That's a helpful list. Thanks for posting it here in the thread. I like some of these, but I am struck by the lack of alien fun outside of the Sail Barge dudes. As a longtime collector who is not a completist, but passionately and comprehensively collects along certain themes or lines, 2019 looks like this ...Wave 1 (Jan)VC 132 Saelt Marae (Yak Face)
Very happy to have this overdue update. The figure looks amazing. VC 133 Scariff Stormtrooper (repack)
A very worthy repack. Supply was short the first time around. I hope to pick up a bunch. Now if only they would also repaint and re-accessorize him to represent other ranks as the AT-ACT Drivers, like they did for the 6" line when Rogue One came out. VC 134 Princess Leia (repack)
Pass. Don't need. VC135 Klatuu (Skiff Guard)
Looks great. In for at least one. Wave 2 (Apr)VC 138 Elite Praetorian Guard (repack)
A worthy repack, considering the demand for these guys, but not one i plan on picking up . I don't care for the design. VC 139 Lando Calrissian (Solo)
Didn't need this one as an SA figure, but I will pick one up. VC 140 Imperial Stormtrooper (new)
Excellent. Hoping this figure is in ample supply. I may need many.VC 141 TBA (possibly Chewbacca)
If it's a Solo bandoleer Chewie, I'm in, but otherwise I'll pass. I have so many Chewies already.VC 142 Captain Phasma (repack)
Good repack, but not one I need. Wave 3 (Jul)VC 146 Luke Skywalker (Crait)
Not one I need, but it's a new figure and one that i hope lots of collectors will be wanting. VC 147 Death Star Gunner
I like this new Rogue One version and plan on picking up at least two. May get more for customizing purposes. VC 148 Assault Tank Commander
Was just about to custom paint my own version, but I will hold off and pick this guy up instead. I don't mind these trooper repaints and would like Hasbro to do more of this sort of thing if it helps them balance their bottom lines. VC 149 TBAVC 150 Darth Revan (repack)
Should be a popular figure. Not one I need. ExclusivesVC 136 TBAVC 137 TBA
VC 143 Han Solo; Stormtrooper Disguise (Target)
Probably pass. Not one I need, but it's a good choice. VC 144 TBAVC 145 41st Elite Core Clonetrooper (online)
Curious choice. Pass. VC 021 Gamorrean Guard
Good idea to rerelease, considering the demand, but I got as many as I will ever need last time around. Reissues Leia (Hoth Outfit), Han Solo (Echo Base), Darth Vader, Luke Skywalker (Endor Capture), Boba Fett (ESB version). These could be some of the TBA figure slots.
Those are probably all good ideas for rereleases, though none appeal to me, personally.
I need more new, never before produced aliens and droids. Bring on realistic Clone Wars, Rebels and Resistance characters. Bring on the Partisans from Rogue One, or some of Enfys Nest's gang. More cantina and Jabba's palace aliens would be great, but, leaning on more current media, I'd also love more fun creatures from Maz's castle, or Jedha, Kessel, or Vandor. There's so much fun stuff there to draw from.
