Hmmm, now that you mention this Pete, I may do a carded set and maybe an open set but not army build, though I'll be honest that that is going to be extremely hard for me to not do.(Army build).

Diorama kicks ass.

I don't really want to dick around with the preview figures and the POPs so I will probably just go for the basic/dirty version.

It's interesting how his kama doesn't go all the way around...I wonder if that's a playability thing, and will allow him to sit in ships?

Unless the kama is made of the most flexible plastic in the world or cloth, I'm afraid Captain Rex will suffer the same problems that all Clones w/kamas face - the inability to sit down. It probably just matches how he looks in the cartoon.

I'm looking forward to getting two of these (one to open, one to keep in package.)

Gawd, it's becoming that much harder to pass these up.

Just two days ago I was 100% against them.
Yesterday 75% against.
Now I'm 50/50.

SDCC is going to really help make or break my decision. But at this rate, it looks like I may be one of the "fallen." (One of those who wouldn't collect the SW line, but caved) heh heh.

It's easy to stay away from collecting star wars figures until your store starts to restock with new stuff.

Must fight the urge to buy this figure! Must fight the urge!!! :-\

Actually, it will be harder when the pegs are empty of what you really want and these guys are hanging around during that time. That is when the desperation for the happy toy will take hold.

I am still 100% out on these although I will be mailing away for a few of the Rex's for trade sale and one keeper. I already mailed away for my first one with number 2 tomorrow. I really hope they convert this line to realistic in year 2. Having a separate animated line will steal away figure slots from the main line long term.

WHAT?!  Its $7 plus four UPCs?  Hasbro you stink.   >:(  Why not just make it an online Exclusive and charge $20? 

heck im happy..i know i will buy more then four figures so UPC are not a problem and at $7.20 that is almost saving $4 for me at this rate i will probably order two.

That's hilarious.  The price is brutal for you US guys, but as jangotat points out, it's actually below Canadian retail by quite a bit.  I've got a nice little stack of UPCs saved up, so why not.  Saving $4 a figure is a good deal.

$7 is actually below the US cost too since these are retailing for $8. We buy the figures anyway so the UPC's are easy to come by. It's not like the VOTC promotions where you had to buy VOTC figures. Any current figure will work with this promotion so I cannot see complaining about &7 for a shipped figure in a special package. sounds like a deal to me.

I already mailed away for my 7th Rex today. It's weird I feel obligated to use every mail away ticket.......I am not even collecting the animated line when it comes out.
