Well, I decided that I cannot afford this line so I am selling my figures. If you are still looking for any figures, or want an instant loose collection check the classifieds section.

Between Best Buy and Target, I got the extended Cut Black Hawk Down DVD and 28 Days Later Special Edition DVD for $16.49 plus tax.

Picked up two maroon Battle Droid two packs and Boba Fett. It's turning out to be a great week for me.

EDIT:The weeks getting even better. Got to open a few cases at the same store tonight, walked away with Sandtrooper, Battle Droids(Maroon), and 5 501st Legion Clone Troopers. Now I gotta hunt for some COBRA Officers and trade baitUGH figures.

Got a full set of these figures today. Now I need to go open them...  ;D

Well, after opening these guys, here are my thoughts:

BOBA FETT- Not too great. The colors are cool and he makes a great generic Mandalorian warrior, but he is not as good as the other figures in this wave. Easily my least favorite.

LUKE SKYWALKER- Great figure! Super articulation and great accessories! The only negatives are the cloth upper tunic, which is too large behind the neck and the red paint on the hand. I hope Hasbro releases a Death Star II Luke soon, as it would be an easy retool/kitbash with this figure. As much as I enjoy this figure, he's not one of my favorites.

DARTH VADER- Awesome figure, but yet again, not one of my favorites. The helmet he wears in the package is very cool, but the second helmet looks almost exactly like a normal Vader helmet. Good articulation and an awesome pistol. I can't wait to set him up fighting Luke and Obi-Wan.

CZ-4- Another great figure. Awesome weathering and excellent sculpt. Articulation is good, and it makes me more excited about the upcoming 4-LOM figure. The only thing better than a SA droid is a SA droid with a huge rifle.

ELIS HELROT- Cool sculpt and good articulation. The bar piece is awesome, espacially when connected to ONITH's. The figure itself is kind of scary looking, but in a good way.

ONITH- Easily my favorite of the wave, along with Umpass-Stay. The bar piece is awesome, as is the articulation and detail in the figure's sculpt. The only downside is the hard plastic skirt that prevents sitting, and the recycled pistol from GREEDO. ELIS' pistol is also dissapointing, but it looks more generic.

UMPASS STAY- My other favorite from Wave 4. Articulation is decent and reminds me of the MUSTAFAR LAVA MINER figure. The detail on the sculpt is amazing, and the removable head cloth is a nice touch. I am looking forward to getting the Jabba's Palace Battle Packs to give this figure some friends.

The Diet Coke with Bacon had me laughing for several minutes.

As for my favorite Soft Drink, it's Diet Dr. Pepper. Nothing beats that.

But what if I don't trust you?  ;)

Thanks for searching for the article/post. I appreciate it.

Reid, would you mind posting a link to that? Thanks!

I have a very nice Raleigh collector from RebelScum hooking me up with a full case on Monday, so I'm pretty excited. For $86, it's cheaper than buying 12 basic figures at Target. Not bad at all... I'm just worried about lead paint on the figures (I'm an opener)  :P

This BP looks like a cheap and easy way to get some Hoth Rebels for my Snow Troopers to fight. Put me down for one set.

This set doesn't really do anything for me. I have met my goals for Stormies and Scouts in my Imperial Army, and I don't need the Han or Chewie. The figures still look really nice, but I'm not going to pay $20 for one driver. I am, however, very happy for you Imperial Army Builders.

I think it's the angle of the cardboard tank. I'm pretty sure I saw a picture of the back of the box and the tank was a lot easier to make out.

EDIT: Here's a link to a pic of the back of the box

Jesse, I assume you mean the background of the box, which looks to be an overturned and blown up AAT.

I'm reading Black Hawk Down for the second time. Such a well written book with such vivid details and so much stuff to take in.

Yeah, I know. I just wish Hasbro decided to change all weapon colors to black. But, you can't have it all, I guess.
