I've got to add this to my potential list of great army builders...



I want no less than 20... 10 for display and many for custom fodder.  What a great looking figure.

 :)


edit - just stopping by to shrink the picture, it was just a tad too large... Jeff

For a failed TIE Pilot, that's a pretty sweet figure. 8) I hope to get quite a few. Say, did anyone else notice that his armor is on backwards? ::)

Too bad the photographer of this source photo didn't know how to armor the figure properly.  ::)

That boba fett looks mighty tasty.  I wonder how many little kiddies will take those into their mouths.  I know my niece has tried more than once with the blue ones.

With the Endor wave just around the corner... I am wondering how long it will be before we are talking about the Death Star Gunner as a great army builder... that figure just looks so sweet.

Neimoidian Commander looks better with silver armor and the CIS symbol painted on.

Either the Utapua Clone or VOTC Stormie.If they did an SA 501st figure that would be ultimate.The DS Gunner that's coming out later isn't as exciting as troopers but I'll build that too. :P

Top 5 army builders ever, in no particular order:

1.  SA EIII clone 41 (and all it's paint variants: shock, utapau, gree etc.)

2.  VOTC stormie (and Tatooine Saga sandie obviously)

3.  VTSC scout

4.  Preview Wookiee (and EIII heavy gunner paint variant)

5.  Evolutions 327th Star Corps Felucia grunt

Gotta give the Saga AT AT driver props too.

That's the perfect list, except for the wookiee wouldn't be in there (not trying to make you cry or anything ;))

I disagree. With the pauldron one, they helmet leaves the chin exposed and that is bad.

I agree on The SA # 41, and the VOTC Scout, but I dunno, about the Stromtroppers as I do not have any. I like the Comtech/Imperial forces one, as the have the "death throws" and "Guard at the ready" poses I need for my Bespin set up.

Dressel's list is close to what I'd probably go with too...  I'd have the Stormtrooper take the #1 slot.  It's simply "perfect" to me, or as close as Hasbro's ever likely to acheive, and it's a shame this figure isn't widely available to fans at a good price at all times.

I'd say the E2 and E3 SA Clones would make the list...  They're great.  VTSC Scout...  And I'd leave the WOokiee simply because you're getting not only great figure quality, but you're getting a LOT of figure with it.

While I'd love to slip the Evolutions figures in there too, I'm reluctant to have them take over any other figure's slot.  The E2 and E3 Clones are basics so they're theoretically less expensive...  The VOTC Stormtrooper gets #1 to me because it's OT...  The Wookiee was just simply great.  That's a figure I'd buy again and again in as many fur colors as Hasbro wanted to put out there.  I'd dig a black one with grey stripes right now, and a cream colored one.

I'd dig some new gear for them though...  Namely the ammo harness and a new/good bowcaster and Wookiee "Long Gun".

My list of top 10 would be:
1.Utapua Clone Trooper/VOTC Stormtrooper
2.VTSC Biker Scout
3.501st Trooper (Like I said before they need to release an SA one so these guys can be #1)
4.Shocktrooper
5.Sandtrooper (TSC)
6.Security Battle Droid
7.White ROTS Clone (SA)
8.AOTC Clones (SA)
9.AT-AT Driver
10.Galactic Marine (If it's SA)
