Given the December release of the film, I think we're probably looking at a TFA line reveal either at SDCC or a later special event. And based on past history, I think we could be looking at an October release. And that's still 5 months away. All in all, we seem to be in thoroughly uncharted territory.
This has probably been mentioned here somewhere already, but there are some books with tie-ins to The Force Awakens set for release on Friday, September 4. Maybe that's the day the toys will launch as well? If so, an official unveiling at SDCC seems like a pretty safe bet, but I'm guessing we'll see more leaked images out of the Far East before then, anyway.
