One things for sure: Hasbro won't give us a RF Trooper anytime soon according to their most recent Q&A....

Hmmm... the capture makes it sound me like it won't have any battle sequence, so that might eliminate Rebel Fleet Troops.  I think it SHOULD be more along the lines of this -

That may be correct.  I all for stormies, droids and officers.  I would hope for a different droid or a repaint of that one, same goes for the officer.  I know we are stuck with 500th Vader, just like this year.

Man, that would be cool to get a new head on that officer Gatillo.  And if we somehow pulled two VOTC Stormies out of this... damn.

I'm not expecting new RFT's but thanks for the thoughts guys.  It almost brings a tear to my eye to know I'm on your mind. ;)

If it's a couple VOTC Stormtroopers, a droid (I'd like a repainted one over the R4 unit...  There are a couple astro's so I'd go for something new hopefully), I'm assuming Vader, and I'm going with Antilles...  That'd not be too bad.  The Vader will suck but I can use all the rest of it personally.

I'm hoping no POTJ Fleet Troopers make the cut...  Hasbro can say what they want, but arms with no articulation do not equate a "pretty good" figure for poseability...  I hope they retire that SOB.

Even if they added articulated elbows to that RFT, it still sucks by today's standards.  In 2001, I thought it rocked.  But now, this figure needs a resculpt so badly.

The RFT was a great improvement on it's previous version.  The POTF2 version was utter dreck.  When the POTJ version came out it was a great step in the right direction.  And I think I understand Hasbro's statements about it in the most recent Q&A.  Late next year or perhaps in '08 this would be a great trooper to revisit.  But in actuality, I think the Hoth Rebel Trooper needs revisiting much more than the RFT.

As for the lineup, I think the following is likely...
Darth Vader
Stormtrooper
Rebel Fleet Trooper
Captain Antilles

I'm still confused on something: Where exactly did Hasbro say that BPs next year would be four figures and an accessory rather than five figures with accessories?  I'm just wondering where this was definitively stated and, if not, how this was inferred.  With recent comments about the box size being the thing that dictates what gets packed in the box, I don't see how many of these larger accessories (some of which, mentioned in other threads like the Geonosian Sonic Cannon) could even fit when taken apart.

And as far as what I would expect to see in a Battle Pack like this (I probably said something different in another thread, and I'm sticking with five figures):

-Darth Vader (CommTech version)
-Stormtrooper (CommTech version)
-Rebel Fleet Trooper (POTJ version)
-Princess Leia (either Early Bird or CommTech version)
-Imperial Officer (POTJ version)

As for what I'd like to see/what would convince me to buy it:

-Stormtrooper (VOTC x 2)
-Darth Vader (VOTC version with retooled torso/shoulder plate)
-Rebel Fleet Trooper (new SA sculpt x 2, just for Jesse) :)

It was mentioned in the Rebelscum article that purportedly listed so much of the 2007 line.  So it's certainly not definitive until Hasbro has their say.

I think the only way this set could be disapointing (aside from using POTF2 sculpts,) is to have the set consist of Vader, Leia, 3PO, R2 and a lame accesory.
