My hope is that the lack of "Red Squad" sets means that a second wave is incoming. It's a little strange for LEGO to design unique minifigures and colors just to stick them on throwaway "space sleds" for a single set.
That's my thinking too. Of these six sets, three of them are of the blue squad. Why would LEGO even bother making a red, orange and green squad if they only get a single set? Brickshop.nl lists four more sets
for an August release too, which could mean another set for each squad (or preferrably, one base of sorts plus another set for each of the red, orange and green squads). Then you'd have 10 sets total: one base, three blue sets, two red, two orange and two green.
Wishful thinking maybe.. :)
