Hope detailers and online shops will sell the figures separately, cause I donīt like to repeat them.

Looking for Farlander B wing pilot, Tie fighter pilot, Black Rebel Commando.

This evolution of the Rebel Soldier Deck Officer must anticipate a new depiction of the vests, a more detailed job on them as they include squares, badges, the collar of the cloth coiled. Indeed Luke from Hoth would need another depiction of his beige vest, but this indicate Hasbro has marked a new concept on their tendency for clothes depiction. The gloves and their bracelets are more marked, another layer in relief that rises over the shirt layer (at arms level)

Nice: the cannon concept for Hanīs taun taun which was the belly opened animal. An interesting variation on vintage style Hoth Han, hope the figure sits on the mount ok. The rider will need a system of articulation similar to the dewback sandtrooper from tvc.

Now we wait for a cool tvc evolution of Hoth Luke, the character deserves a taller figure, with ultimate detail on clothes sculpt and removable hat.

Thanks for the pick Leebo, Iī ll take a peek on that scene.

Hope to see more of the taun taun, perhaps the definitive version, not the prepainted
I to fond on medium ships, and I havenīt lost the hope of a bigger X Wing Fighter, with lights on the wings,
a sculpt decorated cockpit, taller to make the ladder of the toy "usable". With a Luke pilot of course, an update of the tlc snowspeeder one.

I am not sure, but 3 months before more or less, JTA showed an spoiler where Sim Aloo was scheduled, with a softgoods robe, the hat, pale skin, etc. That wave must be ready to appear on display.

Think this could be very much for Hasbro dudes, but if they are going to launch more Revenge of the Jedi figures, they can sell the tvc atst driver, from 2010 Attack on Hoth battlepack. This figure is the current evolution on at st drivers, and would be offered to collectors that canīt afford the whole pack yet.

The Vintage Collection '10-'13 / Re: Boba Fett Mail-Away Offer?
« on: July 2, 2011, 11:29 AM »
Acording to some reviews on video and webs like rebelscum
the tvc classic Boba is slighty different from the vintage, mostly on the disposition
of the jacket under the chest armor, the squares on the shoulders and size.

I look the photos of the very early Boba Fett from 1978 on theswca
the article said that this figure got vintage stormieīs arms but painted in Boba style. This figure depicts the firing misile too.

Something I think, this early Boba Fett is the slimmest Boba in the Kenner Hasbro line. I donīt know if this toy was distributed by the mail offer in 1978 or was immediately rčplaced by the current Boba we saw on the 1978
star wars cardback.

Hereīs my list for rotj figures

1. Luke Skywalker X wing pilot with the right black glove (another mold...not vtsc body)
2. Princess Leia Organa  Sandstorm deleted scene
3. Emperor Royal Guard, with removable helmet
4. Boba Fett from sail barge, with attack cable, removable helmet without skullcap
5. Rebel Commando (vintage) with green camo outfit
6. Fozec
7. Nien Nunb
8. Han Solo coming out of carbon block
9. Bib Fortuna (re sculpt)
10. Luke Jedi from Home One briefing room, with extra piece utility belt hanging hilt over sash.

On esb, there were more girls at the command center of Echo Base, besides Toryn Farr was a blonde chick.

Does anybody know the name of that feamale character?

or more please...

Does anyone could upload pics of the female operators in Echo base?

I think Hasbro will release Toryn in the near future, but the other rebel operators ladies would appear on some battlepacks, like the one with the Hoth sledge fans are waiting for.

Greeting, here is my list:

1. Luke Skywalker (Dagobah training with soft goods removable jacket)
2.Han Solo waiting for the carbonite fluid, with binders and carbonite block
3. Toryn Farr
4. Snowspeeder Wedge Antilles
5.Jeroen Webb, with removable hat and googles
6.Luke Skywalker (Hoth outfit with removable hat, SA)
7. Yoda the Jedi Master
8. Sergeant Merril Bespin wing guard
9.Lt. Sheckil
10. Bespin escape Leia Organa

I will pass all these sets.lack of interest in repeating those figures, the ones I donīt own yet would be bought on single card, preferably the original release.

The only thing I can tell is that the long rifle make profit of snowtrooper super articulation. Iīm not to fond on wide stance figures, but if Hasbro make a decent variation of this guy with that rifle.... could be the snowtrooper commander or the same mold but wearing boots instead of shoes like the original vintage....I will make the new acquisition.

Something I want is the launch of Hasbro ultra paint jobs for the figures, not only SA
cause peinting matches the sculpt. Frequently they forget to paint badges, belt buckles, boot soles
dots and stripes on stormies armors, glasses of helmets, etc.

Returning to wave 7

I like Han figure a lot, one accurate detail is the big poket on lower back of his jacket. This is the taller Bespin Han also, so this lets to build new Lukes a bit taller (the new Hoth Snow Speeder pilot, we are waiting for)

After seeing the pics from vakface on facebbok about Logray, we appreciate his primary evolution rests on articulation, cause is teh more posable medicine man from the 3 releases.

The paintjob is a very good update, giving special credit for the selection of colours.
But between potf2 and tvc Logray the bands on arms diminished from 4 to 3
the face of the character is predominently brown, seems they didnīt follow strictly the photo
no matter, is an interpretation

when size diminishes they dimish stripes on the body too. In contrast the weapons and pack are better sculpted than ever.

Saga Collection '06 / Re: TSC Recent Acquisitions
« on: June 15, 2011, 08:28 AM »
yesterday I bought the vtsc Han Solo in Trench coat (rotj) original release. I always try to buy the first version of a figure and avoid repacks, cause they omit some paint applications frequently on the reissue.

5 years after the launch of this figure, seems to be a durable interpretation of the character.

This black rebel commando got the necessary changes to a decent tvc variation
-comes with a beige trench coat, instead of the green from the bald white guy.
-His head looks different from the saga 2006 short black guy
Only hope sculptors have corrected the posture of the tvc white guy, which looks kinda hunchback without his coat and backpack. I understand this posture is motivated to attach these accesories, but must ne improved if Hasbro pretends to reissue this mold.

This evening I picked up the TVC Twin pod Cloud Car Pilot, at E.Wong in Lima, Perú
The figure costed 35 soles or 12.6 US $ in exchange.

This is part of a clearance sale, cause this esb wave marked 69.70 soles last Christmas.
