It would be nice to see Luke get some of that love in 2010... I think we're on the way with the Snowspeeder version along with the ANH in the battle pack that's coming out.

I'd love to see them tweak the X-Wing pilot version of him some, the Stormtrooper version to be a proper height, an all new Hoth version, Dagobah, and finally a definitive ROTJ version (the new one is better than past attempts but still not quite there).

:wink:

I heard people has found this TPM wave at Rite-Aid,do they get new updated figures now?. I got there before the retail of TPM to see if they had any SW figures and they had two CW's and one 30 Anniversary vader. I never found the TPM wave in NC,only found the holo dude with the chair and Darth Maul Shirtless.

Target has been getting the TPM wave shipments quite regularly. You'd have better luck finding them there I suspect.

Been opening a few waves of figures from 09 that for some reason I never opened when I bought them, and this wave is one of them. Although I only saw this wave once, never saw Rum Sleg, and I'm still missing the Podracer guy too. Obi-Wan is awesome, and I'll echo CHEWIE's earlier comments about it being better than the AOTC version. The Gungan Warrior is another "best of 09" figure, and now they have no excuse to NOT make an SA Jar Jar since they have a Gungan sculpt. The rest of the wave, however, kinda sucks. Holo Sidious is just awkward. Amidala is basically a statue, which is tolerable, but her articulated portions suck. Topless Maul is okay but not great.

Still want to pick up the Rum Sleg and at least get the Podracer guy's part to finish L8-L9. And I want one or two more Gungan Warriors, but Hasbro's distribution sucks so I'm probably gonna have to hit up the internet.

I wasn't a fan of the maul and to add insult to injury mine was missing the the right hand

Found one TPM figure and that was the Obi-Wan which I am *very* happy to find him. The shelf was nearly empty with the TPM obi-wan and a few other figures was just sitting there. Btw,Got it at K-Mart in Thomasvile,NC for 8.49$...It was 8.99...what a bargain, :roll: .

So I just got Obi-wan from this wave. He came with my EU case.

Overal he is a great figure. Great head sculpt. and when he's standing beside his AOTC and ROTS counterparts, its awesome.

I just need to get a good Qui-Gonn, as I was shocked to discover I have none!!

My only complaint is he doesn't have ball jointed hips. His stupid swivel ones are a pain. I guess I got spoiled with the AOTC and ROTS ball jointed hips. I think I might grab another figure to fix his hip problem. (He's not an old man yet)

Finally found a second Gungan Warrior yesterday and picked it up, putting me at 2. Officially done with this wave even though I never picked up Clegg Holdfast. Need to track down that last L8-L9 part now.
