Hasbro Star Wars Q&A - Session 4 Updated

In our last Star Wars Q&A Session with Hasbro, we asked for a little clarification on the planned order of the first few basic figure waves in 2009. Today, Hasbro passed along word that their initial answer was a bit incomplete. To avoid any confusion, they have given us a new, more complete answer to the question:

1. Just to clear up some confusion, can you confirm the order of the waves next year? We’re pretty sure 2009 (or maybe late 2008) starts with the 8 figures from ANH, then comes the 6-figure ESB themed Wave 2, followed by the 6-figure RotJ themed Wave 3? Is that right?

** To clarify, the 2009 basic figure order looks like this: Spring consists of EpIV (8 figures), EpV (6 figures), EpII (6 figures), and EpVI (8 figures). Fall will see four waves: EpIV (8 figures), EpI (6 figures), EpIII (6 figures), and EpV (6 figures) for a total of 54 figures. A 9th wave, the EU wave (6 figures), has slipped to be on-shelf right now around late Dec/early Jan so we are not counting that in the 2009 count, unless we are able to bring that one back in.
