For me it's the Saga Collection one, just like the way the accessories are displayed in the packaging.

I must admit that I'm not a huge fan of this new packaging for The Last Jedi, it reminds me of the Clone Wars (cartoon), repackaging from years ago.

After getting involved with both TFA and Rogue One figures I think my time is coming to an end with picking up that many modern figures in the future. I'll still get Luke and Rey from this wave but I'll either wait for the sales or only getting the odd other one or two depending on what gets released. I think the same will go for the future films released as well, just one or two to have some representation from them.

I can see that the whole SW figures collecting will just carry on for the foreseeable future and it's time for me to back off from it. At least I know some of you guys on here will always support it so it will be great to still get to see what's out there and it's got nothing to do with the quality of the figures or anything like that as I feel for the most part that they look great, but it's time to say enough for me and try to break what has sort of become a habit, it's not like I'm even displaying the ones I've bought over the last couple of years lol!

I'm not going anywhere though and who knows if I'll be pulled back in when the Vintage Collection finally see's the light of day again.

Hi I did not buy the full wave one like I did last year with Rogue One (As they will be discounted soon enough) but I could not resist picking up Rey & Luke.

Excuse my ignorance but how do you tell which is part of the orange wave and which is Teal?

Love seeing complete boxes like those - superb mate :D

We had a great Force Friday - 140 mile round trip to our nearest TRU. We were first through the doors and managed to get everything we wanted and more importantly had great fun.

Here's my daughter scrutinising figures to find the best paint app - so proud :D
