I am happy with the mail away coins. In a way a nice nod to the vintage line.

Clicky to see

He looks browner to me...  at least in this photo.

Now the great "what coat color does the toy have" debate can start. :)

Interesting possible story on that to come Dressel...  Stay tuned.

In the meantime, clicky the images and enjoy the picture goodness...  You guys can thank Rob/Paul here because they did outstanding work getting good shots.




And IG-88 HAS his knife and both blasters...  And as per our story earlier during our pre-photo coverage of Toy Fair, he's noticeably taller than the other characters in the vintage line-up making him hopefully the proper scale for the character (thanks to Dago-Bah's photos showing he's a step below everyone).

Eh, any of those are still possible, I'll say that...  I'm not sure on that.  I have to talk to the guys again to get some more specs.

In the meantime enjoy the goodness that is Bossk... Sure we've all got him, but he ain't this friggin' cool is he? :)


And the Snowtrooper...


As noted in our pre-photo coverage of the show, the Snowtrooper was said by Hasbro reps to NOT be the final product, and that the skirt would be a ligher fabric similar to that of Endor Luke's poncho.

Also the other details like the pouches are hopefully fixed along with the cloth.

The gaping legs of the SNowtrooper bother me but not enough to stop me from army building.  I think the stance can get fixed with a boil/freeze.  Too bad they got goofy with his stance though...  why on earth do that?   ???

Yeah I really didn't want many standing at attention anyhow, most will be displayed in battle gunning down Hoth Rebel Troopers if we ever get any.  In the meantime I have customized Derlins holding their place.

Oh man.  I am geeked out for these figures after seeing the pics.  Luke looks much better than the previous "leaked" photo.

These look great!  The packages have a "Special Offer" sticker on them.  What's that all about?  Looks like Fett.  Maybe an ESB paintjob?

The snowtrooper in the Package actually had a more closed stance than the loose prototype.  Not standing at attention by any means, but still a bit more narrow.

The Luke in person is much better than that leaked photo from a week or so ago, and I think the photo's prove that.

The packaged display version was not painted skin/flesh like the prototypes, but cast/molded like the figures have been lately.

Earlier in the thread...


As per our Toy Fair coverage...

2007 is the year of the coin.  Instead of a lame figure you mail-away for coins, I'd assume to complete the booklet, but either way that's cool to me...  At least it's something that eases the $10 pricepoint a bit.

I really like these six figures. All of them look very well articulated while retaining detailed sculpts and good paint jobs. I think the coins are a cool giveaway, and I'm definitely interested in getting one of each figure. I may also try to get three additional Snow Troopers. I hope that Lucasfilm approves the hooded head for Han Solo, because I think it looks great. I have high hopes for these vintage-style figures.
