Mods, please feel free to move or delete this if there is a duplicate thread out there...I looked for one but couldn't find it any of the the usual forums.
Seems like a pretty low buzz for SDCC this year. I gues the past few years' disappointments have level set expectations somewhat.
What are you guys really hoping to see? Surprise 3&3/4" figs? Next 2 waves of 6" guys? Upcoming store exclusives?
I would really like to see about all of the 6" figures that have been rumored about for the past few months, including Bossk, C-3PO, etc. I know the TIE Pilot is going to be shown too.
That's pretty much it. There are a couple of pieces of information I would love to get confirmation on too though, namely, what is going on with the Anakin/Clone Trooper 6" wave that has been MIA all year, and can they please confirm plans to release the Ghost in the Rebels line?
Is that today or do the exclusives typically show up later or after the convention? I didn't manage to get the Fett last time and can't remember when it briefly showed up.
10/15?!?! Yikes, that is a lot later than first anticipated.
I see a lot of guys over at RS jumping on pre-orders, but we have like 150 Walgreen's in this town and I just don't see this being that hard to find.
Nice to have confirmation on the $19.99 price tag though.
On the new DPCIs that popped up...
#1 - Funny how many people forgot about the army men style Star Wars Command line and start freaking out about the possibility of a Rebels Star Destroyer playset or new 3.75" Rebels Battle Packs or something.
#2 - On the "Class I making a comeback" stuff... seems odd that there would be a DPCI planogram slot for the Class I (which we haven't see confirmed yet), but there is no spot for the Class II vehicles (which we did see at Toy Fair - TIE, walker, Phantom).
-The wing mechanism still looks confusing but the guns at the wing tips show that the top gun fits inside the lower gun's wing mount somehow. There's a curve there... It'd limit the thickness of the wings presumably. Interesting. It looks more now like it splits at the engine too, but it's still hard to see.
I don't see how the wings split. There is no line on the actual wing. The back landing gear would have room to go inside the wings if they didn't split.
I don't think the ship takes an astromech. They would have shown a happy R2 unit up there if it did just to take us all freak out.
