All 23 droids have been sent off. I will be going again next week since I still owe Dave an extra one. PM me if you need anything else there.

Let the bitching begin continue (for multiple reasons)  :o

Great find!  Finally the hunt begins!   ;D
I saw that over at the FISD forums when Anovos started giving a 10% off code when you purchased a Stormtrooper armor kit.  People would register with the site just so they could beg for a coupon.

Some people have no shame.

So I bought a Xbox One just for Battlefront last week, and finally got it hooked up to Live over the weekend and have been playing essentially ever since haha.

It takes some time to get used to since this isn't like every other first person shooter... the weapons have unlimited ammo but you can only fire a certain amount before the guns overheat. It's essentially a "run and gun" game and you can't really hide and camp anywhere, instead having to use cover to recharge and regroup.

It's also more fun if you have friends playing... I've been playing rounds with a group of people from another forum I post on and various modes are a lot more fun when you can travel in packs, defend each other, and warn everybody else where enemies are coming from over the microphone.

My favorite mode is probably "Walker Assault" where the Rebels have to destroy AT-AT walkers.

I'd say play until you get to Level 15, as you unlock a "Scout" trait which hides your movements from the radar. In addition, all the better weapons begin to unlock like that rifle Boba Fett uses. I bought the Deluxe edition so I'm using the DL-44 since I find myself in close quarters most of the time, and it's designed as a 1-2 shot kill weapon. I'd prefer to stay back and snipe but it's pretty tough to do so.

Also when playing as heroes, pick ANYONE but Palpatine. Quite possibly the worst character in the game. He only uses Force Lightning as a weapon, and it's good against groups of enemies in hallways but other than that he's defenseless and worthless.

And yes, it's largely co-op and single player is virtually non-existent unless you want to play against the computer. I agree with Jesse that they need to add more maps soon. The ones they have now aren't bad, but they will get old very quickly. Another gripe... I wish you could select the map yourself or vote on it ala Halo. Everything is randomly selected in game, and if you were a Rebel the first mission, you're Imperial the next, and vice versa.

Got my Vader and Stormtrooper from HLJ yesterday after letting them sit in the Private Warehouse for close to 2 months. Haven't opened them yet (and probably won't for a while) but it's kinda funny how delayed these were because they come in the old Rebels packaging from last year.

Vader has a bunch of accessories (4 sets of hands - "can hold a lightsaber", open, fist, and "Force choke") but the plastic looks... cheap? The figure is way too shiny in parts of the costume that shouldn't be shiny. The Stormtrooper looks like it could rival the SH Figuarts version although he just comes with the E-11 blaster. I wish more Stormtrooper figures came with the bigger rifle, only the Hasbro and Revoltech versions do.

Maybe, just MAYBE, during the holidays I'll take some comparison shots. Laziness and all. :P

Vader is up for order but I am seriously conflicted about continuing on with this line. I don't see any end in sight and space is a real issue now.

Collector conundrum!
