Unless they use good versions w/ Re-paints & re-hashes (Vader,3PO & R2).

Could you imagine if it was 500th Vader, CT Leia, POTF2 R2 & 3PO and the torture droid from ANH?  :oOuch.  I would save myself some $ then.

Any combo of POTJ Rebel Fleet Troopers would piss me off.

If it doesn't come with VOTC Stormtroopers, I'll most likely pass.

I don't post in this section alot but, I hope that the pack will consist of:

VOTC Leaia
VOTC Vader
SAGA Capt. Antilles
VOTC Stormtrooper
A Tantive IV vingette (They did do the detention block, they are able to do this.)

YEAH RIGHT!!!! In my dreams! I THINK that it will be this:

ComTech Leia-OR-Early Bird Leia
500th Vader
ComTech Stormtrooper
POTJ Imp. Officer
A repack Interogation droid.

Just my two cents.

My Guess - Repack city:

Commtech Leia
VOTC Stormtrooper
Rots 3P0 & Saga R2 (They will break the rule of 5 with this since its crap!)
Repack of the Ultra escape pod

Since Hasbro thinks the POTJ RFT is a good sculpt, I wouldn't be surprised to see it in the pack.  If they corrected the paint job on the helmet, that would be a good first step.   Realistically, I would like see:

2x Rebel Fleet Trooper with separate helmet with chinstrap (corrected paint app)
2x VOTC Storm Trooper
1x (any of the following: Antilles, Leia, Imp Officer, Vader, astromech droid repaint, or silver 3PO - possibly the Ep1 droid or C-3PO repaint)

I'd buy multiples of that set, if they just did a new head sculpts with removable helmets on the RFT, even with the old knee & elbow articulation.

No, that would make too much sense for Hasbro because, after all,  Han was in this movie, even if he wasn't in this particular scene.

The only problem with that is you'd never see any on the shelf  :(

Agreed.  CHEWIE's idea makes far too much sense for Hasbro to follow suit.

These always seem better at the "Concept" stage....the execution really lacks though.

I wish for: 4 VOTC Stormtroopers, 1 Evolutions Vader.

I fear this is:  The highly outdated, improperly scaled and un-articulated Commtech Stormtrooper, the under-articulated Capt. Antilles, VOTC C3P0, R2D2 and that Vader that is clogging the shelves now (I don't know which version that is).
