the Luke (though it totally burns one of our questions) but Gree is old news and I've got plenty of the Utapau clone. I'm on the fence regarding the other three; I'm glad they did a Yavin Han but they were lazy and didn't sculpt a new torso and so the figure is inaccurate and really is just a regular Han with a medal, R5–D4 is another character I've already got covered but if they painted him correctly and used the new BaD sculpt I might get another one, and the stormtrooper does look like the same one we just got as a sandtrooper so the back of this figure will determine whether I have any interest at all (I don't like my stormtroopers to have the holes in their backs for the sandtrooper backpacks).

    I'll likely pass on all of these. The only exception might be the Luke and maybe pick up a stormtrooper to replace some that have yellowed.
    More is more. Less is less, Twice as much is good too,
    Too much is never enough except when it's just about right.

    I too may go with the Luke and trooper...Did anyone review the ANH Jedi Luke (4 pack with Obi, 3PO and R2)? Is this a repack of that figure? Was it worth all the fuss? I passed on the few I saw, the paint job on Luke looked too "goofy."

    while this is a mixed wave of figures that is not the greatest of assortments I'm going to hold judgement till I see first hand... so far I'm all for Luke and Han.

    I'm wondering if this is perhaps a look at the greatest hits Vintage figures and Hasbro is holding off on showing us the goodies in this wave until Toy Fair hits.

    besides we are still left wondering about the ROTS Yoda and the ANH Wedge... perhaps Hasbro will give us some juicy photos for Toy Fair as to the rest of this wave.... I'm not ready toaccept that this is all there will be for the entire wave.
    Looking for CW 2010 Sidious and TX-20...if anyone can help it would be greatly appreciated. thanks

    The Resurgence Luke is probably the best version so far, but is far from perfect. It uses the VOTC legs, which are too short in proportion to the rest of the figure, the "skirt" prevents him from sitting properly, and worst of all (for me), the excellent headsculpt is ruined by being painted instead of cast in flesh coloured plastic.

    This looks like being pretty much the same figure, but has soft goods to allow him to sit, and a stormtrooper belt. I'm really hoping the head won't be painted this time, and hopefully can be swapped with the other figure.

    Apart from this figure I think I can pass on the whole wave.
    Big thanks to DarkJedi5, TheRealDubya, obi-dad, morpheus282, Tycho and Kidhuman for great deals/trades.
