I know I'm easily entertained compared to some guys with my "age" in the hobby in general, but I actually am liking the set... My only gripe is that I agree that the likenesses NEEDED some weathering. A scar here, an eyepatch there... If Hasbro had gone with less realistic likenesses of their employees and maybe instead given one a metal jaw prosthetic ala Darth Malak, etc., that would've been kind of neat I think. And would've I think given those faces some grit and "life".
Not to knock the Hasbro guys they represent and all... Just sayin', these aren't gifts for those guys as much as they're marketed toys, so some war wear would've been neat/appreciated I think.
I totally see the POV though that you have Rob, in wanting some set EU "set" too. I like the Omega Squadron deal though the RC sculpt's lacking somewhat IMO (*cough*articulation*cough*), but at the same time I totally agree that a Montross type character would've been cool... Though, he was offed by Jango, so he doesn't fit with the theme either.
I'm pretty content, and I'll gladly get some of the extra army builders in the set from a friend, so I'm good on this one. Still gotta pre-order though, yikes!
