I was more surprised to see an X-Wing-like fighter. Does this mean we'll see space combat? Why else fly a fighter? It's not quite an X-Wing, though.
And all the pictures from the Tatooine set were nice to watch, surprisingly few aliens, but that big monster thingy is nice, and feels very Star Warsy.
The use of old discarded Ralph McQuarrie designs (from his concept art) is PROMISING, of course. I have a suspicion we'll have the characters come to Tatooine in search of something or someone (Luke Skywalker? The remains of the Lars family so they can finally get a proper burial?), it seems like the only plausible way to include that same old tired dust ball yet again.
Exciting times, indeed.
