Hey! I wanted to know if the following figures are rumored, planned, confirmed, or none of the above. Any answers will be greatly appreciated:

Nute Gunray (Episode 2 version)

Gilramos Lebkath (New Neimodian)

Lott Dod (Is this figure coming out? When? Exclusive?)

Poggle the Lesser

Wat Tambor

Any of the Other separatists at conference table

Darth Sidious

Bail Organa

Any playsets for the separatists or a playset of the final hangar for the duel.

Also, if these figures aren't rumored, what is the likelyhood of hearing about them soon. Thank you for any information.

Have a nice day!

There is a Nute Gunray coming, but it's an E1 Hologram version.

I haven't heard anything at all about Gilramos Lebkath.

Lott Dod is still supposed to get his E1 figure release this year.

No word on Poggle the Lesser, probably next year.

Wat Tambor was on early Hasrbo lists, so he should be out this year.

No word at all about any of the other sepratists. Maybe next year.

Sidious doesn't play a huge part in E2, if he gets a figure it won't be soon. The E1 figure is great. :)

Bail Organa I have heard is likely for next year as well. :)

Is there another Obi-Wan figure on the way? How about a Clone Trooper Commander (with the yellow color)?

There are two Obi-Wans available now, Coruscant Chase and Jedi Starfighter Pilot, I don't know of any more.
Someone said there is a yellow Clone on the way . . . :D

Hasbro mentioned a third Obi-Wan at Celebration 2. I think it's probably a Hanger Duel version. As for the Yellow Clone, it's going to be the Pilot version for the Gunship. He will most likely hit stores about the same time the Republic Gunship does, this Fall. He'll come packed with one of the side bubble pods. So buy 2 Pilot CloneTroopers and you have both Pilots and pods for your Republic Gunship. :cool: :D

An Obi-Wan Hangar Duel? Come on. Coruscant Chase works for the duel, but I suppose we could use one with the ability to hold lightsaber with two hands. And I wouldn't mind battle damage. :D

With a singed shirt? I'd love a Hangar Playset, though I haven't yet got Dooku or Anakin. But I hope to get both very soon.

How about a wet-looking Obi-wan Kamino escape?

Do a headswap on the upcoming Jedi Starfighter Version, and pour a glass of water over his cloak. Sorry, just had to be a smart arse. :D

I have heard collectors on the web mention R5-D4 and blue Battle Droid as rumored releases. Also, I 've heard General Madine, but I believe people were excited when they saw the name "Rebel Officer" listed and wishful thinking lead the to believe Madine was on the way. After, Ephant Mon, I trully hope to see 1 or 2 more carded original trilogy figures before the years is over.

Actually, "Rebel Officer" was originally listed under the header of ANH, by Hasbro, which led to speculation that it was most likely General Jan Dodonna or Captain Antillies. Now, the latest lists show that it's a ROTJ "Rebel Officer". And the only Rebel Officer that it could possibly be from ROTJ is "General Madine". I think we will still see most of the figures coming from E2, but there are a few more from the OT, and a couple from E1 that are coming before the end of the year. :)

Any chance of a figure of Luminara's padawan lerner?

Barris Offee is the one you mean ScarletX. I reckon all the jedi will get made at some point. The market is huge for them.

JJB, I thought that the hologram Nute was debunked as a typo at the fanclub site? I heard that the Nute is an AOTC Nute and The hologram Nute that was listed with Lott Dod was what was not being produced. It'd be silly not to make an AOTC Nute with lines like "Jango, finish her off" "I want her head on my desk" Nute becomes a great villain. Gotta capitalise on that rather than just make a dumb old hologram of him.

Poggle's gotta be in the xmas releases with that death star holographic plans thing. Xmas is going to be the time to hit the releases surely? Most parents only buy their kids loads of stuff around xmas from what I noticed. Been seeing plenty of kids interested in the toys over here. That should last until xmas then fade away leaving the good stuff for us. :evil:

I dunno Jargo, it may be a typo that it's coming from the fan club, but I still hold out hope that he still will be released this year in the regular line. This year has already seen the cancelled Luke: Bespin and Vader: Bespin released. And the Deluxe Destroyer droid will hopefully be based on the unproduced 2-pack version. So, I am hoping that Holo Nute and Lott finally also see the light of day this year. Besides, E2 Nute's hat is stupid lookin'. :D
