Commtech Stormtrooper
SA Death Star Trooper w/ Blaster
Prisoner Chewbacca w/ Binders and long rifle

Personally I am hoping for Han and Luke in Super Articulated Stormtrooper disguises.  Use the VOTC stormtrooper body and I would be happy with that.  Please not repacks of the POTF or those Death Star sets Hasbro please!!! 

I would not mind a SA Luke X-Wing pilot but I doubt that happens.  More likely he'll be repacked again from the OTC line. 

A nice new Wedge would have been welcome but I think the exclusive shows they will not make this.  So, he is out apparently. 

Probably get a Kenobi, Vader, Stormtrooper, Han & Luke Stormtrooper, Gunner, TIE Pilot and hopefully a new Tarkin.

My "dream team":

New:

--Chief Bast, General Tagge, or other new Imperial officer

(runner-up: SA Death Star Trooper)

Repacks/repaints:

--Commtech Vader with interrogation droid or VOTC Vader
--RA-7 Death Star droid
--Grand Moff Wilhuff Tarkin (probably ROTS version repainted)
--VOTC Stormtrooper
--generic Imperial Officer (POTJ, Saga 2002) with a couple variant heads. And hey, how about a paint variation depicting the Scanning Crew trooper, since the body itself looks pretty similar.

(runners-up: Early Bird Leia, 2004 Saga TIE Pilot)

Deluxe/Ultra/vehicle:

--Gunner station

Hasbro ussually doesn't do VOTC repacks, and personally I would much rather have a normal stormtrooper have a high case count then a Luke or Han trooper. In fact I think I speak for most collectors when I say all Imperial army builders and Officers should have a more than 1-per-case count.

As with the Endor wave, here's my list of figures I'd like to see from another thread, with explanations:

BATTLE OF DEATH STAR (8 figures):

-SA Han Solo in Stormtrooper Disguise (VOTC body with Han head, removable helmet, blaster pistol, and rifle)

-SA Luke Skywalker in Stormtrooper Disguise (VOTC body with 2 Luke heads (one regular, one slicked back hair), removable helmet, blaster pistol, and decent cuffs for Chewbacca)

-SA Obi-Wan Kenobi (especially with ball jointed elbows and shoulders, plus articulated knees and ankles; also includes lightsaber, soft goods cloak like the Evolutions Anakin, and a lightsaber hilt)

-SA Death Star Trooper (completely redone, with blaster pistol, blaster rifle, removable helmet and possible head variants, and a Mouse Droid better than the hollow plastic one)

-Princess Leia Organa (Early Bird version, just because)

-TIE Fighter Pilot (Saga 2004)

-Stormtrooper (VOTC 2004, repacks be damned)

-Grand Moff Tarkin (ROTS 2005 version with repainted/resculpted head and Imperial Interrogation Droid)

How about a Stormtrooper Disguise figure with swappable Han, Luke, and helmet heads? You can buy one and alternate the heads, or buy two or three so there's one of each--everybody's happy.

OK, six figures to guess, eh?  Once again I'll assume 3 new, 3 repack/repaint.

3 NEW Figures:
SA Death Star Gunner
SA Han Solo (Stormtroop Disguise)
SA Luke Skywalker (Stormtroop Disguise)

3 repack/repaints:
Saga 04 TIE Fighter Pilot - army builder = OK
RotS Tarkin with "Old Guy" head - easy to do
FF Death Star Droid - hasn't been out since 98 and it was an exclusive before

I'd be happy with those...

Is there a prize for correctly guessing the assortment?

Seriously, this is the set that I'm most excited about and ironically it's at least a year a away. :-[

According to RS, where all this information came from, the DS wave is 6 figures. The various waves range from 6 to 8.

Yeah, same here.  ;D

I know there are no Battle of Bespin waves, but how cool would it be to get a Carbon-Freezing Chamber Stormtrooper like my avatar?

I'd like to see the lineup Jeff came up with here.  The SA Han and Luke should be easy enough for them to do, just use the VOTC Stormie body and come up with some new head sculpts, and they would be some nice figures.  The repacks sound good too, I'd especially like to see a new "old" Tarkin.  It would be nice to see the VOTC Stormtrooper repacked in this wave, but I don't know how likely that is.  Sure would be good though ;).

My predictions would be these in some fashion.

Han in Stormtrooper disguise, Luke, Leia, Stormtrooper, Obi-Wan, and Darth Vader.

BATTLE OF DEATH STAR (8 figures):

-Stormtrooper Han; VOTC body with removeable helmet and blaster.
-Stormtrooper Luke; See above.

I think we should get just Han in Stormie duds because the last Han Stormie we got was a Froot Loops exclusive while the Luke Stormie was wide-release.
