The guy selling these isn't a customizer, nor known for selling customs. Not much is being said on them, but right now I'm thinking they're NOT customs but something due out sometime in the not-too-distant-future.
Are they cool? I think so... I'm a fan of the non-film figures so long as they're good figures on their own. Price is up in the air (as with everything else anymore)... I'd like an army if I could find them for a good price. I'd like a squad if I could find them for a fair price. I'd like a team if I could find them for an unfair price. I'd like 1 if it's going to be too expensive for my tastes/spending limitations.
I like the pauldron, and I like the colors. Could use a little more color, but he's cool as he is too.
Like other non-film (and non-eu even) repaints, I like it. The films aren't "everything" for me as a collector/army builder.
