I think I can gather what some of the Episode 3 figures will look like, based on stuff the Insider has been showing us:
Most interesting are:
1) New style Clone Troopers such as what's being shown on the cover of the next Insider, with the helmets sort of "stormtrooper" and some featuring macro-binoculars that rotate over the T-visor from behind the helmet (aka Zam Wessel's rotation, sort of)
These will be as exciting as all army-builders in white armor have traditionally been. Ever seen a Stormtrooper pegwarm?
2) Niemoidian Soldier - this guy (Featured in Insider 76:Luke Skywalker cover) is pretty darn cool! I thought ALL Niemoidians were cowards who used droids to fight for them. I'm glad to be proven wrong. These alien soldiers look like they could kick some butt. Probably aren't a lot of them, but something tells me Nute Gunray will have a few as body guards because he's chicken of a certain pregnant Naboo Senator! LOL
3) Anakin Skywalker - obviously. Hopefully a really good figure showing his first scar, the longer hair, etc.
4) Darth Vader - also obvious.
5) some kind of battle-ravished resculpt (amongst 2-3 resculpts we'll get anyway but one of these could be really cool considering this movie.
6) Anakin Skywalker - "big duel" - the intense facial expressions return, but this will be a cool figure.
7) Anakin Skywalker softgoods starfighter pilot - another obvious one, but will keep Anakin on the racks.
8) Obi-Wan Kenobi - obvious
9) big duel Obi-Wan Kenobi
10) Palpatine - a special figure (spoilers not in this thread)
11) Padme - pregnant - I don't see how they can not include her???
12) a certain General (spoilers not in this thread)
13) Bail Organa - obvious
What else? (be mindful of spoilers I guess).
Oh, and while a really good Yoda would be fine, how many more Kit Fistos, SaeSee Tiins, Plo Koons, Ki-Adi Mundis and so forth do you think they'll throw out there? Unless they are seriously different from previous versions and super-cool - I'm not planning to buy them.
Looking forward to the new Clones and the Neimoidian Soldier though.
