4" TBS has limited showing...  R5-G19, Luke Hoth with improved headsculpt...  :(

More at SDCC though, but the 4" wad was small.  6" much more pow!

NO Dais for Jabba shown...  that jives with what we were told here at JD.  However, and I'll put it out there, that a 6" Scale Dais was at the very least, designed/mocked up in some capacity...  Too expensive for the assortment, obviously, but the idea is there.  :-X  :-*

I have a slight theory that they're holding 4" figures back to promote the new line look more than anything...  6", clearly took center stage.  It'll be telling about 4" if they're playing second fiddle at SDCC though and 6" is equal to or surpasses them in what's shown.

If that happens I think 4" articulated figures are on their way out.

I'm curious, what 2 Clones for TCW final season were they planning?  Hmmm...  That's interesting, and will be a topic of some debate since they're eating up some 4" slots.

Considering they are holding back images of the Spirit Vader and Hoth Han (and Ree Yees and Starsher if you only go by the presentation) for SDCC. Wave 5 probably won't hit until after.

The showroom had a nice surprise in having ReeYees and Doallyn present.  My pics are downloading from my camera now, hopefully (hotel internet connection coperating) they should be going up soon!

One kind of looked like Wolffe, but not exactly.  The other was more of a green color, kind of like Captain Lock or whatever his name was, but Phase II for both.  Also sounds like that lost Captain Rex will hit the Black Series too later this year finally.  Outlook not so good for the missing two BAD astromech from the droid factory though :(

Not yet...  but there was a lot of hinting that a dais with Salacious Crumb could maybe be it's own thing at some point.

Posted so far:
Hasbro Black Series - 3.75"
Hasbro Black Series - 6"

Working on Rebels/Legends/Mission Series next...  but first a look at the 2014 Black Series card, which is like 1000 times better than last year IMHO. ;)

Great coverage Jeff!

I agree about the new Black Series card back.

It serves as a great companion line to the new Saga Legends card back and also makes it so there's a great chance we may at least get The Inquisitor and Kanan in the collector line.

Great photos, Jeff!  And thanks for making the trip to our frozen neck of the woods.  Even with all of the snow here, NYC is probably pretty mild compared to the cold you guys have been braving in Minnesota.

I would guess one would have to be ARC Trooper Fives as he plays a prominent role in "Season 6". Not sure about the other guy but haven't seen any photos yet to ID either. I wish they would use the original TCW ARC Trooper sculpt...that thing was perfect.

Great to get these two guys though, and even better to hear Rex may finally be on the way.  :)

Anyone else's wallet start crying after these Toy Fair pictures start showing up?
The 6 in. The 3 3/4 in. The vehicles. Ugh
