Yep.  My sentiments exactly.  This is supposed to be the definitive line, so why make the 'throwback' jersey first?  That one should be a NYCC or SDCC exclusive instead of Carbonite Han.

Is there a slit in the belly?  Kind of looks that way, but could be wrong.  This Tauntaun better smell as bad on the inside as on the outside.

This doesn't look as good as the Luke to me... something about it looks... under-detailed?

Not cut belly for the tauntaun.  The live tweeting from the session confirmed that.

Thanks for the heads-up, Nick.

Long live the blue coat and all you brown coats will get yours when they release him as a single. Wait for it.

Brown coat Han is probably going to be a con exclusive.  Or packaged with a 6" scale Imperial Probe Droid.

I think the Probe Droid would be absolutely AMAZING in the 6" scale.  It would be foolish for Hasbro to not pursue that one.

Really psyched to see this is on the way, even though it has been rumored/confirmed for a bit now...still nice to see it.  I can see why some people are bummed about the blue coat, but they could always to the brown coat as a regular release (or in another pack, as mentioned).  Kind of surprising though.  Han on Taun Taun is one of my favorite things about Star Wars, so I can't wait to get a hold of this.

Sure looks like they were planning for it though...  wonder why it got dropped?

This will be my favorite figure/set of all time if it gets delivered even half way like it shows in pictures. 

Hoth Han is my favorite OT version of Han, and this really looks good.  I also have nostalgia bias for the Blue Coat.
