And the clean shaven Hoth Rebel Soldier!

Since this is a Target exclusive can we expect a $30 price tag? :(

This might be worth a purchase!

Nice...missed opportunity for scene specifit Han and a "Taun-Taun wrangler", though. Not that I was expecting either one.

And wasn't Han's coat purple...uh...teal...black er...nice in the film. Nice looking coat.  ;)

sweet. I love this set my only gripe is no hood up Han... no problem it is a instant fix.  I think there is another tauntaun set with luke and the wampa like the attack/defense last year

Super psyched for this set, and I do hope we see a Luke companion set like Jeff mentioned earlier.  It would make sense, as these usually seem to come in sets of two - as well as the Luke Taun Taun proto that people saw earlier.  If it comes with an all-new Hoth Luke, that would be extra spiffy.  I wonder if they would save an all-new figure like that for the regular line though.  Either way, I'm all over this set as well - maybe a couple depending on price.  Too bad they couldn't have made this a "Vintage packaged" item, but I guess we wouldn't get the figures then (at least that way) since the Taun Taun was packaged alone in the vintage line, correct?  Anyways, looks good.

Blue Coat for the WIN!!

Hey man, keep your canon out of my "nostalgia"... ;)

I do hope the clean shaven Rebel has a hair color variation.

Great set.  What's that in the soldiers hand in the package?  That range finder thing from the dish cannon?

I'm kinda hoping a carded version of the Han in a brown coat myself, but I'm getting that set regardless.  It's glorious.  I get the blue coat nostalgia though.  I'll just be glad to retire the POTf2 stuff.

Luke's got me really curious now.

I hope to end all hopes that the other set is either Luke/Tauntaun/Wampa or Luke/Tauntaun/Probot all three of which are new

The set is beautiful, but does anyone think the Tauntaun is a bit over-scaled?  Jesse?

Hmm, never thought much about it.

I'd wager, as with just about everything, there's a difference in scale between the lifesize prop for the hangar scenes and the maquette.  I'll have to check that out next time ESB is on or I have a little time to dig into that. 

For some reason I'd be more forgiving of something being off on the Taun-Taun, but it does look a tad larger than the POTF2, which always looked right to me...  Could be just how it's posed or something too I guess.
