Battle of Tatooine Wave
« on: July 17, 2005, 10:51 PM »
OK, first, what Battle happened on Tatooine? 

I remember a droid search and stuff, maybe the Docking Bay Escape?  Eh, anyway...

"Battle of Tatooine from Episode IV will include 7 figures"

I'll guess that the Sandtrooper that was shown is in this wave...  :P

Anyone want to start guessing?

(runners-up: Saga Camp Ambush Tusken Raider; POTJ BoShek; POTF2 Flashback C-3PO; BenKenobi sans brown cloak (POTJ/OTC) because he's a really good figure)

An undercover rebel operative has posted a large reward for any information linking Imperials with an attack on a Jawa Sandcrawler . Hem Dazon and Bom Vimdin respond and begin to salvage the wreckage. They come upon a pair of damaged droids, designations R5-D4 and CZ-3. Both droids confirm that it was indeed stormtroopers that attacked and destroyed the crawler. After a quick repair job, Dazon and Vimdin prepare to bring the droids to the rebel spy when Sandtroopers attack! The group barley escapes, and spreads the word that imperials are attacking bounty hunters. Outrage ensues and they rise to arms to get the Stormtrooper occupation out of Mos Eisly. And thus, the epic battle of Tatooine begins....

New Sculpts

Hem Dazon
Bom Vimdin
R5-D4
DZ-3

Repacks/Kitbashes
Bannis Keeg (Based on POTJ Duros)
Saurin (Based on Bossk)
Sandtrooper (POTJ)

A guy can dream right? :P

I think Tagge and Yularen would be better suited for the Death Star wave, but I'd love to see them either way.

I will forgive Hasbro for everything if they just make CZ-3!

My predictions would be these in some fashion.

Luke, Han Solo, Sandtrooper, Chewbacca, Tusken Raider, Obi-Wan, and C-3PO.

I think Obi-wan is probably going to be in there somewhere along with a Tusken Raider and a Jawa.

Of course, Luke, Han, and Chewie will be included.

That's six, and number seven is obviously the Sandtrooper.

There is my guess.  :-\

Everyone mentioned Han, but you forgot to mention which one.  Its gotta be the commtech version.  Although the POTJ DS escape version (minus the Stormtrooper belt) pose fits in perfectly with the docking bay escape.  I would also guess the Luke fig would be with poncho.

I'm holding out hope that Han and Luke are not in this wave... it would be a letdown if they are.  The only way I would want Luke is if he came with a poncho.

I think CZ3 is a great possibility, it's been rumored for quite a while. Everything else is a craps shoot. Glad we're getting the sandtrooper with an alternate shoulder color though.

A new Dr Evezan (or however you spell his name) would also be nice.

OK, first, what Battle happened on Tatooine?

I asked the Hasbro guys during the Q & A if these waves had to technically be from a "battle", or if some of them could just be "themed" waves, and they said they're not all necessarily "battle" related, and that some of them could indeed just be themed in some respect.  I then mentioned that all I want from them are some new Cantina and Jabba's Palace aliens, and that hopefully there'd be room to squeeze some of them into some of these upcoming assortments.  They just said something to the effect of a vague "it's possible" (though with a rather hopeless tone to it).

That said, this particular wave could be a complete and total bust (Luke, Han, Chewie, Ben, Sandtrooper, Tusken, Jawa).  OR, it could be the most beautiful thing in the history of the modern line, with all of the following:

Arcona/Hem Dazon
Tonnika Sister (with variant)
Bom Vimdin
Braniac
Givins
Wioslea
CZ-3

If Hasbro did that, I'd wet myself a hundred times over.  Then, they'd just have to pump out a couple more Jabba's Palace aliens (Hermi Odle, Yarna), and I could die a happy man.  But something tells me that this wave is more likely going to be along the lines of the crappier lineup I listed up there first...

If they did pump out some repaints, I wouldn't be overly opposed to Bannis Keeg (other Duros) and Saurin (off a Bossk).  From the Sandcrawler lineup, an all-new R5-D4 and the orange Treadwell Droid would kick a ton of ass too.

EDIT:  Brainfarted on the fact that they've already shown the Sandtrooper at SDCC, so yeah, there's one of 'em from this wave already (assuming that wasn't just a quick mockup), so I'd say it's not looking too good here for some of the more unique Cantina aliens afterall.  Crap.  :-\

That would be great Matt but of course they won't do that.  They may stick a Tonnika Sister in there.  Hopefully a CZ-3 to.  I would be surprised if we get more than one cantina character this time.

I wouldn't be disappointed with army builder repacks, really. I can always use more Stormies, Tuskens, etc. :)
