I hope this wave isn't cancelled.I'll be happy if it's the first wave of 2007,which'll hopefully come out in Nov/Dec,like Carkoon.

Now that the idea has been brought up, I think that next year will be a completely OT line. OTC2 would be a very good name, but I think the title will correspond with the whole 30th Anniversary more. Hopefully these Yavin figures really will start OTC2...maybe this time, they could start from the begininng and move onwards, unlike the TSC that started with ROTJ, then ESB, then AOTC, then ROTS, then ANH, then ROTJ, and lastly TPM. ::)

SDCC is still around the corner, and it's only June too...  At the pace we dealt with for the start of the year you never know what's up this year or what we haven't even seen yet.

I think likely we see a whole slew of figures planned for the rest of 2006 announced at the CC. Even though last year WAS a movie year, typically Hasbro releases several more product announcements for the rest of the year at the CC whether it be more new or recently leaked info. I would be shocked if I'm sitting at the Q&A and they stand up and say.."OK, this is what we got.." and it's a short announcement. 8)

If only it was a Lucas Death Star Trooper instead of a Lucas Stormtrooper.............................

So does anyone know for sure if this wave is:

1) still coming out (after the combined Endor/Naboo wave)
2) getting pushed into next years wave on all new cards
3) getting cancelled alltogether

I'm voting for #1 (obviously).  I think it could still happen.  My Endor Wave of 5 figures is arriving on Monday.  That would leave only 1 more wave of Saga2 for the rest of the year.  That would also be 2 more waves of H/V, but I think wave 2 is due pretty much any day now.  So only 2 more figure waves in the next 4 months just sounds thin compared to the rest of the year.  I figure the Saga30 stuff will start showing up in December like normal.  Any ideas, thoughts, wait for ComiCon I guess?

I'm wondering the same thing. As far as I know, it's been officially canceled as wave 8 '06. I would hope that the planed figures would see the light in a different line.

I believe Hasbro at some point a few months back mentioned that they were still going to happen but would be pushed out in one of next years assortments.

How about both 1 and 2?

What better way to kick off a new assortment, celebrating the 30th anniversary of the first film, than with a wave of new figures from that film's climactic scene?  And technically, they'll be 2007 figures, but they'll show up around Thanksgiving, just like "the next year's product" always does.

That's what I'm guessing, anyway.  But we'll find out for sure in just a few days. . .

New 30AC Wave Confirmed: Yavin

Read the full story at RS

Sounds pretty neat, hopefully the Death Star Trooper is newly sculpted, the POTF2 was ok. Including both a E-11 Rifle and DH-17 Blaster would be cool, but I'm only expecting an E-11.

If they are all new that would be the one of the best wave for '07, since most waves will probally have re-packs/re-paints. :)

It's VERY good news BUT if it doesn't get a DH-17 and holster I might actually be moved to violence.

Hasbro will probably use the TSC Death Star Gunner mold for the Death Star Trooper. I took the new D.S. Gunner and put on the POTF2 D.S. Trooper helmet and its fits perfect but problem. Jango head sculpt.

I certainly hope not. The gunner body is not the ideal body for the trooper because of the uniform or lack of correct one.

Not to beat a dead horse, but no one seems to mind that the BARC is just a repainted Biker Scout, or that the Conference Room Tarkin is the Rots sculpt.  Seems like people will accept things that are "kinda" accurate these days...
