Bummer about Wooof.  I really want that figure.  I was kind of ticked about Malakili being in there but it makes sense with the new Rancor coming up.  A Nikto would be kind of fun though.  He's just not high up on the list for me.

Me too.

I was just thinking though, sadly, every skiff guard made thus far, except for Pote Snitkin, could use an update.

Just thinking about this wave and one figure I wouldn't mind seeing eventually in a ROTJ wave is a new Spirit of Yoda.  Granted, there are a number of new characters and resculpted figures I'd like to see first, but after the new Spirit of Obi in the OTC Collection and the new Spirit of Anakin in the TAC line, I wouldn't mind seeing Yoda get a new treatment as well.  I suppose this would be a good candidate for a repaint wave, but it doesn't sound like we're getting one of those next year.

I thought I remembered there being a rumor at one time that one of the UBPs this year was supposed to be a Funeral Pyre/End Celebration theme with all three spirit figures and the Pyre with Vader.  I think the other rumored one was ANH/Death Star themed, so that rumor seemed to be way off (I think this was at RS, if I remember correctly).

Anyways, it might be a nice figure to include at some point.  Although there are still new figures to include, there's a part of me that wants a number of resculpts from this movie now as well (Ackbar, Nunb, Prune Face, "ultimate" Endor soldier, ewoks, etc.)

Hey Brian- I made a mini dio scene of the jedi spirits, and I'd love some resculpts of all of 'em! (I lightly painted mine with some dull colors)

I'd be all for a new Spirit Yoda based of of the VOTC Yoda followed by a Spirit of Obi-Wan based on the upcoming ANH wave sculpt and reuse the TAC Spirit Anakin robe to keep the "spirit look" consistent.

I'm a little late noticing this, but that's a fantastic diorama!  I love the walkways you built and the subtle repaints are fantastic.

About the unnamed Nikto guard....

I'm wondering if it might be Giran?  His wookeepedia page lists him as a Kadas'sa'Nikto.  And he's one of the Rancor keepers.  I've got to wonder if Hasbro is going to get him in this wave along with Malakili as basic figure tie-ins with the Target exclusive Rancor release.

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


It lists 9 figures, but it's entirely possible that the Scout Trooper is a Greatest Hits figure that's filling out the case.

If this is true here is my early impression.....

1. Scout Trooper (VTSC-06) - WHATEVER
2. Luke Skywalker (Death Star 2) - OK. I am kinda of satisfied with the Legacy Luke.
3. New Slave Leia (with alternative Torso!) - Bigger boobs for the alternate top would be nice.
4. Ewok 2pack - Sweet!
5. B-Wing Pilot - Cool, but been there done that.
6. Major Panno (Pruneface Rebel-Alien) - Finally I can get rid of the POTF2 one.
7. Klaatu Skiff Guard (Warrior Outfit) - SWEETNESS!
8. Malakili - - SWEETNESS in a Yarna pegwarming way.
9. Nikto Skiff Guard - SWEETNESS!

I am very happy that this year is more OTC focused to respark my dwindling interest. I am just so Prequeled out.

That is an awesome wave. Lots of alien coolness there. I'd be very thrilled if this ends up being true, although I do hope we get a new Ackbar soon.

I think the suicide watch can be set on hold for at least a month.

If that pans out it looks like there is quite a bit of OT goodness in that wave, which is never a bad thing. 2009 is looking like it is going to be a good year for OT collecting. :)
