EP3: SNEAK PEEK WAVE
[/color]

You might had heard the names, now meet the faces behind the EP III preview wave, scheduled to come out early next year. A fourth figure, not pictured, is rumored to wrap up this set, which as you will see has been given tremendous attention to detail and has been beautiffuly accessorize.

While the pictures were arranged by me, credit for the images go to out powerjedi999, which has them up for bids on Ebay. Without further ado, catch a glimpse of what's to come ...

I totally agree. These are indeed great sculpts. One can tell attention to detail and paint application haven't been taken for granted.

Perfectly rendered weapons, fantastic face detail and lots of articulation. If you take a close look at Tarfful, you can tell he has about 14 moving points or ... more.

Can hardly wait to get these "babies" :)

My only question is, is this really Tarfful or could it possibly be another Wookie Warrior.  The reason I ask is because isn't Tarfful a lot darker with long dreds hanging down?  Just wondering, not that this figure isn't awesome anyway!

The carded samples are making me drool all over my keyboard.
Have you seen the place who is selling them is asking $200.00 each!?!  :o  Only an idiot will buy them instead of waiting a few months to get them at retail for $5.99.

So you think Star Case is designing a case to hold this new package design?

I sure don't like the "Slashing Action" Obi-Wan Kenobi figure.  What the hell is up with his head?  Looks terrible IMO.  And another Mace Windu figure??   >:(

On another note, if you guys haven't seen it already Julian created a great visual guide gallery of these three preview figures (listed above).

I was very skepticsl about these EP3 cards but nowthat I see them packed with the figures they look awesome.  I sure wish we had some clear shots of the backs of these cards to see the other figures a little better.   Only thing that still bothers me is the Action features which is printed on the sides of the cards, other than that their great.  The articulation even looks decent.

I really like the new look of the card,  finally, something different.  I bet these will make carded collectors very happy.

Anyone know when these are destined to hit the shelves?   ???

I heard sometime in January for sneek preview and late March or early April for ROTS figs. As for the new card i've heard several debates on the subject of wether they will fit in the current Star Cases or need different ones. I really don't care, the only figs i put in Cases are Excusives or HTF that may be expensive if I had to replace later do to some type of damage. I only have about ten in protective case all the others just hang on the wall.

Although the new design is very original I'm starting to wonder how easy ..or difficult, it will be to store away these figures due to the oval pointy shape of the blisters.

I collect two of each figure and while I always open one card and display the sculpt, I neatly put away a sealed mint one in their original shipping boxes. As it is today, cards get placed in an interlocking position in the box where the top end of the blisters meet, creating one solid structure.

With that said, here is a question mainly directed to those of you putting away mint cardbacks:

How well protected you guys feel these cardbacks will be, again, due to the unique shape of the blister?

Do you guys think the figures will be more because of the special packaging? I think it might because the OTC came with a five dollar figure and put it in a star case and boom, it was now a ten dollar figure. I am not saying it will be that high, I think it will be about seven bucks.

well the Pablo Jill wave I picked up yesterday on the OTC cardbacks were priced higher at $5.99 each, compared to the other OTC at $4.99....they are sneakily upping the price on us!

is it me or does Obi's beard look jet black in color?

Didn't know if anyone seen some of the new EP3 packing of the Emperor, R2-D2 and the Cardback with Chewbacca.  Didn't know if it was cool to direct link these so here you go.

I am so hyped after seeing the other figures on the back of that Chewie cardback.  There's a picture of Grievous' Body Guard, the newer Clone Trooper (looks like it has lots of articulation), Darth Vader, Grievous... they all look really good to me.  Here's that picture, but I enlarged it by 300% so you can see the figures up and close.

maseterfett, where did you happen to find a picture of that booklet?  I really like the look of Anakin's new Jedi Starfighter, but I was under the assumption that it was going to be the standard class for the Jedi Starfighter and not specifically belonging to Anakin.  Oh well, I guess that means there are other fighters coming along with this new lineup of toys.

That Wookie Warrior looks incredible!  I love the new weapons these Wookies have, and I am hoping there's an army-builder 3-pack coming out with this lineup.

Damn, I can't wait to see the movie!   ;D

I had no idea where to put this, but last night went to Wal-Mart. And belive it or not they had ROTS figures. I even saw the Sneak Preview "Wookie Warrior".  :oThey just had a few different ones, but I can't believe they had them. I'm guessing they were in the back some where hidden this whole time and somebody found them. I was at a loss for words when I seen them.
