Here it shows a new head (with comm headset) and possibly new lower arms as she's wearing gloves.

That Leia looks great.  I am looking forward to the Legacy figs more than any, but I super impressed with the comic packs due out this year.  :o

Yeah the Leia with the White Vader from ROTJ Infinities has a new head and possibly new arms, definitely new hands. We were talking about the Leia that comes the Marvel Comic pack as shown below...



Taking a look at it, I was wrong about the legs, there's nothing new about them. It appears Leia got a new head (or at least the paint job makes it look unique) and a holster, the rest is pure POTF2 Hoth Leia poop. :( Then again perhaps its just a mockup and Hasbro will surprise us. It would be in their best interest to make a new figure, because then they could just re-release it on a basic card as a Hoth Leia.

I was fooled on that too Jason, as some of the wash looks like a knee joint, but those arms are pure POTF2 for sure, and so's the rest.  Disappointing, but I wholely expect a new one at some point.

Ya never know, the figure may change, it was not even at the show. I cannot see them using that Leia sculpt, she is so tall and does not match the line. The figure is taller than the EVO Jango. Maybe it's a long shot but they may actually surprise us with a revised tool and that was for mock up only. The size difference in the package is off if that is the POTF2 sculpt. I compared the sculpts.

Let's hope..........

Just to confirm, Leia was not at the show because she was not considered "final".  The mock-up was shown for the attending toy buyer's benefit...

No idea how much (if any) she might change, but she was not "final" as of the show.

That's too bad - I think the version pictured is pretty sweet.  :-\

The sniper Leia, was at the show. That is the one I assume that you are excited for. Everyone seems to be mixing the two up. I believe the mock-up Jeff is refering to is the Hoth Leia Repaint:



NOT the Sniper Leia from a seperate Comic Pack:



Which hopefully means that there is indeed a chance that it ('it' being the Leia in the first comic pack pictured in this post) will be a complete resculpt rather than a POTF2 repaint.

I cracked open the Luke/Imp female officer pack yesterday. For those who have been wanting to know, The Luke hat seems to fit well on other un-hatted imperial officers. Not so much for the other hat which is too small.

We should send that hat off for casting.

I finally recieved my Comic Tarkin from an eBay win (before the strike). I've always though it looks like a Marvel Hydra officer, so that's why I wanted him. Just didn't want to get the comic pack because of the strangely painted Stormtrooper. I'm glad I waited as I was able to get the Tarkin for about $5 shipped.

If I could get more of this fig I would and use them as an EU world's security force/law enforcement. Just simple head swaps for new figs.
I'm just a humble collector trying to make his way through the universe...of toy aisles.

I was just looking at all the press photo,
has anyone noticed the white vader from the comic pack has a three piece helmet?  i wonder of this will be the same figure as the carded wave one release

I saw the wave with Luke/FemOfficer, Commando/SBD, and Mouse/Basso today. I got Mouse/Basso, I might pick up the Imp. Officer set in the future. Not too hot for the Ozzel body they used for Luke.

Has anyone ever seen the Mouse/Basso set where Basso DOESN'T have the should pauldron?

I saw that Rebelscum posted an update to their photo gallery on this set saying it's a variation, but once again (like with the Clean Black Pauldron Saga Legends Sandtrooper that has yet to surface) - we're dealing with a sample obtained from Hasbro for the original photoshoot and then the production piece has the pauldron.

When I received my set from an online site before they hit retail my Basso/Mouse set had the pauldron. I highly doubt this was released at retail without it.
I remember my dream now.
