We just got in several of new items for AOTC , and yet again there's a new " Slave I repaint " . I understand that everyone that collectors or knows what SW is , loves anything with the word " fett ' in it , but could they not come up with a new design...its getting to be like the Batmobiles and the batman figures.
Also picked up the new cereal boxes today at wally world , only because they will be great items to mail off for autographs . Light weight and all.

see ya in the Isles

Actually it's a resculpted Slave 1, not just a repaint. :cool:

How many times will Hasbro resculpt the Slave I? Not as many times as they will resculpt Qui-Gon and Obi-Wan.

looked it a repaint..true on the Qui-Gon/Wan...Slave 43...sounds like a Rocky movie

Actually I think the Slave 1 has only been resculpted for the basic figure lines 2-3 times, I'm not sure if the vintage mold and POTF2 mold were the same but the molds for the AOTC Slave 1 and the POTF2 Slave 1 are considerably different from what I've heard/seen.

I have the new Slave 1 and can tell you that in addition to being a different mold it is by far the most detailed and coolest looking of the bunch.

I agree...!! I never got the vintage or the POTF2 version. This one, by far, has the most features! Don't knock this one.

The original and PotF2 Slave 1s I think are the same mold (from the examinations I've given them). Only difference is paint and decals. This new one looks a lot better I must add.

Here is a link to the COMPARISON shots of the POTF2 Slave I vs. the AOTC version.

Looking at that picture I like the new one A LOT better than the old one. The old one looks like it is of a lesser quality (wings on side, gun turrets on bottom)

How many times will they redo the Slave I?? As long as you guys keep buying them.
Same with the endless Qui Gon, Obi Wan, Jango, Darth Maul, Luke, Han Solo, and Darth Vader resculpts.
Hasbro, " If we make it, they will buy it."
