No complaining, just an easy pass.

Yeah, that head sculpt is fantastic. Too bad the body sculpt doesn't compliment it. At any rate, I'm kind of glad it's the Commtech body. It makes it easier for me to get only one.

I'll send away for my free one since I had planned to open all of my vTSC figures anyway... now I'll just hope that he comes in a while mailer box and not carded so that I need another one.   :-X

so you gotta spend at least $50 plus tax to get each VOTC figure to get the 5 coupons needed to get ONE GL in stormtrooper disguise?? :-\
IF the 5 figs were ones I really RILLY wanted then maybe but other than the SA looking x-wing pilot Luke and Tusken Raider, they just don't trip my trigger.

I'm assuming 2 things here:

That you just need to send in 5 proofs of purchase from the outer casings of the figures.  That means you could buy all Scout troopers if you wanted to.  I don't think they would individualize the stickers b/c that would just take more work (and cost) for them.  Seems reasonable to assume.

And that the Lucas Stormtrooper is carded on a Vintage style card.  That's why he's considered VOTC.  If not, I definitely won't purchase it anyway, b/c I like all my figures carded.

I said yesterday that it looked like the original pic was photoshopped due to the helmet... looks like I was right unfortunately... it comes with the buff Stormtrooper helmet -

Personally, I think this is one of the funniest things I've ever seen.  Hasbro tried to build this up like it was some big deal, and they fall flat on their face with a pathetic attempt at a figure (if you can even call it that).

I'd call it a piece of turd that came out of a llama's ass.

I still think the headsculpt is pretty good. The rest of the figure is meh, but it's meant as a display piece/novelty item anyway, so it doesn't bother me one bit. I'll still get one, since I'll be getting all of the VTSC.

Plus shipping and handling, I think.

Again, this is a figure that I just see no use for, nor do I have any interest for. This will sound crazy to some, but IMO if Hasbro really wanted to remember George, make  a figure of a character he actually played in the movie . . . . oh wait, that's right, its coming out in April . . . .
Or make a figure with Geore in a flannel shirt and jeans . . . and on his stand, put the name Great Flannel One.

It's a bonus - that's how I'm forced to look at it.  I'd be buying these VOTC figures anyway, so kudos to Hasbro for reviving the old mail-away offer thing and letting us all get in on the nostalgia that comes along with it. 

If it was Hermie Odle everyone would be furious - at least with a Lucas figure most people won't freak out if they don't get one.

I'll order as many as I'm able to with all the Scout Troopers I'm hoping to find and maybe I can trade the extras if there are any.

With the VOTC concept, it might have made sense to make that "director" version of lucas. I just hope these are prototype shots and that it ends up being more VOTC like.

What I find funny is that you can order a case of these figures from SWS.com but you still have to send in the proof of purchases to get you GL stormtrooper.

Let's see, didn't I just purchase a case from you guys? Why don't you just send me 2 GL's with my order and we'll call it a day?

It's an incentive for carded collectors to buy an extra set - nothing more, nothing less.

Being that it requires VOTC UPC's, one would think the stormtrooper would be of VOTC quality....

Are you going to have to send the UPC's or the Kenner logo on back of the cardback ???.  If only the UPC then you can still get away with keeping the fig carded since the UPC is on a seperate insert inside the case.  I put my VOTC in a regular figure case since I could not stand those cheap ass cases that were included so this would work out perfect for myself.
