I feel like this would look great with even just a little less mud.

I'm technologically stuck in the 90's. Don't have an on-line picture account.  :-\

Might I suggest then using itís a quick and easy way to upload photos that you can then share on these forums. They even give you the Forum BBCode to use in your post. I use it often nowadays since my ISP took away web hosting

Thanks gents it was a fun quick project to do, I highly recommend it to everyone. and thanks to the 50% off clearance, all my spare VOTC Hans will get this treatment.

Decided to go ahead and put this awesome new head on a VOTC Han. Just needed to match the paint on the hands and chest as closely as possible. Think it came out very well...

Saw the TRU C-3PO/R2 set at Ross today for $6.99. A good option to check for those who donít have and want this set

Though Star Wars started in the 70s, I have always considered it an 80s line. But I can also see it where it would not be considered an 80s line when compared to those other 3. TMNT is also definitely an 80s line.

Just left my local Target and asked someone to run the assortment DPCI (087-16-8221). Not only did they not have any in stock and none of the other stores were listed as having any in stock, but the DPCI has been marked in their system as discontinued. If that is accurate across the nation, then it is possible that Target has ran thru their allotment and there will be no more until they hit the fan channel outlets later this year. This would line up with something I noticed last night that searching ďStar Wars retro collection ď on the Target app no longer shows these figures. I know folks are still finding them in store, but I have a feeling that this is the end of it for now.

Does anyone know when this is supposed to make it to shelves, presuming it ever does?

This definitely improved my interest in the Stormtrooper Han. I had ordered 2 to hedge my bets on the helmet deco. I might just keep the 2nd one now.

After being disappointed that they didnít use the new Stormtrooper body for this figure, i only picked up one. And that was primarily for the helmet and the head. I had intended to put the head on a VOTC ANH Han, but the skin tones donít match and I donít feel like painting the ANH Han. So the next best thing was to swap heads with TVC Bespin Han - that one HS an atrocious face sculpt. Now this figure is much much better...

The head peg needed some modifying to get the head to fit, but totally worth the effort.

The reports circulating today about a Fatherís Day display with all 4 exclusives  in the menís clothing section are accurate. I got my set of Retro figures today in such a section and saw the Tarkin, TVC, and TBS sets as well. Also some non-SW video games as well.

Well I got a replacement Jabba in the mail today and he is not more eye pleasing. As you can see, not only does the replacement have less weathering/detailing than my first one, he has a big paint blemish above his mouth and to the side of the left nostril. Plus damaged paint and poor application elsewhere. I am not happy with how this turned out, but also donít think going to Hasbro is beneficial to anyone. Sigh, FML as the kids say...

All 4 stores around me have a case in the back but wonít pulll then out due to the 5/12 street date. So a big strike out there. The board game with Tarkin though is now available on so I got that ordered and done.

I would say thatís Cap showing that he was worthy was my favorite part of the film.

You talking about the girl squad?  Or something else?

Yep, the women. Just imagining the rage some people felt while watching that makes me chuckle

I just saw Endgame yesterday and I had the same reaction. That was a big FU to all of the misogynistic ******** out there in the world. I loved the scene.

I did find the movie to be profoundly sad as for me there were many tear inducing moments.

An update on my conversation with Hasbro customer support about my Jabba. While I was at Celebration, they sent me a message saying they could exchange my Jabba for a new one. So they provided a pre-paid postage label and today I was able to get the Hutt packed up and shipped back to them. Interestingly enough, the label had their Pawtucket main office as the delivery address. So hopefully, that will get this moving and I receive a more pleasant to the eye crime lord.
