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!)


Oh please not a straight repaint... that thing is WRONG for a Vintage Death Squad Commander.  And by today's scale standards that DST from a couple years ago is Wookie Tall.

There are rumors/theories floating about that this figure may be part of the "Bounty Hunter Collection" that turned up on the Hasbro marketing slide a few weeks ago. If that is the case, I'd venture a guess that we'd get the other bounty hunters with vintage deco as well. Thoughts?

Yeah, that new 4-LOM Ebay picture kind of let's that cat out of the bag.  Damn they know how to get my money.

There may be another figure mailaway running around the same time as the Boba Fett.  But that one has not been identified yet.  And it seems that the new line is geared very much around the nostalgia of the vintage era.  It makes me think that this 4-LOM might be another mailaway.  4-LOM was one of the more notable giveaways of the vintage era, especially with the mixup between 4-LOM and Zuckuss.  Could Hasbro be trying to right that wrong?

I don't think they'll try to sneak 4-LOM into this basic figure wave, but instead into one of the follow-up repack waves, if Hasbro's still doing that process.

I'm very much pleased w/ ALL of the figure choices - although I just might pass on Veers (Hell, I never asked for him). I'm SOO-O-O glad Luke's getting an update, cuz that TAC sculpt was just twisting my arm. Although I will say my eyes almost started bleeding when I saw he had no jointed ankles.

At this point, Hasbro's sculpting is so horridly amazing - each figure is now a miniature sculpture.

Yeah, I kind of dig the vintage throwback paint job on the 4-Lom. The real question is, will they call him Zuckuss?

A member at POTF2.com claims the vintage paint-app'd 4-LOM/Zuckuss is another exclusive.  I guess he has some inside info?  It'll be interesting to see how that pans out.

So does this mean that Zuckuss (fka 4-LOM on vintage card) might have the full vinyl gown and snap-on gear?

That would be nice, but I doubt it.  I ordered this from overseas - I assume this will be on the vintage card, so I'd like an opener.

my prediction (not including confirm luke, leia, dengar, at at cmdr)

Echo Base Han Solo
Rebel Deck Officer
Snowtrooper (VTAC repack)
4-Lom (TAC repack) w/ zuckuss name
Zuckuss (TLC repack) w/ 4-Lom name
C-3PO w/ removable limbs
Imperial TIE Pilot (TLC Evoutions repack) 
Lando Calrissian (VOTC repack) w/ new arms

I think Dack will end up in a BP  w/  the second version hoth trooper. This vintage collection has endless possibiliies like they could do

Yoda
TLC Snowspeeder Luke
TLC Obi-Wan w/ Spirit colors
Hoth Han Solo w/ hood up
TLC Medical Frigate Luke & Leia
Dack
Bespin Guard
Willrow Hood (I add a little humor)

I am really digging this 4-Lom. I will definitely be ordering him along with the Felucian. I hope some more stuff pops up. I needs me a SW fix.

Ooooh this wave is friggin' sweet.

Aside from the four we've seen, there's...
- Hoth Hangar Han w/welding gear (SWEET)
- New 3PO
- Dak
- 3pc helmet Vader (it's really 3pcs this time)
- Fett (redeco)
- 4-LOM (redeco)
- Cloud Car Pilot

11 figures in the wave is a great way to kick things off. :)

Jesse is working on downloading pics, hopefully the will go up soon...

The new 3P0 looks like he might be based on the droid factory figure. Either way i think I see elbow joints there! Pretty sweet looking stuff there, shame we didn't get a sneak peek at wave 2.

Saw the pics on Yakface's Facebook page... Looks like a great wave. The only stinkers appear to be Han (reusing the crappy VTSC body from 2006) and Vader (tiny head/no neck). I can't wait to see better pics of the 3PO.
