Yeah, Amazon still has a Nov 20th date for these, so I'm expecting to see them just in time for the Holiday crunch...

I think I'll just end up ordering them from Amazon and thusly avoiding the holiday-packed TRU crowds full of Grandmas/Moms fighting over the last "hot" toy for their bratty kids  ::)

And the difference on the Adi and Stass figure is?  Just looks like one has a worse paint job than the other.  I feel like a total tool for buying the first few sets.  I feel obligated to add these other hunks of crap to the set.  Nothing like those action poses for the council scene either.  I wonder what kind of salaries these people make coming up with these bright ideas ???  Once again another great idea gets flushed down the can.

The worst part of it is (as someone brought up before) Hasbro can now point at the Pieces of **** and say "See, See, multi-packs don't sell" ::)

It should be rephrased that overproduced crappy multi-packs dont sell. On the other hand the K-Mart Cantina set #1 was a great idea, but way overproduced.  Its unfortuneate that the outcome of these sets gives us a little input of future multipacks.

Hasbro really screwed these sets up.  ::)

They can't even match the right figures with the right names. That's not Agen Kolar in set 3, thats Eeth Koth. Agen Kolar was in either set 1 or 2, I can't remember which. And what the hell is the difference between Stass Allie and Adi Gallia?
The statement below is true.
The statement above is false.

I know it sucks. I wish they would do some cooler sets, like the Lars family.

Well, I got my sets tonight and they are everything I thought they would be and maybe a bit more?

Here's a shot of the circle together...



And another view of the "Circle of Suck".



Of interest:

- Adi Gallia and Stass Allie are EXACTLY the same, just Stass is a bit darker.  They look very poor next to each other.   :-\

- Shaak Ti only re-uses the arms and head of the Saga version.  Very nice new legs and torso, along with a great new paint job on the head!

- Agen Kolar is EXACTLY the same as the PotJ version.  On a positive note, they did at least give him the saber for his belt.

:)

Jeff, any chance you can remove all those random "third wheel" (standing) figures, so we can see what the Council would more accurately look like with just 12 seated Jedi (nevermind the fact that we can't get the correct 12 Jedi seated in there)...  I'd like to see a shot of how it should look, in a not so crowded state with all those dumb visitors intruding in on the Council's party.

Also, can you please straighten out Ki-Adi too?  He should be flashing his upskirt shot to Shaak Ti, not Plo-Koon.  That's just wrong.  Besides, Plo's already getting an eyeful from that hottie Yaddle from across the way...

No what I mean, Vern?   :-*

Still looks cool to see it all put together like that though.  Congrats on completing the Circle of Suck.   8)
