Something about this seems fishy.  Notably, the dates.  Specific release dates for individual figures are something that we've only seen for Disney's Elite Series die-cast figures.  Until we see some more images or get some more solid information, I'm going to maintain a skeptical outlook on this.

I'd like to point out my balls predicted a mask less Kylo, and we got it.  Also a Rey too.  And my balls also called another BB8 which was the one in the multipack. 

I told you guys to trust in them.

The image I saw posted at JTA had a price of 12.99 Euros.  Not sure how much figures cost overseas...usually much more than here, but if not that would put it close to what we pay here.  I'm taking it as rumor for now until I see a official Hasbro release...I mean, we're talking about sweaty balls here.

Sweaty balls can be quite prescient.  Best to trust them above all!

I didn't think too much of the pricing.  European pricing is always somewhat off from U.S. pricing.  But the figure numbers?  And the specific release dates?  Those seem like red flegs to me.

I didn't see the numbers or release dates.  It'd be nice but we never get that info.

I was just in France last week.  Euros are closer to US dollars now and their figures run high.  12.99 would be about right for a basic figure, but pretty cheap compared to the 6" figures I saw ( about 20-25 Euros).

So rumor has it a SA Jedi Luke is in the near future.

And I didn't touch Jesse's sack to find this.

I hope that now only the Luke Figure has a lightsaber with it.
