Basically, yeah...  They also like to curtail the things that are mistakes too, and remind people that when you hear mistaken reports/rumors from sites out there, you shouldn't hold it against them and remember that sources online get information second-hand...  They've expressed in the past how rumors do, to an extent, spiral out of control.

Add to it then that some sites I believe put out "rumors" that are basically fanboy wishlists anyone could come up with and still get some right and some wrong, and you've got a whole dynamic to the rumor-reporting thing that really can get people's hopes up and then let some people down...  Not everything over time has come from really concrete sources and some has been more off the mark than on despite being claimed to be "valid"...  It happens.  Hasbro's reminding people that, till it's out of their lips, it's just gossip and may not come to fruition.

Certain things though, like the AT-TE, have been public knowledge pretty much...  The UBP's were the similar in that we'd seen 'em, we'd seen DPCI's, and we knew they were on the way, but Hasbro wouldn't comment.  Seems more like the policy is just an across-the-board one even when we've seen an item they haven't personally confirmed yet is all.

That's PR departments for ya. On some level, they sometimes get a perverse joy out of messing with people.

It's really too bad that this stuff leaks as early as it does.  How cool would it have been to hear about the AT-TE for the first time, from Jeff at Toy Fair?

There's really nothing being shown at Toy Fair that we don't already know about.

....BUT WE WILL IN A FEW LONG DAYS


Man, you said it. A few LONG days. It's Thursday now and it still feels a week off. This weekend just can't get here soon enough!

I'll be parked at the 'puter all night salivating.

I'll have several collecting website's homepages open, waiting on any news of toyfair.

For me it'll be like Christmas night. Not sleeping well due to the anticipation, then waking up in the morning to lots of joy.

I've got a friend going to the early bird whatchamacallit on Saturday. It's supposed to be a 5 hour event. I'm hoping to find out some prize info then. No pictures are allowed though... :(

Some early photos have leaked, and while large, it doesn't appear that it's to-scale as one had hoped...  this seems to put the Rebelscum length estimates in some doubt, though they did come from European sources which I'm not sure are always as accurate as others over there...  It doesn't look like it definitely is, however our rumor report on the opening troop doors does appear to be 100% on the money. :)
