Excedrin migraine, for when the right side of my head feels like it's on fire.

Thanks for the kudos, all.  The scans really don't do the Vader figure justice.  I'm going to have to do some photo analysis to determine just how much articulation this Darth Vader has.  It looks like the best one to come down the pike since the MOTDS sculpt, IMO.

Yeah, but you can pretend that Nomar is trying to spike Jeter at second.

Don't despair, Mikey!  There's also a 2-pack Nomar that's packaged with Jeter.

when do you guys think they will start working on EPIII figures?  Do you think they already have a list of some sort?  

This past August, when I interviewed some of the Hasbro Star Wars team in Chicago, they mentioned that 3 or 4 of their guys were in Sydney, on set.  They were getting the rundown of who the key characters were, what they looked liked, along with scan data from companies like Gentle Giant and 3-d animation  wireframe data from ILM.  They were there for about a week or so, and came back to their offices in Rhode Island to start work this past September.

The launch, conceptualization, design and manufacture of the EPISODE III line is going to take longer than a regular, non-movie year line.  Why?  When this line launches, it's likely to issue a line like this:

-20+ new basic figure
-Approximately 4 deluxe figures
-1 or 2 creatures
-1 or 2 small vehicles
-2 - 3 medium vehicles
-1 Large vehicle
-A possible playset
-3 or 4 12" figures
-roleplay items (lightsabers, blasters, etc)

...and all of this is supposed to hit mass retail on one target date.  And don't forget that there will then be followup basic figures that will be released around the time of the movie release, and more merchandise that will follow through the end of the year.  

A movie year is a big thing to prep for, and considering the way the 2004 line is shaping up, with so many rehashes requiring little or no new design, it's a given that the EPISODE III line has definitely under development since the fall.

What, nobody saw the Toy Fest lineups?  Big news for NFL, NHL and MLB!  Even more, since A-Rod is now a Yank, and needs to be redone.

Silver Armor Iron Man looks pretty cool.  That's the period when i was reading that book, so it's cool by me.  Not sure about the FF and Sinister Six box sets.  Those might be a bit of a reach.  Definitely liking all the X-Men mixed into Legends, except Cable.  I have just never really cared for the character.

So...any of our questions awnserd?

None of the Hasbro-Star Wars team was on hand in NYC for Q&A.  The people giving the tours were from Hasbro Corporate Communications and a PR firm that was hired for the Toy Fair event.

You're very welcome Brent.  I was wondering if you recognized the box, LOL!

It feel positively tropical here, what with 22 degrees fahrenheit right now.  I even had my jacket open today since it was so warm.

Sandcrawler.  Fall.  Target.  Live it.  Learn it.  Love it.

*j/k, Hasbro confirmed the Sandcrawler as a Fall 2004 Target Exclusive during Wizard World in Chicago this past August.

I got one, and this really is a great figure.  It's certainly as tall as my C-3PO.  And who would've thought this figure would get 4 points of articulation?  What, with the head, base and two utility arms that's more than I expected.

From what I hear, the Arwen is different from the one from the horse and rider set.  Is this true?
