I see Rebelscum has more on the TRU exclusives for Fall.

I really, really, really want a new ESB Slave 1 with brand new Han Carbonite.  But I'm really, really worried it's going to cost like $100+ in this new overpriced era. :(

If it's paint really nice I would happily pay $80-$100 for the Slave 1. I am stoked of the OT attention and will support these like no tomorrow. I want to help send a message, keep the focus on OT an you will get a positve response.

I want a Sailbarge one day along with a retooled Skiff.

Lots of new rumors this week, hopefully SDCC will be a good showing this year (or the combination of SDCC and C6).  Although I'm a little nervous about the price as well, I'm pretty psyched for the possibility of that ESB Slave 1 with the new Carbonite block.  Also, the speeder bike.  I've been waiting for one of those for awhile as well.  Hopefully both do end up being true, and we'll get some nice pics soon.  I'm almost a little surprised they didn't save the Slave 1 for the Empire 3D release year, but I guess that is a ways off yet (and we still haven't gotten confirmation on AOTC at this point).

The battle packs (Ewoks and Pilots) are both great too, and I can't wait for those.  So far, it looks like TRU is cleaning up on exclusives this Fall, it will be interesting to see what the other stores get.  I really like Scott's idea for the Cantina aliens 3 Pack, and I'm sort of glad to see those returning to Target.  I know the previous rounds have basically been repacks (and clearanced), but I guess the nostalgia of it is kind of nice.  And, for the most part, they have used pretty nice versions of the figures to fill out the packs.

So we've seen what appears to be a variant AT-ST Pilot utilizing the Assault On Hoth BP's AT-ST Pilot sculpt, but there seem to be some deco differences and a totally new head that I can't place with any other figure.

It's unclear if it's a prototype, production figure (I lean this way), and it's unknown if it's a pack-in or basic figure as well.

Either way, seems like we're getting a quasi-new one by what was seen! :D

Chalk it up to rumor right now though.  :-X

I'm hoping for not a rumor. And that it's not so tall.

awesome! I have 8 of the original ones from that hoth pack but I replaced all of their helmets with the previous ones to make them look better as the googles are attached to the helmet. The helmet he originally came with and the seperate goggles did not work well or look good at all. I hope that got corrected.
It's been a long time coming for this guys and about time.

JJ did they fix the helmet or is it a different head? the head he came with was great, I would love more to swap with rebels.

This is great news, I'm really hoping he's not too hard of a figure to get a handful of for most people.

Yeah!!! I only have two of this figure from the Hoth Target Sets - so I will happily get a bunch more for my old/new AT-STs...

Not surprising that he's in the pipeline with the AT-ST coming to K-Mart, it makes sense from a product coordination standpoint.

Hopefully he'll be easier to get than the Imperial Navy Commander figure...  :-X

Maybe he is the pack in with the new Endor AT AT. I mean it is a warmer climate, and we didn't see exactly what uniform was worn in the Hoth AS AT or even the Endor AT AT. Just a thought.

He cud b a packin or basic.  We DO NOT know many details but for one so-so picture that seemed to only indicate a new head n some slight deco differences.

I'm hoping for basic figure.  Looks to reuse body exactly with no changes.

The Q&A at Yodasnews seems to hint that Hasbro really wants to get a female droid out there in the droid factory line.

So that sort of means Guri, EV-9D9 or BD3000...no?

I don't think it'll be EV cause they said they'd be droids never offered before. (Unless they meant never offered as just a B.A.D.)

BD3000 is my pick.
