I don't mind. I'll probably be getting multiples anyway, for customs.

If they had fixed the cape (to hang like a normal royal guards,) I'd pick multiples up to replace my ROTS ones.

We've got a new pic up of the Republic #79 Comic Pack that includes a Galactic Marine (All White Deco).  Check out the Marine below:


Clicky Image for the story on the front page.

Pretty spiffy repaint...  Commander Keller's the real gem of the set, a much different figure, but the Marine's nice and an army builder's dream I think if you're into EU.  I'd like a couple extras myself, but don't know that I want all the extra Keller figures.

Yeah, but he still ain't gonna be able ta stand. :P

Seriously though, I think I figured it out. It's just funny that the mold has an inherent balance problem.

Both my TAC and O66 figures seem to stand okay as well.  ;)

I have no problem with my Marine figures standing on their own.
I remember my dream now.

That's so funny because of the 5 I've opened, plus the Order 66 one, I have to either hunch the figures over or put them in walking position to get them to stand erect. ???

Maybe you should try to stand them without an erection.  ;)

All of my Marines stand at attention just fine and without the need for Viagra or Cialis...

Luke and Han Stormtroopers to be repacked SANS blue deco! These will still come with the same other figure that can in their resepctive packs, however the blue deco has been taken away to give us the white versions we clamored for!

Here's a pic:



Sorry I know it's Scum... Only place I've seen report it so far though.

That is a must have.  I'm going to need a new SW room just for comic packs...

Well, those are just head-swaps done for fun, right? :) 

You can always link to Entertainment Earth-- after all, that's who broke the story and who is offering these fine items for sale.  :D   (Hey, it's late, I'm tired, I can be a little snotty.)   We/they/whatever posted exactly what Hasbro said-- "no blue deco."   It might mean movie versions, or it might mean red-eyed versions without the blue.  After all, Hasbro changed Darth Vader from that bright blue to a much more subdued hue.   As always, we don't know what it REALLY is until official images are posted, and by official images, I mean interesting pictures from eBay China.  My money is on movie-ish versions, but you never know...

Movie versions seem like the next logical step. Less people would skip out on the pack that way.

I knew they were gonna do movie versions, they just wanted to get all of the money they could from the customizers who had to buy two comic packs and two stormtroopers to get accurate movie versions. Now they'll be making money off of the people who waited (like me) and get the two comic packs for the accurate versions.
