Nice finds. I'm still not sure about these, but some of those pieces look good.

Thanks for the pics Cy! I have to agree with JT: some of them look really cool, but I'm stil not sure about all of them. I might be interested in the AF sized ones, even if only the Capital ships are that size

Is it me or do they both look weird?

Same industrialisation process as the old Micro-Machines (same factory ? Could be...). Same soft plastic badly molded and same layers of paint ...badly applied. Would have been great ten years ago in 1995 as the MM were. Looks a little "vintage" nowadays.
They are pricey, hard to find and not really attractive. I could be interested by some of them but to me they are cheaply made minis sold for big bucks... I still need to see the final products to be sure but the Jedi Starfighter and the X-wing are jokes... Even the MM were better and it was as previously said, ten years ago.

If any of the actual sculpts look REALLY good, there's an easy (albeit it poisonous if you're not careful) way to clean the stupid paint off, I can detail it later once it can be determined if it's even worth it... any idea what the booster pack price will be?? if it's cheap enough, I might get me one sleeve and check 'em out when they hit :beard:Isobaws&

In the UK it's £15 (but you can get it cheaper if you buy 6 cases or look around - I've seen it for £12)

And the Starter Pack I've seen for £20 (cheapest £18)

Yeah, they're both warped and fat in an odd way - the fat part could be photography, but the warped part is materials.

These aren't removable from their bases either, are they.

if the material they used still remains the same, there'll be great disappointment to some of us. My WOTC AT-RT is still "kotow-ing" to its Titanium 3" counterpart after months of putting its body right up. ....... hopeless. Nothing I do can put it up straight.

They should have used the sturdier plastic they already used on the Hailfire Droid for example, instead of this bad warping plastic...:sad:
