As we prepare for Hasbro’s Star Wars panel, which begins today at 2 PM PST, we can’t help but pour over the images from Hasbro’s booth this year in anticipation. Hasbro once again impresses with the sheer amount of product and displays including a very impressive Sarlacc and Jabba’s Palace diorama.

Now our friends over at Rebelscum have inquired about that many of the “new” figures in the Jabba’s Palace dio, which include¬† 6″ versions of the Rancor, 8D8, EV-99, Gonk droid, and even a tortured 2-1B droid, and as of now it appears they are all customs for the display. But as fans recall the Trash Compactor Luke was also considered a custom in a previous Hasbro display until a year later he was announced as a new figure.

While there are not new figures on display (outside of the show’s exclusives) we do get to see the packaging for a few new pieces including Emperor Palpatine, which will be the second in The Black Series’ Deluxe line.

We were surprised to see that SDCC exclusives were available at 2 per person whereas the Celebration exclusives from earlier this year were limit 1 each.

In other news, LFL has on display the evolution of the Stormtrooper which gives fans a closer look at the new Sith Trooper which appears to have some elements of both Stormtrooper and Clone Trooper in its design.
