2014 Star Wars Rebels line look revealed at Hasbro's NYCC2013 Party -

Jesse James:
I love Stormtroopers.  I love Star Wars.  I love lava reflection as an iconic sort of image of Star Wars overall...  I love this card.  It's got a lot of familiar but it's different at the same time. 

I may not be buying these depending on how well they're done (or not), but I think the card's pretty appealing at least. :)

Press release says these will have "multiple points of articulation"... but I suppose 'multiple' could just mean five, so I'll be waiting for Toy Fair to see if we get a look at them before I decide whether to buy or not.

Here's the full press release:

--- Quote ---In anticipation of Lucasfilm's Star Wars Rebels panel at New York Comic Con (Saturday, October 12, 2013, from 2:45 p.m. - 3:45 p.m. in room 1E of the Javits Convention Center) Hasbro is officially unveiling the packaging treatment for its Star Wars Rebels 3.75-inch action figure line supporting the upcoming animated series.

Star Wars Rebels continues the epic tradition of the legendary Star Wars saga with all-new exciting, action-packed adventures. It is a dark time in the galaxy, as the evil Galactic Empire tightens its grip of power from world to world. As the series begins, Imperial forces have occupied a remote planet, ruling with an iron fist and ruining the lives of its people. But there are a select few who are brave enough to stand up against the endless Stormtroopers and TIE fighters of the Empire: the clever and motley crew of the starship Ghost. Together, this ragtag group will face threatening new villains, have thrilling adventures, and become heroes.

Hasbro's Star Wars Rebels line, featuring highly detailed 3.75-inch action figures with multiple points of articulation, will hit store shelves in 2014.

Jesse James:
I find it so sad that the MH line has fewer points of articulation than a Lego mini-figure...  hell, those HALO mini-figs look like SA by comparison to them too. :P

That said, if it's realistic, they have my attention at the very least.  Given its status as a kids line though, I'm sure, then I figure it'll be 5 POA stuff...  Still though, realistic will at least have my attention and I'm sure I'll nab some stuff to custom up.

Curious how they go forward with vehicles now...  Same approach as current, or go back to larger and go with a price increase?  I'm assuming they went where they did because they'd hit a saturation point on price hikes, but downsizing hasn't worked either it seems.  That said, they've only put out things everyone already has...  so a miniature "ghost" may do well, or a mini OT era ship or three?  I dunno.

I'm very curious what's to come.

They're 5 POA  :-\
