Who would you like to see? There's no Jawa, so the Scum report is fualty. I'd like to see all of Scum's report figures + Walrus Man & IG-88.

TIE Fighter Pilot


The OTC one was excellent, not in need of the VTSC treatment.

The sculpt is good, but it needs more articulation. :P

You're talking about the POTF2 one right? Cause the OTC one has near perfect articulation. Besides, he doesn't need to be super SA, all he needs to do is sit in a TIE Fighter. And the OTC one does that perfectly.

No I'm talking about the OTC one, he needs ball-jointed shoulders and neck at least.

...& ankles. Yeah, the Saga1 figure was OK. But, I like SA on figures.

At the very least, angle cut elbows. Don't get me wrong, I like the OTC one alot, but it can be improved slightly. Plus, I'd image they could make ANH varient with the hose out of the side of his chest box.

There were no Tie Pilots for ANH in the vintage line. Only ESB & ROTJ, strange though.

According to GH, there might be a hiccup in next year's 'vintage' line - IG-88 might replace the Jawas.

Explain to me how IG-88 will be any different than his POTJ release. 

Knowing Hasbro, they will repackage said figure and charge us $12.99.

Yep.  Just like they've done with all the other retro-vintage figures.

Well they've come close.  The 3PO was a horrible new mold and they did resell us the VTSC Biker Scout and VOTC stormtrooper as regular carded releases.

So yes, they technically have not re-released a regular release in the vintage line, but even though a figure is a new tool, doesn't necessarily mean it's better or worth the premium price.

- Die-Cast?
- ball jointed knees/shoulders?
- better waist joint

There are a bunch of possibilities as to how they could improve IG-88...
