I can find uses for those easily in any diorama or whatever, even if they're not film things.  I'm kinda hoping they're in the movies though.  I really was impressed that they did seem to heed some collector griping there though, and while keeping the sentiment of big firing cannons, made them at least "fit in" and not look so silly.  Now if they'd only do something similarly clever for Deluxe figures, if those continue in some fashion. 

Almost everyone in the US does.  It's pretty common.  It's also a cycle and something they don't teach you about in High School for basic adulting later in life haha.

Gotta say I'm shocked more people aren't talking about how nice these look.  5POA sure, but the results are so superior to what we had been getting I feel actually excited to own both these. :-\

Yeah what Darb said...  The helmets are similar but different for sure.

I still giggle at a guy in armor being a tanker because those hatches would NOT be easy to get in and out of with armor on, haha.  Hell they'd be difficult even if you only were wearing coveralls.

Looking at the bucket now, that's different.  The brow is larger, protruding some, and definitely not just a Stormie bucket.  Looks like one with a reinforced brow/dome portion.  Given the rifle, maybe having your head exposed on Mimban is a bad thing for all involved.  :-X

That's a tough bet to make.  In the past the EU guys, and FC in particular, tend to do well.  Can't think of one that hasn't really, even when they've been kinda ****** like that one Mara figure.

I have a low interest 1.5% cash back all purchases CC I use for this, auto parts, major expenses, and all my online toy purchases.  It has a moderate limit and I just prefer to have it for things like this and whatnot.  At least I'm getting something back too.  Like Rob said though, be wary of just opening CCs to do things randomly.  Too many open lines and you're screwing yourself over.  Even opening and quickly paying off/closing the card impacts your score negatively sometimes.  Depends where you are in life I suppose too, like owning your home, no plans to buy another, no new car purchase anytime soon, all that jazz.

I'm good on Cassians CHEWIE, I have some and help from people getting some cheap ones, but I won't mind getting the TVC one.  More concerned on getting Scarriff Troopers to be honest.

As the Mimban Trooper goes I meant along the lines of it's just a Stromtrooper, only dirtier, than something totally different like the Range Trooper.

Without having the FO flametrooper handy to look at I'm thinking maybe a single extra joint.  Either way it's not good enough but it's also not an impossible articulation mod either.


Good sleuthing on that Ant, that's a good memory man.

Calling BS too.  Nobody doing YT videos didn't tape this whole experience immediately.  Don't know the guy, don't care, just calling BS haha.

Yeah the Ithorian carcass made me sad too for some reason.  Like they're just guys out there, kinda ugly, and Jabba gets away with **** like that.  That's a travesty.

Funny he has more articulation than any Hammerhead figure we have btw.

That Wampa is a piece of work.  Happily add that to my collection, maybe a couple even because THAT Luke with the last one's limbs would make a pretty decent looking Hoth Luke I do believe.

Mimban Troopers look cool.  Remind me of the Hawkbat Batallion Clones from many many moons ago.  Even the basic looks neat and worth picking up a few.
