:o  Outstanding!

I wonder if that's a projectile between its front legs 

This has the potential to be quoted out of context..  ;)

And I will be hunting for two of these, at least!

I had sort of forgot I preordered this online, but I got notice that the latest set of Cinema Scenes (Snowspeeder, Porkins X-Wing) are in stock and ready to ship at BBTS - so these might show up in stores before too long.  Looking forward to these, the Snowspeeder in particular.

I was looking forward to the Snowspeeder set before, but knowing there is an AT-AT on the way, the snowspeeder became even cooler (if that's possible).  I don't think I'll grab the 4th (5th?) X-Wing set, but I'm definitely buying the snowspeeder for the boys...  ;)

Although I was hoping they would have the upcoming AT-AT on display, it was still a nice showing for GH at Toy Fair.  Above all else, I can't wait to pick up that Ackbar/Nunb 2 pack - Ackbar in particular has been on my personal "most wanted" list for this line for awhile.  It was nice to see some OT Galactic Heroes are still on the way later this year, with so much focus on CW stuff right now.  Really wish we could have seen that AT-AT though :).

Yeah, it looks like they only showed product through August.  I'm hopeful San Diego will have at least as many surprises.  Here's hoping they include any sort of Clone vehicle, like a gunship.

Do you think the 8-pack Cinema Scenes will still come in the size we're used to?  Something smaller like the Transformers?  Still $20? 

Ackbar and Rebel Fleet Trooper basically terminate my must haves to complete an acceptable OT assortment.  Unbelievable.  With Lama Su, young Boba, and the yellow E2 commander, that movie is getting close, too.  Zam would pretty much do it, though a Captain Typho and Dexter wouldn't hurt. 

Episode 1, though... geez... every time new product gets announced I'm bummed by no Watto.

At the show and in the presentation they were showing the Porkins set with a repack of the bigger, electronic, Red 5 (and they tossed in an R4-P17?).  Previous photos had shown the smaller open/closing x-wing, with new generic (or Red 6ish) markings.  I'm vaguely curious to see what they ended up actually shpping (does the bigger x-wing even fit in a standard Cinema Scene?).

I'll probably pick up the new OT packs.

Sigh...so much for cutting back. :-\

Rumor has it that the AT-AT is pushed out to 2010. . .

I found the snowspeeder pack this afternoon at TRU in VA.  It is very nice, hopefully the AT-AT comes sooner then later.

I grabbed the GH Snowspeeder box set tonight (GH Probe Droid = kickass).  Can't wait to get that GH AT-AT...  I hope they find a way to squeeze it in this year (maybe I'll have to bug my Target sources to try to pick it up). 

I saw the DS Assault set too, but I left it behind.  I just couldn't bring myself to pay $25 for the 4th (5th?) release of the X-Wing just to get the 2x new OT figures.  I guess I'll just hope they put Jek in another set someday...

I found the new sets at Target this morning.  Picked up the Snowspeeder - and left the X-Wing for now...

I can stomach the $22.99 price at Target, but I will stop when these sets reach $24.99 across the board.  Just getting too expensive.

My friend and I saw these, I bought the Padme/Jar Jar, he bought the rest at least 3 months ago at a Target and I've never seen them again or heard anyone else say they have since so I don't know what that was all about.
