I paged through a few comics this last week but didn't see it?  Anyone spotted it yet?



I'm going to frame this baby!

I'm not sure about the ad itself being released, but I have heard several people saying they've found both versions of the Hoth Han Solo.  Unfortunately I haven't seen any new figs in a long time, but good luck finding it.  The only store I have heard people seeing this is are Walmarts.

I've been seeing that ad for months. Wish new figures were as easy to find.

It's ironic that Hasbro's taken a proactive approach to advertising these toys when they're so rare. I'm sure a suit at Hasbro will deduct that the scarcity is due to the ad campaign.  ::)

Yep, I'll concur on the Toyfare ads.  Inside front cover for one.

My correct Blue coat will be in the mail early next week. Iíll ask my dealer if he has that fake-o Brown version as well, or if Iíll have to wait for it.

 I thought that the first initial waves would be the blue variation and the waves later this summer would be the brown variation...similar to the dirty/clean scout trooper or beard/shaved endor trooper

The Brown Coat will be packed in later assortments according to Hasbro and www.starwars.com.

I believe Brown Coat Han is to be in the wave that has the new Luke, Vader, and Snowtrooper.
I guess time will tell.

For those of you looking for me. I am now at www.sandtroopers.com

Ack!  NO!  I wanted a blue one.  Somebody help please.  I'll get brown in my case from newforce, but need the blue.  Stoopid Hasbro.  grumble, mutter, stomp, stomp...

It was in ToyFare this month.  They run all of the SW ads.

I've seen the ad a number of times myself, for at least the last month or two.  As for the figure itself, like BB mentioned above, the Brown version isn't out yet, but the blue one started showing up a few weeks ago.  I was lucky enough to get him and Chewie from a buddy of mine.  I don't care if the coat's blue or brown myself really.  I'll be buying both.  I just think it's awesome that Hasbro actually listened to the collectors voices on the boards and made such a great gesture to us as to create both!

And that ad is just classic!  Cool idea of framing it OCB.  Actually, wouldn't it be pretty sweet to frame all of the clever little Hasbro ads from the past year, all in a row?  How many have there been now?  Obviously the current Aayla one is cool.  What were the other prior ones?  I'm having total brain lock right now and can't even remember what they all were.  Anyone?
