Pretty cool pic really.  I would not otherwise bother with these two figures other than to make that little scene.  Now I have an excuse to get the coins as well :)

Nope, easy pass on the SBD and the R2. Still want the Mace, Marine, Airborne and will probably get an Obi since he is my favorite. December means I return to the hunt.

Disagree . . . every year (non-movie) they say January and every year near the middle to end of December guess what shows up at retail . . . . at least in my area, the new wave. And yes, they do not hit hard, one or two cases per store, then in Jan. and Feb they begin to trickle out more. That is the key, one must know the area one lives in and when stuff hits.

Same here... though I might have to eat crow since Endor and Naboo waves are sporadically found.  :-\ I've found what I want, but there are other TCJD members that have yet to find them.

I'll probably only buy the Galactic Marine, Mace Windu, and the SBDs. All in multiples.
My whole expanse...I cannot see...

Well, let's just hope that the production version is the Hasbro photo then.

Unfortunately, we really have no way of knowing which picture is "newer" or the version we'll get.  Like Jayson said, plenty of times we've seen a good-looking sculpt/paint job on the hand-painted/promo figures only to have some kind of manufacturing glich or last minute swap screw it up...  :-\

i bet hasbro will release both the good and bad heads as another STUPID running change exclusively to screw with us.

Bitching about Hasbro is a learned skill. Not everyone can pull it off, and it should be left to professionals only.

Hasbro has moved on from the days of Cantina Han.  Now they have entered the decade of ROTS Vader.
You are never alone when there's a clone.
