Avid reader of JTA Archives and War Room, first time poster. So Hello all
Well for me, sourcing figures in the UK has been a little hard (even when you work at Toys'R'Us), but id have to say from what i've picked up on my travels, Wave 3, Return of the Jedi had some great offerings. Even if i missed out on a Gamorrean
-Admiral Ackbar (overall sculpt was amazing)
-Woof (Yet another superb sculpt, head especially. Jabba's denizens are always a winner)
-Wicket (His eyes, the shine make them come to life, and the additional Ewoks
hood was a great nod to the animated series)
Then Dengar from wave 1, mysterious, menacing look, just what he needs. Big fan of the Empire Bounty hunter line-up. Yet for some reason he's still warming the pegs at work after 2 years?!
The ROTJ deleted scenes wave was great, not just because i found them all on a BOGOF offer, but because 3 of the figures are 2 figures in one. If your not a fan of the sandstorm look, then Lando and Leia are Skiff guard and SLave outfit underneath, great! And Luke doubles as his simple Jedi Knight outfit (almost). (obviously i bought 3 of each for this reason). And i can never have too many Rebel pilots and personnel. So #7 Dack Ralter, #28 Wedge, #91 Calamari Pilot, #52 Fleet trooper and #68 echo base battle gear soldier, were all great, even if they eluded me at retail for a while!
And even if the figures are repacks or not perfect, just having them on the vintage card back makes them special.
