Thanks for the info Jayson.

Say anyone going if you could swing by the MegaBloks booth for me. It's booth #2563. I am interested in seeing the new Halo sets. Any pics would of course be very welcomed and grateful. You can PM them to me or e-mail them if you don't post them in the main forum. Again, thanks to anyone who can help with this specific request.

Is anyone going to cover the LEGO area as well? There are new SW sets planned.

Well of SW stuff yes, but not the Halo stuff... Besides the Megabloks stuff, I'm hoping to see pics of the McFarlane booth too. They have 5" Halo figures and vehicles.

For non-SW lines, I'd check out Figures.com or CTR, but since I don't collect anything but SW I'm not sure who else would have the coverage you're looking for.  :-\

I"m just wondering who all is going to cover this. Apparently JD isn't going to be there, and now GH isn't either. I don't really want my news from RS and I self exiled myself from SSG, so I won't be looking there either.

Wait, so we aren't going?  Well then I need to see if somebody wants my broadway tickets and to stay in the hotel I prepaid for....  crap.  My wife is gonna be PISSED.
When Jesse's computer gets fixed we need to tell him too.

I will cancel my appointments with Lego, Schleicht and Mcfarlane then too.

Heh heh, alright, alright....I've been corrected, lol. Sereiously though, I thought I read somewhere on here that JD wasn't going, so that's where the thought came from. Good to know you guys will be there. By your response does that mean you'll cover LEGO and McFarlane (Halo figures)? Any possibility I can talk you into swinging by Megablocks booth? They are just a little bit away from the LEGO booth.

The whole game thing really bothers me.  It just reinforces my theories that children lo longer know how to "play."  Children are starting organized sports, and video games, at such an early age these days, that they no longer know how to play in an unstrcutured, open-ended scenario.  With sports, and video games, the goal is clear and simple; win.  But when they pick up toys, they don't know what the goal is. . It's really sad, and I've made sure that my boys (3 1/2 and 5) get plenty of unstructured play time. 

I haer you on that.   My four year old loves video games, but we also find time to play with his Imaginenext Batman stuff and some of my old school Star Wars stuff.  My 18 month old also joins in. 
For those looking for coverage of other lines, toynewsi usually has pretty good photos.

Ha.  We love Imaginext too.  But what my boys really love are the playsets!  I'm sure if Hasbro made some Galactic Hero playsets with the creativity and fun that Fisher Price puts into the Imaginext playsets, that line would really go through the roof.  That Batcave is one f the most played with toys we've ever owned.

We've got our Hasbro Star Wars gallery live now. 

We've decided not to watermark things this year (not worth the effort since folks still steal photos anyway).  If you re-use them or repost them, please post a link/credit - thanks!

Hey Jeff - did you guys get the link to the FTP server to download the slides? I'm interested to see a hi-res shot of those exclusives slides - especially the Zuckass/4-LOM one.

Is that wave with the Cold Weather Obi-Wan and Rex going to be the last wave CW in the current packaging?

Yes, that is the plan.  There will be a few "remix" cases over the summer if needed, but the Cold ObiWan, Cold Clone, MAgna Droid, etc should be the last on the 2009 style cardback.
