Looks like that hood up headsculpt's getting some use, finally.

The probe droid looks to be a POTF2 repaint...  Not a ton interesting.  I'm hoping Chewie is less snowey, but I'm not hopeful for that.  The Han and astromech make the set IMO.  A clean K-3PO will be nice though too.

Especially if that K-3PO is based off of either R-3PO or Droid Factory C-3PO molds, as opposed to the old TC-14 based version.

Some are surfacing, but they seem to be from some random guy and aren't all very clear or at all large...  The Hasbro event's still going on right now, if the timetable's holding up, so we should be seeing the photo blitzes before too, too long.

It's a bit difficult to tell from that photograph, but K-3P0 seems to not be a straight repack of the 2000 POTJ version.  It looks like it could either be the 2005 ROTS Threepio or the 2006 Pegwarming Champion of All Time Endor Threepio mold.  Hmm.  If that's the case (and if the Probe Droid is painted much better and is sans day-glo orange missles), this could be one BP I keep more than two figures out of! :)

Nice to know it's not an exclusive since it's at Toy Fair.

Looking at that 3PO I'd say it's a repaint of the Endor version. The ROTS one diddn't have jointed knees.

And he appears to be undamaged (pre- base assault)

It could also be a 4-LOM body. It is really hard to tell in that little image but I almost think I can make out articulated elbows... I could very easily be wrong. I guess we will see later today as the good pictures come in.

Either way though I'm in for one of this set. :)
