I have the old "exploding" R5. And a extra gonk droid wont hurt. But the must-have is the death star droid. And why do they keep making Jar Jar? He's the worst character ever, IMO. It's a good sculpt, but I can't imagine he flies off the shelf. I think I would get any other fig before I get another JJ.

as happy as I was to get the BAD Death Star Droids, I'm not all that thrilled with the sculpt
the shoulders and elbows are in need of improvement

I'm hoping the R5-D4 has the back panels colored in, which would make it the first movie accurate R5-D4 since the very first

the new sculpt for the power droid looks nice, hopefully that color wont make it to the final product
I'd much rather have the blue version seen in the Lars' homestead courtyard

NOW if we'd only had that guy on the search for the Droids we're looking for!  :) ;)

Ok it's all over now! Only 1 new figure in each of the 2 new sets... Are they cutting back SW or what??

LOL! I was curious about that too.

Snaggletooth looks like a fantastic upgrade to Takeel from the POTF2 Cinema Scene! Hopefully Hasbro's also finally updated the Tusken Raider's crappy elbow articulation, but I'd be stunned if they were putting THAT much effort into one of these sets.  :P

Um, Kenner came up with the names for these sets three decades ago. ;)
