I'm a little disappointed at the apparent loss of some nice AOTC figures (Owen, Beru, "ultimate" Kenobi) - but the trade off of having all the OT-goodness should make it well worth it. Plus, I think the current figure count for next year (48) is about perfect. Of course, there is the Clone Wars line alongside it, which makes it much larger - but if there was just 48 basic figures for the Star Wars line in any given year, I think it would be much easier to keep up (and then throw in battle packs, evolutions, vehicles, etc.)
Anyways, the figure plan looks pretty good to me. Its just nice seeing a plan of a wave from Star Wars, a wave from Empire, and a wave from Jedi right in a row like that. I think from Q and A confirmations and hints, we might be able to start piecing some of these waves together a little bit. Speaking of which, isn't it about time to start seeing some pics leaked of something beyond the first ANH wave? Hopefully before too long we'll get a bit of a look.
