    Article: Hasbro Star Wars Toy Fair Presentation

    Darth Vader is becoming the Mickey Mouse of Star Wars.

    Some great news in there, but I'm quite surprised that Galactic Heroes is being closed down, that took me aback.

    Tycho finally gets his carded Mouse Droid... if he can get into Comic-Con at all, he didn't get his badge thanks to the SDCC site's screwups.

    Ponda gets flippers and hands! That's crazy awesome.

    The rumors of the Jawa Sandcrawler seem to be not so accurate.

    Tycho's gonna lose his mind. More so than he already has.

    Good stuff coming from Hasbro for Star Wars. Just hope I get a great Vintage Jar Jar Binks for TPM.

    Hell, we still kinda need good figures of him for AotC. Both the Apartment and Senate Address outfits.

    I hope you get in, Tycho! That crap ain't right.
    Considering that you live nearby, you can make their lives a living Hell.
    May be a good idea to leave the rubber chickens at home, though.

    Why aren't you there with Steve Mike?

    The only way to get a SDCC badge the easy way is to get it at the Con the year before. I hope that service doesn't go away any time soon.

    The Death Star 12 pack sounds cool.

    I never go to Toy Fair, the expense of flying to New York, not to mention the time I'd have to take off work, is too much for me.

    I suspect this year it will be, now that the con is being run by clowns, and everybody knows they have to do it.

    Scum has a pic from the showroom of the Death Star set....

    Looks like:

    Luke Skywalker: Jedi Knight (w/ Manacles)
    Stormtrooper
    Han Solo: Endor Gear
    R2-D2: Jabba's Sail Barge
    Darth Vader
    B-Wing Pilot
    Salacious Crumb

    Admiral Ackbar
    Boba Fett
    Endor Rebel Soldier
    Wicket
    Slave Leia
    TIE Fighter Pilot
    Mouse Droid

    The new Galactic Heroes line looks good also. Finally a real Landspeeder! And a new Jar Jar!

    Wow, some very cool stuff so far!

    I'm thrilled about Ponda Baba's extra hands. I've wanted the white Boba Fett for some time now, so that'll be awesome! I wonder what the Death Star box looks like? I see from other sites' notes that one of the Star Tours sets will have the Utai. Sweet!

    I can't wait for pictures!

    I was really excited to read this, until I saw a pic.... looks like he'll be dressed in bright orange instead of dark green. Oh well, better than not getting him at all I suppose.
    Big thanks to DarkJedi5, TheRealDubya, obi-dad, morpheus282, Tycho and Kidhuman for great deals/trades.

    OH! At first I was confused, thought Boba Fett mail-away would be recycling the McQuarrie figure we got from '07, but now I get it, it's the regular armor in white from the SW Chronicles book and the parade he was first seen in. I hope they include his funky poncho, it was big there, not like the little hanging one on most Fetts we get now.
