Ugly as sin. And I'm with Vorax and Jesse08: solid black is one thing, but what's the point of throwing white and red hash marks all over them? It's not "covert" and it's not intimidating.

For those interested in this set, it sounds like StarWarsShop.com will be offering a limited quantity to the US starting this week (maybe even as soon as tomorrow).

I know most folks consider them "sucky repaints" for the most part, but I'm sure someone out there is interested... ;)

I'm gonna try for one. I'm always dubious of the "Limited" remarks, but since I'm saying, it probably will be.

I may get one set. Though I wish SWS had better prices and a better selection. I hate buying from them because their shipping is so damn high, plus I can never find anything else I want to buy to cut down on shipping costs. It's goign to be real hard to justify a $7 shipping charge on top of what will probably be a $16-20 item for what amounts to an extra paulron and kama done in black and red colors.

I'm going to try to grab at least two - one to keep MIB and another to open. Ideally I'd like to get three, but I'm going to assume that they'll be limiting folks to 1 or 2 each.

$24.99 with limit of 2.  We want your money, but want to rob everyone equally.

Add in tax and $7 shipping, you get some real crap for $27. Such a deal! :-X
