  - The 6 Droid Factory 2-packs (7/1)-2packs? I thought these would be single carded figs with droid parts in them. So are they $10 sets now??

There are both a basic figure "Droid Factory" line and these WM exclusive 2-packs... more info here.  The 2-packs were requested by WM to have something to compete with Target's O66 sets.

A CLEAR difference between lines! Hopefully stockpeople will stock pegs accordingly now! (Though I won't hold my breath)

I wasn't too crazy about the stormtrooper head cards, aesthetically not too great. But I didn't think of that. Definitely a good thing.

That the best Harrison Ford likeness in a long while. It's a shame the hair is blowing but I really dig this wave of figures.   now we need the new slave Leia to go with this set of desert storm figures.

Where's the Leia?????

I'm kind of underwhelmed by this wave, Bane, Ewok and Yarna, excellent. Although the other figures look good... really good, I'm more excited over Yarna than I am these, and that says allot. In such a diverse year of product, I question filling precious OT slots with cut scene and controversial added scene characters.

This will be awesome to have both Stormtrooper and Clone trooper cards on the pegs. A CLEAR difference between lines! Hopefully stockpeople will stock pegs accordingly now! (Though I won't hold my breath)

I can already see it now...

I don't think the stockpeople are going to look too closely, and neither are the general customer. SW figures will get tossed on any peg that has figs on it.

I would like to see Vader's removeable helmet in it's two pieces. So far Hasbro seems to have it shown as a one-piece. Anyone see it separate? How does it look?

I'm pretty impressed with the detail in this wave, but yeah - would have liked to see a better Leia than some of the others.  I wonder if there will be an Evo Leia set down the road?

I dont' think the one that Hasbro has on display is the right one? It's different from the one during the presentation slideshow as the display version doesn't have the full cloth tabard soft goods.

I'm glad we're getting Yarna, but I agree - I'd rather have a new sexy Leia.

I meant to post this in this general toy fair thread, but posted it in the legacy section by mistake.  ::)

Well I just got back from Toy fair and the Hasbro show rooms and I have to say it was awesome. First i have to say my girlfriend is awesome  ;D. We totally got in with no trouble with her press pass. We saw all of the Hasbro products and for the most all were really good. (FFF makes awesome BAF) The Indy / Star Wars room was def. the highlight. I was surrounded by greatness and couldnt stop smiling while trying to act professional. The figures look great in person, even the animated ones and Yarna is awesome. The battlepacks and evolution sets looked great and the comic packs were really good too. Overall it was just really cool and did i mention my girlfriend is the best.  ;D I was really hoping for a Star Wars or Indy exclusive, but the press kit was a my little pny set  :-[
