basically just what it says. I'm guessing  a ROTJ set. Simply because we had an ANH and ESB set already.  I would like to see the following 6:

Barada
Endor Rebel
Lando Skiff
R2 D2 w/serving tray
Cheif Chirpa
A Wing Pilot

chases being   Weequay ( Barada )
                    Endor Soldier Biker Scout Disguise ( Endor Rebel
                    Lando General  ( Lando Skiff )

What do you think?

It will be series 3 due to the fact that the previous two were series 1 and 2.

Yeah, we're not about to see a new set of figures carded as the next release; just not the way Medicom works.

They were both valid "ideas and opinions" sorry if you don't like them :(

I think it was worth pointing out that the last two carded figure series were re-releases of the individually boxed series 1 and 2, so the next likely carded RE-release would be the series 3 figures.  However, there has certainly been a precedent set for new unique carded figures, namely the Boba Fett series, although that was also released as individually boxed figures as well.  And we have also seen new single figures released on cards only: shadow stormtrooper, blue snowtrooper, etc., but I think these have been all, or mostly, repaints, haven't they?

So, in general, new (i.e., previously unreleased) figures on cards is still a possibility, which to me is what I think bigj was getting at.  So, who knows what's next for new carded series?  Did anyone predict a Boba Fett series?  That was a total surprise to me.  I like them but personally would have preferred the variety of a multi-character series instead.

It's not personal, so please don't take it as such.  We're just going based on what has happened in the past.  Your suggestions are fine, just not very likely is all we were saying.
