    Hasbro said that there would be a total of 26 figures out at the time the movie opens. The list may not be 100% accurate, as who comes in a case may change. And it's odd that Pilot Obi-Wan wasn't listed, but this is a preliminary list. According to the press release the remaining 12 that will hit on or just before MAY 16th will be:

    Collection 1:
    Anakin Skywalker: Hanger Duel
    CloneTrooper
    Count Dooku: Dark Lord
    Mace Windu: Geonosian Rescue
    Yoda: Jedi Master
    Zam Wesell: Bounty Hunter

    Collection 2:
    Geonosian Warrior
    Jar Jar Binks: Gungan Senator
    Luminara Unduli: Jedi Master
    Nikto: Jedi Knight
    Royal Guard: Coruscant Security
    Saesee Tiin: Jedi Master

    Jar Jar, do you consider that a pretty final list for May? There have been other threads which mentioned other figures that are missing. As you stated, Obi-Wan, also Pilot Padme and a Kaminoan, Dexter Jettster and Beheaded Jango. Will these be later in the year, along with Palpatine?

    Also, which Clonetrooper? The Commander?

    Thanks !

    I think it's close, though I would hope they switch Obi-Wan: Pilot with one of the figures. But according to Toy Fair the basic Obi-Wan appears to fit in the StarFighter. Padme: Pilot, Lama Su, Taun We, Dexter Jettster and Jango: Geonosian Arena I think are more likely for later this summer, and fall.

    As for what Clonetrooper, the press release just states CloneTrooper. So I am going to assume that they mean just a basic trooper, and not the command trooper. Since all the other charecters got a designation like "hanger Duel". If it was the Commander, I assume it would have said, "Commander".

    Thank You Jar Jar.

    I really do appreciate what you try to do here. You seem to be one of the best sources of info to turn to.

    Do you have any idea how Hasbro will do the case assortments? Will the Preview 4 case of figs be gone after their month in the spotlight? Will the 4/23 figures be around after the 5.16s hit the shelves? Are we looking at the possibility of 5 different case assortments being distributed at the same time?

    Also, are we looking at having "short packed" figures on the 23rd? If the cases are still 12 pieces, and there are 8 figures in the C1 assortment, that implies that at least 4 figures will be short packed as 1-per-case. I know the availability of stock will be less than it was with E1, so could we have some possibly hard-to-find figures right at the start?

    I seem to recall hearing that Collection 1 would be a 16-figure box, with 2X of each figure. Wasn't that the way that the first wave of TPM figures were packed?

    Journalists are mostly centrist in their political orientation. The minority of journalists who do not identify with the "center" are more likely to identify with the "right" when it comes to economic issues and to identify with the "left" when it comes to social issues.

    The preview figures will stop shipping around the time that the switch over takes place to blue cards. So that means they will be avaliable for only around a month, but might pop up occassionally in stores that have main warehouses. But since we already will have by May 16th replacemnets for the 3 main figures in the preview set, I don't see them showing up much after the blue saga cards start showing up. So:

    March 16th: Preview Cases (Some are popping up now)
    April 23rd: Collection 1 and 2: Wave 1
    May 16th: Collection 1 and 2: Wave 2 (refresh case)

    Yeah, I don't like the idea that it's a 12 figure case, and there are 8 figures in collection 1. That means the breakdown will probably be heavy packing main charecters like Anakin, Padme, and Jango, and then short packing all the rest at 1 per case. In my opinion, they should have went to a 16 figure case for collection 1.

    The original Collection 1 cases for May 3rd were 32 figures, that allowed 4 of each figure, as well as 1 of each Battle droid. The print out from TRU says Collection 1: 12 figures. So unless that changes there will be short packs. Which sucks, cause you know that they will short pack probably- Super Battle Droid, Kit Fisto, R2-D2, and C-3PO. Expecting kids would prefer- Anakin, Padme, Jango, and Obi-Wan.

    Yeah, on a case assortment that was released earlier for the first collection 1 case on Apr. 23rd the Battle Droid is supposed to be only packed 1 per and Obi-Wan and Anakin get 3 per. Another Peg-Warms over Army Builders case.
