Yeah, I got him too and I totally agree...I kinda wish I had 3-4 of them, but doesn't really work without the bikes. That would have made for a great Deluxe set.

Get the Quarren and Mon Cal Troopers too.  You'll dig 'em.

Done and done! Yes, those guys are terrific too...they were among the first I picked up. Just need Obi-Wan and Saesee Tiin to complete my Legacy Clone Wars themed collection.  ;D

I recently picked up BD10 and BD16, the Scuba Trooper and Quad-Gun Clone Trooper off eBay for less than the standard MSRP for the Black line today, so that's the kind of place my money is going nowadays. Well spent too, these are cool figures.

The last scene alone was enough to confirm I should be watching this show. Epic!

Excellent additions to the cast! This is really getting me optimistic for the flick. I just hope Lupita is not Obi-Wan's daughter as I just don't like that whole basic premise.

Loved seeing the new set photos, but wonder if that isn't some kind of planned leak...seems like JJ would have a tighter lid on that kind of stuff as a notoriously secretive type. Hell of a way to keep stirring up interest though.

So encouraging to hear they're shooting monsters that take 5 people to operate them too...speaks to a departure from the CGI laden effects of the PT, and a great nod to the OT. What's old is new again.

And wow, I think I saw more black people in those 45 photos than the first 3 movies put together. Props for putting together such a diverse cast, even the extras reflect a broad range of ethnicities which only enhances the SW universe that much more, IMHO.

Just the voice though, as I understand it.

I can't really imagine him in that type of role, but he's not necessarily a bad choice I guess.

After three bad flicks in a row I guess he's eager to get on board the ultimate slumpbuster.

The wave 1 sandtrooper is the officer, isn't it?  I thought the trooper variant coming out was the "trooper"?  I could be wrong as I can't recall which color the wave one was.  Orange is the officer color though.

D'oh! I guess I had that backwards...thanks for the correction.

I just hope they carry the other lines too if/when they ever come out...I'm starting to wonder.

Picked up another Sandtrooper at TRU over lunch today, since I already gave in to the army building impule for the regular Stormies. I figured it would look a little silly just having one trooper standing there next to the officer that is due out soon.

Plus I haven't seen this guy around much for quite awhile, thinking I might not have too many more chances at him. I got them to price match the $17.99 online price too.

If they're all just repacks, why would anyone need to "change their underwear" at SDCC?  ;)

I thought this was only going to be $45?

I don't know, doesn't look much better to me than the Hasbro version. Not sure if my comic shop would even stock these or not either.

That SDCC exclusive 3-pack with the all-black Jaegers from the ending credits is a must have, I shudder to think of the secondary market prices on this though.

I've seen as many bad reviews as good for Godzilla, so that doesn't really wow me as a credit. Nor does any of the stuff the other guy has done, but that's not to say they can't make a good Boba Fett movie.

As long as it's set between Rebels and ROTJ, I think they'll be in safe waters.

Worst part: The scene set in 1999 that features a kid playing with a 2004 LEGO Snowspeeder. Do they REALLY think they can get away with BS like that?

Let me guess:  your favorite part of Argo was the end credits sequence with the vintage Early Bird kit and X-Wing, right?

That actually WAS my favorite part of that movie!

I'll take Muppets over CGI any day of the week.

That contest sounds like a cool idea, I'll definitely throw them $10.
