Yeah the Vos set is a no-brainer...  I'm torn on the DE set though.  I like Palps but not Luke so much.  I'll probably buy it, but I'm definitely becoming more selective.

I opened up the Imperial Knights set last night. Awesome figures. I wish they'd make the female one now.

I agree, this set is excellent. Articulation is great, sculpt is awesome. I bought 3 sets of this. the extra two for headswaps. I've got enough rebel troopers and such that a headswap should be easy. I totally agree that we need the female version of the Imp Knights as well.


As far as the Vos and EU Palps sets go, I'll get the Vos set for sure. I'm not all that into the EU set. I"ll wait to see better pics and ones that explain the articulation to determine if I'm going to buy it. For now I'm thinking no on the Palps/Luke set though.
I'm just a humble collector trying to make his way through the universe...of toy aisles.

definite on both sets.  Probably trade out the legs on Luke w/Vader legs, that stance is rediculous.  Let's give him artic. knees & ankle but spread his legs out so far that he's doing splits  >:(.  I'll use Palps as a young Darth Sids.  I know the skin/hair color follows the comics but I think it'd be better if he were more normal ala Palps/Sids from TPM.

Vos/Faie what can be said Jedi + Clone=cool - artic. knees on uber cool Jedi character = custom

I like the Vos and Faie pack.  I'm not so big on the Dark Empire pack.  How close is the Faie Figure to the Kashyyyk Trooper we got in 30AC, and then repacked in the GH line for Legacy?  The helmet is removable, right?

Yup, that's why the lens look so damn huge.

Opened the Talon/Skywalker set last night. Well made figures and I have to admit I got enthused about them after starting to read the comic issue that came with the knights set.

I received the Talon Karrde/Grand Admiral Thrawn and Prince Xizor/Princess Leia comic packs yesterday, and I think they're pretty nice sets.  I have to admit that I haven't yet read the whole SOTE/Prince Xizor storyline, but his figure is pretty well done.  The Leia is just so-so, nothing too exciting to me really.

The Heir to the Empire pack, on the other hand, is a real winner in my opinion.  I never had the previous Thrawn, and was waiting for this one, and I think its a great figure overall.  Just how I pictured him when reading the books.  Talon Karrde is very well done too.  I guess, aside from a few comics, that the Thrawn Trilogy is really the only EU I've read (and really enjoyed) so that may be why I like this set so much.  I hope we see some more comic packs based on this storyline in the future.

I like Mandos, and like the two sculpts, but when I saw the two Marvel Mando packs at Target I just couldn't buy them.  I thought people were being a bit harsh saying they looked terrible, but they kinda do.  If they repainted these, the way they toned down the Luke and Han as Stormtrooper packs, I might revisit getting these, but as of right now I am not getting those two.

I opened up the other Mandalorian set yesterday, the one with the purple Dengar. Nice Mandalorian, but the purple Dengar is just ridiculous. I always enjoy the comics though.

I kind of like the purple Dengar.  The Marvel figures are neon-bright, but I kind of like that versus the more subdued colors we normally get.

In my continuing effort to get through my "to open" pile, I finally got to the Anakin/Durge, asajj/Korr packs. Both are well Done. Sometime I think the put more effort into the comic pack figures than they do the basic figures. Sometimes.
