I would think that at the 6" scale we would top out with some sort of Hero starfighter vehicle.  Based on the fact that Hasbro went with a TFA TIE Fighter, I would think that the logical choice for a companion piece would be a Resistance X-Wing.  The question is HOW.  How does Hasbro manage to get that X-Wing into a box that fits on store shelves?

Beyond that?  I think that speeder vehicles are a lot more accessible for this line.  The starfighter vehicles come across much more like a special offering, especially considering the price point.

A February release for Black Panther?  Wow.  February is usually where most movies go to die.  That is, unless, if Disney/Marvel are trying to claim a part of the year that generally goes un-served by genre films.

That is quite a bit jammed into that trailer!  And a fair amount of footage from The Siege of Lothal which we've obviously already seen.

I watched it at first with the sound down... I'm at work.  When I saw that figure with the white hair and the beard?  For a moment I thought that Kanan, Ezra and Chopper were with Obi-Wan Kenobi.  But when I re-watched it and heard Clancy Brown's voice I knew that this wasn't the case. 

It looks like this should be a really good season.  And I'm glad that it looks like they won't be so tied down to Lothal.

I came across some audio of an electronic Captain Phasma figure. And it most certainly had Gwendoline Christie's voice.

Found it.  There's an electronic Captain Phasma helmet with some dialogue phrases which you can hear on YouTube.

Out of stock again.

I would expect some details about exclusives at this point.  Especially since they're showing up in stores.  Maybe a look at some of the returning OT characters, but even then I'm a bit skeptical.

I wish I could go.  I work pretty close to the convention center, but I can't get away to check it out.

Star Wars 7 News is reporting that the full trailer for THE FORCE AWAKENS will likely be released on Monday, October 19th.  This is also the date on which advance tickets go on sale for Episode VII.

Hints are dropping that we might see The Winds of Winter published within the next few months. has gotten word of publishers reaching out to a Polish translator to reserve their services around the end of this year to work on Book 6.  Not anything close to an official announcement, but encouraging news.

Finally picked up First Order Storemtrooper.  But this reminds me the old days, when you had to go to the stores at opening time in order to get anything. 

I picked up the Wampa set.  I never saw it in a store, so I figured this was the prime opportunity to get one.

I'll wait for the Art of..., Visual Dictionary and Incredible Cross-Sections books to reveal some of that.  Those reference books are always good for shedding some light on the functionality of the starships of the SW universe.  The new cannons and antenna look like interesting, functional additions.  As for everything else?  We'll see.

As for the reference books?  One of those TFA books has a cover that's been revealed on Amazon:

Hayden needs the work.  And he's been in the suit before.  It's a physical acting role, and not one where Hayden would have to voice dialogue.  That's James Earl Jones' job.

Now if he's being cast to play a Force Spirit Anakin Skywalker in Episode 8?  Then I can appreciate some of the concerns people might have.  But if Anakin as a Force Spirit is integral to the story?  You can certainly speculate however you want.  From the trailers it seems that someone in the Sequels is a devotee to Darth Vader, seeing how the melted Vader helmet & mask are set up as an object of worship.  Recasting the Anakin role would damage any sense of continuity

Probably the entitlement generation. Gotta have it NOW!

I like CHEWIE's theory over at Yakface, that Hasbro miscalculated how many figures to make, so they're focusing the supplies on single carded figures.

I think it's something like that, but not that precisely.

More likely?  The number of pre-orders exceeded the expectations of both Hasbro and Amazon. And rather than have a number of customers grouse about why they didn't receive their order while others did, I think Hasbro and Amazon opted to delay the release so that they could meet expectations for the pre-orders.
