    very comprehensive photosets. thanks much for the links, sicqnus!

    I like the snowspeeder a lot, and will probably buy at least two openers, maybe more, of this one. I want extras so I can paint the grappling hook cannon.

    at-at doesn't look unique enough to warrant a re-release, but I'll still get at least one opener & one boxed.

    i havn't even ventured out to look for the at-at or snowspeeder

    i just can't git all werked up over these two particular rehashes.

    the x-wing, falcon, and vaders tie, hooked me in, cause they were the 1st af's released in three years. i liked the paint job on the x-wing and falcon so much, i would have bought these varients anyway. (vaders tie, i could live very nicely without, but hey, it was part of the set)

    i have zippo interest in the snow bunnies though. i ain't even curious to track these things down to take a peek.

    maybe i'm jes gettin old (well we already new that granpa! )

    bring on the next wave i say, lets see something new fer a change

    ...finally

    maybe I was bit harsh in my review on this one. I guess the new paint does bring out a few details that are pretty much lost in the previous releases of this one...

    Nice scans Swaffy!

    Here's another one I can't figure out, why would the AT-AT get snow all over its sides like that? In the film, I don't remember ANY snow being on it above the ankles (in part because it wasn't snowing during the battle!!!) so where's the logic in this light winter dusting that clings to the sheer sides of this mighty behemouth? Even on the official SW site, the only snow is collected at the top of the ankle in a big clump (a detail which the AF version doesn't even have): http://www.starwars.com/databank/veh...g/movie_bg.jpg
