The possible "limited edition" status of this line is utter BS.
I just complained about this in the TF thread too, and this one little issue has me royally pissed off, to tell you the truth. If these ARE Limited (In that they don't release these figures again on the standard line's cards), then Hasbro's done nothing but to make one big advancement to the modern line take about 2 HUGE steps backward.
Like I said at Galactic Hunter, can anyone say "Playmates Star Trek:TNG" with me?
MisterPL was giving me some hope that these super articulated sculpts will be reused, and I truly hope he's correct, but Hasbro's limiting things is a BAD sign overall. Let us all hope for the best of course.
I was hoping the SA treatment wouldn't even end with these 12, and that we may see it become more widespread across the line as a whole. I still hope for this. For a Star Wars toy line that really "wows" you with every new figure.
I'm very curious to see/hear more news from Hasbro about all of this, nonetheless. They've definitely got my attention right now.
I just hope I'm able to get plenty of these figures as I want them not only for my collection but customizing too. They're just so great looking. The Han is, as far as I can tell, perfect.
As for a 2nd Han, I almost wouldn't mind an apology Endor Han over an Emperor. I see your point about an Emperor though too Matt, and would love both honestly.
Han though, that's a figure that really could stand the soft goods treatment I think, and super articulation given his role at Endor.
