View Full Version : My 2010 Predictions

Hasbro's given us only a few hints as to what we'll be seeing in 2010, but I'm going to take a stab at what we might see next year based on their previous track records and what was revealed or hinted in the Q&A's.

Hasbro said we'll see about 45 "new" figures in the Legacy/movie line next year including the already revealed EU wave. So besides those 6 we have 39 figure slots to work with. Assuming every movie gets a wave (this fact in itself hasn't been confirmed) here is how I predict they will show up...

TPM:

1. Jar Jar Binks
2. Mawhonic
3. Naboo Pilot w/ trenchcoat
4. Captain Panaka or possibly Naboo Royal Guard
5. Depa Billaba or another Jedi Council member upgrade
6. Tey How

ROTS:

1. IG Magnaguard
2. Merumeru or another Kashyyyk wookiee
3. Cin Drallig
4. Yoda
5. Darth Sidious (senate)
6. Mon Calamari Dancer

ESB:

1. Captain Piett
2. Princess Leia (Hoth)
3. Luke Skywalker (Hoth)
4. Dengar
5. Wedge Antilles (Snowspeeder)
6. 2-1B
7. Rebel Deck Officer or Toryn Farr
8. Hoth Rebel Soldier (clean variant, doesn't count as "new" figure)

AOTC:

1. Queen Jamillia
2. Zam Wesell
3. Ko Sai
4. Padme (senator)
5. Anakin Skywalker (peasant)
6. FA-4 Pilot Droid

ANH:

1. Han Solo (Yavin)
2. Rebel Fleet Trooper
3. Commander Praji, Tarkin or other Imperial
4. Ponda Baba
5. Dr. Evazan
6. Bom Vimdin

ROTJ:

1. Admiral Ackbar
2. Wicket
3. Gray Squadron Pilot
4. AT-ST Driver
5. Gamorrean Guard
6. Wooof
7. Weequay Skiff Master
8. Orrimaarko or other Endor Rebel

So that 45 "new" figures including the EU wave, plus the Hoth rebel repack. This leaves no room for a repaint wave, but I don't believe Hasbro would count them as really new.

I ordered the waves based on what would make sense coming off of this years wave ordering, coupled with the anniv of ESB (i put that one smack in the middle much like this years TPM was sorta supposed to be.) I put ANH and ROTJ at the end to really end the year with a "bang" being full of highly requested figures. Again much like this year will be.

So what do you think?

I like your OT choices. They should probably rerelease Bossk and IG-88, and Bespin Luke, in the Legends line to go along with ESB's 30th anniversary.

I loike some of your predictions Cane Adiss:

would love to see the following:

TPM:

Jar Jar Binks SA
Mawhonic SA
Captain Panaka SA
Naboo Pilot Trenchcoat SA

ROTS

Cin Drallig SA
Darth Sidious Senate SA


AOTC

Naboo Meadow Picnic Padme Sa
Anakin Skywalker Peasant SA

ANH:

Commander Praji SA
Rebel Fleet Trooper SA (various heads sculpts)

ESB

Captain or Admiral Piett SA
Wedge Snowspeeder SA
Princess Leia Hoth SA
Princess Leia Bespin Escape SA
Hoth Rebel Solider (various head sculpts) SA
Hoth Rebel Deck Officer SA

ROTJ

Gray Sqaudron Pilot SA
Admiral Ackbar SA
Weequay Skiff Guard SA

I also believe that at this point Hasbro has shown that they can give us great figures with Super Articulation for the same price as before so for Hasbro to not give us SA figures is a step back for them.

would also love to see a return to VOTC next year with focus on both trilogys

I predict the death of Legacy and we're lucky to get what they showed at Comic-Con this year. Look at galactichunter's Q&A from this time.

I predict I won't get any new figures after Feb, just like this year.
