I agree, aside from the gangly, slightly off proportions, the Gunner is an amazing sculpt.

I got my set today, and though my Luke seems to be much better on the paint apps than average, I agree. I am a bigger 5 POA fan than SA, which is why i dread the possible end of that line. The new DS Gunner is a prime example of articulation gone amok. It just doesn't look right. A lot of this is seamless now, like with the new Stormtrooper, so this is curious. I've been lobbying for years for a happy medium on articulation, but Hasbro is not interested in that at all. They're doing amazing work overall, with lots of legendary figures recently like Yak Face (some of the 5 POA Solo figures, Moloch, Quay Tolsite, as well) and hopefully the QA concerns with this wave are just a blip.

For some reason, despite the galaxy of 3POs and R2s I have, I really want this set.

I expect the other six at the least, along with one or two more expansions into the 'What If' category (Wedge, Slave Leia, etc.). The vac metal issue is a great point, though. That may present some problems. Though the Droids fans among us might appreciate less shiny versions of 3-PO/R2. Next year being the ESB anniversary we'll likely see more of these from that film.

If that is real, I will FLIP.

Beyond sad.

RIP Peter.

Part of me wants it to be over too. That's just general fatigue that surfaces every few years. The crummy thing about 3.75 reducing or disappearing right now is we're about to enter a period where Hasbro can maybe cycle back to something we're more accustomed to. With the movies taking a break for at least a year or two, and TV being the primary focus, there is now an opportunity for Hasbro to play a little bit of catch up. Mostly that would be in the Disney era, but there's a lot of great characters from all these recent movies that I'd love to see. And Clone Wars, Rebels, on and on.

If 3.75 gets squeezed to TVC, which simply doesn't and won't have the breadth the 5POA line does, it's probably not long before the credits roll on this segment. It would be my cue to exit also.

It's probably the best Han likeness in this scale ever. Too bad it's on the older trooper body, but I liked that one so much I have like twenty of him or so.

The boxed idea is great!

I wouldn't mind the Ceremony Leia on a vintage card. I'd personally love redos of the Medical Frigate duo since I wasn't a fan of the soft goods, but I don't know we'll ever go back there.

I'd love to see some of the Black Series figures on TVC: Snowtrooper Commander, Wedge Snowspeeder, Dagobah Luke, Toryn Farr. Also Jawas, though I suspect those are on deck very soon and Mosep. Maybe Captain Rex.

I'd also love to go back a bit and just go nuts like Ephont Mon, Hermi, that kind of thing.

I didn't order either, but i have to say I'm enjoying myself right now. I feel a twinge of regret passing it up, but it remains I have nowhere to put it/other priorities. Still, I look forward to all the pics and fun people have with it.

Received my set today, no issues on packing. Never received any shipping notice/updates though.
