Oh, wow - the guy who has a huge financial interest in these movies succeeding assures us that it's "worth the wait"? Whew! I'm sure he'd totally tell us the truth if he thought they were terrible...

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.
I think I'm looking at it at a slightly different perspective from you Jeff, in that I'm looking at it from a "by the case" standard sort of thing.
But like you said Jeff, a Jawa 2-Pack is a 2-pack in general, and that's a step in the right direction at least even if it's not something I'm giddy about. If it were in a set I had to buy and I wanted the rest, I'm in on that. But what if it were just a Jawa? Or what if it were that Yoda, or R5 droid (And I LOVE droid repaints)? Things start getting funky at that point.
I guess it's not so much the price hike's actual financial impact, especially if figure counts on the year stay similar. I think it's more just how it makes me perhaps a little more critical of the toy itself? Such as Yoda, who I could pass through my nitpicking because the backpack, the gear, and all that made it cool and fun to me. But $2 more and I'm looking at it and thinking Yoda's more an accessory that should've been packed with Luke (I'm kidding... sorta. ).
Jedi News also mentioned that they had to sign a non-disclosure agreement in order to check out the Hasbro offerings.
