Well with those shots and The GI Joe 7 packs, my trip to New York just got superfluous.  Canceling the flight to save for Death Star Troopers.   I may take my 30th AC version for size comparison. 

And those little things are "squenkies" if I had to guess.

Maybe the little figures tie into that Superhero Squad type cartoon they are making.

Wow! I actually like the current DST, but I plan on getting a bunch of the new ones!

The light up saber figures suck. But whatever, I'm not the target demographic for those.

Sitting on the runway. I guess there are issues about landing up I the NYC area, something about traffic. 

Assuming my socks stay dry when I get there, should have some day 1 photos tonight.

Hey Paul, Could you please do what you can to find out what is underneath the Hoth Luke's scarfs. Thanks and love your board.

I bet those little guys are made to cash in on the cute collectable stuff like Trashies, or even Mighty Beans.

See you guys friday.---Mike

That DST is cool and all but I really wish they would have went with a Death Squad Commander instead :'(

Like the Battlemat game and how jazzed they were for that? :)

Wasn't there some Hasbro thing planned for 5-6pm today? Or is that tomorrow? Seems like some new stuff is starting to leak out already, Adam P had some good scoop on the new Naboo fighter.

Hasbro had a get-together if you were in town last night.

A few more Hasbro pics are floating around out there...

- looks like both Ani's and Sebulba's Pod Racers are making a comeback
- was anyone out there asking for a Vintage packages AT-AP from RotS?  ???
- looks like we'll see Maul/Speeder and Droid/STAP in a TPM packaged DLX sets
- Some new 2-packs are being shown...  I wonder if these is what were meant by those "sith 2-packs" that were rumored a while back?

And from Adam Pawlus Twitter:
- the new 2012 Naboo Fighter has an Astromech socket
- there will be a TPM Astromech Battle Pack
- and there will be a Dewback in a TPM box

Those 2-packs look like easy passes...  Same with a couple other things.  Could be a relatively inexpensive spring for me.  I can't see buying more STAPS when the original is so cheap ya know?

I'm more intrigued by the TPM packaging.  I won't buy the repack QGJ and Obi unless there's some kind of sale (or unannounced price drop), but it'd be swell having their cards handy if for nothing more than a nice "complete" look of cardbacks ya know?

Looks like a lot of money to be saved with those E1 vehicle reissues, movie heroes (repacks) and 3 figure battle packs.

I already don't like the CW figures on the Maul card. What a blended mess those pegs will be.

Yeah, I was having a little trouble figuring out what the deal was with those cards/CW.  Odd looking.  I think CW will be taking such a backseat for a while though it almost makes a little sense, but yeah...  should be messy pegs.  They're a mess now though anyway so what's the difference I guess.

Oddly, I talked to a TRU guy last month and damned if he didn't know the different card colors and what they meant.  Go figure.
