Well, this does show up, so you were close.

I never realized how true the title of this thread was until I opened my torture rack Han. He really is sad.

I knew it. This is the sole reason I want one more Vintage wave.

As has been stated several times in this thread, Torture Rack Han wasn't intended to be a "definitive" Bespin Han figure.  The figure included a torture rack so that he can be displayed, well, in the torture rack, in pain, in torment, shirt tucked out, strained face, all that stuff.

I have to agree. I haven't found this figure yet, but it really seems like he's supposed to be good just for the torture rack. I don't display my medical table Vader doing anything other than getting operated on, and Bacta Tank luke just hangs out in the bacta tank all the time. It'll be the same with torture rack Solo.

I mean, you know we'll get a definitive Bespin Solo in the next Vintage wave, if not sooner, so its no big deal.

I'm pretty sure it's a wishlist unfortunately, would make for a great wave though!

That's totally a wishlist.  Especially since Hasbro has said explicitly in the Q&A process that the Vintage line is going to be taking next year off.

Great. Now I have Star Wars blue balls.  :-\

That really would have been a perfect wave though.

I agree.  If for some reason the vintage line was going to do one more wave and be done with, I'd be happy with that wave.  It fills the last "ultimate" Han need, gets another key Luke, one of the originals (Walrusman), finishes our "ultimate" bounty hunters (aside from maybe a new Dengar), and has two great army builders (Gamorrean/Hoth Soldier).  I'd be happy to see this lineup in 2009, if/when the VTSC comes back.

I think I'd like to see an Emperor, TIE Pilot and Royal Guard added... heck even an Endor Rebel.  And while I'm thinking of it... I'd also go for Yakface, AT-ST driver and a Death Star Trooper.

I'd be ok though with the vintage line never coming back IF we got definitive versions of those figures on regular cards or in Evolutions sets.

One thing I also think would be super cool would be if they did vintage 2-pks for the army builders... hee hee

Yeah, there are others that I'd like to see as well (the ones CHEWIE mentioned are all good choices), but that lineup listed is pretty good.  Hopefully we'll continue to see a wave of 6 or so each year, or they start incorporating this "style" of figure into the basic line more and more (because we know they can).
