I got my basic set today. I didn't realise R2's head spins/swivels kinda neat. As for Antilles my kub is fine but the head on my friends looks big. I'm gonna have a closer look then report back.

*edit*

I've just compared my Antilles to my friends and it would appear that the hair piece in the helmet is too small for the head so it doesn't fit on as snug as it should. Not really sure how to fix it.

here's hoping that DX5 raises the bar!!!

Here's hoping we get one! or any Kubricks for that matter. We've entered a Kubrick ghost town and it's overrun with tumble weed!

Even more reason for me to pick up the Criterion blu-ray of Anatomy of a Murder later this month.

That's one of those moments in time that if you were alive to see it, you never forget.

No as these are "in hand" photos from instinctoy and the only way that horrible torso piece could be wrong is if it's a production error. What I dislike about isnt so much the lack of detail but the different colour of the torso compared with the arms or the skirt.

How do you know these are "in hand" photos?  Seems like the same generic photo that has shown up all over.  Maybe they originated and everyone else has copied, but how do you know?

To use an Americanism, "This ain't my first rodeo". Also since when outside of the Medicom books have there ever been stock photos of a chase?

For reasons beyond understanding instinctoy has now named the chase as Grand Mohsen Tarkin. I believe Mohsen is just what they call Moff.

Well at least we have a name now but I'm still less than impressed. Here's hoping the 2nd chase is something special.

Yeah I know it's not a skirt but the fact that they have it coloured grey while the torso is just a plain black piece makes it look like a skirt  ;)

Technically...it is not quite the Vintage Commander...more of the Jumpsuited guys Symposium posted

The ONLY difference is missing badges on his chest.  ::) I'll be calling him "Imperial Commander" instead of "Jumpsuited Guy."

and the shoulder insignia AND the grey skirt!!!!  ;D :P

What's with the grey skirt?



Those guys in the other picture I posted look like death star gunners in formal dress and without the helmet.

it's an imperial commander!!!

Actually I don't think it is.

He has nothing on his chest and insignia on his shoulders.

He looks more like one of these guys.



No doubt one of the guys on here will know his name. I'm just not very good on the background character names.

Uncle Owen and the Hoth Rebel Trooper were both the cheaper of the two chases from DX2 and DX3. I guess I'm hoping the 2nd chase of DX4 is a bit cooler than the Imperial Commander.
