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

Just out of curiosity what characters were on the list and what store is supposed to have the exclusive line?

4. Stormtrooper (with dent in helmet from hitting blast door)

I have been a staunch supporter of Hasbro being mediocre and not the Devil's minion as many have lately but I'm gonna be pissed if I find out those figs are exclusively at Tru or wherever when the east coasters tell me at 11pm central

Seems a bit more wishlist than anything else.  I mean, if we were going to include EVERYTHING that Hasbro has shown and not released, why not include the A-Wing pilot and second Utai that never made it to market?

Surprised to see what looks like a little corroboration for that JTA post from From 4-LOM to Zuckuss, albeit with a somewhat different lineup of figures:

E7 Kylo
E7 Firs
E6 Vader
E4 Chewie
E4 Han
E4 Luke
E4 Prin
E7 Poe
E7 Finn
E7 Rey

RE: TRU Vintage line. Should we pull the vintage thread out of the child boards?

Perhaps some of the figures on the older list will appear in the vintage line.

Interesting.  The Han listing doesn't seem like it matches up to the press release, which indicated a ROTJ version of Han Solo.  And at least three of those characters weren't included in the press release at all.

Hasbro is going out of their way in the Q&As to kill that TRU exclusive TVC rumor...

Q&A with Imperial Shipyards:
"The rumor is not true. Vintage collection will definitely come back in the future when the time is right."

Q&A with SSG:
"3 3/4” super-articulated figures are exclusive to Walmart right now.  If we decide to create packs like you’re talking about, like the Black Series packs for TRU—while nothing’s in development as of right now, if we did that, it would stay to Walmart.  That scale, that expression, is currently exclusive to Walmart."

After months of vague answers about super articulated 3 3/4", now they are straight forward.

Fine with me, Vintage packaging is an excuse for them to charge more money at this point.

Hasbro explained that all of the Original Trilogy figures released in this line will be repacks. There will be NO NEW Original Trilogy figures. (The same is true for Prequel Trilogy figures.) The focus is on The Force Awakens right now and any slots for OT will be figure we have already seen at an earlier time (save for the delayed Princess Leia).

Yeah, sounds like it's gonna be a good wait for any new episode 1-6 figures.

That's fine by me.  TFA kind of is important and means all new stuff.  Anything OT or PT would be wildly obscure or a resculpt...  While I want lots of that, given the timing and need for "newness" to push it, I'm ok with TFA being a focus.  If some of the repacks are nice that's just gravy.  Luke was the only one i liked in the initial wave but chewbacca makes sense.  That Vader...  Eh whatevs.  Can't all win.  Kicking off with ALL repacks is what stinks to me.  :-\  But they've sold well here soooo...

Not excited about this news at all. Somehow I feel that the 3 3/4 inch Black series line will not do well enough to justify continuing it by Walmart standards YET, I won't be able to find any just the same.
