Uh, dumb question time. What's the point of a pauldron, functionally speaking? I'm sure there is one, aside from rank designation, but I have no clue what it might be.
I think I'll be buying every AT-TE driver I see. That should more than make up for any other figures I pass on while waiting for clearance prices
My "favorite" part will be next June when all of us are desperately crying out for help with the AT-TE Gunner because our local stores are CLOGGED with April 2nd figures... pegs and pegs of Mon Mothma, Grieveous Body Guard, SBD, Bail Organa, etc.
Those middle waves are sometimes tricky to find because of the initial glut of product clogging the shelves, so the AT-TE Gunner cases will rot in the back waiting and waiting to be stocked...
