I'm surprised you guys are that into this. Quite frankly I'm really disappointed. I was hoping that this would be a way for Hasbro to keep getting new figures out and the '5 figures that hadn't been made' tease made me think it would be something really cool.
I was starting to worry that we were getting something pretty easy like this after Jeff's comment yesterday. I like astromechs and the paint jobs on these look nice. I'll keep my EE order and enjoy these to some extent. But in all honestly, I have dozens and dozens of astromechs by now, especially with the Disney BADs. I was really hoping for at least a few obscure humanoid figures - a jawa, a cantina alien, something original to go with the set.
I thought someone mentioned these being SA figures versus 5pt figures, but an astromech isn't SA at all unless there are some crazy new features these bring to the table. It's okay, but I'm disappointed it wasn't more.
**EDIT: It's right in the first post in this thread, "Figures include cool accessories and have the articulation you've come to love from The Vintage Collection and The Black Series
." Not sure if the "articulation" comment was Adam's or someone else's but that's really misleading and inaccurate for this set. I can see why people are upset if that was communicated broadly.
