Initially this was the only tin set I was getting, to have a unique head Endor rebel and another VTSC Scout- and I can always use a Vader somewhere.  As for Leia, does anyone think this version is better than the carded plastic version?  I think I like the stance better but the soft goods are kind of thick.  But I may get the ANH now that the Sandtrooper is VOTC body.

I believe that the ROTJ Tin Leia is just a repaint of the Princess Leia Collection version...  if my memory serves me, it's not any better than the basic carded version.

And after seeing the ROTJ tin (with the Leia and Endor Trooper), I still stand firm in my belief that nothing pre-1999 should ever be repainted and re-released.   :P

I'm answering my own question with this, but check out this comparison shot of the 2 ewok dress Leias (POTF2 carded and POTF2 softgoods Leia collection).  Check out how much better the collection version (which the tin version is based on) is compared to the carded version.

I think I can pick up an opener set of the ANH and Jedi sets without feeling too ripped off now.  :P

Ok, if the pics are accurate...I can see me getting mulitple tins of the Ep IV and VI.

I will probably get one of the EpI tin, just for the red Astro Mech too.

It really sucks so many of us will buy the crap Hasbro has been feeding us just to get the one figure they carefull placed in there knowing we would buy it.
I am guilty of that too. This year I plan on avoiding what i really do not need like Marvel Vader. (I will buy the Han pack just for Han and repaint him.

This is why they keep on giving us re-hashes. Resist the dark side if you can, buy that which you really must have...............Viva La Revolution!

I wonder why you got banned? I really cannot think of any reason.

Some people take loyalty the wrong way to the maximum too.

Someone here said it best a while back; I collect Star Wars stuff not Hasbro stuff whoever makes the best product gets my money.  I second that.

You know, the tins invoke an antique like feeling, but the figures ruin it. I wounder what the reaction would have been if they came with vintage figures ala the '96 TRU 4-pack.
