The Force Awakens Toy Line - Rumors and Speculation
« on: January 5, 2015, 11:36 AM »
Rebelscum's Hasbro: The Force Awakens Product Rundown

Nice rumor list from 'scum.  Nothing confirmed, but I wonder if this list "leaked" to help stem some of the "OMG 3.75inch Star Wars figures are dead" rumors out there?

That is one exhaustive list. It does quell some of the sky is falling type of panic that might have been induced by that first glimpse of those 6" figures. And it's kind of funny. I had forgotten how big a movie year line can be.  Even if a lot of it is kid oriented or gimmick laden.

Hunter PR statement regarding Toy Fair and the fact that there won't be any TFA toy line reveals

From Hunter PR to Star Wars media Regarding Hasbro's Showroom at the 2015 International Toy Fair.

With Toy Fair approaching and Hasbro's annual Entertainment Brand Preview Day scheduled for Saturday, February 14th, we wanted to reach out and clarify what Hasbro's Star Wars presence will entail at this year's show.

As usual, Hasbro will be exhibiting a variety of fun and exciting Star Wars products from across its portfolio of brands, including Star Wars action figures, Star Wars Galactic Heroes and more. There will be no toys based on Star Wars: The Force Awakens (Star Wars Episode VII) shown at Toy Fair this year.

Obviously, we know that there's a huge amount of anticipation for Star Wars toys this year, and we wanted to be forthcoming about this as we know it might make a difference for some of you in regards to travel plans. While we're happy to host all of you at Entertainment Brand Preview Day and look forward to having you check out the latest and greatest toys from Star Wars and Hasbro's other exciting brands, we want you to have as much information as possible to be able to plan your travel and coverage.

We're extremely excited for the year ahead—which will undoubtedly be one of the most exciting years ever for fans of Star Wars and Hasbro's Star Wars toys—and we look forward to working with each of you extensively over the coming year.

I guess the grand unveiling for Episode 7 toys will be at Celebration, which makes sense I suppose. It's just a bummer that all we will probably see at Toy Fair are the same TBS figures that have been shown since SDCC.

Yeah, I'm not honestly shocked at all and it was kind of impacting my plans.  I have a feeling all engines are full on TFA and "new" between now and then may be slim, and TF is going to be a slow show of goods for that gap.

A 6" starfighter?  That's got the potential to be enormous.

This doesn't actually strike me as far fetched.  Seems more likely than a 3 or 4 foot long X-Wing, especially given that I don't see any mention of 6" scale figures in that rumor list.

Hmmm, that is some interesting stuff there. I don't see them trawling out high quality SA figures for $7.99. Guessing these will be 5 POA, let the rioting commence.  :P

The vehicle assortment is intriguing. What can you really get for $10? A mini-rig? Even without the pack-in figures that seems a bit low. I could see the Class I Deluxe being the current scaled down ships like the Slave I, etc. Or maybe a mini-rig with 2 pack-in figures like they were doing near the end of TCW. What I'm really hoping for the Class II Vehicle is a return to properly scaled 3&3/4" compatible stuff.

Black Series 2-packs could be intriguing, but they will probably see this as a way to re-package pegwarming crud so it will end up being a bunch of Han/Greedo packs hanging around again.

I look forward to seeing this report showing up on the other sites' front pages in a week or two.  :D

Maybe the line posted for the 4" figures is TFA with the 5 PoA ones keeping the same (or would that be listed there)? 

There's nothing about the deluxe 6" line either, so I'm thinking it just wasn't listed and is keeping the same DPCI.

They don't have Mission Series, $10 3 3/4", or Legends listed.  But they do have a replacement 6" figure DCPI at the same price point. 

Maybe this listing is just the new DPCIs and they'll keep the existing DCPIs 3 3/4" DCPIs active.

Hopefully it'll be somewhere between the two extremes... They sold the reduced articulation as a way to cut prices, then over the course of the first year or so, the price creeps up by a third.  They could just have a little more to them without being SA figures... maybe better accessories?
