What is a Crimson Stormtrooper?  I'd only want half of what's there, so hopefully these come out on single cards.

The closest thing that I found was this Wookieepedia listing for a Magma Trooper.  But the name 'Crimson Stormtrooper' sounds familiar, like it might have been something out of the Crimson Empire storyline from Dark Horse.

The real stars of this set, for me, are the Sandtrooper and the R2 unit.  The Sandtrooper adds to the troop building theme that Hasbro's been building with the previous Sandtrooper releases.  And with the whole Black Series Deluxe line, I'm wondering if/when we might see another Sandtrooper with a Dewback.

The Imperial R2 unit is a nice addition here, too.  I'm a little surprised that it's taken this long for Hasbro to offer up a repaint of R2-D2, but I don't think there were any other R2 units that merited being placed in this line.  An exclusive multipack like this seems like the best vehicle for doing that.

I'm probably going to order this, but holding off for now.  I like the v3 Sandtrooper, but it's just an easy repaint.  I like the black astromech, but a little pricey at $25.  The red Stormtrooper looks a little ridiculous and I really don't need a third TIE Pilot.  Add in that this is $25-30 per figure...meh.  This is one of those sets that I don't feel I'd miss much if I never ended up getting it.

So is that TIE Fighter Pilot a repack with a name or is there something different about him?  I'd like to get the OT figures from this, so i guess I'll pre-order and sell the Crimson Trooper and possibly the TIE Fighter Pilot if he's a duplicate?

The TIE pilot is Lt Oxio. Helmet paint variation at least.

We'll see.  I will not be at all surprised if this is a straight repack.

I finally broke down and ordered this set last night. The way Hasbro exclusives have been going lately, I was worried once it sold out they would never get any more in.
