Like I said earlier, I want Praji and could care less if I got Needa...unless "Needa" came out in a black tunic

This move to drop Praji though isn't the end of the world for me...that wave sounds absolutely stellar and I can't wait to see confirmation/pics

Four Mos Eisley Cantina Monsters - Brainiac, Wioslea, Trinto, and Dice - in one wave?  :o

Four Cantina Monsters in the wave = confirmed   ;D

From Hasbro:
There will be *four* Cantina denizens in the wave this Fall, two of them coming in one pack. One of the characters will be Lak Sivrak's lover, which should be enough of a hint for you to be doubly excited.

I still can't believe we're getting Dice as a pack-in.  Awesome!  :)

4 Cantina guys is mind blowing really...  Dice as a pack-in is a no-brainer too, so I'm glad about that.

I liked seeing the Rebel Fleet Trooper back on Scum's rumor mill there the other day, but am bummed he's not an "immediate" figure I guess.  Just glad to see him listed though.

4 Cantina guys though...  excellent news for collectors.  Sounds more and more like Legacy may be pure us since CW and Legends/whatever are pure them.  That's potentially uber cool.

That is incredible news - 4 cantina aliens in one wave.  That will be a fun wave to watch for!

Wow.  I hope this wave does well.  Elis Helrot and Feltipern Trevagg weren't tremendous sellers, so I hope Hasbro chooses some of the more iconic aliens that have yet to be done.

And here's also hoping that this is an 8 figure wave.  I'd hate to see an entire wave dominated by cantina aliens should this be a 6 figure wave.

At this rate they'll complete the cantina patrons in our life time. :D

Here's a pic from ANH showing (though small and not perfectly resolute) Wioslea sitting in the cantina.  She or it is in the booth just to the right of Luke's face.  I'll have a spot saved for her in my dio then!

According to this week's Q&A we'll be getting a protocol droid as the build-a-figure in this wave.  So 6 figures it is.  Half of which will be Cantina Aliens.

I hope Dice comes with a recsculpted Lak, that figure needs an update bad.
Who did Dice sit next to? I thought it was Lak.

That would be my preference too, JOT- I'd rather a Lak resculpt over a new Trinto, since Lak is more visible and iconic than Trinto.  In fact, I don't think I even knew of Trinto's existence until recent years.  But yeah, before the bastard SE versions replaced Lak with the Pacithip (sp?), Lak was indeed the character across from Dice.

Good eye on Wiosiea in the cantina Daigo-bah. Now I won't feel like I'm cheating when I put her in there.

So, unless my math is wrong, we get three Cantina figures plus a pack-in fourth, plus three other guys for this wave? And we have already been told Stormie Luke, Stormie Han, and Old Ben are on the way correct? Guess that seals the wave.

Now the rumor mills are saying this wave is being bumped to Wave 5, with the Repaints/repacks wave being bumped to wave 4... 

I hope it's true because I'd like to get all 8 of the rumored figures in this wave and not just 6 figures. :)
