I'm totally applying for that. The answer is simple - more toys to my stores!
Finally able to add some depth to the ranks of the 1st Order

This is a neat article about the search for the actor who portrayed Boshek. I recalled reading that no one knew for sure who he was, but it's neat that he was found. It's also pretty wild to realize that he was apparently still alive when his figure came out but no one knew about. With all the difficulties we've read about getting approval for actor likenesses, it seems surprising. I wonder if he was fair game since he was uncredited?

I'm baffled. We KNOW a much broader range of items exist from the Nuremberg Toy Fair. Why didn't we see more? Why isn't Hasbro pushing more stuff?
I'm guessing either items are timed to some sort of "exclusive reveal" from other venues, or Hasbro knows it really doesn't matter what they put out, Star Wars is hot enough retailers are still just going to buy anything.

What else haven't we seen from Nuremberg?
Reportedly, a new TIE Fighter (though, I was suspecting maybe a Mando fighter from description), bunch of Rogue One stuff, and new AT-AT with nerf darts and app integration
From Marvelous at Toyark:
Rogue One 6" Black Series were shown. Main heroine, main antagonist (looks like Admiral Thrawn, but without blue skin. Black droid (Assuming RO).
ANH Leia and TFA C-3PO.
3,75" Rogue One vehicles. Starfighter, a new kind of Tie fighter (flat wings shaped kinda like those of an Interceptor. AT-AT with mobile app enhanced control and firing Nerf darts (Smalelr than Vintage Collection). Many new 3,75" figures for TFA, OT,PT and RO.
Banner for Rogoue One with a big shot of Darth Vader.

Ah - oh that's right - they didn't allow pictures. Well, whatever the reason Hasbro said there'd be no Rogue One at Toyfair so I guess we can't be surprised. But yeah, it's strange that they'd show the toys over there and not here unless they just want to save it for Celebration X.

Sabine fared much better in the translation to the Black Series toyline than Kanan did. Revan came out really well, also.
So that's two more checked off my wish list with HK-47, "Resistance" Rey, and Lando to go.
Oh, and thanks for picking up another astromech for me, Confuzor!

Guess Kohls is still a viable stop.
I was there yesterday (they had a TON of, overpriced, Star Wars stuff), and found a lone Sabine/Stormtrooper set sitting in the back. I think that was $13.49 well spent. And I found wave 2 Blind bags, for what that is worth.

Is there anywhere that sells faction decals for modelling projects? In particular I'm trying to find ones for the Republic army like the faction symbol and the 'twin suns'.
You know, that's one property Toyhax hasn't tackled yet. The closest I can find is this site that has hi-res scans of original label sheets you can download and print on your own.

Something I'm working on crossing a tank-like Gundam kit with a Star Wars ones. The idea is an Imperial tank that was produced by tail between their legs CIS engineers at the end of the war to curry favour with the new regime. The result thus shows said heritage while taking obvious cues from the Republic's forces. This played into it being rejected by the Empire wanting to establish a new identity, including more firepower/rule by fear and TIE air raids (as seen in TFA) proving a better strategy than ground tanks.
