    Points of Interest:
  • Captain Needa is a partially-new figure that uses the legs from 2007's TAC Death Star Trooper, along with a new upper body.
  • The rank badge and cylinders are glued in, but they can be removed. This allows for a potential army of different ranks of Imperial Officers to be made in the future.
  • This figure contains an extra "Droid Factory" piece to Build-A-Droid. This figure includes U-3PO's left leg.
  • There is a variant edition of the Build-A-Droid figure in this wave: it comes painted in either a silver or a champagne finish.
