Apparantly there's some confusion, despite it being stated quite clearly in our reports from Toy Fair this year, over the Hoth Han coming with 2 heads...  Someone may want to let them know to read the story before jumping to conclusions.

Where's the 3rd site tie-in to this mass of confusion?  Apparantly reading an article at GH that Pawlus wrote, everyone seemingly misread what he wrote since when I read the article Adam just noted that the figure doesn't have a "flip-up hood" feature....  And Adam's basing his thoughts/opinions on not seeing a second sculpted head at the time he wrote it I assume... 

It's amazing how people are just making **** up, or just looking at photos and not reading, and then you have a thread of speculating and debating that's causing other people to just get confused on the matter.

Sounds like a conspiracy to me. :-X

Yeah, I've noticed the same thing. It's just parr for the course when you have the younger crowd who not used to fact checking or research yet.

There shouldn't be any confusion here... it's very very simple - extra hood-up head, maybe, if approval is granted in time.  If not, no extra hood-up head.

They're a little miffed that the coat is brown, so they won't approve the hood unless it's blue.

Someone told me something funny about the Hoth Han Vintage thread at that otheR Site recently, and I guess it's spiraling out of control as people are not reading stories, or not reading them correctly, between three separate sites.   ::)

Apparantly there's some confusion, despite it being stated quite clearly in our reports from Toy Fair this year, over the Hoth Han coming with 2 heads...  Someone may want to let them know to read the story before jumping to conclusions.

As stated on the front page here, the Hoth Han may, or may not come with 2 heads, that's completely unknown, but the 2nd head that was displayed with Han (that our staffers got photos of) was REMOVED by Darryl DePriest due to the head not being yet approved by Lucasfilm, and he said it was not to be out yet.  We just got the photos of it as it hadn't been removed yet and we were the only site photographing that area at that time.

So far, my roughest of guesses, I'd assume it's NOT coming with Han in the vintage assortment this year...  A unique release some time down the road?  It could be a running change...  Anything really.  Either way you slice it though, the head was NOT LFL approved, and nobody right now knows if it's coming or not in the line, we just know it got pulled from the showroom floor.

Where's the 3rd site tie-in to this mass of confusion?  Apparantly reading an article at GH that Pawlus wrote, everyone seemingly misread what he wrote since when I read the article Adam just noted that the figure doesn't have a "flip-up hood" feature....  And Adam's basing his thoughts/opinions on not seeing a second sculpted head at the time he wrote it I assume...

Okay, I gotta raise my hand here and take some responsibility for this. I had misread JD's report and started spreading erroneous information about the Han coming with two heads. :-[ I did set the record straight though.

Nah it wasn't your fault Anton...  There was a lot of rampant "Oh man it comes with 2 heads" stuff long before you said anything.  I think you fell into the trap laid by others, haha.

Mmmm Anton I don't think that technically qualifies as the apology that you owe all of us.  I think I speak for everyone when I say that we went through hours of anxiety, heartache, agony and torment because of your actions.

Saying you're taking "some of the responsibility" isn't really going to satiate the bloodthirst that most of us have for revenge at this time.  You're going to have to say "I'm sorry."

Oh, and PM those of us who you caused the most distress and misery for our shipping addresses so you can compensate us with a free set of 30 AC Vintage, including as many variants of Han Hoth that are released.  Blue.  Brown.  Hood up.  Hood down.  Silly goggle hat of no apparent film origin.  All of 'em.

It's only then we'll find it in our heavy hearts to forgive you.

Dressel, I don't think that will be enough.  I think Anton will have to physically sculpt the hood-up version, mass produce it, and send it out free to everyone that actually looked at the pic.  :P :P :P

Anton's every 11 year old's scapegoat.   :)

I'm going to look at the pics again- these are just stellar.  I'm sure the Bossk will pegwarm like Greedo did, but I can't wait to get one anyway.  I HOPE next year Ponda Baba is one of the choices; he's also just a single purchase rather than a multiple army builder purchase, but the nostalgia factor alone makes this a must!
