Battle of Coruscant Wave
« on: July 18, 2005, 01:29 PM »
Battle of Coruscant from Episode III will include 6 figures, each with bonus mini hologram figure.

My suggestions:

The six

-new Bail Organa with the robe and fur stole from the Senate landing area
-Neimoidian pilot (new)
-Senator Giddean Danu (new) -- IMHO one of the coolest outfits in the whole saga
-Padmé with "TIE fighter hair" (new)
-new Captain Typho
-POTJ Security Battle Droid rereleased in red security, blue pilot, gold commander, and plain -- same sculpt but with maybe slightly thicker legs for better stability

Runners-up:

Clone Trooper (ROTS #41 with gray shoulder pads)
Coruscant Fireman (new)
Janu Godalhi -- Coruscant dignitary, Galaxies Opera House (new)
R2-D2 w/ "hovering" base and flaming Super Battle Droid (kitbash of some sort)
other "welcoming party" senators, such as Tundra Dowmeia or Malé-Dee.

Deluxe, vehicles, etc.

-Deluxe Clone Trooper Star Destroyer Gunner (with turret)
-Deluxe Battle Droid Gunner (with turret)

Six figures, hmmm.  My guesses/wish list:

3 NEW Figures:
Commander Cody - no brainer, if he is coming next year, it'll be here
Padme (pick any one of the RotS outfits they haven't done yet)
Anakin Skywalker (Starfighter Pilot) - Like the Red Leaded Obi-Wan w/nice rubbery cloak and headgear

3 Repack/Repaint Figures:
Clone Trooper (Gray Highlights)
General Grievous (either the SP or RotS versions)
RotS Battle Droid (Blue/Pilot)

I like this line up.
I remember my dream now.

I like it too... but I don't think we'll see a Padme in a "Battle Wave" unfortunately.

Here's what I think we might get, but what do I know?

-SA General Grievous (new)
-Pilot Anakin Skywalker (new)
-Coruscant Fireman (new)
-R2D2 (new w/ "hovering" base and flaming Super Battle Droid)
-Clone Trooper Gunner (some Clone repack - from Star Destroyer cannons w/ a cheap "cannon")
-Security Droid (ROTS repack w/ red paint)

I think that the R2D2 could be cool, and the firefighter might be a really neat figure.

 :P

This is the oddest theme next year, because of all the other glaring possibilites from ROTS.

New Stuff:
SA Commander Cody (unless he's coming in some other fashion, and if he is, then: a Padme, my kingdom for a new Padme)
SA Senate Duel Palpatine
SA Senate Duel Yoda

Repacks/Rehashes
Clone Trooper (Shocktrooper, 501st, Utapau, all of 'em)
Evolutions Anakin w/ pilot gear or as Darth Vader
Cin Drallig (new head on existing Jedi body)

Dream Come True:
Coruscant Fireman

Cody has been all but confirmed according to GH, so I think it's safe to say he'll be in this wave.

This is probably going to be a rehash (see what I did there?) of something I listed in another thread, but it may be different enough to show that I am flexible!  :P

BATTLE OF CORUSCANT WAVE (6 figures):

THE NEW:

1.  Commander Cody (SA, with switchable hands, removable helmet, and Sidious hologram)

2.  Anakin Skywalker (SA, Jedi Pilot gear; even though the one in the Evolutions set works for me, Hasbro has to get an Anakin in there, and I'd bet this one would have balljointed elbows)

3.  General Grievous (SA, actually IN SCALE, cloth cloak, no stupid action features, with IN SCALE bodyguard staff)

THE NOT SO NEW:

4.  Battle Droid (POTJ Security version with decent plastic)

5.  501st Clone Trooper (it says "Battle of Coruscant" and does not make a distinction as to what battle we're talking about here; recard from ROTS "final 12")

6.  Padme in "Leia" hairdo (or any other Padme for that matter)

And one vehicle: V-Wing Fighter with V-Wing Pilot  :)

To me this is the oddest wave next year, and I do think if it holds up (the Cody thing makes me wonder) it will encompass both the space battle and the Temple/Senate stuff.  At least I hope so.

I just really hope there's a super articulated Mace Windu in this wave. So here's my suggestions/hopes/dreams...

1. Super articulated Mace Windu (with all the fixins'!)

2. General Grievous (with sturdier plastic and softgoods cape)

3. Neimoidian Captain "All batteries fire! FIRE!!!" (that guy is classic)

4. 501st Clone

5. Captain Cody

6. Battle droid

Good one Ed.  I agree with everything except there needs to be a Padme in there.  Probably the first scene she's in with the Bun Hair.  So ditch the BD and inset Padme and you have a perfect combo.  They can release that 501st clone until the cows come home (or repaint him as an Utapau CLone.

I was trying to figure how Cody would fit in this wave but then while watching ROTS last night I realized he's on the ship with Obi-Wan above Coruscant before they leave for Utapau
