Thanks Jeff. Yeah, I love that they use those guys, and it's one of those things that makes me want to watch all the Clone Wars episodes. I keep meaning to just buy the whole series on dvd or bluray when it's finished, to watch the whole thing.

There's really great parts of the prequels, visually, but I just wish they had brought some more OT into it. I guess that's a subject for a different thread though.

Exactly, PLUS the IG-86 guy was an awesome figure and fits into animated and realistic perfectly.

He reminds me of those commercials of "pipe people", for when you have to pee all the time.

I bought a ton of those guys on sales and clearances...  Love him.  I like the Lancer Droids too, but love those IG-86's for quick goonery behind a pirate type character.  Everyone scumbag should have at least two of those guys helping him out.

Just wait, Mike... I'm guessing these will be re-released with Paploo, Luke and Leia at some point.  ;)

This speederbike sculpt is so awesome, they could release it with a drunk Sio Bibble and I'd get it.

I really would like to see a repainted version with Boba Fett. Naturally, Fett would need ball jointed hips, which he needs anyways. If it could stow away in the upcoming Slave-1, all the better.

I also wouldn't turn my nose up at a kick ass Bossk on speeder bike. Because Bossk is the ******* man. In fact, any bounty hunter would look awesome on a speeder bike.

Thanks for the tip! I ordered 3 to take advantage of the free shipping offer. I can't wait to get them! I'm sure I'll love the set, so I might look into getting a few more down the road.

Got mine today.  Pretty sweet, though I would change with shoulder joint colors.

Mine is expected to arrive tomorrow, and as soon as I open it up, I'm seriously thinking of displaying it with Bossk riding it.
