Ooohh.

Aaahhh.

I MUST OWN THESE.

Jeff

ps.
From Yoda's card-back, it appears that C-3PO is NOT the removable limbs version... nice to see the ESB logo SW card though!

That Darth Vader cardback is sweet. It's like I'm looking back in time!  A long time ago...  ;)

I agree Jeff, these just continue to be my absolute favorite Star Wars figures.  I really hope that these aren't as impossible to find in the stores as was originally thought.

You're right! Way to go Hasbro!

Let's hope the Episode III stuff is this good!

EDIT: Just scored a VOTC Han Solo for 11.95 plus shipping on Ebay.

Wow, that Vader looks nice and tall. Good catch on the 2 hilts. That's excellent news indeed.

Uh...  they've Photoshopped the original Hasbro shots onto their green background. Granted, they are higher res, but why all the smoke and mirrors to make it feel exclusive to GH?

So has the release information of the OTC line sparked anyone's interest, besides Tydirium, to dive into the vintage line?  If not carded, trying to piece a loose collection of 100 together?  

I am just curious.

The OTC is just what I dont need in my life right now.  The last thing I need to do is take the time to drive around to Targets in Arizona to find these.  

Since I don't have and could never justify spending the moolah on 12 backs, this is oh so tempting.  I must refrain :o!

JediMac, where are you, I want 1st dibbs on your extras!

-EDIT-

I got it...I will just collect these:

"Vintage OTC"
June-September 2004

A New Hope
Luke Skywalker
Han Solo
Obi-Wan Kenobi
Princess Leia

Empire Strikes Back
Darth Vader
Yoda
Lando Calrissian
C-3PO

Return of the Jedi
R2-D2
Boba Fett
Stormtrooper
Chewbacca

...yeah right!

This is rhetorical, right?  ;)
