Overall, cant say I'm overly excited about the wave - the troops both look cool, but hardly feel like fresh new releases. The Crait Luke figure was the one I've been looking forward to, unfortunately the head doesn't look anything like the prototype they had in the slideshow. The highlights on the hair and beard look more like the toupee and dyed beard of Chuck Norris. They nailed his squint on the cardback though, so much so that you can barely see anything outside of pin sized pupils - mine looks possessed, lol. As a customizer, I frequently correct the deco on figures, but I might have to repaint most of the head on this one. Photo Real isn't there yet - at least in the 3.75 scale. Some repaints such as Vader and Leia look good, but Crait Luke does not hit the mark.
Wishing I had ordered these from Pulse... mine are still on backorder from EE, which I ordered back on April 13.
Would love to see some opened up pics when you get a chance!
