Technically 14...  14 was to be the "We didn't make enough of this **** in 2010 & 2011 wave", but that seems to be on the burner since it's all mixed into other waves.

I'm going with "2012 Wave 5" at this point.

Just not knowing how retail is going to shape up this year, I went ahead and preordered a "set" as I usually do at BBTS.  I have to be honest though, I think of the set of six that Tarkin and Nikto are the two that I really want from the wave.

I might actually order this case. Only 3 figures I already have.

Is this wave 14 or 15??

On the NYCC'11 slides, Hasbro called the Malgus Wave out as 2012 Wave 3, Evazan Wave was 2012 Wave 4 and the 2011 repacks (Bespin Han, Wedge, Gammy, Bariss, etc) were being called 2012 Wave 5.  The TF'12 slides called the Tarkin Wave as Wave 6, so it gets to be Wave 15 overall.  ;)

10 TPM
11 Deleted Scene
12 Malgus
13 Evazan
14 (2011 repack wave)
15 Tarkin

The Navy trooper not being carried forward is Hasbro's message to scalpers - this is the one to get. Sure, the EU figures aren't also carried forward, but they're not army builders.

I wish they'd release the Navy Trooper as part of a deluxe with a circular command console.

Exactly

I don't know what I'm gonna do with the Imperial Navy Commander figure - it is the biggest hole in my current coverage plans for the Vintage line...

And since that wave has come and mostly gone from the on-line retailers, I'm thinking that if I haven't seen it at retail, I'm never gonna see it at retail...

He could end up being the next Wedge... but on this figure, it's an all new sculpt and a cool army builder.  Wedge was pretty much just a different head on an outdated Luke body.

That would rock.

I'd be happy to just see him re-released...  For the deluxe, I'd prefer seeing some reworking of him to a Death Squad Commander grey variation, and the console, since that's the dude in the console and all.

Leave the black ones carded and available in bulk...  I hope a revision shows he's coming back later, or they put more out at some point later in the year.  The good thing is his wave, or any of them, could wind up being absurdly easy to find.  At this point it's almost too early to panic which if any figures out of these new cases will be "rare".

The command console could have some sort electronic built in, to where you press a button, and it replays Han's conversation with the Imperial officer or something, and also a laser blast and an explosion sound.  That way Hasbro can get the "kid" factor in it.

I like Jesse's idea for if they did that, to keep the black outfits in basic cards and the gray one with the deluxe.

I like the light-up or sound idea...  or both.  For the price, you should get both.

It would be a fun display item, I would think... and a lot of people would probably want multiples.

Galactichunter has some super nice pics of this wave - at least I am pretty sure it is this wave...
