Current retail lists aren't showing Oola (who I believe Hasbro have actually said won't be coming), C-3PO or the A-Wing Pilot in wave 4.

Based on retail lists it looks like the following could be a Clone Wars themed wave 5;

Pre-Cyborg General Grievous (from Visionaries Graphic Novel)
Anakin Skywalker (with tattoos from CW Season 3)
Yoda with Kybuck (also from CW Season 3)
Roron Corobb (Hammerhead Jedi from CW Season 3)
Fans' Choice Figure 6 - Darth Revan
Concept Luke Skywalker

Also confirmed in the Q+A have been Qui-Gon Jinn (new SA sculpt, probably part of a TPM wave), Ewoks (possibley from a 2nd ROTJ wave) and a Bothan (could be from an EU wave).

We know that the break down of the figures is 60 figures over 9 waves with a Concept figure in the first 8. The remaining 52 are said to be roughly 26 Original Trilogy, 13 Prequel Trilogy and 13 "other sources" (deleted scenes, holiday special, CW cartoon, EU novels games and comics, etc). That means that, assuming wave 5 is what I listed above, there should be 2 more OT waves, 1 more PT wave and an EU wave.

Current rumors for the comic packs are;
Purge – Bultar Swan Vs. Battle Damaged Darth Vader
Enemy Lines – Anakin Skywalker and A’Sharad Hett
Dark Empire – Leia Organa Solo Vs. Luke Skywalker
Rogue Squadron 2-Pack

Also Hasbro have said that they didn't plan on doing Union Mara and Luke yet as they wanted more battle ready iconic looks for EU characters before specific costumes. So the Mara is probably coming with Luuke Skywalker, the clone from The Last Command.

Hope that helps!

Chris,

Thanks for the heads up.

I regulated the rumored characters to the end of the list since I want to try to keep it more of a checklist than a rumored/confirmed list.

Damn, I should have never gotten back into this whole star war game. I quit cold turkey in 1999 (it was Mace Windu coasting $40 that broke me!) and now near eight years later I’m a star wars figure crack addict once again because I couldn’t find any JLU for three months... *sighs
I’m a “main cast”with a sprinkling of the background characters I liked as a kid type guy. I’m also loving the Clone Wars animated inspired stuff like Padme (why a damned box set!?!?) And the Jedi hammerhead guy, he was my favorite alien as a kid, giving him a lightsaber just makes him cooler! I hope That Clone wars Padme will come out as a single card as she is the only one out of that boxed set I want! Same with Grand Moff Tarkin, although buying that set would be kinda cool, and hey if they don’t make a Thrawn making one with that set wouldn’t be hard!
I’ll also try and get that Mara Jade two pack, I loved the timothy zahn trilogy. Oh and Sith infiltrator?!?!? yeah, my darth maul from 1999 needs his pimped out ride! Looks like I’ll be picking up quite a few figures this year...

Yeah, but you also get the 2 cool new probe droids! You can always give the C3PO and R2 (who is rumored to have a retractable leg - finally!!!) to some kid neighbor.

My biggest disappointment is Hasbro's abandonment of the animated style. I can understand the reasoning, but those animated figures look great and seeing animated characters (like snow bunny padme) in "real" style just doesn't look right.

You're welcome Scott. The list looks great and I agree with you trying to keep it as official as possible, just thought I'd give you the lastest rumors in case you'd not seen the newer retail list from the other week.

I admit I did correct it a bit ("Mamwaw Nodan Y" into Roron, and "(KOTOR Darth M" into Darth Revan who we know is confirmed for wave 5), but I think it's pretty accurate given everything we know. Hopefully we'll know the full line up by Toy Fair at latest and we'll see pictures then.

I'm the same; main characters (new costume or large improvement over previous best version), core secondary characters and anything else I like that's cheap. I'm really glad of the move towards EU that seems to be coming.

FALLEN ELDOR wrote:

I believe Hasbro said in one of the Q+As that we could expect a new Thrawn in 2008.

My buy list isn't too bad next year so far;

Wave 1 – Revenge of the Sith
Galactic Marine (maybe, not sure on this one yet)
Mace Windu
Super Battle Droid

Wave 2 – A New Hope
Luke Skywalker (Yavin Ceremony)

Wave 3 – A New Hope
Biggs Darklighter (Tatooine)
Jawa and LIN Droid (been needing a newly sculpted Jawa!)
Stormtrooper

Wave 4 – Return of the Jedi
Jedi Luke Skywalker (if it's a new SA sculpt like rumored)

Wave 5 – Clone Wars
Darth Revan (Fans’ Choice Figure #6)

Comic 2-Packs
Twilight – Quinlan Vos Vs. Vilmarh Grahrk
Battle of Jabiim – Obi-Wan Kenobi and Alpha
The Last Command – Mara Jade Vs. Luuke Skywalker
Enemy Lines – Anakin Skywalker and A’Sharad Hett
Dark Empire – Leia Organa Solo Vs. Luke Skywalker
Rogue Squadron (Depends on who the characters are)

The Concept figures I'm not worried about (though I may be tempted by Vader and Luke). Same for the CW figures as I was never really a fan of the final season that these figures are based off as it contradicted the (IMO) superior Labyrinth of Evil way too much.

Still have my fingers crossed for Jacen and Jaina Solo to round out the 11 of the Top 25 and anchor an EU wave.

I have a feeling once we get into the EU stuff later this year, my buy list will narrow down significantly.

I'm an Original Trilogy Man.

Well Hasbro broke the main line down saying that (not counting the 8 concept figures) it was made up of 50% OT, 25% PT and 25% other sources so there should be plenty of stuff for you to buy next year. At least 2 of the remaining 4 waves are OT. Plus whatever repack waves they do at the end of the year (if they follow the pattern of the last 2 years).

I think Hasbro have got a good balance at the moment. Plenty of movie figures but also adding variety with the EU. My only fear is that the EU offerings will become more Clone Wars and less EU. Clone Wars has had plenty of figures already, will probably get it's own line in 2008 with the CGI show and most of the key events were done in the comics (which are covered by the 2-packs) so I feel the few spaces given to the EU in the main line should be given to the novels and games that don't have another outlet. I can accept the CW wave next year as that just about wraps up the main animated series characters with the exception of Barriss Offee (who was in the films) and Clone Armor Obi-Wan. I hope the possible 2nd EU wave and any in 08 plus draw from a wider variety of sources.

I would bet cold hard cash that '08 will be primarily devoted to the TV shows with a smattering of OT and EU - much like 05 was for ROTS.

I can’t say much in clone wars interested me other then the main characters like Durdge, (what’s her name) Darth Goth, and the new looks of Anakin, padme and Obi Won. The Hammerhead jedi is certainly an exception as is that green chick padawan leaning about Lightsaber crystals.
The only other ROTS Jedi I have are the other green skinned Jedi maser and the blue one Ayla something right? Still need Shak tee, mace Windu and Kai Adi Mundai. Yeah, I don’t go much at all for the expanded universe, I don’t have enough organizational skills to keep up...I loved the Zhan Trilogy and Dark Empire in the early 90's, but that’s about it.

I’m also loving the Clone Wars animated inspired stuff like Padme (why a damned box set!?!?)


Yeah, but you also get the 2 cool new probe droids! You can always give the C3PO and R2 (who is rumored to have a retractable leg - finally!!!) to some kid neighbor.

My biggest disappointment is Hasbro's abandonment of the animated style. I can understand the reasoning, but those animated figures look great and seeing animated characters (like snow bunny padme) in "real" style just doesn't look right.


I disliked the animated style at first and it took a while for me to accept it, but I like the realistic style of the figures because they blend well with the ROTS/ ATOTC cast. I'd still wish they would make a new animated line that wasn't so pre posed. I like the Boba Fett and Darth vader statues, not enough to buy them, but if they where six bucks four inch and looked good between Solomon Grundy and Green Arrow I’m sold!

I'm the same; main characters (new costume or large improvement over previous best version), core secondary characters and anything else I like that's cheap. I'm really glad of the move towards EU that seems to be coming.

although buying that set would be kinda cool, and hey if they don’t make a Thrawn making one with that set wouldn’t be hard!


I believe Hasbro said in one of the Q+As that we could expect a new Thrawn in 2008.


That’s good to know. I’m less likely to get that boxed set now just for Tarken alone. I’m sure they will put him on a single card eventually.
