Added two more to the roster. I want a nice sized squad of troops. That's what I'm aiming for. Gonna whip up some packs for them, and pauldrons, and modify some weapons so they're more rigid and can hold them well, and then I'll be set.
From then on I'll wait for cheaper versions of this to be released.
I'm planning to make a hand/blaster set for my CT versions which # over 100. WIth poseable hands, the CT figure is really a good figure. Not able to kneel, but a running pose (with stand), or 2-handed firing pose are all doable, and he looks great dead too.
KBZ's shot of his army shows how well I think the old one blends with the new too. I saw people going ga-ga that the VOTC was so vastly superior, but in reality its sculpt differences are fairly subtle and the CT figure was good to begin with.
It's like the tree in Merry Christmas Charlie Brown... It just needs some care, and maybe a little effort, and it is a nice infantry filler.
My squad will look so lovely busting through some home-made city ruins, doing a nice "sweep & clear" of a local uprising.
Seriously, this figure is the first time in my adult life I have felt like a child when buying the new toys. I've "posed" them substantially... I'm even to the point I have a tough time calling it "pose" and really need to just fess up that I've been playing with these guys.
Deluxe Durge was doing battle with them just a while ago. hehe (Jesse James in no way endorses this behavior if you are single and looking)
