Chewk pulled some scans from ToyFair magazine of the new "Mon Calamari Star Cruiser" set. Not quite what some were thinking probably, but hey look, we get official Mon Cal head pieces! Mon Mothma! Lando! A dkgreen A-Wing! And... other stuff!
Check out other pictures in Chewk's Flickrstream: here, here, and here.
Wow, looks like crap in my opinion. Except for the figs...there really isn't anything great. The A-Wing is just a rehash of the last release, and the rest of the structure looks bleh. On top of that it will be way over priced. I will pass on this one just like all the rest of the Star Wars sets recently.
Despite the not-unexpected "wow that's horrible!!!11" cries from the dependably negative UberPessimists, this playset actually has a lot to offer: several new figures, new headpieces, new torso prints, the fantastic A-wing model in an alternate color, tons of of white pieces... Sure, it's not a giant Home 1 ship, but that's not the goal of the set.
And all the others too, of course. The new MonCal headpiece looks awesome too. The structure seems nice, even if I was expecting the Home I to be a ISD/Venator sized job. Still this is a cool idea, although we did get a new A-Wing only3 years ago. Still, it looks like those engines are now available in DkGreen, which is pretty cool.
All in all, I rather like this set, although I doubt i'll be able to buy it...
I am so using Madine's torso for another Ghostbuster uniform.
I'll probably get the set, it doesn't look that bad. Any know what the price will be? I'm guessing somewhere between 100-120 dollars, although it may be more, what with all the figs and the new prints and molds.
