This could be a nice wave, definitely looking forward to Cody, and the Jedi and Fire Pilot could be nice too.  The repacks could be ok, if they could somehow use the following:  Obi-Wan (Pilot), Clonetrooper (#41), Anakin Skywalker (Evolutions), and Ki Adi Mundi (ROTS).

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'!)


Most needed figure ever.

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


And 1" taller than the previous Grievous figures.  Now with accurately scaled height!



4. 501st Clone




Packed 10 per case.





5. Captain Cody



Biggest ROTS oversight so far.

Is that Talz jedi from the Clone Wars cartoon? Is that the "Muftak" jedi? If that's the case, I'm really happy that we'll be getting some movie-style figures based on characters from the cartoon.

And Dressel, I totally agree about Greivous' height. Its almost embarassing to see him standing on the shelf, eye-to-eye with battledroids.

With all these EU Jedi and others backgrounders finally coming to fruition, maybe there is a Quinlon Vos in our future?

News from the rumor mill:

*new* - Coruscant Fire Fighter Pilot
*new* - Lushros Dofine (Invisible Hand Captain)
*new* - Commander Cody
*new* - Foul Moudama: Talz Jedi
(repack) - Anakin Skywalker
(repack) - Clone Trooper
(repack) - Ki-Adi Mundi
(repack) - Obi-wan Kenobi

Sweet list Jeff!

And yes Ed, Foul Moudama is the one from the cartoon! Excellent way to sneak a few EU characters into the movie-style line. Pretty damn cool!

I'm really excited for Lushros Dofine and Foul; somewhat less eager for Cody and the Firefighter (but will still buy both); and the rest I'll pick up depending on what versions are used and whether I already have them by that point.

*new* - Coruscant Fire Fighter Pilot:

How sweet is this going to be? I can't wait to pick up a couple, It'd be cool if we could get the fireship vehicle, but that will never happen.

*new* - Lushros Dofine (Invisible Hand Captain):

Not neccessarily one of my top choices but I think I'll be happy with it. I'll pick up a few.

*new* - Commander Cody:

What else needs to be said? I really hope he is SA with a removable helmet, and a Holo Sidious.

*new* - Foul Moudama: Talz Jedi:

Wow. Toatally unexpected, but awesome. I really want one of these. This might be my favorite figure in the wave.

(repack) - Anakin Skywalker:

Anything short of the EVO Anakin should be thrown out. If it is the Evo I'll pick up another 2 or 3 for dioramas and such.

(repack) - Clone Trooper:

I really hope this is an SA 501st, since they screwed us with the last one. Or even a SA Grey clone, and I'd be happy.

(repack) - Ki-Adi Mundi:

This was one of my favorite ROTS figs and makes great Custom fodder, count me in for a few more.

(repack) - Obi-wan Kenobi:

Again, Anything short of a Pilot Obi-Wan should be chucked in the trash.

Glad we're getting to hear relable data on these waves. Not bad for a prequel set. ;)

While most of these look very cool, i'll have to pass on ALL of these. Im a little ROTSed out, and I'd rather spend my money on OT stuff.  :P

My thoughts:

Fire Fighter:  Sweetness.  Great choice.

Cody: Duh.  I think he may have the most anticipation behind a figure since Tarkin or Slave Leia back in the day.

Dofine: Umm... okay.  Can't say I'm too excited.

Talz Jedi: Now this, I'm excited.  A great out of nowhere surprise of a figure.  I can't wait to see what this looks like.

Anakin: The Evolutions fig seems the only logical choice (with pilot headset) but... doesn't matter much to me.

Ki Adi: The hell?  Holographic, maybe.

Obi Wan: Pilot or bust.

Clone Trooper: I'd prefer this be the Utapau version, but I suppose I could live with SA versions of the 501st.

Biggest Disappointment: No Senate Duel Emperor.

Firefighter - Might be cool.

Cody - An obvious choice. Make sure he's nicely articulated and I'll buy.

Dofine - Meh.

Talz Jedi - Sweet! I didn't think they would have actually gone through with this but I'd hoped they would. I'm half expecting it to be Muftak with a cloth jedi robe, but here's hoping Hasbro makes him from scratch.

Firefighter - It's ok I will probably pick it up but not too terribly excited for it. 

Cody - Glad it's coming out. 

Weequay Jedi - Sounds cool I will get him for sure. 

Dofine - Well is this the same pilot from TPM Trade Federation.  I mean does he have the goggles?  Most likely I will get him. 

Ki-Adi - I am almost sure he'll be a hologram...hopefully he will be. 

The others - I will have to see I guess.

Yep, I hope it's a Holo-Adi-Mundi, since the regular one is so recent. Plus it helps to complete that scene in the Jedi Temple with Mace, Yoda, and Holos of Ki-Adi, Aayla, and Cody.

Now we just need Holo Cody and the plotting table...

I bet dollars to doughnuts that Holo Cody will be an exclusive somewhere next year.

Fire Fighter: One I'll buy!

Cody: Put me down for 2!

Dofine: This a repack? I'll pass.

Talz Jedi: Give me 2!

Anakin: I'll pass.

Ki Adi: I'll pass

Obi Wan: Have 6 of the pilot so I'll pass unless I need one for a custom

Clone Trooper: Depends what it is. If it is a rehash I'll pass.

Dofine is not a repack. He has never been made before. This is the dude that said "All batteries fire! FIRE!" and "Magnetize! Magnetiiize!"
