    Hoth 4 pack Tauntaun

    I have a question....or story for that matter. I have both the broken horn and full horned (?) tauntaun from the Hoth 4 pack. Is this an actual variation?

    I will get pictures up tonight.


    Woo Hoo 500th posting!!

    I believe one is Han's TaunTaun, the other is Luke's TaunTaun with the broken horn. Just Hasbro's way of taking more money from your pocket.

    I'm not going to pick up the second set, since there is just that slkight difference.

    To answer your question, I'd say it is a variation. I think Hasbro though some people would like one or the other. It could have been an error, but I doubt it.

    I was able to grab the 2nd version with two complete tusks yesterday.

    They actually had both versions on the shelf, although I grabbed the last of Han's Taun.

    I actually think it's cool that they made both versions.

    If one wanted to they can have an EU Infinity Adventure where Luke managed to fight off the Wampa, but had to cut open his Taun to stay warm for the night, or whatever other adventure one can image.

    Dang it! I can't find the Han taun taun! I think the Han taun taun is more rare. I already have the one with Luke's taun taun. Which taun taun is packaged with the Luke Skywalker in the old POTF2 Deluxe set? Does Luke's taun taun have a broken horn? If broken, I will have to pick up the other 4 pack...if not, I only need the 4 pack that I have now.
    One way to out think people is to make them think you think they'll think what you are not really trying to get them to think what you think.

    I finally saw a Han Tauntaun version at TRU Glendale the other day, I ended up passing though. It's quite a noticable difference.

    That's interesting. I was wondering what people meant by this variation - whether or not the broken/complete horn was the only change. It looks by the posted pic that "Han's" variation actually comes with the "blue" looking Tauntaun that came with the POTF Han w Tauntaun set as opposed to a grey one (like the one that came with the POTF Luke and Tauntaun set) with a complete horn. I'll have to see whether or not the blue tauntaun is at my TRU as my Hoth set came with the grey, broken-horned version.

    Now, all someone has to do is find a blue, broken-horned version and the fur will really start flying!

    The paint jobs looked exactly the same when I saw 'em.

    That's even more interesting, JT. My 4 pack Tauntaun looks identical to my POTF2 one that came with Luke. My Han one (which I only recently got, and keep on display because it took so damn long to find) is quite a bit more blue in colour, and has the unbroken horn. I guess maybe I need to dig out the POTF2 Luke one to make sure it wasn't blue when I got it as well. I don't think it was though.
