I guess I am the only one looking forward to this wave then, considering I dont have the clone troopers or the jedi. lol It is good from my pov but I can see why those who already have the jedi are not looking forward to it.

Lack-luster wave for me too. If the Imperial engineer is from BFII, wouldn't he be just a repaint from the BFII set?

My thoughts on this wave:

Coruscant Landing Platform Clone Trooper: cool, I "might" army build this one. At the least I'll get 2 squads to help (5 in each squad)
Count Dooku (Hologram): excellent. I'll get one of him
Imperial Engineer (from Star Wars: Battlefront II): someone refresh my memory, which one is this?? Are we talking another Imp gunner or AT-AT driver?? I'll get one for the droid part.
Jodo Kast: I'd pass but for the new droid piece
Saleucami Trooper: never liked the one with the FIXED visor on the front of the helmet. I'll get one for the new droid piece only-sigh
Yaddle & Even Piell: one for the droid piece. Not really interested in the jedi, unles they are new or significant upgrades.
B-A-D: RA-7 ("Death Star Droid") I'm hoping this is the silver version of RA-7. If not, and it's the previous black version, then I may pass on several of these figures.

So by the look of the droid it is new. Wow, other than the Coruscant clone, and Dooku, I'm not excited by the wave. One of each other than the Coruscant clone. Hmm, cheap wave for me!

I hate to come off as a know-it-all jackass, but some folks are getting the Imperials confused with the Republic Troopers. The BF II sets were based on the Republic and Seperatist factions... the Imperial faction is completely different, like the movies.

I'm thinking the this will be a Death Star Gunner figure with a gray jumpsuit. It would be nice if Hasbro included an AT-ST Driver Helmet to make the figure similar to the game(s). (The costumes changed depending on what planet you fought on)

If I had played the game more, that would have occurred to me. :P

I am all for this wave, the Holo Dooku & the Jedi 2pk are a the only two that would have been a pass for me,  but to Complete the BAD I guess I'll pick them up to complete it.   Unless it is Droid I already have.   
The three troops are army builders and I am all over another Mondo.

Isn't it strange, but I'm excited about Jodo Kast as well...the most obvious repaint of all time, but a figure I've wanted since the line started.

Edit: Found a picture of this wave over at Galactic Hunter too...



now what's the difference between an Imperial Engineer and a Gunner..?

This wave is pretty weak.  What sucks for me is the silver RA droid no doubt will be the BAD fig.  Sigh.   :(

Yeah, I thought the same thing.  This is one of the waves that I might have skipped some of the figures, if not for the Build a Droid.  I like a couple out of there, but could have probably done without a few others with all the spending coming in the second half of the year again this year.
