Six awesome new 3 3/4-inch scale action figures, with five characters making their toy debut!
Figures include cool accessories and have the articulation you've come to love from The Vintage Collection and The Black Series.
Exclusive boxed set features a brand-new never-before-seen display box!

Nice!  Looking forward to some new stuff.  EE (and Adam Pawlus) have done well with their original exclusives (not just repaints) in the past.  I'm looking forward to this sight unseen.

Me too. Thinking a jawa theme but maybe not as the blurb seems to suggest otherwise and not sure there's 5 figures left in that segment of the movie. I'm game.

Maybe two of them are the six foot tall jawas?

Sounds like the characters will be a mix from multiple sources...

The characters date back as far as the original Star Wars movie and span the saga's rich history, bringing home a diverse range of interesting dudes.

I'm super excited to see what the six figures end up being. They specifically say that five of the characters are seeing their first toy appearance leaving the sixth figure to hopefully be a unique/new variation of a character we've gotten before.

The Sandcrawler graphics do seem to hint at something Jawa/droid related. My guess is that it's a Jawa with 5 new droids.  Especially since EE got those exclusive astromech multipacks a few years back.

Adam loves astromechs, so I wouldn't be surprised if this assortment was astromech (or at least droid) heavy.

For $80, I'd really hope it's more than just some repainted BAD figures.

Nevertheless, this is pretty exciting news. I'd love to see more SA TFA figures released using this method.

Exciting news! I'm even (especially?) intrigued about the box, given how Pawlus has pushed in the past for diorama-style packaging.

If the "previously released" character is an update of the Lars Family Power Droid, I'll eat my hat!

Never before made characters with Black Series caliber articulation?

Yes please.

I'm still kicking myself for not picking up Joker Squad or the two Mandalorian sets.

With Vintage and TBS style articulation and 5 of the 6 figures never being made before, I'll get two of these most likely!

Ordered.  Definitely thinking Jawa for 1-2 of the figures and the rest are probably droids.  I'd love a few new cloth jawas with articulation.  Is there another hint in that it says "3 3/4-inch scale" instead of just "3 3/4-inch?"  Feels like they wouldn't have bothered saying "scale" if they were all human sized...

Now that I've thought about it a little more, and read some of Adam's comments, I have a different theory.  That being this exclusive may be the way to release the last few remaining characters from the Kenner line (up through POTF) who have yet to be re-made in modern renditions.

Adam has also mentioned in some comments at a couple of other sites that this set will be unveiled before the weekend, and will not include characters from either ROGUE ONE or REBELS.
