Sweet deals you got there!  8)

As for the helmet, the P2 guy, or "Pussyface", as he called in the fan forums, definitely has his mask off longer. It's actually off for the whole final battle. But since I have a few Predators with no mask (Elder, Lost, Shaman), I opted to get the masked versions of both "main" Preds.

I bought the TRU 2-pack (still available at some stores) and sold the half-cloaked Berserker. I have to say, I love the masked P-face Predator, mainly because I had this poster hanging in my room for pretty much my whole teen years, and that shows him masked and holding the spear. The 2-pack also includes a skull/spine and a Predator skull. I didn't collect the Rodriguez Predators movie figures, but I liked the Predator skull accessory.

It would be ideal if NECA would give us both heads and have them be interchangeable, but that doesn't seem to be happening.

The absolute best 2-pack Hasbro could give us would be the Tonnika Sisters, of course.

Oh yeah, these are just, plain awesome. I've picked up pretty much all of them (the ones from Predator and Predator 2, not the other movies), and I love them. I only passed on two of them: Snake and Stalker. Snake just didn't really get me as amped up as the other ones, and Stalker is too similar to Boar. They're both very cool, and I may circle back and pick them up eventually, but for now I'm happy owning all the rest of them.

I really want them to revisit Elder and Classic (or as he's called on the AVP boards "Anytime") with the upgraded articulation.

While we're on the topic, have you seen the shots for the upcoming Dutch figures? They'll apparently feature the same articulation, which is awesome. Now if we could just get a Jesse Ventura with a gatling gun...

Kmart is probably trying to release these as close to the holiday shopping season as possible.

I think this is a fantastic idea! And it would have so many possibilities. The only thing I would question is mixing them up, or keeping them uniform (one of each or two of the same kind). But here's some other possibilities...

Endor Trooper 2 packs (a great way to get the different uniform troopers out there...there was a lot of variety with the rebels)
Stormtroopers (I would buy pretty much every one I see, provided they avoid the boneheaded paint ops mistake of TVC)
Rebel Fleet Troopers
Hoth Rebel Troopers
Snowtroopers
Hoth rebel officers (the brown vested trooper)
Gammorean guards
Sandtroopers (with different ranks, but I would love the option to buy 2 of the black pauldron sandies in a pack, since they're the most prevalent.
Dresselian rebels (generic, non-hero)
Bespin guards
Imperial officers (black tunic)
Naval troopers

These would be excellent for army builders. Notice I opted to not include the clones, because I feel like letting Hasbro go wild with clones is akin to trusting a junkie to "hold onto" a bag of dope. Plus, what's worse than a clone trooper with a yellowing helmet? Two of them...in the same pack.

I could also see Hasbro expanding on this to give us some non-movie (and non Yuzhan-Vong) 2 packs...

Noghri warriors!
Mandalorian troopers
Sith troopers (KOTOR)

96
Are they shipping the corrected stormtroopers, or the ones with the messed up helmet paint?

The inability for the VC Battle Droid to hold the blaster with 2 hands is a deal breaker for me. That's just inexcusable at this point in time.

The hunt goes on.

I'd like to second Nicklab's feedback. Justin is a great guy to deal with, and excellent communication/packaging/etc. Highly recommended!

I have a feeling that it will be a subscription service...which will, quite possibly, blow.

Well this thread had taken an unfortunate turn.

I took a pic of the big fat 208.99 display at TRU today if any of you moderator types want it for the news. PM me and I will host or email it.

You're clearly much more responsible than the rest of us today.

102
Is that your "O-face?"

Is there a definitive list of all the onscreen Ewoks?

104
For $208 it should deploy battledroids and espresso.

Yeah, the pins are a little bit of a bummer, but I can overlook them easily enough.

I'd like to see the speeder bike expanded beyond the obvious Luke, Leia and Paploo usages, into actual troop building. I'm sure we'll probably get a Hoth version (which I like the idea of), but I'd also like to see a Sandtrooper version as well. Seems the new Sandtrooper mold should have no trouble riding the speederbike, and I'd like to have one with a dirtier paint scheme...maybe with some alterations to adapt to the desert climate.
