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.
