Don't write off 6" Jabba too quickly. 

OK, sure, maybe write off the SDCC version, but the regular 6" Jabba release should get pretty cheap when they start piling up at Amazon because everyone is buying up the Scout/Bike sets and leaving the Jabbas.   :-X

So... the "dais/crumb" hints at Toy Fair seem to have been costed down to just Crumb, Hooka/pipe/bowl, and box that doubles as cardboard dais.

I can hear the fan rage coming already...

Courtesy of Sandtroopers - Movie Mission Series sneak peek!  click here for the giant-size pic

Pics are just placeholders, but it looks like there are plans for:
- Wicket & Biker Scout
- Bossk and IG88
and a few more... but I can't tell if they'll just be repacks or new figures (Cody, Anakin, Obi-Wan, etc).

Ducks, Sharks, Blackhawks and Wild (homer pick! ;D)

Bruins, Habs, Rangers, and B-Jackets (sorry Jesse :()

75% in each - was looking good in the West until the Sharks decided to choke a 3-0 series lead.  Over in the East, I'm glad for Jesse's sake his Pens escaped, but I gotta tell you with all those blown 3-1 leads in that series, it really could have gone either way until they finally woke up and started playing...  even then the Pens almost coughed up a 4-goal lead in game 6. :-\

This round, I'll go -
Kings (Ducks are too banged up now I think)
Chicago (it breaks my heart to type that, but if Kuemper is really hurt and our goalie is Bryz/Curry?  :'(  I'll be happy if I'm wrong though!)
and
Bruins (and it'll be an ugly, ugly nut-spearing, elbowing, dirty-hittin' affair before it's over)
Penguins (assuming Sid wakes up and Flower doesn't wilt)

I see a few more on BBTS today.   Said it before, but man are these some nice looking figures.  Can't to get my hands on the alien soldier to test the quality.

Even if the characters are canon does it mean that Hammerhead was a plant loving hippy named Momaw Nadon or not?

Excellent question.  Are Ohwun/Chachi De Maal, back to being Ellors Madak/Baniss Keeg, or are they nerfed all the way back to just "Duros"?  Or is that even Legends, so now they're back to being "Goggle-Eyes" as they were called in the SW call-sheet for the cantina?

These are definitely the types of things we should be worrying about.

For some reason I'm less concerned with the actors in this thing and more concerned with the story.    After all, TPM had some actors I really loved and was excited about and well... look how that turned out. :P

EU was NEVER canon, and that's my point.  There was NEVER a hierarchy to it...  It was always what Lucas said, and the rest was bunk if he decided.  LFL was pretty clear on this, as was Lucas himself. 

Agree.  Whether you call it "Expanded Universe" or "Legends" it's all still just a bunch of stuff that might have happened to the Star Wars characters until a movie or TV show overrode it. 

For me personally, I don't really care if ALL expanded universe is immediately Star Wars Legends or just post-ROTJ or whatever.  At the end of the day, I'm still going to see the EU as the "real" Star Wars continuity until something over-rides it.

So, even though the marriage of Han and Leia and the Anakin, Jacen, and Jaina that resulted from it is now immediately "Legends", it's still the post-ROTJ story of Han Solo until I have something else.
