I wonder if this isn't a 6 inch set, because I kind of don't see where a Probe droid / Vader set would fit in within the 3.75 line. I mean it could be an exclusive so what do I know. I loved that thing so curious to see what's up with it.

I'm glad to see the statement too and I think the sensitivity of the issue warranted it. I think it also likely means Leia will exit the series in VIII and they'll rework the ending somehow to accommodate that. I just think there's too many hurdles otherwise to achieve what apparently was a substantial role in IX. Breaks my heart having to talk about any of this really.

One of my initial reactions in Rogue One was the we hear in the end credits the very music that was in the end credits of Star Wars Episode 3: Revenge of the Sith, Star Wars Episode 4: A New Hope, and Star Wars Episode 6: Return of the Jedi.
Itís a cold and blustery Friday here in Minnesota/Hoth, and a new rumor has risen over the frozen horizon. The exact details are coded and the source had a self-destruct, but itís a good bet that the Empire (Hasbro) knows itís coming and Darth Vader is seeing to it personally (as a pack-in).
I'm getting Imperial Probe Droid and Vader from this. The optimist in me wants this to be a Star Destroyer or Hoth playset. Or is this going to be a 2-pack? Hmmm....

I would expect Disney to deny the story. From a PR/fan relations standpoint it would look insensitive. But I think there's the possibility that the Disney brass having seen ROGUE ONE might consider a digital Leia an option.
I would also think that the Episode IX crew is trying to get a final script together so that preproduction can get underway. These movies take a while to make, and having to work around a major character like this is a big deal. Part of me has been wondering if they're going to rework Episode 8, but I don't know if that's even a reasonable option.
To say that this situation is complicated is a tremendous understatement.
We donít normally respond to fan or press speculation, but there is a rumor circulating that we would like to address. We want to assure our fans that Lucasfilm has no plans to digitally recreate Carrie Fisherís performance as Princess or General Leia Organa.
Carrie Fisher was, is, and always will be a part of the Lucasfilm family. She was our princess, our general, and more importantly, our friend. We are still hurting from her loss. We cherish her memory and legacy as Princess Leia, and will always strive to honor everything she gave to Star Wars.

I thought about the R2/3-PO thing. Very close to being a major continuity error. You could argue the ship hadn't left yet but I want to say someone informed Mothma he had already. Maybe he was about to.
