Unfortunately, you'll be waiting a bit.

The rancor and the dewback sets were shown during the presentation and were not in the showroom to be photographed.  :(

Hasbro is sending out images, when we get them, we'll post them.  In the meantime, check out Vader's TIE and the Ep2 Starfighter sets:

Lots of things to be excited about.  Even more than I was hoping for.

I gotta say though, Jar Jar/ Destroyer Droid may cross a new line for Galactic Heroes.  I'm happy all those Cinema Scene exclusives are trickling out in the two-packs.  I also had no doubt Hasbro was openly lying about the prospects for Jar Jar coming out in a two pack any time soon, and made my peace with it (for some reason) long before I dropped $25 on him at TRU.  But announcing three months later that he's about to be handcuffed to a NEW figure?  Come on, Hasbro, years of following the plight of 3.75 collectors taught me not to expect much, but I know you're bigger than THAT.  Seriously, how late do I have to stay up tonight before seeing pictures of Qui Gon/ Watto ::)?

ETA:
Per Jeff's post below...  REDACTED!!!!

Just to clarify, the JarJar in the upcoming 2-pack is not the same as the Cinema Scene version.

This new one has a "boomer" thingy weapon and a new head sculpt...

If the dewback and rancor go as well with kubricks as the jabba, I am beyond stoked!

We don't have the slides yet, but 'scum was able to get a copy early.  Here are the Dewback and Rancor sets....  dewback should be a wide release, the rancor is TRU exclusive.

The new figures look nice as usual especially the vehicles.  These are so fun and cool to collect, and I gotta admit at least for me, Hasbro is making it hard to stop collecting this line.

The new stuff looks pretty cool.  I'm really stoked about a Rancor in the GH line, and hope it won't be too tough to get a hold of (being exclusive).  Overall, it looks like a pretty prequel-heavy year for the GH in general (which is expected I guess), but there's still some nice stuff on the way.  I guess Hasbro is seeing that its not just a "kid's line" with figures like Slave Leia making an appearance now :).  Nice to see some new ships as well, I hope they do well and they'll continue.

I knew I missed something in all of those Toy Fair photos.

Lovin the Rancor and the Jedi Starfighter.  Nothing wrong with Slave Leia & Bar2 either.  :)

Agreed, but there IS something wrong with those cinema sets.  I don't like to complain (and most don't want to hear it) but Hasbro could stand to put a little more effort in regards to repaints. 

I don't mind 'new' sandtroopers if they have different pauldrons that we don't already have - Blue Snags was cool as were the Cantina Band guys with new instruments.  But these new sets leave a lot to be desired.

*Endor Set - two new Ewoks

*Mustafar Set - new Padme and Commander Thire

*Dewback Set - new Dewback and Luke (what is that, three Tatooine Lukes?)

*Geonosis Set - worst set yet - only new character is the Nexu. 

*Falcon - absolutely nothing new here outside of the Falcon (assuming you missed it the first time).

The vehicles sets are a little easier to swallow (we know the TRU sets will be $25+) because they are newly tooled vehicles and they make up 80% of the set.
