I'll get you on that... I sorta wanted Leia, but not the white Vader, so if you want we'll split the set and I'll send you the white Vader? Just PM me to let me know if it's a deal and include your addy so I can just ship it out as soon as I find one. Was on the fence about the set and you're helping me cave to get the Leia.
CHEWIE, yeah I am disappointed in Trachta only because they SAID they were increasing the price to make articulation more conistant, and then they bailed on that basically. When you get that Vader, again, for the umpteenth time, the figure is 100% profit to Hasbro practically, so was tooling some articulation in the knees really that hard?
That is the kinda stuff that reminds me that Hasbro can and will dick you over.
The CW wave was pretty great and I liked those warriors, but I agree... And again I feel some "neutral" posed feet WITHOUT ankle articulation is the way to go, so you get the knee joints.
The trainee Clone from last year is a case of how Hasbro can truly dick you over on no ankle articulation but knee articulation. If they sculpt the ankles flat/neutral though, and give the knee joints, the figure works out fine I've found. Trachta is a prime example though of lacking knees hurting an otherwise outstanding figure... While I like those CW troopers, they too are the weakest of their wave due to this point.
At least Trachta is an easy enough fix I guess.
There are amazing comic packs though, so credit where it's due... The Imp Knights set, and I think the storyline is lame even, is outstanding... But really again they got twice the use out of the mold tooling basically. The Leia/White Vader set is practically gravy for them. All those lame Marvel sets are gravy for them. And they do love to repack repack repack in the comic line making up all those "costs" of new toolings, not to mention I don't look at the comic packs and think they're much more of a value than basic figures, at least not anymore.
Ah well, at least there's a lot of good, just that there's equal bad with the comic line... I find the basic line to be much better overall than it had been since really 2005.
