So Aurra Sing gets no ankle articulation, not even in TVC?? I have started to NOT let non articulated ankles disappointment as much, as for some figures do not need them, as well as some sculpts looking better/ cleaner with out them... I actually do not mind the lack of articulation when it comes to Aurra... but it still would have been cool...

oh well she looks so awesome and comes with a computer-type brief case which also holds the light sabers of her bounty victims... very, very nice touch Hasbro! A raw figure for the collectors woo!

OK, so the packing is exclusive to Walmart. But most of the figures not so much. If I read those photos correctly (and I like to think I have), the breakdown is like this...

1: Aurra Sing (also VC73
2: Darth Maul
3: Destroyer Droid
4: G8-R3
5: Gungan Warrior
6: Mawhonic (also VC71)
7: Obi-Wan Kenobi (also Movie Heroes)
8: Qui-Gon Jinn (also Movie Heroes)
9: Ric Oliť
10: Naboo Pilot (also VC72 in fall)
11: Tusken Raider
12: Yoda

I'm assuming Maul, Destroyer Droid, Gungan Warrior, Tusken Raider, & Yoda are repacks and that Olie, and G8 aren't. Is that correct? I've been unable to find a definitive list anywhere.

Here's how I understand it:

The Gungan Warrior is a new sculpt, with perhaps some recycled parts. Ric Oliť and the Naboo Pilot are also new sculpts, sharing the same body, but with different heads. Aurra Sing and Mawhonic are also new sculpts. The astromech is a repaint.

Yoda, the Tusken Raider, the Droideka, Darth Maul, Qui-Gon Jinn and Obi-Wan Kenobi are straight repacks.

Aurra Sing, the Naboo Pilot, Mawhonic and the Gungan Warrior will be released on TVC cards later this year. Ric Oliť and the astromech are exclusive to this wave.

From the current podcast at http://www.swactionnews.com/, I've learned that Ollie and G8 are exclusive to Walmart. The others are as noted above. Additionally, I believe I read at Jedi Temple Archives that Naboo Pilot is merely Ollie with a different head. There are times I would like a different head.

Edited to add:
Just found this on Rebelscum's main page. Not a bad summary - but it doesn't appear to mention the bit about Ric and G8 being the true exclusives...

Skimmed it.

By the way, whatever became of Silvanos?
