I don't know....
On the issue of painting quality in WOTC minis, I'd have to say I'm more torn then ever.
I just purchased 5 boxes of these and some like the Boba Fett and Yuzzan Vong look awesome while many others looked poor like the Aurra-Sing and Luke. Even the DST looked horrible as well-despite his poor paint job, he had extra plastic sticking up on his helm that wasn't removed by a sculptor and instead painted over as well--lame
Then again, I saw some that Matt had and they looked decent. Well, since I only have 35 figures, I'll withhold judgement for now. From what I've seen so far, there's a drop in paint quality over the other WOTC SW lines.
