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.
