Any thoughts on what we could get? Part of me almost thinks it'll be something Vintage-related like the Fett. Like we'd wind up with a Blue Snaggletooth re-release or something (just throwing it out there, not necessarilly what I believe we'd get).
I could almost see them delivering a Death Squad/Star Commander this way. After our discussion though, I really am not into the thought of a repaint there. That character clearly has a very unique uniform compared to other officers, and very clearly compared to the traditional "Death Star Trooper" in the black we're used to.
At the same time, I could see Hasbro say, "Screw it... It's not really worth the hastle". I reflect back on Rocket Firing Fett in particular there. They were pretty geeked about him at Toy Fair because he was 100% aimed squarely at the collector, and I don't know if they were really intending him to even drive sales much, but rather to just give collectors something cool.
However, due to the shipping issues, they sort of faced a lot of criticism that I don't know was really honestly deserved... at least not in Hasbro's direction specifically, but they took it. I could just see them backing off a mail-in this year. Maybe just Clone Wars, or maybe even nothing at all. These toolings they're putting into them aren't cheap I'm sure.
Anyway, I'm really curious about what we could see in 2011 now. There's been no real hint so far.
