I actually disagree on the grey DST's being included...
First, I think the 30AC Death Star Trooper is a weak figure overall... It takes a bit of modifying it to get it to look a normal height, and fix the leg bowing. A lot of people don't likek the way the ball-joints look (I am ok with them, but they could be better hidden for sure), and then there are some oddities about the sculpt...
For me, I like the figure well enough if I find it cheap, as I don't mind modifying it, but in general I'd prefer seeing a new sculpt of the DST someday that lived up to modern standards. I give it an A for effort, but a C for execution ultimately. I think ultimately many people look down on the figure's sculpt overall though.
Second, does anyone really want to army build it in a 3-pack? OK, JACK is willing to, but I know I'm not giddy at the thought of paying for 3 figures to get one I actually care about, and I'd like a couple commanders for DST's. The Hoth Rebel set's different to me because I wouldn't mind another Leia and 2-1B is actually a decent representation of the character. Perhaps a little oversized, but the prop looked fairly big at the Where Science Meets Imagination exhibit so I dunno. I prefer the POTF2 figure to the ROTS figure, ironically. I'd love a new OT version though, sure.
The point there being ultimately that a lot of people are into a couple of these, and a 3-pack of figures you don't want and one that peole may want, kinda stings.
But third, I don't think a simple repaint of the 30AC figure is accurate enough for me... The Death Squad Commander's got some specific enough details that I think I'd just prefer they either used other parts at the very least, or a newly sculpted figure.
I'd also add in that Hasbro would now have the avenue open to say, "Well we already did that....", and if that figure isn't up to snuff for a lot of people, then the door may be shut for a future one on a better sculpt. I'm not sure how into doing that repaint Hasbro is, or if they're waiting for an improvement themselves maybe?
Here's a weird thought though... Would you want a purely screen-accurate grey Death Squad Commander or the Vintage figure accurate? The vintage figure sports a rank badge, the guy it's based on didn't. Weird thought. Maybe worth starting a new thread for. I think there'll be even split. Check for the thread. It's a weird thought that just came to me, that they're different.
