Wow.  They're going to the Shadow scheme already?  It makes me think that they're tooling budget might be really stretched thin.  This set LOOKS cool, but the cynic in me sees this for what it is:  a repaint set that's being pitched as a cool army building exclusive.

I think the Probe Droid would be absolutely AMAZING in the 6" scale.  It would be foolish for Hasbro to not pursue that one.

The snarling Chewbacca is somewhat understandable.  I really, really like the Early Bird version.  But how often did you see Chewbacca that placid?  His best scenes are the ones where he was snarling.

Still, there was a way that Hasbro could have done this and made it a little more interesting.  Give him the Imperial blaster rifle and manacles for the Detention Block breakout.  That would distinguish this version to the point of making it a little more interesting.

Long live the blue coat and all you brown coats will get yours when they release him as a single. Wait for it.

+1

Brown coat Han is probably going to be a con exclusive.  Or packaged with a 6" scale Imperial Probe Droid.

And what's up with Darth Luke's face?  I think the PotJ one was a good sculpt

The head sculpt on that POTJ figure was cool, but the rest of the figure was approaching salt and pepper shaker status.  I can appreciate the update for the sake of articulation.  But I want to see some better photos of the face sculpt.  That's the make or break feature on the Dagobah Force spirit Darth Vader.

Ah, here we go courtesy of GH's facebook images:

Is there a slit in the belly?  Kind of looks that way, but could be wrong.  This Tauntaun better smell as bad on the inside as on the outside.

Not cut belly for the tauntaun.  The live tweeting from the session confirmed that.

I can almost feel the gentle breeze from the backpedalling now...

LOL!!!!!!!!!!!!!

The 6" reveals are alright.  But not worth evacuating one's colon.

All I know is, if I don't soil myself badly in the next hour and a half, I am going to feel utterly shortchanged after all these months of excretory anticipation.  :D

Someone particular has been teasing that there's a soil-worthy moment on it's way, haven't they?  Would that be someone who uses as pseudonym for site reporting, as well as book publications?

The regular version of the White Walker looks pretty cool.  I hope that at some point we get the Night's King White Walker that was saw in season 4, too.  The glowing feature seems like it would be more along the lines of something from the books.

A little under 90 minutes until the Hasbro panel commences at SDCC.  Anyone willing to go out on a limb with a prediction?

So how does the glowing feature look?

I have to think that the pre-orders were part of a formula for Walgreens to determine demand.  Since these sold out in a single day, perhaps Walgreens will be prepared to increase the size of their order.

There's also the matter of the Disney store.  Of all brick & mortar retail, they've started to be a go-to destination for Star Wars figures.  And TBS basic figures sell there for $10.99 each.
