    It probably depends on the design. For Vader, it's designed to come apart so you can see the details in the face mask under the helmet. But, it seems like it would be just as easy for them to make all the helmets removable from the stand instead of going through the trouble to secure some of them on as they have. Who knows the reasoning but knowing Hasbro, I'm sure it's because it somehow helped with their profits.:D

    Plus, Bloodsport has one of the greatest 80's movie songs... Fight to survive!!!!

    I loved Van Damme in his hayday. Lionheart, Thailand Bloodsport (aka Kickboxer), Cyborg, and Universal Soldier were some of my faves. But, if it is a head to head with Segal I think Stevie takes it because he did Under Siege. I still love that movie.

    I'm trying to decide what is priority. So I thought I'd ask you opinion.

    What do you like best for Death Trooper, Hasbro Black Series or Disney Store Elite Series?

    Neither are best considering the SHF and Bandai kits are both coming. But between the two you mention, the Elite will be slightly bigger, have diecast but more limited articulation. Sculpts will depend but it's possible the Elite may be slightly better. Basically, if you want a more menacing statue, Elite and if you want a more poseable action figure, BS. The only figures I prefer Elite over BS is some of the droids because they have limited articulation anyway and it's nice to have diecast droids and troopers I think look better as bigger brutes. So far, that's just the FO Flametrooper. I see the death troopers as elite, special forces type troopers so ironically, I probably won't go with the elite series. I'll get SHF, Bandai and BS if I find it on clearance and might also get an elite but only on clearance.

    Forget the Death Trooper. I want the Death Trooper Specialist.

    I actually really like the table.

    But it's also very very loud so my wife is not as big of a fan haha.

    Heh, noisy toys. It's a nice set and a cool idea for an exclusive, but I have no plans to recreate that particular scene with the figures, so the table/hologram would just end up in a box. I just want Obi-Wan.

    I'm thinking the same. Except I know I'll regret it. I'm going to try to stay strong and see what happens if it remains available for a while.

    ON another note, I saw the whole RO wave last night and the Death Trooper and Droid look really good! I am prepared to spend my monies on them. Troopers in ever version I can and still undecided on the droid...Bandai kit is always the best best but I'll probably get the BS version if I find it on clearance.

    Some random shots

    **Rant Ahead**
    I hope the new BS Rogue One 6 inch figures are good. The Episode 7 FO troopers were completely meh. Single jointed elbows is a no no for a $20 figure. The previous Stormtroopers blow the newer ones out of the water when it comes to articulation. I love the BS 6 inch line and am a sucker for anything trooper related, but I can't see paying $20 for a figure with bare bones accesories and single jointed anything.

    Found the gigantic BS 6" scaled TIE Fighter for $42. Got the last one. I really just want the pilot. TIE is too big to keep. If anyone is in the Rochester area, you can have it for $35 (minus the pilot).

    I can't take a picture of it now, as my room is a bit of a mess, but I finally have a TIE Fighter! The box was pretty jacked up (part of it was even torn open), and unfortunately some of the edges on the wings are a bit damaged, but it overall looks fantastic! I might even be able to fix most of the damage, we'll see.

    Oh, and is there any storage for the pilot's pistol while he's in the TIE?

    I don't think there is. Only the smaller 3.75" scale one has storage for the gun IMO, under the cockpit hatch

    That would've been cool, but I actually managed to find a spot. The right hand handle on the back seat has a slot in it which fits the gun pretty well.

    Lol, was in Target the other day and saw two BS Tie Fighters, $49.99 each. Was at Forbidden Planet in the city yesterday and found the same damn thing for $189.99.

    Damn, they are $50 at Target now? If I hadn't ended up getting two for $35 each, I'd be pissed to have paid more.
