So are Darth Vader and the Snowtrooper part of the Rebels line or not? They lack the titular branding but are apparently sourced to the movies on the cardback?

Great to see carded images though, have kinda been wondering why these haven't started popping up from the China eBay sellers yet, they have to have shipped out from the factories by now.

Hmm, that's cool of them, but it won't be exactly the same as the first edition. And the packaging looks different too. I do applaud them for acknowledging their audience though.

Hopefully this helps to bring the price down on the SDCC sets too.

Yeah, the problem with making wild underwear claims is that it's just too easy to fall short of that mark and then look silly.  :P

Mosep does seem like a cool choice, but outside of that it's not a whole lot that blows the mind.

Did we really need another TCW-themed Anakin? I don't see how this merits a slot, even if just a repack. There's really not a lot of new territory to mine there outside of the Zygerian Slaver outfit, which is waaay to much to hope for at this point.

I guess Wolffe will be based on his later Clone Wars appearances?

I'm not concerned at all about the new movies, as I am unlikely to buy any of those figures or vehicles, but I do have some concern about how much Rebels stuff will ultimately get released and how much that will compromise my available space. If it's even half the amount of stuff released in the animated Clone Wars line it will be a real challenge.

If you got a carded Fromm for less than $200, you just got a great deal is all! (congrats)

This is about in line with what I would expect, maybe a little pricier given that he is not complete.

Moxie is always a safe bet when in the NE...

Good call. I thought about the cargo net thingy, but the Ewok throne makes even more sense.

Who doesn't want a Jawa carcass though?  ;D

Some news on 2 upcoming BS figures this week apparently...teaser shot of the TIE Fighter Pilot, allegedly in the Yoda wave.

Also, silhouette tease of a Jedi-Con exclusive 6" figure that looks a lot like a protocol droid. No way they do 3PO like that, unless he comes with some kind of extra, but when did he ever sport any accessories?

I guess exclusives are the only way they can get any new figures into circulation anymore, it's been 7 months now with the same 3 figures and I have a growing concern for that Anakin/Clone Trroper wave.

What's up with that crazy ass beard?!? lol

Guess there will be no shortage of bad guys, although it seems we won't be getting much, if any, Vader.

I still wish they would drop the silly names though, that joke has really worn thin.

"Every last figure of this wave of 18 is NOT a carry-forwarded, repacked, or reissued figure. Not one of them."

We'll see. Malgus and Starkiller are clearly carry forwards. How are they going to do an 18+ figure wave?

At any rate, happy to see SA Captain  Rex pop up on the list. Been waiting on him for awhile now.

The nice folks at Barnes and Noble let me take the nifty ReAction figure display box home for free last night. They sold out weeks ago and never re-stocked so I figured it couldn't hurt to ask. Now I have a place to display the swanky Egg Chamber playset if I am every lucky enough to get my hands on one.  :)

Read it last night...sigh. Why is that shrewish hosebag even still alive? The first thing Dumbledore's Army should have done after defeating Voldemort is round up all the collaborators like Skeeter, Umbridge, the Malfoys, etc and just have them mass executed.  >:D

Seriously though, was a fun read, I miss these characters. I liked the mention about Lupin's son. Little disppointed Neville and Luna did not end up together though, that seemed like a good match.

So THIS is the new scaled WD toy they have been hinting at...are these more like the 2" GOTG figures?

The environments look cool, but I'm not sold on the concept either. I guess it's more like hyper realistic Legos?

Not sure if I have the space or $$$ to jump in on these, but it's an intriguing concept...I applaud them for trying something new at least.

Not sure how I missed this, but apparently there was another 18" figure announced by NECA last month: Battle Damaged Gypsy Danger with Plasma Cannon (sorry, no link...I saw it over at Neca's home page though) I believe the estimated date of arrival was September?

Would have preferred another Jaeger or Kaiju rather than a variant at this point, but it looks cool nonetheless. Sigh, guess I will have to find more room somewhere...

Chest Rockwell FTW! Lol

I hope to see this figure in a store one day...
