Thanks to Jessevader, the imperial ranks swell a little more... 3 DS gunners, 3 DS troopers, 3 jawas, bikerscouts, and guards. Plus some ewoks for some customizing that will make the ASPCA a little nervous....

I want pics of the customs!

i was lucky enough to get hold of the new 400% fett.. but seriously it was quite disappointing..

the first BxH version is still the best one..

Just bought a Ig88, a luke x-wing, tie fighter pilot, and death star trooper.  I'm high bidder on a few auctions too ending soon so hopefully i'll be posting with some more.  I'm slowly getting some of these guys.  Hopefully I'll catch up soon.

Congrats!

The extra Luke Jedi will come in handy- You can boil & pop his head off, and put it on a Luke X wing from series 6 to create "Pilot luke with helmet off"
I would recommend getting a cheap TRU box set # 2 and using the ceremonial Luke head- it is younger looking, more new-hopey. those sets can be had in the $20- $25 range if you are patient, and they give you an extra imperial droid plus an ewok to crush with an AT-ST.

Thanks for the tip BDSWF.  I got all 10 of those for $51 shipped after the seller combined the shipping so I am even more excited that I got them for that price.  Do you have a link to the boil and pop method? I've never tried to do any customs.

Swapping kubrick heads is my first "custom" work, and it couldn't be much easier. I posted a quick note in the Custom Kubrick thread-  ;)

Is that Ra's al Ghul.. if so that might be a cool base for a Prequel Sith Palpy  ;)
