I thought there was supposed to be a smaller vehicle w/figure in the assortment with the Wampa & Luke and there was also going to be a mid-size vehicle line in that $30 price point. Any word on those items?

Many SOLO items were held back for paid reveals closer to the April launch date...

$20 Class A (‘Nemesis’ Chariot w/Nemesis)
$30 Class B (Han Speeder with Han)
? Class C (TIE Fighter)

Jayson has been doing an excellent job keeping track of these things... check out his “rumor” list if you haven’t been doing so. ;)

Is the Amazon Exclusive 3-Pack of Droids 6" or 3.75" scale?  I took a look and didn't spot any discussion about them in either section?

6" TBS.  Hasbro has actually done a fairly decent job with their official photography so that you can tell the various line offerings apart.  The 6" TBS figures have a small STAR WARS - THE BLACK SERIES logo in the lower left hand corner, and are shot against a black/grey wash background.  The Vintage Collection images have the same background as The Black Series, but feature a Vintage Collection banner across the top of the image.  And the SOLO line figures are shot against a white background.

Ah, okay great.  Before even TBS being included didn't answer the question fully because the Walmart line was called that too - but now I suppose that if it's officially called The Vintage Collection that'll make it simpler.  Thanks!

I noticed the color coding a little while back, but it's still a bit confusing with different lines and some of the same characters popping up in all three.

Hell, I saw a bunch of people calling the R5 unit in the astromech 3-pack R5-D4.  In this regard I'm happy to see Steve Evans of Hasbro is actively engaged on social media to clear up some of the potential confusion.

Because I got too tired last night and never got around to starting threads for those. (I guess if I collected the 6" I probably would have made the time, but I don't so... :P)

Forgot about those honestly.  If it weren't for the astromech group I'm on on facebook I'd have forgotten about them totally since that group hasn't stopped bitching about them since they saw them.  ::)
