I got a gut feeling that the Hammerhead in the future Creature set is going to be new  ;) the Power Droid is new, Snags is new, why not because Greedo and Walrus Man don't need a updated

When are we going to get a new Yak Face? I don't think we've had once since POTF2.

Didn't Hasbro confirm at some point last year that either Yakface or Ree Yees was coming? I seem to recall something to that effect in one of the QnA's.

Dashes any final hopes of his packmates being different.  I needed another Boba Fett to blow up with firecrackers, anyway. That mail in one didn't last long.

Ugh, irritates me so much to think I'll have to shell out like $30 for a Target 3-pack if I want snags... :(

Awww, damn.  This totally blows the POTF2 Cinema Scene Takeel out of the water.

We can add the broken promise of multi-packs either being all new or all repacks to Hasbro's scorecard. Oh, that's right they've broken that one already with Blu-Ray 4-pack's battle droid.

Ah, when cantina aliens used to be underappreciated peg warmers.

I will buy it when I see it and hold onto it and not open it up for three months to see what happens with the mold a little later down the line.

With any luck he'll be recolored neon green and packaged with a spring-action accessory as big as himself in 2013.

Cool info over at the yakface front page about snaggletooth having a back-belt holster and the gonk opening up to reveal the insides.

I don't get the talk of repainting this guy blue...that makes no real sense to me.  I'd rather see updates of Zutton/Zutmore/Lame EU retcon in Red and Blue than a blue repaint of Takeel

I think a lot of it has to do with Zutton and Takeel being the same height and in roughly the same outfit.

The Zutton we already got in the POTJ line was actually another character (according to Wookiepedia) called Rachalt Hyst - who is seen in the Holiday Special.

If you look at the image of the "Unusual Suspects" from Star Wars Insider...



... you'll see that they are nearly identical in design.

So what's really wrong is that Kenner made this figure:



And then pictured Rachalt Hyst from the Special Edition. (or another Snivvian who looks like her).

So really, what you're looking for is an update this this figure:



Put on a replica of the old Kenner cardback....

Personally, I'd take a Takeel from this 3-pack on a new Takeel Vintage Card, a repaint of him on a Zutton Vintage Card and an updated POTJ Zutton, renamed to simply "Snaggletooth" (maybe with the Rachalt Hyst name underneath) on a replica of the Kenner card AND an updated version of the figure below on a "Blue Snaggletooth" cardback....



I'm not asking for much.  ;D

I've got good news for me...  I'm getting both new 3-packs, soon, and I cannot be happier about that.  I was writing Snags off thinking he'd be too much...  Oh joy!  Love that headsculpt the most.

Great figure...  dread those at full price though.
