Backed you Paul.  Sorry it took me this long!

if u check brickseek, you'll see prices are all over the place.  my 2 closest stores are different prices.  typical walmart.

not that I saw Pete, but I'm kinda skimming at this point as I'm abit hobbled at the moment haha.

word on social media is now the other two RO figures are shipping too...  Great, huh?  :-\

I can't go all in but I'm going close to it and have a surprise courtesy of my bro who went beyond all in haha.  :D

Iirc it's basically r5d4s back panels done correctly.  I think.

I'd be happy if they just repainted the one we got or stuck on any of the myriad that fit but with a new hair color to it.

Oh...  and a holster that works too.

Titanfall 2 is getting some pretty solid backing/reviews...  I'd heard there was some concern it was gonna fail because of delays and such, but so far things are looking good for it.  I can't game much anymore but I'll make myself play some Titanfall 2.

Cyborg monkey FTW.

Got mine, glad I did...  I have my beefs with it, but they're not the price per figure... 

I saw a lot of posts regarding this, and some of them citing very specific #s like they somehow knew the cost breakdown on it...  Kinda funny.  I get you want it to be cheap, but is EE ever going to get that?

I have more of a beef with the sculpt they chose than the price-per-figure breakdown, but that's just me.  That said, they're pretty unique decos in the grand scheme and are anxiously awaiting a spot on the display shelves...  The orange/grey and red/white droids are my favorites.  I could've done without the pink one in favor or something more interesting (I already have R2-KT so I'm good on pink astromechs).  The green guy is kind of bland, but then again there is no all white with green accents R2 unit that I can think of off-hand.  So the white dome kind of stands out.

Again, I don't like this sculpt...  To me, I'd much rather have gotten the BAD sculpt, and yeah an R5 in place of the R2 domes would've been cooler then, but we didn't get that sculpt so I get why we got all R2's.

Wow yes congrats Paul!  I know it's been a concern of sorts and if anyone deserves some success on this it's you for pushing it for so long.  Way to go man!

Hiya updated their facebook page with some video of their latest Aliens APC prototype...  They're basically showing off how many moving parts it has, as that's a vehicle with a lot to work with.

It looks like the Lt.'s chair by the monitoring screens slides back and forth, the back drops to allow seating for the Marines in the rear, the main cannon slides on its rails for entering low clearance buildings, the side door slides open/closed (so Hicks can blast an alien trying to hold the door open), and so much more!  Tons of detail on this.  I have their Power Loader, and LOVE it.  Worth every cent I paid, and looks as good in a Star Wars display as it does an Aliens one.  It's very much like a model though, and a tad fragile compared to a traditional "toy" so if you pick one of those up, just go cautiously setting it up and posing it. (just a warning)

I'm really hoping they pull off the APC...  with as much teasing as they've done with it, I cannot imagine they don't get this into production and complete.  Their timetables may be slow, but it's worth the wait IMO.

My 3 came in...  man the snow deco isn't that high on my list of wants, but this armor is all kind of kick ass.  It is actually applied like armor, and over top of a basic figure torso, so this was I'm sure something that economically helped them keep costs down while basically giving us a new figure for all intents and purposes.  It's really a neat figure and the cargo box packaging?  It's functional, they stack upon each other and kind of "lock" together so they can't just slip off of one another with a bump to a shelf...  It's awesome.  The handles on the box are sized perfectly to the Laurel's hands too, absolutely perfectly, so that they fit quite well and look badass like they're loading the boxes aboard a ship or something.

I have a hankering for more of these guys now, but I really hope they mix up deco and give us some green, black, tan/sand, and other deco choices.  I'd even dig some "urban" ones that the box is maybe a different color and the trooper is maybe more of a police deco like riot troops or something.

If I have a complaint at all, it's a lack of functioning holsters/sheaths and removable parts from weapons.  In this case a removable bayonet would've been cool and a sheath for it even cooler.  Likewise though, ALL these figures could use a pistol with a holster as an extra plus.

But if it meant giving up the box, I'll take the cargo box any day of the week.  Lacks deco, but is instant diorama fodder.
