If the street date is June here, I'd guess end of April we'll start seeing finals, everything looks great, almost enough to make me consider keeping a set of the regular OTC on the cards too!

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?  ::)

It's bad enough they're charging ten bucks and making these somewhat limited, they have to screw with the assortments too?  What point is there in making Leia even harder to find?  

So glad I'm not collecting these.

This is disappointing, as far as hearing about the case packing.  I was really hoping that they would just be evenly packed all the way across the line.  The "limited" garbage really annoys me too, all the figure we have seen pics of from this line so far look amazing....and many, many people would want them...why not just slap them on OTC cards at the regular price point?  I think they'd sell like hot cakes.  I can't really think of many pegwarmers in this line, if they were distributed correctly.

Yeah, seriously about the case ratios...  Leave it to  Hasbro to do everything within their power to F up these figure's release.  

Ultimately they'll claim it's the retailer's fault somehow, but my god what are they thinking on these cases?  She's not really "short-packed", but she's not gonna be even with the boys.  And with the word these aren't reshipping, that's a BAD thing.  :(

Hopefully the "alternate" casepack will make its way out in abundance and help a little. It's a shame if she's tough to find, because that's turning out the be one of the better figures.

I have this stinking notion that Luke is going to pegwarm. Bigtime.  :-\

From what we can see, it looks to be just as great as the rest of the VOTC we've seen so far.  It is hard to tell for sure, but it looks like SA Clonetrooper-type articulation, and the sculpt looks nice as well.  I'm actually surprised we haven't seen pictures of wave 3 yet, I'm looking forward to seeing what they do with Chewie, R2, and Boba as well.  Thanks for the pic Scott.

Looks like there's a little bigger picture at SSG, wasn't sure if I could post it here or not though...you can get to it through their front page though.

Looks like there are ball shoulders and elbows on the Stormtrooper

Yoda looks like he has 2 legs

Vader appears to have a metal chain

Thanks for the pic Scott, the Stormtrooper really looks amazing.  I still like that Yoda, this picture makes it look even better than the last one I think.  Metal chain on Vader would be pretty cool too.  Even further examples of why these figures shouldn't be limited....especially the Stormtrooper.  Who's not going to want tons of those guys if they are made like the SA Clone was?  Not that the commtech one is a bad figure, but this one looks like it could be even better.

I can only hope they do Army builder packs of that Stormie...

It's just one picture, but MAN, does he look good.

It certainly looks like the stormie is the OT equal to the SA Clone. What a relief. Getting enough of these is going to be costly, if they can be found in number at all.

I can't get over Yoda. I'm not a fan of soft goods, and I'm actually shocked at how well they've been done on him. It also looks like he has shoulder ballsocket articulation. I'm amazed.
