Bom Vimdim and Dr. Evazan look sweet! And so does Logray!

If only Palisades had gotten their 4" Planet of the Apes line out then it would've been easy to make a Star Wars Bar Bom Vimdim... :wink: Though Evazan looks like he'll be an easy work into Trader Saun Dann.

Worst news Ive heard in a while- cancelation of Galactic Heroes for a stupid- Imaginext style line-- I dont think I can start over again-- they are making it cheaper and cheaper for me to collect...


Overall going to be a cheap star wars year--only saw about 4 or 5 vintage figures I may pick up- Probably most of the clone wars-- but all these repacks - just will look at them sitting on the pegs..

I thought we heard there was going to be a Massive Sand Crawler?

What happened? Was that just a rumor? :( :cry:

They had said that it was pretty much more an information gathering stage to see if we would be interested in that as a fan base- thats why it was "leaked"-- and the earliest we would see it-- even if it turned out to be a go would be Fall 2012.

I would have bought one. Those Clone Wars two packs of Jawas are fantastic.

The Clone Wars Republic Attack Shuttle looks just terrible.

That's really disappointing news. I guess much of my droid and Jawa collection shall remain homeless.

That attack ship will be a definite pass for me, as well. Other than a few figures and one ship, Hasbro won't be getting much SW cash for me this year.

Those SDCC Revenge cards are going to be a b!tch to ship inside that Death Star packaging! It's looking to be another great year for the Vintage line. It's about time that we got an updated General Lando! Star Wars has some major staying power for a line that's been shipping regularly since 1995's relaunch. I keep getting the same characters (Jedi Luke, Slave Leia) over and over again. But somehow, I never seem to mind very much. 8)

Am I crazy, or did I see a modern (2005 and later) articulation Bespin Han in there?

You're right, Eric! He's wearing what appears to be removable goggles and a power drill. It's Bespin Han and it looks like he's received an articulation upgrade. :D

Very, VERY excited! Favorite character, favorite 'costume', great articulation! Not sure how much I like the head sculpt, but I'll hold criticism until he's in-hand.

I think the new Bespin Han Solo is cool, and one we have waited for, for a long time.

The new Bespin Han is perfect except for the head sculpt. Regular Han is also very cool if you just take the ceremony medal off. It's a great homage to vintage "Big Head" Han from back in the day if you compare both figures.
