Hmmm.  Let's see what I can think of for a decent ROTJ 8 figure wave.

-Luke Skywalker - Death Star 2 duel
-Emporer Palpatine - new sculpt, SA, softgoods, cane, force lightning
-AT-ST Driver - SA, removable helmet
-Nien Nunb - SA, removable cap
-Paploo & Wicket 2-pack
-Wooof - Vintage Klaatu
-Geezum - Jabba's Palace Snivian
-Weequay - Skiff Master

DS II Luke (SA)
Wicket/Paploo 2-pack
Logray/Teebo 2-pack
Gamorrean Guard (SA)
Nien Nunb  (SA)
Weequay (SA)
Admiral Ackbar

I doubt they'll do two Ewok 2-packs in the same wave, so one of those can be swapped for an all-new Endor Rebel Soldier.

It sounds like a new Malakili (Rancor Keeper) will be part of this wave... 

Interesting - not something I've seen a lot of people requesting, but I'm sure I'll buy him just the same.

Sounds good to me, and makes sense now that we're getting the ROTJ Rancor. Like Jeff said though, it's not my most requested figure, but I'll take it.

Seems like as good a time as any since the Rancor Keeper is one of the handful of figures from the 90s era that has yet to see a resculpt in the past few years.

Cool, I'll take it. Let's have the green Nikto guy that was in that scene with him, too, please! :)

I could've lived without a new Rancor Keeper, but at the same time I don't mind a resculpt.  The first one's not terribly accurate in sculpt (kind of like Piett, it lacks some detail to the likeness mostly) and deco could certainly use sprucing up.  There's about 500 other figures I'd want resculpted first, but eh...  With the new Rancor coming it makes sense I guess.

I feel the same way, and I'm thinking Hasbro wouldn't have the cajones to release a new Malakili in this wave and not a new Palace Klaatu in the same wave.  So they can prevent the attacks with pitchforks by making sure Klaatu is in the wave too!

Well so far...based on Q&A rumors

Return of the Jedi (Spring 2009 Wave 3?)

Luke Skywalker (Death Star II)
Princess Leia of some sort
Malakili
Ewok 2 Pack (Wicket, Paploo or Teebo to be included)

And with good cause.  When I was in Tucson, AZ for a few years, I also saw Malakili sitting around for quite some time.  The only figures I've seen in stores longer are 8D8 and the Ugnaughts, but there is one good thing about this announcement.  If Hasbro will make a new version of Malakili, we are now at a point where there is absolutely nothing in the realm of action figures that would be considered unreasonable, unlikely, or too risky to bring back for the basic carded figure line.

I'd be okay with a new Wicket because he's the most relevant ewok to the plot and because the old one is so bad.  I'd be a little bit less okay, but still okay with a new Paploo since the old one is speeder-bike specific.  But we definitely don't need a new Teebo.

Also, if any ROTJ wave is going to have resculpts in it, the Gammorean Guard and Admiral Ackbar had better be two of them.

For me the 2 most important would be an SA Endor Rebel and and SA generic Dresselian.

Anything else is gravy, could never hurt to make more ewoks.  Ackbar and Nien Numb SA would be stellar as well.

Princess Leia of some sort

I'm pretty sure this is a Slave Leia resculpt.

So what else do I want from RotJ now that half of the wave (if it has eight figures) has been confirmed? Probably something like this:

Admiral Ackbar (new, SA)
Sim Aloo
Gamorrean Guard (new, SA)
Geezum
