From SSG:

Princess Leia (likely Medical Frigate)
Luke Skywalker Medical Frigate
Ugnaught 2-pack
Hoth Rebel Trooper
Captain Needa

5 figures huh?  Leaves at least one slot conveniently open for you-know-who.

Yep, another Vader  ;D

Sounds like a pass wave for me. I just need a sweet SA Bespin Luke.

We did get one in the VOTC/VTSC line. There is room for improvement though.

Like the headsculpt, which just killed it IMO.

I definitely think there are more figures in this wave. Vader is a no-brainer and ICMG has already been confirmed. I'd also be stunned if we didn't get an SA Zuckuss in this wave, he's the only ESB bounty hunter left to get an update.

It looks like a pretty nice wave overall (particularly if ICMG is the final figure of the wave).  I really hope we get the all-out SA Hoth Soldier we've been wanting.  Plus, I think the Ugnaughts were due for a resculpt, and the Luke/Leia frigate figures have been requested for a long time.  There are a few other main character re-dos I'd like to see (Bespin Han, Hoth Luke and Leia), but maybe those will fit in the "vintage but not vintage" line that has been rumored off and on.  If they did all new versions of those figures in the basic line, it wouldn't leave much for some of the "big guns".  I'm really looking forward to see what is revealed at Comic-Con.

SA Hoth Rebel Trooper = confirmed.  :)

From this week's answers:

3.  It seems like every so often, someone will bug you in the Q&A about the lack of SA Rebels, so we figure itís our turn this month. Where do we stand on the SA Rebel Trooper redos? Have you had a chance to slot us in that new SA Rebel Fleet Trooper or SA Hoth Trooper yet?

**There will be a new SA Hoth Rebel Trooper in a Spring 2009 wave. A new Rebel Fleet Trooper has not been slotted in yet, but we are looking for an opportunity to get it in, hopefully in 2010.

Yes, this is fantastic news. I hope they do a great job on this Hoth Rebel Trooper - personally I'm hoping the uniform is the Echo Base Exterior White/Gray uniform, but since they haven't really done an interior Echo Base trooper yet, I'd put money down that we'll see that version with this figure.
