Thanks DarthAcroyear. I'll keep my eyes out for a long, narrow box that says "Exclusive" and basic figures on the side. Sounds like it is different then the traditional figure box so it shouldn't be too hard to find.
Went out and braved the horrible snow storm were having in Utah last night and found nothing new. Saw the unleashed battle packs but they were a joke to me. So far it looks like the twins are a mid-west only phenom. I've not seen any reports from out west or back east. It is snowing pretty hard still here in Utah, but if it gives up, I'll try again tonight. I kinda of feel like Pinky and the Brain when Pinky asks Brain; "What are we going to do tonight Brain?" Brain replies (modiefied), "Same thing we do every night, Pinky. Try to find the twins again (instead of course, try to take over the world). I miss that show, which I guess says something about me.

      Still no sign of the Twins here in Atlanta. I'm hoping they will show up in the next day or so. I need the Twins and the corrected Bly and Gree to complete my collection of this year's figures.

I'm willing to trade my Twins set for the corrected Bly and Gree...

I passed on corrected Bly and Gree on Friday, Saturday and this morning.  Had I known I would have traded them for something, I guess army builders.

Not to stray to far OT here, but, how are these corrections and not just mistakes or accidental paint mixture changes?

I was stoked to find these last Wed. (here in Iowa of all places).  And to make it even sweeter, they were only $4.77!   ;D

I found the Twins today and holy ****, I just noticed the gave Obi-Wan a bit of gray hair near the temples?! Has this been noticed or mentioned anywhere yet? I thought he and Bail were straight repacks. Gray hair?!! :o

EDIT: Holy ****. After looking closely at my Obi-Wan #55, I can see the gray.... I had no idea.

And I HATE it. Man, that's ugly. Glad it's subtle.

EDIT: Damn, I was hoping Aunt Beru would be able to hold Luke but it's not looking doable.

I noticed this as I was looking at him in the package.  I thought it was different but I didn't get my regular Obi-Wan and compare.  Thanks for reminding me.  You're right about it though.  It looks funny...

Good point, I do not know.  That is what the kids are saying.

Good picture, although incredibly disturbing.  I cannot put my finger on it but I just do not see this happening. :P
