WTF? I think this is the first figure set that I've seen that triggered a "pass" reflex almost instantaneously.

I'm kinda there myself...  I may skip this just to save myself some dignity.

What does it mean to be "Preview's exclusive"?

I really should find a way to post this in some sort of FAQ since it comes up everytime a new Previews exclusive shows up...  :P

"Previews" is the catalog put out by Diamond Comics Distributors.

Previous "Previews" exclusives include the Death Star Briefing set, Republic Commandos sets, the Rebel Logo TIE, and the Sandcrawler to name a few.  If it is sold through Previews, then any local comic book shop and all the big on-line shops (BBTS, EE, etc) should have it...

Which sorta negates the term "exclusive", hah.  I used to always get a good look at the Previews catalogue back when my hometown had a comic shop but that closed up eons ago.  Miss getting a look in the book. :(

If my eyes are not mistaken the legs appear to be the same mold as the TAC Training Fatigue Clone Trooper. They have the same stupid stance too. Anyone else agree?

I have to say this is a very easy pass and a very odd choice given that Crimson Empire is not that popular. (Maybe in the late 90's since there was not that much SW to go around)
I never got the appeal of the Crimson Guard thing, in fact I am very much inspired to rip apart my Canor Jax set of figures for customs after seeing this set. This is a really terrible set, there are so many better EU things to focus on. For a collector focused set why are they slapping in two figures that we have more than enough of?

if this had a Green Ninja I may have bought it......
