I'm getting a case of these for sure but want extras of all of them. :/

Is there a case assortment for this wave yet?

It's actually broken into 6 different case assortments with with one new figure per case. The other 11 figures are Anakin from the first wave.

Awesome! Looks like Hasbro is finally getting their case assortments RIGHT for a change!

Rumored case assortment for wave 4 (by JTA)... I'm sure it'll be confirmed at Toy Fair

Wedge Antilles [Snowspeeder Pilot] (x2)
 Darth Vader [Episode III] (x2)
 Ree-Yees (x2)
 Sergeant Doallyn (x2)
 AT-RT Driver (VC46 repack) (x2)
 Republic Trooper (VC113 repack) (x2)

Kind of disappointed that the Dagobah figures and Toryn Farr are bumped.

Not possible.  2 of each new figure?  For both waves?  What a ridiculous concept.  How are we supposed to complain about assortments if they're going to pull this two of everything new with no repacks BS!?  Cripes.

Holy crap!  You mean to tell me I MIGHT finally have a shot at getting a Bastila Shan figure?

Easy orders there.  Both cases.

Sell Bastilla off...  Eat it on the Vader I guess unless he's shockingly interesting like the Bespin Vader figure.

Hopefully this pans out. The repacks are nice idea, though Dack is a little curious. He's not a figure I think people necessarily missed, though I could be wrong. The Royal Guard is a figure I think most people would love to see, or Shae Vizla. Maybe we'll get more as we go on.

It sounds too good to be true, but my fingers are crossed! If stores kept stocking as they have (1 or 2 cases per wave per store) I think distribution problems might be solved. Time will tell...

Nice to see some HTF figures making their way back out.  To say that Bastila was scarce is a massive understatement.

The Dack reissue makes sense given the theme of the wave, which is *MOSTLY* Hoth / TESB.  The figure wasn't super scarce.  But maybe there's a Snowspeeder reissue on the way, and they want a figure to go with it?

I'd also be happy to see some of those later TVC figures get reissued.  Shae Vizla, Starkiller, the Old Republic Trooper and the Emporer's Royal Guard were all woefully under-distributed.  They could all benefit from another go-round at retail.

Dak didn't sell poorly but not like he was hard to get either being from the first TVC wave.  He's a good generic hoth Pilot though, so why not more?  I'll be keeping both mine.  He may just have been handy to sneak in with Bastilla Shan's mold maybe?  Logistical stuff sometimes seems to determine things as well... 

I'm fine with basically all those lists except the Vader...  That's something worth waiting to see what it is.

If we're reissuing hard to find ESB figures from Vintage, I would have greatly preferred Bespin Han to Dack. I too smell a Snowspeeder on the way. Otherwise kind of hard to believe I will be out looking for new stuff...it's been awhile.

Easy purchase if this is the case. Some of the duplicates I won't exactly need but I could probably trade them away for some Imperial Navy Commanders or something. I'm personally thrilled to see Dack. He and the AT-AT commander were really rare here for some bizarre reason and I missed out, and they go for like $20 plus on the secondary market now.

I do kind of question the logic of having two waves with what will appear to most people as the same figure, Wedge and Dack.  This after the dud that Pilot Biggs proved to be.
