View Full Version : OTC figures: Straight Repacks or Changed?

As a loose collector, I planned on only getting the 8 or so "new" figures announced for the OTC. Then, pictures of the OTC Bespin Luke surfaced sporting an all new paint job. This to me constitutes a new figure, and is desirable to me. A report from a Canadian collector who got his X-Wing Luke OTC figure today says it looks "much better than the previous one". I've emailed him looking for what the changes were, but haven't heard yet.

EDITED: I have now heard - the flight suit is a more accurate colour, and the buck teeth are not painted white (and hence stand out a lot less, apparently).

What I'd like to do here is have people who have received the figures chime in here about whether or not any changes have been made to the sculpts, paint (or both) of these figures so I know which of the repacks I have to concern myself with, and which ones I can let slide by safely.

1-4) Dagobah Wave (all new figures)

5) X-Wing Luke NEW FLIGHT SUIT COLOR, UNPAINTED TEETH
6) Jedi Luke
7) Han Solo - ANH
8) Chewbacca
9) Princess Leia - ANH
10) Darth Vader
11) Biker Scout
12) R2D2
13) C3PO
14) Boba Fett
15) Obi Wan Kenobi - ANH
16) Stormtrooper
17) Wicket

18-20) Bespin Wave (all new figures)

21) TIE Pilot
22) Greedo
23) Jawas 2 pack
24) Tusken Raider
25) Snowtrooper
26) Luke - Bespin CONFIRMED NEW PAINT
27) IG88
28) Bossk
29) Darth Vader - Hoth CONFIRMED NEW PAINT
30) Gammorean Guard
31) Bib Fortuna
32) Lando - Skiff Guard Disguise
33) Leia - Jabba's Prisoner
34) Darth Vader - Throne Room
35) Han Solo - ATST Driver Disguise
36) General Madine
37) General Lando Calrissean
38) Imperial Scanning Crew Trooper

Thanks in advance for any input, it will help me (and others, I'm sure) a great deal.

I do believe most of them are repacks JJ, but some will have minor changes in them. Hopefully Bibsy will be new.

It's obvious there probably will be some differences depending on the age of the figures due to paint qualities differing from the time of production and/or opinions changing. Such as the Pilot Luke, Hasbro likely decided to use the opportunity to make it more correct than they did first time around. Kinda cool..
