So far, Vos doesnt look too great, Im a little concerned. Villie too.

Alpha and Obi-Wan on the other hand look awesome!

I cant wait to pick these up, and I cant wait to see more of Mara Jade, Dark Woman, ASharad, and the rumored Duro Stormtrooper!

I got these finally Saturday.

Voss/Villie-- articulation is waste-up only. I actually like the paint apps and sculpts alot- besides it's the
                 first time I got these anyway-I don't really expect Hasbro to do a first time figure correctly
                 (they stand to make more $ by not) anyway. Vos' skirt is awesome it's really flexible so he
                 can pilot ships easily-nice touch. Villie- kudos to Hasbro by not just using a labria repainting
                 him and calling him Villie(I wouldn't put it past them either, but I'm glad they didn't).

Obi/Alpha-- The jewel of the wave. Both figures are SAC. For a first time figure Alpha is really done well
                 -though I guess this was an easier first-time fig for Hasbro since it's a clone ::). The torn
                 /worn skirt really looks great-gives a blowing in the wind effect-nice accessory as well with
                 arm communication thingy added and oversized shoulder pad. Obi-wan=awesome but not
                 quite perfect. He cannot hold the lightsaber with 2 hands, and his cloak really takes away
                 from his SAC. it 'looks' like the cloak could be removed in some way but, even if you do then
                 now you still have permanent 'cloak' arms on him. He has a great sculpt, head sculpt is new
                 too (I really like it). Really good touch as well with the soft goods underskirt-- we caught
                 JediMac looking under it at our SOCAL lunch get together :-X!

Luke/R2--   Nice repaints I guess. I didn't realize Luke was really basically a VOTC stormie with Luke head
                sculpt added on. Oh, and another R2 ::).

* I really like the value we get out of these sets, I recall in the beginning I was irritated about the line
   especially with the announced first wave, but now that we're past the repacks(last one luke/r2) I'm
   really stoked about this 'line' after all. Brand new sculpts-some SAC even, 2 figures AND a comic book
   (that I already have but no matter) for good value. I was concerned about price increase when the new
   figs started but I'm glad they didn't increase it!

Anyone else more than a little mildly disturbed by the fudge-y stain that's somewhat, er, strategically located?  Clones getting a little friendly?   I mean honestly, there's only a couple of explanations for that:

1. dropped a burger in my lap at lunch and didn't have time to clean
2. I had an itch and there was only this rotting tree stump to rub up against
3.  :-X

My theory...  During hand-to-hand combat he slammed someone's face off his crotch armor after he knocked them down, knocking them out and making it embarassing looking on holo-recordings too.

I've yet to see hide nor hair of Comic packs on the pegs since the first wave were wiped out of most stores near me.  WM doesn't even have pegs for them at most stores I've noticed.

I've had no luck finding these, but I keep hearing multiple reports of people finding them at TRU's.  Hopefully they will make their way to Target stores soon!

I got my sets yesterday. I think Vos could have been a little better and that the R2 looked better in the pictures, but still better than the first wave.

Anyone gonna get the Luke/R2 set just because the R2 is so wildly different that he'll make a good "random" astromech?

I'm pondering doing this and selling the Luke.  I have no desire for these Marvel packs otherwise.

Yep, yep.

I don't mind the Marvel stuff so much, so it's a good buy for me.

Yeah, this is pretty much the only reason I'm getting this one.  I love astromechs and this one put me over the top.
