Oh, good one Steve.  I didn't even think about that.  That's another legit gripe. 

If you don't have a TRU (or whoever) near you, you'll be resorting to TRU.com to help you out... and we all know how much love and care they put into getting their customers MOMC product.  NONE.   :-\

At least there are forums like these and others where collectors can seek help...

Hmmm.  This Chrome Series name has some possibilities.  Especially since Captain Phasma is the new "It" trooper with the Chrome Helmet.

Here's Hasbro full line-up. No mention of a "Chrome Series" and no 3.75" Black Series figures:

Not quite their "full line" up, but a good chunk of it.

If you look through the catalogue embedded at the end of the article it shows the full lineup.

Exclusives are usually not included in those things.

Okay, so exclusives aside it's their full line-up. Any store exclusives will consist mainly of repaints anyways. It's not like we're going to get an entire line of 3.75" Force Awakens figures with all brand new molds as a store exclusive.

Look at TRU's exclusive G.I. Joe line. It's mainly repaints with a few new elements here and there like a new head or a new gun. If Hasbro is planning a store exclusive line called "The Chrome Series" what makes anyone think it's going to be all new figures? That's not cost-effective for Hasbro.

Has nothing to do with being thin skinned. I like to avoid making things personal on forums, especially over minor disagreements.

There have been store exclusives that had a lot of new tooling. Force Unleashed sets...Wal-Mart's Jabba the Hutt, Big Slave 1....

Also, a rumored SA line list at another site included a few characters that would likely mostly reuse existing tooling.
