    Dauntry Dofine - Stanís Rumour List
    Queen Amidala Confirmed by Hasbro during Q&A #56 - at one point in time there was to be another Amidala in rumor mix for this wave, so this could be one that fills out the early 2009 wave, the Queen Amidala has also been listed in the "vintage" line rumor list as "Theed Invasion" - as a core/action version, this one would make sense for a "vintage" style release on that type of cardback

    R5-X2 - Told that this one is off the list for now
    Tusken Raider (Jundland Wastes) - April 5th GH Blogger & Stanís Rumour List Ė although the added note here was ďsniperĒ

    Removed, Combined or Otherwise
    Nikto Skiff Guard - Became Nysad in the ROTJ wave
    Orrimaarko - Also now associated with Major Panno from the ROTJ wave (although a second head may be coming!)
    Rebel Commando - this one became Major Panno in the ROTJ Wave
    TFU Figure - sounds like this is the 2009 Shaak Ti
    TIE Fighter Pilot - In the upcoming Evolutions set Imperial Pilots Legacy #2
    Klaatu (Jabba's Palace - "Wooof")42N-TLR 8/11/08 Prognostication - Now Confirmed by Hasbro!
    Lt. Renz Ė Local Source (and this may actually be part of a battlepack) - and it did turn out to be part of the Assault on the Sheild Generator BP.
    New Wedge Antilles - SSG 12/7 Q&A - listing this here as they said it wouldn't be on a basic card. - Moved to new Wedge/Borsk Comic pack
    Obi-Wan vs. Durge - April 4th GH Blogger This was a possibility to include Durge and the IG Lancer droids. Given that we have Durge coming from a comic pack, and the Lancer Droids coming in the basic line it sounds like, while correct, this one has been parted out to other release mechanisms - and from the original post, it sounded like that was a possibility to begin with.
    Wes Janson (Snowspeeder Pilot) - C4 Spy Report & Stanís Rumour List - Looks like another one for the Evolutions sets.
    Padme Variant (non-specific gown variant) - April 5th GH Blogger - Probably Appearing ONLY in the evolutions set.
    Arvel Crynyd - April 5th GH Blogger - Moved from basic figures to vehicles section.
    Tsu Choi - C4 Spy Report Ė There are now pictures of this figure in the Order 66 sets, so while we're keeping him listed in that section, it appears that there's no longer a need to list him in the basic figure section.
    Vaderís Secret Apprentice Ė This is obviously coming as part of the evolutions set, so it no longer needs to be listed under the basic figures for 2008.
    The Force Unleashed Hero Pack - Given the new confirmation of the TFU Evolution set it's safe to assume that this was the OLD name for that set.
    "Shadow" Stormtrooper (TFU) - It is believed that the fourth, black Stormtrooper shown in the photo with the blue, red and metallic Stormtroopers was the upcoming SL fan's choice shown for comparison sake.
    Han Solo (Detention Block Rescue) - April 5th GH Blogger Now Confirmed
    Luke Skywalker (Detention Block Rescue) - April 5th GH Blogger Now Confirmed

    Re: TLC News and Rumor Central v.5

    '78 I was going through the list again and a couple of things stuck out to me. In the 2009 comic pack section you have Darth Krayt and Sigel Dare listed, we know they are now confirmed by Hasbro but you still list Legacy comic packs for issues 7 and 22. Issue 22 is the Krayt/Dare comic pack since that is the issue that both of them appear in. That means you only need to list issue 7 since we don't know who we are getting out that issue.

    The other thing I was wondering is, why do you continue to list the removed, combined section. Some of those figures we already have received and others are confirmed in other sources. So why do you continue to list them and just not take that off all together?

    Re: TLC News and Rumor Central v.5

    So...until individual threads are started...

    Legacy #7 and #22 Comic-Packs.
    Who could it be??

    #7: Darth Nihil & Wolf Sazen OR
    Shado Vao & Astraal Vao
    Shado & Wolf
    Syn & Nihil

    #22: Darth Azard & Gar Stazi
    Treis Sinde & Darth Azard
    Treis Sinde & civilian clothes Sigel Dare
    Sigel Dare & Gar Stazi

    Stazi could use the Mouse (Duros) head
    Azard could use Darth Maleval's head
    Sigel Dare could have the "existing" Dare head

    Thoughts?

    Re: TLC News and Rumor Central v.5

    Aackbar, Issue 22 is the confirmed Krayt/Dare comic pack that we have been told about.

    As for Issue 7, I would say bring back the rumour of Wolf/Nihl. That is the most logical for that issue. I listed before all the possible candidates for who could be from this issue and Wolf/Shado/Nihl were the most likely, so the Nihl/Wolf rumour is back into play and makes perfect sense for this comic pack.

    Re: TLC News and Rumor Central v.5

    Ah, now I remember. The discussion about Legacy #8 turned into issue #22...which means Dare will probably be in civilian clothes...darn.

    The list up top needs to be amended to reflect that confirmation then.

    I wouldn't worry about Dare being in civilian garb for this comic pack.

    Red-suited Sullustan B-Wing pilot in the next ROTJ wave. But there are plans to name it Nien Nunb.

    But isn't the red-suited B-Wing Sullustan technically Ten Nunb, with Nien having a different uniform with, you know, a vest and not breathing apparati?

    Zuh? I hope they don't do that. Then they will claim there is no need to update the actual Nien Nunb.
