I sincerely hope I am not the only one out there who is excited about Bo Shek appearing on the Wal-Mart SKU list. Why? Because the presence of Bo Shek portends the possibility of any character in the entire series. Out with the core character dependence of old, in with a new commitment to people the Star Wars toy universe with the minutia of the Star Wars movie universe!
And Teebo is there as well, putting us up to a still inadequate three Ewoks, but it does mark the return of the Ewoks to the toy store shelves. And yes, FINALLY, a new R5-D4! I'm not the only one to have repeatedly said this, but the presence of R5-D4 (hopefully) done right opens the door for many more droids! I say hopefully done right as we have no pictures yet and I am fearful that Hasbro, enamoured as they often are with gimics, will have a gaping hole in the head and black smudges all over the head and body to simulate the post-motivator explosion. I hope they do not make the same mistake with R5-D4 that they made with K-3PO (see my post in Dear Hasbro).
