Just grand news today...  I'm really anticipating/have high hopes for the  Yavin wave...  Lots of army building and customizing potentials there, and I'm anxious to see what we may get out of these figures.  

Especially Antilles...  I'm really hoping he's a top-notch figure for building up my fleet officer army...  Troops need commanders, and Antilles is the quintessential "generic" officer.

I would love to know what other figures they'd include in a Yavin wave?  Fleet Troopers, Honor Guards, Petty Officers/mid-level officers, Pilots, Technicians, various High Ranking Officers...  There's a lot of options for Hasbro to work with, and almost all are army builders (except for the odd "main character" rehash/resculpt in their ANH outfits).

The deluxe and basic figures left for Yavin are much anticipated by myself.

I'm kind of anxious to see the Star Destroyer wave.  So far, there are only 2 figures rumoured and 1 confirmed.  Dengar and Ozzel.  I wonder what else hasbro could have in store.  What are the possibilites?

1. Zuckuss
2. Veers

I'll take a stab in the dark and say...

Due to this rumored case assortment:

1X GENERAL DODONNA
1X CAPTAIN ANTILLES
1X ADMIRAL OZZEL
1X DENGAR
2X BESPIN PRINCESS LEIA
2X CLOUD CAR PILOT
2X LOBOT
1X TIE FIGHTER PILOT
1X GOLD LEADER

The Star Destroyer Wave is more of an ESB Wave with

Cloud Car Pilot
Bespin Leia
Lobot
Dengar
Ozzel

Being the 5 figures

Which is too bad because I think the could of had an awesome Bespin Wave with something like

Leia
Cloud Car Pilot
Lobot
Ice Cream Maker Guy
Bespin Guard (running change on the ethnicity)

I think OCB is on to something.  Although it would seem Hasbro will pass up a perfect opportunity to release the CD Rom Bespin Vader from a few years back.

I think OCB is on to something.  Although it would seem Hasbro will pass up a perfect opportunity to release the CD Rom Bespin Vader from a few years back.

Well, here's hoping OCB is wrong about not having a Bespin wave.   Even with Wol Cabasshite being made in the Ultra set, I doubt Ice Cream Maker Guy would be a likely candidate for a Bespin wave.  So, combining Spuffy and OCB's idea, I'm hoping there is a Bespin wave with the following:

Bespin Gown Leia
Cloud Car Pilot
Lobot
CD Rom Bespin Vader
Bespin Guard (running change on the ethnicity)

Which not only includes some (unconfirmed) figures that are coming out in 2004, but the Vader adds something that Hasbro has already worked on and would likely be coming in the future anyway.

See the thing that doesn't quite fit is the new Dagobah R2-D2, he's not in this first case assortment but is in this one

84715 00G (DATE TBA)

1X GOLD LEADER
1X TIE FIGHTER PILOT
1X GENERAL DODONNA
1X ENDOR HAN SOLO
2X SLY MOORE
2X CORUSCANT PABLO JILL
2X WOOKIE SENATOR
1X R2-D2 (DAGOBAH)
1X CLOUD CAR PILOT


Which is a combo Coruscant/ESB Wave with Endor Han thrown in, methinks they may be abandoning this Wave concept arleady which sucks :-\

Bespin Gown Leia
Cloud Car Pilot
Lobot
CD Rom Bespin Vader

I think these are the most likely of the bunch for a Bespin wave.  Hasbro has stated that the themed waves would include approximately 4 figures, and that's 4 right there.

A Bespin wave certainly wouldn't seem out of place.  Most of the themed waves for 2004 are slated to be from the original trilogy.  Thus far with only five waves officially announced, I think a Bespin wave is very likely.

As for the Star Destroyer wave, it's entirely possible that Dengar isn't the only Bounty Hunter in the wave.  4-LOM has been silently calling for a resculpt.  That POTF2 figure dates back to aroun1997, I believe.  I also recall seeing a rumor of a resculpted Imperial Naval Trooper.

All I can say beyond this is wait.  We'll probably find out more beyond wave 5 from Toy Fair in February.
