It will be nice to get a few new Padme outfits all at once.

I am stoked about this and I hope this set will have 3 all new outfits.

I'm interested in see who the Rebels will be. I can only guess one would be Wedge since he's a high-demand figure.

I'm pretty excited to see some confirmation on these sets. It will be nice to get a few new Padme outfits all at once.

I'm looking forward to adding the figures to my collection.  But realistically, how are these going to sell?  I saw that fireside Padme on a lot of wishlists for a long time, and they're already pegwarming in a serious way.  Maybe if these Padme's are more action oriented (unlike fireside Padme), and they don't ship in high quantities, we'll be okay.  But I saw A LOT of fireside Padmes at a number of stores the past few days.  That certainly doesn't serve as a strong indicator of widespread love for Padme.

I won't be surprised if the set actually ends up being a Padme-Leia-Jaina set. The set is called "Padme Legacy" and technically, Leia & Jaina are Padme's legacy. ;)

The Padme/Leia/Jaina set also better fits the pattern of mixing an EU figure in there like the other sets seem to be doing...

I'd actually dig a Jaina Solo figure but I'm thinking this will be a figure from each prequel.

That's the first I've heard of someone suggesting that... and I like it.

I was always guessing this set would include:
Padme Naberrie
Padme arena
Padme Buns

While I would love the 3 above figures any trio of Padme does seem to be destined to be a dog on shelf like the Fireside Padme. Jeff's suggestion of Padme, Leia & Jaina makes more sense....

Maybe:
Padme Arena
Slave Leia (with hip articulation to lay down)
Jaina

That would be a cool set with more potential at shelf. Good specualtion Jeff!

I hope it's an all-Padme set and not Padme, Leia, and Jaina, but I'm sure Hasbro would go that route.

I like your ideas, Jay, but for TPM I'd like this:

If not funeral Padme, then this one:

Dorovio Bold=female X-wing pilot from unused RotJ footage

Cesi “Doc” Eirriss=female Twilek X-wing pilot from an early Rogue Squadron comic set before ANH, in which she died

Desin Ommis=Hobbie's gunner in ESB

Wes Janson=Wedge's gunner in ESB

Ten Nunb=Sullustan B-Wing pilot

Keyan Farlander=player character from X-Wing games, he flew the Y-Wing that survived the attack on the Death Star

My guess is Keyan will actually be in B-Wing gear, since these others are all obvious headswap pairs.

Wow, good to have a credible idea on exactly which figures are to come. Too bad most to the pilot ones arn't ideal.

Imperial Pilots, I thought we already had an evo ATOC pilot and do we really need a SA ROTS one? The Biggs I can handle especially if he's in the TIE pilot outfit with removable helmet.

Rebs #1, Wes - yes, Bold - maybe, sounds good on paper, ten Numb, do we really need a third even if it's SA?

Bers #2, Doc - who? (yes I saw Muftak's post) Desin - yes, Lucky - as long as he's human, he'll be okay in my book.
