The first wave of the final 22 started hitting pegs around me this weekend...  just in time for the toy show too.  I don't recall off-hand a single dealer with them though, that's good. :)  Though a local buddy of mine brought what he picked up before the show!  So I left the show Saturday with a Clone Sergeant and a 5th Fleet Security figure...  Could've nabbed the SBD repaint but I had to watch my dough.

The battledroids look good to me...  I know, I know, it's not all your cup of tea to get repaints, but a tigerstripe repaint of battledroids makes sense to me so I'm ok with it...  I won't go ape**** army building them, but I'll nab a little camo squad of them, sure....  So long as the plastic's at least half assed anyway.

The clones are fantastic...  again the paintjobs may be deterring some from purchases but for me the clone repaints rock, and the Sergeant was a happy addition since I could use more of the E2 styled Clones, especially white ones...  Sergeants next though so I like having the chance to pick him up again in some bulk.

Hell it'd just be nice to have more sergeants than Commanders at this point...  Anyone else find that a bit annoying when you've got more Yellow Clones than the grunts and non-coms?  Maybe I'm just too anal about this. :)

Anyway, what I've got so far is good...  I'm quite happy and the Security one's paint is really crisp and has rockin' battle damage.  Maybe some of the best on any Clone really.  It just seems cooler.

After picking up the entire set, I have to say that some of the figures look sharper in person. For example, Kit looks just as good as his CW version. I thought that by the pictures that his paint application was slightly different. Also, for some reason, the Battle Droids don't look as annoying.

It's funny though, I say that and then I opened them. I don't think the sculpt used was the best available. I would have prefered the Saga/ROTS sculpt.

After having a chance to play with the new clone repaint's, I have to say how much of a sucker I am. I kind of like them, but I think it has to do with the fact that they're on the #41 bodies. Anything else and I'd probably having a hissy fit.

Anyone know the case breakdown?  I saw a ton of these while out of town today but there were no Super or regular Battle Droids.  Picked up a couple of the Security Clones and spotted another half dozen.  Saw no other Clones but a few Kits and Chewies.

This is how the case I scored yesterday broke down:

1 x Darth Maul
1 x Chewbacca
1 x Kit Fisto
1 x Holo Commander Cody
1 x Imperial R5
1 x Clone Trooper Sergeant (AOTC)
1 x Camo Super Battle Droid
1 x Battle Droid 2-pack
2 x 442nd Siege Battalion Clone Troopers
2 x 5th Fleet Security Clone Troopers

Mind you there was one piece missing from the case, and it appears to have been the Clone Trooper Sergeant.
