Yes, the Hasbro collector event is tomorrow afternoon.  With today's digital age, I'm sure you'll see some sites facebooking and tweeting things first, followed by all the sites getting pictures up late Saturday afternoon/night.  I don't have one of those newfangled smartphones for instant posting of pics/tweets, but we'll do our best to get info out as soon as we can. ;)

As long as you have dry socks we will manage.

I'm worried Jesse might snag the RFT proto and run out of the Hasbro show though... make sure he wears a T-Shirt from one of the otheR sites.

I'm wondering if the paint they use on their display examples is atleast drool resistant?


Run Jesse Run!

Resizing, thumb-nailing, and uploading scads and scad of Hasbro pics most likely. :P

I hope we see a lot of new stuff and not just the stuff leaked recently.  It would be nice to finally the delayed TPM wave, even if it is coming later in the year.

The Echo Base Trooper's huge news to me.  Very cool.

Also add in a Revenge of the Jedi carded set of I guess repacks, in a Death Star Box, at San Diego Comic-Con...  Slave Leia, B-Wing Pilot...  I didn't catch everything.  Also Salacious and the Mousedroid are on small cards.  Weird.

I darn near choked on my drink when I read the IJ wave 5 news!  It will be expensive I'm sure but much better than trying to hunt them down on the secondary market for a small fortune. 

I'm actually kind of happy about the Revenge of the Jedi carded figures.  I"m not sure how the Death Star thing will look?  At least it sounds like you can buy the regular figures at retail.  I'm happy that they are making a carded Slave Leia. 

I did see the Echo Base Trooper picture somewhere.  I thought it looked pretty good.  I'm happy with most of the pictures I saw.  Although they are kind of faded from the slides. 

All in all some good stuff.  Oh and the DVD packs actually looked great IMO.
