Also too bad the Wookiees aren't a bit different than they are... imagine how awesome it would have been to get an all new Wookiee or two in this set. 

I desperately want all-new, posable sculpts of Tarfful and Merumeru.

Kashyyyk Trooper
Panning droid
Lando in smooth street clothes 8)

Finally laid hands on my first Kashyyyk soldier today, and I'm quite impressed! ;D

I don't know if anyone has mentioned this, but the color scheme on the Order 66 camo clone trooper ends up looking pretty decent when placed next to the scout guy.

Got the super neat-o Mustafar panning droid from HTS today. :)

I got the panning droid today and I'm having a blast with him! :D He's a really fun little guy. I like his coloration/deco and all his little arms. This is stellar accessory set as display stands for Anakin and Obi-Wan, but the droid himself is a neat figure, too. I'm definitely getting a second to set beside the Mustafar playset's lava pool, to mine ore with the miner guy. I love how all 4 of the pieces, the droid, bucket, platform and lava all interact. I dug out Mustafar and spent much of the evening trying out all the possibilities. ;D LOL I had forgotten the legs attach to the lava, and just a minute ago tried out that set-up on my desk. I actually managed to get A & O into a pretty decent fighting pose right on top of it:

I have a question for those who bought the '08 Anakin: Is the torso exactly the same as the original Evo? Is his windpipe still so bloody big it limits the posability of the head??

I like the AOK one with the lighter brown and higher contrast between his fur and dark highlights. His eyes look open, more visible than the other and the ROTS SP. He looks like he's really in a rage. The wash on the face gives great detail too. They didn't paint the finger nails on either of the AOKs though.

Actually, the fingers and nails were painted on the ROTS Sneak Preview ones. Not sure about the fingers on the heavy gunner, but the nails are painted. Neither the fingers or nails on the AOK are painted.

Got some stuff yesterday.

Assault on Kashyyyk
Jedi Evolution
'08 Obi-Wan
SA 501st

Found one 501st, but still haven't seen a Kashyyyk trooper or any other Wave 1 besides Anakin, Obi-Wan and Nudo.

I bought the set yesterday for the Wookiees. I'm a sucker for Wook variations, even so slight as these.

But why the hell are they still using that worthless gummy plastic on the stormtroopers? ??? Anyone else get exceedingly warped legs on theirs? Mine look absolutely crippled.

As for Vader, I have no memory at all that VOTC Vader had no ankle joints. ??? Mine's packed right now in preparation for a move, but I would've sworn he had ball-jointed ankles....

Those are beautiful. I wish I had the patience to custom build stuff like that, because I have some very specific ideas of how I'd like to display my figures. I use those white spice risers your pointed out in OCB's pics. I like to economize my space by more or less displaying them rank and file like that, as opposed to enormous dioramas and scenes. Graduated shelves are great for keeping the guys in back as visible as the ones in front. Those are a good start, but they're kind of uglyish. So, customized SW motifs like your cantina alcoves and SD bridge are perfect!

I'd also like my shelves to be pegged to keep all those boogers from falling over all the time. I tried pegging the risers with Ultarama pegs, but the holes came out retarded. (If I can't accomplish that, imagine the trouble I'd have scratch building this sort of thing!)

Have you pegged any of your display shelves??

I need the Destroyer Droid and Jango coins. I have an extra Ep IV coin. Might have some custom fodder you could use. Check out my trade thread. Thanks.

I have an unopened McQ Fett for your unopened McQ Rebel. :)

I'm in it for the Wookiees. :D I like the new paint and the use of those bandoleers. I still want new Wookiee sculpts though. Merumeru and a proper Tarfful for starters.

That's queer.  The pistol in my set is black.

Mine's black too. That's a really close shot with the plastic completely drowned in flash.
