Too bad the waves following this one suck.  Nobody wants prequel **** on vintage cards.

Speak for yourself. I'm all for it. If they are going to make prequel toys it might as well be on cool cards.

Yep, I want them on prequel cards to.  Much better than the genericy looking junk that is out there now.

This is interesting, at least to me...

The Tale of Two Leia Paintjobs...


Clicky to check it out!

So both Leia Hoth figures are pretty distinctly different in their decoration...  One's very clean, one is not.  We got some carded samples of Wave 1 figures last week, and one of them was Hoth Leia as well.    And it appears she is the clean version, and the version we're pretty sure will be out on shelves, but the dirty figure is something of a mystery.

Factory Flub?

Battlepack repack/repaint?

Possible hand-painted hardcopy (THe paintjob does look particularly "sharp" to me, which is odd on many actual production figures)?

I found it interesting that both turned up at about the same time, and am curious if we're only getting the one version.  I don't recall Leia being that dirty in the movie, ever, but I guess it's possible.  I can't really recall how she looked upon arriving at Bespin.  The simple explanation is she's just a factory error which I'm sure is more common with things like paint washes, but you never know.  Either way I'm much happier seeing the basic figure SHOULD be clean, as she wasn't a sewage authority worker for the Alliance.  :-X

ESB dialogue on the Millenium Falcon -


Leia: "Stop that..."

Han: "Stop what?"

Leia: "My hands are dirty"

Han: "Well my hands are dirty too"

I'll not be picking up the prequel sets carded. I consider them an abomination.  :-X

Dirty paintjob or not, this is one of my most-wanted main character resculpts, so I'm glad it's coming.

I received my Dak and 3 At-At commanders from one of the over seas sellers. Both very nice. I'm really digging the At-At commander, a reversal from my early initial impression, and will be buying several more when he officially comes out. The ones I received didn't have painted rank insignia's on the tunic, but that's okay since these will be customized.

I saw (via Yak's FB) that some guy in CA found these in the backroom of a local toy shop.

Don't know if they were asian imports or how/why the store had them, but it looks like the case has a "don't sell these before 8/6" type warning on them.  ::)

Kind of interesting they've put a street date on toys that have no real reason to have one...  There's no media release to coincide...  Just simply wanting to be dickish about putting them out to buy I guess.  Very odd.

Maybe Hasbro is just trying to make sure the scalpers will make a TON of money selling them early at SDCC?  :P

I think most street dates like these are for the retailers sake. Makes Target and Wal Mart have to wait until the same time so one doesn't get a jump on the other store.

I truly detest street dates.  Especially when some stores put stuff out early, and then won't sell it.

If only Walmart gave a damn about stocking their shelves.  ;D

So outside of the movie lines and the Legacy EU wave - have there been street dates for the regular line in a non-movie year?  I don't really recall, but it's frustrating to know that someone in the US already scored the first wave. 

Seems like the race should be on, but that's not happening yet.   :(

The Legacy collection with the stormtrooper head card had a first day of issue sticker.
