That Han sucks, though, plain and simple. VERY scene specific. So scene specific that he wouldn't even look right without the base he comes with.
That's one figure I could do without on the pegs... Bad from top to bottom.
On the issue of R2, while he was good at the time, the Bar2-D2 figure is invariably superior in every way. Deco, sculpt, etc... Even doesn't have the restraining bolt the R2 w/holo leia has. I'm just as content not to see it re-released.
My gripe is Motti, the only figure on that list that DID ship in limited quantities (R2 w/holo leia did float out at clearance prices in good #'s, and the Han Stormie was in a pack that I hear most areas had in plentiful form). Motti figures never really saw clearance, and I'd wager at the genuine lack of these in people's collections, coupled with the fact they didn't see clearance really, makes Motti a legitimately tough to find figure. Rare, I would debate, since he's cheap enough on Ebay (Like $10 or so), but tough to get rings true.
Even the scanner tech saw clearance here, but mostly because the Wedge set clogged the shelf space...
Motti though, he was one I never personally saw ANYWHERE and was just thankful to get 3 in a case I ordered. I'd buy some more for custom fodder too, but with Ozzel coming I don't know how many more I'd buy of Motti, ya know?
Honestly, not a single choice on that poll was thrilling to me, but I'm not a proponent or champion for repacks galore. My stores are glutting up with these assinine repacks, and no "newb" collectors appear to be picking them up in droves.
Call me selfish, I don't care, but to me if you can't go to Ebay then you should probably just have to suck up doing without the figure... I think repacks, as Hasbro's doing now, should be shipped in relatively limited quantities.
Ultimate figures, and GOOD (stressing the term, "good") army builder figures are the only repacks I really see as legitimately good ideas. SA Clones, as an example of the best of both examples, would be a hot item at retail once again... Re-releasing the Red Clone, however, would not.
