Not sure if I jump on Han & Luke or not... I was pretty happy with the versions included in with the Wampa & Tauntaun. I wonder if they redid the faces.

Yeah, they used photoreal painting on their faces. Like they will for all figures going forward (TVC or BS).

I'll grab them if I see them - Hoth is impossible to resist.  :(

It would be good to have a Luke without blood on his face. I heard they didn't resculpt Luke's face so you can make out the scarring from the wampa pack. They just painted over it. I'm not sure if that's the case but I read that somewhere.

It is. And the fact that they didn't give him goggles annoys me enough to pass on it. For Han, i wish he had the convention hood down look as an alternate accessory and head that you can swap out. As it is, they are both a pass for me unless the photoreal is really good if I see it in person.

Yeah, that's what I keep seeing. I missed out on Gideon at all the stores.  Did get a Rey though from local comic store, but it was gold saber instead of silver.  Would have preferred the silver.

If anyone was wondering, there is a fully sculpted and painted head under the hood.

Since we’ve been shut down completely here in the GTA since Boxing Day, I have been satisfying my buying habit doing business with dangerlinto.  He has been making the best looking custom carded TVC figures that I have seen, and at very reasonable prices.  I have been able to pick up more than a dozen figures that have never appeared on vintage card backs before.  I am really pleased with them.

Managed to finally find a Gideon at Walmart today. Nice to see they are still restocking.

It's a great figure. I struggled to not buy it - I wanted the Darksaber almost badly enough to cover the cost on its own!

Rationale for anyone thinking I've lost my mind - I can't start down the 6" Mandalorian rabbit hole. Cannot......  Will not.....

Should not.  :(

I had pre-ordered him at EBGames and it still hasn't arrived yet, so I wasn't gonna pass up buying it when I saw it.  I can just get my money back from EBGames or see if it comes soon and buy it at the discount price and then I can just refund that one at Walmart.  Not sure if I'm gonna go through that hassle for $3 though...haha.
