V. O. T. C. Individually the four letters have no power at all, but when arranged in this specific order, those four little letters have the power to make grown men weep. For wave two of the VOTC line, expect to be treated to the best sculpt and articulation your money can buy. This year Hasbro is offering us five new figures:

STAR WARS



We will be seeing three new Super Articulated figures on Star Wars cards. Expect to see Luke Skywalker (X-Wing Pilot) to come with a removable helmet and the Sand People figure to sport stylish soft goods robes. Greedo will feature all the bells and whistles you’d expect on a VOTC figure, but don’t expect anything extra cool.

Return Of The Jedi



While it is a bit of an assumption, it would be worth counting on the Han Solo (In Trench Coat) figure to include a soft goods trench coat. The Biker Scout is simply cool enough in its own right, so who could ask for anything more that the Super Articulated treatment. Wanting more would be like looking a gift horse in the mouth.

What? No The Empire Strikes Back figures???

At this point there is no word on any TESB or POTF carded figures in the line, but that doesn’t mean we won’t see them later on. We will be seeing our first send away figure though. Remember the George Lucas figure mentioned previously? Word on the street is it could be offered as a mail in figure through the VOTC line. It would require five VOTCproof of purchases, and we might find the offer printed or stickered on the cards. Sadly, we also hear that the Lucas figure will once again be playing 501st and forgoing his standard flannel armour in favour of Stormtrooper armour. Maybe if we pretend we didn't hear that it'll go away...

Now that you've seen the prototypes of Hot Toys' upcoming Movie Masterpiece Series MMS261 Han Solo and MMS262 Chewbacca 1/6 scale figures, our ever inquisitive Probe Droid is tasked to find out whether you are going to collect the line.
Hot Toys had me at "Hello There"
1/6 scale collecting has just lept forward. I'm in!
I hope the actual products are better than the prototypes, and if they are I'm interested in collecting this line.
This will be my first venture into the realm of 1/6 scale collecting...
I'm a 1/6 scale collector, but I'm not interested.
I'm not a 1/6 scale collector, so no, I won't get into this line (yet).
