    That would be a colossal waste of everyone's time. We all just bought these figures via Walmart.
    Or are you saying they'll put currently unreleased TFA & RO characters on VC cardbacks ?
    That would be equally mind-numbing since the unreleased figures are at this point are now Tier 2/Tier 3 level of importance.
    What sense is there to release those lower Tier figures on VC cardbacks ahead of the Primary characters ?

    Oh well, I guess we'll see

    Yeah, the main focus of the releases are going to be TLJ and Han Solo in 2018? Then also because of their newness we are going to see a few R1 and TFA figures too. That doesnt leave much room for OT stuff, so I would imagine there will just be a handful. In the mid to late Naughties, there wasnt anything other than OT figures, so they had to do a lot of obscure backgrounders and minor costume variations of main characters. They dont need to do that this time around. There are tons of main and secondary characters to do from new and current films, and they are safer bets in terms of sales.

    Why dont you think they would do TFA and R1 stuff? And why would they be mind-numbing?
    Most wanted figures: Vedain, Luke Bespin (Beatup version), Fozec, Taym Dren Garen, Sim Aloo

    If Hasbro just repacks what we've seen over the last two years in the Walmart line, then this line will be dead on arrival. I'm going to give Hasbro the benefit of the dount and say they'll release all of the TFA and RO figures as repacks in the line, but they'll spread them out over 2018. I think we'öö see some real gems in the first wave. Of course, TLJ and HS figures will be welcome because they'll be new.
    #1 want: Admiral Piett (3.75" SA/TBS line)

    I'd like to exercise my right to free speech, but I really don't have anything to say at the moment.

    I can see Hasbro repacking the Walmart RO figures as well as TFA figures on Vintage cards throughout 2018. as far as new figures go... I'd imagine we will see TLJ take a few slots, as well as HS movie, the rest will be a toss up between OT and PT
    Longing for the Good Old Kenner Days where SW Figures were in great supply and everyone was able to find their favorite characters etc..... Hasbro you need to follow this example ! Twitter: @SWChamp

    That sounds about right to me.

    I bet you aren't that far off with that guess. But I would say the split between OT/PT isn't going to be close to even though.

    if we do get both OT/PT characters I think it will be the core characters as always with very little background characters or new characters.
