Man, I was so impressed with the Hasbro OTC 12" Stormtrooper (I was comparing it to the Collector's Series 12" Stormtrooper), but after seeing that comparo shot above, I can hardly believe it!  I still like my OTC Stormie, but that other Stormtrooper is beyond incredible!  :o
If I wasn't planning on picking up the Gentle Giant Speeder Bike w/Scout, I would definitely purchase that Stormie!
The scariest thing that I've ever seen,
Is the terrible AT-AT walking machine.
It's as big as a house on walking legs,
and whatever it steps on it crushes like eggs.

I'm sure Boba Fett's gonna be next up for the RAH line here, so that's going to make it even more difficult to refrain from taking the bait...  :-\

Man, tell me about it.  A Medicom Fett would definitely kick ass.  Did you break down and buy the Vader and/or Stormie yet?

I watched Empire Strikes Back and Return of the Jedi while on alert and I think those shoulder pieces are fairly accurate on the Medicom Stormtrooper.  :)
Peacekeeper, when it absolutely, positively has to be nuked in 30 minutes or less.  Or the next nuke's free!

Yowza!

Any 12" figure that looks this good and poses this well, you gotta love it.



Thanks for heads up, sithbaker - I had to mention this on the front page.   8)

The pic that has just his chest & head, you could almost pass for an
actor in armor. This thing looks AMAZING!
Can`t wait for this sucker to come out. I`m guessing November maybe.

Would someone please make these things go away...?  Please?

God, they're killin' me with this brilliance.  But there's just no way I can allow myself to get sucked into this line, even if it's just to pick up a Vader, Stormie, and (future) Boba.  I sure wish I could though.  These things are really amazing...

Thanks for the pix, Adam!  8)

They do look awesome. I saw Luke at Toy Fair, and few other RAH (like the MGS ones), they all look amazing. They are making a Batman too...

The problem with America is stupidity I'm not saying there should be a capital punishment for stupidity, but why don't we just take the safety labels off of everything and let the problem solve itself

I am considering it. I`ll have to see where my wallet stands after series 5 kubs though...
I would love about 10 of them though!

These run anywhere from 160 to 200 bucks, depending where you order.
A lot of the overseas online shops are cheaper, but then you get killed with
shipping.
I know Toy Tokyo in NY had the Vader up for pre-order, as did Ningyoushi.com.
Toy Tokyo had the Jedi Luke at Toy Fair showing it off.
