On one hand, it is nice to see Lukes and Hans still part of the regular line, but on the other hand... yawn.

And on the other hand it's kinda cool for people who have taken a long vacation of Star Wars. I'm kinda digging the Luke and Han.

I'm liking that R5-D4 a little more than is healthy.

I agree with you on the droid. I have a week spot for them, even though I've got like three dozen of them.

I haven't bought a classic Han in at least ten years, so I just might pick that one up.

The way I see it- between the two lines-- thats about 50 bucks saved-- and another 3 or 4 pegwarmers I get to look foward to digging through... :(

I'm not excited by it. I still want characters that have not been produced before, especially Cantina patrons, Jabba's Palace guests and skiff guards.

I'm guessing that R5 is gonna be smaller than the last one we got? Didn't they mention that astromechs would be more to scale moving forward?

I think Hasbro has said that this one is going to use the BAD parts (which I wish they'd do with every droid from here on out). Perhaps they've heard the grumbling about the corrected size on the new R2 and will keep the scale that they've been pretty consistant with all these years for any future Astromechs.

I really like the look of R7-A7 and the training gear Clone Trooper but another Obi-Wan Kenobi and Cad Bane in the Clone Wars line is a little too much.

Not that I want some of it--(meaning the new articulation)-- but I look at this as getting a TODO figure- with a Cad Bane Accessory-- think Mattels orko pack.

Yeah the TODO droid figure is cool, I just wish it could come with a new figure.

Knees, huh? Looks like I'm buying Cad Bane again.

The rest are a pass, unless between now and then I develop the urge to own at least one Luke in his Tatooine duda.

As a fan of Astromech Droids and Clone Troopers, I'm impressed with R7-A7, as well as the Clone in Training Armor. Very nicely done!
