This set is very tempting. Would love to get the 2 bounty hunters in the vintage paint jobs/cloaks, but I'm worried about the pricing.

I am in the same boat here with getting two sets. This will be $19.99-$24.99 so it will not be atrocious but add the shipping and it gets expensive unless you can clump your order.

A reminder to all of you thinking of buying an opener of what is likely to be a more expensive exclusive set -

Remember that the vintage deco 4-LOM in the set is the same one that is already coming in Vintage Wave 1 (only difference is the correct "4-LOM" name on the card).  Since they are going to the trouble of creating a "vintage" deco Zuckuss for this set, I would not be surprised to see him slipped into the basic figure line-up too at some point (on a corrected "Zuckuss" card).

The point of the set is the "true" Kenner cards (with the mixed up names).  Just don't want to see a bunch of people buy up this exclusive to open and then turn around and get ticked when the figures show up cheaper in the basic figure line...

I will only get one set because of the high price.  I am definately looking forward to this pack though.  Too much vintage goodness there.  It's almost a must buy for me really.

That's a good tip.  Thanks Jeff!

Thanks, Jeff. I'll definitely wait then. If they're already making the card designs for the error 2-pack, then it would make sense for them to release them separately corrected.

See I remember reading this somewhere earlier, but the only reason I'm even considering an opener is because of the Zuckuss. If he isn't released in the basic line, I'll have to get a second of this set just to have a loose Zuckuss with the awesome cape. THAT'S what would make me ticked off. :P

Seems like this 2 guys are the last step in Zucluss and 4 Lom evolution.

Only a Zuckuss which shows his real face beneath his mask could be the ultimate step

as it happens with the 3 parts mask helmet Vader for vintage collection, which reisues the evolution vader body.

Time to annoy everyone...  Turns out that I got some mis-information in the showroom - sorry!   :-[

I sent an email to Hasbro to clarify since I was getting some conflicting info PMs from folks and they confirmed that the info I got in the showroom was wrong - the plan as it stands right now is that the "Kenner" decos will only be available in the C-V set.... for now.

4LOM in Wave 1 should have the 2007 deco, 4LOM in the C-V exclusive set should have the Kenner deco.  Same for Zuckuss.  If (when) he makes it to the basic line, he'll most likely have the 2009 deco and not this vintage deco...

Sory again for confusing everyone!  Too much ToyFair info packed into my head in a short timespan I guess...

That would have been too good to be true. Thanks the clarification though, Jeff.

So we're getting Kenner deco 4-LOM and Zuckuss.  That's cool, I can dig it, I thought the colors on the TLC Zuckuss were weak anyway.  But what about Kenner deco Boba Fett?  (And no, Rocket Fett doesn't count.)

I really wish they would have went with Vintage Deco Fett instead of repro Fett for the Mailaway figure...oh well
