Isn't this vintage line on tap for at least the next two years?  I'm sure they'll see the outcry from the collector community and slot Fett in somewhere...maybe?  I must be in the minority (who doesn't have a complete vinty collection) who's actually happy about the repro Fett.   :-\

I thought most people on here were in favor of a repro rocket Fett (myself included).  I'm not as in favor of the craptastic removeable helmet and suck paint job shown in that thread though.   :P

By the reaction at the event, I think the majority like the repro vintage fett over a modern Fett getting a vintage deco (which I'd buy as well, but I'm less interested in only because this piece at least applies, in some capacity, to my actual vintage collection).

People at the show seemed kind of geeked on the rocket firing Fett when presented with it though.

Was the new desert deco paint scheme and jango head shown at the show?  I'd love to get the prototype image we saw, but am much less excited about this after seeing the revised paint job and silly jango head underneath.

As far as I'm aware that's a custom...  The image in the Hasbro slide is what we're getting.  It's a completely new tool that tried (as hard as they could) to stay to the original...  It's not exact though and Hasbro was sure to point that out (which should limit fraud some too).

That would be this:

Yeah, the figure pictured in that post is the poster's own custom figure and has nothing to do with what we're getting in the fett mail-away or (to get this back on topic  :P) the Zuckuss/4LOM C-V exclusuive set.

Whew!  Okay, thanks for clearning that up for me.  No offense to the CA, but I would so much rather get the one in true vintae colors.

Back to Zuckuss/4LOM...can anyone tell me if the loose Zuckuss being offered here is likely the same as the upcoming exclusive?

It is listed as "tlc exclusive" - and has different paint apps than the TAC version - so, from what I can tell from the presentation slide pics - this one does appear to be the same to me as the one in the upcomming ewxclusive pack.

I just assume at somepoint they will add a modern Fett with vintage deco.  They love shoving out all sorts of Fetts at us.  Probably because a lot of people are like me and buy them.  I think they will do it eventually.  I thought they would just go ahead and do them all this year but maybe not?

Being that I come from the "newer" generation (:P), I had to look up the error cards in Rebelscum's Photo Archives. It was quite interesting to read up, and it's also a cool little piece of history. I wonder what Hasbro's going to put as far as info on the back card(s) of the pack.

Aren't these for sale now at some e-tailers? I think Brian's Exorbitant Prices Toy's has them.

Has anyone ordered these yet?

Yes BT has them (where I got mine), but it is the Jedi-Con version, the only difference being the sticker on the slipcase. I imagine the CV version will have something similar.
