I've read the extra vests were because the holes were the wrong size, they corrected it and threw in the error vests as bonuses.

That's interesting because the vest with my tan figure wouldn't hold the accessories but the extra worked fine. I haven't played with the grey vest yet, that was the other extra that I got.

Definitely interested in some of the Marauder figures...  not a ton, just a little group I think.  Loved how they ultimately turned out.

Thanks for the breakdown Eric...  the knee issue I'd not heard of yet.  Hmmm

Curious if the helmets/hat fit Star Wars, since they are cheaper than casted stuff I've seen (and no painting required)

Got some figure that could use any decent head wear.  I ordered 2 Death Star Trooper from Hong Kong, and then...after years of selling those darn figures without helmets (but with lightsabers?) they dig up lots that include helmets. they were just waiting for me to cave in.

Just a thought on the headgear, I'm betting they PROBABLY are slightly small.  Very slightly.  Most Joe stuff I've found doesn't swap easily with many/most STar Wars figure heads.  Of course SW scaling is all over the map so some of them are fine, but not many I've found.  GI Joe heads are kinda weird too though I guess.

Since this line (Marauder's line) is kind of GI Joe-based, I'd guess their headgear probably has similar issues?  Just a guess though.

Acid Rain's figures don't have many accessories that fit a Star Wars figure readily either and they have a GI Joe vibe to them (sculpt, articulation, design, etc.), so that's just been my experience I guess. 

BBI's gear though, I found swapped over a bit better and their "new" figures are on clearance at Target right now.  Some had the booney hats too iirc.
