I put no stock in the rumors (remember the non-Stan rumor list with Clone Wars stuff like Captain Tarkin?), and not even that much  in Hasbro's Q&A responses...because plans change. Look at how much got 2011 stuff shoved into 2012.

1 + 2 = Sail Barge?

This probably just wishful thinking of me, but when I see 2 Jabba themed (Palace/Sarlacc) Lego playsets being debuted it gets my wishful thinking going...  Could we be getting a Sail Barge this year?

I realize this is the year of TPM, but maybe...  just maybe...

I doubt it, but Hasbro has been taking note of LEGO vehicle releases as of late which is odd so who knows.  I'd still bank on 2018 or whenever that darned Jedi movie is supposed to hit theaters again.

I also see some Old Republic LEGO stuff coming out so hopefully Hasbro will bite on at least one or two of those.

I can't see any video game vehicles being made.

We all know the big vehicle next year is the Gungan Bongo Sub.  :P

Sounds like Hasbro is going to unveil three new Vintage Collection figures at UK Toy Fair today...   anyone want to play "guess the figures?"

I'll go with Tarkin, Luke and a new Wookiee.

Sounds kind of cool.  I was sort of hoping they'd do a new Ree Yees (especially after seeing the detail they put into the Senator from ROTS), and a realistic Ahsoka should be a popular figure.  Not sure if I care much about Darth Plagueius, although I understand why they would make one.

this sounds like a hint of the new figures from user Guardian over at RS:

Quote
I have not seen a reeyess or yaface, but they are putting out a new weequay, lumat, and 2 more rotj rebels. Both have been made before in POTF time. One has had his brother made in the BAF line. He had 2 eyes though.

Id say the EU figure they will show today is the Female bounty hunter from the new game as she was coming this year.

so one is pruneface if this is accurate

Dressel Rebel just pooped his pants.  I'm down for a new Orrimarko for sure.  Be extra cool if the patch were removable and he had some funky scarring, but I can live without that too.  :)  It'll just be cool getting the other color cloak IMO.  Loved that last Dressellian Commando and army built the shizzle out of him.

Could the other Rebel be a human in the vest ala the Saga figure, but using Col. McCracken's upper body or something?

Why all the UK eyewitness accounts but no pictures?

I know they try to be super militant about that stuff, but I seem to recall we got a lot of good shots of the AT-AT when they premiered that over there...

It's possible that these things are being said but not pictured.  UK Toy Fair generally doesn't have the same ammount of stuff to show, as US Toy Fair does anyway, so it's possible the reps there are just saying this figure or that figure are coming out.

If we get a Prunce Face, Hasbro needs to do a whole new sculpt on the head.  That Legacy one was really bad compared to most other alien sculpts.

Really?  I rather liked it a lot...  Compare it to the mask stills and I think you'll be shocked.  I think it's more that the mask is ****, and the paintjob on the eyes was almost always off on that too.

And I have been eating a crazy amount of fiber lately, it's really a hair trigger in the first place.  A new dresselian figure is overkill.
