Maybe screen accurate was the wrong phrase...

More technically accurate?

No, i think you were right the first time. Brian Flynn said this himself over at RS.

Dang, I need that Predator figure too.

The actor who was cast as the High Sparrow was JUST ON GoT last season in a totally different role though wasn't he? Doesn't that seem confusing?

Wasn't he the dude the Hound killed who proclaimed "Dying's thirsty work!"

Yeah, I pretty much knew it was going to be different, that's why I wanted the SDCC one so bad, more movie-faithful, IMHO.

I have been researching this, and I believe I have concluded that there are at least SIX (6) different blind bagged "mystery figures":

Kane - Spacesuit
Kane - Chestburster
Ripley - Spacesuit
Ripley - Plain
Alien - Plain
Alien - Clear

The Aliens were clearly shortpacked because there are almost none of them for sale on eBay right now, plenty of the other guys though. I believe I got the Ripley Spacesuit and Chestburster Kane in my preorders.

So not easy to be a completist with this line, but it's great stuff IMO.

According to JTA's Hasbro Q&A, ANH Leia is coming in this line...hopefully long after her previous version has sold through.

According to JTA's Q&A, the rumored Mission Series 2-pack with Ahsoka and Anakin has been cancelled.  :(

This had the potential to be pretty cool, little disappointed on this...

I love the shadow stuff. I'm in for a few of these.

Me too! 

I know it's not everyone's cup of tea but if they have to do mix in repaints I am happy enough they went with these.

I still wonder if C-3PO will end up being the jedi-Con exclusive and maybe they stick the Emperor in this slot instead? It seems crazy to release a main character as an exclusive, but they could always go the Boba Fett route I guess and throw in some extra swag before the inevitable mainline release.

Thanks a lot brother, I was able to score one of these on the way home from work today! He definitely looks cool,  looking forward to trying out the glowing feature tonight. I was hoping for more of a traditional fluorescent green rather than the blue accents, but I guess blue fits better with the character.

I could be wrong, but based on the placards in the hasbro display it appears that:

Clone Trooper Sergeant
TIE Fighter Pilot

are all scheduled for December 2014.

Han Solo (Stormtrooper Disguise)

are both scheduled for February 2015.

So it would appear there are two separate waves here, with one additional figure yet to be confirmed for February 2015. (Maybe the Emperor?)

Well, I just woke up with clean underpants, so I call shenanigans on that BS.  :D

Looks like some really nice looking stuff, and a few decent surprises in there. Random thoughts:

Rex, Doom and Gree all came out very well...the paint jobs are rough but i realize these are just crude samples.

Commander Wolffe looks terrific too, but what happened with Commander Thorne? No mention or sightings?

I am literally buying every Jedi Temple Guard I can get my hands on. That is an insanely cool sculpt, if only he could bend his elbows!

For Rebels, I think the only real "new" stuff they hit us with was the Troop Transport and that Sabine/Stormy 2-pack, but that is fine, there was a lot of focus there overall and I am looking forward to seeing these on the shelves this Fall. Everything they showed off looked cool, nice color palettes, and man, that AT-DP driver rocks!

So much 6" love! (yesthatswhatshesaid) Holy mother, the TIE Pilot is off the chain...that guy is gonna fly off shelves. The Wampa and Tauntaun deluxe sets were likewise outstanding. They do seem to be getting better with the human sculpts. That Han Stormtrooper is just an amazing piece of work. And the helmet fits!

Count me in for the Shadow Squadron exclusive, it's only a question of how many can I restrict myself to buying. That's a cool idea, I could really army-build me some of those Black Stormtroopers....

Nice that we got confirmation of the Emperor, but no mention of 3PO? Does this back up the speculation that he will be the Jedi-Con exclusive?

I can't say I'm disappointed, I didn't expect too much this year, definitely not underwhelmed. Or overwhelmed either.

Yep, if you talk the talk, you damn sure gotta walk the walk.  ;)

I can almost feel the gentle breeze from the backpedalling now...

I just paid $21.99 for a 6" Stormtrooper at Kroger. (Grocery store chain) Their 4" stuff was priced as usual though. ruh-roh

All I know is, if I don't soil myself badly in the next hour and a half, I am going to feel utterly shortchanged after all these months of excretory anticipation.  :D

Yeah, i noticed the same thing when I looked it up too, but I am skeptical. This could be one of those deals like Target where all the figures are under one generic DPCI code. I'll definitely hit a few B&N's up today just to be sure though. Will report back later...
