This line has been a dream for troop-builders. We have recieved miles of clones. I am curious as to what you all troop-build and why.
I will troop-build ANY army figure but only so long as it is SA (with few exceptions). They also do have to have a good sculpt. I will not troop build the animated versions of figures even if they are SA because I want as serious a look as possible to my formations. I still like the animated versions, though. The few exceptions to my SA requirement are the AT-AT Driver, and the Death Star Gunner. The reason for this is that I like the sculpts, they have plenty of articulation for what they are needed for, and I firmly believe that we will not see any improvement on the sculpts for those two figures...ever. I have decided NOT to troop-build the Saga T.I.E Fighter Pilots because I do not like the articulation and I am hoping for an improvement to those sculpts eventually. If they got caught up to the AT-AT Driver...they would be perfect, or at least as close to perfect as I would ever hope.
I am still on the fence about some troop-builders such as the Clone pilots and the AT-RT Driver. They are about as good as they will ever get, but I still hate the sculpts. They ARE troops, though and I will probably get around to adding them to the GAOTR.
The AT-TE Driver will not get built as it is because it is not even close to SA.
The next 2 waves of the Saga2 line have 4 figures I want to troop-build. The 442nd Siege Battalion, the 5th Fleet Security, the Elite Corps, and the 501st (after modifying Appo by removing his Pauldron). The Clone Engineer is the Evolutions sculpt and therefore not SA so I will not be building that one. The Battle Droids and Super Battle Droid do not appear to be SA, but if they are...they will be built.
The thing I miss the most right now is that there are no good-guys worth troop-building...not one. I want a SA Rebel Fleet Trooper, Endor Rebel Soldier, and Hoth Rebel Soldier so bad I can almost taste them. And SA rebel Pilots as well. The only good pilot we have is Luke. I want more...generic pilots for building as well. I know it is difficult as their faces are not hidden and that make it cheesy unless you do multiple head sculpts. But I think they have enough heads now to make about 20 pilots (which would be enough for me) and those heads could then be used also on ground troops. Gimme!
I hope the 30th line is as full of troop-builders! It looks good so far with the Parjai Trooper and the Galactic Marine! But i hope for the SA good-guys as well!
