Why am I not surprised? :P

Well, high on my list are:

Grey Death Star Trooper
Grey Imperial Tech (imperial office)
Any R5 repaint (red leaders preferred)
CZ-3

I definitely would not mind that Obi-Wan in flesh colors. We need a really definitive SA Old Ben, it's amazing how great versions of the main characters are still missing. I am starting to believe Hasbro does this on purpose to keep us coming back.....

I'd actually also like to see a Gree repaint (plain white or 212th Battalion) in this wave.

Since I only collect OT-era Imperials, I can only offer my opinions on those chars, but... some I'd like to see are:

1) Death Star Commander - Yes! A very needed character who would be easy to make
2) I second the red Stormies, although I know alot of purists will hate them. I think they are cool and I'm sure they'd sell strongly.
3) The gray Imperial technician idea above is a good one, although the arms of the "Imperial Officer" figure are so limited and awful. Perhaps use differenly jointed arms so they can straighten out?
4) My biggest want, however is...

A repaint of the excellent ROTS Red Guard, to make a new RotJ Royal Guard! His sculpt is superb, in fact one of the best Hasbro has ever made, period. Give him black gloves and more red/black armor rather than the purple (or just use Kir Kanos if Hasbro is REALLY lazy), and use the nicer robe material from the TFU Shadow Guard, but red. Also a force pike (from an older figure) instead of the gun. This would be an unbeatable figure. For bonus points make the robe removable so he could be in a sort of "battle-ready" situation if desired.

I'd like to see more Imperial EU if possible, and this might be attainable through this wave.

New rumor list from Curto says this wave is Wave 4 and apparently ANH is bumped to Wave 5.

Wave 4: Repaints & Repacks Basic Figures
- Coruscant Landing Platform Clone Trooper
- Count Dooku (Hologram)
- Imperial Engineer (from Star Wars: Battlefront II)
- Jodo Kast (from Star Wars: Twin Engines of Destruction)
- Saleucami Trooper (from Treachery on Saleucami Battle Pack)
- Yaddle & Even Piell (from Jedi High Council screen scenes)
- B-A-D: RA-7 ("Death Star Droid")


Ugh.   ::)

While there are a few things in there I like (Landing Platform Gray #41 Clone), I can see I'm going to get stuck with a lot of crap if I want to build this wave's RA-7 droid (i'm looking at you Yaddle and Holo Dooku >:().

Sigh.  Well, at least the B-A-D concept is moving over to other droid types such as the excellent and sleek RA-7 style.  That said, I hope he's a crazy-colored one that I don't feel I need to get.

Wow, I'm a bit disappointed by the lineup as well.  Like Jeff said, there's a couple of figures that I like - but there's going to be a lot of crap to buy to get the Build-a-Droid (which I will likely want).  It just seems like there were some better choices for this wave, particularly the figures that are just repacks (Jedi, Saleucami Trooper, etc.)

Pass on everything from this horrible wave. I'll wait for the eventual RA-7 rerelease.

Anyone know what the "Imperial Engineer" looks like? If he's cool I'll definately grab a few.

It's an AT-ST driver (and a TIE pilot in space levels and an AT-AT driver in cold environments) and since these are repacks and repaints I'd assume we'll get the AT-AT driver from 2006 with some tools for accessories since it's the best figure out of the 3 that Hasbro has available.

Hmmm.. that AT-AT figure is a great sculpt, with good articulation... yeah I'd take a few in a different paint scheme. The AT-ST driver from the recent Battle Pack isn't quite as inspiring, and if they choose that figure I hope they at least swap in some reasonably good arms.

I'm only really disappointed in Piell/Yaddle.  Custom fodder I guess, but at the end of the day what a waste those two are...  Hopefully they have lightsabers to make them at least remotely interesting apart from their original figures.  Lameness personified though.

I dig holo Dooku actually...  Separatists need a leader to talk to via satelite too I suppose.  I think a lot of the gummy Jedi were much lamer.
