Star Wars Rebels Toy Rumors!
« on: October 30, 2013, 03:05 PM »
I found these listings on Hasbro's Customer Service page:





Notable listings are the Hero Series Inquisitor and Hero Series Kanan from the first picture, and the Rebels Blaster and Rebels Stormtrooper from the second picture.

Hmmmm, interesting...  :)

THanks Greg!

Sooooo, wonder who Kanan is?  We know who the Inquisitor is.

I'm guessing Holo Grievous must be an E3 thing.

That Holo Grievous is the Clone Wars one from 2008. (item #88560) and is not new...

New stuff has item/assortmen numbers in the Axxxx format now for the most part. ;)

Yeah there's BF 2 Multi-packs listed...  etc.  Lots of old stuff mixed in, but all the new seems to have that A before it.  It may not ALL be new though.

I wonder if the HERO listing are the "soap bottle" figures. I think Marvel refers to those at Titan Heroes for their brand.

There goes my theory that Grievous would be an interactive hologram that guides the rebellion.

I'd guess the "REBELS STORMTROOPER" is the old kid-sized stormtrooper blaster toy again.

Yeah I'd imagine some roleplay stuff will be repaint/repackage junk for sure...  Seems likely I guess.

I'm getting more excited for this line, wish there had been hints of vehicles or battle packs.

Almost positive the Hero figures are the soap bottle figures. Kanan must be one of the protagonists.

Seems that Mission Series will see at least one Rebels set...  And then mains out in the Legends style for the most part.  Pretty standard guesses there, but good to know.

Part of the JTA report indicated that a large vehicle may be in the works for 2015.  Will that be the Ghost?  That's certainly debatable.  But with Episode VII on tap for a December 2015 release, I think that spot in the line may be for an Ep7 vehicle.

I disagree, I think The Ghost is an absolute no-brainer for late 2014/2015, especially if the show takes off. It's the iconic ship of the whole series and an interesting enough sculpt to appeal to kids and collectors alike. That one has to be in the works...

The Twilight was too so I don't think its a lock at the moment...  I think they may wait to see if the shows popular before committing to a big ticket toy.  There are still sdcc and such to go though.  I just could see them go conservative this time around is all.

I agree with Jesse it would seem they're playing it a little safe. I would think the window for this would be in the fall, since Fall '15 is going to be pretty much 100% Episode VII. Toy lines typically don't hang a big ticket item like this out in the spring or summer, but you never know. Maybe we will see it at SDCC. That would be cool, since I do think it would be a great toy.
