I'd concur with that...  Some OT focus for the next set from EE might be a freshing change of pace...  I know the astro's from the OT seem to be the more popular astro's in general.

EE says their WHSE is moving this summer, so no, that's no longer a feasible option either ::)

Warehouse is moving.  Offices are not.   Obviously, I buy stuff from EE, so will call will most likely still be viable in some form or another-- stay tuned.  We haven't stopped taking will call orders and we obviously plan to keep our clients happy, so if you've any concerns about a will call order, please call us and let us know, or PM me and I'll figure it out.

I personally want to thank Adam for bringing these packs to fruition :)

I wish I could say you're welcome, but my input with these sets was somewhat limited-- I can't take credit for all of it.  Maybe a tiny bit of it.  But most of what you've seen so far, no.  I'm glad you like it, and I'll be sure to pass the appropriate compliments to the appropriate parties.    Or if you're at comic-con, be sure to give 'em a pat on the back if you dig it.

Dred Priest? Does he come with "minor-sodomizing" action feature?

New figure revealed. Dred Priest:

It wouldn't surprise me in the least if underneath that helmet he bore resemblance to a certain Hasbro marketing guru...  Derryl DePriest.   :P

Huh. I like it. I'll give the Clone rifle to some other Clone. Also, the Shadow Commando is growing on me. Looks like I'm going to break down and order this set.

The name's funny and I guess Jayson beat me to the joke I had all worked up for this thread...  Good to know I wasn't the only one with priest jokes lined up.  But the figure's pretty nifty looking, even if it's basically a repaint of the first figure with maybe a different head.

Cool looking repaint though, so I dig it and I am digging the concept of the pack...

Clone Troopers + Drill Sergeants/Military Instructors

I think that's a pretty "neat" idea and so far the execution has been pretty decent...  Hasbro's still walking that edge of going overboard with ideas, but not crossed it (to me) yet.

The more figures revealed the more I'm sold on this set. I've always wanted to build a small army of Mandalorian warriors and at long last my dream can be realized. This latest addition puts us up to 7 unique looking Mandalorian designs:

Boba Fett
Jango Fett
Concept Boba
Animated Debut Boba
Dred Priest
Llats Ward
Rav Bralor

Looking to be a pretty sweet set.

The figure looks fine except the helmet looks to be a couple sizes too small for the head.  I think it's just a repainted Jango Fett helmet like the one that came in the EII tin (which didn't look too hot on his head either).

This is what happens when you invade Wakanda

I kind of like this new figure as well.  I guess I'm one of those suckers for Mandalorians too, and kind of like the concept of "Jango and his trainers" in a way.  I'm sort of hoping that we get that SA Jango in this set too, although that would royally suck for those who aren't interested in the set otherwise.  Its very EU-ish, and the clones aren't necessarily that exciting, but I do kind of like the different Mandos.

I like the new one too. I don't mind a few more like these. Set up for a Mandelorian war of sorts...

Better than more white clones...

Getting better.  Though I think the odds of seeing a new Jango in this set are pretty low.

I think it's fair to assume that this set will consist of nothing but EU fodder.
