News out of THE MOST RECENT Q&A SESSION is that there will be an ATTACK OF THE CLONES wave for this fall.

Right now, the strongest rumor is for a repainted Jango Fett figure for this wave.  There are also numerous rumors floating around, most of which you can check out in THE RUMOR MILL.

So what would you like to see in this particular wave?

YAKFACE checks in this morning with a spy report on the Vintage Collection.  Included in that report is a RUMORED figure lineup for Vintage Collection Wave 4 - Attack Of The Clones.

This report is highly credible.  It includes individual item numbers for each figure.  And each figure is listed with a quantity that indicates that this information has come from a case assortment.  There are also figures listed which appear to have been carried forward from previous assortments.

However, until we see official imagery or receive explicit confirmation from Hasbro this list should be taken as rumor only:


The Vintage Collection Wave 4
1x Zam Wiessel (24989)
1x Obi-Wan (24990)
1x Peasant Anakin (24991)
1x Peasant Padme (24992)
1x Jango Fett (24993)
1x Kit Fisto (24988)
1x Mace Windu (24994)
1x Blue Senate Guard (24995)
1x Super Battle Droid (24996)
1x Grievous with Cape (20824)
1x Sandtrooper (20832)
1x Darth Vader (97580)

Now that I've had a little bit of time to digest this news, here are some quick thoughts about select figure in this wave:

I would expect that the Jango Fett in this wave is going to be a better painted version of the Evolutions release.  I'm also hoping that this version will also feature the rocket pack that's seen in the Kamino landing platform fight.  The one that was included in the Evolutions release was from the Geonosis Arena battle.

As for new characters in this wave?  I have to admit a bit of disappointment that there aren't any characters that have never been done before.  As for the rest?

The original peasant disguise Anakin was a pretty week figure, even in 2002.  This was definitely in need of an upgrade.  But will he come with Padme's luggage?

Padme is the only really new figure in the wave.  But which variation of this costume will Hasbro make?  Given the name, I'm thinking it will be the version seen on the freighter.

Zam Wessel is another figure that really needed to be upgraded.  She's involved in enough of the action that she should have gotten a pretty good figure.  It's remarkable that it's taken Hasbro 8 years to get around to it though.  And will they address the shapeshifting face?

The Senate Guard is actually something that I think needed to be upgraded.  A kitbash of the POTJ Senate Guard's head with the ROTS Senate Guard's body could work.  But still, the ROTS figure was limited by the angle cuts of the elbows.  And with this version I'm hopeful that they'll make this version with the force pike as seen when Yoda and Mace Windu are observing the Senate vote.

Kit Fisto is a bit of a head scratcher.  But the character's popularity has grown over time, especially with his appearances in the CLONE WARS series.  Still, I would have preferred a never before made Jedi from the arena battle before a new or kitbashed Kit Fisto.

Regarding this particular figure, here's a screencap of him from AOTC:




It's certainly not a very action oriented pose, but he's a cool scene filler.
