The ERG and Ahsoka are great choices. Ackbar and Lando... I think it's good they're branching out again into secondary characters, because it seemed from the TFA offerings they were sticking to pretty much main characters / troops, but unless there's some tie in logic that comes to light later, they're odd choices. There are highly requested TVC characters that make much more sense in relation to  Rogue One, so yeah. Odd. Glad to see the line rolling along.

Rogue One / Re: Rogue One 3.75" Wave 1

Good call on the Jyn being in the Ground Crew uniform - the sticks seem to give it away. Also the chest box is identical to hers. I really like all these. The Stormtrooper is sick. If this indeed all there is as has been rumored than I'd be very surprised. Doesn't add up though as there are 7 figures which is one too many if they keep with the 2 per case distor they have now. Also, unless someone knows different, aren't there still two 5 POA assortments as there are now? The Rey we saw at SDCC is in the same assortment as these B7072, so either this isn't everyone or she's coming later.

Rogue One / Re: Rogue One Rebel U-Wing Fighter

It's pretty disappointing the primary aspect of the U-Wing (troop carrier) was sacrificed for the NERF thing. Definitely a play value thing for the kids but this is the first vehicle of the new movies where I was like 'I really want that!' Oh, well.

And the eyes! Hopefully that is not a widespread thing.

That's right. Proxima B has a tremendous amount of pros going for it, and some cons, but it is a rocky world within the habitable zone of its star that could support liquid water, so LET'S GO!

Moroff was my most wanted from the Celebration reel so this is great. Amazing figure. The U-Wing is huge, but the troop compartment doesn't appear to be functional, at least from these shots. Great stuff overall. Looking forward to everything.

Seems at least to me the NERF thing is removable. Could be wrong, so pinch of salt and all that.

Maybe (just maybe) one of the most important discoveries of all time:

Hopefully it's confirmed.

Super 8 is good. It's biggest problem is it doesn't capitalize on its own story, which is a running theme with most of JJ Abrams films.

Didn't know that about the LEGO development time. Explains some things, like why Kylo's shuttle was black from the get go from them and not the initial white that Hasbro had on at least the Titanium (changed late in production).

I'm thinking they probably didn't get confused by early art/pics as the Lego version appears to be accurate to the production ship. I'd rather Hasbro went the extra mile and charged the extra $$$ to make a truly representative toy. Probably that's a $100 nowadays. The more I look at the pic, the more I think it's impossible there's any kind of troop compartment under there. The compartment is probably not open or functional. If so that's a huge disappointment.

Stranger Things is outstanding. Best show I've seen in a while. The kids were great. 'Why won't you let me unlock my curiosity door?'

Definitely scaled way down. Glad to see it but the deciding factor to me will be whether there's a troop compartment under there that will accommodate a couple figures. If not, then no thanks. Looks good though. Appears the swept wing feature is present.

Looking forward in a big way to the new series. I'm a huge fan of Bryan Fuller and can't wait to see his take on the show. Not too excited about the prospect of another prequel, but I'm confident in the people running it.
