Well, I just woke up with clean underpants, so I call shenanigans on that BS.
Looks like some really nice looking stuff, and a few decent surprises in there. Random thoughts:
Rex, Doom and Gree all came out very well...the paint jobs are rough but i realize these are just crude samples.
Commander Wolffe looks terrific too, but what happened with Commander Thorne? No mention or sightings?
I am literally buying every Jedi Temple Guard I can get my hands on. That is an insanely cool sculpt, if only he could bend his elbows!
For Rebels, I think the only real "new" stuff they hit us with was the Troop Transport and that Sabine/Stormy 2-pack, but that is fine, there was a lot of focus there overall and I am looking forward to seeing these on the shelves this Fall. Everything they showed off looked cool, nice color palettes, and man, that AT-DP driver rocks!
So much 6" love! (yesthatswhatshesaid) Holy mother, the TIE Pilot is off the chain...that guy is gonna fly off shelves. The Wampa and Tauntaun deluxe sets were likewise outstanding. They do seem to be getting better with the human sculpts. That Han Stormtrooper is just an amazing piece of work. And the helmet fits!
Count me in for the Shadow Squadron exclusive, it's only a question of how many can I restrict myself to buying. That's a cool idea, I could really army-build me some of those Black Stormtroopers....
Nice that we got confirmation of the Emperor, but no mention of 3PO? Does this back up the speculation that he will be the Jedi-Con exclusive?
I can't say I'm disappointed, I didn't expect too much this year, definitely not underwhelmed. Or overwhelmed either.
