This is a set I'm going to get kicking and screaming.

And God help me, I just pre-ordered it. Aghhhhhhhhhh!

I do love the idea and execution of this set and I'll happily buy this.

But if you're buying action figures because you feel like you have to do it, and not because you want them or like them, then you unquestionably have a problem.  I'm not a psychologist and don't know what it is, but it's something.

I don't know I'm seeing some custom fodder there Chewie, well I guess with the money that I'm saving on not buying crap I'm mean the "Moisture farm" I can spend here.

Could be some decent fodder, yeah.  I've got more than enough of that though I guess.  I guess I would rather spend my money on things like the homestead over Power Rangers!   :)

ya well considering the amount of customs you come up with I'm sure your fodder bin runneth over.  I really don't have the room, yet, for the homestead so I'll stick with the figures, but damn what am I going to do with another freaking Vader.

You can do what Hasbro does and repaint them in different colors.

Yep, same here. No Power Rangers for me, although I do agree that they have some customizing potential.

Our sources came up with a new photo of the Previews Exclusive Crimson Empire Training Pack.  I'm still not sure I'm gonna buy this set, but I think if I see it on sale I'd gladly grab it.  The price is pretty decent...  Just wish we had one more trainee and one less repack I guess.


Clicky to check it out!

I have no clue (maybe you can tell) what the legs look like...  I'm hoping they're not those crummy Clone Trainee legs but that's what they appeared to be on earlier photos.  Now they look less like that, but it's tough for me to tell.

Still no interest in this set.

If I open the set, I might use the heads for various officers in my imperial battalion.
