"As it's drawn up now, the 2011 Bespin Han would be all-new."
Hooray! I'm really looking forward to that one on the vintage cards and I must admit much joy in the fact that it won't just be another iteration of the VOTC sculpt.
That is great news. Honestly, I think a new Bespin Han Solo is my most anticipated figure at this ponit. I really liked the POTJ one, and in some ways it still holds up pretty well, but an all-new "ultimate" Bespin Han would be most welcome. The favorite "look" of my favorite character, I hope it doesn't disappoint.
I also hope that rumor pans out of the ROTS clone being the Utapau version. That is actually one version of the clonetrooper that I could use more of too, and it hasn't been all that available for the most part for awhile now.
As far as the Vintage Collection goes, I guess I'm still pretty excited. I can see why people are wanting more "brand new, never before seen" figures, and I'm all for those too - but like Jesse, I enjoy a good resculpt here and there as well. Heck, looking at a lot of the "Top 10" lists, particularly for the OT, it is starting to fill up with more resculpts all the time. Many (or most) of the figures released prior to the ROTS line are looking dated in some ways at this point, so I don't mind getting upgrades that make sense. I'm wondering if some of Hasbro's answers are indicating that if Vintage isn't the "smash hit" that they envisioned, we might be seeing even more of a focus shifted to CW only after the next couple of years. If they did the line right, they could really finish out much of what the majority wants from the movie lines in a couple years though. There will always be figures missing I'm sure, but we are starting to flesh out each of the movies pretty well at this point.
