Sounds fishy to me.  But what do I know.  I can't say I'm too excited about any of them.

Im excited about the Yavin Sentry since I listed him as a want in one of Chewies Ultra topics a few months ago.  Regarding the Tower.  I would expect something similar to the DLX Kamino Fett tower that was expandable.  Hopefully we will eventually get a Rebel Technician in the future or one of the green outfitted Rebels seen during the ceremony scene in ANH.

The DS Trooper is a no brainer and easy to correct over the Freeze Frame version one.  This is my most wanted Imperial resculpt.  The head is fine but that body blows on the current issue. Lets hope we get the gray suit as a variation along with the black suit. 

Im looking forward to the Ceremonial Han as well, as long as his shirt is buttoned to the top.  Though the Luke ceremony needs updating I could of lived without.

Still disappointed in no Han or Luke Trooper update.

The Rebel Sentry sounds cool and all.  I just wonder if it will come with some sort stand so you can, well, make it stand up in his little crow's nest? 

I am assuming this is another Han in his classic black jacket from ANH.  Eh, it might be neat. 

Luke - Ceremonial- I am actually happy with the old POTF version to be honest.  But knowing me if it's a decent resculpt I 'll probably end up getting it.

Death Star Trooper - Personally I hope it's an all new resculpt.  At least he's finally getting single packed to the stores this time. 

Gold Leader?  I don't get it.  They just put him out there last year didn't they?  Or maybe I have my pilots mixed up or something.  I take it the helmet was not the correct one originally?

I wonder if this "Battle of Yavin" wave is what Hasbro meant when they talked about a Battle of the Death Star Wave...?  :-\

I think that's exactly right, Jeff.

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

I'd like to get a picture of the happy dance you'll do if this turns out to be a SA Rebel Trooper.   :D

That would be a great wave. Too bad that the Luke and Han aren't stormies, but I can still live with a new pilot, DS trooper and rebel sentry.

However, the qestion is, will the Han be cantina Han with a medal. ;)

Bite your tongue!!!

I think it'll be a new one though… Han took the time to button up his shirt during the ceremony so here's to hopin' for a new sculpt. :P

So long as it's the Saga one - that would be awesome.  The TIE Pilot is one of the figures I wish I'd bought 25-50 of but never did.

OK, so I am officially confused now.  We've got these figures from the rumor mill:

Rebel Sentry
Luke Skywalker (Ceremony)
Han Solo (Ceremony)
Rebel Pilot
Death Star Trooper


Is this wave "Battle of the Death Star" Wave?

Or is it the "Battle of Yavin" Wave?

Are they the same thing, with 2 different names? 

Color me confused...  :-\

That's kind of what I was wondering too Jeff, I was wondering if it was the same wave or if we're seeing a couple different ones (which would be better).

I am fairly certain that the "Battle of the Death Star" wave is, in fact, the "Battle of Yavin" wave. The former is just an early rumored title for the wave.

Actually, I read on that "other" site that the Han will be a new scuplt with interchangable parts ala OTC Dagobah Luke. He'd be ready for the ceremony scene and the TIE fighter escape sequence, although I can't see how you could do that with the collar.
