The latest Q&A session from SW Collector
had this question & answer.
3.) We're only two years away from the tenth anniversary of STAR WARS: EPISODE I - THE PHANTOM MENACE. Knowing how far in advance you have to plot out figures, is it too early to start hoping for all-new, super-articulated sculpts of Qui-Gon Jinn, Darth Maul, and Obi-Wan Kenobi?
ANSWER: It would be a shame to wait that long for quality sculpts of such core figures.
We already know about the super articulated Qui-Gon. But the Maul & Obi-Wan are pleasant surprises. Though the Evolutions Maul is a good figure it still needs ball-joint elbows & a more neutral head.
