Some Hasbro Star Wars panel details:
Quote
Join members of the Hasbro and Lucasfilm teams as they discuss the popular Hasbro Star Wars line. Attendees will get an in-depth look at Hasbroís latest action figure offerings, and word on the Holonet is there may also be a few surprises, including a special product reveal.

So... "special product reveal" has to mean finally showing us the first batch of TFA toys, right?

Gotta be like one toy.  This won't end without anger.

You're right.  People will be upset if we don't see anything.  People will be upset if we do see something (crying about spoilers and Hasbro ruined the movie for them).

I'm among like 5% who is always excited, for any show, and any info...  I'm maybe gullible?  Dumb?  I always have hope there's something I'll like.  More often than not, there is.  Doesn't mean it's perfect, or what Hasbro rolls out will all impress or interest me either. 

I mean there's always good with bad...  $13 figures, paint aps...  But hey, Wolffe is pretty cool, and a new Han Carbo right?  With the arm binders we've never gotten!

It'd be nice if they showed non-spoiler examples from each line.  e.g. here is a $7 Poe in 5POA, and here is a $13 Han in 14 POA.

I'd like to see more too, but who knows, since it's getting close to release time they may show quite a bit?  Then again the line may only have non-spoiler-ish stuff in it anyway, and only be made up of what we've seen in the trailer so far besides Luke/Leia and the droids?

I'm wondering if it'll be that big/broad of a line, since super hero lines for movies seemed sort of watered down, at least compared to Star Wars lines.

The scale/scope of the line will be interesting to see... 
- will there be just 5POA and 6"; or 5POA, 3.75" SA, and 6"?
- How will they break up character selection across the two scales (3.75" and 6")?
- Will the line run all the way into next Fall and then roll over into Rogue One or will it have to take the "Marvel Summer" off like the line has done the past few years?

At this point, after months and months of "no comment" from Hasbro, I'm more interested in finally learning about what we'll be getting (3.75" 5POA and/or 3.75" Collector), how much it's going to cost us ($8 vs $15), and what the quality will be at those prices (deco, accessories, etc).   

The actual character selection of the figures is kinda secondary to all that since we all know the first few waves will have the main characters and Stormtrooper variants galore. :P

This is what I'm especially interested in... and price point.

Also, I hope that they reveal the Walgreens exclusive figure (even though we probably to know who it already know what it is).

I'm thinking 6", 5POA, 4" SA in some limited form...  It's clear by the SDCC exclusives we've gotten now for a while that 4" SA is on their backburner.  A new movie won't help that.  I have this glimmer of hope they wouldn't ignore that all together, but I also have the rest of me saying they very well may, and I'll be a far more wealthy man by the end of 2015 because of it.  :-\

Getting closer...  starting to see some "floor set-up" type pics on Twitter and movie sites

Looks like there will be a pretty good Force Friday push.

I'm anxious, gotta admit.  Not in a bad way, just in a "I want confirmation" kind of way so I know what my financial future holds, ya know?  Is that weird?  Probably.  :-\

The early word on the street is that fans of articulation are not going to be happy after the Hasbro showing.

No reason they can't show off some new Rebels figures though!  :)
