Finally saw the Luke and Fett today at retail (Target).  I actually think the packaging looks pretty cool on these.  But for anyone who's opened them, what all is stuck in the left hand side of the package?  The figure's just over on the right side, and only takes up half the space.  Is there anything else of interest in there, or just a bunch of wasted space on the left side?

BTW, the Fett I saw had the corrected grey jumpsuit, and Luke looks like he's wearing lipstick...   ::)

I don't collect the 12" line anymore though, and especially not at $30, so I hesitantly passed on both of them.

I scored the Stormie at Target day before yesterday, which is fantastic because I was sick and tired of carrying around that extra $30  ::)

I have the grey siut Boba. My first 12" as I was never impressed enough by them but now it seems they have caught up on some accuracy. The Boba is excellent, one of my fav pieces now.

Holy bejebus!  

VHTF FIRST RUN BLUE JUMPSUIT MIMB

You've got to be kidding me.  I was turning my nose up to these things for weeks.  I was all the while holding out for the grey one.

Seems the box with the sticker in the upper left corner commands a few bucks!

Well, just as an FYI as to what I've been finding....

originally about a month or so ago, only the Luke and BLUE jumpsuit Fett were shipping, both with AND without the silver sticker in the corner.  Both Luke and Fet WITH the sticker seeming to hit in much fewer numbers.

Then a few weeks ago it appeared both the Fett AND Luke were shipping both without the stickers and this time the Fett is the GRAY version.  Just last week the Stormtrooper hit and all 3 were available all without the silver sticker, Fett still in the gray suit.

Thats what I'm finding in my neck of the woods-pretty much goes along with all the reports.

Finally found all of these today. Man, that Luke is a little strange looking.
