2009 Medicom Collectors Box Set

Could the wookiee actually be Chewbacca from the Holiday Special Cartoon?

Previous 5 packs have had the Droids Wicket and C-3PO and there's the carded R2 and Fett. Maybe this is another in a series of nods to those old animations?

Damn, that's a great idea Jayson!  I did think it was strange that they would be re-releasing the Chewbacca with only a slight variation on the paint job...

I was looking at the holo Vader again and was wondering if Medicom will finally make the helmet one piece instead of two with this figure.  It doesn't make sense that this figure would have two pieces and be removable for a holo figure...  The close-up picture leaves room for debate...

Cool!

I had a sneaking suspicion that Mace would show up in a box set as he's way too popular in Asia/Japan to be simply a chase figure.  Cool beans on the Pilot, he'll go well with the Red B-Wing pilot.  :)

And nice catch on the potential Holiday Special colors on Chewie Jay, it looks like a definite possibility there.

If it's anything like the last few box sets, I'm sure you'll see someone eBaying the figures individually so you can just grab a Chewie that way...

I'd love to get just the Vader and the droid from this set. The other figures I don't care about.

Not crazy about the holo Vader, but I like the rest of them.  I'm with you evenflow, I would have rathered a Droids Chewbacca.
