Straight out of the Marvel comics with the funky color schemes, I like it. Best to use the not so good sculpts on weird paint schemes, I think. POTJ Chewie - blah! POTJ RFT - double blah! Still I'll be picking these up, represent the Marvel love.  :-*

For whatever reason, I like the Han/Chewie one a lot.  I want several.

Tarkin/Stormie - I'll take one.

Vader/Fleet Trooper - I'll laugh at anyone who buys it.   ;)

I'll probably pick up only the Han and Chewie set and hope Han isn't painted blue and he's a few paint dabs away from being what everyone here wanted...an SA Han Stormie

Chewie can get stuck in the Kashyyyk Scene

The thing that strikes me as amusing (well, besides all six of the figures even being made in the first place; who really demanded Marvel Comics figures anyway?) is that the Tarkin seems to have a new head sculpt in this two-pack, but the one in the Officers box set has the ROTS head sculpt.  Weird.

The Han doesn't look that bad, unless the bluish tint is actually on the figure and not a camera effect.  Chewie (the Wookiee, not the customizer) looks like he just stepped out of his "Memoirs of a Geisha" audition failure. 

The more I look at that Vader/RFT two pack, the more I think that Hasbro just won a lawsuit to get their day-glo license back from Mattel's acquisition of the Batman license a few years ago and they're wanting to exploit the hell out of it.   ;D

It's kinda weird, they went with using a VOTC Stormie for Han that required a bit of retooling. But for the Stormie with Tarkin, they fell back to the Commtech Stormie. What gives there? I'm sure these are only first shots and so they have time to fall back and change things up, but this does seem odd.

Not only do they think he won't sell, they actually made a point to make fun of your effort on top of it.

LOL

Holy geez, that's amazing.

Wow, a Tarkin in a KOTOR officer uniform. I like it though, so I'll get one. Han and Chewie is actually a great set, Chewie can be placed as some random wookiee, and we can repaint the Han if needed. But Day-Glo RFT and Vader? Pass.

The Stormie Han/Chewie Comic Pack is growing on me, I love the use of the SA VOTC body on Han, and I don't yet have any kind of Chewbacca. I like how, like the GI Joe Comic Packs, we get reprints of the EU Comic of which the figures are in. Cool that it's the early '77 comics that are reprinted. I also am liking the Kanos/Jax Comic Pack, hopefully I'll be able to nab one before they inevitably sell out. I'm curious to see the Obi-Wan/Alpha Comic Pack, I wonder if they'll use a pre-existing body, or a new sculpt.

I do not know if it is just me but that RFT gives me homocidal tendencies. :-X

And the smiling Chewbacca chaps my ass, do not know why, he just does.

Yeah, comic book two-packs - nice to see something new in the line...



Oops... there's that dreaded comparison back to the huge EU flop SOTE again.   :P


Anyway, I was holding back judgement until I saw these and now... not so impressed.

I can't get past the ugly "red eyes" on the stormtrooper.  I hope the body of Han is regular enough that I can just swap a different Stormie helmet on him.  Otherwise, I hate that RFT paint job and Tarkin's outfit sucks too.   :-\
