Very disappointing that the Snowtrooper won't be able to stand neutrally.

That probably just shaved 15 off of the number of him that I'm buying.

My hope is that almost everyone feels the same way.

Although, I can't believe how many scout troopers I found.  I bought 30 and could have had double that.

I remember my dream now.

Hopefully snow trooper won't have the same problem as Cody. :-X
I'm still getting as many as I see, I learnt my lesson with the scout. (x 1 out of the 80 I've probally seen but atleast he's being re-packed next year)

I'm gonna make the call once I see one in person.... as for the numbers, I think Hasbro's figured out by now that they can sell these guys and that they need to get lots of the SA OT Troops out there.

I bought about 25 biker Scouts and probably could have had 150 if I bought every one I passed up.

Hell, 6 or 7 of mine I got on clearance for $2.50

I see no problem with finding snow troopers next year, all of them will warm. I'm worried about the basic troops (Stormies, SBDs, Marines & Air Borne)

Given we've not seen a case breakdown yet, I wouldn't speak so fast on that issue...  Snowtroopers 1 to a case, Bossk 5.  I'm just saying...  it could happen.

Exciting figures.....

Bespin Luke: It's about freakin time.
Snowtrooper: I hope that picture doesn't due the figure justice.  We will see about the preposed/legs
                   and the skirt when the final product is out.  If all is well, it's 20+ biker scout caliber army   
                   building time.
IG-88: Badass looking mofo.
Bossk: I'll take this badboy.  However, I would of prefered Zuckuss or 4-Lom in this set.
Endor Leia: Hard to say with that poncho.  She looks good standing next to endor luke.
Han: Very good likeness.  It's time to give us an updated open belly taun-taun with intestines hasbro.

You really think so? I'm pretty confident that despite the early pics, it'll be the first one to go.

The plus side is that out of a case of 10, the Snowtrooper should be 2 per case in every revision.

i think han and leia will warm. they have a history of doing so not only in the vintage lines but also in the basic lines. but cool for me, more availability. (of them at least)

i just noticed that despite the fact that this is the 30th anniversary of ANH, there are no ANH characters in the vintage line this year.

i wonder if there will be another 'collect all the vintage figs to get a cool mailaway' offer this year?

I dont think the Snow trooper will Peg warm. if anything i can see Boosk IG-88 and maybe Leia peg warm. Luke will be the first to go, followed by Han followed the the snowtrooper. this is just based on patterns I have noticed with those figures in my area. based on the titanium figures Boosk and IG-88 shouldnt be TOO hard to find....Then again i could be wrong...very wrong.  ;)

i agree, luke will be first to go. but i disagree about ig88 warming, i think he'll be one of the hardest to find.

i can see him being one of the hardest to find to...im just talking about the stores in my area though. when the vintage first came out...there was half an aisle literally jammed packed with vintage figures. luke was the only one to be sold out...on the first day, then the scout, the other three figures were left on the shelf for a good month or so before it was down to only greedo.

im just basing my guess that Boosk and IG-88 will warm because one of them is an aliean the other a droid and none of them are main characters. then there is the fact that if they are shipped with more in a box then the snowtroop and luke they will be easier to get, and there will be more left on the shelves.

and of course remember im just talking about this based on my area. for sure though after a month that this line is realesed they will all be hard to find.
