That could spell some warping issues on these.  Think along the lines of how the Utapau Trooper warped at the hip because of how he's packaged in a running pose.

HAHA! so im not the only one who had warped leps on the utapau trooper. but you do have a point. the bkes will most likely mess up the leg articulation and make the figures look funny.

amen.

PS Yeah those utapua clones had hecka warping. It was disappoiting especially cause it was preventable just by not packing it in that dumb pose, but it was still an excellent army builder, Ive got quite a few.

Thtings showing in Asia tend to mean at least a Month till they make it through to retail distribution, and I think that's generous...  It can be longer.  I know from the contact that some other companies have with fan bases that they can tell you things are boxed and shipping from Asia, and they'll give a 3 month time period before they hit retail in the U.S., and they're pretty accurate with that...  Could be a little while yet.

I can still use a break, haha.

I would think that the BARC Speeders are probably the same sculpt as the one that was packed with Stass Allie.  That one was pretty good, whereas the version with the Clone Scout had the silly big wheel and zip cord.

I'm going to have to do a hell of a lot of boiling and freezing to get these guy's legs straight. I'm almost positive they'll be spread-eagled. It would've been alot nicer if they were packed standing next to their bikes rather than on them.
My whole expanse...I cannot see...
