No sign of these yet, or any Comic Packs for that matter. These were common all over around February/March but all were sold and never restocked. The pegs marked for them hold Titaniums, Galactic Heroes, and Basic Figs. I hope Wave 2 is able to come in, because these figures look great.

So basically a ton of people want R2 and not Luke...  So a flood of Luke's on the market? :)  Great.

I've picked these all up now.  This is one great sub-set.  I'm really liking the figs, and enjoying reading the comics without spending for them.  However, what's with Obi-Wan's wrestling mask?

Yeah, I know...it's a Sith mask or something.  It's not mentioned in the issue of the comic he's packed with.  Odd.
But i'm loving the figs.  Even Luke.

It really is not too hard to remove the blue areas from Han and Luke's armor to make movie accurate versions

I'd rather have the Luke's and not the R2.  If anyone wants to split packs and trade, lemme know.

Found these today and was able to resist picking up an opener set of the Quinlan Vos. Love the other two sets.

Indeed, paint removal on figures has various techniques...  I just wiped some Appo pauldrons to a clean black to make some "officers" for my Engineers, maybe others too.  I gotta find a use for the plethora of these things I've accumulated.

J-Man if you decide to sell some R2's let me know.  I'm all ears on that.  I really have no desire for that set other than for odd looking astromechs like I noted, so just PM me if you want.

My son and I already modified his Alpha trooper's T. sensor so that it flips up and down. We broke off a piece of paperclip that has the white plastic coating on it, widened some holes with a safety pin, used supeglue and ..good to go!

Kinda hard for Dad working with sloth-fat fingers and all but we made it work and it looks good!

Cool, now one of us just needs to find a few comic packs... ;)

Yeah, I'm more interested in Luke than R2, but if I have to, I'll keep the R2.

I've had mixed results trying that.  Are you using Goof-Off or something else?

Though I've yet to try this on Luke stormie or Han, with a little patience, steady hand, and a sharp exacto I just about removed all the factory paint on the legion markings for the Cody's and Airborne troops that I have then you kind of just go over it with run of the mill paint remover and it leaves it pretty clean.  Beats layer after layer of white paint over that orange.

Not so odd ... the issue that he's packed with is only the first in a story arc of four issues. The Sith torture mask shows up later.
