2015 "Mission Series" Figure 2-Packs
« on: October 9, 2014, 10:01 AM »
Same story as the basic Legends I guess (overshadowed by the Black Series stuff), but these looked great too. 

Hoth Han and Luke, Dagobah R2 and Yoda, Stormtrooper Luke and Leia - all great sculpts.  They'd look even better with some more articulation though...  :-X

These continue to amaze. I know there's been a lot of hate with them, but you can't argue with the sculpts and as Jayson said the Yoda is better than the one that just came out. This Yoda destroys, really, just about any modern one they've done to this point. I like the recent BS one, but this one captures Yoda better. Same is true of the Hoth Luke. The Hoth Han is perfect, very excited by him. Finally they get to Leia and she looks great. Articulation is less and less a factor for me, but I appreciate it where it's necessary. One thing I'd like to see in these figures is the ability for them to hold a saber or gun with two hands. That being said, enjoying all these quite a bit.

I'd say from the pics this one seems more blue than brown.

It is definitely a dark blue.  Not brown at all. Remember they are striving for "Kenner nostaligia" and not accuracy on these figures. ;)

  That's cool and all but why did they just make a 6" Hoth Han too?  Seems like the new team might be  a little misguided :-\

Is it possible that they're taking the tooling for one and using it as a starting point for the other?  They just did the same thing with the Boushh Leia 6" and Black Series 3 3/4"....

So they can sell you a brown one later, of course.  $$$$$$
