Was yours shipped in an extra box? 

Mine was in the pre-packaged thin carboard box that was the exact size of the set.  They just slapped a shipping label on it.  Luckily it arrived in great shape.

Granted the overall packaging of the set is fairly large, but it needs to accommodate three carded figures vs. the loose figures you get with the troop packs.

I think you are mixing up the Amazon Obi-Wan 3-pack with the  Pulse "The Rescue" Mando set. ;)

Mine arrived today, too.  And I agree - the size of the shipping box is ridiculous.  But I guess trying to get a shipping box thatís appropriately sized for this might have been problematic.

The size of the shipping box that I got with this set seemed ridiculous to me until I opened it to see how big the packaging/box was for this set.  I understand that the presentation here is much different, but the size of this box compared to the size of the troop builder 4-packs is crazy.

Now that I have the set in hand, it really is kinda sad that I paid $75 for this box of repaint/kitbashes when just a week earlier I got 4x Hoth Rebel repaint/kitbashes for $45.  Oh well, joke is on me I guess for buying it.

I received mine, too.  It's okay.  But not great.

Obi-Wan - The figure sculpt is identical to the single carded Obi-Wan, but with different paint apps for the shirt.  The softgoods are different, and there's a backpack included.

Purge Trooper (phase 2) - It looks really good.  But again, re-use of parts seems to be the theme of the day.

Teeka - I haven't opened this one yet.  But outwardly it looks like the Offworld Jawa in Tatooine colors, and with different accessories.

Iíve never regretted my decision to stop watching after they killed off Carl for no reason whatsoever. The show really started out so strong too. Looking back I think losing the original show runner (Darabont?) was the kiss of death.

This series finally wrapped up and I'm glad its done.  I felt invested in this show after watching the first 6+ seasons that were mostly good.  The past few seasons felt like work with the plots being repetitive and the writing seemed to be a lot worse as well.

They're offering up a couple of spin-offs.  One with Rick and Michonne and one with Daryl and Maggie.  I'm not interested in either one.

Same.  Itís another perfectly okay but totally unexciting offering from Hasbro.

Itís official.  Theyíre going out of business. 

Weíll see if it ends up being a problem, but I did just order a mini-bust from them because with shipping it was $35 less than my preorder with Gentle Giant.
