Wow, where did this come from?
At least people can now stop complaining that there are no
kubricks coming from Medicom
I can deal with the re-release. It's obviously it's part of their m.o now and isn't the line better alive (even if on life support) than dead. Medicom's been doing the repaint thing for years, the 5 packs don't exist anymore and it's now down to the 2 packs ie Han/Luke, R2/3PO, Wicket/Paploo.
edit: I don't own the first version so I had to remind myself just how similar or different they are from each other.
Not just the mouth but the eyes and probably a change in robes. Was the original's robes cloth or paper like, it's hard to tell? It might just be the fact that they're prototypes and not the final product.
