I'm personally glad they made this a convention exclusive, although I think having this be an online exclusive would have been fine too.

I'm just glad they didn't stick this in stores to warm the pegs.

Yeah I think if it's like a Target thing a pack of repaints for an Arm and a leg would be twice as frustrating.

I was looking at the ebay auction pics of this set today and was a little bit confused when I remembered something.  At Toy Fair in February, Hasbro was hinting that the 2016 SDCC exclusive would be Rogue One teaser item (trooper in exclusive packaging, like they did for TFA). 

This doesn't seem to be a Rogue One item (unless Red Squadron X-Wings of Wedge/Garven/Biggs are part of RO).  What if this set isn't the Hasbro SDCC exclusive, but possibly the TRU SDCC exclusive (like the awesome 6" Han vs Greedo pack they did once upon a time or the mega-3.75" box sets they've done the past few years)?

I guess what I'm saying is that there is still a chance that this set will end up in a store after all...

What makes the UZAY Snowtrooper different from the Kenner (aside from the packaging, of course)?

The most obvious difference is the "cod piece" is black and then the "groin" is white as opposed to the opposite on the Kenner version.

And when I said "thrilled to add THIS", I really just meant any bootleg figure produced by SB Products in the 80s.

The one thing that I took from this leak?  The character name for Ben Mendelsohn's character.  Well, actually his TITLE. 

Ever since the ROGUE ONE trailer broke, people have been going crazy saying "GRAND ADMIRAL!  GRAND ADMIRAL!"  OMG, people have Thrawn on the brain!!!  But if we go purely on movie material, those Imperial uniforms with the white tunics are only seen on officers of the Imperial Security Bureau.  Wulf Yularen has that sort of uni, and he's identified as a Colonel in the ISB.  There are other ISB officers seen on the first Death Star, too.  Well, the title held by Ben Mendelsohn's character is that of Director.  So is he perhaps the Director of the Imperial Security Bureau, tasked with making certain that information about the Death Star is kept secret?  That's certainly what it's looking like to me.

I'm no expert so I wouldn't bet my life on it's authenticity, but I do trust the seller.

Cardback, bubble, skirt all repros. Blaster is vintage Kenner.

Figure is authentic vintage Uzay. Someone colored/painted the shoulders and boots which is wearing off now. But I'm thrilled to add this to my collection finally.

I'll add in that, if they make a nice version of the Hovertank from the trailer (there's a pic of it from the front) I'll be a happy happy collector.  It's essentially a German StgIII from the front profile.  I love it!  One of my fav armor pieces of WW2.  Neat seeing kind of obvious nods to German armor for the Empire.

The fact they did a Hovertank for the Empire and broke up the Walker monotony had me right away.

Cool looking set.  I'm game if it's around $40ish. I feel like I have a lot more freedom to pick and choose what I want from the 6" line, so if its easy to get and well priced, I'm game.  If not, no worries!

Yeah I don't think Davos has killed anyone.  He's always just there, talking.  One of the more "purely good" characters.  I'm amazed he's lasted this long.

I've seen the pics and everythig says "This is not final" on it.  However, very little info I actually in it and what there is I'd say is probably fairly accurate.  It doesn't really spoil anything IMO.
