And wasn't there supposed to be a McQuarrie Rebel trooper?


I assume you mean a McQuarrie designed RT?  I thought so too, Mike.  But since there's 12 scheduled McQuarrie coming and we've seen all 12, most likely we misinterpreted and what we assumed was a McQuarrie designed figure is actually the McQuarrie figure himself.
Still one wave out there for late '07 (The AOTC Wave) which I believe is where that figure is slotted

Which makes no sense to me-how was he involved in AOTC??!

but, have we seen 12 announced? I haven't been counting-if we count all the exclusives plus announced basic figs do we get 12 or are we short?

Hmmm, Ok thanks Brent.

I just found out from Darth Gamboa that the guy working the Hasbro booth told him that while the astromech droid is not removeable with the Ywing, The set will come with an additional astromech droid!

If this was old news then Nevermind!

 :o
Han looks like the definite Bespin version! I love this wave!
Wave 7 is good, but that R2 again? ::) Ghost Anakin looks great though.

The Rebel Fleet Trooper will be revisted at some point in the future

Somewhere Jesse is pooping himself in joy (that the RFT may finally be done right) and rage (that Hasbro will probably screw it up) over this news.  ;D

Are they counting this as a concept figure?

I doubt it.  It's a McQuarrie line - and he didn't design Grievous.

I doubt it too, but I was just wondering if Hasbro was counting it as the 12th "Concept" figure.

Just noticed that JediInsider has some nice coverage up too, with some pics being a little bit closer if anyone is interested.

There's hope left that Lando could be #12 McFig... or Palpy.

It appears that Ghost of Anakin is not coming with Hayden's and Sebastian's heads?

I'd like to see Hobbie without his helmet.

News that we shouldn't expect ICMG (except maybe in a BP) and the Tonnikas anytime soon is sad since they are in high demand.

I'd like somebody to go break the Dutch Vander mold....sheez.  We can get an all new sculpt for everybody in the comic line except the one that needs it most.  Boggles the mind.

I see they had the chance to ask a few questions, anyone ask about Yarna?
