Can always articulate it yourself if you're feeling saucy.

I'm planning to do that with a few figures just because.  I'll grab that Stormtrooper officer for that actually.  I'm going to do up the one DT I have here that way too.

Like Jeff, I can't count on Wal-Mart to get me the numbers (even minimum) I want so I have a backup plan as crummy as it may be.   :-\

On the Scarrif/Shore/whatever troopers I find it interesting that they're the Empire's Marine Corps more or less...  Kinda makes you look at the "Imperial Naval Trooper" with a question mark...  Though, are they one in the same, just in a combat armor?  Questions for another section of the forums.

This is pretty interesting man...  It's making that figure appealing actually, something I can't say I considered at all before.

Does the hood pop off easy?

I've been looking at a lot of that kinda stuff lately and the "Vulture" Cargo Shuttles are also apparently part of one large logistics plan that involves modular containers, which makes sense of course since that's more or less how things work here too, but it's very streamlined for the Empire it seems.  Those orange cargo pods in the belly of the AT-ACT are the same that hang under the hull of the shuttle, etc.

It reminds me of the Imperial version of the Gallofree Yards Transports, as the Rebel Transports have basically modular containers locked into a hull shell of sorts.  It's kinda neat to see basically the Empire doing something similar if not a little more organized looking and less cobbled.

I really want the orange cargo pods on the back of the Rhino/Hover tank...  They remind me of a cargo pod in Star Trek: TNG that was kind of ubiquitous and would just turn up here and there in episodes.

Yeah mine came off easily...  Since it's held in with tension perhaps it was just stiff

That's what she said!

And, just revealed... 

Doors in 6" and 3.75" scales!



Looking at the design, these appear that they'll be opening doors to boot.

Thanks to my friends who go to WDW all the time, I got two of this set for $48. :)  Hell of a discount!  Can't wait to get them in the mix.  They all look great and R3s are my fav so I'm glad to see a new one in there.

Man I love droids.

Oh yeah the toy isn't anywhere near correct Tman.  It has a dual searing (at least) cockpit and the troop pod which I think must be removable on a "real" one.

Cool design.  I've really enjoyed it coming into the world of ship designs.  Very incom looking and still unique with clear design an purpose beyond a fighter.

I'd forgotten about that one.  I liked him too...  X2 even.

It's awesome Paul, and I'm glad that the out-of-the-gate numbers are spiked like that.  I hope it keeps going along and gets fulfilled.  I'm really wanting this line to be a reality, as much for you as my own greed.  I know it's been a big deal for you to get this made, and I think it's the unique kind of thing collectors are looking for.  Like HACKS touched on something different and new, I think this line's exciting because it's a new world to explore/collect, not the same old same old.

Of COURSE Disney and EE are comparable...  Of course.  :-X

Yeah the value stuff seems to be much more in-scale with very small figures.  That's why the Falcon was painted up and used as a miniatures battles piece for tabletop gaming...  Cool though that people find a use for them like that.

"Why'd they have to repaint them!?  Now I have to buy them!"

"Why'd they not repaint them!?  I want something different!"

  :-*

Seriously though, I like things I can pass on easily enough without it being just different for the sake of being slightly different.  I was always wishy washy on the repaint waves of the good ole days, though I still dig that Imperial Gunner repaint as a unique Impy trooper type.

Yeah mine came off easily...  Since it's held in with tension perhaps it was just stiff on yours CHEWIE.  It's now got a gaping hole in it, but thankfully it's removable so the hole gets no real gripe from me.

I thought these had Imp logos on them somewhere in the show? 

Anyway, this was one of the only things I grabbed at MM, as I was debating this being readily available since it's part of an assortment with repacks and such...  I've gotten quite a few Ezra bikes to repaint already when I've had coupons and things, so I wasn't terribly concerned, but I still wanted a nice factory one. :)

Last one was around $30...  if the toy gods are smiling upon us, this one will be as well.
