The 3.75" figures look reasonably good.  They're all 5 POA, which is disappointing.  But the likenesses are pretty good. 

The Falcon?  I kind of like the fact that it looks different.  It ties in with some of the dialogue from the OT, like when Han said "I've made some special modifications myself", or when Lando said in TESB "What have you done to my ship?".  I also suspect that at some point in the movie, some of those special modifications are going to start happening.  As for the toy itself?  The $99 price point is a lot easier to accept.  I think Hasbro has recognized some of the psychological/financial barriers that have kept people from buying $100+ and $200+ vehicles.

The 6" TBS figures look pretty good.  But I definitely get the reactions to the Imperial Range Trooper.  It definitely looks like a bit of a departure from previous troopers.  But I also see hints of equipment and gear from the prequels, ROGUE ONE and the OT.  I'm also curious to see these guys in action, because I think those boots might integrate with some kind of vehicle.

I'm digging the new Han Solo and Lando 6" figures. 

I don't like the new Stormtrooper design - it doesn't seem to fit in with prior incarnations of the Stormtrooper (I thought Rogue One did a great job with their new Stormtrooper designs). 

I don't really like the jacket on Qi'Ra, but otherwise her design is fine. 

I stopped collecting 3 3/4" figures so I don't really care about these new ones.

It's as big as a house on walking legs,
and whatever it steps on it crushes like eggs.

There have been a significant number of reveals today for both the 3.75" figure system and the 6" figure lines for SOLO - A STAR WARS STORY.  What do you think so far?
