Did his uni really have that skirt like look?  Seems like a mis-use of soft goods.

I had a bit of problems with my camera (it's old) and it's evident in the quality (blurry) in the photos.  :( I'm a bit frustrated.

I'll be doing some serious cherry-picking this year. It's great to see that Hasbro will be shipping more sandtroopers...

Yeah, but it comes with the sentry droid.

Younger Ahsoka would've made more sense, what with early CW Anakin and Obi-Wan. Though, I think Obi-Wan is a wasted slot. Mainly there's no "wow, that's what he'd look like if he were in a movie!"...just "meh".  I can think of 20 figures I'd make before that...and that's just from CW.

ANH Vader...no chest soft goods.  But ball hips at last.

The clones and sandtroopers bore me at this point. Clone Pilot is especially boring...evolutions pack redeco....except he's not...has at least new lower legs/feet. More tooling on something that could've waited until 2014.

Nien Nunb kinda squatty...can't remember if he is supposed to be.

Lumat wrong color...this pains me because I really want a character I've never been able to spot onscreen to be 100% accurate.  :P

For TPM rerelease year, there's no Tarpals, no Panaka, no Naboo Security, no Nute, no Security Droid.

Super excited for the ROTJ figures (I believe that Royal Guard is all new). TCW figures look good. 

I liked the Sandtrooper even though we didn't need one

For Ewoks - just At-St Hijackers left, maybe Teebo.

Sick of Clones - should have waited for there films in '13-'14

I seriously had dreams of the Ewok exclusive sets being shown at TF....  Must have been the vicodin.

You know, I'm actually pretty happy with what they showed...more than I thought.  My own personal wishlist of must have stuff before 12/21/12 comes is really small.  Sim Aloo and a Lars Power Droid, Resculpts of a few POTF2 figs (Owen and Beru, Leia, Lando, Yak and Ree Yees)

It looks like Tarkin is wearing a kilt.

I'm a little disappointed in how Tarkin and Luke both look...  Otherwise I was happy.  I'm very into the TOR figures, and realistic Clone Wars is very welcome to me.  I liked most of it, I just know the two I was looking forward to the most in Tarkin and Hoth Luke looked like **** at the show.   :-\

And no N1 Fighter?  Wow.

Part of me thinks that this was supposed to be a pack-in with Luke's Taun-Taun and that just didn't work out so here he is on a card.  Sort of the same as "hood up" Hoth Han.  Sure seems like we'll see him again with a different headsculpt - I mean, they've reused that VTSC Hoth Han dozens of times, maybe they'll do the same with this Hoth Luke buck...  Wampa-scratched face head, removable hat head, etc.

-SDCC Jar Jar in Carbonite Block...  Seriously?  Easy pass.

-SDCC Carbonite Chamber Packaging, 6 figures, 1 from each film, Jar Jar, Clone Lt., Shocktrooper, Sandtrooper, Bespin Leia, Vader.  Jar Jar in Carbonite is EXCLUSIVE TO THIS SET.  Again, still an easy pass.  Regular Jar Jar fits into block.


Um, this is like the photo of charred Beru and Owen, right?  It's just a joke?

I like a lot of what was shown today.  Much more than I thought I would.  My son is absolutely drooling over the MTT.  He's 7.  I like it to but not the $140 price tag.  That will have to be for Christmas.  Once again I like most of the OT offerings in regard to action figures.  I like how a majority of them turned out.  Some of the PT stuff is nice to of course.  I am not into the AMP'd stuff of course.  OR those little game piece things.  I just hope I will be able to find this stuff and hopefully the prices either get knocked down a buck or two or TRU has a lot of buy 2 get one free sales.

Some good stuff, but still some letdowns... Soft goods on Tarkin look awful, phase 2 removable helmets still suck, and the crossover Ahsoka and Anakin couldn't look much worse.
