That's what I was hoping as well.  If we go by the "30 figures this year" from Hasbro's presentation info on the Legacy line, along with the fact we know the first 16 figures of the line, and that there will be 8 figure (2 astros) and 6 figure (protocol) makeups of the waves - I guess we'll have one more 8 figure wave, and a 6 figure wave to finish out the year - one of which will be ROTS themed.  I really hope the other remaining wave is from an OT movie.

We already have seen Hasbro say there won't be a TPM wave until 2009, and we now know that there is a ESB wave in 2009 (Willrow!), so I would think the last wave is between AOTC and ANH, more likely ANH, but we'll see.

ROTS wave, after we got one this year already?  Hmmm...  I like ROTS a lot, and I think there's a lot of room for that film to get new stuff yet, but I really wasn't expecting another wave.  Makes sense since it ties to the CW so well.

I really am hoping we see a new Rebel Trooper of some type this year.  Gotta get either RFT or Hoth out there.

I agree totally.  Its kind of sad to think that characters like the Naboo Soldier, Coruscant Speeder Pilot (a nice figure), and EU stuff have nice, super articulated figures before the Rebel soldiers of the Original Trilogy.  Not saying that the other stuff isn't nice (I'm surprised at how nice the Mandalore figure from the Fett Evo set is, even though I know nothing about him/it), but I'd rather see the SA Rebels before much to all of it.

Wow.  Hasbro really likes their ROTS.  The only major thing I want out of that movie they haven't done is a Senate Duel Sidious and if there isn't one in this wave, I will be stunned.

Not sure why they would go with 2 ROTS waves this year, not really too excited about that.

Another ROTS wave? Wow. I would've preferred OT, but I don't mind as long it's cool.

I'd like to see:
Stass Allie (new, SA)CONFIRMED
Bana Breemu
Bail Organa's Server Droid
Padme Amidala (Senate Rotunda)
Cin Drallig (w/holographic variation)
General Grievous (new, SA, accurate scale)
Queen Organa
Polis Massan Medical Droid

With another ROTS, you know there's going to be another clone or two. What clones are left to do though besides Gree style re-makes?

Technically, they haven't done a clean 41st Elite from the Coruscant Landing Platform yet.  Yeah, I know they did the Clone Commander and it can be easily modified to be a regular trooper, but I'd much rather see it as a non-RH figure without the excessive dirt and grime. 

As for what I'd like to see:

-SA Ultimate General Grievous (properly scaled with soft goods cape)
-SA Ultimate IG-100 MagnaGuard (properly scaled with soft goods cloak)
-SA Darth Sidious (Senate Duel)
-Padme Amidala in Peacock Gown
-Utai Two Pack
-Nute Gunray

I think that's one of the most crucial figures requiring a resculpt for ROTS.
