Nothing new on these for quite some time now, so I'm guessing this next wave of glasses (Han/Boba/Yoda) is cancelled?  Or perhaps it is another surprise coming (ala the Clone 4 packs).  Anything else new on these?  I know the figures leave a lot to be desired, but I'm always a fan of the glasses :).

Everything I hear on these says that they are delayed, but why?   I guess I'm not really sure of why they got delayed.

They haven't really even popped up anywhere in the rumor mill that I have seen... still is still a strong chance that they show up at Target at/around the Ep3 melee though ;)

I'm working on my loose figures list too.  After reading this thread, I understand that all of the figures were repacks, basically not even any repaints, except Leia's bikini.  But there was lots of talk about the Luke X-Wing Pilot, particularly his head.  Was he a repack too?

I don't have him in front of me, but I believe he was the kit-bash Snowspeeder Luke who was included with the PotJ Snowspeeder...

I'll double-check tonight and let ya know for sure.

SO, the next wave is out after all.  I really thought that these got lost in the shuffle so I am extremely happy to have them available again.

Nice to finally see them make it out, but very disappointed that they weren't in the OTC packaging that they should've been in.  I don't want my Han and Boba in ROTS (prequel) packaging, dammit!  >:(

Anyway, I guess since these are in ROTS packaging, we should continue the discussion over in Cup thread in the ROTS figure forum.  :-\

Which Boba Fett is that? Is it Saga Pit of Carkoon?

Yeah - it looks to be the same Fett that was released both for the Saga and OTC lines. Not a bad sculpt, but the quick-draw action takes away from the figure (IMHO)

When you have a quality figure like the VOTC Fett laying around, getting another one of these is a tough pill to swallow - but I do want the Fett cup!

Thanks Pete.

I'm not a big fan of Boba but the last one I have is the old, old POTF2 orange-card version, and it seems like I oughtta upgrade one of these days. ;) Maybe I'll get this one after I take care of higher-priority wants.

Perhaps Hasbro could release all glasses in a special pack, without any figure, for collectors who passed this offer.
