Great pic! I agree it's so Battlefront bland. They need to give him all of that jazz in the picture above. Hey, at least it is a new figure!  I hope to see Vintage decos on the other packs like an all black Han, orange obi, Vint color boba, upgraded Tusken arms, a new Lobot and a gray INC to start. I will buy the sets then.

I'd buy two Death Squad Commander sets even if it had cat turds in the other slots.

BTW the newness of the Gonk has sparked some discussion on Twitter...  follow me @Jesse_James77 and follow our site @JediDefender if you're on!

And if you're not on Twitter (it's easy from your smart phone), you should be. :)

I'd buy, and I'd pay decent if they were sculpted modern and just paint updates.  I love the costumes and would love to see them updated to a modern look.

When was the last time we got a Hammerhead? Was it the 2006 Saga collection? I think it was - that figure had a great sculpt, but he is far from being in the same class as the other Vintage figures these days, so to make that set an updated Hammerhead would have to be in the cards, and I could totally see them saving that for the 3D re-release of A New Hope.

Yeah, Hammerhead needs an all new sculpt.  The old one looks cool but the articulation is too old school.

There are so many upgrades and cool decos that Hasbro can do with these sets. I am officially excited.

I will be at SDCC this year for my work on Thursday and Friday, I cant wait to see the newness first hand. Anyone else from JD going?

Besides the set revealed this is what's left san retreads:

Han Solo, Princess Leia, Obi-Wan Kenobi
Hammerhead, Walrusman, Greedo
Tusken Raider, Boba Fett, Snaggletooth
Han Bespin, Ugnaught, Lobot
Leia Hoth, R2-D2 Sensorscope, Luke Hoth
C-3PO Removable Limbs, Ugnaught, Cloud Car Pilot

Take your bets for the other two! My guesss:
Hammerhead, Walrusman, Greedo (Hammerhead new maybe in blue, Greddo all Green no vest)
Han Bespin, Ugnaught, Lobot (Lobot is new and the Ugnaught with Purple Apron and V2 head)

Han Bespin is still and demand and Ponda is really in demand so this would be a great way to get them out again. Like the other sets it would be nice if they tighten up Han Bespin like they tightened up decos in the previous sets.

Which is why they'll make Tusken Raider, Boba Fett, Snaggletooth.

Wal-Mart Tusken, repaint of Snags (I forgot his EU name) and the current battle pack Fett.

Ugh.  So now I get to shell out $50+ to get the two new figures I want (Power Droid, Snags) because we're back to the days of one new figure I want with a bunch of repacks I already have.  Great.   ::)

Yeah - I'm be getting these too - interesting that this wave is just two sets as opposed to three like the previous ones...

One new figure is all it take to sucker me in.
