Noticed that the Walmart report at Yakface has $6.93 price stickers on these figures.  That's cheaper than what's been reported for Target and TRU ($7.99).

Also, it is sounding more and more like these assortments (B3445 Jungle/Space and B3963 Snow/Desert) are indeed the "basic" figure line.  Those holding out hope for slightly cheaper $6 figures with no "build-a-whatever" part may be out of luck...  unless they are planning cheaper versions for overseas or the dollar store markets.

Noticed the Speederbike has that "Forest" aurabesh log and tree image on it.

Yeah, the "Armor Up" figures seem to be broken up into the Forest/Space/Snow/Desert groups like the basic figures for whatever reason.  Maybe kids are too dumb these days so they have to flat out tell them "these toys go together" or something?  :P

Ah, so this is the "Star Wars 7 Class I Deluxe Vehicle Assortment".

Maybe?  I've seen some people say it's "Class I Deluxe" and others call it Class II.  The TRU rumor lists went -

Class I
Class I Deluxe
Class II
Class II Deluxe

But now there is some speculation the TRU rumor ilst had exclusive listed too and maybe those "deluxe" listings are the exclusives?  Not sure really... 

Any idea what the price point is on this segment?

If it's Class I Deluxe - $24.99
If it's Class II - $29.99

Not sure yet... trying to get someone to get me a pic/scan of the UPCs so I can get them verified with my Target contacts...

What the Hell?


Look at how tiny that must be...  this can't be part of the 3.75" stuff, can it?  ???

Yeah, that's an odd collection of characters in that image.  But like others have said, some great acting cred in there...  I have hope this will be awesome.

Funny to see the cast shot... should put to rest some rumors since none of them are obviously Hera or Ahsoka.  I suppose there is a chance that one of them is Sabine, Kanan or Ezra though.  :-X

The Sequel Trilogy / Re: Star Wars Episode IX

Disney/Lucasfilm finally confirms the rumor that's been floating around all summer - Colin Trevorrow will direct Star Wars: Episode IX.

The leaks continue!  This Facebook Page has boxed pics (not the best pics, but pics nonetheless) of the first five 6" TFA figures -

01 - Finn (Jakku)
02 - Rey (Jakku) & BB-8
03 - Kylo Ren
04 - First Order Stormtrooper
05 - Chewbacca

Nice to see BB-8 as a pack-in since I know a lot of folks were not wanting to plunk down $22 for the little guy by himself...

So, going back to the original RS rumor report...

This was confirmed at SDCC:
- SW E7 3.75" Figure Two Pack Assortment [aka Star Wars Universe; pka Mission Series] ($14.99)

These 3.75" related things have leaked out the past two days:
- SW E7 3.75" Jungle / Space Figure Assortment ($7.99)
- SW E7 3.75" Snow / Desert Figure Assortment ($7.99)
- SW E7 3.75" In Armor Figure Assortment (TBD, rumor $9.99)
- SW E7 Class I Vehicle Assortment (TBD, rumor $19.99)
- SW E7 Class I Deluxe Vehicle Assortment (TBD, rumor $24.99)

So that leaves these 3.75" related things yet to be revealed/confirmed/debunked:
- SW E7 3.75" Basic Figure Assortment (TBD, rumor $6.99)
- SW E7 Class II Vehicle Assortment (TBD, rumor $29.99)
- SW E7 Class II Deluxe Vehicle Assortment (TBD, rumor $49.99)
- SW E7 Starfighter Vehicle (TBD, rumor $49.99)
- SW E7 3.75" Hero Vehicle (TBD, rumor $129.99)

Edit #1 - filled in some rumored pricing from the May 11th RS Rumor Report

Edit #2 - looking at this list again and seeing the case-pack boxes that are turning up on social media, I'm thinking either the RS report has some store excluives mixed in there or something got doubled up.  Some places are reporting the Snowspeeder as a "Class I Deluxe" ($24.99) others are calling it the Class II vehicles assortment ($29.99) because of the text on the case pack box.  Hmmm...

From the Yakface Facebook Page - First Order Snowspeeder with First Order Snowtrooper Officer

From Twitter.  Still no confirmation on how articulated or what scale they are...

In the back of the box shot for the Assault Walker, you can see the Stormtrooper SGT is standing up, so he's still a 5POA figure.

For the Speeder Bike Stormie, it's hard to tell, but the back of the box shot sure makes it look like there are probably knee joints in addition to the standard 5POA.

Looks like the "Class I" vehicle concept is back with some very familiar looking choices.  Check out these eBay auctions for pics!

The Force Awakens / Re: The Force Awakens 3.75" Armored/Deluxe Line

Just spent way too much time looking at these blurry figures trying to figure out if "Armored" Poe here is just a repaint of Finn with a new Poe head.

Doesn't really look like it to me (I see differences in the shoulder pad/armor and the neckline of the shirt), but I see a lot of people commenting they think they are the same sculpt. 

I gotta say - I really like these - it's kinda making me excited for Force Friday...
+1  but get rid of the "kinda"

Agree 100%.  I am way more excited for Force Friday now compared to the past few weeks.  Easy to be apathetic and not care when you have no idea what things will be there or won't, what things will look like, etc. Now that I've seen them, I like them. :)

My biggest gripe about the 5POA has been with the figures that are 15th or 16th resculpts.  Repack Bespin Luke and Vader here fall into that category.  I'll most likely buy them to get the "build-a" part... but I won't be too happy about it. I'll just dump Vader and Luke on one of my kids, I guess.

I'm fine with NEW 5POA figures though - I picked up the Rebels stuff, the CW Jedi Temple Guard, etc.  Like I said earlier in the thread - would I prefer a 3.75" SA Kylo Ren to a 5POA Kylo?  Sure... but I'll still buy this one.  Maybe I'm a sucker for doing that, but it works for me.  When they eventually get to a 3.75" SA Kylo Ren, I'll buy that too.  He'll look great in a dueling pose, while this one will still look great standing in front of a row of FO Stormtroopers.

I know Jayson beat me, but I already went to the trouble of typing it up... :P

And here's a look at all of them together...  thanks to Yakface

Rey (Starkiller Base) - Finn (Jakku) - Poe Dameron - Luke Skywalker
Kylo Ren - Captain Phasma - First Order Stormtrooper - Darth Vader
Constable Zuvio - First Order TIE Fighter Pilot - First Order Flametrooper - Resistance Trooper
