I do hope they add to it as the weekend goes on. I know this is also a opportunity for them to get new customers, so you have to show things about to be in stock or coming this year. I'm all for clones and droids, but definitely want to see more figures of unique characters, you tease Windu on the 4th and you know your customers want to see him.

Regardless, it is neat to have a con and seeing these type of unofficial photos come out like the good ole days.

It's always a mistake to try and apply any sort of logic to Hot Toys releases.

They'll put stuff up for pre-order at the most random times when any hype has long gone.

I also read it as Pre Vizsla and got excited lmao

@Jaycepticon don’t get your hopes up :lol

I won't ever be satisfied until he gets his live-action respect. I don't care if it's a Bo-Katan flashback or whatever.

Hell, she can run into Paz in Season 3 and we get a quick glimpse of Pre's helmet or cape with the DW symbol flapping in the wind. I don't care:lol

The total lack of anything OT clearly demonstrates the disconnect HT and Lucasfilm have with the hardcore fans of the franchise. I don't know which is the biggest waste of time and resources, the laughably silly chrome variants, lazy remakes like Paz Vizla, or figures of awful Bad Batch characters.

The most interesting new thing by far are those 501st speeders and I'm not exactly scrambling to order a $600 one of those paired with a relatively obscure trooper.

REBEL BASE
Honestly I was really hoping for another 1/4 Vader i’m so bummed out.

I really don’t want to buy a used 1/4 because people have their dogs, cats and birds smoking next to their damn collectibles goddamn hoarders too with spiders everywhere!

The Sideshow 1/4 statue that comes out soon looks really good. Well except for the base.

I mean if we’re being real there’s not a ton of major characters to make from the Original Trilogy anymore. Han Solo figures apparently aren’t happening because of issues with Harrison Ford. Aside from him who really is left? C-3PO is the main one. Also Darth Vader from ROTJ. Maybe General Lando.

I’m glad people who enjoy the cartoons and PT are getting things they may like (although I’m not reading a lot of enthusiasm here) but I must agree there’s not much happening Day one I care anything about. I really thought with Kenobi releasing there’d be a heavy Obi-wan presence, old and new. There’s still time but not much hope 😉😆

I'll be very surprised if we don't get some kind of Obi-Wan reveal tomorrow for the new series, even if it's just a partial glimpse of him on FB.

Looking for the Love and Thunder
The only people thrilled right now are army builders. PT fans would like the actual characters they loved like Padme and Mace. An AOTC line without any of the main trio? I’d call you insane if they didn’t do that with ESB a couple of years ago.

And for the record, I (and many others I’d presume) would prefer many MANY other clone wars characters over the bad batch.

I have a strong feeling that we’ll still get one for the Kenobi show just because they have always made a 1/4 hot toys figure of all Star Wars shows that’s come out so far. Definitely not worth missing out on if you haven’t gotten the original. Dank Farrik I even got the original and I want a newer one even though it doesn’t need an update but the moment I see a 1/4 Hayden sculpt I’m getting it even though I have little to no space left 😂
