In 2005 we met the Chopper Droid, and a few years later we met Chopper the Clone Trooper. Now meet Chopper the Astromech Droid, new for this year's upcoming animated Star Wars Rebels. Based on Ralph McQuarrie's concept R2-D2, the little guy will also be an action figure later this year. Click here for more - he's hidden in the gallery.
We had a glimpse at the packaging, but now we can see StarWars.com's preview of the Star Wars Rebels Inquisitor Action Figure. The early painted sample seems to have filled in the lines on his face with paint, so I assume the final may appear slightly different. The style is not quite movie and not quite animated, but it does include a lightsaber similar to the spinning one concocted by Hasbro for Generat Grievous a few years ago. It also has 5 points of articulation. Click here to see more!

No. But you can see a couple of ships, and a logo, after the jump. As a full version with sound gets posted, we'll update accordingly. UPDATE: Official version with sound now embedded.
A couple of interesting reports popped up this week on Star Wars: Rebels, the new TV show currently expected for a 2014 premiere and, most likely, a Celebration Europe tease. BleedingCool.com has a report in which they describe the show as being teen-heavy, which isn't entirely unexpected given that Luke was pretty young, and it's not like Biggs was all that much older. Supposedly the same is true with Episode VII, also reported by the site with a casting note confirmed by Lucasfilm.
