Yes more action packed Gungans! ;)

I hope the pod racers are Clegg Holdfast & Dud Bolt or Ratts Tyrell

Gungan Rep Been - Yes!  About damn time...

Naboo Soldier - Just hope it's a new sculpt with nice articulation.

Podracer pilots 2pk - Could be cool!

Gragra: Mos Espa Merchant - Wow!  Finally... I did make a custom of this, but am glad they're finally making it

Obi-Wan Kenobi - Please be a new sculpt...

Darth Maul - Probably a rehash...

 :P

These don't sound too bad, although I don't get overly excited about much more from TPM at this point.  I'd like to see VOTC/Evo style figures done of Qui Gon and Obi-Wan though.  I'm really hoping that Obi-Wan is an all new sculpt, done along the lines of ROTS Pilot Obi, and if they repack the Evo Maul or something I guess that would be a good choice.  Podracers pack sounds cool too, and probably wanted by a number of people.

Gungan Rep Been -- Yes yes! ;D
Pod Racer 2pk -- should be kewl.
Gragra: mos Espa Merchant -- Not bad!
Obi-wan Kenobi -- probably pass. I have about a jillion of him already.
Darth Maul -- same.
Naboo soldier -- withholding decision.

I'm really happy to see Gungan Rep Been on there. It'll be a statue, but a statue I've wanted for a while.

The others don't do a whole lot for me, except for Obi-Wan, and until we see images of him, I'll expect a repaint. I'll hope against all hope that he does turn up as new or a reworking of ROTS Pilot Obi with some new head/parts.

The e-mail made it sound like the bottom three were "new", but that doesn't quite fit with the info we have that these waves will be 50/50 new/repacks.   :-\

It doesn't really fit the Naboo theme either. Pod racers and Gragra don't really go with Naboo....  Maybe the Battle of TPM wave but it certainly isn't a Battle of Naboo wave. That being said this sounds like agood bunch of figures, I'll be picking up the new ones for sure and I really hope that they at least sitck an older head on the ROTS Obi-Wan body. All in all this ounds like a fairly good wave.

Nice cheep wave for me. I'll only be buying nine figures total, two each of the new ones and one each of the repacks. ;D

Hmm... another 'coulda' been a contender' wave.  Where is Qui Gon?  SA versions of Obi and Maul?

Rep Been: Cool.  I always liked him.

Podracers: Hopefully Ratts Tyrell is one of them.

Graga: Again, cool, but never a biggie for me.

Naboo Soldier: Can't say I'm too excited.

Obi Wan: If this is a repack, ugh.

Darth Maul: Ditto.

Rep Been: I'll bite on this one.

Podracers: Jury's out until I see who they are.

Graga:  Depends on sculpt.

Naboo Soldier: Depends, but probably pass, and may be a rehash.

Obi Wan: SA, new sculpt then yes. Rehash, nope.

Darth Maul: Will have to beat the POTJ MOTDS and the Evolutions Maul for me to bite.

So, looks like only 1 for sure for me and that fits into the pattern of how I am buying next year. Overall, if I missed this wave, I don't think I would be too sad.

I wasn't expecting much from this wave, but Graga and a Podracer 2 pack sounds great. Hopefully they'll give us a good pair of racers, though I'm half expecting one of them to be Ben Quadrinaros or whatever his name is.

The weird thing is the podracers and Graga aren't even from Naboo.  Not that I mind, but they're sort of throwing all their TPM stuff in one basket.  I do kind of wish they had done that Trophy Swimming Obi Wan.  Sigh.

Graga and the Podracers sound good to me and that Rep Been.  The others I doubt I buy.

The new RS 411 is Naboo

Some interesting news in this wave.  Holographic Maul (yay, never liked the WM one - he had no face tats).  Could it be a Evolutions Maul?  The Trophy edition?  Hmm.  The Obi Wan is perplexing.  Kind of hoped it would be the Trophy one at long last, but maybe it will kit bash Pilot Obi as RS suggests (sweetness).  And a Naboo pilot with tench coat!  Yes!

Looks to be the most boring assortment yet.

A better Battle Droid would have made sense as well as a new Padme and Qui Gon.

Reissuing Sio Bibble and TC-14 would have been cool too.

This assortment is pretty boring to me too, but I don't get too much into figures from TPM at this point either.  Hopefully many people will find some stuff they are looking for in this wave.  The figures I want the most from TPM at this point are actually resculpts/new versions of "main" characters:

SA Qui-Gon Jinn
SA Obi-Wan Kenobi
Padme Amidala/Queen (various versions)
