Anyone else think it's time to start naming the assortments instead of using wave #'s?   ???

Welp, I was kind of excited until I saw some of those pictures. Padawan Anakin? Really? Regular version is in desperate need of an upgrade. Soft good KKK hood on Sidious?

I like all of the background character figs though...

Doesn't seem like Sidious should have a lightsaber for this offering.  I understand the reasoning, but it's just not screen accurate.

Can't wait to see the high-res images of the presentation later today.  Camera phone pix from whoever uploaded to the Official Site only show so much.

The more I think about this wave, the more I'm amazed with one omission...  #nojarjar?

Even with as much vitriol as he gets, I would have probably bought a new SA Vintage carded JarJar...  :-[

It took 20 years for people to come around with the Ewoks.  Jar Jar's got another decade before he's out of the doghouse.

I am surprised Jar Jar isn't in this. It would have been done and over with him. Him and Tatooine Anakin is still MIA.

Yeah - I would have thought that an updated Jar Jar and Anakin in the outfit he wears for most of his time in the movie were sure things for this wave.

Oh well...  :-\

Looking forward to seeing some clearer pics (or presentation slides) of these later on, but initially they look pretty nice.  I'm actually glad to see a new 'lil Anakin as well, but also wish it was the more regular version.  Plus, another Padme.  If they would have put out a redone Jar Jar, I think I'd be pretty happy with the TPM lineup at that point.  I'm actually a little surprised at how much TPM product they're putting out.  I understand the movie re-release and all that...and a lot of it looks nice....but part of the reason we haven't seen TPM stuff for so long (for the most part) is because it doesn't seem very popular and/or sell well.  Plus, the movie is probably only going to be in theaters for a short time (similar - or shorter - than when the SEs came out), so hopefully they don't overdo it either.

They make the least needed Sidious upgrade.

Pit droid bonus with Quadrinaros and Rats but we are still getting a single pack Battle Droid.  :( Not surprised. Might ruin the VOTC asthetics to put two in there.

Happy to see a new Nemoidian.

At least 12x new figures, plus the exclusive wave at Walmart and the exclusive BPs at TRU and rumors of Ep1 vehicle re-releases and a NEW vehicle (Naboo Starfighter).  Plus whatever else they want to show us at NYCC in October.

I think it is safe to say they will overdo it... watch them get everything fixed this Fall only to screw it up with an overload of TPM. (history really does repeat itself! :P)

EP1 Sidious didn't needed to be updated, he does nothing in the movie. 1999 version is still a great sculpt.  The emperor from ROTJ needs the update

A neat mix, I'm very interested to see final figures, close-up pics, etc.

The Jar Jar omission is indeed odd though, especially since they're probably banking on the movie coming out and appealing to kids again.  I too would welcome a definitive Jar Jar...  One that could end all future Jar Jars except a Senate one, maybe.
