    The cannon is Yoda's patented Super Gun of Mega Awesome, which launches flaming banthas at his foes. P-chew! P-chew!
    Tommy, close your eyes.

    Well, that's kind of offensive, what does the Banthas' sexual orientation have to do with anything.....? ...oh wait, you said "FLAMING Banthas" not "Flamer Banthas"... my bad.

    It's from the original 2005 release, and it's based on Kashyyyk weaponry since he spends much of the film there. Either it was sculpted before the film was finalized, or more likely, it was just done to give him more playability and perceived value (which, while evidently not important to some here, probably makes it easier for parents to spend $7 when it's not just a tiny little Yoda in the package).

    I agree that we need a new Dagobah Yoda, but I'm not about to throw a fit that he's not coming RIGHT THIS SECOND, either.

    Because it was pointed out to hasbro that the figure and all accessories he comes with are for the Revenge of the Sith, hasbro has delayed the new VTC Yoda to give him a ROTS cardback.

    Hents, we aren't getting an ESB Yoda.

    Actually, I was referring to the Dagobah Landing Luke. My bad. I should have made that clearer in my post.

    Fi Ek Sirch (Nikto Jedi)

    I'm definitely getting the Weequay Skiff Master, Fi Ek Sirch, General Lando and Luke. Pass on the clones.

    Hasbro did a great job with the choice of cardphoto for that Luke.
    This list has proved spot on... there's a photo of the card back over at RS that shows all these figures. There's also a close-up of Luke - another amazing headsculpt of the character after so many years of failed attempts.
    Big thanks to DarkJedi5, TheRealDubya, obi-dad, morpheus282, Tycho and Kidhuman for great deals/trades.

    Yeah, wow, that Luke head is stunning - I was somewhat worried by the first picture, but damn, that's good. And they gave him the hole for his lightsaber! Nice.

    I also like that the photo on the back isn't just a shot of the front of the card, as they had been doing for earlier first-time figures.

    As for the rest of the wave, I like what I see. Looks like the AOTC clone has the super-articulated body - right after I accumulated dozens of the previous version. Lando's cape looks too blue here, so hopefully the actual figure will work out. The others look good though not the most exciting choices ever.

    I like this as well. Unless it was a shot of a vintage figure, pics of previous releases really didn't do anything for me. This is so much better.

    Where'd you see the cardback?
    Tommy, close your eyes.
