A Jabba on throne box set  :o



I have been wanting one for a long time. I would be very happy with that.

I hope to see OT Kubricks. 

Don't get me wrong, the PT ones look great, but I made my choice of not getting them and (so far) have stuck to my guns, but I'm getting jealous of everyone getting new Kubricks.

Keep in mind, I have no idea exactly what/when/where these are yet... just getting some pics from the show:

Pilot Jango and Baby Boba!


Holo Vader, R2-B1, Chewie/Wookiee? 


I have also heard that Series 10 is at the show (maybe the stuff in the second pic?)... no confirmation on what is what yet though!

Maybe it's another 5-piece boxed set?

I'm surprised that they have taken this long to reuse the Chewbacca mold (or at least the head, anyway).  Did one of his fellow Wookies in the Sith film have stripes like that?

The pilot Jango and young Boba figures look great.  Not a big fan of the holo Vader and R2-B1, but would really like to have a few more wookies in my collection!

Figures that just when I finally get the early bird set they re-release Chewbacca. I hope it's a prequel wookie instead.

The big news for me is that they apparently are releasing super-deformed VCDs of Yoda and R2D2! Isn't that what I see in the background?

EDIT: To answer my own question, yes they are VCDs.

Like icruise said, they are apparently VCD figures...

Here's an updated list of what they "definitely" had on display...  sounds like there may be a few other things mixed in... still trying to figure it all out.

VCD Prototype [Vintage] Fett
VCD Yoda
VCD R2-D2
Kubrick Series 10
RAH Han Solo
RAH Ep3 Anakin
RAH Ep2 Clone Trooper (Captain/Red)
RAH Ep2 Clone Trooper (Commander/Yellow)

I'm definitely intrigued by their RAH Solo and Anakin.

Just an FYI that I spun off the VCD talk and moved it to the existing thread on them.  ;)

Someone over at Kubrick Nation speculated that these figures could be an upcoming Toys R Us exclusive set.  I thought that was an interesting idea since there hasn't been one in a while.  Any thoughts on that?
