I have the 4 different 6" versions of Vader on order: Hasbro, MAFEX, Revoltech and Bandai.

Which Bandai Vader - the Movie Realization Samurai or the 1/12 Model Kit Vader?  And don't forget about the Bandai SH Figuarts Vader, which will be going up for pre-order in the near future! ;)

It's 2014 and still no new Han Solo figures in the collector quality, 3.75" basic figure line. :(

Do you realize that the last 3.75" basic figure Han Solo we got on a card was 2011's TVC Revenge of the Jedi Endor Han (and he was a kitbash, not even a fully new figure).   Just think about it.  That means I haven't added anything to my Wall of Single Carded Han Solo figures for THREE years!  THREE!  Not cool, man.  Not cool at all.   :'(

I'm not really a "you owe me" type of guy, but... you owe me, Hasbro.  2015 better be the year of AMAZING 3.75" Han Solo figures

You can be honest with me, Hasbro - you set me up didn't you? 

Not announcing all those new Han figures at SDCC and then showing them off at NYCC where I could ogle them in-person?  Well played.  ;)

I admit - 2015 is shaping up to be a good basic carded Han year with a single carded Black Series 3.75" ESB "Pre-Freeze" Han Solo and Carbonite Block set and a single carded Saga Legends 3.75" Bespin Han Solo.  And there's even a bonus Mission Series 3.75" Hoth Han Solo as well.

Nice work Hasbro.  Hopefully Episodes 7-8-9 will help you keep fresh Hans in the line-up for years to come.  :)

Your Pal,

Look for pre-orders to hit soon.  Keep an eye on BBTS (for US orders) or HLJ (for import orders).  I'll toss up the links when I see them. ;)

Star Wars Revoltech #002 Stormtrooper Pre-Orders -
- BBTS = $64.99

Haven't seen HLJ post him yet, but I'll add a link once it pops up...

That's cool and all but why did they just make a blue 6" Hoth Han too?  Seems like the new team might be  a little misguided :-\

So they can sell you a brown one later, of course.  $$$$$$

Absolutely amazingly, I found Frankenberry locally this morning.   :o 

It's a Halloween miracle!  :D

So do we know if the phase II Shock Trooper commander that was shown at NYCC is Commander Thire or Commander Thorn?

The Hasbro press photo was named B1061SW_CW_Clone_Command_Thorn.jpg, so Thorn it is.

It is definitely a dark blue.  Not brown at all. Remember they are striving for "Kenner nostaligia" and not accuracy on these figures. ;)

I downloaded "Droids in Distress" from iTunes and watched it on the plane ride to NYC.  Not a bad episode, but like Jesse said really fast pacing.  Probably would have been a whole TCW episode to find the weapons, another to steal it, and a third to deal with the weapons and return the droids. :P

Fun to see R2 and 3PO... definitely carried the whole "R2 gets to know and 3PO is clueless vibe" of ANH.  Also interesting to think Bail was using R2-D2 to spy on the empire occasionally.  A fun episode, but fast for sure.

Cutest thing I saw during NYCC:

100% guarantee my 3-year old daughter ends up with them as soon as I see them in a Hallmark store. ;)

I wonder if Mossep skirt has a slot at the side to let him seat on a playset.

I guess you didn't look through our image gallery. ;)

I took a shot of his skirt to show there was no cut and to highlight how well they hid the knee joints on Han and Mosep and Boushh.  That little bit of extra plastic on the front hides the knee joint so well on all three figures.

The Jawas look great, I just find their height kind of odd.

They seem a little tall, but they're not that bad.  There are tall compared to C-3PO who was right next to them, but he was a little small which just makes the Jawas look taller I guess.  In person they're really not that bad.

3 3/4" is always the bread and butter for SW I think.  Even if they go with the 5 POA style (which I hope we get more than that), at least it would continue that scale.

I think it is safe to say that zero 3.75" for Star Wars is never going to happen. Whether they go strictly 5POA or try to keep both 5POA and collector lines remains to be seen I guess.

No new Rebels or Clone Wars figures teased for this line?

Nope...  just OT. 

They didn't discount future Rebels figures, but I kind of got the feeling that Rebels won't have the same range of characters that TCW did.  That's why the Legends boxes are Rebels and Movies figures combined.
