I'm sure he'll (Corpsey) will get a legitimate name before release.  ;)

The inclusion of Corpsey makes this smell a bit.

Hmm...maybe the figure will have "real charred fur smell" scent, like Stinkor from 1980's Masters of the Universe.  :D

Two very easy purchases...  actually, 4 since I'll probably nab at least two of each.

The Rebel set is definitely very similar in theme to 2011's BATTLE OF ENDOR multi-packs.    And I'm glad to see some of the Battle of Yavin pilots who actually have dialogue getting figures.  I really hope they're legit!

As for the Ewoks?  We've known that Kneesa was in the works for at least a year, but got split off from a possible 2-pack with Wicket.  And updated Teebo would be awesome, too.  And more new Ewoks are certainly welcome in my book since Hasbro has finally gotten around to finishing the Kenner Ewoks.

Based on what we've seen in recent history?  I'm thinking that these are probably TRU exclusives.  I guess we're going to have to wait and see what develops with these.

There weren't any exclusives announced outside of the SDCC set were there?

Not that I've seen.  And nobody has posted the slideshow.  I would think that at least from the various Twitter feeds out of the hall we might have heard about some exclusives.

Nah, I think exclusives are reserved for SDCC or another show generally...  Since they're not really important things at the Toy Fair public event and all.

No, they usually do at least announce them, at least in the slideshow

This is what I geek out about. Both of these sets will be very welcome.

One of the ewoks is the one with the imperial blaster, I believe the other ewoks are the AT-ST Hijackers  ;D

Really hope these sets see the light of day, they look great.  Nice to have an ewok set like that, and the pilots isn't bad either.  Definitely hope we get more info on these, and that they are headed our way later this year.  Does seem like a TRU-type exclusive, probably later in the year.

A nice advance on ewok depiction, althought seems they alterante Chirpa and Wicket torsos, hope to see the final paintjob which improves characterization.

The pilots heads seems accurate, but Porkins body is not fat enough (remember the rumor to use Willrow body for a new porkins, only fat belly)
