New metal helmets coming...  Sabine & Vader from Rebels (stylized so Vader looks all McQuarrie-ish) and Boussh/Boba helmets.  I'm kinda into these I think.

Guess the Vader Helmet wasn't easy to scan...  The team felt really inspired by the Figure Photography Contest they ran, and I can see why.  Some of that stuff was insane.  Some of it used Galactic Trading Post "Space Walls" too for hyper realism I noticed.  :P

OK that's wrapped up, and I have things to do, so I'm out.  Hope you guys enjoyed our front page report on all this, and all the social media coverage too from Scott!

What's a Fenn Rau? Is that a 6" figure?

That's a pretty cool lineup for the Black Series 6" figure line.  I'm happy with pretty much all of those.  I'm a little puzzled/disappointed that Jaina Solo won the poll, but whatever.

The AT-ACT looks pretty cool.  And I'm actually a little tempted to get one because the smartphone control and walking feature are things we've just never seen in a 3.75" figure system vehicle before.  The removable bunker and 3 x pack in figures are a nice feature, too.

Disappointed by the small 3.75" figure showing.  But it seems like they are very clearly holding back for the ROGUE ONE line.

The AT-ACT is now on display in the Hasbro booth as part of a pretty extensive diorama.  I think we'll probably see some close-up images when the collecting site reporters wrap up the sessions that they're sitting in currently.

3.75" Rebels animated figure. He's the Mandalorian pilot that shoots down Hera (and also shows up in the aerial battle on Mygeeto (?) during the Kanan comic book series).

3.75" Death Trooper is on display now.

Diorama with RO Stormtrooper and Shore Trooper with AT-ACT - the trooper that comes with the walker appears to be different than standard issue Shore Trooper. Likely the Driver.

Looking interesting so far, albeit all of the figures look like they're 5 POA.  From what I can see it looks like these are the figures on tap:

BASIC FIGURES
-Imperial Stormtrooper
-Imperial Death Trooper
-Imperial Shore Trooper

AT-ACT PACK-INS
-Bunker
-Jyn Erso
-Imperial Astromech droid
-Imperial Armor Trooper (not sure of the exact name here.  But this looks like the same type of trooper that's in that Hover Tank in the Jedah scenes from the trailer)

The AT-ACT "Pilot" appears to be the tanker in the hatch of the hover tank thing in the trailer...  Imperial "Tanker"?  I dunno.

Toy Ark has some pretty good images of the entire ROGUE ONE diorama.  And I can distinctly make out both the Shore Trooper as well as the Armor Trooper.
