I haven't really kept up with this series, which species is Krayt? Is that the Chagrian?

No he's really A'sharad Hett (the half Tusken/Half Human Jedi)  from the prequel era who lived that long to see this time.

Ruin for everybody why dontcha.  :P

I could always see anybody that might not like Legacy/EU just using these troops as specialized stormies.
but funny how little the weaponry/armor has changed in 100 years or so.  Thats the only thing I've not liked about Legacy.  They should've made them look a little bit more different.

Gotta hand it to Mr. Pawlus - he was right.  This set is outstanding.

Agreed. I'm really pleased with this set, especially since it brings our Legacy figure count up from four to ten. Bring on Darth Krayt, Delilah Blue, Jariah Syn, Marasiash Fel, Wolf Sazen, Shado Vao and Darth Nihl!

I like it, nice to see some helmet less stormies that aren't Jango clones for a change. I liked the Joker Squad from the comics so I may just pick this set up.

Only think that bugs me about this set is the Female Troopers weapon. A reused GI Joe weapon from 89. I wonder if it has the word Fang on it still? Hasbro really pulls all the stops for us don't they ::).

Pictures of them at SDCC show helmets, but Hasbro has made mistakes before. I would hope they have helmets, or it's not that great of a set.

Sorry, I thought by now this was common knowledge. It's been out for awhile and posted here and everywhere else. Hey at least if you haven't read the story, you can go back and find out how it all happened.

Yes, that was my first question when I saw the pictures.  They will have helmets.  I don't think they showed Harkas' helmet in the comics, but it looks like it'll just be a plain normal helmet.

I uploaded shots of these from the EE booth-- and a few hundred other things-- to my Flickr page.  You can see just the Joker Squad here:

I'm glad you guys like it.  I think it turned out pretty well, and I hope it was worth the wait.  It was certainly fun to watch the Dagger Squadron rumors flying. :)
