I wanted to ask this at C6 but did not find anyone at the GG booth who could answer such questions. Has GG given any indication of doing a Jumbo Jedi Luke? It's the only figure I truly would like to buy but outside of Gamorrean Guard it doesn't look like they are planning to do any ROTJ figures for a while.

I would not expect to see many ROTJ figures in the near future.  They seem to be following fairly close to the original launch order outside of the Gammorean.  I would expect to see more of the early Empire figures coming in the next wave.  They also have about seven or eight figures in pre-order right now, so even if they announced something today, we're probably at least six to nine months away from seeing it.

+1  Any idea who is coming out next and when?  My Greedo has been in stock for a month now, but waiting on another GG figure to come in stock for shipping.   :P

According to the latest email just the Gam Guard.  I thought everyone through Yoda was supposed to be out by the end of the year.  Greedo is the last one I have too

At least GG is extending the PGM until they can fulfill their orders.  :P

Have they announced any new additions to this line recently? I preordered Yoda as soon as he was announced, which will be my first figure from this line.

Thanks in advance!

I think the only one to come after that was Rocket Firing Fett.  You can view all of the pre-orders on their webpage.

Will the AT-AT Driver be in full battle gear, or will he be in street clothes?

I'd love to be getting these, especially the bounty hunters and cantina trio...it's just the cost.
