I mean, really, didn't Scruffy get paid to clean the halls of the Tantive IV?  Or was he too busy looking at "Zero-G Juggs" to clean up that day? :)

Your Futurama reference wasn't lost on me.  ;D

Ok 2 things for me that detract...but I will be getting one of the Battle Packs, so know that going in...

1.  The pitiful small and underscaled blaster the RFT's come with.  Please Destroy that mold and start giving us either a new sculpt or the one that came with Antilles/Gold 5/Dodonna/Saga2 Endor Rebels.

2.  Is that an interogation droid sitting at Vader's left shoulder or am I seeing things?

I am excited to get 2 SA Stormies (if they look like the ones on the back, less so like in the package, but I will get them just the same) and if the RFT's have removable helmets, at least I'll have a few more of those without buying up loose Capt. Antilles at shows.

I'm glad someone else mentioned that.  I'm kind of curious about that piece being included as well.

It's pretty much the set that I expected, minus the paintjob on the Stormtroopers.  I certainly didn't expect greatness from this set.  And is it me, or is that the POTF2 CommTech Vader?

Not pleased about the dirty stormies. >:( What did they accidently raid the sewage freighter first?

Another nail in the Hasbro coffin for me.  No need for this, unless the 2007 DVD ultimate set has sandtroopers storming the Tantive.  Revisionist history, yeah baby. ::)

I was expecting clean Stormies. Pass on it now.

Totally!   One of my fondest SW memories is from when my dad took me to see it for the first time during the re-release in 79 (?)- when the stormtroopers broke into the Tantive and Vader came out- it was scary for a 4 yr old!   And I distinctly remember the stormtroopers been shiny white!   Not sandy... what is WITH that?

Even if the worst thing about the stormtroopers is the dirt, the saving grace will be if the dirt can come off ala the Sandtrooper. However, if dirt is on the face, that could be a problem.

Not especially, though it did snow a buttload yesterday, so that was no fun.  More just an honest assessment of what I'm seeing from Hasbro.  Rather than being my usual verbose self, I opted for efficiency.   ;)

I have to agree Hasbro is putting out a lot of crap lately.  It is like a seasonal ****storm.

Let me guess the basic stormie will be dirty. :(

I was thinking about this and the dirty troopers.  I have to admit that if I had to walk out into that hallway of the Tantive IV, I would have probably crapped my armor too.  I mean, that was an intense and deadly moment in Star Wars history and perhaps Hasbro is making sure we all know that. :P

If there was blast damage, I could maybe give it a pass, but all out roll in the mud dirt, come on.
