I hope some of those rumors pan out...

A Cantina #2 set with Hem Dazon, Bom Vimadin, and Feltipern Trevagg would go a LOOOOONG way towards making up for all the rest of the OTC re-hashes.

It'd be like my own little personal apology letter from HAsbro... "Sorry Mr. ticked-off long time collector.  Here's an OT Cantina scene 3-pack to make amends"  :)

I'd love to see just retooled things with new heads/hands sometimes.  Not even brand new or entirely accurate, but just filler for a Cantina diorama.

As it stands, Jesus, some Indiana Jones guys, XD guys, and EU figures are stand-ins in my cantina. :(

Anyway, I for one am pleased with the 3-pack coming, though it coulda been cooler had they redone some things...

-Evazan's arms coulda used a redo, or at least new poseable hands so they could pack in the realistic version of his blaster that Bo Shek had.  A holster on his hip woulda been nice too then.

-Wuher's cool, even if his hand's gaping...  Maybe he's gonna bitch-slap someone?

-Ktik I'm just happy about period...  That's a weird, obscure character.

A "new" Cantina set's not entirely out of the question I think, but unlikely I suppose.  :(  Still I'd love to see some redone figures at some point...  Hell, I'd even take a set with a VOTC Obi packed in. :)

You know, the thought of a repaint set with a "live" Obi-Wan and a blue Snaggletooth would be pretty nifty, all things rehash considered.

My only real problem with this first set is Evazan, who I still think deserves better treatment as a figure too. This one's a big improvement regardless.

Now where's my U-bar?

K-MART?!?!?! WTF? All of the K-Marts around here closed years ago! There aren't any within an hour-and-a-half drive from here! Looks like I'll be either skipping these, or resorting to eBay... :( >:(

Or making a friend or two with KM's to help ya Diddly!  Don't give up hope.

I'm going to ATTEMPT to get an extra set or two for people, and I'm sure everyone else who can will.  KM's still a powerhouse here (Well, maybe not a powerhouse, but there's closer KM's to me than WM's or Target stores).

I'll see what I can do for people, as I'm sure others will as well.

Notice the Set 1 on the package, Set 2 at one time was rumored to be Obi-Wan, Ponda Baba and Blue Snag...hmmmmmm

Maybe a Spirit Obi Repainted?  Ponda and Blue Snags don't interest me too much

A modern blue Snaggletooth.  I never thought I'd live to see the day.  Thank the maker for Hyperspace!

Yep, a blue Zutton, rehashed Cantina Bar Set Ponda Baba, and rehashed Freeze Frame Obi-Wan. 3 more straight bar sets, no U part. Basically 24.99 for a little blue alien.

I was fortunate enough to have Colman looking over my shoulder as I opened the image for the first time. Priceless. Be on the lookout for D-FENS at ComiCon, I don't think he's too happy about this.  ;)

Thought I'd go ahead and post this here...



I actually like this one... kinda.

Blue Snaggletooth fits in well with the vintage line theme.  Ben = eh, but I don't mind that one.  Walrus man = ugh.

I hope that K-Mart doens't charge too much for these, but I thnk they are gonna end up around $27 :(

What a piece of ****. Yet another good idea executed badly.
