Well, I've already made the comment in several other threads that I wouldn't mind if Hasbro recarded every OT figure they ever made into this new OTC designed card that we've seen with the commtech Han, and I'd still buy 'em all again. That said, they appear to have a pretty good start on that idea already... So what does everyone think of all the recarded rehashes that are on the way for the OTC line? Some of these figures will be appearing on their 3rd or 4th different cardback now... Yikes.
I copied this list from Scott, so hopefully it's got everything covered here. Looks like at least 14 rehashes so far, in addition to the 7 figures from the Dagobah and Bespin waves:
[ ] - #04/05 - Luke Skywalker - POTJ X-Wing
[ ] - #04/06 - Luke Skywalker - Saga Jabba's Palace
[ ] - #04/07 - Han Solo - CommTECH Cantina
[ ] - #04/08 - Chewbacca - POTJ Mechanic
[ ] - #04/09 - Princess Leia - POTF2 New Likeness
[ ] - #04/10 - Darth Vader - Saga Throne Room Duel
[ ] - #04/11 - Scout Trooper- POTJ
[ ] - #04/12 - R2-D2- Saga HOF Version
[ ] - #04/13 - C-3PO - MMC Version
[ ] - #04/14 - Boba Fett - Saga Pit of Carkoon
[ ] - #04/15 - Obi-Wan - POTJ Version
[ ] - #04/16 - Stormtrooper- CommTECH
[ ] - #04/17 - Wicket- POTF2
[ ] - #04/21 - TIE Fighter Pilot
Well, bring it on! So, is it safe to assume only the carded completists are going to be going after these rehashes?
Of course, you can add the 3 rehash vehicles into the mix as well - Millenium Falcon, X-Wing, and Tie Fighter.
Fortunately, since the rest of Hasbro's line this year is so amazing, I don't think most people will mind the plethora of rehashes coming. As long as they keep up with the cool appropriate backdrop behind each figure, I'll be first in line to add 'em to my collection!
