Finally got a 2nd Darth Krayt/Dare CP for openers. I was surprised by the pristine shape of the packaging, and the box holding it was friggin' HUGE!! Gosh. There could have been a portrait in there. Very disappointed by the paint apps on Krayt. Overall, a very awkwardly-constructed figure. The paint apps on Dare's face have been revised for a crisper look.

Even though I've little interest in that future era storyline, I got that Krayt and Dare set for $7 something at Target. Also got the Wedge and Borssk pack, too. I don't understand why they made that Wedge. A dress uniform from the Expanded Universe? Was that really something in demand, even by the EU fanbase? Borssk is okay, but I keep wanting to pose the arms like they have ball joints. Many Bothans arms popped out to bring you this post. (Okay, one Bothan's arms almost popped out.)

Can someone fill me in on this thing?



Was it canceled or did I miss it?

It was one of the cancelled sets.  It would have been in a future wave of comics packs, had the comic pack line lived.

Since they're basically repaints, no one is really clamoring for them to get made at this point, unlike some of the other cancelled comic pack figures (Nom Anor, Nohgri, etc).

Perfect, thanks.  I figured they were canceled but since other canceled sets have made it out I wasn't sure if I could file this one under dead.

Even though I don't open my figures - I dug the white Vader for some reason.  This would have been a nice compliment in the comic pack line.  Oh well....

At this rate, better the Han/Luke set was cancelled, since the upcoming TVC Bespin Han is loads better.

HTS has several comic packs on sale right now for as low as $7-8.  Just a head's up for anyone looking to army build or fill in gaps.

Thanks for the plug!

And yes, avoid it.  It's pretty horrible.  Other sets in the case were far better.  Even ones with characters I was completely clueless on were more appealing and I'm a big Rogue Squad fan.  :(

I want the head from the baron. I repainted the original baron fel from the TAC comic pack in tie interceptor gear but i want the bearded head for it. I also wouldn't mind the black helmet.

The head's a lot to pay for one set, I hope you can get one cheap enough.  I wasn't even impressed with the headsculpt that much. :(  I always liked the cover-art of him in front of a TIE Cockpit with the kill markings on it and no beard.  That was always my preferred look of the character over how he appeared inside the comics I guess.

I am hoping to see it for like 10 bucks maybe less i don't think it is going to go anywhere. the mandalorian 2 pack is sweet tho, i bought a second one for modding.

As per the front page...

If you have a Ross Dress For Less nearby, they are getting the Plourr Illo/Dllr Nep Comic pack in at some or possibly all of their stores...  I picked a pack up Sunday for $5.99...  I'm hearing 1 pack per store though, so not maybe something that everyone will see.  One store I hit had none, one had one, so your mileage will vary if you have Ross stores near you.

For $5.99 though, hey...  Why not?
