That's quite the haul Rob! (The extra troopers, and the sizable bar behind them...) Gotta love it when things work of like that.

I don't even drink, all that stuff is my wife's.   :)

By the time the Pulse order ships, I'll be at 24 Stormtroopers for about $180... $7.50 each is pretty awesome these days.

Wow, no kidding. I barely remember the last time a basic figure was under $10. Between the 24 total Rogue One and Remnant troopers I've bought lately I was at about $18 per figure...  I would have much rather paid $7.50 per

There was a Walmart near me that inexplicably got TAC figures in every week for several months, and had them priced at $3.50.  Paul lived right by it and would call me once or twice a week with what they had and snag it all for me... Stormtroopers, Yavin Guards, Galactic Marines, Airborne Troopers, Jawas, Death Star Troopers, Concept Snowtroopers and Stormtroopers... I must have bought 250 figures and close to half were Stormtroopers.  I was selling the coins in lots on eBay and getting back probably close to a buck each too.

To this day I still think that TAC was my favorite line (outside of TVC/VOTC/VTSC). It was such a great period in collecting.

My replacement order from Shop Disney just got here.   :o



I swear, all I did was ask if they could look into the tracking number and they just wrote back and said they created a replacement order since I never got them...

You have to applaud them for being responsive.  I wonder if they would be equally responsive to some of the bad paint apps on a lot of figures that have been shipped?  I've seen some that look really, really bad.  I mean, so bad that they probably couldn't even be sold as factory seconds to Tunghori.

Yeah I donít know.  Iíve only bothered to look at the one figure that I photographed.  Iím in the middle of unpacking the collection after my move in MayÖ maybe Iíll go ahead and check them all later.

Just check the date stamps, apparently: Date stamp 12021 bad. Date stamp 12051 good.

Since Pulse is the later shipper, I hope that means they will all be 12051!

Hmm.  My two sets from ShopDisney = 1x 12021, 1x 12041.

Out of my 8 troopers, the only one with a slightly 'splotchy' visor/eye paint (paint a bit too thick) is in the 12041 box.

Mine are 12031 and 12051. Paint looks good on all of them. The eyelenses are a little heavier than the normal (carded) trooper, but overall it looks great.

I can't read the damn things at all (looking on the figures themselves).  But I opened my second box and they were thankfully all good.

Thanks to whoever posted the photo so I could just check the box.  SMH...

I've got 21, 41, and 51 sets... I'll try to open them at some point soon to check.

Also, where in the movies do these orange guys show up... Rogue One?  Trying to figure out where to put them.

It seems that the pauldrons aren't just exclusive to Sandtroopers. I'm pretty sure I saw at least one Stormtrooper with a pauldron in the spaceport in SOLO, and there was another that was a squad leader in season 2 of The Mandalorian on Tython.  And there's also the upcoming Black Series release of a Stormtrooper with a pauldron (plus a backpack) as seen on Jedha in ROGUE ONE.

In the Jedi Outcast video game, the higher ranking Stormtroopers used pauldrons, so Iíve always used them as squad leaders in displays.
