    2" Unleashed Battle Packs:

    These semi-controversial packs are coming back with new assortments for the 30th anniversary. Arguably, the small-scale Unleashed figures are one of Hasbro's most popular new lines of 2006, and since it's foolish to fix what's not broken, we can expect the following new sets:


    ANH: Commanders
    ANH: Rebel Blockade Troopers
    ANH: Imperial Stormtroopers
    ANH: Luke Skywalker & The Droids
    ANH: Cantina Encounter
    ANH: Imperial Sandtroopers
    ANH: Tusken Raiders
    ANH: Jawas & Droids



    30th Anniversary Battle Packs:

    Not unlike the previous Battle Packs, the 2007 assortments will feature four figures and a few small related accessories, and will utilize retools, repaints, and maybe even a new sculpt or two. Of the ten new sets scheduled, you can expect to see the following in 2007:


    TPM: The Battle Of Theed
    AOTC: The Battle of Geonosis
    TCW: Ambush On Ilum
    ROTS: The Attempted Arrest Of Chancellor Palpatine
    ANH: The Capture of Tantive IV
    TESB: Jedi Training On Dagobah
    ROTJ: Battle At The Pit Of Carkoon



    30th Anniversary Showcase Poster Packs:

    These action figure four packs will feature 8 x 11" movie poster replicas, and will include a special base to showcase the figures and posters. Currently we can expect six of these poster packs in 2007, but if the line is successful, we will likely see more. Don 't hold your breath for new sculpts though?


    3 3/4" Basic Figures:

    Saving the most exciting for last, let us look at what Hasbro plans on releasing for everyone's meat and potatoes Star Wars collectibles. Again we can expect figures to be package on a fresh card design, and now with pack in coins. Hopefully the addition of the coins will prove more successful than they were for Kenner back in the old days, when the line was petering out. While there are some exciting new characters, we can expect some rehashed and retooled figures to spruce the line a bit, which is great for new collectors.


    Wave 1: ROTS
    Galactic Marine
    Mustafarian Lava Miner
    R2-D2
    Obi-Wan Kenobi
    Mace Windu
    Clone Trooper
    Super Battle Droid

    Wave 2: ANH
    M'Ylloom (Cantina Alien)
    Elis Helrot (Cantina Alien)
    Darth Vader
    Biggs Darklighter in Academy Outfit
    Luke Skywalker
    Jawa/Droid 2-Pack
    EU Chewbacca (McQuarrie Design)
    EU Stormtrooper (McQuarrie design)
    EU Boba Fett (Johnston Design)

    Wave 3: ROTJ
    Hermie Odle
    Oola w/Chain
    Umpass-Stay w/Gong
    C-3PO
    Luke Skywalker Jedi Knight
    A-Wing Pilot
    EUHoliday Special Boba Fett

    Wave 4: AOTC
    Mace Windu
    Anakin Skywalker
    Clone Trooper
    Padmé
    General Grievous (possible EU)
    EU Yuuzhan Vong



    3 3/4" Limited Edition Vintage Assortment:

    For the third wave of VOTC figures, we can expect much of the same, but as mentioned above, there is no point fixing what isn't broken. The new wave includes:


    ANH
    Jawas

    TESB
    Luke Skywalker (Bespin Fatigues)
    Imperial Stormtrooper (Hoth Battle Gear)
    Han Solo (Bespin Outfit)
    Bossk

    ROTJ
    Princess Leia Organa (Endor Battle Gear)



    3 3/4" expanded Universe 2-Packs:

    Finally the EU collecotr's time has come. Hasbro plans on releasing no less than 12 Expanded Universe two packs. Each collectible set will include figures based on both Marvel and Dark Horse Star Wars characters. While there's no word on whether we'll be getting the green bunny dude or Hoojibs (Note to Hasbro: Dudes, come on. Hook us up!), we are finally getting a Quinlan Vos figure. The sets include the following:


    MARVEL
    Darth Vader & Rebel Fleet Trooper
    Stormtrooper & Tarkin
    Han Solo Stormtrooper Disguise & Chewbacca
    Luke Stormtrooper Disguise & R2-D2

    Dark Horse
    Republic #55 (Clone Wars) - Obi-Wan & Alpha Arc Trooper
    SW Tales: Twilight #1 - Quinlan Vos VS. Vilmarh Grahrk

    Those were the best EU figures they could come up with?

    Yeah, sort of weak choices but at least they're trying. The Vong figure should be awesome, and the Quinn/Villie 2 pack will definitely rock. I'm sure they'll get to some more of the good EU characters at the end of 2007 and 2008 before the cartoon comes out.

    this is just the first 4 waves, so they still have a chance to redeem themselves, later in the year, and i really don't count concepts figures as EU, thats just bull

    I'm interested to see how this McQuarrie Stormtrooper is different than the last one.

    What about a set of them that you could interchange? :~)

    Oh look, it's Vong_Leia, or Vong-Guards, or Vong-Luke, or...? :~D
