The $170 TIE was leaked out in a list on JTA (I think) a few weeks ago. Hope it's amazing for that kind of dough.

And just like that the collector focused Star Wars 3.75" figure line died with a whimper.

We need a Padme meme with that on it.  ;D

I'm not surprised by the lack of 4" figures and I'm fine with it.  I will likely pick up the Farmboy Luke and Sabine.  Maybe Jango if he comes with the bells and whistles of jet packs and weapons...  I didn't see if Jango came with interchangeable heads or removable helmet... does anyone know?

Well, don't we have that figure reveal coming up soon?  17 minutes or so?  There could still be hope.

Based on new booth photos I've seen so far on Twitter, the 1:30p figure reveals are just the stuff they announced at the panel...  we'll see if anything else pops up in the cases.

3.75" Rebels S2 Inquisitor guy is nice...   not any obvious added articulation there though. (maybe wrists? can't tell if that's a cut joint or just the glove sculpt).

The Inquisitors have a standard issue lightsaber or it's just the mock-up?

The TIE is just insane. I seriously wonder how many people will buy this thing. Love the pilot as well. Not bothered by the lack of reveals as I'm actually enjoying the prospect of walking into 9/4 without a clue of what I'll find. Don't like the soft goods on Farmboy Luke. Strange choice honestly and reminds a little too much of the VOTC one from 2004 which I disliked.

I remember the old days when Toy Fair & onvention reveals...spend like an hour+ looking at cool upcoming products.

Now, it's a 5 minute shrug.

Yeah they can stop the tap dance at any time, I agree.  The outcome will be what it is...  So just say what the line's 3.75" presence will be (5POA only?  A total of figures in that scale at launch?  What?), and be done.  Don't even reveal stuff, just give some numbers and specifics, and let the chips fall.  That'd be nice for all involved.

Hey - it's old Rex!  Pic showed up in Hasbro's FTP under the "Star Wars Universe" banner...  so that makes FOUR 3.75" figures for the Fall.

The JediDefender SDCC 2015 Hasbro Image Gallery has been updated with today's reveals and press images.  Nice shots in there, take a look if you haven't already! :)

Just thought I'd say after watching the BTS video and following the panel - you know, who cares about the toys. We're going to get a special film I think and I'm glad we're all here to see it. The rest is just extra. Can't wait.
