*crickets chirp*

Hey Jeff, I guess you didn't get anything on this wave?

I guess my secret source didn't want to go this far.  :(

It is the last of the planned waves for 2006 from what I have read, so maybe it isn't as set yet.  Kinda like the info that I got for the Naboo wave - I only got info on 6 figures when the wave is scheduled for 8 figures.  I'd guess these last 2 waves (Naboo and DS) are still being worked out.

Maybe Toy Fair in a few months will bring us info on this wave?

According to the RS list, the Battle of DS is ROTJ DS2.

According to the list I got this AM, what RS has listed as the RotJ2 wave is supposed to be the Battle of Endor list.   :-\

Most rumors still say that the DS wave is supposed to be ANH based...

And a new "old" Tarkin...

Here's my wants for the new figures in this wave...

• Imperial Fleet Trooper (Death Star Trooper)
• Grand Moff Tarkin
• Imperial Officer (black uniform, ANH style)
• Han in Stormtrooper uniform
• Luke in Stormtrooper uniform
• Chief (?) Bast

And as far as repacks go...

• VOTC Stormtrooper
• TIE pilot
• Scanning crew member (POTJ Imperial officer sculpt, but with jumpsuit painted grey)
• OTC spirit of Obi-Wan painted with solid colors (non-spirit Obi-Wan)
• Death Star Droid

A new, good SA X-Wing Luke would be nice, but they'll probably repack that last POS version they gave us along with the old TIE pilot, Dodonna and a Death Star Trooper.

Someone over at RS has compiled a list of the rumored figures which includes the DeathStar wave. I'll have to give complete details later, but included is suposed to be Luke and Han in Stormtroopers disguises, but no pilots.

Fingers are crossed on the Luke and Han.

Battle of Yavin Wave

From 'Scum:

Han Solo
This version of the rogue will utilize interchangeable parts not unlike the Dagobah Luke Skywalker figure from the OTC line. He’ll be packed with a headset (so he can tell his farmboy friend to blow that thing so they can go home…), interchangeable hands so the figure can have gloves or bare hands, and a medal (!!!).

Luke Skywalker
He’s just blown up the Death Star and about to live all his dreams. The future is looking bright for Luke, so he throws on his stylish yellow jacket (no doubt to impress that hot brunette he just rescued), and goes to get himself a medal of honour. This version of Ceremony Luke will be a complete resculpt.

Rebel Sentry
Remember that Rebel Soldier on sentry duty? You know, the dude in the crows nest scanning the Falcon as it approaches the Rebel Base? We’ll here he is, and if a totally new sculpt isn’t enough for this army builder, he comes complete with his with his little fort in the sky.

Gold Leader
Whoa. Before you go into the forums and say how much the Gold Leader figure packed in with the Y-Wing bit, read the rest of this description. The figure will most likely be built upon the wicked Dutch Vander body, but with a repainted helmet and a totally new head sculpt.

Death Star Trooper
This figure is going to be slightly retooled, but who can say if that’s going to be just a new head sculpt , a repaint, or a total kit bash.

Well... sounds like we are getting some new sculpts... it seems like the majority of people were thinking we wouldn't.  Remember, the glass is half full, not half empty.  New Han and Luke?  New sculpts?  I'm for it!

The X-Wing pilot is welcome I think (wonder if it will be Biggs?) and a Death Star Trooper resculpt would be most welcome.

What intrigues me the most is the Yavin Trooper.  I wonder how close he will be to a regular Fleet Trooper?  If memory serves me correct, it won't be too far off.  Sounds like this could be a great army builder. 

Just for reference, Owen D made one of these with the tower...



I wonder how big of a tower Hasbro could actually pack into it without it being a deluxe?  I'm sure they won't make anything that big, but I do think that this is great news that we might be getting a better Fleet Trooper.  Any pack-in would just be a bonus.

 :P

I wonder if this "Battle of Yavin" wave is what Hasbro meant when they talked about a "Battle of the Death Star Wave" or is this a new wave in addition to the other ones we already knew about?  :-\

That custom is awesome…

I think that the Yavin Sentry or "Yavin Scout" as I call him will be a cross between a Rebel Fleet Trooper and Imp. Officer… I can't wait for this one!

Looking forward to the Rebel and Imperial troopers. Other than that ... *yawn*

I wonder if this "Battle of Yavin" wave is what Hasbro meant when they talked about a Battle of the Death Star Wave or is this a new wave in addition to the other ones we already knew about?  :-\

I hope this is additional, because I was very much looking forward to a DS wave of Imperial officers and army builders and stuff..... :-\

Could my signature be used for much longer?  We shall see....  We shall see...

Sounds like a WHOLE lotta new **** in that wave but no repacks.  Odd, isn't it?
