The wave does sound pretty good, if it holds true.  There are still a number of re-dos I wouldn't mind seeing from ROTJ though - Ackbar, Nunb, and Gamorrean Guard in particular.  That said, the wave does sound good to me - hopefully we'll get a look at these at Toy Fair.

This rumor/retail list just popped up this morning regarding the ROTJ wave....


1. Scout Trooper (VTSC-06)
2. Luke Skywalker (Death Star 2)
3. New Slave Leia (with alternative Torso!)
4. Ewok 2pack
5. B-Wing Pilot
6. Major Panno (Pruneface Rebel-Alien)
7. Klaatu Skiff Guard (Warrior Outfit)
8. Malakili
9. Nikto Skiff Guard


I don't know about Malakili, but otherwise, great wave.

Sounds like an awesome wave to me. I hope it turns out to be true!

Looks good, hopefully we see some product at Toy Fair.

Skiff Guards are long overdue for sure.

I got a confirmation on this wave indirectly from a retailer.  So I guess the Sullustan will be the B-Wing pilot.

Alternate torso?  How would that work?

My take on the alternate torso is similar to the Dagobah Luke: 2 poses necessary to recreate the scenes.  So I think one will allow her to recline somewhat.  The B-Wing pilot being a Sullustan is disappointing if true; they could have single carded the human pilot and I'd have bought several.  As it is, I already painted my white Sullustan red.  I'm most excited about the new Prune Face- he'll be added to my briefing scene diorama.

I was going to say the same thing, the other torso will be for reclining Leia

Yeah, but then we'd have to have a proper Jabba set for it to go with. *crosses fingers*

Of all the POTF2 figs that need new sculpts, I wouldn't rate Prune Face and the Rancor Keeper high among them, so this is a little disappointing.  And why not just do Nien Numb if you're going to do a red B Wing pilot?  The Leia is interesting, as are the Ewoks and Skiff Guards.  My hopes for the Ewoks are either Paploo/Wicket, or the two dudes who jacked the chicken walker.  Always wanted those.
