I hope the Slave 1 is the larger sculpt otherwise I will pass.  I do want the other vintage ships and like the Kmart exclusives.

Plus they're either taking them when others pass or working with hasbro on developing them.

Well, I think Jesse and I are all done updating the Toy Fair 2013 Image Database with the pictures from the Hasbro showroom, as well as the Hasbro press images for the 2013 Star Wars products shown today (almost 300 pics total). 

Just wanted to drop another big THANKS to P-Siddy for helping us with coverage of the Hasbro Fan Media event again this year. 

Thanks again for braving the cold and snow to trek downtown for the event! :)

So which retailer has the Vader evolution 4-pack?  Was that Target as well?
