I knew I wasn't crazy!!!

Bummer that that one got dropped. Would have been an awesome squad leader.

Wow!... I was digging the shadow trooper w/ removable helmet... the only thing is that his face covering/ninja disguise thingy looks a little different for a stormtrooper.

And does anyone know whether or not the Mandalorian Starkiller uses the Evolutions Jango Fett's arms? They look very similar, and I wouldn't be surprised if they were indeed the same.

For those that have the set, how different is this JumpTrooper from the 30AC version?

I know the EVOtrooper has the ugly yellow camo to make him different, but what about the JumpTrooper - is the only difference a lack of dirt on his boots?

The new Jump trooper comes with a jet pack and different weapon.

I was just coming over to post about this and the TRU coupon code I found but I see it already made it to the front page.  I bought one of each sets plus the GI Joe internet exclusive MARS trooper 3 pack that was clearanced down to $7.50 to tip the scales so I could then use the "936072" coupon to get $10 for ordering $50 of merch   ;D

Rock on - now I have one less thing to bug TRU employees about!

and ooo I got a free mighty bean with my order - whatever that is...

It's some kind of collector's guide.  I got one tacked on my order as well.  Hopefully one of my locals have kids who are into that stuff.

Well, unfortunately, they either sold out overnight or they have pulled them from the site 'cause they realized people were getting the buy one, get second for 50% off on something that's brand new...

He's also a re-paint. Slight, but a re-paint none-the-less. Darker colours and the red stripe on his head is more centered.

Scored these this morning at a local TRU - was able to take advantage of the Buy One, Get Second 50% Off promotion they are running now, so each set of two cost me $45 instead of $60. Not bad!

Yeah that's a great price - I scored some too with the sale.  Tempted to hit another area TRU and see if I can grab a couple more.  The figures are great outside of the Evo trooper I think (kinda so-so on the translucent Stormie, but a local friend wants all that I get), and the others that I have extras of are going to be great for custom fodder (like Juno and both versions of Galen).

I saw these this morning too for the first time, but they failed to restock any of the EU Wave.  :(

I really hope TRU gets their act together before Saturday, or that is going to be one pathetic endcap display.

I started opening these up and since I have two sets to open, I was really hoping that Hasbro had done us a huge favor and made it so the two new Galen Marek figures could be used to supply new heads to the two figures from the Vader's Apprentice Evolutions set.

Unfortunately, neither new head fits on the ball for the "Light Side" version of the Apprentice. So that's out.

The head from the Junk Planet gear version of Marek will work on the body from the initial outfit figure, but it sits alittle "low" on the neck and that figure's head works fine on the new figure's body, but rides too "high" so unless you pitch the head forward the shoulder wrap doesn't cover the nose and mouth.

For people like me who are buying more than one set to have multiples of the army builders, it would definitely have been a nice bonus if I could have used the new Galen heads to update the Evolutions set figures.

Oh well...

The sets are great though, I am very tempted to score another two sets just so I can four of each of the army builders (eight in the case of the cloaked Stormtrooper).

I'm pretty happy with these boxed sets. I was fortunate enough to get two of each.

I know I won't need the extra Garen Maleks though, or the extra Giraffe EVO trooper. So those are up for sale. I'll sell them all three for $14 or $5 each for the Maleks and $4 for the giraffe EVO trooper.
