Well honestly no matter what they would have done with these 2 packs there would be bitching. If they repacked 2 movie figures like evolutions Anakin and 501 st trooper, Pilot Kenobi and Utapau Trooper, Mace and white clonetrooper with grey shouldder then the cry would have been "They are charging us $13 for figures we already have. Die Hasbro Die!!!" You know?
I don't think that's the case at all. Take a look at this potential compared to what they're dumping on us:Obi Wan/Utapau clone trooper
: SA pilot Obi Wan
vs. the slashing one.Evolutions 327th star corps trooper
w/ removable helmet in Utapau paint scheme sans the kama vs. the nonsense EU AT RT driver.Anakin/501st
:Evolutions EIII Anakin
vs. the crappy EIII basic versionEvolutions 327th star corps trooper
w/ removable helmet in 501st paint scheme sans the kama vs. the nonsense EU scheme airborne trooper.Mace/Galactic Marine
Should have been abolished altogether, makes no sense.
But they could have used the upcoming 30 AC SA Mace
instead of that stunted abomination they gave us on the EIII basic card, and maybe the movie paint scheme Galactic Marine.
I give praise where praise is due, look at my posts. But these sets really suck. If they used something along the line of what I dreamt up above, I'd have bought multiple of each, like 2-5 of each depending on the pack.
Instead, I'm buying none of it. And I'm as diehard of an army builder as army builders come. I've got 50-100 of most of the well thought out, nicely sculpted, nicely articulated, movie trooper figures like the VOTC stormie, VTSC scout, wookie warrior preview etc.
Jesse can tell me to put it up my ass, and that's fine, that's his issue. But I'm going to say this anyway: If you buy this garbage, you'll buy anything with a Star Wars logo on the package, because these are low effort, nonsensical items with poorly selected sculpts.
