It's debatable which figure in the SW line is truly king of the pegwarmers: Xizor or the Rancor Keeper. This would make a great thread if there has not been one like this yet.

Moff Jerjerrod, hands down.  Although Xixor and the Rancor Keeper were pretty bad, I have NEVER seen a figure warm pegs as long as Jerjerrod has.  To make it worse, I saw both Xixor and the Rancor Keeper on clearance for as low as a dollar each, and every WM I have been to within 100 miles of my home has between 10-30 Jerjerrods, all at full price to this day. 

I really think they should have put the Rancor Keeper in the set with the Rancor itself instead of Luke, and just rerelease the Luke figure as part of the Saga Legends line.  But hey, this way Jerjerrod won't be so lonely come 2009. :)

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)

You can add Wooof to the confirmed list... :)

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. 

Quoting myself now that we have confirmation of Wooof!  I knew they would do it!

Awesome! One more to strike off of that vintage list.

Add Geezum, Sim Aloo, and an Ackbar resculpt and we've got ourselves a perfect RotJ wave. :)

Wooof delayed until 2010!!!   :'( 

From Han's Hideout:

One note - it turns out that we will not be doing Wooof after all, and instead have made sure he's in the 2010 lineup.  In his place is another Nikto guard.

Bummer.  I was looking forward to Wooof.  But a new Nikto guard could be cool.  Especially if it fills out one of those Kenner vintage slots.

Quoting myself again!  I guess they have the cajones after all  >:(

That's dumb, I was kinda excited for Wooof. But any new palace/skiff guards are definitely cool.

I'm still wondering if a new Nien Nunb might be in the works for this wave.  Hasbro hinted at that back in March in the Q&A sessions.

Just looking back at past Q and A's, don't we have the following confirmed for this (8 figure) wave so far?

New Jedi Luke Skywalker
New Leia of some sort
New Ewok of some sort
New Rancor Keeper
WooofNikto

So what else do you think is on the way for this wave?  I wouldn't mind seeing an all-new Nien Nunb as has been mentioned, and a new Ackbar would be sweet too.  There's a lot of other resculpts I wouldn't mind seeing as well ("ultimate" Endor Soldier/Logray/Wicket/Prune Face/Ree-Yees/etc.), but there's some other all-new characters that could go in this wave as well.

I hope we get the Nikto that shot Luke's hand...

As for other suggestions?  I doubt we get it but we need a new ultimate Endor Rebel.  That's as overdue as all the other rebs to me.
