So, it looks like we've finally got our answer to this little "vintage-styled" figure enigma, ...

So, what are your predictions for the remaining 9 figures for this line?

ANH:
Luke
Han
Obi-Wan
Leia

ESB:
Yoda
Lando
Vader
Boba Fett

ROTJ:
Chewy
C-3PO
R2-D2
Stormtrooper

I just noticed my picks are identical to Mikey's in the OTC thread...  The only unfortunate exclusion here would be the Emperor...

Boy, maybe I deserve a prize if the exclusive Emperor figure winds up being a VOTC one.  12 for 12, plus the bonus round...   ;)   :P

Nothing is confirmed on that one yet :P

Hmmm...

vOTC Emperor is a possibility, but a long shot I'm sure.

And IF the Hyperspace IS a vOTC Emperor, I hope it's packaged like the rest, with the clamshell.  I'd look stupid next to the other 12 if it were packaged different!  Plus, the Clamshell might make it easier for SWS.com to ship them with out FUBARing it too much.

I guess we wait and see...

VOTC Wave 1 was out now here :)

The case break down is:

2x Leia
3x Han
3x Ben

Luke was cancelled.The retailer says he will be added in Wave 2.
US$15 each.

Not sure if the case break down is same as US but just quick note.

Pardon if its been posted elsewhere, but this is the first clean image of Leia I've seen yet (from EE's site):



A lot better than I had been expecting.

EDIT: Ugh, and reading the case ratios makes me a little annoyed:

Regular Asst:
2x Han Solo
3x Luke Skywalker
2x Obi-Wan Kenobi
1x Princess Leia

Alt Asst:
3x Han Solo
3x Obi-Wan Kenobi
2x Princess Leia

What's wrong with shipping even case ratios, Hasbro?  ::)
He's not canceled just not ready yet...seems like there are two cases for Series 1

Also note I've seen lots and lots of Han, Ben and Leia samples and relatively few Luke's I'm guessing he was the last to be produced...might have been a tooling or change in production issue

Hey Wai,

You get ahold of any of the VOTC figures yet?  THese are doozies that I've been waiting for here in the States and was wondering if you had a hands-on opinion of them you could give?

These are definitely shaping up to be my favs....

Because I have nothing better to do on a Sunday:


Everything looks better in OTC packaging, says me. This is how I'd like to see these guys released, and at the normal pricepoint.

Nice work Tydirium...those sure do look nice on the OTC cardbacks.  It would be really nice if they would release these this way.  Not that I don't like the vintage cardbacks, but they would probably sell quite a few more of these figures if they were packaged like this, at the normal pricepoint.  They look great though, again, nice work.

Indeed, that's a cool photoshop Tydirium, and I agree that I like those cards better.

I just hope Hasbro has the common sense to repackage them at some point like that.

What I'd actually really like is for them to pre-pose the figures in the packaging to show off the kickass articulation too.  Show just how fun the figure can be, and I bet more kids would cry for those figures than others in the toy aisle.

The packaging from the VOTC isn't great to me, but I do love the OTC basic cardback with the unique backgrounds.  Sweet stuff.

I see ActionHQ has the VOTC Han, Obi-Wan, and Leia in stock now and ready to ship (for $15.95 a piece).  Hopefully some of the other online stores (EE in particular) will be getting their shipments soon as well :)  I don't think I have personally looked forward to figures this much in quite some time, although I do wish they were a little cheaper.  But, they appear to be showing up...and perhaps the Luke is lagging behind in a different assortment since he isn't offered here either.

I read (while lurking at RS) that some people are getting "processing" or "pending" on their VOTC (1st wave) orders from places like EE and Kebco, has anyone here gotten that as well?  Hopefully these will start showing up/shipping soon.
