That would be awesome to see more figures from the micro-series, even if it's just that one. I wouldn't be surprised if we saw Fordo in this wave.

Why not? They did say it wouldn't be a themed wave.

I want Jorus C'baoth made.  Other than that, no preference.

I'm curious on which version of the Solo twins we'll get?  Heir to the Empire series babies? (probably not) NJO Teenagers?  Legacy of the Force Adults?

I donīt know if this could be possible, but in Battlefront II we have generic troopers who could be released as EU characters, for example the rebel vanguard trooper beidge uniform with bazuka, the female sniper in commando outfit, the imperial officer who wears a uniform similar to Veers At At commander gear, the heavy imperial sandtrooper with bazuka. From Battlefront series (OT characters) we only have TSC rebel vanguard (afro) and TLC imperial engineer.

I find some of the BF characters to be a bit on the lame side...  A generic Officer in battle gear would be interesting simply because it's just a generic version of Veers, more or less.  I like the Imp. ENgineer, but only because I've BS'd them into "Imperial Combat Engineers", and with a DS Trooper helmet or black kepi hat, they look sharp as guys clearing obstacles for the troops or doing demo work... 

The Vanguard is really not a cool figure to me though...  Same as some of the other characters like the bulky Sandtrooper.  Battlefront's a fun game but I've sort of written most of it out of my mind as far as EU goes.  Just not my cup of tea I guess.  I'm not a big fan of anything Marvel either though...  I really never liked the original comics much.

I think the Rebel Smuggler and the female Rebel Marksman from Battlefront II would be cool figures. I've always wanted more stuff from the Battlefront games, especially some of the vehicles.

When asked about this by SSG back in December Hasbro said:

SSG: You said in a recent answer that the Solo twins, while difficult to do because of limited visual references, were high on your wish list. Hypothetically speaking, if you were to make these long-request characters, which versions would you do? Young Jedi Knights (there's a good picture of them in the recent Jedi vs. Sith guide), NJO-era Jedi Knights (probably the most requested versions, and based on Japanese cover art which is probably the largest body of visual reference for these characters and was even used by the Official Site as its EU menu before the redesign) or Legacy of the Force-era (with the added advantage that an alternate head and lightsaber and removable cape would allow you to do Jacen and Caedus as one figure)?

Hasbro: If we did them, hypothetically speaking, it would be the New Jedi Order-era, based on the Japanese cover art. This would be the most solid selection for the exact reasons you have pointed out - prevalence and familiarity with the character images. If we ever did Caedus, it would have to be new sculpt since the NJO-version would not work for a retrofit.

Thanx for digging that up Corax.  Although now I think they might look like Anime figures for some reason!   :D

I think that Concept AOTC Anakin would make a decent Darth Caedus.

No problem Matt and I totally agree about Concept Anakin working for Caedus.  If I could find a decent match for the right arm and replace it I would make my own :)

Thanks Corax for that question...  That seems to sum up who the Jacen/Jaina are likely to wind up being.  I'm not overly familiar with NJO EU, but I'm still geeked to get them regardless.

The fact that they got Jabba,s droid in there makes this wave so much cooler. An OTC character in a EU wave. Great way to get the haters to buy. Love this wave I see my buying these thrice over.
