Hopefully. Wave 1 will be solid "new" figures, though. 

Movie Heroes  or some equivalent has to be returning...there's some AOTC stuff in those BAD  waves, but they'll still milk it more. They'll want a basic phase 1 clone back on pegs, along with Jango Fett, Yoda, super battle droid, destroyer droid, Obi-Wan...

Also, reissued vehicles.

Lot more to reveal for 2013, even if it's not great stuff.

It'd be nice if those two packs each included a log.

I suppose you can make your own, though. (Not gonna make the joke I was gonna make...)

I was wondering if those packs were based on the obscure ROTJ sets with the speeder bike, imperials and ewoks....and they are...but with less stuff.

So will they go to their own store, buy up their own exclusives and resell their own exclusive at twice their own price?

I can totally skip Jocasta Nu.

So what about that Yoda themed packaging...Movie Heroes?

Was droid factory the supposed new 3 3/4" segment?

Maul pack december release...yeesh...

Where's that dumb new vehicle construction line or did they wise up and #%$% can it before release?

New 12" figures....they love to waste tooling...what, someone saw Gentle Giant's 12" retro stuff had a following, so let's make prequel stuff like that for mass release.

With vintage going away, hopes for reissues of hard to find vintage releases go with them. No echo bases troopers for me!

I know people disliked the previous 212th Clone Trooper...but its toooo soon to even update him with the new mold.

The line-up for the first two waves leaves me underwhelmed. With vintage, out goeth the obscure...oh, well.

Coolest unmade movie droid there is.

That's the B.A.D. news that some fans were expecting.  ;)

The awesome Movie Heroes Boba Fett with rocket firing jet pack! (at least it's a good mold) A another barely articulated Battle Droid that (explodes?) splits in two! (how many crappy new battle droid sculpts do the need?)

I'm definitely down for both sets, plus a bunch of multiples of those AT-ST drivers. Looks like Hasbro added holsters, which is great.

Yeah, sure,  Hasbro can add holsters to everyone...except vintage Rebel Fleet Trooper. (Cheap shot of the day.)

Ewok scouts not super articulated? I bet their price will be...wait...that made no sense...their prices will as much as a single carded Ewok. Well, I hope not. 2 pack is an odd deal...ROTJ 2-packs existed but not like that IIRC. In the glorious past, all 4 figures would be a  battle pack, maybe with Chewbacca tossed in.

I see another be expected.  Glad the Clone sgt who was in the film for  .0002 seconds will be getting an upgrade.
(Yeah, that's to be expected, too).

1. Wiorkettle
2. Treva Horme
3. Torryn Far
4. Captain "Our First Catch of the Day" Lennox with removable foot to place in his mouth

5. Luke Skywalker Dagobah fatigues, open/unbuttoned shirt/tunic/jacket...a  costume variant unmade.
6. Snow Trooper Officer
7. Tauntaun wearing Wranglers Tauntaun Wrangler
8. Han Solo Carbonite w/ Block, w/ milk chocolate bar LED's in Block
9. Star Destroyer Crewman
10. Leia Organa - Bespin Escape (jumpsuit)

No Wedge, because we aren't allowed to own him. Why encourage them to make another difficult to obtain figure?

No  "white" IG-88 because they could've made this years ago easily. Besides that;s another lighting argument...was it really a diffferent color than the IG-88 on the Executor?

No deleted scene bacta mask Luke.

I don't agree with that. The one Rebel Transport Speeder I got the other day has sticker residue where the TRU exclusive sticker would be. It's not a lot of residue, but it's there.

Found those two today, one TJ Maxx had 2 cases worth, which meant 2 Rebel Transports and 6 Geonosian speeders.  Got one of the Rebels. Actually saw the carded Red Skull from Captain America for the first time.

I will buy it when I see it and hold onto it and not open it up for three months to see what happens with the mold a little later down the line.

With any luck he'll be recolored neon green and packaged with a spring-action accessory as big as himself in 2013.

Wait, this isn't the GI JOE forum...

Ugh, irritates me so much to think I'll have to shell out like $30 for a Target 3-pack if I want snags... :(

We can add the broken promise of multi-packs either being all new or all repacks to Hasbro's scorecard. Oh, that's right they've broken that one already with Blu-Ray 4-pack's battle droid.

Ah, when cantina aliens used to be underappreciated peg warmers.
