Not as much TBS as people are hoping, 4" anyway, and lots of bitching post-show.  On a real limb on that one huh? :)

We'll be doing as much, as quickly as possible during the Hasbro presentation...  On the front page mostly, but I'll update whatever I can, as fast as I can.  I'll probably put a post in here that I'll just edit with bullet points as we go too.

All I know is, if I don't soil myself badly in the next hour and a half, I am going to feel utterly shortchanged after all these months of excretory anticipation.  :D

Someone particular has been teasing that there's a soil-worthy moment on it's way, haven't they?  Would that be someone who uses as pseudonym for site reporting, as well as book publications?

If it doesn't happen, it's time for the Ex-Lax, isn't it... after all that we've been saving up for this moment.  ;)

Yep, if you talk the talk, you damn sure gotta walk the walk.  ;)

I can almost feel the gentle breeze from the backpedalling now...

I haven't. 

I like some of the stuff, but I know some people won't give a poop on stuff like those Clone commanders, or whatever.

I'm enjoying what they showed.  Slightly disappoitned how tiny that Stormtrooper transport was though.  Yikes.  I'll buy one though. :)

The 6" reveals are alright.  But not worth evacuating one's colon.

So the Clone Commanders...  I like.  Medal Ceremony Chewie is a new-ish headsculpt on an old body.  Ceremony Leia's a nice and needed update to her.

I was a little bummed that the Stormtrooper Transport is SO small.  Smaller than the original vintage toy, so I'll be buying a vintage toy at this point I think to fix that up maybe or plan my own.  I'll buy the Rebels one just because though.  It's different.  It's new.

Some of the Legends/MS figures are ok looking but still not my bag.  Outside custom fodder I have no interest.

Few exclusives was disconcerting.  No K-Mart sets this year?  Yikes. :(

I'm not disappointed per se, as I really like most of the Rebs vehicles.  I'm just not as hyped as I hoped and there really wasn't a ton shown to think too much about unless you're a 6" fellow.

6" clearly is big for them, and will clearly be big for them.  They expressed how much they liked working on that line, as noted in our coverage on the front page.

I can't be mad at that because hey, being able to do all new versions of characters who've been done to death is a nice thing for them.

I dug the Clone Commanders, but it just makes me jones for Phase I versions of Cody/Rex and others, haha.
