Sweet lord, how can I have forgotten GM Tarkin?  And I believe I meant to write Gold Leader, not Red Leader  :-\
They have made Gold and Red Leader...Red Leader was a crappy POTJ Luke w/ New Head...



Gold Leader was the decent Dutch Vander in Saga



I'd love a new Red Leader

That Red Leader was the definition of The Suck.  And I think Hasbro is fully aware of that.  But the issue with that figure seemed to be that the Gold Leader sculpt which has been getting reused with Wedge, Biggs, Hobbie et al, was too big to fit in the cockpit of the X-Wing.  Hence this figure.  I'm very much in favor of a new Red Leader figure since he really is such a major player in the Battle of Yavin.  I wouldn't mind a Gold 5 either! ;D

As for what I'd like to see in this ANH wave?

-Red Leader resculpt
-Commander Praji - Stormtrooper Officer/Black tunic Imperial Officer from the Tantive IV
-Lt. Pello Scambras - Rebel Fleet Trooper (SA)
-Bom Vimdim
-WED15-1662 droid
-Ben Kenobi (SA update on the VOTC figure)

That sounds perfect to me Nick...and if they do 8 I'd like Wioslea and a new Ponda Baba

I like your add-ons Scott.  The one thing that got me planning a 6 figure wave was Curto's recent rumor report that the ANH wave might be 6 figures, with a Protocol Droid as the B-A-D.  But I also was thinking that my list might be a bit too fanboy-ish, since I've only got the one core character in there.  I think Hasbro might go with 2 core characters in a 6 figure wave.

Also, I threw in Praji because he's been on the rumor lists for a while.  But it's such a natural choice.  The guy has lines, and we've never gotten a black tuniced Imperial Officer.

Thanks, Scott- dangit, I was right the first time; we need a Red Leader resculpt, not Gold Leader.

I like everyone's ideas here too.  I'd like to see them all.  Even though I just did a headswap to get them, I still wouldn't mind single carded versions of Luke and Han Stormtrooper as well - but I'll leave them out of this wave since they are simple enough to make, and we'll likely see them somewhere.

SA, "ultimate" Rebel Fleet Trooper
SA, "ultimate" Obi-Wan Kenobi
SA, "ultimate" Tatooine Luke Skywalker (I still don't feel we have one, even after all the versions)
New Walrusman/Ponda
Bom Vimdim
Commander Praji

If we list alternates (or an 8 figure wave), I'd add in Wioslea, a new Tarkin, a Red Leader resculpt, gray DST, Han/Luke with Stormtrooper belts,etc.  Really, there's a lot of resculpts we could handle over time - even Wedge could use an "all new" version at some point as well (and a single carded retail release!).

A screw it - we need TWO new ANH waves next year.  And both early.  Damn that would be awesome... imagine about a dozen new ANH sculpts, with about half of them being never before made figures.  :)

I agree!!  I'm an equal oportunuty figure fan, but it's the ANH stuff that really floats my boat.  Especially stuff w've never seen.  I'd be happy with Praji, Woislea, Rebel Fleet Trooper, Bom Vinwhatever, and Uncle Owen. Rebel pilots don't interest me that much,  since all of the uniforms are the same.

News of this ANH wave was a great relief, no doubt!  I've enjoyed all the Clone Wars news recently, but at heart I'm still an OT guy, like so many have said.

Give me my Cantina creatures and SA RFT and I'm a happy guy.

Here's what I'd like to see the most if there are only six figures:

Commander Daine Jir


Rebel Fleet Trooper (new, SA)


Walrusman (new, SA)


Leesub Sirln


Obi-Wan Kenobi (new, SA)


Wioslea


If it were to be an eight figure wave, I would add on Gold 5 (couldn't find a picture, it's the one from Nicklab's avatar) and a new Grand Moff Tarkin.

I can't even display that figure any more. Bring on an update!

Just leave it in the X-Wing.  It's embarassing anywhere else.

LOL- his headsculpt is almost 1978 vintage quality.  If the helmet paint markings were slightly less complex...

Just torch that Red Leader and it could be Trench Death Red Leader.

If there's 6-8 in the wave, here'd be my picks:

  • Dr. Evazan
  • Tonnika Sisters
  • Romodi from the DS Conference Room
  • Commander Praji
  • Wed15 Septoid 1662 Droid with 2X-3KPR 2-pack
  • Lt. Lepira (Gold 4)(Yeah, I know he was a pack-in)
  • Bom Vimdim
  • Uncle Owen
