I too am very anti-Marvel at this point, and while I was tempted on the Mando's, I'm likely going to pass on all those sets.  Unfortunately though, around here it's still all the first wave of Legacy comic sets around.  I've seen hide nor hair of the latest stuff. 

I couldn't even bring myself to buy the Durge comic given that Durge doesn't even live up to the deluxe Durge from the CW years.

It's hard to believe that the comic packs are suppling just as many new figures as the basic figure line.

I'm still wondering who all these characters are or where they came from. I guess that means most of them are passes for me.

That's always my reaction. Then I buy the set, read the comic and wind up liking the characters.  :P

Ki Adi Mundi reminds me of one of the 70's McDonalds characters:



O.K. sets, I wish it was a pilot Biggs instead of a useless Academy outfit. The Bothan is really silly looking, I never got the appeal of Bothans. I like the Luke/deena set the best. This will be great for custom fodder......
I agree it does appear the Biggs has the Training Clone/Crimson empire legs.

That's funny, my initial reaction was Kung Lao of Mortal Kombat.




Love me some of that Bothan though.

So are the Thrawn/Karrde, Leia/White Vader, and Vader/Adm. Trachta packs out at retail (wide) yet?  I thought I had read someone (it may have been Adam from GH) that had at least the Karrde pack, but I wasn't sure.  I've seen (only one of each) the recent Marvel sets (Dengar, Leia, Mandos) and the 2 Legacy packs, but I wasn't sure if I should be keeping my eyes open for anything beyond that.

I don't know about wide, but I think that assortment has made its way to as far as the Midwest as a fellow MN guy found the Vader/Trachta set.

What are you guys paying in the US for these?  I saw the $17.99 MSRP on the previous page, but that can't be right, can it?

I paid $12.99 for the Imperial Knights comic 2-pack at a mom & pop store.  I was very surprised at just how well articulated both of those figures are.

Well the trachta set has been found in Canada, and if its been found here it has to be around in the states ;)

Wow suddenly I dont really mind the $14 price tag up here. not too much of a difference I guess, but still havent seen a comic pack this year that interests me.

Actually, I've seen them for $12.88 at WM. Paid $12.99 last night at Target for Cade/Talon and the Knights.

I won't buy any for the existing characters themselves, but I see a lot of potential customizing into other obscure film characters.  Particularly the Karrde body and Bothan body.

Karrde is worth it just for the Atricu. legs and sleeveless Articu. arms.
