While there wasn't really much originality or excitement from collectors for the re-issued first wave of Class I Fleet Vehicles, the second wave are new and pretty fantastic, starting with this Republic Assault Submarine. It's got great features, an all new Scuba Trooper, and transforming attack mode.
This Clone Trooper is orange, and is one of many fine Vintage figures you may have missed. The deco isn't as good as the 2006 version, but the articulation is way better. So you'll need both. Read on, and vote in the new poll!
The second wave of Movie Heroes has less re-issue more new sculpt with action feature. More focused on play than display, they're still very displayable unlike the old action feature laden figures of old. A new iteration of Queen Amidala in Theed Palace battle outfit is most welcomed since we haven't had a version since 1999 and it badly needed an updated. How does she measure up?
We second our dose of pasty white, angry, former padawans turned gun for hire with the all new Aurra Sing from the Discover The Force Walmart exclusive wave of figures. Twelve years is a long time to upgrade from the almost pre-posed Power of the Jedi figure, but it's a worthy and even definitive effort.
