I bet I'd feel a heck of a lot different if I had a more pristine vintage collection. A majority of my vintage figures are in pretty great shape, but there are some faded figures (namely Blue Sanggletooth and the ANH Leia and Stormtrooper,) and a missing accessory or two (namely a black Imperial Gunner Blaster and maybe a the proper black Luke Stormtrooper blaster) and I haven't found justification to replace just yet since they aren't cheep. Only Vintage figure I don't own is a Vinyl caped Jawa.

Went up at Dorkside as well. Had to jump on it. $40 seems reasonable too. So glad they re-did this!

Will probably pick up a 2nd one after this is released.

If it's articulation and assembly that really drives up Hasbro's costs, it might be in their interests to start producing more "display wall" playsets like this that are largely a hunk of detailed plastic without all that much production assembly.

Was thinking the same thing. Tantive IV corridors, Imperial computer rooms, lots to be done.

I think there were either 6 or 8 Gamorrean Guards in the palace.  I'm not sure about the Sail barge.

Without evidence to back it up, I thought I read somewhere that there were only 4 Gamorrean Guard outfits made for ROTJ.

Neat. They look great. Gonna be tough to pass on these.

Why did they give WalMart more exclusives after how badly they handled the Rey and Mimban Stormtrooper AND the Black Series before TVC came back?!?!?!

There are some mysteries in life we'll never know the answer to.

What happened to Jimmy Hoffa?

Can we break the light barrier?

Who were the druids? And what were they doing?

This is one of those mysteries.

This is funny because I still have my original Escape from Death Star board game. Like this set.

I'm a bit taken aback by the "one new figure" thing. For some reason, I though Hasbro was past that gimmick. At least we get to knock off one more Skiff guard!

Again, Walmart.  >:(

Like having the vintage carded figure though.

Great surprise! Sucks that it's Walmart, though.

Wondering if the set should include a thawed out Carbonite slab? Kinda looks like the thawed one is included with the carded Han. Hard to tell for sure.

Placed my pre-order. Will be nice to round off my Gamorreans to an even 4.

Disconcerting that the pre-orders sold out so quickly. I was working and never even had a shot. I can't imagine it not being gettable.

Looks fantastic though! Can't wait to have one or two!

Missing TRU already. Don't know where me and my biddies are going to camp out.

Well, the pre-orders at Target.com are already pre-sold out, so there's definite interest.

They can re-organize and pretty-up/modernize the site all they want. If they don't offer product we want at a reasonable deal, then what's the point? Not poo-pooing the new site yet, but I really don't see a difference beyond cosmetic changes. The product is still limited. No Vintage wave 2&3 and what happened to the 5 POA figures?
