The TSC version sports the removable chest armor and the swivel (not jointed) elbows. And as I noted in another thread, there was a Black Series version that apparently never got released. I distinctly recall getting the TSC version for $5 at a Walmart during an out of town business trip.I hope it's not a repack of the 2006 TSC version ... but yes, I'd like one on a Vintage card.
I'll let it slide I suppose, but my POV it's more like an unwarranted "correction". And it's not like 'we didn't see those things before' situations like the remastered TOS USS Enterprise hull panels, right?I think its OK, RO did modernize the older designs from the OT even on their blasters changes were made like adding flashlights.
I agree. I love the leather texture. I'm anxious to see how this one looks once the joints are tightened up and they show a production sample.They're getting the Vader-like leather outfits correct on these soldiers. Some of the Imperial techs in SOLO also sported DS Gunner-like same ribbed leather outfits.
I think that one would still have sported just the radiation vest (like the Saga one) instead of a removable 'soft' vest which I still prefer to have in my collection. From what I've seen, Hasbro needs to get the upcoming one looking right accessory-wise. Also, as noted in other posts, I'm content to wait for Hasbro to get the uniform more spot, particularly the arm-length stitches. All things being equal I'd rather just have the gunner from the unproduced 2012 Echo Base set, which appears to be the SAGA version modified for SA.
