    JJ said he was never in the script, though.

    It almost makes it sound like he has to keep the secrets from the other Hasbro people as well. Like he was just staring at the guy making Zuvio trying to will him to drop it.

    Interesting that it lists Obi-Wan Kenobi. We already have Obi-Wan from ROTS so could this finally be Old Ben? That would be so awesome!

    Yeah, it's definitely ANH Obi-Wan. I think we should see the figure very soon, too.

    Nope. Its part of the code name system for Rogue One. Bad guys were sharks, good guys were seals, Forest was an eel.

    For instance, we knew that Jyns code name was Seal Leader Green, so that is who that figure is referring to. I used to think that Seal Communicator Blue was Bohdi Rook, but now I think it's Cassian just because that code name seems to pop up a lot.

    We don't know what the shark trooper is. IIRC there was some talk that it was just a regular trooper, but I've got to think it's the death trooper.

    I guess it's possible it could be TPM or AOTC Obi-Wan (which I'd also love) but I agree it's most likely Old Ben. It's one of the ones I've been most looking forward to so this would be great news! Now we just need a Qui-Gon and Padme!

    Oh and the Rogue One figures are exciting too! :p

    Not in the first wave. I think the second wave leaked somewhere too, and I don't remember him there. Remember these are the 6" black series.

    Krennic is 'Shark Leader', I believe.

    More ambiguously named characters:
    Tertiary Hero Droid
    Shark Leader
    Shark Trooper Yellow

    Shark Trooper Yellow sounds like it could be a Shore Trooper.

    And Tertiary Hero Droid sounds like K-2SO (unless he was already mentioned and I missed it).

    Ok, so that ends up the second wave (or maybe the first wave after the Force Friday wave?) and the third wave (or second) is this one:

    So. Many. Snowtroopers.

    I just hope they learned from the "Where's Rey" thing and put Jyn on the shelves. Your main character should not be a unicorn in the toy aisle. I also want to see Mon Mothma out there. Eventually. Doesn't have to be right away.

    I think they might put out more figures of the protagonist characters to avoid controversy but I hope we learn this lesson for all toy sales. They didnt put out less rey figures cause she was a girl but mainly cause Hasbro hates us and always puts out less of the characters we want to buy so we will chase them down and possibly buy more figures in the mean time when going to 5 stores to find one figure. Its the same thing they did with Maul in TPm and the vintage collection and with Phase 2 Rex and Fox in the TCW line. I get supply and demand but I am sick of having to chase down a Kylo ren and rey figure. Thank God I got my hand on a Vintage collection Mual back when those where impossible to find. Hasbro needs to learn to actually ship the figures we want cause every time I went to get a Poe figure for my Poe collection I didnt buy Zuvio or Finn and the other peg warmers like they wanted. hopefully that shows them that this tactic does not work these days.

    Off topic, on topic, but the convention exclusives were shown off in EW:
    [​IMG]
    http://www.ew.com/article/2016/07/01/star-wars-hasbro-kylo-ren-obi-wan-kenobi

    Aren't those two slated to show up in the Rogue One waves that have been leaked as well? I got out of the exclusive figure game a long time ago, but I seem to recall them being exclusive exclusive (though I guess I do remember getting a force ghost yoda that was an exclusive for something, but eventually showed up on pegs). Do you think that is going to be the same Obi Wan and Kylo Ren that we get in the R1 waves (just with less accessories) or are there going to be different ones?
