Han's coat is not dark enough but at least they made a Correct Brown version

Anyone also notice that they have TC-6 on the R-3PO card front and back!

Didn't notice that, but I'm not surprised - it's gonna be way easier to find pics of that Prequels droid than of the authentic background droid in ESB. ;)

And it is all due to my main man JT that I know Han's coat is Brown, we figured it out a LONG time ago :p

Good call on the TC thing...just thought it was funny

Hmm, now that they rereleased figures from three months ago they can rerelease Ephant Mon, Sio Bibble, and TC-14. But no, who needs those figures?

It appears that the pictures
Darth Vader (Throne Room Duel)
Luke Skywalker (Throne Room Duel)
and the Snowtrooper
are the exact same as the ones already released.
Can anyone verify this?

I've heard two stories about Han's coat now. First that it was actually brown. Then later I heard that he wore 2 different ones a blue & a brown in different scenes of filming. Does anyone know if there's any truth to that?

I think that two coat thing is just speculation...nobody has shown me definitive proof that the coat is anything other than brown...

There is a pretty interesting thread over at GH concerning the original Licensing Slick used by Kenner. That slick has a brown color called out and yet we get a blue figure. The slick in and of itself was the final straw for me that the coat is and always was brown

Here is the slick

The color reference is a Pantone color

There is also a neat thread here (http://www.galactichunter.com/ubbthreads/showflat.php?Cat=&Board=Vintage&Number=25821&page=&view=&sb=5&o=&fpart=1&vc=1) concerning the slick

Sure looks that way to me. Be darned if I can tell a difference.

They are the same, they are re-releases.
