Agreed, I think not all is in there...  I think this is also something of a "preview" of sorts too. :x

Yeah the BB8 set interests me, and the Chopper set because I would like to own a Chopper figure at some point...  I can't recall off-hand all the others now.  ::)

I do recall Han/Leia not looking so swift though.  These were a mixed bag of good/bad, like they always seem to be.

The frontal image seems to imply a slice down the center of the cockpit so I'm guessing it does open...  It comes off in one piece I think, and voila.  Looks about as spacious as most of the other Falcons have been, which isn't to say very much.

I like that they made one of the bunks functional.  Goofy, but funny.

I was kind of thinking similar but it doesn't look as dumbed down as the Rebels toys which I recently saw defended like they were the second coming recently, and I just don't get it...  That AT-DP collapses every bit as easily as the AT-ST does/did and it's less easily fixed IMO.  The TIE was kind of neat, but my love ended there really.

The reasoning to scale these Speeders down escapes me I guess.  They look as though they'd have fit the boxes they're made to even if they'd been the SLIGHTLY larger sizes they'd have needed to be, but hey whatever.

I see potential in the Snowspeeder as a "speederjeep", something I've always kind of enjoyed as a Star Wars concept of sorts...  West End Games had something out and even made a miniature of it back in the day, but I like this design more.  Basically a small utility vehicle.  And this looks BETTER than those Rebels ships...  IE: less of a printed plastic sheet, and little more detailed.  I don't care for that color, but I can change that.  It looks like there's separate details and things I can work with at least.  Slightly smaller than its on-screen counterpart, but I'll work with it, and given how little ST stuff I'm likely picking up I'll happily move it into my OT scenes with some Stormies in it. :)

The other Speeder, which shall remain nameless for spoiler's-sake, looks like something out of the road warrior.  Weird but cool.  Again, definitely truncated but not by a huge margin so I don't get WHY.   The box looks like it would've handled the slightly larger size, but hey whatever.

Hasbro just made everyone take all th links down this we weren't bothering with all the news links.  ::)

It's our now...  The party is spoiled.

Actually doesn't seem like a lot of spoilerish material in any of it.  All mostly trailer stuff.

Anyway on these vehicles I'm a little bummed they scaled them down at all.  Totally unnecessary IMO.  I'm into both speeders shown but both need a lil work IMO so they'll be projects for me.  Steps above what we've been getting of late though perhaps.  Tough to say in pics.

Exactly...  The playset portion is really fun looking actually and detailed.  :)

It's the big ticket toy of the iconic ship for kids this year like 1978.

No, Making Star is who showed them off I believe.  JTA Yakface and others linked them and were told to remove the links.  Sandtroopers then took Making Star Wars' images (which were all catalog images and very clear) and hosted them on Facebook for some reason and they were told to remove them I'm assuming as they are gone now as well.

They're gone ATM...

I imagine everyone would just be complaining.

I liked some I saw, not some other stuff.  I'm basically where I was.  I just have a more clear sense how downsized the 2 Landspeeders are though. And Reys Speeder is AWESOME looking IMO.

Little disappointed to see my only crack at Chopper will be in a friggin 2 pack too.  :(

Ugh at holes in the back unless they're small.  I like that TIE pilot tho.  Poe not so much.  I'm on for a TIE Pilot though right now.

And according to collectors it will fail and is further sign of the apocalypse.

Not every kid will have $100+ to drop on a bmf.  Falcon frenzy will need satiated.  I think kids will like something like this then.  I don't buy kids might.

That hero series falcon sold well here over the holidays.  I saw a guy make one into a model and it's really quite decent for the price.  Just not made to interact with 4" figures at all.  Still was a good toy on its own.

Yeah plus he's the most unique fig of the 3 clones and I dare say that didn't hurt his popularity either.

I'd personally like to see 06-07 levels of articulation return and a 9.99 price at most.

I love and still buy figs like the rots Royal guards, saga ATAT driver or Death Star gunner...  I'm fine with that being the "standard" on articularion.  Likewise if they want to do less on some and more on others that's fine too.

I can't say I like 5poa at all...  I prefer figures I can pose and enjoy more.  I like that but I also don't new a freakin artists maquette either.  I've said before, but for me that 30AC line was just a dream toy line.  Near perfection in every way.  And in other ways, perfect balance too. 

I will be buying some TFA but not much.  I'm not upset by that though either.  Toys just aren't important enough to me to have a meltdown over it as a topic.  I wanna buy stuff I like but I have other interests too, to spend on, so if Hasbro disappoints me I just shift $ elsewhere.

And some of it is kinda near looking too.  I'm sure I will wait for some sales and I have damn near $300 in points at Kmart so I don't plan on spending a lot either way, but I know I want some of the stuff I've seen so far.

If you were in this hobby any length you know there was worse.  To me 2002 was far worse.  Maybe it's just me though.
