They don't exactly have the white/blue Legacy packaging, so I guess its possible they'll be out sooner.

That would be nice. With the current lack of product, not saying I've got money to burn, but I can easily spring for these before the deluge of July with the Legacy and CW stuff.

These are supposed to be the last offerings of the 30AC line.  So expect them to be in stores around the end of this month, or in early June.

Is this a joke?   ::)   I seriously got some good laughs out of that pic though.   ;D

These droids are neat but I can't justify $10 for one figure.

The first thing I thought when I saw that was...it's Holiday Special Luke Skywalker!

Seriously...is the person responsible for Luke head sculpting on crack?  What the hell?  To me, he'll make a perfect Holiday Special Luke

It looks like it was taken from a cover of Mad Magazine!

I don't mind a happy expression (and he was certainly that coming out of the X-Wing on Yavin), but can they just get a photo or 2 of Hamill from 1977 and sculpt from that?  I swear this could be any kid's face!  The R2 is sweet and I'm sure I can find a use for him.  I'm still undecided on the Han/R3PO combo though; I think Han's head and hood look worse than initial pics, plus the correct brown version will be in the battlepack.  The R-3PO is nicely articulated, but I still think the first R-3PO has a better color choice.

You will.  You..... will. 

Just pretend you're Canadian.  I've never figured out why, but it makes it easier when you bend over and take it, um, yeah. 

Or what I'm saying, in an age-old and no doubt tiresome lament, is that if these come to Canada, they'll retail for $20, not $10, just like the Order 66 packs are.  At best they'll be the $17 pricepoint of the comic two packs.  Stupid hobby, stupid collector.

Not to mention the fact that very soon one figure will cost eight dollars USD anyways. What's two more dollars at that point?

I think I have an extra X-Wing Luke to swap heads with that monstrosity.  Tokin' Luke head will go into the parts bin.

You will.  You..... will. 


Oh, I wouldn't be so sure.

I'm doing really well this year - only one 3 3/4" related purchase (Evo Fett set).

Is that a droid piece in your package or are you just happy to see me?
