Yeah, I definitely already know that alright, but unless I get those OCD meds, no can do Travis. I've been
a packaged and loose completist
Hasbro's bitch for almost a decade, so there's no stopping now!
Also, is that just the packaging's artwork behind the figures, or is it some big type of figure stand/display base? I can't tell...
I think I figured out a way for me to soften the blow on this one, at least as far as some of the loose figures go. I've been meaning to pick up some extra Jedi and Seperatist figures for my AOTC Arena diorama that I plan to put together soon (since I don't usually buy extras of Prequel figures beyond just the usual two), so I can at least use the Dooku, Luminara, Kit, and Ki-Adi for that. I'm fine with the exclusive Vader figure too. I'm cool with the Royal Guard (since that's essentially an OT army builder there, and VHTF one at that), and I won't even mind having an extra 3PO since that'll work in some OT dioramas nicely as well.
So I guess the only figures I'm really gonna waste some money on are the Bail and Palpy. I do like the packaged look there too. It kinda reminds me of the much smaller POTJ set that was exclusive to Mexico. It's a unique display of the figures that we don't usually get, and with the attractive window box and all, I can almost sorta stomach this thing. Almost.
Still sucks though!
