The second wave for 2009 has been revealed, and it will be centered on characters from The Empire Strikes Back! This wave will also include a Build-A-Droid (B-A-D) series of what looks to be U-3PO and not HK-47, as had been previously reported. (Although interestingly enough, U-3PO WAS rumored to be part of this wave initially.)

This wave includes the following figures:
  • BD-38: Luke Skywalker
  • BD-39: Emperor Palpatine
  • BD-40: Captain Needa
  • BD-41: Princess Leia
  • BD-42: Hoth Rebel Trooper (Version 1)

    Missing from this gallery are the Ugnaughts, who may or may not be a 2-pack. Previous information suggests this will be a running change between the two versions, but perhaps they will be packed together after all. Time will tell...

    In addition, several figure from wave 1 will also be repackaged in this wave, complete with the new BAD accessories
  • BD-08: Darth Vader
  • BD-33: Jawa & WED Treadwell Droid
  • BD-34: Ben (Obi-Wan) Kenobi


    And in case you aren't sick of them yet, here's one more chance to nab a "Greatest Hits" figure...with the new B-A-D part, of course!:
  • GH-02: Kashyyyk Trooper

    And just for good measure, we've also got a nice pair of shots of the Trinto Duaba and Dice Ibegon set, which will be part of the A New Hope wave
  • BD-37: Trinto Duaba & Dice Ibegon

    The new 75159 UCS Death Star has been announced and it's 99.5% re-release of a set, at an additional $100, that was only retired less than 12 months ago. How do you feel about this addition to the LEGO Star Wars line?
    Ecstatic: it's LEGO Star Wars after all!
    Great: I didn't get a chance to buy 10188.
    Fair to middling: I like to build and it has some nice new additions.
    meh: the UCS range is meant to be special.
    Harrumph: 10188 is cheaper on eBay.
    Fuming: abject failure in market research and imagination.
