I'd be down for a lot more of these if they were just painted a little better, I don't mind the lack of POA's but make them look better, the sculpts are solid but the shiny coloured plastic look turns me off. POTJ was frequently low POA's but they looked brilliant. My other gripe with these is that the arms are frequently sculpted too straight, it looks off to me, they look better when theres a bit of a bend to them, or even, dare I say it, preposed (ala POTJ). No one duels with a lightsaber by holding it in one hand with their arm fully extended. If they could solve those two nitpicks, I'd be all over these.

I found a couple of new-ish 2 packs at target this morning:



Case assortment looked like 4 of each new pack and 4 of the Han/chewie set. I didn't grab the new sets as the paint looked pretty poor, especially on the Grievous figures.

Picked up the Luke/Vader pack. Could be out of sheer boardom from not having anything else to buy.

Weird that that one never showed up on Amazon... if HTS had free shipping I'd be all over that, but as it stands I'll have to wait.

There are two cases shipping right now -

The standard Wave 3 case has 4x Bespin Luke/Vader, 4x Utapau Obi-Wan/Grievous, and 4x Coruscant Yoda/Sidious.

Wave 3 Revision Case has 4x Bespin Luke/Vader, 4x Utapau Obi-Wan/Grievous, and 4x Han/Chewie.

The revision case seems to be the more common one so far...

Picked up the Sidious & Yoda set today.

The way Sidious' legs are a big mass of plastic reminded me enough of the vintage Emperor to suck me in.

I saw the Yoda/Sidious Missions Series 2-pack for the first time yesterday in Target. His face really is that funky two-tone color close-up. Blech.

I found the Sidious set also at Target. On my example the paint isn't that bad at all and I found myself really liking this figure for what it is. It's more successful from a sculpt point of view than the vintage figure, which I ended up augmenting anyway with the hood and head from the bust up figure from years back.

Same story as the basic Legends I guess (overshadowed by the Black Series stuff), but these looked great too. 

Hoth Han and Luke, Dagobah R2 and Yoda, Stormtrooper Luke and Leia - all great sculpts.  They'd look even better with some more articulation though...  :-X

These continue to amaze. I know there's been a lot of hate with them, but you can't argue with the sculpts and as Jayson said the Yoda is better than the one that just came out. This Yoda destroys, really, just about any modern one they've done to this point. I like the recent BS one, but this one captures Yoda better. Same is true of the Hoth Luke. The Hoth Han is perfect, very excited by him. Finally they get to Leia and she looks great. Articulation is less and less a factor for me, but I appreciate it where it's necessary. One thing I'd like to see in these figures is the ability for them to hold a saber or gun with two hands. That being said, enjoying all these quite a bit.

I'd say from the pics this one seems more blue than brown.
