I thought there were only going to be 3 figures, then another droid shows up.

It's been rumored that 6 figures will show up and there are current reports of the Starspeeder 3000 being made in figure scale also.

So far we've seen 4, so only time will tell.

Rebelscum is saying that we may end up with as many as 9. We will atleast get six, because the DL-X2 droid is the first figure from the second assortment. :)

Once upon a time...

A poster at Ringofcollectors.com and toymania.com/toybuzz posted that he had inside info on a planned set of 3 waves of 3 figures based on the Star Tours ride, along with the Starspeeder vehicle. The figures would be exclusive to Disney.

Back then, the figures were dismissed as a rumor. (the figs were too obscure, disney's too exclusive, etc). Then as time passed, even more people thought is a rumor.

Now, a year later, BAM! Star Tours figures. So, if we go back to that original, dismissed rumor:

Wave 1: Has "Collection 1" on the card
Starspeeder Pilot Droid - new
G2 Mechanic Droid - new
R2 repaint

Wave 2: Has "Collection 2" on the card
Repair Droid - new
R2 Repaint
Protocol Droid Repaint

Wave 3: Has "Collection 3" on the card
R2 repaint
G2 Mechanic repaint
NEW droid

And a 3-3/4 inch scale Star Speeder.


Well, wave one was dead on: Rex (the pilot), G2 (the mechanic) and R3 (a PotJ R2 repaint)

Then, wave 2 so far we have DL-X2 (new repair droid).

Based on this, I think we can expect those last 5 of the 9 figures to include the rest of the original list:

Wave 2:
DL-X2
R2 Repaint
Protocol Droid Repaint

Wave 3:
R2 repaint
G2 Mechanic repaint
NEW droid


Unless Hasbro changes everything again :(

Only time (and sites like ssg and the scum) will tell...

A Protocol Droid Repaint would be great!

I could see 3 waves of 3. Basically we just have to wait and see.
