Of course they were wrong in the past about a few things, but they now list the following figures to be avaliable later this year. All of these have been on the rumored list for this year, as well as early Hasbro lists. :)

Clone Trooper: Republic Gunship Pilot
Destroyer Droid: Arena Battle
Jango Fett: Slave 1 Pilot
Lott Dodd: Neimoidian Senator
Tusken Raider w/ Massiff
Watto: Mos Espa Junk Dealer

I hope to God that is correct, it looks like they've corrected everything. :D

I like all of those listed, but I'm really liking the Tusken with Massiff. Now I'm wondering if I should take my other Massiff back so I won't have two of the same (lucky I didn't open it yet). I didn't want two of the same fighting over the Rancor with Luke bone - it just looks weird with the exact same pose. But the Cargo Bay could be wrong, or they might just put the same Massiff in with the Tusken.
Oh, decisions, decisions.

End :crazed:.

The massiff better come with a Bantha bone for 2 of them to fight over!

If the Tusken Raider's massiff is different, just use the two different ones for the same scene and put the rest in the background. I plan on getting the Massiff w/ Geonosians anyways for the Geonosians.

Isn't the gunship pilot a deluxe fig with the bubble cannons?

Hope the droideka is good, at least now I won't have to hunt around for E1 ones. :) Hope they at least corrected the middle "eye", on both Droideka figs they made it to short so he's looking at the ground while really it's supposed to be long and curve out for him to see straight ahead.

Yeah they better fix the Droideka middle eye! And one better fold up.

The Gunship Pilot is supposed to be a Basic figure LTB. The size of the bubble cannon is up in the air though. It may not actually be large enough for the trooper to fit in. Instead I think it will simply be about the size of the bubble turrets in the wings of the gunship vehicle, which look like they're about 1/2 proper scale, just like the rest of the ship.

I have about a dozen Droikekas from Ep1 so I hope they do something different with this new one.:) None of these new listed figures is interesting to me except Slave 1 Jango. That one I'm excited about :)

Maybe the Bubble Turret with have a Mini-Me Clone Trooper sculpted inside it, or it may be removable.

True, pthfnder. I forgot about the sizing, most likely the cannons will be small and if they make it a snap together thing, then it could easily fit in the basic figure bubbles, oh well, least with that we don't have to pay double the price for one. :D

I already have 3 droidakas and one oone battle damages but I would gladly put them away for some better new ones:D

I hope the Pilot Jango comes with a removable helmet, I'd be a bit disappointed otherwise. Can't wait to get my hands on the Clonetrooper Pilot either.

DARN no Poggle the lesser figure. Also no Lama Su figure.
Abit disapointing!

Lott Dodd wasn't even in this film unless he got a face lift and a vocal cord tightening. But I'm looking forward to another Neimodian regardless.

I hope the Raider is cool... I still haven't got the sniper one :( The Massif better be different too...

The new Destroyer will probably just be a new sculpt for the main parts with perhaps an action feature. I think in AOTC they had a different paint job too... I think the rolling feature is far to much to hope for.

The clone trooper can just be yellow as far as I'm concered... I don't need no stinkin bubble...

Lott Dod is an E1 figure, BizRodian. A long cancelled one, that is finally seeing the light of day. I'm happy, hopefully we still get Holo Nute Gunray as well. And then maybe Daultay Dofine and Tey How, would be a nice addition.

I doubt the Massiff will be very different. Maybe a slightly different paint job and come with a bone. The Tusken I bet will have the rumored removable head. :)

The Destroyer Droid is probably a new version, similar to the one from the cancelled Jar Jar vs Destroyer Droid 2-pack. With the correct extended ceneter eye. I doubt we'll get a rolling up feature. Though a shield is a good ****ibility with the size of the bubbles.

Just a yellow CloneTrooper maybe fine for you. But we need a pilot version with the side turrets for our gunships that are coming out the same time. We'll probably get the CloneTrooper Commander next year. :)

Nope, Blue CT's are Lieutenants. Commanders are Yellow. Here is the color breakdown again, according to StarWars.com:

"It is indeed an indication of rank. Yellow markings indicate a commander. Red clone troopers are captains, blue are lieutenants and green are sergeants."

The Tusken with Massif is a curious inclusion. Well the Massif is. We haven't seen the Massif over here in the UK yet so is it possible that they ceased production on the Geo handler with Massif and it's a rarity? Replaced by the Tusken version. I hope that's not so because I really wanted both the Geo handler and the Massif together seeing as the Geo handler was a nicer Geonosian than the single carded one. I think I'd like some clarification on that one.

Beast

I doubt they ceased production Jargo. The Massiff and Geonosian Handler is stilll scheduled to be rotated back in future assortments. Just a case of giving people somthing extra with their Tusken figure. And since the Massiff's are actually visible on Tatooine it makes sense. Ugh, I can see scalpers now:

"Rare Massiff w/ Geonosian Handler"
Hasbro packed the Massiff in with the wrong charecter, and now have said that the the Massiff will be coming with a Tusken Raider. Get this rare hard to find mistake figure, because Hasbro won't make anymore of this set ever."

Who cares if the Massiff was on Tatooine in the movie? It's a good diorama filler plus the Geonosian is great considering the Geonosian audience were wingless plus the ones that attacked Padme and Anakin first were wingless. It seems only the higher ranked ones are the winged ones.

I hope Dodd still has the removable hat/crown.

The Destroyer Droid should come with four long (2 in.) blast affects to attach to it's guns.

I stand corrected on there not being Massifs in the UK, I bought two today and finally found my crappy Dooku. :) Love the massif to bits even though it's non posable. The mouth is great and they can be posed just like the two circling Massifs in the Tusken camp. The Geonosian was a little less brilliant being covered in grey/green/silver spray and hardly anything like as colourful as the prototype pics. But at least he stands up and at the end of the day I can always repaint him. :)

The Tusken will probably pack with a massif that simply doesn't have the harness. I'm all for more Tusken raiders and critters. Now if they'd just release the Tusken tent to shove a beat up Shmi into...... :evil:
