Hasbro dosen't like the powerful Imperials I think,six years to make a new emperor,and seven years to make the second most powerful imperial.

I wish they would make more Imperial figures!  They're my favorites!

Well it sounds like some good stuff could be coming our way.  God I hope that Whipid and Hermi Odles comes through.  I've wanted those two for awhile now.

Thanks for the posts everyone, it is a lot of fun speculating/hearing what might be coming next year.  I really think that 2004 is going to be a tremendous year for Star Wars collectors, from what we have seen and heard so far.  I was curious, in case I missed it, but packaged images of the Concept Stormie/Bail Organa, Tatooine Padme, Dignitary, Club Obi, Elan Sleazebaggano, etc...and the rest of the 2003 figures have not shown up yet have they?  I guess I don't mind if they hold off a little bit longer, I still have some catching up to do, but I was just curious.  That is the next wave isn't it?

Just wanted to point out a couple of things and give another pat on the back to you Jimmy...

Ever notice what Rebelscum has on their future release list?

Rumor List
  Bib Fortuna
  C-3PO (Jabba's Palace)
  Chief Chirpa
  Cloud Car Pilot
  General Crix Madine
  Jocasta Nu
  Princess Leia (Bespin Gown)
  Stass Allie (Jedi Knight)
  Weequay

Is the same one you posted over at the TF...

Then a week or so ago Adam at GH posts some of the same figures on his list

Hmmm...no those JD faithful know where things are and what is what...maybe these guys should check with their "source" again

But what was more interesting was that Hasbro is supposedly watching the sales closely on the CW three packs. Some talk is if these are enough of a hit they could spawn off into Classic territory.

Well, if this is true, hopefully Hasbro will look at the sales of the Clonetrooper, Jedi, and Separatist Droid 3-packs, and NOT at the massive overabundance of those damned Destroyer Droid Launcher 3-packs.  Hasbro should just chalk that one up to their own incredible stupidy as far as case breakdowns go!  >:(  I've seen TONS of these at all my local stores, yet NONE of the other 3 sets!

I would absolutely LOVE some classic trilogy sets like this.  It's something that Hasbro should've done a LONG, LONG time ago.  Sure-fire seller!

As for other future waves, now that we've got that great R1 droid on the way, I'd love to see a Purchase of the Droids themed wave, complete with a newly sculpted Uncle Owen, R5-D4, and Jawa, along with the LIN Mining droid, and the orange Treadwell droid with all the arms.  What a great diorama that will eventually make when Hasbro gets with the program and hooks us up with that Sandcrawler already!!  ::)

Obviously a Cantina themed wave is a total no-brainer as far as what we'd all love to see.  Hem Dazon, Bom Vimdin, Gotal, Dannik, Brainiac, Givins, etc.

The possibilities are endless.  Just make them all!

I am sorry to break it to you Dark_Count_Fatty, but i dont think they will do a Tarkin yet, since he will be appearing in EP3, they will probably bring him out as one of the first figures in the waves of the EP3 line.  You can count on seeing him on the pegs in April 2005, i guaruntee you that.  Let's hope he is not a peg-warmer!

Hey...

Yeah I saw these from my friend in HK.
Once in a bit he'll throw up some pics on a personal web space for a few minutes that he'll send me access to.

This was the same way I got to see a third Imperial Dig that has yet to be shown or announced by Hasbro.

The pics are protected so there's no way to save them... well unless I go other routes... but he's a friend and I appreciate the fact he lets me in on them as is...


I have actually contemplated getting back into the "game" (i.e. reporting news on a site again) though really not 100% sure on this... If that happens maybe I'll do some talking to see what I can get out there and how early...

Gotta love me or leave me alone....

Ok Jimmy, sounds good.  I was hoping you meant a website.  My mistake.
