    I was just watching Revenge of the Sith. IT makes me want to get Elite Series Grievous and Darth Vader.

    yeah, first i wish the baton extended like the way we've seen it does. and i wish that they had paired him with either another riot trooper, or a flametrooper, or a commander... or really any other kind of trooper.

    i don't think hasbro has quite grasped the army building concept. i'm pretty sure that they know that the black series figures are geared more towards collectors. with that in mind, it's curious that they wouldn't want to capitalize on the army building potential of the hypothetic two pack that i've laid out.

    oh well. i wonder how many poe's are going to wind up on eBay.

    Yeah, it would be a waste if Hasbro doesn't give us a two-pack of sorts like you suggested. I'm certain a Storm Trooper + another type of Trooper would sell.

    Maybe Hasbro is being cautious but this will different from the Marvel Legends two-pack released a few years back as the Star Wars franchise is way bigger and especially when we are getting movies in the new few years.

    Nothing really... all I did was shave the elbow sockets off to allow more mobility.

    trim where the joint connects to the arm so that it can bend further.

    i've done similar things to a lot of my clone wars clones.

    you can just never tell with hasbro. there are several things that i think people have wanted from them that would've required few resources, but it just never happens. so, who knows. hopefully we'll get something and hopefully the amazon set isn't the only trooper set we get.

    i'd love to see a 4 pack.. a different snowtrooper (perhaps with a black or black and white pauldron), a riot trooper, a trooper commander (white and black pauldron) and a flame trooper.. something like that.

    or hell, i'd love to see a three pack with the force unleashed stormtrooper commander, a phase 1 501st trooper, a phase 2 501st trooper, and a first order 501st trooper (made up of course) .. but something like that would be neat.

    The Barnes & Noble near my school had a Guavian Enforcer that I almost regret not getting.

    I can't seem to win with the Shocktrooper. I go to Walmarts that brickseek says they have him in stock (ones whose status was recently updated to "in stock") and I don't see any on the shelf. I find an employee to help and I show them the barcode, they either scan it or type in the UPC. Unfortunately, their little PDA always just says it's either "deleted", none in the back, or none on order. I think I've hit 4 Walmarts. I even went to a non-24 hour Walmart at night to see the toy pallet, but no box for Shocktroopers. I returned at opening to find the Shocktroopers weren't stocked. A few hours after i visit, the status on brickseek says "out of stock"...

    I can't win...

    Did they actually give it a cut off hand or did you just remove it? And is the helmet sculpt any better?

    Correct me if I'm wrong, but I believe it was reprted that it was intended to have a removable hand.

    And yeah, the Emperor's Wrath Vader has a removable hand. The helmet doesn't seem like it can come off though. But the see through feature is nice :)

    Well, found an Enforcer. Now for Phasma...


    I wonder which of the first two waves I'll finish first. Either I find Phasma, or the movie comes out, I end up loving Finn, Rey, and Chewie in it, and I buy them first. Tough call :lol .

    I'm not going to the Disney Store tomorrow for Darth Vader, so I hope I can find one cheap online.
