Thanks guys!

The internal lists are basically lists of confirmed, possibles and anything else...

I can tell you that Hem Dazon is looking to be a definite addition to our collections. I think much of what lies in the balance is the fate of future Screen Scenes.

Hasbro has some ideas brewing that could lead into more of them... though if figures do not see the light in that venue then we'll see some normal carded for sure.

I have also been told a revisit to EU could be a possibility depending on what we see for interest on Clone Wars.

Hasbro basically is watching the market more carefully than they ever have.

I wish I could tell you what the big announcement was tomorrow... but honestly I have no clue whatsoever.
I'm just as anxious...

There is supposedly already a mock up for the Jedi Master points promo... and we should see that soon  :)
Gotta love me or leave me alone....

Thanks for the info, Jimmy.  I think Screen Scenes are going to be the avenue by which Hasbro delivers a lot of 'boring' minor background characters in the future.  The Cantina, Jabba's Palace, The Pod Race, the Arena, Hoth, all of these are full of characters we want.

The list that was posted a few days ago is pretty accurate. There are some other items not listed that I have heard rumored but as of right now cannot confirm.

If I find out some things next week while at GenCon. I will be able to meet up and talk with a few people.  I will be sure to let you all know. I will also be at Wizards in Chicago in August.

The rumored Wampa's Cave Scene appears to have surfaced in that Japanese pic, and so has the long rumored Hoth Rebel Soldier (both he and the recent Snowtrooper were on lists back in 2000, weren't they?).

Bring us good info, Boba Binks.   ;D

Well, some of the things that I have heard rumors for now have pictures thanks to a posting over at RebelScum.






Though not all of what I have heard about is shown lets just say that Jabba is fairly nice. I am happy with it.

Boba, I hope you're right on the Jabba. I'm a little worried to hear about him being part of a 10.99 deluxe line. I've always assumed to do ROTJ Jabba properly was at least a $20 Deluxe Beast-style proposition.

Not bad for a rumour list.  From the most recent rumor list, here are the figures that we can look forward to.

Ayy Vida (Episode II)
Bail Organa (Episode II)

Captain Antilles (Fan Choice #5 Winner Episode IV)
Clone Trooper (Super Articulated Episode II)
McQuarrie Stormtrooper (Fan's Choice #4)
Elan Sleazebaggano (Episode II)
General Jan Dodonna (Episode IV)
General Rieekan (Episode V)
Imperial Dignitary #1 (Episode VI)
Imperial Dignitary #2 (Episode VI)
Luke Skywalker (Jabba's Palace, Episode VI)
Obi-Wan Kenobi (Nightclub Episode II)
Padme Amidala (Tatooine Episode II)
Passel Argente (Episode II)



These are the figures from the list which are yet to be confirmed.


Bib Fortuna (Resculpt, Episode VI)
C-3PO (Jabba's Palace or Ewok Deity Episode VI)
Chief Chirpa (Episode VI)
Cloud Car Pilot (Episode V)
General Madine (Episode VI)
Jocasta Nu (Episode II)
Princess Leia (Bespin Episode V)
Stass Allie (Jedi Knight Episode II)
Weequay (Episode VI)

With 4 of 7 deluxe figures shown, i'm hoping for Hermi Odle. Also from Jabba's Palace I want Gargan.

Themed Waves: Let The Speculation Begin!
« Reply #28 on: July 19, 2003, 04:53 AM »
Here is some guess work on my part using what we know and also what's shown up on some rumor lists.  I've only done up to six waves, and no PT ones, although I'm awfully tempted.  Anyways, here goes:

Hoth: Luke, Rebel Trooper, R3-PO, Riekken, Wampa

Tatooine: ROTJ Luke, C3-PO & Escape Pod

Jabba’s Palace: Weequay, Bib Fortuna, Bartender R2, Jabba w/ Dais
 
Yavin: General Dodonna, Captain Antillies, Wedge, Rebel Trooper in Watch Tower

Star Destroyer: Dengar, Ozzel or Veers, Vader in Meditation Chamber

Speculation Goodness:

Bespin: Leia Bespin Gown, Cloud Car Pilot, Vader (from POTJ CD-ROM), Han in Torture Rack

For the PT waves, I'd love to see a focus on the Jedi (either in the Arena or in the Temple), as well as the Senate.  I think a Senate pod car would be perfect for the new deluxe pieces.   Hmm...

Galactic Senate: Senator Amidala (E2), Toonbuck Tora, Dorme  ;D and Senate Car w/ Wookie Senator?

Now let's hear your guys thoughts/wishes/expectations.

I'd like to see a wave based on the Episode I Naboo Royal Starship.
Padme (or would it be Sabe?) in an outfit Hasbro hasn't made yet.

Some resculpted Naboo guards, or even rereleased ones. Maybe different head sculpts like the Imperial Officer.

And Handmaidens in those funny orange gowns, cause we've been asking for those.

I think Hasbro woul probably avoid an entire Episode I-themed wave like the plague, but I'd like to see it.
don't you know there ain't no devil, there's just God when he's drunk
