AT-RT Driver I'd sneak in.  He's the figure from that Wave 6 that sells out, every time, and so I'd add him.  Fleet Trooper, Gammie...  Maybe Fordo, but I think he'll cool down as more 7 ships.

Zam is actually the AOTC wave figure I see the most, sadly.  I think she's outstanding, and was my most wanted figure.  I'd say Anakin Peasant is the one that's a real bitch to find out of that wave, and I'd repack him because he's great.

Wedge for sure.  Gammy.  Zam is a good one - never seen her in stores.  AT-RT Driver.  Bespin Han (we'll see).

Gammy and the RFT for sure, and I'd also say Echo base Trooper, Bastilla and Ponda as well since they're one per case with a bunch of repacks. I can't imagine they'll be easy to track down.

Getting conformation on a re-packed Wedge is big relief. Him and the Gammorian Guard are about the big ones for me.

Wedge, G Guard, anything from Wave 4 (which I've never seen in stores) and anything from Waves 6 and beyond

I think including anything beyond wave 6 is a little premature yet as stores (Target) are still in process of doing updates, but I think these would be welcome again

1. Wedge
2. Zam Wesell
3. Gamorrean Guard
4. Mace
5. Padme or Anakin (peasant)

Wave 3:
-Gammie Guard

Wave 4:
-Anakin Outlander Disguise...  Maybe Zam, but I see Zam a lot here, and hardly saw Ani, so regionally there's some lopsidedness there.

Wave 5:
-NOTHING.  I saw this wave plenty, and it's such a dismal wave that I hope they truly don't put more of it out.

Wave 6:
-AT-RT Driver
-Fi Ech Sich (whatever...  I've hardly seen him or the ATRT Driver anywhere but TRU)

I'm declaring the AOTC Clone a pegwarmer here.  I saw no less than 12 at each TRU I visited over the weekend, and every Target had 2 or 3 at least.

Wave 7:
-Fleet Trooper
-Clone Commander

Beyond that, I've honestly seen everything between WM and Target in some quantity.  Not to say I wouldn't mind one here or there that I didn't list, I just would hate to see 2012 roll around and them saturate the market with the figures everyone is claiming they can't find.  I think it's a pretty thin line right now.

All I can safely say is that I'd be glad to not see a plain white clone from any movie for a little while.  Not forever mind you, just for a little while.  The other army builders seem to be the ones hurting, except the Senate Guard...  Lots and lots of Senate Guards. :)  Good figure though.

I hope that Rebel Fleet trooper ships for a long, long time. It's really the only army builder I care about right now.

Though I hope the Hoth Rebel finds it's way onto a card very soon (he was in the Vintage 3-pack).

A vinty Hoth Rebel would indeed be nice for the card at least.  That scarfed Trooper is still popular too.

i wouldn't mind at all if they did a few running changes on the Fleet Trooper, change up the headsculpt or something to mix it up a bit.

That'd certainly be nice...  And at SDCC Hasbro did mention that they'd like to do battlepacks in the future like the, I believe it was, the Naboo Battle one I thought...  Like army building being at the heart of it or something.  I could've misread whatever it was that I saw that, but I think that was the mention.

Be neat to see more actual "Battles" make it into Battlepacks or boxed sets.  2 Fleet Trooper variants and 2 Stormtroopers?  I think i'd probably pick up one or two of those.  :-X
