As revealed in both the Exclusive Hasbro Interview and the ForceCast Collector's Edition podcast from Celebration V, Hasbro is planning to move to mixed waves for The Vintage Collection starting with wave 5...the first wave of 2011.

This wave incorporates 6 figures from A New Hope and Revenge of the Sith, including a bunch of figures scrambled at the last minute to fill out this wave.

Clone Trooper (Utapau)
Luke Skywalker (Tatooine)
Han Solo (Yavin Ceremony)
Commander Gree

This wave is still being determined exactly when it will be shipped, but it's possible it may show up as early as January, which will be exciting for fans. As always, stay tuned for more information as it develops!
