Sure are cool. Also, check out the carded Kubrick Fett. Now, that is sweet.

wow, I'm shocked at the lack of interest in these figures! :eek:
I posted this earlier but it got deleted, should I be posting about these? that's a question to the moderators.

What do you think of them? Do the carded images make you want them even more? Has anyone decided to get Luke and Vader after seeing the carded images?

took me 3 seconds to load the page on their (GH) site. I'm on a cable connection ... no problem.

(Except, I will say that when you take photos of something like a carded figure ... it's a good idea to not use a flash. Get a couple of those metal hardware store clamp lights and some 60+ watt flood (not spot) bulbs. Angle the lights so that there is no glare and shoot away.)

Even with the flash burn, I'd have to say that these look much nicer (at least carded) than I figured (tee hee) they would. Though I like the way that the photo next to the Luke figure shows how innacurate the figure is. (Wrong knee bent, flap on shirt should be closed and he didn't seem to have a big button coming out of his back in "real" life.)

Varder looks super. I'll buy that for a dollar.

Mostly I think I'm interested in the new Snowtroopers. I wish it wasn't in a fixed bent knee pose ... but it's still pretty spiffy.

That C-3PO looks great carded too ... Mmmm ... very exciting.

Great pic at GH!! That Snowtroopers Bubble is totaly filled, no dead space there! I really like these figures and cards. I don't mind the rehashes either, though Jango should not have been done, It's a pegwarmers HASBRO!! Whats up with the gimmicks? I thought we were through with those? Maybe after 03? Over all with these dark pic ai will buy them all. So Yes I am Jabba the Hutt, it makes me want them .................................................. .................................. Hey Killer, I have the slowest dial up in the world and I can view GH fine. It down loaded as soon as I went to the site. I wonder whats up?

No problem. I tend to remove images/links if we have the same thing (especially when they are better images). Doesn't make any sense to go off the site to another for the same thing.

Turbie, Hasbro said that the Luke, Vader, and Snowie would be the last figures to have action features. So yes, they are over with after those three, atleast for the foreseeable future. :)

I already see a problem with Luke :(

Much like the new He-Man sculpt they have him in more of a "dynamic" pose where his body looks misformed unless hes in one specific stance... Hunchback! Hunchback!

Hopefully th other Jedi Knight Luke from Jabbas palace will be more "play" friendly...

Knowing Hasbro, Wave 1 of Episode III figures will have action features... place your bets! :stupid:

Oh yeah. Better photos there now.

What? Does the Snowtrooper have an "action feature" also? Say it's not so, say it's not so.

... and those 12" Ewoks look great!!! (Is the 12" Luke cross eyed in that photo?)

I think the word is malformed and I also think you're right. (That's a very frustrating figure ... could have been so much better.)

Love 'em, love 'em, love 'em. I'm getting at least 1 Vader (what an AWESOME carded figure!) and a couple of those snowy-white Snowtroopers.

Pass on everything else, though they look nice on the cards.

PF. The Snowy's action feature is like the CloneTrooper's. It's in his cannon, not in the figure. :)

Luke looks awesome carded, I like it when the figure matches the portrait.

Jar Jar Binks Why thanks JJBinkies, I thought that may have been the case. I like what I see so far. Since I'm up to date on 3.75" I want more.

I know I'll be passing on the Jango, 3PO & possibly the Vader, even though I nearly have every other Vader.:rolleyes:

The Snowtrooper will look good with the rest of my POTF2 Snowies.:D

I'm riding the fence on the Luke. I may wait for the other version. I just not sure about these action features.:confused:

And has anyone else noticed-- in the bubble view pic posted-- it looks like his LEFT hand is wearing the glove, and his RIGHT is not??

Now that you mention it, it does look like that.

That is a first-shot carded figure. The final version of the production figures should have the correct hand color. :)

People said that about Anakin Tatooine Attack, they thought that the magnet wouldn't be showing on the final version but it was.

This is differnt then that. This is just a simple mistake. At the point of Ani: Tatooine Attack... Hasbro had decided to stop painting over the magnets because it was interfering with the magnets. :)

Yep, just as I feared, as soon as I turned off my firewall, BAMB, their page pops up in about 3-4 seconds. BTW, I'm running Norton System Works Professional Edition 2003.

I hate surfing without a firewall, it feels like I'm running around the web naked. I just feel so vulnerable.

Anyway, I put my firewall back up and scanned my system, ran a few clean-up programs and spyware detectors, etc. Yes, I am a bit paranoid.:crazed: I don't want anyone stealing my por...I mean programs. Yeah, that's it.;)

But, anyways, I'm sure the other site is great for surfing without a net.:D

These figures look great! Another reason for me to like the Saga line (outside of the crummy distribution of late). The pack-in bases and Snowie gunturret are a nice touch. Can't wait for Hasbro to announce their release then not ship them for several months. :crazed:

I think these figures are great! I will be buying one luke and probably two Vaders. I am glad they decided to give him a removable helmet. I will also get about 6 snowtroopers for my AT-AT. I can't wait! Finally, something to put on those pegs inside the AT-AT. These figures are going to be GREAT! :)

I love that Luke. I have one on pre-order,and then its a free for all with finding him(along w/ vader and the snowtrooper) in the stores. Its gonna be a sweet summer w/ these figures. Plus, I just had my bday party (the sweet 16) and I got some cash to spend, lol. Thanks all
