Check this out. It's a supposed presell of the 2006 VOTC. Tell me what you guys think.

Those are the 5 that are scheduled to be released, so I would have to say it's legit.  I wouldn't pay that much for them, but I'm sure someone will.

I would say it's legit, that guy is a power seller with tons of positive feedback.  But still there's no reason to pay $30 per figure, especially before you've checked your retail stores to see if you can pick them up at $9.99.
If you vote for me all of your wildest dreams will come true.  Thank you.

Well freaking awesome! I knew about which characters we were going to get via Rscum, but I just wanted to see if the cardbacks were legit. I guess they are. Awesome, just awesome.

My prayers have been answered, a SA Greedo AND Scout Trooper! I can't wait till March!

Those cardbacks are kickass! Too bad we can't get a closer look at them. I guess the rumor that they'd be using the old Power of the Force cards with the coin didn't pan out.

Another thing, between the high basic figure prices and the VOTC Tusken and Scout Trooper, I know I'll be broke throughout a majority of the year.

Did Canadian VOTC cards have English and French on the cardback?

I actually emailed them for bigger scans of the cardbacks. I am just waiting for a reply.

Only the Yoda card front on the upper right where it mention "Ages 4 & up", nothing on the backs.

From what I can see, the Cromalin in the eBay picture is in French on the front and backs of the cards and also where the character name is on the front.

Well those look to be bilogo/bilingual ::)  Frankly that sucks, unless that's a duplication of the original cardbacks, but I seriously doubt it is.  I don't mind buying a set up here to open, but for a carded set, I'm going to have to locate a US set >:(

Oh, ****.

I expect much hemming and hawing over the lack of Biker Scouts in everyone's armies, and I will do my part to add to this cacophony.

Count me in for messing up the Pittsburgh area. :)  Though finding Stormies wasn't exactly what I'd call "easy" for me.

In order of my preference:

Luke
Scout
Han
Tusken
Greedo

I guess with Greedo the POTJ one is ok with me unless the articulation AND other items make for a truly outstanding figure. Depends where I am with the collecting budget at the time.

Interesting that no one's mentioned this little tidbit from the auction description:

Quote
Collect all 5 Vintage figures and mail-in for an Exclusive George Lucas figure!

Is that listed on those cardbacks somewhere?  I don't see it, but they're pretty hard to read...  Rumor had it that the supposed "Treasure Hunt" figures would have the George Lucas offer on them.  Are these VOTC figures going to be "Treasure Hunt" figures?  Sure hope not...

As for the VOTC selection here, the Biker Scout, Tusken and Pilot Luke are certainly cool.  But there's many other figures that I'd have rather seen get the VOTC treatment than Greedo and Endor Han.  Hell, Greedo didn't even move in ANH, so he doesn't need anything more than some knee articulation, if you asked me.

I just hope that they get the Tusken correct, and make it the ANH version, without melding it together with the prequel version of the Tusken again (with the PT scarfs around the neck, instead of the OT breathing apparatus silver canister neck gear thing-a-ma-bob).  Get that right, and include both a Gaffi stick and a rifle, and I'll be a happy dude.
