Did he even fly a B-wing in the movies?
I believe he is seen in the Rebel Briefing scene as wearing the B-Wing Pilot gear

Update: it came today, and the boil and pop worked perfectly. I boiled one for about 15 minutes and the arm slid right out and into the old one. I think boiling it for an extra long time helped out - if anyone ever tries this, go carefully, but it is possible. I have seen the promiseland.
there's only one set that looks like I'd want to army build - the Battle Droid set.
Hasbro said that the new BD sculpt there will definitely be carried forward - you can expect to see it again in many colors/deco in future box sets/cards/etc.
I'm conflicted about this. While it's a nice upgrade, Hasbro can do better. All they did was add ball joints to the shoulders and hips.
In addition to the shoulders and hips they put joints in the ankle, as well as bringing together many features from many different figures. (articulated arms, knees, retracting head, etc.) I will say that the apparent lack of a two handed grip is a letdown. IG-88 proves that Hasbro can make droids with thin limbs SA. It's not a deal breaker, as I think the CW Battle Droid is fine, but it sure isn't great either.
Well, I officially have one with just a left arm and one with just a right arm now. At the very least, I can pry apart one of them, but the trick will be getting it to fit peacefully into the other one. Maybe if I buy it a few drinks first. The worst I'd do is waste the money on the one I just got, really, which I'd rather not do.
Anyone ever make this fix before?
I know the NFL team in Chicago is Da Bears
That play in a building that looks like a UFO!
Thanks Jason! That's very helpful as well.
As for Boystown, we're familiar with the concept, and it doesn't bother us at all. In fact, while we were apartment hunting the other week, the parade was going on.
We're very into the arts as well and it's one of the reasons Chicago tops our list. My girlfriend is entering year three of her PhD program at the University of Michigan for Art History. When she's done she'll either be teaching or working in museums and we know that Chicago is full of them. She's been there lots of times, I've only been the one time a few weeks ago and the entire trip was spent apartment hunting. So I've got plenty of exploring to do... 19 short days until the truck comes.
I started packing the toys up today.
Thanks for the breakdown of repacks.
Unfortunately for me, Wave 6 is actually the scarcest one here. Which, of course, has the Hoth Rebel in it. Go figure.
The Wave 7 figures have now hit several WM stores, but Target's not ordering jack and or squat. Target gets nothing new, ever. WM it's hit and miss, as WM is.
I've seen this wave at 4 different stores though as of this weekend. Better than Wave 6, by far.
To keep it on topic...
Anyone else NEVER find the last wave of comic packs at all? I never saw Wedge/Borsk Fey Lya anywhere, though I did manage to see one Deena/Luke, and one Hett/Mundi pack. Only one of each, but never that 3rd set. I was curious if this was a nationwide thing, or if you guys saw them in abundance like Wave 6, and 7, while the Pittsburgh area again seemed to be this anomylous black hole of SW ****.
It think they breakout like this:
Spacetrooper - Right Arm
Hoth Rebel Trooper - Left Arm
Clone Pilot - Left Leg
Anakin Skywalker (EII Evo) - Head & blaster
ARC Trooper - Right Leg
Jango Fett - Torso
I wonder if his girthiness will prevent Hasbro from reusing the mold for Vong army building fans? They're wishy washy about big figures for some reason. I know I'd like a ton of the new SA Dark Trooper build-a-droid we're getting, and I'm not even an overly big fan of NJO but I'd army build the Vong, especially if they redecoed him or did minor retooling tweaks to a limb or head here and there.
They're just odd about big figures though... I like it though, and think it looks incredible.
