Not many choices at all. It's safe to say there won't be any surprises save for pilot gear Luke.

Here's what I expect:

POTF2 Spirit Ben
POTJ Vader
OTC Luke in Training Gear
ROTS Yoda
ROTS R2

EDIT: I was thinking more about the ROTS Yoda and his use in the modern line and thought maybe Hasbro would realize he's been used too much already. In that case, I'm still wondering which Yoda is still in surplus over there...Perhaps the POTF2 Hairy Yoda? :P

Well, here's my list of what I expect to see now that we know they're sticking with the five figure set-up for next year:

-Luke Skywalker (OTC Dagobah Training)
-Yoda (OTC Dagobah Training)
-R2-D2 (Saga 2002 Dagobah X-Wing Pack-In)
-Obi-Wan Kenobi (OTC Dagobah Spirit)
-Darth Vader (POTJ 2000 Dagobah Spirit)

Everyone who thinks we're going to be seeing gobs of unsold Battle Packs this spring, raise your hand!

According to RS, some info was released about some of the battle packs at a convention in the UK.  This set is rumored to include "Yoda, R2-D2, and Luke fighting himself as Darth Vader."

Seems like most of the battle packs wont have any new figures, will be passing on all of them i think except for Illum as long as it has Snow Bunny Padme

In one of he QnA questions last week, Hasbro pretty much confirmed that these "basic" Battle Packs would be all re-packs for the kids, while the "Exclusive" Battle Packs will be collector-oriented.

From www.FFURG.com:

Quote
FFURG:  Along the same line as above, what about a ROJ Rebel Briefing with SAGA General Madine, Mon Mothma (new using the ROTS sculpt), (retooled) Admiral Ackbar, and SAGA General Calrissian with a hologram Death Star II?

Hasbro:  Ahh - great question! The mainline, or national battle packs are designed with kids foremost in mind. That's why there are very few new, and they are more commonly themed repacks with a heavy concentration of recognizeable and cool kid characters along with a couple lesser known characters to complete the theme (Battle for Sarlacc being a prime example of this).

Now for exclusive battle packs, we take a different approach. We design these to be collector-targeted, knowing that if we strike the right chord they are something collectors will want to go to that retailer to find and ensure the sell-through at the retailer. This is why the exclusive battle packs have more of a troop building flavor to them. They are designed specifically to ensure that the packs will be able to sell through in a certain period of time.

That explains why these recently announced sets are all repacks, but the TRU Exclusive CW one and the Target Skirmish and Mace sets all have new figures, specifically new Clones.


In other words, don't be prepared to get excited about any Battle Packs unless they are exclusive...  ;)

Well that makes sense (only in Hasbro's world).

I can only assume that there are more collectors these days than kiddies buying SW just because the movies are over.

So let's make the ones the collectors want store exclusives - that'll make them easy to find.

My hand is up...

I just don't see buying much of these. I don't mind them being released, it gives many people a chance to amass a bunch of OT figures they might not have. But it gives my wallet a break.

Yep. I presume this one will pegwarm more than any other BP. Oh, and Obi-Wan never used his saber on Dagobah. :P
