Here's my two cents on each of the 6 figures from wave 2 of the 40th Anniversary Black Series Line:

Stormtrooper - nothing significant here, painted ever so slightly differently from the original. Good to have another chance at these guys.

Chewbacca - either intentionally or not, the paint on this one is a little bit different than the original. This one looks just a bit better, in my opinion.

C-3PO - straight repack of the EB exclusive, nothing new with this one

Jawa - great figure, looks awesome. The only issue I've found is that the cloth robe hinders the leg and knee movement.

Death Squad Commander - this figure looks fantastic. Hasbro nailed this one.

Sand People - another amazing figure. The alternate pieces for the Gaffi stick add some nice variety and the cloth robe works pretty well.

So, 3 easy passes for those who've been collecting for a while, and 3 brand new figures that are all pretty great.

Managed to pick up this set a while back at Walmart along with the Baze Vs. Stormtrooper set. Pretty good set overall.

The good:
Both Maul and the Seventh Sister look like they stepped right out of the show (provided you can find a Seventh Sister that isn't squinting or lopsided). Both Maul's hood and the Inqusitor's mask are great accessories that interact very well with the figures. The mask needs to be pushed all the way back on the Seventh Sister's face, but once that's done the result is quite impressive. Maul's tattoos are applied pretty well, which always seems to be an issue with shirtless Maul figures.  :maul:

The bad:
It's extremely hard to get the Seventh Sister to stay standing, and she has trouble holding her lightsaber because of her rubbery hands. The lightsaber blades seem a bit too short, especially in comparison to Maul's.

All in all, an impressive set and one of the best in the Rebels line to date. It's a shame that it took so long to get here, but it's good to finally have it. Overall, I'd give this set an 8/10.

Hey there!
I've been a longtime "lurker", and I decided I would bite the bullet and join. I'm guessing I might be one of the youngest folks on here, but I've got the same dedication to collecting and Star Wars that my fellow Snowtroopers have. I look forward to being a part of the community!
