Were the sneak preview Ep2 figures their own case assortment? Or did they slip in with POTJ stuff? I seem to recall them being a completely seperate deal because of the TRU sku#s that still linger on the shelves.

The Post-OTC case assortment (Sly, etc) box has this printed on the side:

SW E3 BASIC FIGURE ASST W1R1 05

So I guess they'll not be ******* up the retail channel with tons of sku shifts and different cases to order up to ROTS.

The preview figs for Ep II were indeed an entirely different line.  I can't provide an case numbering information, but the cards were of course totally different and they shipped in their own case. 

I remember it distinctly because it was one of those rare times when I walked into a TRU at just the right moment.  They'd just put out four full cases, it was awesome.  Remember this was just after Canada had been shafted on the last two waves of POTJ so finding figures from a new line so quickly was great.  Sadly that was at a time when TRU up here was charging $11.99 per figure :o  Still, it was so cool to find them.  And they never brought in another shipment either, which rather sucked the big one ::) >:(

The case assortment for the Episode 3 Preview wave...

SW E3 BASIC FIGURE ASST W3R1
Case Assortment: 85172000B
4x Figure #1 - 85362
4x Figure #2 - 85365
2x Figure #3 - 85363
2x Figure #4 - 85361

So, the question is, who matches up with who?

I'll guess 4x Greivous, 4x Wookie, 2x Droid, 2x Tion Meddon.

I'll second that as the logical casepack. Being Hasbro, those numbers are all probably reversed.

So I'm assuming the Wookiee is Tarrful?

I saw these last night.  That Wookie is pretty sweet looking.  All look to be very well done. I wonder what the fourth fig will be?  Wasnt it rumored to be some type of Astromech? I am assuming that this is the Preview wave that will be out soon.  Possibly Christmas?

I just saw those as well, and I think that they look pretty nice.  From the protos and now these that we have seen so far, it could be a good year for ROTS toys.  Granted, we haven't seen the "action feature" figures yet, but from what we have seen, it looks like we could be in for a good year of collecting.  I wonder how long it will be until we start seeing these on the pegs.  The earlier the better :).  Thanks for the links, they all look great to me.  Really liking the Tarfful figure, I hope that we see all sorts of nicely done Wookiees next year.

My initial reaction is that these look fantastic!  The General looks really nice as does Tarful.  I see Tion packs some weaponry.  I wonder if his character is in some action scenes?  I don't know since I have not been 100% up on the spoilers lately.  Anyway, yes, between these and those early prototypes it looks like the ROTS figures could be something special.  Some good articulation on the figures we have seen so far.  I'm ready for more pics and this movie!  :)

Wow.

These figures look great!  Lots of articulation where needed (Wookiee and General).

I can't wait for these...

These look awesome.  Really, really like the Wookiee.  Hopefully all ROTS figures are this good.

They are really, really good.   I think I like the Wookie the best.

Ok, so I think it's safe to say that Episode III's toyline is on par with the VOTC now...
