I'm bothered by the use of the ROTS body for Tarkin too, Speedermike, but given that Imperial Officers are my favorite figures and that there are 5 other ones in the pack beside Tarkin, I can forgive Hasbro for it.

I'm really into this set, and plan to pick up as many as possible.

Tarkin sucks, as expected, but the others MORE than make up for it. I'm sure we'll get a better ANH Tarkin as a basic carded figure anyway. Wow... I'm digging the new officers! Great stuff.

I'm gonna try and afford this set, I'm really digging it... Tarkin is a bummer, but the POTF2 version will be fine, for me, while this crappy ROTS Tarkin can just be a filler Officer in the background of my Death Star playset.

A table would be cool, but that's probably out of the question.

Tarkin's face isn't very good (almost looks like the e3 version, is it?) but this is one of the few things Hasbro's shown so far that interests me.


It appears to be the ROTS Tarkin face repainted. He isn't all that excitable compared to the rest, but the rest sure do make me want to buy it. Even though I have the Vader and Motti and made my own Yularen, I am so looking forward to picking up this set. Now only if actually came with the table, even a cardboard one would do....

I'm hoping that Tarkin is just a Hardcopy and the final version will have a better painted and slightly retooled head.  The paint on all of them looks a little thick

Is that supposed to be Chief Bast with the sideburns or not?  Anyway it's a cool set except for the Tarkin of course.

Is it me, or did Hasbro finally get Vader's height correct here?

This set is awesome.  One of the best things (if not THE best) revealed at Comic Con.

Can't wait!!!

Why do they all have DC-15s?

Why does no one care that Tarkin's ROTS outfit is different than his ANH outfit?

I've already bitched about it several times in this thread, actually.

Two Old Man Tarkins in one year, ten whole years since the last one, and they're both simple repaints of the inaccurate Episode III version.  Guess Mr. Foul Stench will have to stay near the top of my Episode IV want list for another ten years. 

Funnnnnn. . .

I'm actually glad no table or chairs are included. Look at the legs, how would they sit at it?

Also, how are we going to have to order this thing? Isn't it at some certain website? I never ordered the Diamonds Sandcrawler, and I forget where people got it from.

Why do they all have any guns at all? 

It's not like they used any in the movie, so who gives a **** if they're the "correct model number" or not?

Jeeeeezus.

Tarkin seems an easy fix, buy an extra Jerjerrod and swap heads, yeah the head is still a little off, but at least his clothes, but I'm not sure of the rank badge.
