Pickup the WM exclusives **R4-M6, Aurra Sing, Labria, Kitik, & Nabrun & Leeds** the other day.  But I still haven't seen any of the other "final 22" figures.

The completionist in me had taken over this weekend as I picked clone repaints Appo,Elite Corp and the 442nd. I also picked up Padme but mostly for parts. This figure sucks bad. She can not stand straight on she has to be turned to the side or else she is in a very akward pose. Her stand is Empire Strikes Back.

Just another note regarding the typos on the back of the Darth Vader droid- my case from EE came with the misprint "Dark Vader" and the line about "new the sith lord." The one I had found in the store had Darth corrected, but not the rest.

Here's a loose pic of my two Appo figures - one with the pauldron, one without in case anyone's wondering what they look like opened up.



When the other version comes out, I know I am going to be tight on my Star Wars budget, so I plan on army building this one provided I can find them.

Got Kitik the other day, as this was the only one I wanted from the Final 22.  I thought it was great that Hasbro released this one on card after the cantina section fiasco.

The ankle joints on all of mine are blue also.

One of my local WMs got five of the long cases earlier this week, and promptly threw the boxes themselves out so they could shove the figures onto the already Jerjerrod infested pegs.  Naturally, the "new" stuff is moving more quickly, with the Vader already back to his pre-holiday pegwarmer status.  Labria seems to be sitting longer than the others, with Aurra Sing (for some ungodly reason) and the Mace Astromech being the quicker sellers.  I wound up getting the Nabrun Lieds/Kabe two pack as I really liked the paintjob on Lieds, but Labria just flat out sucks. 

I'd really like to know who made the decision to haul that mold out of the attic and repaint it when there are several other Cantina aliens who are much more compatible with present-day aesthetics who would have been better choices (Myo, Trevagg, and Jerriko, for example).

Still no sign of Wave 9 (?) around here, though.  TRU got a couple of cases a few weeks back, but neither Target nor Wal-Mart have gotten anything.  I guess with the 30AC figures starting to show up the dreaded "end of line curse" is alive and well.  :-\

I've wondered about a lot of Hasbro's repack choices this year, figs like Labria or Reikken or Poggle, and the only thing I can think of is they like to card previously uncarded figs just for the sake of including them in the line.  I'm not a carded collector, but maybe the folks that are consider the gallery of characters unbroken back to POTF2 (or whenever you started maybe) so for them and Hasbro, Labria is as good as new.  Which sucks, but it saves me money.  I would have definitely like to have seen those POTC Cantina guys again, though.  Or R3-A2.  Or...

Now that would have been smart.. from our perspective.

Picked up Training Darth Maul  today with a paint error. I'll try to post a picture soon, but His chin is painted all black instead of the red with black markings.
