I didn't pay this much attention, but now I'm tempted... is it too late to order the Stormtrooper or are we expecting GG to have some available to the PGM later on?

Not sure yet, if I keep it, I definitely won't keep them on the card...way too big and will take up way too much room.  Stormy never did much for me as a kid...the rest though have me intrigued :-X

I grabbed the Stormie. looks real nice, the plastic is a little soft, joints might get real loose if you play with them to much.
He can't hold the gun right either... :-[  but all in all a nice piece for a focus collection.
The packaging is really big but a Empire logo?, Leaves a lot of play for custom cards and boxes so that's kind of cool.
I really hope they make the capes for the Vader, Ben etc. vinyl cape for Jawa is a must and cheaper to produce.
The Fett is a must have for sure but making the whole vintage line is just nuts. That being said would love to see a Imp Gunner and Bossk.
Maybe they'll do a few fan choice figures? What, a 12" Greedo? that's just sweetness...
imagine a scale Falcon or Death Star? The mind collapses at the thought...

Army building?  ???  Seems odd, but maybe it was hard to get the first time around?

I haven't kept up with anything GG as much as I should've for the front page though...  It's usually just too pricey for me, but still looks neat.

Greedo is bitchin' though.  I can't wait to see the Gonk.

EDIT:  I think the Stormie is on a new cardback from the last one, but I'm not positive.

Why are you upset that it is coming out again?   ???
