All I want from this line, especially if it's getting walked back... is Sim Aloo.

Bonus if they did a 3-pack with the other unmade dignitaries.

Double bonus if they did a fresh 5-pack with all of them.

Quadruple bonus if they reveal Tonnika Sisters.

I'd be over the moon for any never-before-made OT figure.

Is there a reason there is an extra "i" in toy fair this year?  :-*

I'll just say I hope this past year was all misdirection  and we get an announcement for a Death Star playset--whether mind-blowing HasLab or low-key Solo-style cardboard assembly. Just finally something...

I'm hoping Hasbro makes an announcement that they are fixing there nearly decade long distribution problems.

I would like to see a preview of some Wave 2 Resistance figures or some ships from the show.

I'd love to hear more info on possible Clone Wars toys too...

He just did.

And Iíll say it too!

In part because it would mean the reports of no more non-vintage collection 3.75 until episode 9 arenít true, and partially because I donít want such a small run for a given movie or show.

I just hope thereís something new and cool.  I liked last year and if it just gives us TVC folks something akin to that ok then.

I'm silently hoping for a TIE Defender.

Since the TIE Defender got featured in the REBELS series, I would think it stands a greater chance than it did before.  But Hasbro has likely shifted their focus to the current film and tv projects.  The TIE variant I'm hoping for is the TIE RB (or TIE Brute) from SOLO.  That was a really cool new take on a TIE fighter!

As for anything else? 
VEHICLES - I *THINK* we're going to see a vehicle for the RESISTANCE line and some more figures.  As for TVC?  There are the rumors of a couple of vehicles, and it sounds like there's an X-wing and possibly a reissue of the Skiff.

FIGURES - We got so much information about the TVC line that I don't know what Hasbro can tell us that would be surprising.  Wave 4 is shipping and we know the character lineups for waves 5 and 6.  The big reveals would seem to be for the retail and convention exclusives.

The only significant surprise that I'm hoping for is for Hasbro to have some prototype figures for the return of CLONE WARS as the return of that series is coming this fall.
