I’d take one of these before those awful prototype Vader’s any day.
@CHEWIE you made posted this comment month ago, before the line came out. Have you heard any new rumors about the new line that you can share?more excited about this mine than anything else now.At least one never before made old school character will be in this line but may be a pack in.... and heavy emphasis on the movie that started it all....
I don't know how I feel about that. To me, slots are precious these days and I'd like to see as many of the original line re-done as well as as many unmade characters as we can get. Like to the proto vader, I feel like we don't have a lot of time and the slot it filled could've been filled with a figure from the line. For Retro, I'm over gimmicks. I want the original line figures and unmade charcters from OT first and foremost.Just had this thought hit me....we've been speculating on what fig could be included w/ the hoth game. A snowspeeder pilot or Rieekan were most common guesses. But what if Hasbro wanted to resurrect the brown vs blue coat debate? Hoth Han is rumored for mass release so release classic kenner blue individually but release brown in the game? I guess to be truly kenner style, ie not screen accurate, they could do brown coat but resuplt new head and call it Rieekan, like what I did w/ an extra hoth Han almost 40 years ago. Then when potf2 released that hoth Han, I did buy 1 to open and put into in my vintage display as a Rieekan stand in. So that's 2x a brown coat hoth Han stood in for Rieekan in my collection.
I just want to see the line fill up faster and with more unmade figures. I personally, at this point prefer to see this line grow rather than all the repacks in the VC line.^ me too. Just saying "what if..." Given licence extension is still questionable, Hasbro may pump out EZ kitbashes rather than start from scratch.or in this case, 3D scans of existing figs. And a brown coat Han/Rieekan would fall into that category. Snowspeeder pilot could as well, as I posted b4, luke x-wing head & body w/ hoth Han, luke, rebel soldier or commander leg and arms( commander may be better as not as bulky and generally not posed like luke's)
Maybe it could be true except its hard to believe they would do Bossk over the Snowtrooper, especially since they are talking about the battle of Hoth. Its an army builder and Hasbro releases a army builder in almost every wave now. I just hope there are two waves this year.If 2 r included then from that list R2 and Han r best bet. Brown coat variant, if they chose to be so daring, may be the incentive for me personally to get it.
I wonder if they would skip certain figures and concentrate on main characters and real fan favorites. All I know is that I want to see many more unmade figures.Interesting rumors. I guess it means the other 6 from the original 12 are not necessarily on tap for the next wave. I can understand them skipping to TESB stuff for the anniversary, though.
They only messed up naming him technically. He is the droid on the sandcrawler not the death star droid. They probably had a black and white still and said oh there he is again...If they could I would like to see an all black version of the Deathstar droid. Back in the day Kenner messed up and probably should have called the droid the Sandcrawler droid. I think some of the other droids would be difficult to put on a blister card like the mining droid and the tread well to name a few.
Still can’t believe they aren’t doing a Snowtrooper. Many of us saw the figures and even penned the figures before we saw ESB for the first time and were very thrilled to see “the new” stormtrooper.There is a thread over at YakFaceForums that mentions the following figures are rumored for Wave 2:
Han Solo (Hoth)
Luke Skywalker (Bespin)
R2-D2 w/sensor scope
C-3PO w/ removable limbs
Also says two of these figures will be pack-ins with a Hoth game.
Always seems to be that because that's the one you don't want to come with it means that *is* the one that'll probably come with it.That list is intriguing, I do have all of the originals except for the R2 with sensor scope, which would be the one that I would get from the set. Hopefully R2 isn’t one of the ones that comes with the board game...
For the Comic Con exclusive, I just hope there are no more prototype figures. Please get up some unmade figures or figures from the collection. No gimmicks. Please!!Haha, you're probably right; the report says the game may come with 2 figures, which unfortunately makes sense for them to be R2 and 3PO. Unless it sticks with the Hoth theme (like the DS game did) and it would be Han and R2 (when R2 searches for the heroes with his sensor scope from Echo Base's entrance). Either way...
I don't know. Probably better to go with something like the proto Vader, because anything else will be just too damn hard to get. And if it's a new sculpt? I think I'd be pissed if is was exclusive to a con. With Hasbro Pulse having sell outs in seconds, the outcry would be thunderous.For the Comic Con exclusive, I just hope there are no more prototype figures.

I was a little miffed when I missed the 40th black series carded Fett when it was for sale in its 16 second window then got lambasted by the uber woke super collectors on the Yakface forums for the audacity of even wanting to get him. I decided the 40th carded series is off the table because of the BS Hasbro pulled. Like many others who didn't get one only to see tons of them listed for 3x the price on ebay. If they pull this crap again I'll easily be done giving Hasbro money. Dont want to sound like a snively B but cmon... make enough product to go around. If you want to make it a con exclusive, KEEP it a con exclusive so you have to attend to get one.how about no feeding the scalpers, leave the retros out of exclusivity....unless we want the Fett debacle or the Prototype vader thing all over again? I hate exclusives period. alternate cards like maul and Obi wan are ok, but come on.
