Screw the stormtrooper, look at that Riddick figure!  Awesome.  ;)

That stormtrooper is the nuts.  I want as many as I can get.  Hell Hasbro, package them in baggies for all I care.  I'd still buy lots.

I know this will eventually be repacked, but this may be one I buy.  If I ever find it.

The latest ToyFare has some nice pics of the ESB Wave.  Vader looks a little bulky IMO and Lando's cape is a tad bit funky.  Still trying to search for articulation points on 3PO and I'm just not seeing them.  Maybe in his shoulders but his knees do not look articulated and he for sure is not shiny for some odd reason
 
Yoda though is droolworthy!

Uh...

Sorry about that.  The sheer joy I felt swelled up my head and I musta passed out for a minute.

These Premium/Vintage OTC (aka vOTC) are a thing of beauty.

I am glad that the basic OTC sucks, because instead of buying all those repacks, I'll be saving up the cash to shell out for 2x each of these 12 masterpieces.  I'd much rather spend $240 to get 24 of these figures than $240 on 48 recarded/rehashed figures.

Tommorw is Han's turn!

I don't like that Orignal Trilogy Collection thing at the front of the card.

That's on the clamshell that's holding the card, and not the card itself.

Wish the figure bubbles (not the clamshell) were more vintage esque. Still pretty nice though. I'll probably end up removing one set from the clamshells and putting them in acrylic cases. It'd kill the "potential value", but I could give a crap. I think it'd look a lot nicer

Hey, nifty. I like how those turned out.  :)

And I'll be, the Obi-Wan cloth robes actually look GOOD.

Oh. Duh, me.

I'm gonna scream like a schoolgirl on helium when I see these at retail. I just know it. :D

Please don't.  It's unbecoming.  Although I admit it's rather nifty that we won't have to buy Star Cases for these.

You can say that again Jeff...  I'm jonesin' for 2 sets of these as well, and more of at least some of them...  Even at $10 they're the best figures ever for this line.

I hope, once again, that these see a wider release for cheaper prices later down the line.  I also hope this opens some doors (and eyes) that these kinds of figures are doable in this scale and with normal "standard" packaging they're doable for fair prices.

Give me more figures like these please.  They're damn near perfect IMO.

The two major gripes I've had so far is Lando's cape and elbows and 3PO's mystery articulation

3PO might clear up when we get some better shots.  Lando is sketchy

Who else is dreaming of a Gadgeted galore R2-D2 with all of the bells and whistles??? (Lightsaber door, periscope, sensorscope, "arms", datalink etc etc)
