So I'm buying the you know what out of these. Great looking figures. The Scarif trooper is listed as the Squad Leader but this is the grunt version (fine by me). The leader has the blue markings.

Same here. Glad to see we're getting him in addition to the Squad Leader, who is distinguished by the blue stripe he has and the kama it seems. This one also has an ammo pouch or something on his hip. Very cool.

Jyn is a straight repack, which I don't quite get. The Death Trooper is the specialist version with the Sandtrooper like gear. He's different than the mainline release.

Haven't seen any wave 2 or sightings on Twitter.

The Speeder was stocked very heavy at our TRU. Very cool piece. Will definitely have to pick it up down the road. The pilot appears to be all new, a little slimmer than the original and with a ball jointed head.

Didn't see: the U-Wing, though Ben saw some folks with them. A-Wing. Micro Machines. Titanium. The WM exclusive app enabled R2. Every WM had epic amounts of 6 inch, Hot Wheels and Lego. Only one of them had any 4 inch figures of any flavor.

Glad to see all of these as they were high on my want list. The Hover Tank Driver is a great trooper. Really he should be single carded if they're not doing the tank. Two Tubes is a great looking alien and I like Saw. Odd they're dumping them all in a box they're not releasing until April, but they're making them.

Ben and I plan to hit the TRU in Cedar Rapids tonight. Looking forward to a much more involved affair than last year, when we went to Wally World. The people there were nice and fun, but there just wasn't anything out. We got some figures but a lot of people left disappointed. I'm looking forward to the Hover Tank Pilot and the Moroff/Shore Trooper set the most. I'll probably get most of the figures since there's only 7. If wave 2 is out I'll be a bit more selective. I love the ships but I'll be waiting on those a bit. 6 inch I'll wait and see. K2 for sure. I have K-Mart points yet so I may hold off on those.

You're going to burn in hell!  ;)

Nice score. Nothing has slipped out here in Iowa as of yet. I keep seeing these scores on Twitter and think the dam will break here any day (not the literal dam hopefully as we're currently in the middle of a flood in Waterloo) but oh well. Looking forward to Friday.

Yeah, unless they somehow move the goal post up to $15 or probably more for a SA figure, I think it will probably be the 5POA stuff too. Which I'd be ok with, for the most part.

Thanks Jeff! Very good article. I'm glad they're tweaking the Retro concept a little. A lot of the initial offerings were all properties I wanted and they just came out very blah. Some great. These look amazing. One line I'd love to see revisited is The Black Hole. I think that would make for a gangbusters series for Reaction.

I need them all.

I continue to be surprised at the immunity of my local K-Mart. It's got to be one of the last in Iowa. I appreciate them enduring, as they've been reliable for the exclusives at least. Sad for the others and the employees. K-Mart was the place back in the 80's for toys. Tons of memories from there.

My God. The Dark Crystal set. I don't have the previous set yet but I guess I'm looking for it now. I think my brother - who doesn't collect toys at all but is a massive GG fan - would probably buy these.  ;D

I'm sort of thinking the Jyn we get will be the Ground Crew outfit, if only because it will double as a generic crew member. I wouldn't mind it but would also appreciate just about any costume she wears as they're all pretty neat. Cassain - ditto. I think locks for this line are K2 and the Death Trooper. I would imagine we'll see a new SA Stormtrooper as well.

Looking forward to this one. The figure looks great. As for a companion piece, it's probably going to be some villain, so I'll say a Death Trooper, some trooper we haven't seen yet, or Vader, if he decides to go rock climbing.

Considering they seem to be waiting for spring to announce/show this hypothetical new 6 inch vehicle, it's probably from ANH. If so, most likely the X-Wing. Maybe a Imperial TIE, but I'd rather see something different.
