They're about 18 hours ahead of us, so it's less than that.
My Yakface arrived in the mail today, so since that series is now wrapped up and because I'm looking at Yak right now, I'll speculate:
Will we see more modern versions of figures creeping into the lines?
I hope not and admit I wish the Yak was a copy of the vintage line instead of the modern release. It would certainly allow Medicom to extend the life of the OT figures in the line with more variation than appeared in the original vintage lineup. And it's not like it hasn't happened before, the Vader had the Dagobah version down pretty well.
Will there be more PT figures?
I know some guys are anxious for them, but I really, really hope not. That blue Royal Guard scares the crap out of me. Sure, it's nice, but let's be realistic here, the PTs while completing the front end of the movies have a huge component in place that's pretty much nothing more than marketing. Why did the stormtroopers only come in white when there was such a veritable rainbow of colors some 15-20 years before. Yeah, I know, Lucas-ian revisionist history is going to have the 2010 release of the OT have all the stormtroopers in different colors, but it doesn't mean I support it. I'm ok with EU to a small degree, but not revisionist history
And speaking of EU, anyone think we might start seeing so EU based lines in the Kubrick at some point? Or is that just Hasbro's pet fetish? I think there's little need, but I really don't have much of a feel for how the Japanese market feels about the EU (or PT for that matter) and I think that drives the design and selection more than anything that happens elsewhere.
