Everything Legacy is now Vintage-style...  No sub-line.  The realistic movie line is now a "vintage look" line.  Everything else is going to be on the Clone Wars blue sky cardbacks (vehicles, deluxe, Legends, Clone Wars, etc.).

Hasbro confirmed this week that we're getting new Dak and Cloud Car Pilot figures.

Does this mean that this wave has more than six "new" figures?

I'm okay with it if it does, 'cause that means out of that first case of 12 figures, the more "new" figures the better - the less likely there will be peg-warmers right out of the gate.

I also can't imagine that they wouldn't re-issue the new AT-AT driver in this wave with the AT-AT coming out and all.

The word is that the AT-AT will include the AT-AT Driver.

while I Dak isn't at the top of my list - I do find it very good news to hear he is coming, along with the CC pilot - I will nab them both (and an extra of the CC pilot of course).

But with all of these products coming out now focused on the release of this AT-AT (Snowspeeder Luke, AT-AT driver, AT-AT commander, Dak, Snowspeeder, etc?), I am kinda hoping we see the Snowtrooper Officer guy to go with it all.  While he is not high on my want list, like Dak, all the justifications and them some are out there to put this guy on the shelves right now imo.

I would think that since there are so few differences between him and regular trooper (new headsculpt. rank badge, and I think he is all white), this would be easy/cheap for Hasbro to do.

They confirmed the figures, but not the place or time they would be coming.  They could be in this wave or they could be in a Battle Pack or a 2011 ESB wave or whatever.  We'll have to wait for Toy Fair to figure it out.

Hasbro never explicitly stated that the 24 new figures for this fall would be divided equally between 4 waves.  But there's also the potential like Jeff stated that any of these figures that Hasbro has confirmed might be part of a battle pack or multipack.  Until Hasbro lays out their plan at the Toy Fair presentation things are going to remain a little bit murky.

Actually, you'd be surprised at the differences, Smash.  I think Dago-bah or someone did a really detailed custom of the Snowtrooper Officer seen in the AT-AT cockpit talking with Veers.  His boots were different, and his uniform overall had a number of differences (no pouches on the belt for instance I believe).  I was surprised when a comparison was done actually.  The facemask was the most noticeable difference though, as was the rank badge of course.  But there was a lot more to it overall as well.

He's a figure I'd like to see as well since he gets some screentime with Veers there. :)

Maybe Dak will be in the Hoth BP with the beardless rebel trooper.

Here is a head scratcher. Infamous eBay seller "tunghori" has up for bid, a 4-LOM figure that has a drastically different paint job when compared to the TAC version. Could this be a homage repaint to reissue on the Vintage card or a custom? Hmm.....

I wouldn't mind seeing that figure get re-released.  I always wanted to pick up one more extra of 4-LOM (as well as the VTSC Bossk and IG-88), and this would be a great year to get the bounty hunters out there again.  Although it would be too many figures for a "regular" battle pack, it wouldn't be a bad time to have a store exclusive battle pack with all the ESB bounty hunters in it.  Of course, they would likely have to use the older Dengar with a better one on the pegs right above it, so that might be silly.

I just placed two orders with him 3 days apart as new figures popped up. I really want one of these but I will wait a few days. This looks much nicer and truly closer to the Vintage one. If these are the kind of repaints in store for Vintage they will definitely get me to buy again. This is like the resurgence of the 2004 OTC line in terms of newness/refresh.

That's a very faithful homage to the vintage 4-LOM/Zuckuss paint job.  I'd say he's one the repacks.  Probably means we'll see Zuckuss again - maybe as 4-LOM - to complete the set.

I definitely would welcome a vintage-style paint app on the TAC 4-LOM - like Jack said - if this is the kind of thing they have planned, then I will definitely not have a problem buying some of the upcoming repacks.

I have to wonder if a Death Star Trooper repaint like the Death Squad Commander might  be on the way as well (one can hope!)

Okay, that might be pretty cool.  There are some pretty creative repaints they could do for this vintage line...

One of the rumor lists has the Death Squad Commander on it.  I'd say it's a pretty safe bet.
