NEWS: Star Wars - Vintage Collection

I normally don't do this, but I was excited to find out that have posted OFFICIAL images from the first wave of action figures in Hasbro's Star Wars: "Vintage Collection"!  There were rumors and then news of this for some time, and finally the long wait is over (partially)!  Apparently, these "vintage" figures will be packaged with the old "classic" Kenner cardback design.  This "vintage" collection will include the prequel trilogy and the expanded universe. has separate thumbnails which reveal the figure in closer detail.  The first wave is based on "Star Wars: Episode IV: The Empire Strikes Back" which include: Luke Skywalker (in Bespin gear), Princess Leia (in Hoth gear), Dengar (the badly scarred bounty hunter who is briefly seen on the Super Star Destroyer, who also has beef with Han Solo), and the AT-AT Commander General Veers!

I've got to say that the worst of the bunch by far is General Veers.  The previously-released Veers figure is more accurately sculpted than the current not-yet-released one.  How strange...
