I went to TRU looking for the Hoth pack... no such luck... I'll be looking for that thing, it's awesome - great selection of figures considering the only one Ive got is the Chewie.

Hoth 4-pack Leia paint error?
« Reply #31 on: September 11, 2003, 05:37 PM »
I just picked this up a few minutes ago.  After opening, I noticed that the Leia had two different painted arms.  Anyone else have one like this?

For those of you that have not opened and are planning.  Be careful with the Tauntaun intestines.  They are very soft and are attached to a plastic band.  I ended up tearing mine, not realizing how tight the band was attached.   >:(

I guess mine IS that way!  I thought it was just the lighting in the picture I took of it, but they are colored differently.

As far as Leia's face/hand color goes... I think it sucks!  The rest of her looks pretty good though.

HAHAHA!!! Told you so! :-*

*Ahem*

Actually, you could probably just paint over all of the cruddy parts. I have a feeling that's what all the customizers are going to do. :)

Has anyone found this Hoth pack with the Taun Taun with an unbroken horn?
A picture of it can be seen over at RS.

I have picked up a total of two of these... one for me and one for a good buddy of mine.  Neither one of them have an unbroken horn.   :(

So you're saying BOTH of yours came with the broken horn version of the Tauntaun Chris?  That was how the original (early prototype) pictures appeared, but it looks like Hasbro fixed the mistake and is now shipping the correct (Han's) full horned Tauntaun.  GH mentioned this, and made it sound like they might all be this way.  Now I'm very curious to see if both of the horn variations are showing up at retail...

What has everyone else found so far?

I found the Hoth set yesterday and picked it up.  My Tauntaun came with a broken horn (Luke's Tauntaun).  I was a little disappointed with the split-belly feature, being that the plastic is kinda hard and closes up to its original position right away.  It's hard to fit a figure in the belly, let alone the delicate guts.  The Leia fig sucks, but the others are alright (especially the droid).  It's definitely the best set out of the three (versus Imperial Forces & Bounty Hunters).    
Binders full of astromechs...

Matt, both of my Hoth 4-packs have the broken horn on them.  I thought that was the normal version, with the full horn being the variation.

It's a shame how pitiful the Leia figure is... two different colored arms and the ultra-tanned face/hands.  It's a shame and embarassment on Hasbro's part.  Everything else in the set is pretty cool though.

Mine has the broken horn.  The 10 at my local TRU are as well.

Mine also has a Broken horn, I'm not going to buy another one either, great set for the money :-*

I agree with FG on the belly feature, could have been softer to recreate the scene better but not a huge deal

The one I got today from Amazon.com has the broken horn.  Cool set though and my Leia isn't too bad.  I guess I got a better paint job than others.

I also got my set from Amazon yesterday, and my Tauntaun had the broken horn as well.  This is the only one of these packs I've picked up so far, but I think it is worth the money.  I didn't have a Tauntaun in my collection, so that was enough for me, and the figures are pretty good too.  My Leia doesn't look too bad either, paint doesn't seem to be too bad at least.
