    PASS!!!!

    WTF. ANother UGH of sorts. Okay so it's "First Day of Issue," smae difference if it means foil stamping on cards.

    I won't go out of my way to get them this time around. Just another money grubbing greed thing on the part of Hasbro.
    Move along, move along

    I didn't get any of the UGHs the first or second time other than the Vintage style figures. Why start now.

    Agreed! I remember when foil embossing almost killed the comic book industry in the early 90s. I got so tired of buying 5 covers of the same exact book that I walked away for a LONG while. In fact, I've never bought comics again in the bulk I did before then (paying for college and reading for that also helped). If avarice like UGH continues, I may end up doing the same with figures.

    Last year, I picked up a few UGH's just to have at least one in my collection. This year I won't even bother if all that's different about the packaging is a sticker/foil stamp.

    That's the first thing that popped in my mind after reading 'foil stamped' I will run away, FAR AWAY!!

    I didn't go out of my way to get them, if i found them i bought them. (Except for Concept Fett, which i tracked down from another collector who had an extra.) If i find these i will pick them up, but if i don't no sweat on my part. Nice idea, just bad--very bad for the hobby.

    Honestly, I don't get why someone would prefer a guy in a helmet with little or no back story over a EU character, and if this guy in a helmet does have a backstory it's EU!!!!

    This whole year for hasbro is SO gimmicky, it's disgusting. There's a total focus AWAY from the whole reason of the hobby this year, the FIGURE itself!

    Couldn't have said it better myself, Deoxy.
