Yakface have posted a list of coded names for what will be the upcoming The Last Jedi figures, all in code so it's a little harder. Any guesses?

From Yak face:
Remember how things were broken down for The Force Awakens 3.75″ basic figures? Figures and vehicles were grouped into 4 categories: “Forest”, “Snow”, “Desert” and “Space”. For The Last Jedi, the Star Wars Universe (SWU) is broken down into two categories, “Orange” and “Teal”. These color designation may have some alternate definition later on, but for now this is how they are being grouped.

Speculated/unconfirmed characters names listed in parenthesis

3.75″ Orange Collection Wave 1: 9/1/17

E8 Foxtrot (Rey)
E8 Beta 1 (Poe or Finn)
E8 Victor 1 (Kylo Ren)
E8 Beta 2 (Poe or Finn)
E8 Tango White (First Order Stormtrooper?)
E8 Cool Beta Grey (Luke)

3.75″ Teal Collection Wave 1: 9/1/17

E8 Victor 3
E8 Foxtrot 2
E8 Cool Alpha 1
E8 Delta 3 (R2?)
E8 Foxtrot 3

3.75″ Teal Collection Wave 2: 9/1/17

E8 Victor 3 – wv. 1 carry forward
E8 Foxtrot 2 – wv. 1 carry forward
E8 Cool Alpha 1 – wv. 1 carry forward
E8 Delta 3 – wv. 1 carry forward
E4 Obi-Wan Kenobi
E3 Yoda

Thoughts and ideas?

I like the lineup but am disappointed there's no "Victor 2" (Snoke) or "Victor 2 Guard" (Snoke's Praetorian Guards) in the first waves. I'm hoping these will be in the subsequent waves, since at least 2 more waves are almost a certainty based on previous lines. They are also prime candidates for the 2-packs.

I guess Victor 3 could be Hux. Or Phasma. Hopefully we'll get Finn in a flightsuit. Cool Alpha 1: Maybe General Leia?

Cool Alpha 1, I'm thinking Rose.
Could be, but I think they might release General Leia already since we didn't get her in the basic figures for TFA or R1. Rose may be one of the Foxtrots unless Rey is released with 3 outfits. Plus Alpha could designate a leader possibly. Either way, only a few of these have caught my eye: Luke (long enough wait), Finn (if he's in a flight suit), Leia (if she's in this list), and Rose (just for a new Resistance member).

I certainly hope one of those is Leia. Perhaps Cool Beta Grey is Leia and not Luke? Because Cool Alpha 1 is carried forward into wave 2, and I doubt they'd double up on Leia instead of Luke.

well this is Hasbro we're talking about :p beside, they did rerelease 2x rebels leia in r1 wv3 after 1x in her initial wv2 case. Also if wv2 orange is not a FF release then they could release more wv1 orange than the 2 teal waves.

it is saddening there are no rebels fig mention but then again in tfa line, rebels fig weren't released until wv2 and no new non repacks until wv3. so I guess there is a small glimmer of hope for 1-3 new rebels fig b4 tlj line ends

Hmmm....that's quite a bit of carry forwards for Teal W2. Depending on the sales of Teal W1, those carry forward might clog those pegs.

If there's no Luke available on September 1st I swear I'm going to start fires.

Same here. Though I can't recall, were any TFA figures shown at SDCC before Force Friday 2015?
None from the actual film, but capt rex and 5th brother from rebels were, but then not released until months later in the final tfa waves

That's true. Though we did get lots of leaks in the month leading up to TFA FF. Here's hoping the same happens this year B)

The 'hascon' press release stated there would be a sneak peak of TLJ figures at that; which makes me skeptical we'll see much at SDCC. Fingers crossed although my money's on the last R1 wave, 40th annvs stuff and one token TLJ reveal.

Isn't having after FF2? Any reveals then would ideally be fall excls or waves slated for late 2017 or early 2018.

Though I think the 40th Anniversary stuff is coking to an end it seems.

That would be a real downer because the figures are supposed to go on sale on Sept. 1st and that Hascon will be a few weeks later. I'm not going to pre-order anything (typical process where I live, if you want to get stuff), until I see some pics of the new figures. If I have to wait for Has(been)con, then I'll hold off for a while. I'm sure most of this stuff will be easy to get later on.

also I'm really hoping that Hasbro pulls out all the stops and gives us a few different Leia figures in honor of the late great Carrie Fisher. we still need TFA General Organa, and update on ROTJ Ewok Dress Leia, update on ESB Bespin Escape Leia, and TLJ Leia

The only reveals we'll get will be leaked photos of figures put out before the street date. Hasbro doesn't care to advertise and promote anymore. The internet and social media do it for them for free.

I'm not really an action figure collector and much more of a lego person, but i do have a couple of action figures of my favourite characters. I really do want some action figures of characters from the casino planet and i hope we do get some. Does anybody know what was zuvio's "codename" for his action figure?

It seems we are getting a Rathtar with Bala Tik pack. The gimmick this time being a wearable device that when placed near the creature produces sounds. At least its nice we are getting creatures again,
