Death Star Escape Han Solo = confirmed.

I'm not expecting much more than the new Stormtrooper holster/belt slapped on the VOTC Han Solo, but maybe they'll surprise us with some spiffy feature/accessory that we're not expecting?


And, the Q&A at Mousedroid.com makes it sounds like Ponda and Evazan are NOT coming...

HASBRO RESPONSE:
We would love to tell you which ones are coming in the Fall, but need to keep them under wraps until Comic Con. We're glad you like the Cantina aliens as much as we do. Aliens are so important to Star Wars that we feel we need to include a good sampling of them in the lineup every year, and both the Cantina and Jabba's Palace are great places to look for them.
We would like to get to some key updates - Wuher, Dr. Evazon and Ponda Boba would be three priorities - but do not have any of them slotted into the lineup yet as new ones have gotten the priority. Within a couple years it's a near lock that we'll have one or more of them slotted into the lineup.

I figured the DSE Han was coming...  I'm glad too.  I liked the posed nature of the original as it captured the Han running away thing, but I'll appreciate a superarticulated one much, much more.  Sometime a new ultimate Luke would be nice, and a new belt for him too.

I think you're probably right Jeff (new belt/VOTC Han), and that's fine with me.  Anything to get that VOTC Han Solo figure out there again.  I keep saying it, but I'd really like to see that figure (along with others like VOTC Luke, Leia, and EB Chewie) get packed in either the Legends or Greatest Hits parts of the line.  I wasn't sure what else they could make for a Han from ANH (besides a Ceremonial one), but this is a nice version to get out there too.  Now if we could just get that ultimate Bespin Han (and maybe a redone Carbonite one eventually), I'd be a happy camper :).

Excellent point! I didn't think of that.

I was really hoping for Walrusman and/or Dr. Evazan resculpts in this upcoming wave, so it's a bummer to hear they aren't coming for a couple years. I'd also like to see Leesub Sirln:



If they can't give us the Tonnikas, they can AT LEAST give us this cantina babe. ;)

Hasbro may be bsing trying to keep the surprise secret(even though the lineup has been circulated) and a new Ponda may be coming sooner than that. I heard some strong professional rumblings he is indeed in the line up. He may have gotten pushed back, but I guess we will have to wait for SDCC to find out. Outside of Bom Vidam who is really left in the Cantina that would really be worth doing besides the good Dr. or Ponda, two very deserving resculpts. It's been 12 years, they are well overdue for characters that actually had screen time.

Watch them give us the bottom of the barrel scrapings like the testicle lipped Mosep & that Fly thing. I would not mind seeing that other Duro and/or a resculpt of Lak sivrak. Lak would be great so Dice Ibegon has someone to get it on with. Out of all the EU SW lore those two being lovers still cracks me up. Dogs will truly bang anything that moves.

Here are my picks for the line up now that it looks as if our two trouble makers are not coming:
___  BD# TBD - Han Solo - Death Star escape (w/ Stormtrooper belt & blaster)
___  BD# TBD - Luke skywalker - Death Star escape (w/ Stormtrooper belt & blaster)
___  BD# TBD - Jawa w/ 2X-7KPR
___  BD# TBD - Princess Leia Yavin Ceremony
___  BD# TBD - Bannis Kreeg
___  BD# TBD - Lak Sivrak
___  BD# TBD - Imperial Scanning Technician
___  BD# TBD - Darth Vader Imperial Choker (with two hands: neck bench to hoist up Antilles and the itty bitty Mottie Strangle pincer hand)

Wildcards
___  BD# TBD - Dr. Evazan
___  BD# TBD - Ponda Baba

Here's what I hope/think this wave MIGHT consist of...

___  BD# TBD - Jawa w/ 2X-7KPR
___  BD# TBD - Chewbacca - Millenium Falcon co-pilot w/headset
___  BD# TBD - Commander Praji
___  BD# TBD - Imperial Scanning Technician
___  BD# TBD - Lt. Pello Scrambas - Rebel Fleet Trooper
___  BD# TBD - Han Solo - Death Star escape (w/ Stormtrooper belt & blaster)
___  BD# TBD - Dr. Evazan
___  BD# TBD - Ponda Baba

Wow.  I'm genuinely surprised that I nailed the Han Solo.

I think I'd swap out the previous cantina aliens with these:

___  BD# TBD - Hrchek Fas Kal
___  BD# TBD - Danz Borin

Hasbro could really save some money by releasing CZ-3. They have the mold ready, though not a new figure, a new character.

Seriously. I'm surprised we haven't a CZ-3 already.

Why do we need a CZ-3?  I bought a bunch of 4's, the differences are pretty negligible to take up a figure slot

You know how the detail oriented freaks are, CZ-3 doesn't have as much crap and dirt on him as CZ-4. In fact, I bought an extra CZ-4 and cleaned him up a bit myself.

You're right though, he shouldn't take up a figure slot unless it's a BP or re-paint wave.

I was just listening to the "Collector Cast" from the Force Cast, and Derryl DePriest mentioned the Han Solo from this wave, saying that it was based off of the vintage (VOTC) mold, with a stormtrooper belt and removable chest plate.

Could be a worse figure in the wave.
