So, yeah - like Pete said you should still see movie stuff on the shelves next to the CW stuff. 

Thanks for the clarification Jeff, that's exactly what I needed to know.

As for Wave 3 rumor, I'm not getting my hopes up.  Many figures on that list could be repacks, repaints, or kit-bashes, so I'm not getting too excited until we hear/see more...  it sure will suck when it's revealed that the Armor Obi-Wan and Ilum Padme are just carded releases of the old BP figures.   :-X

Ideally, I hope you're wrong, but realistically you're probably right.  If they're willing to repack figures in the basic figure line, then they're likely willing to do the same in the CW line.  But even so, surely they realize how sucktastic that Ilum Padme was?  :-\

I dunno - as far as Padme figures go, it is hardly the worst one ever made - the first AOTC Padme with the quick-draw action was far worse IMHO.

Didn't they say in one of the Q&A's that they thought it was "pretty darn good for a preposed figure"?  :-\

Something along those lines...

I've found from the Q&A's I've read that, any time you ask them a question and slip in, "I think that could've been done better", they usually seem to imply they feel whatever it is was quite nice in the first place...  Snowbunny Padme fit in with the current line about as well as screaming Mace Windu fits in with the current line...  ;)

Pointless to argue of course, but she was a less than stellar figure.  I guess as pre-posed figures go, she's ok though...  Maybe they had a point?  To each their own I guess.

I sure hop that A-Wing re-release utilizes the Tyco body. Bummer about Basic wave 3 though.  :(

Well I am actually looking forward to wave 3 the most.  But yes, hopefully some OT basic figures will come out soon afterward?  At least some nice figures from Indiana Jones are coming out pretty soon.  Although none from Temple of Doom?

That definitely lends some creedence to the earlier reports we saw of these Evolutions sets.  And there had been mention of the V-19 previously as well.  The Spider Droid invariably has to be the Homing Spider Droid, if it's indeed part of a vehicle assortment.

Ooh, Rebellion pilots!  Can't wait to see what that is!  Maybe a ANH Wedge, ESB Snowspeeder Dack, and a B-Wing pilot?

I wonder seeing as rebel pilots are listed twice with two different UPCs, Could it be a running change like there was with clone/stormtrooper set during ROTS.  Maybe head swaps??  could explain so many pilots listed on all the rumor lists.  just a thought.

I am hoping that a Luke Snowspeeder and Wedge (Xwing or snowspeeder) are in the mix.  It would be nice to get a Naboo Pilot with long coat and a red-suited B-Wing pilot from the vintage days.  We'll see.  It should be interesting.

This is good news. I'm not as excited about the EVO sets as I am the vehicles, especially the Spider Droid.

Wow, the AT-TE AND Spider Droid in one year! I may faint!

Well it IS the right year for it what with the cartoon and all.
