    You are a bold and courageous person, afraid of nothing. High on a hill top near your home, there stands a dilapidated old mansion. Some say the place is haunted, but you don't believe in such myths. One dark and stormy night, a light appears in the topmost window in the tower of the old house. You decide to investigate... and you never return...

    Figure gives me a "Fisher Price Adventure People" vibe.

    I think it is the opaque visor.

    Nice! I thought it looked like his helmet was removable at first, but I guess that wouldn’t quite be vintage style.

    I know some Jedi figures had removable helmets, but did any ESB figures? I can’t remember any...
    Expectation is the death of discovery.

    I think the rumored single carded figures are Luke Bespin, Han Bespin, Lando, Leia Hoth, Yoda and AT-AT driver.

    Luke looks great but the boots should be the same color as the gloves, not black.

    I dig them. I don't really collect SW much anymore. The last SW toys I bought were the retro collection figures last year. So I am really looking forward to the Empire wave.

    i got the boardgame with the grand moff figure, my wife wanted the board game, the figure is ok. I thought I'd be really into the whole retro thing but it didn't really resonate with me. I still have my childhood originals and nothing can really top those i guess.

    I have my old Kenners too. I still really dig these. Not much really tugs on the ol' nostalgia heart strings like Kenner.
