Thread: Wave 6

    Wave 6

    A new image of Luke Skywalker (Dagobah Landing) has turned up today, and I presume he's in the wave after the ANH/ROTS wave (hence the thread's title). At any rate, it looks like it's based on the snowspeeder Luke but with an uncapped head and ungloved hands. I like that we're finally getting this version, and the card art is pretty spiffy as well.

    I'd be a lot more interested in this if we were finally getting a decent ESB Yoda to go with him - the 1980 vintage figure is still the best version we have, and the best modern version is POTF2.
    Big thanks to DarkJedi5, TheRealDubya, obi-dad, morpheus282, Tycho and Kidhuman for great deals/trades.

    I guess wave 6 is going to consist of:

    Luke Skywalker (Dagobah Landing)
    Clone Trooper
    AT-RT Driver
    General Lando
    Weequay Skiff Master
    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.

    Big B, your list is spot on with the figures I will be buying. Right on!
    One way to out think people is to make them think you think they'll think what you are not really trying to get them to think what you think.

    Cool

    When is this wave supposed to hit the shelves? I've been wanting the weequay skiff master for over 25 years!

    I'm guessing it's gonna be a while. Still haven't seen waves 4 or 5 yet and so 6 will probably be revealed at Toy Fair in February and on shelves some time after that.

    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.

    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.

    Amen Brotha!

    I think this Luke and the Skiff Master are two must-have figures.
