Kind of a tough one, as I'm looking forward to a lot this year.  This looks like it could be one of the best all-around years for collecting yet (and most expensive).  Anyways, if I look at it from the aspect of "if I could only afford to buy the minimum, what would make the cut", my top two priorities - if I couldn't buy anything else - would be:

VTAC Collection (Hoth Han, Bespin Luke, Endor Leia, Snowtrooper, IG-88, Bossk)
McQuarrie Concept Figures

Other than that, from what we have seen/confirmed, I'm looking forward to these as well:

Jawa w/LIN Droid
Stormtrooper
Luke Skywalker (Jedi)
Boba Fett (Animated)
CZ-4
Hermi Odle

I'm pretty much looking forward to all of the figures this year, particularly the OT ones, and also many of the ones that have been rumored so far (Bespin Han, Smuggler Lando, Yoda w/Kybuck, Roron Corobb, etc.)  Its going to be a good year.

Thought I'd bump this up with all of the great stuff we've seen out of CIV the last couple days.  Really, the basic line as a whole looks outstanding to me, and this might be the first time in a long time where I pick up each of the regular figures.  Aside from the stuff mentioned previously (VTSC, Basic Line through Wave 4), here's a few of the figures/stuff I'm looking forward to for the rest of the year:

Hermie Odle
New Salicious Crumb (w/3PO)
Roron Corobb
Yoda w/Kybuck
Wave 6 - ESB (Han w/torture rack, Smuggler Lando, SA 4-LOM, General McQuarrie, McQuarrie Snowtrooper)
Ewok 2 Pack
A-Wing Pilot
R2-B1
All McQuarrie Figures (regular and exclusive)
Y-Wing (since I missed it earlier times)

Really, I could probably list all of the figures in the basic line (and comic packs), because they all look great to me.  Some of the video game stuff (Darth Malak/Revan) isn't a real big deal to me since I'm not real familiar with them, but I will admit they are nice figures and I'll probably pick them up.  Everything in the regular, basic line looks outstanding for the most part though.

After seeing the wonderful pics, I think Han w/torture rack might be my most anticipated!  The figure itself looks so good that I can use him in multiple dioramas, such as Echo base command center, Bacta chamber, and a couple Bespin dios too.

For me it's Hermi Odle.

ditto.....I'm kinda wondering if he'll come in two pieces and need to be assembled....I've seen no inkling that Hasbro intends on increasing the bubble size as they did for Ephant Mon.

Hermi's pretty high on my list too, but the A-Winger and EWok pack are right behind him.

Gawd there is too many to list.

There will be one in each wave at least. Then once we get that, we'll move on to the next one.

Just WAY to much to whittle it down to one most anticipated.

Concept Chewbacca. I remember thinking, the first time I saw McQuarrie's art, how awesome and completely impossible it would be to get an action figure of that Chewbacca.

It WAS the DST, but we all saw how that turned out....

Then it was the Vintage Snowtrooper..got him and opened him...GREATNESS...

so the next big chance for disappointment, I mean Anticipation...is the Jawa....maybe after this weekend Tycho Celchu.
