I order these puppies last week and they arrived today. These were apparently only available [or originally available] at the Star Wars Celebration IV. If you are familiar with the concept artwork by Ralph McQuarrie for the original Star Wars [A New Hope] then these will look familiar otherwise they look very wrong.
I really like this size figure and I am so glad Hasbro has decided to stick with it while still giving us more detail and more articulation. Yeah Hasbro.
Â The packaging had the extra plastic protector over the regular packaging. The Star Wars Celebration IV sticker was on the outside protector. I am an opener but do not know if I will be opening these yet or not. I would really like to see the figures up close and personal like. Maybe I have to head back to the store and buy another one but at $20 a pop that is pushing it even for me and I am a huge sci-fi geek toy collector [to say the least].
The more I think about it the more I think I now have to try and track these all down. Try doing that without paying an arm and a leg on eBay! Figures I know of are: Darth Vadar, Luke Skywalker, Boba Fett, Chewbacca, Obi-Wan/Yoda and Stormtrooper. Not sure if there are others or if there will be but I will see who I can get. I do have the Yoda/Obi-Wan two pack on order just need to find me the rest.
