So...who's live streaming the Hasbro presentation this morning/afternoon?

And is it 11am EST or PST?

It should be 11am Pacific.

As for streaming, I think SWAN usually streams those, but there may be others out there as well.

What do they mean the TPM stuff did well? What are they smoking?

So, I was following GH's live tweeting of the Hasbro presentation/Q&A and, from the way it sounded, this year's dismal distribution issues weren't addressed at all.  Seriously?  People ask about the possibility of vintage-style prequel figures for the millionth time, but NOBODY addresses the elephant bantha in the room?

Distribution was never brought up in the Q&A, at all.  Whoever was there didn't ask I guess.  It was short but some info was out.  They do wanna get the Mando shuttle out.  Our revised list is posted on the front page though till more info possibly trickles in.

wow that sucked.  All the figures look "new enough to make you mad" and their droids that accompany them look cool.  Oh well, only 30 figures for the year, shouldn't hurt the wallet too much.

I wonder how much Jocasta will cost?  Never ordered from Brian's cuz I know their prices are high.

Why didn't anyone ask about distribution? Was that a room full of people who are always able to find what they need or something?

Some other interesting notes/thoughts from the presentation -

- Were there no Walmart exclusives shown for the Fall?  I guess having to clearance out all that "great selling" TPM Discover the Force stuff maybe soured them on excluisves for a while? :P

- No Celebration 6 exclusive?  Wow.  Sort of makes me wonder if there were plans for maybe Jocasta to be the C6 exclusive that crumbled and caused her to get dumped at Brian's Toys instead maybe?  Or maybe they just didn't want the hassle of selling something at that show?  Strange to have nothing from Hasbro, but my wallet is happy about it I guess.

- Where are Yakface/ReeYees?  Didn't the Q&A confirm one or both of them for 2012?  Did they maybe hold them back for some sort of 2013 ROTJ 30th anniversary thing or something? :(

Maybe Wal-Mart will have an AOTC 3D B.A.D. wave as an exclusive, and they just didn't reveal it yet.
