That stormtrooper is something else... If the blue/gray are shading/lighting highlights, how do you get a stark white belt?

It's like the sandtroopers gleaming white shoes with dirty legs, torso, arms, and head- APPLY THE SPECIALTY PAINT APS AFTER ASSEMBLY!! (end of rant)

It is, until the SA CW Clones it was my favorite figure ever he's been pushed so far down now.
Those sets are scary, they are so scar no one is going to pick those up.

Found these at TRU tonight. Whatever look they were going for on the Stormtroopers, they missed.

I had hoped they'd look better in person, but they're every bit as terrible as the pics we've seen make them look.

I had them all in my cart this morning at TRU and then I put the Vader/Trooper pack back and then I put Green Tarkin and the absolutely asinine red/white/blue Stormtrooper and then I finally put Chewie/Han back.  Han is a great figure, using the SA Stormie body but I just hate the paint and don't want to spend the time to customize.  I'll wait for the eventual rerelease.  They are a good idea but the comic likenesses bite major stinky ass

To be honest, I'm more interested in the comics than I am in the figures. :P

The Han is fantasic though. Can't wait for a non-comic release.

I picked these up the other day, but can't bring myself to open them.  Don't get me wrong, I really LIKE these oddballs, but they look so great on the card that I may not open them.  This is really tough for me, because I open everything!  Any wisdom?

I'm happily passing on all the sets...  I'd take a Tarkin if I was offered one loose but I wont' buy a set for it.  If it's not a realistic likeness I'm not interested anymore...  The animated CW figures were cute, but I passed because I wanted the non-animated, and these fall into a similar category for me.  I'm happy to save the $$$ instead of picking these up.

NOw, the new figures coming in some sets...  Those I'm looking forward to.  Even if some of the comics they're from suck, I am still interested.  The Crimson Empire set was really well made so I'm hoping the figures in the other "new" comics are of similar quality.
