On one hand I'm happy that I can save my money. I have no desire to own that black R2 even if there are small differences to the original...I didn't like it that much the first time around. To be honest, I wouldn't mind owning the Imperial flunky but I'd never pay more than $130 or so for it.

From here out I'll just get what I really like. There's a lot to like about this release. For me its the Vader, Leia, Antilles, Dignitary and the backdrop. They did an awesome job on those--if Captain Antilles was the chase we'd all be flipping our **** to get it. Just a little depressing that Medicom seems to be on hard times and/or throwing in the towel on this line...hope that isn't the case and we see more awesome SW kubs released in the future.

Ha, I got scared when I saw that picture of Tarkin above--thought he might've been the second chase for a second!

Yeah, looks like they played with it in the sandbox and scraped a decal off his chest before they took the picture. 

Maybe instinctoy got sent some kind of preproduction mock up by mistake?  :-\ :)

If it had the uniform details like the vintage figure, it would've made a nice vintage imperial commander, and the fact that they reused Veers' face would've make sense.

Would've made a great Death Star flunky like in the pic Symposium posted, except that even they have some "pleats" on their shirts, and they are not General Veers.

Not a bad fig imo, but kinda cheap and uninspired.

Nah, don't be concerned. It's been that way for months.

HLJ has a set number of pre-orders and once that allocation is sold out they put up that order stop. Pretty standard for them, it's just that SW stuff attracts more demand.

Cool, thanks! Haven't gone the route of getting a box before--looking forward to trying my luck at a chase.

If there was a way to switch the card artwork from what I'm sure will be from TPM to that of Cloud City, I'd be all over it.

If that's something you'd really be interested in, we could make it happen. Just sayin'.  ;)

I checked in on my preorder on hlj.com and the status of my box of 12 says "Order Stop." Anybody else preorder from them seeing this same message, or something different? Can't tell from the fine print if it means that my preorder got bumped or if that's just the standard status for items they haven't received yet.

To me he'll be the rude E-3PO, who insulted C-3PO on Cloud City. ("E chu ta!")       :)

I remember seeing that auction awhile ago. In small print it says "Could be one of the rare secret variant Boba Fetts shown below." (italics added by me)

I'm still missing the series 1 chase fetts as well as the L-Slop, the color prototype and the DX1. Out of those I'd most like to get a hold of the DX1 Fett--I like the ROTJ-style tan costume, plus that's the only DX chase I'm missing.

Those all look sweet, especially the Death Star one.

Got my Parco Gray-Haired Obi-Wan as well, though I haven't freed him from his plastic prison yet.  Not as different from the regular release as I had hoped, but a must have for me.  This is one of my favorite Kenner vintage variations.



This was a must-have for me too, but I did have a minor gripe: For some reason, they used a shade of grey for the hair that's almost the exact value/tone as his skin color. It makes his facial hair and eyebrows invisible! They accurately show this on the card art Ben, so I guess it's intentional. What's odd is that the whites of the figures eyes are also grey, leading me to believe that they haphazardly switched white to grey on some template and forgot about the eyes  ::).

Picked up a Holiday Special Fett, the only non-chase/ limited kub I was missing. Since I bought the Droids and vintage versions before my complete-ist aspirations set in, I had to get the rest of the Fett's piecemeal. It was pretty fun to track them all down from far-flung locations, but I shudder to think how much I could've saved if I had just bought the set.   ::)
