Now that these characters are being named we can only feel that they will be the ones (if any) featured at February’s New York Toy Fair.  Either that or we could very well be seeing these as possible Sneak Preview wave of figures released sometime in the summer.  To see the rest of the images with captions which were presented in vintage Topps trading card style, head on over to To add further to our excitement for the release of Episode VII we want to thank Tomas Lundholm from Leia’s Library for turning us on his great new countdown clock.

Until next time,

May the Figures be with you!
