I still think this is going to be pretty darn dinky unfortunately, so I'm probably out...  Then again I bought the Troop transport and I knew before I did so I was going to be disappointed, and I was.  :-\

I wanted a McAwing so badly, and this just is meh, for me at least.  I agree that I don't think it's shown sized properly in the pic though, but I think it's still going to be significantly off.  Hope I am wrong though!  Would love to add an arrowhead to the fleet.

A-Wing scale is widely arguable (the models, matte, etc. all don't jive), but the Rebels A-Wing is pretty solidly represented in the show relative to people...  It's not "tiny" for sure.  Not huge either, but definitely not  like that appears to be.

From this GH photo it looks like there's a new 3.75" Stormtrooper on the way.  This seems to have flown in under the radar at Preview Night last night.

Nice catch.  I'll buy a few of those.

Looks like the 5-POA one from two-ish years ago.

It looks like an all new sculpt from what I see. A better one. No more pointy shoulder armor.

I mean, I know it's not the two year old one, it just reminds me of it in terms of style and overall appearance.

Yeah, the 5POA OTC stormtrooper reminds me of the previous 5POA OTC Stormtrooper too.   ;)

Sitting here waiting for Hasbro stuff...  We're going to try to keep up with it on the front page like before, for coverage as it rolls in.  This is always a bear to do when you have an actual job you should be at. :P

6" Qui Gon Jinn and Hera Syndulla...  Hera looks awesome BTW.  Makes me wish I had a good 3.75" figure of her, realistic styled. :(

6" Tusken Raider!

Looks awesome, and will have interchangeable staff blades so you can make different gaffi sticks it appears. :)

The Lando Figure's cape looks pretty intricate.  The higher the scale on that material, the tougher that job would get I think.
