I haven't seen pics yet, but thought I'd start up a thread so we have one when pics surface...

They only had pictures of the box art.  I'd like to see what Han in Carbonite they use.

Glad people finally get this since I think it's been long desired. :)  Sweet they went Vinty with it.  Seems to me they're really trying to get as much out in Vinty boxes as possible...  wrapping it up nice and tidy?

By my eyes, I'm betting he's a repaint of the last Carbo Han block which was pretty slick, and never was painted solid.  Just melty.

Very happy to see this version of Slave I offered at last.  And I've REALLY, REALLY been wanting a new Han Solo in Carbonite for years.  The POTF2 one just didn't suffice. 

Based on the imagery from the showroom, I guess that none of the exclusives were on hand to be photographed.  The boxed photo of Slave I looks pretty cool, but I'd like to see more of it.  AND the Carbonite block.

Petty nitpick: they couldn't even get those Bespin Guards' hats to look right for the box photo. In fact, Lobot and Fett appear bewildered by them.

So, is it confirmed that this is the CW repaint?

You can see some telltale indications that this is a repaint of the CW Slave I.  Notably the hinge on the fuselage for the hatch to the cargo hold.  And in the cockpit you'll see the seatbacks for three seats:  1 for the pilot, and 2 for passengers.  Those features are all unique to the SOTDS Slave I that was a TRU exclusive.

Awesome they are using the large CW version.  I'll buy it for sure now.

So glad we're getting this, one of my most anticipated items of the year.  I have the earlier CW version, and it is pretty amazing, but the original Fett's version is the one I think most of us have always wanted.  It will be interesting to see how things go with Amazon getting in the game.  I order from there a lot, and I guess a lot of the vintage collection figures were easy to get there, so I hope this isn't a problem availability-wise.  Man, those vintage boxes are pretty :).
