The only EU figure I can't believe they never made that I'd have liked (I'm not into EU) is Jorus C'baoth.

Doallyn has me more geeked than Ree Yees did

Same here, resculpts are nice, and Ree Yees was long overdue, but there's nothing like getting a never-before-made background character after all these years.

He'll be a regular release.  Rumors are that there will be an exclusive version with Salacious Crumb and the dais.  Other rumors that the Dias will be cardboard.

If they don't make a legitimate one, I might try to make one myself...

And this is why I'm not going to bother getting worked up until it's official.

A cardboard dais is a waste of time.

Ha. Okay.  Thanks.

With them being so similar in articulation and without anything for scale I had no idea they were even different sizes.

Another question about the Luke...  I saw these two images in the Hasbro presentation slides:

Is that a variation?  One Legends and one from a Mission Series that I don't know about?  Did one replace the other?

What am I looking at here?

Thanks Nick, I was wondering if it was too early... I've seen the Stormtrooper twice too. 

I'm in that group that just lines everything up.  No action sequences for me, the more neutral the better.  I'm not really looking to buy extra troops anymore, but the completely neutral poses of the Legends stuff doesn't bother me if the sculpts are good.  I still hope that they keep doing the articulated figures at the higher price point, because they're just better toys overall, to me at least.

Part of me is bummed, but mostly about EU characters over PT...  PT, I'm PT'd out at this point.  They're inferior movies, and the toys were overdone.  Maybe just my take on it, but I'm really over that stuff at this point.

I'm bummed about that droid sure, but really that's about it.  I can't think of anything else I care about.  Lots of stuff I'd have LIKED to have gotten, like Office Duel Palps maybe being the only thing I really wish I'd gotten, but otherwise it's really just a lot of stuff I won't miss.  Sometimes I look at my PT stuff and just shake my head at this point.

I'm with you, but I'm thinking that kids in the 10 to 20 range prefer the prequels having grown up with them and Clone Wars in the same way that all of us in our 30's and 40's (and Brent too) prefer the OT.

Which is why I'm hoping the Sequels are good enough to be the new focus... if JJ Abrams does it right, and it sounds like he will, adults and kids are both going to love them.  It'll probably mean less prequel stuff even beyond the sequel-centric years that we're about to see. 

Are any of you guys finding the Jedi Luke?  I haven't seen that or the Fett at all.

Was there a standard-Hasbro style slide show of all the things they were showing?

Seriously though, if anyone doesn't collect the 6" line and finds themselves at SDCC and might be able to help me with a Jabba...  :-\  :-*

I think they were $50 at the convention and more like $150 afterwards.  I'm guessing we can double all of that, $100 at the show, $250 to $300 on the after market.

So i should set aside $300 or so for eBay, check.

If anyone is going and wants to help me out....  :)
