I'm wagering they'll make use of the new dome sculpt...  I'd not be shocked to see some of the tougher BAD's to track down making some kind of reappearance.

Hopefully they announce what some of the BADs are going to be.  I am kind of hoping for a new EV-9D9.    She seems like a good canidate for this.  Although I would have rather seen it on a vinty card.

If they decide to do this with the Clone Wars line, there are a ton of good candidates. Personally, I want my Betty Droid, dammit.  ;D

I really want to be done after the vintage collection, i hope this doesnt pull me back in. The 3 figures shown dont excite me yet, so far still good.

I've given up on having "one of each" this year, as there were many new figures that were hard to get, that I really had no connection to.  Such as any video game or novel character.  Now, if I saw them in retail, I'd buy them.  Bust since I've been going to ebay and paying 12-15 a fig, I'm only buying what I really want.  While I feel good being in control of what I purchase, it's a bad sign for Hasbro when a total die-hard like myself gives up.

I'm hoping for BAD's of...

-EV9D9
-8D8 (got a lot of parts right?)
-Maybe HK47 re-release as he was tough to get for many, and very popular
-New Astromech Domes
-Any straggler astromechs from any of the 6 films
-The Red/White/Blue R3 from Hoth (I like it but the one they have has a permanent 3rd leg)
-Betty Droid
-Wouldn't Guri be cool to come out in this line?  Weirder choice but if her pegs were actually wiring sculpts, that'd be neat I think.
-Some more 3PO protocol droid colors...  white red and gold are it that we have right?  I'd be ok with more.

I'd also like to see some revisited stuff like the CZ droids or something.  EU Droids always have my attention too.  I just love droids, and the entire BAD concept of getting a figure if you buy the whole wave.  It lessens the sting, and honestly, I'd rather get something out of the purchase other than a pretty cardback.  Vintage has been real, and it's been fun, but it hasn't been real fun sometimes, and so I'm ready for a slight change in bang for my buck.

Oh...  Forgot about him.  Not a bad choice.  Maybe a rebranded name and call him the Home One 2-1B guy?

C-3PO is desperately needed using the b.a.d. mold.

I sort of agree CHEWIE...  I'd not turn it down anyway, espeically (again) with "wire" plugs for the limbs...  Could be neat.

But my bigger issue is 3PO is definitely "chromed" and so the dull sheen of the plastic used for the BAD figures would be a little downer.  I like a chromey shiney 3PO even if they dirty him up with a dirty paintjob.  I like seeing that shine underneath because that's how he is.

Now, do they have it in their power to make a more articulated 3PO?  I think so.  Even BAD style.  I don't think they would though and he'd wind up as just a dull coated one using the current mold...  I'm kind of ok with the removable panels one from the first vintage wave then...  But I'd probably be happy to get a 3PO using the existing mold too.  Not knowing what it's replacing and all.  It's a very sharp sculpt for sure.

Hoping for T3-M4 myself to complete the droid duo from KOTOR. A man can dream.

Agreed, and mostly EV-9D9 if I'm not mistaken, just black and silver...  An ideal choice being obscure and could kill 2 birds with 1 stone.
