potf2.com has just confirmed the tauntaun will have a split belly feature.  Here's hoping it comes with lots of squishy entrails and guts. ;)

That is indeed GREAT news.  It's very nice to see that Hasbro is actually putting out the Tauntaun that we expected they should make when they originally announced that the new Hoth Han would have the lightsaber slashing action feature.  Would've stuck out like a sore thumb to not have the split belly Tauntaun for Han to have his way with, when he's finally got the ability to get medevil on it's @$$ with a lightsaber!

Also worth mentioning is that Luke is very bowlegged, and indeed posed (only) to ride his Tauntaun here.  Don't try putting him elsewhere in any Hoth dioramas, unless you've got a custom Rebel toilet nearby for him!   8)

I'm just glad to see Hasbro putting the thought into making the various pieces/sets/figures all tie together in a cohesive manner like this (Han + Tauntaun).  That's very encouraging that they're seeing a "bigger picture" now...

I wish they would just release them all at the same time, like they did with the Target accessory sets.

They have started to show up on ebay, but only the Imperial Forces set thus far.

I haven't seen these anywhere around Chicago, but then again I haven't seen anything new since November.

That's probably because they haven't been released domestically yet!  ;)

There's some of the typical early overseas pieces just now hitting eBay in the last week or so, so expect these to start hitting the States in about 3-4 weeks.  I like getting the extra accessories in these, but can do without some of the rehashes included herein, especially when they were very easy to find the first time around.  Zuckass was VHTF the first time around and definitely should've been in the Bounty Hunter set.   :(

I think 3-4 weeks in the US is too long.  The first (BH) set is to arrive at TRU in Canada in May.  It's May, they ain't here, but should be out for you folks any day.  

Not sure if you'll see the staggered release like Canada will or not.

Does that mean they'll ever make it to the Chicagoland area?  Ummm, no!    :P
