Asty and Sarco are cool.  Two army builder repacks from Wave 1... not too bad I guess. 

Still not sure about buying the repacks just to complete the "build-a-whatever" thingy.  Wish I knew if these were just Hasbro creations or from the movie... maybe a combo of both?  Maybe we'll find out on Friday?  :-\

Teppo Ashigaru Sandtrooper Pre-Order at EE - $90 with free shipping.

Too little time is the reason Jeff's not playing hockey anymore (that and he's a scaredy cat).

I'm waiting for the Sphero version of BB-8.

Other than that, nothing.
I'm surprised they are still teasing BB-8 over at the Sphero web site. We all know what it is. Lets just get the video up of it and show us the $150 price tag.

Just like every other licensee, Disney has the gag order out on them.  I'm sure you will hear plenty about it at all your favorite fan sites 12:01 am on 9/4 when the floodgates open and everyone can start talking. ;)

Brian's Toys is a sponsor and a great place to buy many, many Star Wars toys. 

But... not Chopper.

I can sort of forgive the ANH Han/Leia pack.  It allows them to get Han/Leia figures out without being Ep7 versions (like they did with Bespin Luke in the basic line; Jedi Luke in the Armor Up line). 

I can sort of forgive Zeb with Chopper.  No matter who they packed him with, some segment was going to be unhappy about it.  At least they tried to get him out again and hey - $15 is way better than $35 or $90.  Yes, $90 at Brian's Toys.   ::)

The ROTS packs...  there is pretty much no excuses for those though. :P

The undersized corridor detail is amusingly irritating.

What I find funny is, it looks like there is a peg in there.  I guess that's in case you wanted to put BB-8 or maybe Yoda in there since they'd probably be the only figures small enough to get in there.

Does the cockpit open or what?

If you look close, you can see it's got the same style hinge as the Kenner Falcon does, so it must flip-open like the Kenner vintage one.

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

Looking at the pics again this AM, there are a ton of details in there...  hatches/storage spaces, looks like you can put a figure in the "nerf-cannon" turret/station, pegs for figures.

I guess I'm easy to please, but I like it.  I'll be buying one for sure. 

Sounds like Walmart is charging $12.93 for these, which means those $13 price rumors are true.

$13 for a $7 5POA figure and a clip-on armor?  Yeesh.  Those little armors are kind of fun... but not at nearly the price for another whole figure.

Makes sense now why they are in a "box" and not on a card.  If they would have put them on cards next to the $7 stuff at almost twice the price no one would have bought them.

Going to have to think long and hard about buying any of these... probably will only cave for the inevitable Han Solo when they get to him.  :-\

There are some additional press photos floating around out there and those show things that are not in the catalog.  Nor are any of the exclusives shown.  There will be more...

And, before you ask, I am not going to post them since I know I will just be asked by Hasbro to take them down. :(

Speaking of which, the 3PO's eyes didn't look too hot either in the pic, and I just feel like better sculpts of that figure exist anyway.

Well, the Rebels R2-D2/C-3PO mission series set and the OT R2/3PO mission series sets both had the wonky eyes on 3PO, which is why I never bought any of those.

If I find one with nice paint, I'll probably cave... but history has shown they have a hard time nailing his eyes in this low quality paint era we're in now. :(

Few other Tidtibs on this line...

- we're getting a figure for a guy named "Unkar's Thug".  Is it safe to assume "Unkar" (whoever he is) will be getting a figure at some point too?

- apparently some (maybe all?) of these 2-packs (or 3-packs in some cases) will come with a big projectile-firing accessory. Some look cool... others, not so much (just like you would expect from missile-firing accessories).

Here was the stuff shown in the catalog:

- Rebels Zeb & Chopper (repacks)
- ANH Han & Leia (repacks)
- ROTS Obi-Wan & Cody (repacks)
- ROTS Anakin & Yoda (repacks)

- Ep7 R2 & 3PO (repaints)

- Rebels Ahsoka & Vader (NEW)
- Ep7 Unkar's Thug, Jakku Scavenger, & BB-8 (NEW)

The bottom two are the only "must-buy" for me...  3PO and R2 I'll get if they don't look too terrible paint/deco wise.

In some ways I think I would have preferred a Ep7 BMF re-do... but for what this is, I'm kinda glad they put a little effort into making up a new Falcon too. 

Yeah it's got action features and stuff, but I think it looks like a fun toy.  I know my 5yo will be all over this thing... especially the shooting nerf missile thing. :P

MakingStarWars Hasbro Report has a Desert Landspeeder & Finn set listed for this line...  potential movie/character spoilers at the link, so jump at your own risk.

If the rumor reports and teases are correct, we should have our first Class I Vehicle/Figure set sourced from Star Wars Rebels... don't get too excited, it's just a recycled/repainted Clone Wars Class I vehicle.

I'm still hoping they get around to giving us one of those Imp Speeder Bike/Swoops with the cargo pod trailer thingy they spent so much time stealing in Season 1.
