Seems like Tarkin's now slated for the Vintage Line according to DD in the Force Cast.

My cat Grand Moff Howie and I are very pleased.

Not the real thing of course, but it sure would rock if they made him look like this custom version by Evergray:

That would be good for me, Chewie. Nice work, Evergray!

It was mentioned specifically that it's Grand Moff Tarkin, Vintage Collection.

But Captain Tarkin from Clone Wars is cool.

Tarkin's my favorite character, and MY cat, Tarkin, would enjoy any new version I'm sure.

oh yeah I know that, I was just kinda going off idea that Hasbro might not be trailing the figure too far behind his CW debut.  To me it strengthens his release to hopefully be sooner than later.

K, I just wanted to make sure DD was actually pretty clear on it being Vinty was all.

I'd gladly buy an animated Captain Tarkin though.  It's the only character I buy "everything" of.  It's the only mini-bust I own.  I'm a big Tarkin freak.  My cat's named Tarkin...  Love Peter Cushing.  I'm curious now how his character is developed in The Clone Wars too now that they've revealed him. :)

Whaa?!?!

Complete awesomeness!!!

TVC or not, they HAVE to do an animated Tarkin. Heck, if they can double-dip for Barriss, they could support Tarkins in two lines as well.

Thanks for that news!

I didn't care for the way they made up the ROTS Tarkin...  Looks awkward, and just because Cushing was Gaunt doesn't mean he looked like a corpse his whole life.  They really should've attempted to look at him as a young man and duplicate it.

I agree, Jesse. That whole make up was off. It's sad that the CW version looks a lot better than the Sith version. Of course, maybe if Lucas has bought the rights to Cushing's likeness, he could digitally place his head and make him younger for that Star Destroyer scene.

IIRC, the plan was to use a digitally recreated Cushing, but they couldn't make it look right. Instead they heavily made up Wayne Pygram for what amounts to less than a minute of screen time.
