Derryl DePriest and Brian Wilk came out to for the popular "What's new with Hasbro?" panel yesterday, where they outlined the company's plans for the remainder of 2007, which was similar to the Celebration IV presentation, but geared towards the UK market's prices and availability.

Highlights include the Galactic Heroes line, Unleashed Battle Packs, Transformers, and the 3-3/4" action figures (btw, you're welcome guys!). You'll notice that not every item actually comes over to the UK, so some descriptions are a little wrong in the presentation. Towards the end of the panel, several new exclusives were announced:

There will be 3 new collector's tins that will include 4 figure repacks in the collectors tins. These will be Toys "R" Us UK exclusives:
  • Episode II: Mace Windu, Sora Bulq, Oppo Rancisis, and Zam Wesell.
  • Episode III: Commander Cody, Anakin Skywalker, General Grievous, and Shadow Clone Pilot.
  • Episode IV: Darth Vader, R5-J2, Biker Scout, and Death Star Gunner

    In addition, there will be several other Toys "R" Us UK exclusive toys out in the fall, in brand-new TAC packaging:

  • Large wing TIE Fighter (October)
  • Imperial Shuttle (September)
  • Ultimate Lightsaber (October)

    A short Q&A took place at the very end, where fans pointed out the backwards middle foot found on the R4-G9 sculpt, asked after the possibility of the Yuuzhan Vong, and Matt from Action-Figure.com pointed out that the AT-TE was in the new trailer...so we'd REALLY like to see it come out in action figure scale!
