I would have loved to see Montross in this set. As it is, I like the mandalorian bodies, but their heads are pretty weak. I guess that's semi-easily fixed. I like the ARC troopers, but I'm disappointed with the Commandos...but that has more to do with me not liking the original sculpt. The clones...meh.

I'd much rather have had an 8 pack of actual EU characters for the same price

I'd have to agree with that, and I'd probably end up getting two sets then... one for customs, the other to leave as is.

Some sort of assembly of KOTOR characters would have really been something to make me bite more than the Mandos... heck, even if the Mandos had more unique designs, and maybe something like Montross like Lando pointed out, I might be more interested. It's a shame because this idea had a lot of potential.

Is this better than the Battlefront sets? I don't know. At least those I *think* I can get some sort of use out of, as I did pre-order them from dnstoys.  That could change though once I get them and see them in person.

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! :(

I was thinking the same thing.

Excellent, I am actually looking forward to these sets despite the lame heads. This was a big years for Mando fans.

I got a surpise on the doorstep when I got home from the office (and it wasn't the flaming bag of dog "stuff")...

My set arrived.  I don't know what I did to deserve the early Thanksgiving gift...but I will take it...

I have not gotten them out yet...

So get ready JJ...clones headed your way.

I got shipping confirmation as well, so these should be on the way this week (or early next).  The end of the year barrage continues.... :).
