Legacy Wave 9
« on: October 14, 2009, 05:18:36 PM »

Quick reviews for Legacy Wave 9 missing Leia (found in an LA area Kmart last week for $8.49 each + tax):

BD16: Luke Skywalker - Nothing really new about this one IMHO, except the chest piece. Rating: 3/5
BD18: Ewoks (Paploo & NaAhpakk) - Ewoks are always good, right? Rating: 3.5/5
BD19: Nein Nunb - Great figure. Seems to have reused some previous pilot parts. Rating: 4.5/5
BD20: Major Panno - Like this figure a lot. Rating: 4.5/5
BD21: Giran - Like this figure a lot too. Rating: 4.5/5
BD22: Malakili - Likeness looks good. Articulation is OK. First new one in years, right? Rating: 4/5
BD23: Nikto Skiff Guard - Surprisingly, like this figure a lot too. Rating: 4.5/5
BAD: R3-O1 - Figure not complete.
BAD: R5-C7 - It's an R5... nothing to write-home about. Rating: 3/5

That is quite the score man. I am really digging this wave. Really looking forward to Major Panno.

Coolness! Leia and the skiff guards are quite high on my list. I've been wanting new skiff guards for quite a while!

Just wanted to toss in my comments about my first new figures in months. A few points to start:

I was VERY pleased - VERY VERY pleased - to grab most of the ROTJ wave at TRU for the 5.96 price point. That may factor in. :)

These figures are AWESOME. Very high end paint detail, not a loose joint in the bunch. Leia's extra legs are brilliant - they work well and look good.

The aliens all rock. Nien Nunb is a huge, huge upgrade - trust me on this - what a figure :) The Rancor Keeper is not quite as much of an upgrade, but it's close. If you're on the fence, buy it. Prune Face I'd call the same.

Luke is Luke. Not a bad face, by far the best DSII Luke we've seen (I'll even forgive the awful paint error on the lightsaber - mine's hilt is partly unpainted making it look totally wrong).

what's the deal with Luke's ENORMOUS left hand?  that ruins the figure for me.

It is what happens when a Jedi uses the Force too much with one hand. It does look a little weird, but it really doesn't bug me all that much for whatever reason.

Good one mit!

Thanks HomieBear.

The funny thing is, that Lukes hand never bugged me. Until it was pointed out here by Skyrocker. Now it's all I see on him. I still don't think it is all that bad of a figure. But his crazy hand has really started to bug me. Weird.
