Been seeing the Dagobah X-Wing set around, now with complete cardboard swamp muck covering the entire ship.....I don't quite remember mine having that.

I saw this packaging variant today as well. I actually saw both versions were on the shelf which is why it caught my eye.

No pics yet, but there is a new wave up for pre-order at EE:

- Ahsoka & Goldie
- Kit Fisto & General Grevous
- Clone ARF Trooper & Yoda
- Lt. Thire & IG-86 Assasin Droid

These should be the next wave after the OT wave (with Ackbar/Nien, etc) that is kicking off the Fall.

Is the Yoda the same sculpt as all the other ones that have been released so far?

No idea... no pics yet.  :(

If I had to guess, I'd say "new" as all the CW themed figures they have done so far have been new sculpts.

Hasbro also snuck this tidbit into a Q&A reply for Galactic Hunter: 

"We have a Galactic Heroes multi-pack lined up for the Medal Ceremony..."

I noticed that as well, kind of cool I guess.  I'm wondering what the pack will contain, since we usually only get a couple "new" figures per pack.  A new Luke most likely, and possibly Leia as well, with repacks of Han, Chewie, Dodonna, and maybe the droids or something.  It is neat that we see stuff like this in the GH line though, it has really become a pretty deep lineup overall there.  I hope we see a Rebo band pack sometime soon.

I dunno, the new 8-packs they've been revealing have been having about 2 new figures PLUS as many as 2 more repaints/ minor retools.  Sure, we can grimly count on super useless 3PO, R2, and Chewie... but that leaves 5 interesting slots.  I'll keep my fingers crossed for all new Luke and Leia, Han with added medal, and Dodonna (many won't be sad to see him) - leaving still one more spot for MAYBE an "honor guard" repaint of the upcoming fleet trooper.

Is this new? It's coming on a single card later this year.

Yes, that Grievous is the new CW Grievous sculpt.  In addition to the single card version, he is also supposed to be coming this Fall in a 2-pack with Kit Fisto.

Huh, someone just pointed this out to me today - it looks like there might be a Jabba's Band GH Cinema Scene set this Fall.

I guess I missed the news a few weeks ago (and maybe other people did too since I haven't seen anyone mention it here).  Man, that would be a nifty cool way to get Jabba out there again... and I'm totally digging the Max Rebo figure.  I hope it turns out to be legit! :)

I'm pretty much done with the 2packs, but Rebo looks too good to pass up and I'm a sucker for the cinema scene packaging.  Will be interesting to see who's included in the other set - if there is one.

I must have missed that too, that is the first I've heard of/seen this.  You know, I was just thinking the other day which other Galactic Heroes I'd like to see from the OT (which are the only ones we're buying anymore at our house for the most part), and the Rebo Band was the first that came to mind.  I hope it is legit as well.  Getting Max Rebo and Ackbar in the same year is great :).

I got a notice from BBTS as well, but for some reason I only got the Jawa/R2 pack in my loot - hopefully the others will follow too.

The newest sets (Jawas/R2, Ackbar/Nien Nunb) are out there.  I found them at Target today!
