This is the one wave I'm least interested in, though I don't know why.  Everyone has great ideas, I just think other stuff interests me more at the moment.  But here's nothing:

New Stuff:
R5-D4 & new Jawa
Bom Vidim
Tonnika Sister

Repacks/Rehashes:
VOTC Han
Sandtrooper
VOTC or some other style R2-D2
CZ-3

You know I was thinking since this 'theme' is so vague, it may not be limited to the OT.  This could be where we get the young Uncle Owen and Beru figures we've been waiting for.  They're already in the drawer (I assume) from that rumored Screen Scene back in Saga (which spanned Padme), so they gotta go somewhere.

My call

R5-D4 (tweaking of Star Tours version)
RA-7 (pack-in from Sandcrawler)
Uncle Owen (Cinema Scene Rework)
Luke (Flashback Version)
Obi-Wan (OTC Spirit Repaint)
Han (Commtech version :P)
Tonnika Sister
Arcona

Would not put it pass Hasbro to also reuse any of the figs from the Cantina Cinema Scene (Takeel, Labria, Nabrun Leids) or the Muftak Exclusive.

I'd be nice if it was a VOTC Han with include the headset from the Falcon and a section of the falcon computer bank (from the Luke training scene)

And the VOTC Luke with soft goods Poncho and Moisture Evaporator

Hammerhead - *new*

Glad to see that Hammerhead is getting a new look.  I am really looking forward to this one.


R5-D4 - *new*

I'm happy with the Star Tours version... but looking forward to this too.


Hem Dazon - *new*

Pretty nice, but I would rather get a Tonnika whore.


Garindan - *new*

Very excited about this.


Han Solo - (repack)

Oh God... not the Cantina Han again... please no... maybe the VOTC one?


Luke Skywalker - (repack)

Would be great if it's the VOTC one with a floppy hat...


Sandtrooper - (repack)

Nice if it's the Evolutions one!

If they repack VOTC Solo, that would be great.  I have two, but I'd pick up another one.  I'm actually kind of glad if we'd see "new" figures of Hammerhead and Garindan, I've held off on the POTF2 versions of those two.  R5-D4 and Hem Dazon are of course welcome.  Not sure which Luke we'll see repacked (VOTC, commtech, Early Bird?), but VOTC Han (if that's the version they go with) would be great.  Sandtrooper could be Evo version, or even POTJ (which I didn't think was too bad).

Based on the SDCC photos, it is most likely the PotJ version...



Of course, there is always the chance they will wise up and put in a better version...

I am actually finding the whole commtech Han fiasco comical. 

If these rumors pan out then just getting Arcona is a winner.  I have wanted him since '78.  I could of lived with the POTF Garindan.  I still think its one of the few figs that holds up well in the old line.  Hammerhead, unless they change him drastically, I cant see much of a difference from the two that have been released thus far. I think the Flashback Luke with a Poncho and lightsaber would make a decent repack. The VOTC version sucked hard.  I actually would take the Early Bird version with new arms with better articulation over the VOTC.

It almost looks like the sandtrooper is the stormie from the Imperial Forces 4-pack with the Sandtrooper accessories. It appears as though there's knee articulation there, and the IF 4-pack stormie was basically made from the POTJ Sandtrooper with the legs from the commtech stormie.

Sure, its nowhere near as good as the evo sandtrooper, but it could certainly be worse.

I think this wave could have some promise. I'm really excited about a new Hammerhead. There's plenty of scenes that call for Ithorian customs, and I could never bring myself to use the POTF2 hammerhead for a custom. I'm psyched.

Hem Dazon, R5-D4...******* awesome. Hell, I'm even excited for Garindan. Gotta love the long snooted snitch.

Hammerhead - not sure if a new version is really necessary (the POTF2 one still holds up well IMO) but I'll buy.

R5-D4 - obviously. ;)

Hem Dazon - I don't have as strong a yearning for him as some of you, but I'm always hankering for new background critters so I'll buy.

Garindan - don't have POTF2, so I'll buy.

Han Solo - :P

Luke Skywalker - Probably pass, depending on what version is used.

Sandtrooper - Always up for more sandtroopers. Even if it's POTJ -- I like that version.

Hem Dazon:  Thank you, God.  My #1 choice for any figure at this point, so I'm thrilled to finally have this one taken care of.  Should be interesting to see what creative liberties Hasbro takes with his body, since there never really was one.

R5-D4 - If this is really an all-new, definitive R5 Astromech sculpt, then this is another huge sigh of relief and thank you God.  LONG overdue.  Hopefully they nail it for all of the astromech customizers out there who've been dying to make their R5 Droid armies.

Hammerhead - Meh.  Why?  We've got one that seems fine already, and there's still several other great Cantina characters left to choose from who have never made it into plastic.  I'm sure the figure will be cool, and I'll definitely dig it, but I think there were some much better choices that could've been made with this slot.  Now, those numerous other Cantina denizens we want are going to have to wait much longer (Bom, Givins, Tonnikas, etc.)

Garindan - See Hammerhead.  Though not in the Cantina, I think there were other better characters to choose from for Mos Eisley, namely CZ-3 or Wioslea for starters.  Nice figure, I'm sure, but there's others I'd have much rather had instead.

Sandtrooper - Can never have enough Santroopers.  I can't even recall what color pauldron the POTJ version had now.  Was it black too, or orange?  If this is the first single carded black one, then that definitely gets a big thumbs up.

Han Solo - Rehash for the kids/new collectors.  I guess I understand.  Bleh.

Luke Skywalker - See Han.  But if they made it the VOTC version, and added a floppy hat and poncho, then that'd be pretty damned cool, and easy enough for Hasbro to pull off.

Overall, I'm stoked on the Arcona and R5 selections, as everyone else is.  I'm just bummed that in one of the last couple OT environments with some characters that are still left to be made, that Hasbro couldn't pump out one or two other new ones like I mentioned above.  So that's pretty disappointing to me since it's going to be quite a wait now 'til we eventually get them.
