Honestly, that's not even where your greatest skills lie. Obviously, the posing is great, but that's only part of what draws me into your best photos. Those are the ones that look indecipherable from movie stills. Your composition, your lighting, your props, AND your posing, are what make you one of the more notable figure photographers I'm aware of.

The concept Obi-Wan and Darth Vader (love that guy!) 2-pack look awesome, but I saw that it's a shopDisney exclusive. I just hope that I am still able to lock in a pre-order. I also hope that they do the others like Luke Skywalker, Han Solo and Starkiller.

EDIT: I'm not all that familiar with the Inquisitors, but their lightsabers looks wicked! Almost like Darth Maul's. I remember first seeing a double bladed lightsaber all those years ago when Episode I came out and being completely blown away!

Just got an email from Nerdzoic. They have the Target exclusive Galen and Anton. How did they get it and why is Target always last to get Target exclusives?

They showed the next archive figs with a Chewy, Old Han with new head sculpt and paint, Boush Leia has shorter legs but same head sculpt it seems with photo real, and Tarkin with photo real. Hasbro just showed them off but didn’t say when they will be preorderable.

Thwipp!

Oooooooo I MUST get Tarkin. One of the key ones I missed before becoming a collector.

It'd be nice to get the interrogation droid too, but being an archive release I doubt it will be included.

Boushh Leia is cool, but without a recently unfrozen Han to go with it...?

In my opinion, preferable than Old Man Solo since I only buy OT and the occasional prequel figure I like.

Will likely wait for some sort of sale on Tarkin via Target or Gamestop or elsewhere come Christmas time.

Which Chewy mold is it? Or do they not know yet? If it's the better one from the Bespin pack I'll probably get it. If its the old one I'll pass.

And Boush Leia needs more then just shorter legs. If you just shorten the legs the figure will look weird. The whole body needs to be scaled down. And that head would need to be as well. It looks fine for the figure it's on, but for a shorter or smaller body, shes gonna look like a bobble head. As is the whole body is thicker then any of the other Leia figures. It needs completely redone. I have mine in my bounty hunter display anyway. When I was a kid I'd always use Boush Leia and Chewie as Snoova *as Snoova* when I played with them. I never used them as the actual characters. So I figured I'd do that with her again since it was so tall. So if it looks good, I'll probably get the new one. But if it looks like Warwick Davis (no offense to him or the hightily challenged intended) I'm gonna skip it.

Im also pretty sure tarkin had photo real deco the first time around, I believe his wave was one of the firsts to use it no?

Ahh fantastic!

I'm keen for a Boushh too. I already have a good Leia (in her Hoth gear) so this could go with the bounty hunters. And Old Man Han looks really good, muuuuch better than his original release.
