Wait, so Hasbro made a sculpt for that Nightsister - Mighella? That's shocking. She's an EU character, and from a comic, too, and Hasbro actually chose her over, say, Mother Talzin? I'm shocked.
It just means that she was slated for a comic pack before the line was cancelled. And since they already had the sculpt they are putting her out. Just like Nom Anor.

People are thinking that we are going to see Darth Malgus based on a glimpse of a lightsaber in some pics.

ah yes, I see it now that you pointed it out - before all I really saw when I looked at that pic was the lightsaber.

And they were right. I wonder how much EU stuff will be TOR now.

Is the Jar Jar rumor implying Vinty or what?  He's coming in the Movie Heroes line, which that figure jived pretty well (from what I saw) with our rumor report prior to NYCC.  Jar Jar is already coming out in 2012 though, as we saw at NYCC, so that's confusing.

It's funny how much creedence whatever Stan says is given at otheR places.  Sometimes it does seem like he throws a bunch of s**t at a wall, and hopefully some of it will stick.  And there's always this caveat he offers up that "things are always changing from Hasbro" which is used to seperate himself from his prognostications.

Personally, I think that his account may very well be used by someone within Hasbro in order to send up trial balloons in a forum setting so that the Star Wars team can conduct some market research.  But it also seems like something that can be used to stir the proverbial pot, too.

New Boba Fett

Maybe Boba is the Mail-Away? Unless he means Lil' Boba.

I'd love a Hammerhead on a Vintage card. I think all Star Wars figures need the vintage treatment.

I've been expecting there to be a vintage Jar Jar since I saw the MH one. We knew back in 2010 that there was Jar Jar planned for early 2011 but got pushed back because of the 3D release. I had assumed at SDCC when it wasn't shown to be in the 2012 TPM wave that it had been moved into MH but that one is obviously not it.

Read this hooplah at the otheR Site, and kee-rist...  ::)

"tarkin's been rumored a while, but this pretty much seals it!"

Seriously?  This is what you needed for confirmation?

I see why there's such excitement over there.  Half the people seem a bit late to the party.

And will anyone honestly be shocked at a repaint of Slave-I or the Snowspeeder happening?  Isn't that easy to assume?  I didn't buy Slave-I, but wasn't it designed with a hold for a Carbonite block?  And the Snowspeeder's designed to have the removable armor panel and stuff.  :-\  Eh, whatever.
