By the looks of things, TPM (wave 8) should kick off the packaging refresh.

I donno. I saw the carded Obi-Wan picture too, but they said the new packaging will debut in the fall. Will we only get two waves between now and then?

If people haven't seen it yet, here's a picture of the upcoming Nikto Barge guard

It really does look cool.  I'm really looking forward to adding this Nikto to my skiff guards.  I just wish we'd been able to see the Death Star 2 Luke image that GH was trying to get.

That's just gorgeous.  The paint apps and sculpting detail on the cannon itself are wonderful.

Sandtroopers has a pic up of the upcoming new Slave Princess Leia from this wave, with both sets of legs.

Nice to finally see something from this wave other than Nysad.  I'm really surprised Hasbro has been able to keep this wave under wraps for so long.

Slave Leia looks great  :) I will probably get 2.  I think I prefer the POTJ version still.

Nice! I love it when Hasbro makes the most of a figure.

Brian already linked it JP. 

She looks nicely articulated...  The hips look a little odd, but given the design of the character, I'm pleased with how it turned out.  It's nice to have an articulated bikini Leia since she wasn't lazing around all the time. :)  The swappable posed legs are another "borrowed" idea from the 1:18 military figures...  The last couple waves included pre-posed legs for kneeling or sitting positions.  It's a neat idea, but not something I'm keen on for all figures.  It works well for Leia though, and her awkward lounging pose with Jabba.

Looks good. With the two sets of legs, I smell a packaging variation.
