VOTC 12": Fett, Stormtrooper & Luke
« on: July 15, 2004, 04:39 AM »
So jjks stumbled upon the new VOTC 12" figures tonight at K-Mart ($30 each), finding a case of 3 Fetts and 3 Lukes, but unfortunately no Stormtroopers.  Looks like Luke's wearing lipstick, and Boba's still got that lame BLUE jumpsuit (which was supposedly being changed to the correct grey).  Anyway, here's the pic Jamie sent along.



Better get those huntin' shoes on 12" collectors.  Finally something new out there!

Whoa, at $30. a pop, these are going to be close to $45. Canadian.

That jumpsuit sure does look blue.

I do like the packaging.

Maybe there's two versions?   ???

The picture of 12" Fett's outfit over at Galactic Hunter looks grey.

Early and late releases?  Maybe Hasbro caught the error after enough complaints arose, but they still had a large number produced of the blue suit?  Just like the POK Saga FEtt?  Oh-oh.

And, of course, MY kmart still has jack-****.  I ordered a case from EE anyways but I am way too impatient to wait (besides I need three of each this time).

Now, to start pestering the family connections and see what can be done. :)

PS:  I can't read the UPC number off of the slip, can you post it Jaime??
(They really hate me when I bring in UPC numbers  ;) ).

The packaging style of days gone by intermixed with the new dolls is disheartening… I mean, if you’re going in, you better go full throttle- go old skool or don’t go at all.

Joints at the knee look a little weird, almost like the plastic is really, really soft and deforms.  Otherwise it looks ok.  I think I'll be passing on this fellow.  Great box, but all my 12" stuff is and shall remain loose.

Hasbro really can do excellent work when they want to. I find it hard to believe these VOTC 12"ers come from the same company that crapped out the 12" AOTC Padme and Zam Wesell.

I've been bidding on them, just not going overboard so I know I won't win one but 12" dolls are the bane of my collection.  I like them more than my props.  I'm not sure if the order I have with EE will get me the ugly blue or the new grey so I am stuck with ebay at the moment.  It's funny though, as no one REALLY knows if there was a production change that makes one more rare than the others (at least I didn't catch that newsflash at Hasbro.com  :P ).

But, if anyone DOES come across an ugly blue one and would like to clear their store shelf, feel free to pm me :).
