lol... did you edit that? Cause I swear it never said Lando. I had to check YoJoe's post to see who you were talking about.

No I asked about Lando and I got a picture of Luke instead

If anyone in Canada can pick me up 3 of the 501st jet pack trooper. The bone heads at Hasbro said the Clone Wars figures on the Yoda card will not be sold in the US.

There were two recent ones. One came out and everyone was Ike... "That one is awesome!!!", then a year or two later they brought out an even better one:

I just realized something...I haven't seen a new Bespin Lando in eons..I don't remember seeing him on the vintage cards recently

The pescimist in me says Hasbro/Kenner planned it this way ever since the POTF2 figures. Do the bare bones articulation first which everyone will buy anyway because there was a Star Wars drought for a good ten years after the vintage line (you want me to believe they couldn't give their figures knee and elbow joints in the mid 90s???). Then slowly trickle out the same figures with more and more articulation each time. Fooling the collector into thinking, "OK, THIS is the ultimate version of Bespin Luke. I'll buy this ONE more...." Stretch this out for a good 15 years until they just can't do it anymore and then BOOM...what do ya know! A new scale comes along!

Crafty.

Hasbro needs to get with the program and adopt the articulation style of their other 3 3/4 lines for Star Wars.

GiJoe and MU are so much better than Star Wars. I cringe everytime I see the t-crotch

It's all to make more money...which we all know, Star Wars is great at. A few years down the line, they'll release the "super articulated" figures that have GI Joe articulation, and get everyone to buy the figures of the same characters they already own four or five of...

JoeRhyno - 2013-02-13 @ 3:26 am

What's funny is they started getting to a point where some of their figures has Joe like articulation:

After making figures like those, I always thought it was weird making hips like these and then the other figures, in the same vintage lines would get the T-crotch hips. I really hope they keep it consitant with the 6" black series.
