Oh, I remember hearing about their Behringer 2-XM (2 Voice Oberheim SEM) and JT-2 (2 Voice Jupiter 8 ) which might also be appearing soon. Even so, I'm a bit meh about vintage analog now, and sticking with my Minilogue.

JT-16 [Jupiter 8]
Wave [PPG Wave]
Neptune 80 [Juno-106]
Polyeight [Polysix]
VCS 3 [EMS VCS 3]
It takes them so long to release after announcement nowadays that I forget how long ago the announcements were. JT16 was only recent so I can't even see it being this year. Neptune is prolly the oldest, hence most likely next release. Wave - I don't even remember them announcing it. Poly8 was fairly recently also, so not this year. VCS3...in the pipeline for at least 3 yrs, so could be imminent, but Behringer did admit it was difficult to engineer.
In terms of can'twaitability my list is:

VCS3 :hyper: :hyper: :hyper: :hyper: :hyper: :love: - No debate. It gets bought whatever price
JT16 :hyper: :hyper: :hyper: :hyper: :D - Seriously want one
Poly8 :shrug: - Meh meh. The original was meh, so this is double.
Neptune :P - Just have to resist my nostalgia cos I know it's crap really
Wave :P :P - Wavetables. Will be awful. Won't take it even if they give it away. Nice colour though.

Actually...what's really sad is that the pic doesn't seem to have a Proton. That was announced about 27 yrs ago and seems to have died a death? I would instabuy a Proton. I'll probably get a Neutron at some point but would much rather have a Proton. :(

If you zoom in on the very bottom left (the post on GS has a link to an HD image), on the next rack, there's something with jack plugs in silver.
Not saying that's it ('cause it isn't), but it's something unidentified (it's a mixer), so might give some hope if you' squint and believe enough :lol:

^^^ way desirable, but also way beyond my current price ceiling for mere self indulgence.

Yeah I've seen the Proton talked about and shown a lot, so where is it? Must be coming soon.
