Yeah it's a completely new mold (very different from the original AWing, and much larger than the Rebels effort couple years back).  The pilot also looks like a superior effort to pilot figures from TFA.  Ship appears to have projectile feature designed into the lasers and possibly something underneath but no loose shots underneath that I've seen.  The box art implies something firing from the bottom though, yet the toy doesn't really show anything I can see.  Could just be something to do with the movie and nothing the toy has. 

Definitely a new model AWing though which is cool and even the pilot has a McQuarrie-esque look to her.

For some reason $350 is sticking in my mind but I forget when or even if I'm just remembering wrong but yeah I would say it's gotta cost at least what the last release did.

They could always release the TFA one redone slightly I suppose.

Eh if you waited before tho you won't like what it costs now according to Hasbro. :-X

I can't say Hasbro had much engagement aside from that initial launch even but yeah given a movie a year, Rebels is really a red headed stepchild in the LFL licensee pushing I guess.

Saw a scratch build model of the ghost recently and it's pretty sweet.  It'd make a nice model kit.

I figure I'll get one of each at some point.  I haven't preordered yet because that's a lot of figures and I try to prioritize Acid Rain preorders since they sell out fast and resupply is "iffy" at best if they'll even do it.  These I think will be easier to get but I'll still probably do one bulk order of a lot of Aliens/Predator toys.  I'm more into the Aliens than the Predator guys but I'll still support the Predators in hopes we get some humans from that series.

Yeah it's kind of all over the place but still it's something.  They don't have quite a few figures.  A shame about the line but I'm glad I got some for a much better price.  I didn't get Jon and he's really the only one I want at the moment that I wouldn't use for fodder, but maybe at some point.

I know these are kind of ass to a lot of people, but considering they're all we have in the scale for GoT, I noticed that some of them are on sale (or clearance?) at  They're more a customizing want for me, but I'd been passing till now.  And the wall playset is only $20 and a Tyrion figure so that's cool.

Kinda curious, just from a customizing pov, how intrusive, if at all, the commtech 2.0 is going to be?  I'm hoping not at all, but part of me feels like there is going to be something frustrating about a figure with a chip inside it when I go to simply dismantle it.

Yeah the $30 ships have my attention.  Initial pics of Ren's TIE left me disappointed but the speculated AWing?  I'm all ears on that.

I'd heard somewhere the origins Death Star is long dead but I could be wrong.  I don't know if it holds up well today.  Parts do and some don't, so I don't know. 😕  On this time will tell.  Clearly I think Hasbro isn't looking at "stackable" anything and want something with more diversity to it for the investment I guess, but at the price this might be cooler than it's being given credit.  I found the atact pretty cool as a focal thing for a kids collection.

Thanks Nick I may have my friends try and get me that if it's regularly available.

The telepathetic© Bor Gullet seemed less a beast and more just a guy with special skills, and ugliness.  I'd like to have him too even if he came in the beast line though but I didn't think he was much, if any, bigger than a regular figure.

I'm hoping for something pretty awesome here if the speculation is correct!  I don't have a Resistance fighter yet but would like to.

BMF really needs dusted off next year yes.

My buddies said the new protocols are much more nerve wracking to build especially if a crowd is there because the parts are so very similar with just minor sculpt differences.  I am definitely not gonna get hung up on having a 3po with all the arm variations or whatever.  That'd be nuts.  The domes and variety of color on the astromech line is one thing but this is much less interesting in that regard.  At least to me anyway.

I just doubt it's hallways, an office, or the Death Star Restrooms or whatever.

I think for the price, and what we've gotten for similar, you have at least a ballpark idea kind of what to expect maybe.  Forget the AT-ACT's price last year and it walked and all that too, but this appears to be the "biggie" for this year.
