So what is with the vintage style reissue of Bossk and IG-88?

I'm not impressed with that new troop transport. There is no cockpit and it looks small and narrow. No electronics. I think it looks silly and undersized. I like the new walker.

I love the shadow stuff. I'm in for a few of these.

Me too! 

I know it's not everyone's cup of tea but if they have to do mix in repaints I am happy enough they went with these.

I still wonder if C-3PO will end up being the jedi-Con exclusive and maybe they stick the Emperor in this slot instead? It seems crazy to release a main character as an exclusive, but they could always go the Boba Fett route I guess and throw in some extra swag before the inevitable mainline release.

Some general thoughts on the Black Series 3.75"

Yavin Leia looks pretty good.  I appreciate the update to a figure that hasn't been done in some 15+ years, and that's about all I have to say there.  I would've preferred another version of Leia if given the choice.

The mystery of Hoth Han in the 3.75" line?  I'm thinking that might have been a case of mistaken identity.  Someone probably saw that on a list and assumed that the 6" figure was actually a 3.75" figure.

Chewbacca?  I've said my piece, but I think it bears repeating.  Chewie is a tough character.  Simply because he really doesn't have any costume changes.  A detention block breakout version would have been more interesting than this one.

The Clone Commanders are pretty cool.  Rex looks adequately battle-worn.  And the hash marks to denote his droid kills are a nice touch.  Commander Wolffe is probably the star here, because his helmet and look are the most unique of the bunch.  I hope that helmet is removable!  As for Commander Doom?  It took a while for me to recognize that this Clone Commander was from the lost episodes.  When I saw him there I didn't make the connection.  But seeing the figure?  Clearly, whoever designed this particular Clone is a HUGE Marvel/Doctor Doom fan.  I mean, this is just an over the top homage to everyone's favorite despot from Latveria!  After that?  I guess we're left wondering what became of Commander Thorne, who either didn't make the cut or may have been put out there in an effort to discover any leaks.

Dagobah spirit Darth Vader is a nice update.  The POTJ figure was pretty awesome in it's day.  But that figure came out about 13 or 14 years ago, and I think the aesthetics have passed that one by.  The one question I have after seeing this one in the Hasbro display case?  Does the head come off?

Gold Leader / Dutch Vander seems like a case of going back to re-do the notable Rebel Pilots from the Battle of Yavin.  The original version of Gold Leader wound up towering over many an X-Wing and Y-Wing pilot.  I guess now I can customize the old version into a Rosey LaRose figure!!!

About the 3.75 new Black Series:

-Leia Yavin offers the slimmest sculpt and best face sculpture, the rubor on her cheeks depicts here as a cute young lady.

Wish Hasbro won´t altere so much the paint job for this figure till they get her into shelves.

-The clones Rex and Doom are nice too, wish they have removable helmets and paintes soles on shoes.

-Ducth Vander updates face and helmet but omit some details on left arm: the patch over glove and cilindres are plain orange scult; while Hoth Wedge looks with updated painted gloves for an reussed body.

- Dagobah Vader, the  Luke head is more appropriated for a toy cause is on a neutral expression, in contrast to the potj version wich spotted a rictus of death.

Bossk definitely looks pretty cool.  The articulated jaw is a very nice feature.  And I think bounty hunters are great source material for the demographic Hasbro wants to appeal to with the Black Series 6" figure line.

C-3PO is a natural fit for the line since we've already gotten R2-D2.  As characters go Threepio is a mainstay.  But will we see history repeat itself with Threepio warming the pegs like Greedo?

Stormtrooper Han Solo just comes across a little odd to me.  In fact, it seems like the line seems to be going pretty heavy on Han right from the get-go.  Already we've seen 5 offerings of Han:
-ANH Han Solo
-ANH Han Solo with Greedo in the Cantina showdown exclusive 2-pack
-Han Solo in Stormtrooper disguise
-Hoth Han Solo with the tauntaun
-Han Solo in Carbonite (SDCC 2013 exclusive)

Wow.  They're going to the Shadow scheme already?  It makes me think that they're tooling budget might be really stretched thin.  This set LOOKS cool, but the cynic in me sees this for what it is:  a repaint set that's being pitched as a cool army building exclusive.
