Anything look familiar to you guys? ;)


Of all the stuff in that picture - the landing lamps, the ladders, the figure, etc - the thing they choose to finally release is the little box.   ::)

Sure would be nice if those ladders made it out in some form eventually.

Yeah the ladder on the right looks perfect for the A-Wing...  :(

Funny that this is a piece from this figure though...  Now I sorta want that Vader figure simply because I haven't picked it up (didn't open my 500th either) and now he has a nifty new box!  Ooooooo

I agree - I had totally forgotten about that old accessory pack that was never released... I wish they'd make that now, with a new rebel technician... come on Hasbro... you can do it!

I was looking over the TSC Han Solo page at RS, and do you know how many times this figure has been released in one form or another?

"9 times..."

Well they at least changed it up this time, a new head and better paint job is better than having the same thing again.

I actually thought it was more than 9 times.  I did like that picture they had though.  Even if it was from the dreaded RS  :P

I'm sure it's been covered already, but could someone who knows post one more time which mold this vader is based on?  And other than the accessories, is there anything new about it?

I believe it is based on the 500th Vader only difference is the silver shoulder armor damage and the helmet is glued on. It is exactly the same as the #013 Hoth Vader again with the helmet dome glued on.

Oh, one more thing with the previous 2 releases you could take the cape off, but again since the dome is glue on, the elastic band won't fit over/around it so it's not really removable any longer.

I actually just ordered this wave from EE... I already have them all, but love each and every figure in this wave (except Han, which I don't have yet).  So a case of them will be ok, I can use many for customs.

I saw a Han yesterday at Wal-Mart, but the box was trashed and the Holographic figure was stolen. Anyone else encountered something similar to this?

Have to agree on the case from EE!  Love this wave! Only compliant so far is the whiteness of the Sandtrooper's foot when compared to his entire body. It looks like Cinderalla's slipper so white and shinning after walking in the sand . . . .
Other than that, great wave!
