The 18 figures will be interesting, especially if the individual cases pans out. It's way too many figures for a single wave, and seems aimed at an online market which is better able to manage this kind of inventory as opposed to retail. I'd love to speculate on the figures but can't think of much that would truly excite me. This recent group with Toryn Farr and the Snowtrooper Commander kind of cleans house for me personally. I imagine this group of 18 will heavily favor ROTJ, or lean that way, as Hasbro gears up for EPVII.

I think Vader was there too.  Leia is the only new name.

Just read JTA's rumored list of the wave of 18 for this fall and... I guess not what I was expecting, or I should say, I don't need new underwear.

It's a cool list.  But really, until we start to actually see something from SDCC?  I have to reserve my judgement.  There's nothing that pops out and says "WOW"!  Mosep is a nice point on the list.  But it seems like this list covers a lot of ground that's already been covered numerous times before.

My sentiments exactly. I'm more excited about some of the re-releases.

Yeah, the problem with making wild underwear claims is that it's just too easy to fall short of that mark and then look silly.  :P

Mosep does seem like a cool choice, but outside of that it's not a whole lot that blows the mind.

Did we really need another TCW-themed Anakin? I don't see how this merits a slot, even if just a repack. There's really not a lot of new territory to mine there outside of the Zygerian Slaver outfit, which is waaay to much to hope for at this point.

I guess Wolffe will be based on his later Clone Wars appearances?

I'm guessing the Clone Commanders are just love action renditions of their animated counterparts. I'd like to see Wolffe in his bridge officer uniform.  And I'm thinking Commander Thorne is one of the Shock Trooper officers.  I had to look up Commander Doom to realize that he was in the netflix exclusive episodes.

So... where's Han Solo at?  Not seeing the rumored Hoth Han re-do in these new rumor lists. >:(

Oh, so Han's relegated to the "stan" approved rumor lists...  great.  Won't hold my breath waiting then.   ::)

Yeah... everyone is getting all excited about prospective names on a list, but when eveyone sees that they've turned out like Yoda and Dagobah Luke did, they'll go right back to hating everything again. :P ;)

HHHHAAAAASSSSSSSBBBBBLLLLOOOOOOOOWWWWWW!!!!!!!

Mosep is going to have unacceptable paint apps too.  Sweet.

Lol @ the Han/"Stan List" demotion.  It's in the same parking lot that holds everyone else's dreams.  I think that's become a large garage now.  I saw a new Y-Wing in it last week.

The more I think about these lists the more I wonder if a lot of these rumored figures are possibly on the way just for the heck of it... take Boushh Leia for example. The last version we got was near-perfect, and while I know there can be improvements to it, I'm thinking it's more of a case of Hasbro saying "we haven't had a Boushh in circulation in almost a decade, let's make a new one."

These rumor lists sound way too good to be true. Including the previously revealed Toryn Far and Snowspeeder Wedge waves, that would mean 40 or so figures will be hitting in the next six months. I don't foresee that happening at all. Of course if all of these figures really are coming out, I doubt they will be available anywhere except online retailers.

Part of me hopes these lists are legit though, as I would love to get the Clone Wars clone figures. I recall two were announced at Toy Fair (Doom and Wolffe) but Thorn and finally getting Rex would be a sweet bonus.
