Any news on Bandits High? I assume it's still going forward.

Didnt look up the official release date but Amazon has it as releasing 2/19/13, preorder price seems pretty good for the starter to boot.

I wonder if this means a Soviet P-39 is forthcoming as well.

Will the A6M3 and FM-1 be new sculpts? Or were the changes internal and don't require a new sculpt?

I'm guessing the Ki-61 will probably be a repaint of the first set version. I doubt it'll be the only repaint. Considering this is likely our last AAM set ever, as much variety as possible would be welcome. I'm glad to see the Oscar in there for "Flying Tigers" missions.

I'm keeping my hopes up for a P-47 though it might be a bit late for an early Pacific theater themed set. I'd like to see some ground-attack aircraft like the Stuka or Sturmovik as well. They're sort of outside the scope of a dogfighting game but it'd be nice to have as many ground game aircraft reprinted in A20 as possible.

I think that would be a good bet. Since they used them a lot and it's an easy reprint.
