    Found this via Tformers:

    http://jediinsider.com/index.php?catid=8&itemid=10037

    Not really much in the way of news about new toys, but new details on the following:

    -Death Star Vader is coming out in the Fall, with a MSRP of $50. He's over 12 inches tall. The cape can be stored in the back if you don't want it out. The mini-vehicles can attach to him in Death Star mode.

    -The Imperial Walker transforms into an AT-AT driver.

    -The Snowspeeder transforms into just a "pilot", not Luke Skywalker.

    -Over 12 new SWTFs will be coming out this year.

    The Snowspeeder turns into a Rebel Pilot, and yet it has a Lightsaber? :sly: 

    12 new SWTFs? I hope one of them is the Episode II Jedi Starfighter as Kit Fisto. I'd buy that in a heartbeat.

    Hopefully most of the 12 won't be repaints.

    I'm looking forward to new pics, especially the bot mode for the AT-AT. Though, I hope they do some Trade Federation vehicles as well down the line...I need my battle droid TF fix.:D

    Nice find. 12 (or more) new ones, eh? Well, we know Mace Windu (Episode 3), Saesee Tinn, Clone Gunship, that land cruiser, Snowspeeder, AT-AT and the Death Star are all coming up. Kit Fisto is heavily rumoured, too. That gives us eight already. I'm guessing the actual figure might be 13 new releases - four waves of three, plus the Death Star, although maybe another repaint wave of two might happen. Perhaps the Gunship will get repainted in the same wave as Kit Fisto?

    $50? That's not too bad. Over 12-inches tall too.

    Death Star and AT AT are must get. The new SWTFs have me thinking about picking up Palpatine the only non repaint SWTF I still don't have. Looks like the line will stick around for awhile.

    I know that I am probably in the minority on this, but I really want a Padme Star Wars figure. I really admire her character in the Star Wars films. Having said that, please give Mace Windu his own mold and not a repaint with a new head.

    I only ask that they add a super and regular imperial star destroyer to the line somewhere.

    HELL yeah.:D  A supreme sized Super Destroyer would be awesome, though it would most likely be ANOTHER Darth Vader.

    Now that you mention it, yeah, we need Star Destroyer TFs!

    Even if it IS Vader again.

    Nah. It could easily be Palpatine.

    No. From what I heard, the toy at Toyfair was broken so they left it in alt mode the entire time.

    True, but the Super Destroyer was Vader's ship. :(

    Wow, that's quite a bit of money I'll be saving by skipping these.

    Well, either that, or the listing's incorrect. Which could certainly be the case.
