From the EE site:
Star Wars - Post Original Trilogy Collection 3 3/4 inch Basic Action Figure Assortment Wave 2. Includes all-new vintage-style packaging that resembles the original line of Kenner Star Wars action figures. These are NOT in Original Trilogy Collection packaging. All figures are in new "Post" Original Trilogy Collection packaging. Contains 12 individually packaged action figures including 2x Feltipern Trevagg (NEW), 2x Myo (NEW), 2x Dannik Jerriko (NEW), 1x Sandtrooper - Tatooine Search (Older figure, slightly repainted, new packaging), 1x Stormtrooper - Death Star Attack (Same figure as OTC #16, but with new packaging), 1x Scout Trooper - Endor Raid (Same figure as OTC #11, but with new packaging), 1x Han Solo - Mos Eisley Escape (Same figure as OTC #7, but with new packaging), 1x Chewbacca - Hoth Escape (Same figure as OTC #8, but with new packaging), and 1x Yoda - Dagobah Training (Same figure as OTC #2, but with new packaging). (Subject to change).
So... they can afford to crank out new carded versions for 2005 (we, the carded collectors, salute you Hasbro
) but they are still giving us re-hashed re-hashes??? If you are going to take the time to draw up new cards and everything, why not at least pick "new" older figures to rehash?
I'd understand if they were straight re-releases of the OTC versions, and I even understand Yoda because he's relatively new figure, BUT giving us yet ANOTHER version of that dang Cantina Han Solo blows
Would it have been SOOOOOO hard to do Bespin Arrival Han Solo? Or how about Hoth Escape Han to go with Hoth Escape Chewie! Cantina Han is now hands down the winner of the re-release contest:
1) - Commtech
2) - 2004 Saga "gold stripe card"
3) - 2004 Hall of Fame
4) - OTC
5) - Wal-Mart C-3PO Carry Case
6) - Sam's Club Falcon
7) - 2005 Star Wars card
8?) - Target Figure w/Cup wave 2
Yet another missed opportunity. I'd have gone with:
1x Han Solo -
Mos Eisley Escape
Bespin Arrival (using the PotJ Bespin Han)
1x Chewbacca -
Bespin Escape (using Saga Cloud City Chewie)
At least Hasbro kinda seems to be listening by getting some army builders in this case...
