Oh, here's a neat one. Mostly neat due to the accessory, as the figure mold is showing its age, this Star Tours Darth Vader just hit a month and change back, reusing the 2005 "500th" Vader mold with a nifty new floating platform.

The new Star Tours action figure sets are at the Disney parks right now.  These new Hasbro action figure gift sets each sport at least 4 action figures plus new accessories.  Some are better than others, and they're $39.95 each.  (My pal Shannon was kind enough to pick mine up from Disneyland.)  More details after the jump from someone who hasn't been on the new ride yet. UPDATE: Called out "differences" on repackaged figures.
