Rob is working on pics... I'll post some comments in here as I can.  I can also answer questions...

My TF'11 highlights were Bespin Han and the news that the "lost" RotLA wave would be a box set at SDCC. :)

Any other word on the rest of the Ponda Baba wave (besides what was shown)?

Jeff - did they show a pic of the RotLA box set?

My Questions:

How's the weather? 

Were you able to get pics without threat of a "rumble"?

Jeff - did they show a pic of the RotLA box set?

No, the packaging wasn't ready.  The pic they showed just had the 6 figures and the details (SDCC exclusive, celebrating Indy's 30th, etc).

Any other word on the rest of the Ponda Baba wave (besides what was shown)?

Just Bastila, Echo Base Dude, and Ponda were shown - the rest will be shown at SDCC since they weren't quite ready yet.

How's the weather? 

Were you able to get pics without threat of a "rumble"?

The weather is nice, 30something and not too windy.  The picture taking process was rowdy as usual, but we managed to take over 700 pics between the two of us I think.

I saw in the reports that TVC is supposed to consist of 35 figures for 2011 - I wonder if that is counting the "mixed" wave with Luke/Han/R5/Gree/etc..  If so, we probably know about quite a bit of the lineup for the year, don't we?  Lots of good stuff to look forward to the way it sounds, and with prices what they are, I'm sort of glad we're not getting 50+ figures - it is just too hard to keep up.

I agree, there doesn't seem to be an unreasonable amount of product...

Highlights...

Dr. Ezavan looks awesome, and is as good as I hoped.
Rebel Fleet Trooper comes with a cap, a leg belt that the pilots wear, a pole, and the scanner device used by the guy in the Yavin temple.  Beyond cool.
Each new figure looks fantastic...Kithaba, Bom, Logray
No new small sized ships?
No Savage Oppress and CW beyond what we have seen?
Han Bespin's jacket is very blue

More Indy!!

While we're all waiting for Jeff and Rob's socks to dry, there are some pretty good pictures in the official site slideshow page.

Yeah - speedermike asks a great question - where was the Savage Opress figure?

I would have expected to see him at Toy Fair. Maybe they're holding him back for SDCC?

We have the slides up now...
http://www.jedidefender.com/gallery/imageFolio.cgi?direct=Conventions/Toy_Fair_2011/Hasbro_Star_Wars/Collector_Presentation

Rob/Jesse are still working on the other pics.

Just curious....the "35" vinatge figures in 2011 starts where?

With 2011 Wave 1 (Han/Luke/R5/etc)

So, that's
6 for Wave 5
6 for Wave 6
6 for Wave 7
5 for Wave 8
3 (that we know of) for Wave 9

26, which basically leaves 1.5 waves (rest of Wave 9, Wave 10) for SDCC.  Then it gets a little foggy on if the Revenge Carded figures are being counted in that 35...

where was the Savage Opress figure?

I would have expected to see him at Toy Fair. Maybe they're holding him back for SDCC?

Savage Opress if they make one (;)) would be shown at SDCC. 

They only had 2x waves of CW ready for TF (Wave 2, Wave 3) and they weren't a surprise thanks to being leaked a few weeks ago.  Sounded like they were close on Wave 4, but decided to hold it.  There is a chance that Wave 4 could get out before July though...

Did they show or make reference to any mid-size vehicles for the coming year, in either line?

Our galleries are filling up so check them out.  I'll be working on images all night it seems.  Rob and Jeff took some really good photos.  Check out our Toy Fair 2011 Hasbro Galleries as we get them filled up here.
