    2012 Wave 1 - The Phantom Menace

    The figures have been revealed for a while now, but Sandtroopers has carded images of all 12. I'm still not a fan of the logo, but the cards look nice otherwise.

    It almost looks like Qui-Gon has a flared blade. The non-light-up Movie Heroes and Discover the Force versions don't have flares, so it could just be the photo, but it's possible.

    I have no idea what the phallic accessory is that Darth Sidious has; it doesn't look like his lightsaber.

    The Naboo Royal Guard shouldn't have the Character Debut sticker, though the last one was the specific bearded soldier, so maybe they're counting the shaven one as a different character?

    It's interesting that they chose the TPM image of Quinlan Vos for the card art, basically confirming that the background extra was indeed him. I hadn't actually seen that close of an image of him before, or maybe I'm forgetting it.

    Looks like Maul comes with a complete unlit saber, and two lit halves. As with Qui-Gon, it looks like the blades are flared. I'm glad they're not just reissuing the Evolution Maul here.

    By and large, the figures look great. I'll be getting Qui-Gon, Obi-Wan, and Maul to keep carded. Maybe Ben Quadinaros too, if the mood hits me.

    Now I see why we get the cheapo version of the Battledroid in the Movie Heroes line. That's gonna be expensive to army build this one.

    I would wager that the new BD will be in the movie heroes line within 2 years. It's just a matter of being able to wait that long....

    And I don't think the Naboo Royal Guard is a "character debut." See the hard-to-find final wave of E1 figures.
    CU Later. Contracted Universe? Later. :(

    Sandtroopers now have the loose photos up... looks like Sideous' prop is in fact his saber hilt, Qui-gon does not have a flared saber while Maul does. There also seem to be some soft goods nightmares as Sideous' robe seems to be out of control while Maul's is so frayed it looks like he's wearing fringe. On a side note, the Padme and Jar Jar in the movie heroes line look like winners (both are SA as far as I can tell) and probably should be in this wave but just got bumped.

    Thankfully, Bantha Skull got confirmation that Jar Jar is still coming on a Vintage card later in 2012. Maybe the fanboy furor over it is what will cause the apocalypse. I'm so glad he wasn't just bumped into Movie Heroes after all; that's definitely one I want carded.

    And yeah, the Character Debut sticker isn't the greatest thing ever, but at least they're differentiating that at this point, since I know a lot of people have issues keeping track at this point.

    Thanks for the news about the Vintage Jar Jar. Hopefully he won't be impossible to find. As I want two.

    I hope they just don't repack the Movie Heroes one for the Vintage Line.

    Someone in the Yakface forums got the new TVC Darth Maul and posted several pictures of it. The horns are really fat, and the communicator is sculpted to his wrist instead of a separate piece, but other than that it looks pretty stellar. No flared blade, but I'll gladly take the ball-jointed hips over that, honestly.
