Definitely better, and a scaled, detailed Mousedroid is a nice improvement too.  Finally can get rid of the one on steroids, and the Micromachines ones I'd been using as fill-ins.  Love that little touch.

I like the color on this one a bit more.  It looks a little more grey, and a little less green.  Paul's usually got a better eye for this detail than I do, so I'm curious what his thoughts will be.

Also not a huge fan of the softgoods skirt here.  They've done flexible plastic skrits with slits on the side to accomodate sitting, and that would've done well here, however the fabric they chose is nicer looking, and the length is right.  He had an oddly high belt. :)  Typical old dude.

Why is there an arrow pointing to Vader's crotch and why do they want me to push it?

The long shaft he's gripping turns red.

Carded images up at sandtroopers.

Tarkin looks better...maybe...hard to tell.

Christ, could those pics be any smaller?  There's a bad joke to be made here.  ;)

POTF2 now has bigger pics here.

Tarkin looks great, but it's still hard to look past that soft goods, I think JJ is right in that soft plastic with a cut/split may have been the better way to go.  I understand why they did it, so he can sit, but I'm not sure the execution is quite right.

If he isn't given a chair to sit in at some point, this skirt on him is ultimately incredibly silly.

I would go for some soft good Galactic marines
and as far as Im concerned they have still never given us a decent kashyyk trooper for yodas crew
other than that I have ( with the exception of phase one on Kamino)
good representations of every on screen clone shown and in the numbers shown on screen.

Yeah, Kashyyyyk shorties they made didn't quite cut it... (even worse now that they new clones they are making are taller than the older version!) I almost liked the recolored ROTJ scout trooper better.

And with that vintage boxed AT-AP showing Kashyyyk troopers, I'm in the mood to buy more. Silly, Hasbro advertizing figures not at retail.

No Fleet Troopers, Echo Troopers, or Naval Troopers...  Wow.

Vintage Wave 15

It's a good case, I'm just really bummed to see they didn't include any good army builders in it, at all. :(  Especially when the regular humans have been in such short supply since last year, unless you're an Endor Rebel.  Even the Naboo Royal Guard is one of the only TPM wave to go.  I'm a bit bummed on that, but Malgus making a return is good for sure.  I think he's gonna be a bear.

I am so tired of the non-existence of product at retail, I happily ordered two of these cases.

It will essentially mean I'm "done" with the Wave 3 and Wave 5 figures minus scoring two Imperial Navy Commander figures and Realistic CW Anakin to open.

I don't care about the card variants on the Bespin Han re-release wave (I'm sure I'll see those in plentiful supply anyway).

If I stumble on this case in plentiful supply before this pre-order ships then I'll cancel it, but with the way things have been going, I don't think that's happening...
