View Full Version : Stupid question about OTC Clamshells

Ok, I haven't been up to speed about the OTC line. The last time I was serious about collecting was sometime last year during the Saga collection, and only then I was only getting the AOTC figures.

But recently, I picked up three figs from the OTC line at Wal-Mart: Han Solo, Princess Leia, and Kenobi. I was pretty stoked to find them. These all had clamshell cases.

My question is, "Will all of the OTC figs come in clamshell cases, or is just for this first wave?"

BTW, which wave of the OTC is currently out now?

All of the ones that we refere to as the VOTC will be in clamshells. This is only 12 figures. You can tell the difference not only by the clamshell but buy the picture on the card. The VOTC look almost exactly like the vintage cards and the regular OTC have a FULL bubble going across the card and newer photos as backgrounds (not to mention they do not come with the clamshell).

The only figures out now from VOTC are Luke, Leia, Han and Ben. The rest will be hitting shortly.

All of the VOTC figures include:

ANH
___________
Ben Obi Wan Kenobi
Han Solo
Princess Leia
Luke Skywalker

ESB
___________________
Darth Vader
Lando Calrissian
Yoda
C-3PO

ROTJ
___________________
Boba Fett
Stormtrooper
R2-D2
Chewbacca

All of these figures commemorate the vintage style "old school" cards. There will be only 12 figures offered (supposedly). Good luck! I have found the first wave, like you, ben, han and leia. Luke will come later I suppose.

Hey guys, thanks for the clarification between the VOTC and the OTC. It's actually been a while since I have seen anything new in the stores. Then all of the sudden, these VOTC cards jumped out at me and I was pretty pumped.

Have the ESB and ROTJ VOTC figs come out yet? If not, then when?

Another stupid question:

Will the VOTC clamshells accomodate vintage cards? I've got a couple unpunched DROIDS figures I'd like to protect and I know I've got extra VOTC clamshells in storage. But before I dig 'em out, I thought I'd ask and see if anyone has used them to store vintage MOC.

I would assume they will fit because its the same sized cards right&?

Most of them should fit. I put the few I had in them and all but one fit, the bubble was different on he bottom.

Another stupid question:


as we always said while heckling from the back of class - there are no stupid questions, only stupid people.

in no way is that an attack on your intelligence, i just couldn't resist.

I dug out a couple VOTC clamshells and was able to fit my carded DROIDs figures into them so I assume most other vintage figs would fit as well.
