I have more pics in the customizing forums, but here is a hood-up version I made since Hasbro refused to give us one  >:(

Nice job on that. You should crank those out for the population at large. ;)

Got my Vintage and and cracked them open. All the figures are great. I really can't critique each one on specifics except for:

IG-88: Best. Figure. Ever.

Daigo-bahs custom rocks!

I wish Hasbro would do a mail away offer for this alternative head - I would pay shipping!

Waiting for you in my special place...

Finally picked up a Bespin Luke last night at Wal-Mart.  They had several so it was cool to be able to pick the one with the best paint job.  Until last night, all I ever saw was the remnants of that wave at Target or TRU: Endor Leia & Hoth Han.

Great custom, Daigo-Bah! I think that Han with hood up is gonna happen down the road, he'll probably end up in a battle pack, give it a year or so. I hope they make a blue-coat variation of this sculpt as well!

Maybe we can get a hood up version with a new tauntaun.  I think it's about time that Hasbro revisited that particular creature.

Why? It was brown in the movie.

Yes, just like Luke's lightsaber blade.

Agreed. Too bad they missed the boat for this year with the Luke/Wampa/TaunTaun BP.

What I don't get is why we'd get the "cap" version anyway since Han never really wore it independently of the hood on film.

It might still be early, but I have noticed so far that this wave does seem more limited than last year's.  But, like I said, its still early.  With all the movie pushes this year (Spidey, Transformers, etc.) there might not be as much room to put out mass quantities of stuff like this right now.  I have continued to see these at Target and Wal-mart, but not many.  I believe our closest Target has 1 each of Luke, Leia, and Bossk.  Wal-mart had three of those "display" boxes full of them at one point, but this weekend all that was left was a single stack of the leftovers.  Leia is definitely the slowest seller here, followed by Hoth Han, and Bossk.  There is one or two Lukes here and there, and I haven't seen a Snowtrooper or IG-88 since the first time I found them.

Thus far I'd say that's right on.

I've seen them - but they're not piling up anywhere save the one Wal-Mart that  has an endcap.

To put some more perspective on this, there is one Wal-Mart in this area that still has about 6 pegs JAMMED with Endor Hans and Tusken Raiders and Greedos.

The VTSC (including Snowtroopers) are currently in stock individually at HasbroToyShop.  If I hadn't bought so much recently, I'd totally place an order for a few more troopers.
