I'm pretty sure this means we're looking at a 5POA main lineup. 

Hopefully what Hasbro hinted a while back about 3.75" black series continuing holds true; I'm not feeling too good about all of that though right now.

Thanks for sharing this list, Nicklab.

Interesting list...  I wouldn't panic on TBS 4" just yet.  I have a feeling there is more news to come on that front.

The vehicles were intriguing.  3 price points seems ambitious.  Assuming $30 is just the old $19.99 decent ships we used to receive.  I was hoping 5 POA would see a price drop too but that appears to not be happening.

Thanks for posting Nick.  Great reminder just how much stuff will be heading our way this Fall for a new movie. :P

I'll agree with the folks who are thinking that this list may not be complete and there is hope for the Mission Series (Ahsoka/Vader, etc) and the "collector" 3.75" line still.

Thanks Nicklab!

I agree, as Nicklab himself said, this is unlikely to be comprehensive and we sort of already know Mission Series is continuing. I was worried we'd see a price hike on the 5 POA stuff and this seems to indicate we'll see it. Unless we're seeing a bump in articulation in this line - which maybe - I'd think it's really in Hasbro's best interest to keep the line as affordable as possible. It's working for them, after all. Anyways, all speculation for now. Everything seems very big and movie launch-ish. It will be a great fall and winter I'm sure.

Darth Vader EpVII Lightsaber. Interesting.

There's also a listing for a Yoda lightsaber. All things considered, I'm not reading too much into these relatively vague product listings.

Yeah, probably just packaging things, but hey you never know.

There are certain iconic things they're going to definitely want to carry around, film to film, and cash in on.

I'm hoping the $8 figures are middle-of-the-road on articulation, in that they offer figures with waists and elbows again.

I'm not overly hopeful for them going to 2007-levels for the line overall...  Hitting SA sometimes, not always, and sometimes not at all.

Intriguing list. At $8 a pop, I can't see us getting purely 5POA figures in the basic line. There should at least be something extra, elbows, knees, etc. Especially if the $30 vehicle line is what we used to get for $20. If the "Deluxe Vehicle" line is anything like that line from a few years ago where we got that Republic Drop Pod, those were awesome, and I'm pumped, especially since that would be great for Kira's ice cream bar speeder we see in the teaser.

The most exciting thing to me, though, is the return of Micro Machines! I hope they make some from all of the movies because I'd go all in.
