Yeah, other than exclusive prints/art, I think Hallmark is the only one to announce any Star Wars exclusives:

Hallmark - itty bitty Tusken Raider and Bantha (300 per day); Wampa Keepsake Ornament (200 per day)

LEGO will be there, but I haven't seen them announce anything yet.

It sounds like a MAJOR, movie-ruining Episode VII SPOILER has hit the net.  The story (but not the spoiler apparently) can be found HERE

It's making me seriously consider staying out of this thread (and off facebook and the JediDefender Twitter feed) for the next year to do everything I can to avoid having the movie ruined...  :-\

I could be wrong, but based on the placards in the hasbro display it appears that:

Clone Trooper Sergeant
TIE Fighter Pilot

are all scheduled for December 2014.

From the pre-orders that popped up this weekend, it looks like the repack that will be joining them is...  ROTS Obi-Wan.

Is Hasbro doing a Q&A?

All they have confirmed so far is that there will be new product on display.  There has been no confirmation yet on who (if anyone) from Hasbro's Star Wars team will be there. 

If it's just Hasbro's PR group and no one from the Star Wars team is there, I doubt any sort of Q&A will be worthwhile.  If Star Wars guys show up, then I'm sure we'll be asking them some things.

Watched it today with one of the boys.  Really well done.  Not sure I'm a fan of the animation style, but the story was pretty good and it seems a lot kid friendlier than Clone Wars.  Clone Wars started out so mild, but just got darker and darker as they lost kids but kept the adults.  And no "Skyguy" and "Snips" cringe-worthy dialogue for the most part.

The possibility of a preview figure(s) might fly in the face of that level of secrecy.  I get the feeling that the LFL licensing people and Hasbro would like the opportunity to cash in on preview merch, but if the ethos of secrecy is making it's way throughout the Disney/LFL organization, then I think it's likely that any preview items might be limited to characters we already know.

Yeah, they could do a "Jedi Master Luke" or "Old Han Solo" figure as a preview pretty easy without spoiling any of the new characters...  Even a Ep7 Stormtrooper wouldn't too big a spoiler.

I'll be attending NYCC this year, including Hasbro's 'Twas the Night Before party on Wednesday October 8th, so I thought I'd start up a thread...

The Hasbro party invite is promising "new reveals" for Star Wars - sure hope that means NEW new reveals and not just stuff they've already teased or shown in press pics.   :P

I'm excited to be going to NYCC this year. 

Got my press pass approved back in August, should be at the show on Thursday, Friday and maybe Saturday AM if anyone wants to meet up. :)

No kidding.  I am so glad I never got into 12" figures.... they look amazing though.

Does this mean that my BMF Falcon is now less accurate?

Yes, because the Falcon also sports a rectangular sensor dish.  ;)

Stupid Lando.  I hope he at least paid for the new dish after smashing the old one.  >:(

That said, the BMF is still perfectly accurate for an OT Falcon...  I'm looking forward to buying the Hasbro Ep7 BMF with updated sensor dish and whatever other "special modifications" Han and Chewie have made since ROTJ.  ;D

This past weekend, the Walgreens toy buyer tweeted that solid cases of eight 6" ProtoFetts will hit over 5,000 stores starting in November.

Nice to know that 40k more are on the way for those that are struggling to get one...
