Looks like EE is the place to go to order these because that 2 pack with the ARC trooper is going to be hard to find. :-\

I am ALL OVER this set. Wow. I LOVE them! I want several of the Obi-Wan/ARC sets just to replace the crappy ARC Trooper sculpt from the Clone Wars line.

Crap.  It's hard to believe how good the "new" stuff for 2007 is looking so far.  It's going to be a very expensive year...

Vos/Vilmarh - probably want 3-4 of these... several for customs...

Obi Wan/ARC - I'll take a few of this too... mostly for Obi Wan actually

The G9 R2 would be in weird colors, I'm still picking all 3 sets up though.

****** A. Now this **** is where it's at.

The Alpha figure rocks unholy hell--I just hope the articulation is good. Kenobi looks great too. I think they're trying to duplicate the wet hair from the Jabiim comic. Villie and Quin are pretty sweet as well.

This is the only toy I've been genuinely excited for in months. I'm all over it like slime on a Hutt.

Big yawn on Luke/R2, though.

Looking them over closely, I see Super Articulation in the Obi/Alpha set and less in the Villie/Quinlon Vos set...  The legs look like less articulation.  That said, these are priced right, so it's less of a gripe of mine, but man the sculpts rock all and the Obi/Alpha set is fantastic...

If I could find someone to buy all the other sets I don't want I'd order a case straight away...  Great looking EU figures though there.  The ARC/Obi set is just amazing...  I had hoped the quality on these sets would be super high like the Crimson Empire set...  Looks like that's what we're getting.  And I'm hoping the articulation on the legs of Vos & Co. is better than my eyes say...  The arms are SA though on both I believe.  Fantastic.

I'll take Voss and the Devaronian guy.  Mainly for the Devaronian to be honest.
I want that Kenobie and ARC Trooper mainly for an SA Ep2 Kenobi.

That ARC Trooper looks amazing, as does Kenobi.  I'm definitely going to pick up one of those.  The Kenobi in particular is a seemingly perfect example to me of a great repaint/retool.  It looks like the only truly new parts are the arms and head, with the cloak apparently from the Episode I Naboo Obi-Wan with some burn/mud damage, and the torso and legs from the ROTS Pilot Obi-Wan.  I might even get more than one of these and do a head swap onto a Pilot Obi-Wan for an SA AOTC Obi-Wan. 

Luke looks great as well, but would look even better if, you know, he were all white instead of day-glo eyesore blue.  It looks like they finally used the R4-G9 mold for R2-D2, but, like the Han and Luke STs, they screwed it up by adding random paint applications.  Why they don't just do a SWS.com exclusive "Death Star Escape" multi pack with Han ST, Luke ST, Tin Chewie with no snow and a big ass rifle, a modified VOTC Leia with balljointed elbows, and a few VOTC Stormies is beyond me.

I know I'm going to incur the anger of many here, but Vos is a pass for me.  If they'd done him in his Jedi robes, then I probably would have picked it up.  As it is, though, he's in his superhero garb, so all of you guys who have been wanting one will have one more on the pegs for yourselves.

I don't think they did--his undercarriage (is that a proper descriptor?  His "bathing suit area," maybe?) looks the same as the VOTC sculpt's, with the plug-in third leg and all.

Good looking sets, I don't think there's a looser in the bunch. Even the R2 can be used as a different droid.
