Not much you can do with the boots Scott, as there's really no female/small framed figure with legs that would look right. That'd be a sculpting job.
I've always just figured "Hasbro will get to it" on stuff like that.
I still like the new Bespin one fine... I saw the OTC one and really, I hate that figure. I like the paint on the coat though. That was slick. Stuff like that I'm happy to retire.
OTC really is a line of greatness though. POTC too. That whole "background on the card" line was pretty outstanding. Probably one of the more overlooked lines. Not a everything was great (repaints sucked) but figures also cost 50% less then. And I bought 2 DSG's and 2 AT-AT Drivers this weekend and they're grand. I love that AT-AT Driver so much more than the one with the (albeit cool and unique) Clone head under the bucket.
