Just curious, but why are we calling these things VTSC?  It's still VOTC to me - they're still only doing OT figures, so why call it Saga collection?

Because the packaging now says "The Saga Collection" instead of "Original Trilogy Collection".  Just a way to differentiate these from the last batch I guess...

But feel free to call them what ever you want.   :-*

I didn't realize they were that specific on the names of these things.

Highly disappointing.

Han Solo - Hoth
I want a Hoth Han (third attempt) first and foremost. I don't think I'd be very excited about a soft goods parka-- but just the hood, so that it can be worn up or down, would be perfect. Add a removable hat underneath and I'd be sold. He'd need articulated hips like VOTC Luke or the #38 Clone to ride a Taun Taun.

Snowtrooper
A Snowtrooper is definitely needed as well. I can't stand the kitbash that is lurking around the pegs right now.

Those are my top picks/wants. I'd also be up for a Death Star Trooper, Endor Luke, Endor Leia, a Bespin Guard, and an Emperor that's on-par with (but with a better hood) the Evo Palpatine.

Because I'm holding out hope that they'll make all 103 or 105 or whatever number it was of the original vintage line into this new format - and I'm hoping that they'll keep it focused, specific and very consistent.

You know there were rumors that all the vintage figs would be done over time.  Possibly in the VOTC fashion ???  But unfortuneately if Hasbro continues the way they release them it will never happen.  My point on this is that they need to release at least one boring (pegwarmer) character (like Rancor Keeper) in each series.  If they continue to make all the main characters in the first few series, then what? The remaining obscure figs will be last? It would never happen.  Im one of the few who is all for one boring character in each one of these waves to keep things milked a bit longer.

I liked some of the VOTC, and will get the new ones to get my georgetrooper, but at 12.00 each, I don't want to see the whole line (vintage or modern) done this way.
With the quality of the artwork we have seen on the OTC and Saga cards, wow, they are beautiful to display- I don't need vintage cardboard at a rate of $7.00 extra dollars per figure.  I would rather see comtech Leia done on a Saga card than a VTSC, same with the remaining bounty hunters. To me, the appeal of the original VOTC was enhanced because cardbacks up to that point had been so lame- generic blue background, generic green background, generic Maul background. Now that we are getting scene specific artwork on each figure, the clamshell and ornate packaging look less exciting.

Very well said, I think that sums up how I feel about these.  I love the figures and the packaging is great, but I don't need to pay double for something I'm going to want to open anyway.
