Another new carded image, this time its the rerelease of Leia from ANH



I'm getting it only because I preordered the case.  I love these new cards more and more though

Thanks to mimidog4428 for the image!

Looks like this one might not be legit.  The blaster is missing the forward grip.  Compare it with this one...



This one has the forward grip.  Weird.

we noticed that yesterday at RS, this must be a mock up...the two grip gun is what she originally came with...

I'd seen the pic several times, but today was the first time I noticed that.  I also recalled the original coming with the two grip blaster.

This is Leia's sporting blaster. It only has one grip. The position of her left hand in the second picture gives the impression of a second grip, though none is visible.

Sorry folks. No variation here.

Back on topic, I'm glad to see Hasbro offering what I consider to be definitive sculpts of these characters. Changing the accessories might seem like dirty pool at first, but it's definitely an improvement over pricier CommTech chips and impossible-to-find 2-packs. I'd sooner see quality figures reissued than arbitrarily resculpted.

And you can't have too many Darth Maul figures. In Episode III, Mace Windu unveils his legion of Sith apprentices (apprenticii?) to defeat the Jedi left standing from the Clone Wars once and for all. Buy 'em up while you can.  8)

We were talking about the Imperial blaster that's in the upper right hand corner of the bubble, MisterPL.  Sorry to cause any confusion.

Well, the glare on the lower image really does obscure a fair ammount of the bubble.

I absolutely adore the new cards.  These are my all time favorites from the modern line.  The card back is even better.  As for the re-releases:

Maul: Great choice.  I have him, but many don't.

Leia: I would have picked the Hooded version.

Han: If what they're going for is the best representation of a core character in his/her core outfit, this is it.  I got mine for $2, as I'm sure plenty of others did.
