I ended up getting a shipping notice on Monday - expecting mine to arrive sometime next week.

I got a shipping notice from BBTS as well, so it should be here sometime this week.  Good timing I guess, since it has been a bit of a dry spell around here at retail for Star Wars, at least until the BARC/Elite Corps trooper wave starts hitting.

I actually received mine today in the mail.
I really like the 'new' guys...
all the tarkins were less than great though as the head molds never had the 'extra skin' cleaned up on the heads so they appear like they have ear to ear mohawks ::). Then, Hasbro painted over this :P.

Got mine yesterday (Paul if you're reading this it means I have yours too).  Even though it needs bending knee joints and a different Tarkin Sculpt, it's a great set.

Popped this set open last night. I can't get over how nice the headsculpts came out on the new characters, top notch. Overall, I'm very pleased.

I'm scared to open mine - I have a feeling I'll like them better better in the box rather than loose on my shelf. 

It's a great looking boxed set.

The set actually looks awesome if you take it out of the box but keep the cardboard insert backing.  I then removed the plastic piece and set up the figures and they look great in that.  I'll try to post a pic or two if possible.

Has anyone mentioned or noticed that Motti's Rank is colored differently than his carded release? On one his rank has three red pips, the other has only two red ones.

I love the head sculpts on this set.  I would have liked  a hat or two, but all in all a good set.  And this despite the fact that there is no Knee Articulation.

I got my set lined up from a friend, so I'm now set on these.  Yay.
