I echo everyone's sentiments above.  What really impresses me is next year, Hasbro seems to be sweeping up lots of characters we've wanted for a long time.  If the lists are accurate, nearly every Luke will be available.  All the Rebel generals - once pipe dreams - are done in one year.  Ewoks!  The Cabbeshite guy!  R-3PO!  The Dignitaries!  It amazes.   This past year they finished off the Jedi Council (EP1 style).   Does anyone else think there isn't much left to do?

Sure there is plenty left to do but mostly background type figures.  I still want a Hermi Odle, Gotal, Yarna.  Stuff like that.  Yes, after this year my want list will have taken a serious hit!

If they make one, will the other be soon to follow?  Hmmm...  Then again, there's no basis for this since only the one Duros was made too, but I guess I was thinking "Dignitary" or "Ach Med Beqq" maybe.

Although this isn't for sure, and maybe someone else can confirm this (I don't have my Insider yet)...but according to SSG forum member Battle Droid, the latest Insider has confirmation of TRU exclusive Jedi Council sets, as well as Basic Wave 6: Battle of Endor.  Here is the text from his post:

From, Star Wars Insider #73.

The Jedi Council sets will continue at ToysRus so we'll have the entire Council Scene, including the center piece.

The first set will include Yoda, Qui-Gon-Jinn, and Ki-Adi Mundi.

Basic Wave 6: The Battle of Endor Wave

Han Solo as AT-ST Driver.
General Madine.
General Lando Calrissian.

Hopefully this is true, I've really been wanting a new Endor Han since 2002's poor offering.  Hopefully they make it the "ultimate"-ish Han, and not specific with only the AT-ST Helmet and gloves.  It would be nice if it was a good Endor Han with his removable trench, the helmet, etc.  Also good to see Madine and a new General Lando if this is true.  The council sets also sound great, it would be nice to "complete the circle".  I don't have my Insider yet (I think it gets to subscribers on Dec. 26 according to the official site?).  Anyways, until then, take it with a grain of salt, but hopefully it turns out to be true.

I've always thought that Hasbro would give us the complete Jedi Council after giving us the first two, especially since their were many more "seated" Jedi that they needed to do, even if we bought multiples of the first two sets to complete the circle of chairs.  But I admit that I've been a little more worried about that of late, since those Screen Scene sets are really warming the shelves in mass abundance around here now.

So it sounds like the remaining ones are going to be TRU exclusives.  That kinda blows, since they charge $2 more than Target does on them...  Oh well, I'd rather pay a little more than not get them at all!  I really hope they make sure to get that center piece of the floor in there somewhere too, along with a nice outer wall w/ windows cardboard display of some type.  I would think that Obi-Wan, Qui-Gonn, and young Anakin would fit well with the center piece of the floor, but it sounds like Qui's on tap for a regular set.  I wonder if they'll make him able to sit down or not.  Doesn't really seem necessary with him, though I certainly wouldn't mind.  Dumb that Hasbro put out a couple of standing Jedi in the previous two sets though (Depa Billaba & Even Piell), that will never be able to sit down either.  What the hell's up with that?!?

Looking forward to the three Endor fellas there too, of course.  Madine's a no-brainer, and one of the few vintage holdouts.  General Lando's one of the Top 5 for most needed rescuplts, so that's a welcome addition.  AT-ST Han sounds cool too.  An Endor Han had already been rumored, so hopefully Brian's guessing is accurate - that they give us a great Endor Han, with an AT-ST helmet to toss on as an added accessory.

Rumors abound that the Endor wave will go beyond these three of course, to include Luke, Leia, Ewok(s), Ackbar, and maybe a couple others.  God, next year is going to be absolutely AMAZING for Original Trilogy enthusiasts.  Sounds like Hasbro's gonna redo half of the previous line.  Cool by me...   8)

Qui-Gon give me hope we're going to see a new E1 Obi or possibly even a E2 robed Obi.  Both of those are overdue.  I don't know about Han At-St.  If they throw the helmet in with a trench coat, ok, but this was never a figure I really wanted.

What's encouraging about Qui-Gon being listed is this:  it doesn't leave a Council member seatless.  We could get a standing robed EI Obi-Wan, as well as EII standing versions of Obi-Wan and Anakin.  Think of it like this:

EI Qui-Gon with Yoda & Ki-Adi Mundi
EI Obi-Wan with Plo Koon & Eeth Koth
EII Anakin with seated Shaak Ti &  Adi Gallia
EII Obi-Wan with seated Coleman Trebor & Saesee Tiin
