Yeah, besides the obvious resculpts I can't think of too much else I'd want from TPM, although I'm down for any of the more unique looking aliens if Hasbro ever makes em. Loves me some aliens.

Wow, I just read the list post if that is the line up that would be great. I recently just put my Panaka on the sale block as I want to purge all POTF2-EP1 era figures. The only one I do not care for is Ratts. EP1 is so bad every time I see a Podracer makes me cringe. I have grown to love Jar-Jar so I am really glad he is getting an update. Hopefully the Darth Maul will get the true SA treatment. I am still very happy with the Evo ones I just hope they update his lightsaber. The Popsicle stick of the 90's should be put to rest now. They have got their moneys worth out of the tool as they repacked it several times and made several version of it. I use the Saga Sith training die-cast one as that looks like it belongs in the modern line.

I would like to see an updated Senator Palps instead of a Podracer.

Yeah, Palps definitely needs a refresh. I've relegated the Ep1 Senator Palpatine figure to the very back of my Senate shelf.

so is that list Jono is reporting a confirmed list of figures for that wave?

No, it's what he wanted to see come out. Aurra Sing, however, has been confirmed by Hasbro for this wave.

You are kind. I relegated him and many others from that era to the chopping block or sales list. B'gone wit dem!

Sorry to cause confusion -that was just my wishlist.

Is Aurra sing confirmed for spring 11? Hasbro said if the schedule holds we will see her next year -suggesting a late 2011 release perhaphs?

Well, unfortunately I'm lame enough to feel like a bad version is better than no version at all...though I make exceptions (POTF2 R5D4).

I'm digging the Animated version. I'll get her, and may just get another to put with my realistic collection.

"Vintage" Collection Wave 5 (aka 2011 Wave ?)

GH has a picture from CV of what appears to be an all-new "drawing board" Dr. Evazan.

For a future TVC ANH wave?

I was checking that out earlier...  I can't recall the myriad of rumors separated from the myriad of BS, but I thought it was pretty clear from the Q&A's or something solid that Evazan and Ponda Baba were both getting figures.  It's just cool that Adam May posted the concept designs for him from one of the sculptors who must've tagged along onto the show down in Orlando.

That's cool ****.

Likewise cool is Aayla Secura's figure...  She'll have ball-jointed hips I see.

Evazan, short of seeing a sculpt of course, is shaping up awesome.  Right down to a pointing-in-Luke's-chest left finger!  That's badass.

"You watch yourself!  I have the death sentence on 12 systems!"

Just sickeningly cool.  I'd buy another ANH Luke from the battlepack right this second just to put with Evazan and Baba now.

Just a reminder that Hasbro said in a recent Q&A answer that movie themed waves are dead as of Spring 2011.  There will be no "ANH wave" and even the "TPM" themed wave may be getting shuffled...

I thought it was pretty clear from the Q&A's or something solid that Evazan and Ponda Baba were both getting figures.

Yes, both Evazan and Ponda are on tap for 2011.

According to various Q&As there was going to be an ANH wave this year but then it got pushed back to 2011. Then it got split up throughout the year (and maybe even into the next if that Tarkin got pushed back to 2012 rumor is true).
