With all the reports of slow-moving Slave 1s, I wonder if we'll be seeing Hasbro make an ESB version.
I sure hope we see the ESB version down the road, but its tough to tell with sales. We've heard that "sales will determine the future" line from Hasbro in the past, specifically recently with big vehicles and although the Falcon, AT-TE, and Turbo Tank all saw wide and in some cases low clearances but we continue to see things like the AT-AT (and now Slave 1). I went ahead and ordered this pack at TRU.com. As I've said before, I really want the Slave 1 and Bossk, and the other new figures are nice too....and that, combined with the frustration of the Jabba pack just got me to go ahead and order it. I doubt I'll be able to unload Mace's fighter on anyone, but in the end I think I'll be happy I got the rest of it. I'm one of those who would rather have the ESB version, and I really hope we see it next year. I don't buy a lot of PT/CW ships anymore, but I do have at least a couple from each movie, and like having a nice Obi-Wan Jedi Starfighter along with Jango's Slave I from AOTC. One of my favorite parts of that movie. You would think a store (hopefully TRU or Target) would love to have the ESB repaint as an exclusive. You could pack it with the Evo Fett and a new Carbonite block and it would make a pretty spiffy pack.
