The cynical side of me has to ask... which part of the Hoth trooper will they screw up to keep it from being "ultimate"? ;)

Happy thoughts, happy thoughts, happy thoughts....

Ah ****, you're probably right, but please think positive on this and the 2010 Rebel Fleet Trooper getting made, and made to perfection.  ;D

Definitely great news to get this confirmed for next year.  The Rebel troops have really been lacking in attention, and its nice to hear that we will hopefully be getting a couple (hopefully "ultimate" versions) in the next couple years.  I know they are some of my most wanted figures at this point, and hopefully Hasbro knows they really need to knock them out of the park after the long wait (and fairly crappy previous versions of these figures).

Ugnaughts Confirmed

I'm just guessing here but I'm going to say that Willrow is going to be in the 2nd wave of ESB figures next year...and the rumored line up will hold true:

Princess Leia (Medical Frigate)
Luke Skywalker (Medical Frigate)
Ugnaught
Hoth Rebel Trooper
Captain Needa
Zuckuss?? (I'm just guessing here)

Hasbro also confirmed that there's an Imperial Officer in the works, but wouldn't ID him by name.  That may in fact be Captain Needa.

That's probably a pretty safe bet.

As for the BAD for this wave, it might be a way to get E-3PO. It fits in with the other protocol BADs and keeps the ESB theme going.

As for the Ugnaught I hope he comes with a crate filled with 3PO's parts or maybe a carbon freezing room console.  8)

I do not think it's Needa, I think it's Piett. Hasbro said: "an upgraded officer (although he will be named, and not generic)". They confirmed an upgraded officer, they never made Needa. That leads me to believe it's Piett.

Agree or disagree?

As much as we need a Needa, we need an upgrade of Piett.

I sorta took the "upgraded" comment to mean compared to the sculpt of past officers as opposed to a direct comparison by way of a character resculpt, but either way I'm excited!  Getting another Ugnaught is great; too bad only one (better accessories then).  I'm really not worried about the quality of the upcoming Hoth trooper because recent new sculpts have been terrific.

I think the upgraded officer is going to be Captain Needa. He's already been confirmed for 2009.

Where?  He's been said to be coming in the next 2 years but there has been no confirmations
