Yakface.com have aquired b/w pics of TRU's Spring planogram for the Ep2 Star Wars range.

The pics aren't very clear, but I can't see any MM's or AF's (although there does appear to be 3 small ships in the top right corner of the last pic - but I think that they are snapfasts).

Have a look......

Very wierd, it forwards me to the diorama section and the really big shocker is that instead of their new theme, it's still the sandy brown theme with Skiff images and stuff. They must've modified the link and accidently it forwards to the diorama section (Bill's dioramas to be specific) and they must've forgotten to update the page. Anyone else get the same problem?

after the view the scans of the new potwhatever snowspeeder (http://www.myfigures.com/pa/index.html?item_id=28983) vs. the old one, it's comforting to know that hasblow is making good use of the galoob toys they bought out two years ago.

instead of us getting new micro machines and action fleet, the boys from rhode island seem to be using the action fleet line as they're master models for new potwhatever junk:frus:

to my eyes it does appear in fact that the new snowspeeder is a larger resculpt of the action fleet version. anyone else see it that way?

GSJ, the new POTJ snowspeeder is a remold of the POTF2 snowspeeder, which was a SLIGHT remold of the ESB snowspeeder from the early '80s.

Besides, Hasbro is too busy stealing Galoob's old "Jonny Quest" vehicles for their GI Joe line even though the plastic is a totally different quality and the JQ vehicles were designed for smaller-scale figures. :crazed:

Technically, it is... because this Snowspeeder is Luke's snowspeeder. See, the snowspeeder they released in the 90's, was just a snowspeeder for any rebel, but for this one, it's actually supposed to be the one Luke had, which is why it comes with a new Luke and a Dak Ralter figure.

britcit, the link isn't working.

That would be because the link is around 7 years old and Yakface is no longer located with Echostation.com.
