I saw a TFU set poster today that was apparently found in a dumpster behind Walmart. I was pretty disappointed by how heavy it was in Imperials and Rebels coming on the heels of A&E, and the fact 4 factions were omitted was unfortunate, but there were some interesting looking pieces.

Wow, well I'm going to have to go off of memory for now. I'll see if I can get a pic of some sort tomorrow.

There are two Vader apprentice minis; one "unleashed" that's Imperial. The other is "redeemed" that's Rebel.

Three Lukes: Snow speeder, w/Yoda on back, and an "unleashed" version in a pilot suit with a Lightsaber pulled.

There are 2 Hans: One in Hoth gear (seems odd with the Tauntaun just released) and a "Han Solo in Carbonite" :? a VR no less.
I can only imagine what this mini does. I'm reluctant to post it since it seems so preposterous it likely diminishes my credibility.

There was a Hoth Chewie, and a non-unique rebel on a tauntaun.

There were two Republic jedi, one being Shak-ti, JM. The other was a name I was unfamiliar with.

Garm-bel Iblis was the New Republic mini.

Huges : there was a Rebel transport like the ones from Empire that were buzzing around the Hoth base. I assume it has some sort of carrying ability. The Golan turret we've all heard about was there. There was a Rancor with a warrior of some sort riding it. There was some sort of junk golem iirc.

There were 3 ugnaught related figures (that seemed odd), a "Darth Vader unleashed", an "Obi-wan Kenobi unleashed", and a "Wedge, Red 2".

I think that's all I can come up with at the moment. I'll try to get that pic tomorrow. /salute

Thanks for the info. I look forward to more info. I can already hear people being upset over the reprints.

Awesome job, Mabel! I'm always looking forward to leaks. :D :D :D

I have a question though:
Is the secret Apprentice named "Secret Apprentice", or do they give him his real name?

On the WotC forum you said that there was no Mandos, Old Republic, Seps, or Vong on the poster you saw.

You gave us the NR mini, who the sith mini is/are ?

If there are only two republic jedi, I assume that Kota and Maris Brood are fringe or rebel.

Is there a new Leia, Lando, Obi wan ?

Do yhe empire get huges ? A new at st was expected can you confirm it ?

Thanks for sharing.

Garm Bel-Iblis was essentially the general to counter Thrawn in the Thrawn Trilogy. Also one of the founding members of the Alliance.

Revan is the lone Sith.

There is a new "wookie hunter" AT ST.

There is a new Leia.

There is a new Obi, see my earlier post.

Wow. What a good find. If you can scan it, that would be the best thing ever. That would make up for WOTC's annoying preview delays.

So do the "Unleashed" figures follow the Bossk, BH model? They are just a scaled down version of the large models of the same name - it sounds like it to me.

Well, it looks like Billiv was right about the set composition. Some very interesting things about the story as well. Oh, well, I will still look forward to the game. Though disapointing about no OR (though I get the feeling Revan will have Affinity) or Vong.

As for the other republic jedi on the poster, check the FU offical webside. There is a republic jedi general, and that be the guy you're thinking about. And PLEASE do get a scan or somthing of the poster. That would be SO AWESOME!

Holy crap, that's amazing. Behind a Wal-mart? That's the weird part. Unless of course they've received their shipments already, and opened the large boxes and tossed all the innards, including a poster. In the past, the posters have never seemed to arrive at the game stores until a week or so before the launch date, if even that early.

Very cool, and GET SCANS! :D

I didn't even know big chain stores like Wal-Mart and Target even got the stuff like posters. I'd always assumed they just got a quantity of sealed cases.

I don't know, I think my store got posters with their shipment of minis that they ordered before the new stuff came in. So it is quite possible they are building hype. I will do a quite search to see when other posters came out.

I forget when A&E came out, but the poster threads started popping up around May 20th. Rather close to release.

Hopefully the poster gets on the site one way or another.

A few others I remembered...

Rebels: Master Kota, Juno Eclipse, 2-1B, K-3PO, a rebel version of some E-web blaster looking thing. There we some other scrubs but I didn't zero in on the commons and uncommons.

There was an Admiral Ozzel for the Imps. There was a new fig that looked somewhat similar to the Royal Guards.

And Maris Brood (I think her name is, I'm tired) was fringe, in response to an earlier question.

Think the "Mynock" will be savage? :o

K-3PO, now there is a SWCCG reference that brings me back. Ozzel will be interesting. Sad too see Kota and Eclipse as Rebels. We will see how that works.

And, did the Royal Guard look a bit like this...

You found it where?

What were you doing in the Wal-Mart dumpster? Dare I ask.
