Thanks for the clarifications on the Hot Toys ordering process, OdoWan!
Hopefully this will help at least one person in this thread if they are looking into buying their product.
On another note, here's a brand new loose group shot of the three figures in the controversial Bespin Battle Pack
in the Hasbro STAR WARS line. I must confess I don't dislike this multipack as much as I used to in part because a few recent photos and reviews of the set(as yet unreleased) make it seem somewhat better than first impressions would lead a collector to believe.
But, as with anything like this, the final judgment will be when I actually get my hands on this set to see for myself. It might still suck. I might end up buying it. Who knows. But its stock is ever so slightly on the rise at the moment.
Luke's sun-yellow hair still looks kinda stupid, but I'm warming a little to the rest of the figure.
