Crap. I completely forgot about Stan's "rumors." I was excited for a moment.

Looks like everyone's forgotten about them again, and with good reason.  How many of these ACTUALLY panned out at SDCC? 

Quote
Han Solo (Hoth Outfit)
Tzizvvit
Shasa Tiel (Ishi Tib Jabba's Palace)
Barada
Vedain (Nikto Skiff Guard Driver)
Han Solo (In Carbonite)
Lobot
Lando Calrissian
Bespin Security Guard
Power Droid
Hammerhead
Imperial Gunner (JUST ADDED!)
Yak Face (JUST ADDED!)

Let's see..... that would be NONE!  Well, the only one that might be considered halfway confirmed was the Han Solo in Hoth gear, which likely refers to the 6" Deluxe figure.  But I just have to shake my head at sites that should know better running rumors like this as news without any sort of independent verification

Yeah I just shrugged at this. No doubt some of these guys are in development, because you know, what else, but I think it's clear from what we've seen recently that the 'collector line' is not going to generate a ton of excitement and certainly not 18 figures at a crack. Maybe for the movie next year (probably) but I'd like to see some follow up from some of the places that leaned on this. A lot of the comments I see out and about regarding 'other sites' and their reporting makes me think what's good for the goose is good for the gander.

Agreed. With Hasbro producing large numbers of figures in years past, I have always wondered if Stan was doing nothing more than just guessing at where Hasbro would go next with figures and just throwing it out there and seeing what sticks.

But now with the breadth and depth of the line being almost non-existent, he's going to be getting less and less accurate with his guesses.

His odds start to go the longer the list is out there...still not good odds though

Another way to look at it is look at our wishlist from 2009 and see how many of those have been made (almost all!)

Hasbro just knows good taste when they read it I guess. :)
