I personally like the theme of some Imperial Officers.  Notably, the TESB officers like Ozzel, Veers and Piett if they could be re-done using the Needa body.  Captain Lennox and Lieutenant Sheckil would be cool additions.  And I've personally been wanting to get the Asteroid Victim Imperial Officer hologram, too.  The great thing is that they all fall under the theme of the Imperial Death Squadron under Vader.

And I've been hoping that Hasbro would follow through with that Funeral Pyre Vader ever since I saw the mockup at SDCC.  I can't believe they showed that as far back as 2009!!!  But now with the whole Kylo Ren fixation on Vader's burnt helmet?  I think there might be a place for this set.

Here's an interesting article from Forbes where Hasbro says TFA Luke is coming, and they also admit that the Force Friday mishaps last year were their fault.

I finally got around to reading this.  And I find it astounding that the so-called "Mystery Box" was so all-encompassing that the people at Hasbro only saw Luke when the film was released!

The news about the Ghost is a little disappointing, but not totally unexpected.  REBELS is a cool show, but I don't think there's enough interest in the marketplace to support a Ghost vehicle that's even as big as the TFA Falcon.

Most of all, this passage was interesting:

...they plan to make a big announcement in the near future regarding the super-articulated 4-inch figures that are currently exclusive to Walmart.

I hope we're going to get some good news on this front.  Time will tell, I suppose.

Has anyone seen better pictures of the Black Series 6" unmasked Kylo Ren?  Because the scant images I saw of it in the package I could not see the Kylo Ren helmet or the melted Darth Vader helmet.

I have one of these in-hand now. (Thanks again, Hasbro!)

The Kylo helmet is an alternate head (may be the same as the first Kylo basic 6" release head? I don't have a 6" Kylo to compare, sorry) and not a true "removable helmet" for the figure.  Here's a pic of melty Vader helm -


Thanks, Jeff.  I probably should have been more specific in my initial post, because I was curious about the general release version.  It was on display in the package at SWCE in London, but I don't think that version was on display at SDCC.

Basically, I was just curious if the general release version of Kylo Ren includes either helmet.  I figured the banner would not be included, but I really wanted to know mostly about the Vader helmet.

I have to look at the whole "3 picture deal" thing with a degree of skepticism.  I mean, isn't it pretty standard at this point for studios to sign talent to multi-picture deals in the event that one is a tremendous success?  That way they secure the actors... just in case.  Lots of the actors involved in the Marvel cinematic universe were signed to multi-picture contracts.  I think that the executives at Disney probably pushed for these sort of contracts since the MCU now has some 11 films under it's umbrella, and they seem to have similar plans for the Star Wars universe.

As for this being a trilogy?  I think that might be wishful thinking on the part of the writer.  But what about other projects?  I could see Han Solo being worked into a Boba Fett film if that project makes it's way out of development.

Interesting read.  It doesn't sound like it's set in stone at the moment, but an interesting prospect.

The hull number on Discovery seems to predate that of Enterprise on TOS by a significant timespan.  Discovery's designation is NCC-1031.  The Enterprise's hull number is NCC-1701.  So it seems that this ship may be from at least a generation before that of the TOS.

What gets me about this series?  It's reportedly going to be available on Netflix (which I have), but *NOT* in the United States or Canada.  And I really don't want to sign up for another streaming video service.  I feel like I'm being nickle and dimed to death as it is!

Actress Brie Larson has been confirmed to play Captain Marvel!  The news came at the Marvel Cinematic Universe panel at SDCC last night, and Brie Larson received a standing ovation following the announcement.

USS Discovery First Look.

Ugly. What was the last decent looking ship? Voyager?



The aft section of the ship looks... Klingon!

It looks like there might be some kind of action/Nerf feature on the AT-ACT.  I just looked at some of the Galactic Hunter pictures that Dan Curto reposted, and there's some sort of hatch on the nose of the AT-ACT.  Hmmmmm....

Toy Ark has some pretty good images of the entire ROGUE ONE diorama.  And I can distinctly make out both the Shore Trooper as well as the Armor Trooper.

Glad to see that a couple of figures on my own list got confirmed by Hasbro today.  I'm looking forward to both Qui-Gon Jinn and the Emporer's Royal Guard in a big way.  And it looks like they did them pretty well.

Still, I am very surprised to see that Jaina Solo won the poll.  She really got that much support?  Perhaps I personally underestimated the popularity of an NJO character like hers.

Looking interesting so far, albeit all of the figures look like they're 5 POA.  From what I can see it looks like these are the figures on tap:

BASIC FIGURES
-Imperial Stormtrooper
-Imperial Death Trooper
-Imperial Shore Trooper

AT-ACT PACK-INS
-Bunker
-Jyn Erso
-Imperial Astromech droid
-Imperial Armor Trooper (not sure of the exact name here.  But this looks like the same type of trooper that's in that Hover Tank in the Jedah scenes from the trailer)

Yoda brings it up, too.  He said in the PT "Hard to see the Dark Side is".  And Palpatine was able to hide in plain sight from the Jedi as well.   But that seemed more like an active attempt to deceive the Jedi.

Other things over the years have come into question.  Like in KOTOR with both Revan and the Jedi Exile.  Both of them were supposedly cut off from The Force by the Jedi.  I don't think the story group has said at this point if either of those stories are canon or not.  But those plot points from the games do make you wonder a bit about The Force.
