The case was hurting as it was... I wound up going with 2x each individuals on the Clones and Dutch. I'm splitting the order with a local buddy. Free shipping, and Rex was only $11.99, so it worked out for us to do it that way. We'll save over buying a whole case and eating the stormtroopers, the Hoth Luke, etc.
I'm not a big fan of that Chewbacca for the price, ultimately. I wanted it to put with the Leia but not for $13. I'll play the waiting game there.
I love the Clones for what they are... All are interesting armor, unique decos, and besides Doom, I think they're decent choices. I would've preferred a SA Phase I Bly to Doom, but that's me. I'm all about Phase I versions of guys like him, or Cody even. Cody would be absolutely awesome with a Phase I sculpt, especially since the early episodes made you think he and Rex were going to be best buds.
Dutch, I'll buy any Rebel Pilot... His preorder sold out on BBTS, despite "Rebel Pilots don't sell well" mantra, so I'm glad I got my order in on him at Entertainment Earth. He is, like so many others, a needed upgrade.
I'm not a fan of the pricehike but dealing with it... It is what it is, and if I still like figures I'm still into them regardless of the cost. I'll just be more particular on things like that Chewbacca, for sure.
Leia getting pushed back... Any theories why? I'm thinking it was a case costing issue, and she's bumped to the next assortment (since it's the last TBS one), but I'm not really sure why they'd go that route either. Perhaps they think a Stormtrooper makes more sense right now? With the toon and all, I mean. Leia maybe will balance out the next wave's cost to some degree perhaps.
