    I absolutely want a Han in Bespin outfit, as it's my favorite of his looks from the OT, but not looking to pay aftermarket exclusive prices to get him. Hopefully we'll just get a standard retail release sans Mynock.

    From what i have read, that's exactly what is happening. Kind of like Jedi Master Luke and Jedi Training Rey.

    Hopefully they'll re-release Bespin Luke, too.

    Does anyone know of the time frame for Bespin Leia at Target?

    Bespin Luke with the facial scan tech would be a dream!

    Would love it if they'd re-release ROTJ Luke with that tech as well.

    And Jedi Exile Luke.

    And Crait showdown Luke.

    And Jedi Temple flashback Luke based on bts photos from TFA rather than TLJ.

    We don't even see a shot of flashback Luke in TFA outside of his brown cape and metal hand though lol.

    True, but the BTS photos look better than what we saw in TLJ.

    I have a Darth Revan on the way from Amazon! Woo!

    Got him, after one having been lost in transit recently. Would be pretty dope if it was found and delivered, too.

    Anyway, here's a pic of the figure with the ebook cover and one with the 3.75" carded figure.[​IMG][​IMG]

    I just got my second Black Series fig- ordered Revan online today. I can't wait to see this one in person. He looks amazing in all the pics I have seen.

    Revan just came in!! He's an OK figure, but he's very photogenic.

    Great photos. The Revan that I ordered a few months back has just been dispatched. Really looking forward to getting my hands on this one. I feared that I had missed the boat on a Revan.

    Hasbro are re-releasing the 6 inch IG-88. That is the best news that they could have given me. I will also be ordering the pilot Luke and Boba figures. I knew that Ezra would be coming sometime this year, but Chopper was a nice surprise. I really like the flames from his thrusters, they give the figure a very dynamic appearance.

    I like to see the occasional re-release of figures. This allows collectors to get their hands on figures that they may have missed first time around. It also makes things harder for the greedy scalpers trying to squeeze money out of genuine collectors.

    Considering how often repacks have been done in the TBS 4" line these re-releases are indeed welcome and like you @Dannik Jerriko I will be seeking out those as well as the new ones :)

    Really disappointed that Bespin Leia is in her escape outfit rather than her gown - it feels lazy/samey of them to release alongside Hoth Leia. I saw a picture somewhere of the Hoth Leia that, iirc, should go to market and it looks incredible. It's probably only a matter of time until they make use of the Bespin head to put her in the gown too, but I'm just bitter that I'm now grappling with the deep urge to buy both knowing that I'll probably want a second Hoth Leia to keep in box too and that'll mean buying three figures that are all either the same or very similar in one hit. [face_laugh] Usually I could justify leaving the Bespin one, especially with the similarity, but I just love the improvements to these Leia figures and really want to support them and have them as part of my collection.

    That Chopper is awesome too. Gonna struggle to resist that.

    Totally agree with this. I was pretty disappointed to see Bespin Leia in overalls as opposed to the gown. I might not have given this too much thought if Hoth Leia hadn't been coming out at the same time. It does appear a little on the lazy side. Nonetheless, I'll buy both as well. I also like to buy and support the Leia figures (Boushh is the best so far, but Hoth Leia looks awesome).

    She was previewed in the white outfit at Toy Fair so I was expecting it. But they do have the headmold so her maroon gown should be in the pipeline.

    Ok so it looks like we're getting both ESB Leia's - Hoth and Bespin Escape. Bespin is a Target exclusive, Hoth is not. Bespin Leia was a new preview at SDCC - they showed Hoth Leia at Toy Fair this winter.

    Why they didn't /haven't previewd the top figures anywhere yet, I have no idea. Could be for first 1/2 of 2019 and we'll see them at Toy Fair next year.
