Whats the deal with the POTJ cardback in there?

To further confuse the folks standing there thinking, "Is it July 2004 again?" with all of the rehashes...

They brought a bunch of older carded figures from the various assortments to show how their new cases would work with pretty much everything out there.

Saw a good pic of them last night, but can't find it now.

So yeah, that's why.  (Well, either that, or those are the new prequel retro vintage figures. . .)   :o

An Imperial officers battlepack? Now THAT would earn my cash!! What a sweet idea that would be.

Does anyone know when the black clothes will be lifted?  Maybe then we can see some NEW product...

I believe the following items are under wraps:

Concept Figs
Sith Infiltrator
Yellow Starfighter
Cantina 5-pack
Final 17 SAGA figs

Also rumoured is the Yavin wave:

Rebel Sentry
Rebel Pilot
Death Star Trooper
Luke Skywalker Ceremony
Han Solo Ceremony

Tomorrow afternoon, I believe? Don't get your hopes up for much new material...

I'm pretty much only excited to see the Imperial Offices pack, the unvieling of the Figrin D'an and his Modal Nodes, and of course a look at five or six more Jedi Starfighter repaints.

Another shot of the Imperials, with what looks to be Colonel Henrik Wulff Yularen:

Hmmm....thanks for the pics Matthew.  This is really interesting now, it definitely appears to be some sort of Imperials pack - but who does it include and where will it be released?  I have a feeling much of what is "under the cloth" will be the repaints/repacks we've heard about, maybe with a few surprises.  I think the biggest news we might see this weekend will be at Hasbro's panel with a "look at 2007".  I know they often have some slideshow showing a few examples of what's on the way.  We'll see, but I'm hoping for some more new stuff.  Nothing really earth-shattering so far.

The Tarkin looks like the ROTS version with a new head.

The Tarkin also looks repainted to match the OT era officer suits. The ROTS Tarkin was darker than what we can see in that picture.

All these new figures/vehicles/etc. are absolutely amazing, but where am I gonna get the money?? I mean, I can hardly afford to buy more than 1 or 2 figures per wave right now. But there are so many things I want from next year's line!

Better pick of the Imp. Officer BP:



Also, I see Scorch! Look's like Delta Squad is coming. Hopefully it will either be a mass retail BP or a Target Exclusive BP.

Every TSC figure is on display, including Scorch, so I wouldn't get my hopes up about getting Delta Squad. :(
