For $110, I need it to look better than that. That's my Medicom price point. Hopefully some fool will flood the ebay market with these and they can be had for $60 or less.

As for what I would pick, submitted expecting some backlash, representing my favorite genres.
Torture Killer's - "Swarm!"
This was a much needed return to straight up DEATH METAL. Track listings, song material, the looks, everything. Death metal has lost its roots, and this is the way back.
Thanks for the great recommendation!
I picked this up yesterday and it's as good as you claimed!
I'm glad you liked it! I kind of forgot to mention, if the voice sounds familiar, it's Chris Barnes from Six Feet Under.
I really wish this line wasn't as much a collectible focused line but rather just a more easily obtainable line. I'd love to not only collect and play the game (I'd play old style minis battles though, not the new rules which I find lacking), but to really do something special with building battlefields and everything for the minis like small dioramas. When a mini you want sells for $25 though I just have a hard time justifying it. I keep up with the line just reading up on it but I just can't collect it.
Hey, it's no secret that this line isn't the most popular Star Wars collectable out there. I am curious as to what other collectors who aren't into them think of them. Opinions?
I don't really understand that statement since the way I read it, it sounds like your asking the Q to folks then answering for them with a statement in the beginning.
Even though you asked 'only to collectors who aren't into them'- I am into them and I just want to answer here to provide insight.
These WOTC miniature pieces are 'gaming market' first and ' collectible market' second. What this means is that I can definately tell you that this is very popular in the gaming community. My brother and myself have visited several sites where these pieces are traded, swapped, sold and the games themselves played online. Not to mention all the 'gaming nights' at local comic books/gaming stores. These aren't nearly as popular with the SW collectible community. Here at JD it is primarily a SW collectible community and..as you can see and not surprisingly, there certainly isn't a large representative number of folks posting about SW Miniatures in here.
Myself I like these for 2 reasons ..I think they're cool looking(I'd argue better and certainly more variety than the 'unleashed battle packs') and I also love to play the game(my brother and nephew finally beat me last month and now I'm 22-1 against them). The game itself is not complicated if you don't care about winning/losing. If you like to win though, there is tons of stategy possibilities with these sets. What I like is how WOTC effectively utilizes the SW story to introduce stategy elements to the gameplay-- they do their research from the Saga AND from comic books and novels for EU pieces. This creates alot of fun and replayability win or lose.
I believe that Amount of different sets that are out and the fact that even more are announced help me to understand how popular these are. I rarely see the boosters 'sitting' in stores--when I do, they are not there the next week. For instance, I know a couple Hobby stores in my area that typically get 30 boosters right at the initialization of a new line and sell 20 in the first couple days then are sold out in less than a week. While a typical 'booster' pack will be 15-20$, Ebay rates for VR's can be 20-50$..for just a single piece!
They are very popular though and being as this is a SW collectible site these sets simply aren't gone gen-up alot of feedback here. I think with all the Sw collectible product on the market these days it certainly has alot of folks 'scaling back' --I definately can see an effect here on this thread. Gone are the typical non-movie year days .
I still don't understand how you can ask that Q though.... Think about it...you're asking folks who aren't into them to tell you what they think of them. ?!
Are you trying to gen-up a 'con' response? With a Q like that..my guess is you'll get only negative responses. Did you want this?

Ah , good ol' NYC. They have a HUGE (3 floors....like 3 regular stores in one!) , it's great for finding rare , and easy to find figures.when I say great...I mean GREAT!
hope you have a good time , when you come here.
whoohoo! I just pulled a Veers... from my friendly neighborhood collectible store!!!
Went for a kubrick run at lunch today. I didn't get a box of 12 because in this series i was only interested in the TIE pilot and X-wing luke, but when I got to the store they had a brand new box of 12 that hasn't been touched. Thanks to all of you who posted the locations of the chases and regular figures, led me right to the death star trooper with the Veers inside. I love this community~!
Pics to come tonight when I get off work.
