When yinz guys get 'em I'd be curious to hear your impressions.  5POA hasn't been my bag, but I have found I can articulate them with semi-ease, and I really dig all the bonus gear.  That said I don't really need Phasma, or a Flametrooper, or a regular Trooper, as I have all 3...  Kinda chews up some of the set.  Also not a fan of the Snowtroopers due to the skirt bit.  :-\

Still I REALLY want that heavy gun to cast.  :-X

Same with the baton/armor/shield

Just got the sets I ordered - one to keep in package, two to open...

I've only opened the Desert quadrant of my first opener box so far since that gives me access to the Riot and Heavy Artillery troopers - both are great, really wish they had just released these as single carded figures. Like why couldn't the 2nd Stormtrooper that came out have omitted the blaster and included the baton and shield instead? What could the difference in cost have been pennies?

The Heavy Artillery Trooper armor vest is very cool - probably could get it off and put it on a SA trooper, but I'm not going to bother - maybe if the TBS line at WalMart sticks around, Hasbro will release a SA version of this character just by combining the 5POA version's accessories with the SA trooper figure, seems like a no brainer if you ask me.

Got my set last night and the box/design is really cool.  Great presentation of the figures.

Like others have said, really hoping the Riot Guys and Heavy Artillery guys get a re-issue as I'd buy another of each, for sure.  :)

I canceled my preorder... I think this one has $29.99 written all over it.
