    Shweeet!

    I've had these on pre-order for so long at BBTS!
    Hope they get stock there as well soon!

    Wow... I've been waiting for Nightbird for years. And now I simply outgrown my need for her - not to mention she looks dissapointing.

    I could have sworn these have been out as preorders for a long time now.

    I know BBTS has had them on their site for the last couple years or so for sure.

    It's true - I've preordered her in 2008, canceled in 2009.

    I'm kinda scared to order from them because that Nightbird almost looks like a Hard Rubber action figure. which means the paint may easily chip off.

    I know scale-wise she's only about as big as a Scout/deluxe

    Didn't think these would ever get released. Had the Bailiff on preorder when it was on clearance for $20. BBTS made a mistake with the price and never honored it.:(

    So, how are they look and feel in-hand? What are their size and quality? Overall impression?

    I would love to see a photographic comparison of this vs. the TFCon one (if anyone might have gotten both - probably unlikely).

    Darn. I guess this would be too small to make an Abebird out of.

    So, any word on a new batch of Quint-01? I've had that on pre-order with BBTS for over a year. :-\

    posted this over at the other forum. Might as well post it here too

    I just got in the mail my Nightbird and Bailiff. I decided to crack open the Nightbird first. Kinda pricey for the two but its 3rd party and we want them to survive right? Here are some pics I've taken. Enjoy

    I wish the elbow had a rotating joint and its obvious the head doesn't move. I like the nungchuks have slots in the backpack for storage. I don't think the blades on his forearms come off. Or it might, but I didn't want to force it out. The blades are super sharp so this toy/collectible is definitely not recommended for kids. The legs are on ball joints at the hips, which I was pleasantly surprised.

    And here are the pictures of the Bailiff. I like him a lot and his bigger than I anticipated. I think he came out really well. He has articulated fingers and the head came out well.

    And here's a group pic of all the Quints. Yes, I had to have them all!
