Photo Guide: Cad Bane and Aurra Sing

Now that the Christmas festivities have slowed down, we can return to the job of photographing some more Galactic Heroes!  This time we get a look at two bad bounty hunters, Cad Bane and Aurra Sing.  I’m really impressed with Cad Bane, he’s got some great presence, though he does suffer from some rough silver paint application.   Aurra Sing looks great, but she has zero articulation except at the neck, which is a little disappointing.

Carded Pics of Wave 1

We’ve seen them loose, but now you can get a look at Wave 1′s figures in their carded form.  Jedi News has 3 nice pics of the entire wave!  Hasbro has gone back to the original card colours of 2004 with the black and white logo with blue highlights and the green mini logo’d insert.  There is the small blue Hasbro logo this time, so they are slightly different.

Wave 1 Hits US Pegs!

I received my first report of the new 2-packs hitting the pegs in the US!  Michael reports that he found the new sets from “Wave 1″ at his Toys R Us in Columbia, Mo.  This seems to follow reports of select TRUs allowing figures from The Vintage Collection and Saga Legends onto their shelves ahead of the supposed release date of August 6.  As the saying goes, your mileage may vary, but it’s certainly worth keeping a closer eye on your local Toys R Us.

Toy Fair: 2-Packs

Toy Fair has revealed some fantastic looking new figures for later this year!  We’ve already seen images of Wave 1, but Wave 2 is a nice surprise, including Republic Commandos and some Clone Wars characters.  Wave 2 will appear on the pegs in August and includes the following:

  • Republic Commandos 2-pack
  • Clone Trooper & “Snow Bunny” Padme
  • Ahsoka Tano & Anakin Skywalker
  • Aurra Sing & Cad Bane

For a little closer look at these figures, check out Rebelscum’s gallery (starting at image 38).
