Same story as the basic Legends I guess (overshadowed by the Black Series stuff), but these looked great too. 

Hoth Han and Luke, Dagobah R2 and Yoda, Stormtrooper Luke and Leia - all great sculpts.  They'd look even better with some more articulation though...  :-X

They were sort of overshadowed last night, but the Legends stuff that Hasbro had on display looked really nice... 

I'm not going to buy Skiff Lando and X-Wing Luke because I already have really nice versions of them, but I'll definitely pick up that Bespin Han for my Han collection. ;)

Got a chance to do this "Super Awesome Me" thing at the Hasbro party tonight...  in a few weeks I should have an Iron Man action figure with my face...  which should be hella weird and unique to display. 

I'll be sure to take pics when it gets here. :D

So would you say the Jawas are 3.75" scale or 6" scale, Jeff?

They are suposed to be 3.75" scale.  They are a little on the tall side, but they were definitely intended to be a 3.75" product. 

As was pointed out on the JD Twitter, they work for the "tall Jawas" at the Lars' homestead scene:

I really, really, really hope the final product turns out as nice as the hard copy on hand tonight... the block, the binders, the articulation.  :-*

This Threepio is just a reissue of VC06, correct?

It's a bit tiny bit of a kitbash, but the base (90%) is the TVC 3PO, yeah.  Definitely the dud of the wave... 

You can get a better look at 3PO in our image database now.

You can see the glued on panels there, but without my TVC 3PO to reference, I couldn't tell you what the "new parts" they said he had were...

Our Hasbro image galleries are going live...  I put up some Marvel and Transformers stuff too, but since I know very little about those lines anymore, I really had no idea what was new or old or whatever.  Clicky the button below to check them out!

Back at the hotel now and working on the nicer pics from my Nikon (though my iPhone did pretty good for the twitter stuff). 

I was so tempted to just grab that Han and run...  :-[

Oh and the Carbonite Block.  Just awesome...  detail on the side panels was great (but... it is a hand painted proto so the final probably won't be so nice :().

ps - I apologize to the 6" collectors because after looking through my pics, I definitely was way more interested taking pics of the 3.75" stuff.   :-X

Just a reminder the #HasbroParty is tonight! 

I'll be tweeting from the event via my @jlsmentek twitter account, but I'll make sure to retweet them on the @jedidefender account as well!

Star Wars Rebels / Re: Star Wars Rebels - 5 POA Animated Style Figs

I can't imagine Rebels did as well as TCW in terms of ratings either.  TCW had the film to launch it, and there was just a lot going on.  This feels very different.

With TCW, it seemed like LFL was looking for "the next big thing" for Star Wars.  With SWR, it seems like Disney is just looking for a bridge to the next big thing - Episode 7. 

Rebels just seems like Disney's way to get kids introduced to OT things - TIE Fighters, Stormtroopers, The Empire, etc.  That's why it won't surprise me if teenage Princess Leia or young Han Solo and Chewbacca end up on this show so kids learn who they are and what "the rebels" are all about to get them primed for Episode 7.  Even a trip where Kanan has to visit Obi-Wan on Tatooine and Ezra "accidentally" runs into 13-yr old Luke on an adventure wouldn't surprise me.

Yeah, I agree that Hasbro/Disney are missing the boat by not having a bunch of stuff ready for Rebels launch... but I always kinda got the sense that Disney/Hasbro was happy to miss this boat (putting Rebels figures in with Legends figures...  again seeding the kids with OT stuff) while they construct the SUPER-MEGA-ULTRA-SHIP they will be launching this time next year. :P

I haven't watched "Droids in Distress" yet, but I guess you can download it for free on itunes now too...  might have to try that when I get home tonight so the kiddos can watch it over and over even when we're away from wi-fi. :P

Yeah, it was a bad sign when many etailers weren't even taking pre-orders on the basic Rebels/Legends figures until last week...  and most of those etailers have a November arrival date now.

Revo Stormtrooper Update

Quote
Joining Kaiyodo's Revoltech Darth Vader is this loyal Stormtrooper. Using their patented joint system, this soldier of the Empire can do a ton of poses with his included blaster rifle and long range gun. Coming January 2015 for 5,200 yen.

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. ;)

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.
